Software review

Hi all,

 

I got job offer to write software review. Payment method is fixed. I do have article writing experience, but not review writing. So I would ask from professionals how much does it cost per review (3-4 sentences) ?

 

Thanks,

Konul

You're getting a copy of the software, right? How are you going to write a review without actually using the software?

 

The last person who asked me to review software bailed when I told him it would cost $450 because he wanted me to benchmark antivirus software in a VM and download malware. 

 

You should do the same. Installing rogue software from the Internet is a really bad idea unless it's in a VM.

Client wants from me approximate price. Mainly it will be web applications, So I suppose he wants lower bid for it.

I sure hope that you are going to actually USE that software and write an HONEST review. To do anything else would constitute fraud and deception. I know this isn't Amazon, but they are cracking down on situtations where 5 star reviews and feedback are given for payment and the item was not ever used by the reviewer. Both the person who wrote that false review and the person who paid for it are being investaged.

Hi Kathy,

 

Of course I am going to test them . But the awkward moment is that I supposed that client understand that I am not going to write fake reviews. Thank you for notice. İ should directly inform my client about it.

Also job offers for fake product reviews on Amazon appear. Today I have flagged one. Some freelancers may not know that Amazon already have taken actions against fake reviewers.

I wonder how much malware it will take before her machine crashes.
