Put Your Article Here | Blog & Article Syndication
Our readers are always looking for remarkable content that helps them grow their careers and their companies. If your articles are relevant to our community -- and you would like to use our website to promote your content and demonstrate your expertise, we're pleased to help.
Published articles offer a link back to the authors website and our designated Expert writers are featured in our blogroll exchange, Expert profiles and automated RSS syndication.
CRMsearch attracts thousands of readers each month and the best articles receive dozens of comments, forwards, social media mentions and discussion. Over the course of a year, top articles may receive over 20,000 views from CRM software buyers, implementors and industry participants.
It is essential that all articles are relevant to this website and our community. Articles pertaining to the primary community themes, such as CRM software, SFA software, Marketing or lead management systems or CRM for call centers generally receive high readership and positive remarks. Similarly, articles pertaining to channel topics, such as social CRM, open source CRM solutions, cloud computing, customer experience management, industry specific CRM products, regionally specific CRM solutions or advice related CRM software selections or implementations are highly trafficked.
As our website is not a directory or clearinghouse, submitted articles or content must be helpful and particularly well written, in fact, what we call remarkable content. Our readers time is often their most precious commodity. So rather that inundate them with a flood of mediocre content, our approach is to present them with only the best content. Articles should be at 500 to 1000 words in length. Articles that include strong titles, research statistics, trends, fact-based opinions, bullet point lists and quotes from industry experts generally have the making to be remarkable content.
The most active constituency in our community includes C-level executives of middle market and enterprise level organizations. Over 60 percent of our reader community consists of IT and business practitioners who are consuming content in order to educate themselves as part of a technology purchase or software selection project. Educational articles directed to middle and executive management readers receive the most and highest rated readership.
Content submissions should contain strong opinions and be supported by facts, market research or quotes from knowledgeable or authoratative figures. Three overarching themes across nearly all content categories and mediums are research, recommendations and best practices related to software selection, software implementation, software optimization and using business software applications to solve business problems. Our readers appreciate articles which provide instructional advice or insight when selecting, implementing and/or optimizing CRM software systems - or speak to a business problem that can be aided with CRM systems or strategies.
We do not publish anything that comes across as vendor marketing or advertising - or self promotion. Our readers visit CRM vendors websites for that type of information. They visit CRMsearch.com in order to get balanced and candid content and opinion that is not available elsewhere. We also do not publish content containing personal attacks or inappropriate language.
We reserve the right to make edits to articles with your approval. Edits sometimes include fixing typos, modifying text with HTML tagging, optimizing images for size and placement or deleting extraneous information. Article authors have the final say with regard to their content and we retain the final say for what gets published. We're in this together and we want your posts to look great on the site.
We are pleased to publish or syndicate blog posts as well as podcasts or videos.
All content must identify the author with the content, either by full name or just first name. CRMsearch must validate author identity. No anonymous articles are permitted.
An Editor reviews all submitted articles, selects those that qualify and then publishes approved content to our site. Most articles are published as soon as they are approved, however, articles are sometimes delayed in order to accompany the publishing of similar topics. See our annual editorial calendar to understand the scheduled timing for content themes. Published content is then promoted on the website and through our social media channels.
