Overall Satisfaction with SourceForge

We use SourceForge both to acquire new customers for our SaaS product, as well as to find the right software when our team needs software to fill a new need. Of all the business software comparison and marketing channels we use, SourceForge has been the most effective with the lowest CPA. If you're a software company looking to acquire new customers and leads, I would highly recommend using SourceForge.

They've created some very cool software comparison tools that make finding the right software easy. If you have an open source version of your software, you can also upload it to the open source section of their site.


  • Easy learning curve.
  • Easy to find the right software.
  • Great reporting on your software campaign.


  • Design could be improved.
  • Tons of new customers.
  • Lowest CPA of all our marketing channels.
The SourceForge campaign managers have been very responsive whenever we have reached out.
