"I always believed that online software was the future. I knew it wouldn't fail and it would be huge. Somebody had to promote it... and I did." Daniel Raymond - Founder and Owner of Web-Based-Software.com
(PRWEB) June 9, 2010
Web-Based-Software.com, a leading directory of web-based business applications since 2001, has a new look and fresh content.
Several years before Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) became mainstream, Web-Based-Software.com was already listing hundreds of web applications. Its motto was "New Generation Software". Web applications were the next big thing and Web-Based-Software.com has shouted it out loud. With 10 niches, the directory is comprehensive and well-ranked in search engines, which is interesting for both its advertisers and software seekers.
"I always believed that online software was the future. I knew it wouldn't fail and it would be huge. Somebody had to promote it... and I did,", says Daniel Raymond, the directory founder and owner.
Web-Based-Software.com now lists SaaS-based products in 10 categories: Project Management, Time Tracking, Calendars & Event Scheduling, Finance & Accounting, HR Management, CRM & Help Desk, Issue & Bug Tracking, Document Management, Training & e-Learning and Social Networking. "What we do is provide software seekers with relevant, segmented software lists they can browse, which spares them from filtering search engine results themselves," states Sylvain Traversy, the directory editor and web marketing strategist.
In addition to software listings, Web-Based-Software.com also provides software reviews, all written by their team of experts. Daniel Raymond says: "Software descriptions are usually sales-driven. On the other hand, software reviews are analytical and provide feedback from a real user's standpoint. It makes a big difference."
Unlike many directories, Web-Based-Software.com doesn't look like a link warehouse with hundreds of categories. It doesn't promote itself as a directory where you can find everything. It lists web applications in 10 niches, period.
"We want to rank high in search engines, to get found quickly. However, once we get found, we simply want our visitors to forget the "Back" button of their browser. In other words, we want to be their one-stop place for business web applications. I already browsed Google to build our directory, so why would you waste time doing what I did already?" says Sylvain Traversy.
The directory content is managed diligently and each product is reviewed thoroughly before approval. Only 100% web-based software products are listed. Desktop products are not listed at all.
There are several advertising opportunities for software providers, with many benefits. Advertisers get the chance to drive targeted traffic to their website. "We are SEO experts and know how to drive traffic to our website, and that traffic, we drive it to your site as a result. It's a win-win situation for both ourselves and our advertisers," says Sylvain Traversy.
