The SmartBiz Loans Mission
To equip every entrepreneur with reliable access to smart capital.
The SmartBiz Loans team has worked with tens of thousands of small business owners to help them acquire the right funding at the right time.
Entrepreneurs are truly the backbone of the U.S. economy and their success is even more important as the pandemic continues to spread.
However, not every small business owner is an expert in all areas of business operations or has the ability to keep up with breaking news that can impact their livelihood. The SmartBiz Small Business Blog aims to fill knowledge gaps with easy-to-digest information about all areas of business operations.
About the SmartBiz Editorial Process
We are committed to responsible, accurate, understandable, helpful, and up-to-date content. Our aim is to equip every entrepreneur with reliable access to smart capital, and provide trustworthy resources to support that.
The SmartBiz editorial team has a broad knowledge base around small business topics including legal, financial, marketing, employee management, credit, and more. Working closely with business owners every day, we identify issues that touch small businesses and create content to educate and inform.
Our editorial team manages all content, which is reviewed by the SmartBiz legal team before circulation or publication. The steps include:
We use credible sources that include peer-reviewed journals, government agencies, research think tanks, and professional organizations. We closely follow major publications, news programs, and industry experts to create content.
Editorial content is fact-checked for accuracy, timeliness, and relevance. We use primary sources and authoritative sources, including interviews and government and industry websites, data and documents.
After the writing is complete, various members of the SmartBiz Loans marketing team review for clarity and transparency. The legal team also reviews to assure that content is compliant and in line with best practices.
When information changes (like the Federal Interest Rate, small business legislation, etc.), we edit published blog posts with the latest, fact-checked information available at that time. We stay on top of financial news, trends, and breaking news within the small business. We’re always monitoring the small business space and financial industry to keep content fresh, accurate, and relevant.
Our blog posts contain information and quotes from reliable small business sources we have vetted for accuracy.
