The online market has created lots of opportunity to buy software online. The choices are unlimited which can work in the consumers’ favors, while at the same time work against them
But before buying software how does one actually find the software they need, and at a cheap price at that?
How to search for software:
1. Know your options: free software, trail software, actual licensed software. Free software- usually made by enthusiasts or programmers who spread and allow their software to be used by the public. Such products are either a curse or a blessing. Be weary.
2. Trail Software- we all know this try Windows Microsoft for a few weeks and then pay up. Good for brand names.
3. Licensed software- yet sometimes we need the full version to do some small, but significant job. For example, convert files on your CD to mp3 files, or a software that teaches you how to write in Mandarin.
Finding the best deals on the software you want:
The first step if you know the brand, or even if you don’t know the name of the software, is to optimize your search.
In Google or Yahoo search, try typing in coupons on software, or software coupons. You will have to option of typing in codes that will give you some kind of percentage of the regular price of the software.
But it’s difficult to sort out all the coupons for all the available software that MIGHT match what you need. Likewise it quite troublesome when some of the coupons codes don’t work, and therefore the discount is not offered. Therefore look for websites that pre-categorizes all the available software, and allows you to do a search of the software.
It would be nice if each give software will have a coupon near by that gives a discount.
Websites that I have found that organizes the software by sub-categorizes, such as games, anti-virus, etc. and publisher name, and provides a coupon for each single software are:
