What happens after my article is published?
After your article is published on the site, CRMneeds.com will be sharing it on all our social media handles- Facebook, Linked in, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. We also update our subscribers on the latest posts through newsletters. We request that you do the same in reciprocation, as this is a standard business practice.
Is the article sent back to the contributor for approval after editing?
Our editorial team goes through every submission by checking for errors, factual inaccuracies and/ or changes required. In most cases, we will not send articles back to the contributor for approval. We will, however, communicate with the contributor if there are extensive changes required from our end.
