Content Audience & Story Angle

The CrossCheck blog audience is mostly owners, owner-operators and managers in the verticals listed in the right column.

Articles are generally written from a B2B perspective, offering merchants recent news or business-development tips as well as information intended to help their customers (business or consumer).

CrossCheck publishes unique articles (700-plus original words) and curated articles (600 – 750 original words about conferences, tradeshows or recent news items) as well as infographics or videos related to one of the targeted verticals.

The content always transitions to a call-to-action (CTA) about downloading a free guide or webinar.
