How we review brands, products, and services
Our team of business experts spend hours researching the banks, lenders, software, and other financial services you use to make sure you have the most comprehensive information possible to help you make informed decisions.
We collect and analyze data, review industry ratings, talk to customers, and speak with the individual brands to confirm pricing and terms. Our data sources are thoroughly fact-checked, and every review, comparison, or article is edited for clarity and integrity.
We understand the important role your business plays in our economy and commit to being accurate, candid, and fair as we share important information you can use to help your business grow and thrive.

How we make money
Our purpose is to help decision makers like you find the right tools and services to grow your business—and we want to grow our business too. We’ve assembled and paid a small but growing team of professionals focused on helping the small business market.
We partner with certain brands who compensate us when readers choose to purchase a product or service based on our recommendations.
These partners do not decide what opinions we publish or how we research or analyze our recommendations—but they may influence how some products and services appear on the site. And—because they are our partners—we may take into account how interested customers are in our partners’ services when designing our review methods.
Our writers and other staff are not directly compensated by our brand for any positive or negative reviews, nor is staff performance based on reviewing brands or products favorably or unfavorably.
Again, our bottom line is you. If we can help you grow your bottom line too, then we’ve done our job—no matter what compensation we might receive.
