SoftGuide References

SoftGuide is a brilliant platform for software distribution!
We made good experience with the reputation and the support of Softguide.
On the big online search engine you can reach a bigger range of people but we achieved the bigger success through Softguide. Of course everything needs its time, so especially in the startphase you should not expect too much.

Excellent portal, go on!
We noticed that advertising reaches a bigger range of people on the well-established online search engines but 99% of them are NO potential customers. These people leave our site after a few seconds and only generates us costs.

Because of that we can recommend SoftGuide.

"The cost-benefit ratio is outstanding..."
About two years ago we decided to purchase a SoftGuide listing. Today we can say that that was absolutely the right decision. For a modest fee, we regularly receive inquiries from potential clients who otherwise probably never would have come to us. But even more important is the fact that many of these potential clients have since become satisfied customers.
The cost-benefit ratio is outstanding, and the ever prompt and courteous service provided by the SoftGuide team makes the collaboration a pleasure for us.

Thank you very much!

We have worked with you for several years now and, even though it may not be customary, we would like to thank you for the extremely successful and enjoyable collaboration.

We would especially like to acknowledge the increase in the number of potential customer inquiries; some areas of our adata solutions saw an increase of up to 40%. Compared to other platforms, SoftGuide is far and above the best.

We are confident that it will remain that way.

From a software guide review by the Düsseldorf Chamber of Commerce:

The software guide is the market leader.... This Wolfsburg company lists even the smallest programs of purely regional importance and provides potential buyers with most up-to-date overview...

Dear SoftGuide Team,

I would like to express my appreciation to you!

The entry in SoftGuide brought me not only several potential client inquiries within the past few months, but, thanks to the listing on your site, it is now easier to find our business in Google searches.
I am looking forward to continued friendly, effective collaborations.

Many customers--or potential customers--come from SoftGuide, and the sales of our demo version alone easily cover the service fees.

"Amazed at the number of qualified inquiries"

At the beginning of this year we published our new software (CaterIT for catering services) on your platform, and we are amazed at the number of qualified inquiries that SoftGuide has forwarded to us.
This has resulted in a final sales quote of 10% so far!

We would like to thank you for the quick processing and will not hesitate to recommend you to others.

"A high number of inquiries in spite of a narrow market segment!"

Dear Sirs and Madams:

Thank you very much for the three very interesting potential customer inquiries I have recently received. We have already begun a new business connection with the first of the three.

Our industry sector is not very large (approx. 1500 leasing companies in Germany), so the number of inquiries received so far is all the more astonishing.

We will definitely recommend you to others; I have, in fact, already spoken with a potential SoftGuide customer who is very interested in registering with you soon.

Greetings from Munich,

Hans Krammer

I have been very pleased with the service and the results for over five years.
Because of SoftGuide's constant striving towards new platforms we profit from an increased number of qualified inquiries about our systems ATON-FEWO and ATON-HOTEL.
My only recommendation is that SoftGuide keep up the good work.

Sincerely, Reinhard Redlin

"Increased publicity"

Hello SoftGuide Team,

The qualified customer inquiries aren't the only thing worth praising. Because of the SoftGuide platform and the SoftGuide marketing campaigns we have been able to observe a sharp increase in our level of publicity within the past six months. The high number of links (SoftGuide partners and collaborations) has influenced the search results of (modern) search engines to our advantage.

Thank you for this outstanding service.

"Cost-benefit ratio is outstanding!"

I would first like to attest that SoftGuide is a thoroughly interesting advertising partner. Our business sells only high-priced software (KADIS) starting at 40,000 Euro. In the last 18 months we have won two customers through SoftGuide. Software revenues 325,000 Euro. One might ask, "Is that a lot?" Speaking for Lighthouse Datensysteme I say, "The number of customers is indeed modest but the earnings and, above all, the cost-benefit ratio are outstanding. The results speak for themselves.

Dear Sirs and Madams:

In the first two months of our listing on your SoftGuide platform we have been overwhelmed by feedback in the form of qualified customer inquiries. In addition, we've seen that we can profit daily from your marketing campaigns.
Keep up the good work!

We wish you a happy holiday season and much success in the coming year.

"We don't want to be without your services anymore"

Many thanks for your excellent service.
We belong to that group of customers that doesn't want to be without your services anymore. We will soon be offering additional products through your service. The main reason is the current broadening of the potential client circle in Switzerland.

"Even our niche product receives regular inquiries"

Dear Sirs and Madams:

SoftGuide sends regular inquiries for our highly specialized software. The billing method (proportional to the number of contacts) is wonderfully suited to our software because high, all-inclusive base fees are not practical for a low-priced niche product.

"Received new customers!"

Dear Mr. Joachim:

Service is difficult to gauge; one has to experience it! That is one of the reasons we decided to become affiliated with about a year ago. It was definitely a good, successful decision! We have initiated contact with many interesting businesses and have received new customers.

We are pleased with your service and hope your offerings continue to further develop.

"Worth the investment"

At first we were skeptical about whether it was worth it to pay 5.50 Euro per inquiry, but SoftGuide has proven us wrong. Today our biggest customers come from SoftGuide and our company automatically shows up in search engine results.

"Advertising through SoftGuide"

We analyzed the data from last year and have come up with the following results for our advertising through SoftGuide:
We received about 50 customer inquiries from you and four of those turned into contracts (which is not to say that we might not get even more).
An 8% success rate is incredibly high and shows that you have provided us with truly qualified contacts. This has been the best and most effective advertising investment our company has ever made.

"A professional software platform"

For over three years we have used the SoftGuide software guide to win customers for our electronic archive and, more recently, for our mobile internet office. We are very pleased with the service and support as well as with the end results. We are especially happy that the SoftGuide's services are continuously being developed, making them all the more appealing to us.

"Final sales quote of 20%"

"Good search engine entry"

We have used SoftGuide for 2 years. Our previously announced final sales quote of 12% has been corrected--it is actually 20%. We are constantly amazed: even though our product is ALSO entered in all search engines, SoftGuide has the better "words" and has even entered our product in lesser known search engines.

n average we receive 10 inquiries per month (niche product)--it has always been profitable, due in part to the respectability of SoftGuide.

At the same time, SoftGuide charges a fair price and does not remain stuck in its achievements but continues to develop itself further. Even if we personally did not need this service, it gives potential customers a good impression.

We see you as a good business partner in keeping with the saying, "One hand washes the other."
