The Most Sincere Form of Flattery – MCA Forums News
On April 16th, 2011, the MCA Forums announced their plan to expand content beyond the realm of a simple discussion board. Traditionally a place for Merchant Cash Advance industry insiders to converse, it seems the site will be adding “resources.” It’s an interesting word of choice considering there’s already a Merchant Cash Advance Resource, and that’s us. Perhaps they are trying to capitalize on our success since there is no shortage of that word in their public statement. As seen here:
“We would like to thank you for making MCA Forums the largest online community for your Merchant Cash Advance Resources & Merchant Cash Advance Networking! We’d love to hear your feedback. MCA Forums will be adding more valuable content, resources, and upgrades to the MCA Forums over the course of the next few months. Some key items we’d like your feedback on:
- Your ideas and resources you’d like to see on MCA Forums
- Contribute articles and resourceful information our readers would find of value in exchange for FREE backlinks and promotions to your services”
They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery and we’re happy to see them expand their somewhat popular site. Spreading the word about Merchant Cash Advance, sharing perspective, and providing the most accurate information is key to mainstream acceptance of this financial product. The MCA Forums success should benefit the industry as whole.
Similar to us, but yet strikingly different in the sense that they are revenue driven, whereas we have stuck by our mantra of Free Unbiased Resources. There is a cost to advertise on the MCA Forums. While it’s true, there are a few google banners on our site to cover the cost of web hosting, we remain committed to our independent outlook. It has served us well. Founded more than two years after the Forums, the Merchant Cash Advance Resource ranks better with visitors according to Alexa.
Comparatively, our readers peruse through 6x more pages on each visit, spend more time per page, and are twice as likely to navigate the site beyond the initial page they accessed. With our thousands of visits every month, funding providers, ISOs, and lead sources mentioned throughout our site benefit from click-throughs on a daily basis. we enjoy doing this at no cost to any of the parties involved.
The Merchant Cash Advance Resource is a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has authored over 100 industry relevant articles, and is proud to provide the public with unbiased information. Other sites may try, but there is only one place to get your “resources,” and that’s here. Thanks for reading!
