    Hi Hubbers,

    I have done little modifications in my original article but I still need your help.

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: How a B2B Trading Platform Enhances Small Business's Success

    You contradict yourself. In the first paragraph you write "The business model has been around for ages; since the era of the ancient Greeks and the Egyptians." Then in the second paragraph you say "B2B is a newly fangled transaction practice." It can't be both new and ancient.

    Who is your intended audience for this article? There is not enough detail in it for a business thinking about starting B2B trading. Most regulatory-type info varies from country to country and your article does not include any reference sources for this.

    Without meaning to be harsh, this article doesn't contain any useful information. You could improve it by concentrating on one country. Give your personal experience of trading B2B. Describe the challenges you met and how you overcame them in that country.

    Thanks Beth for your valuable suggestions and I will try to accommodate same by editing the article.

    #1. I try to give earlier reference and latest practices.i.e earlier traditional business model was used but now a days online b2b trading platform is used for same with added conveniences

    #2. My target audience is users of b2b trading platform i.e either seller or buyer on b2b trading..
    As per regulatory authority of a country is concerned, this article is not meant to specify same and expecting buyer or seller should know regulatory rules in their country.

    Anyway, I will try to improve my article further based on your suggestions.

    Hi Amalendu,

    I would delete the first paragraph completely. Many internet users have a short attention span and if they don't see the answer to their search straight away they will click away from your article. There is no need to give a history lesson of B2B. 

    If your target audience is people who are already trading using B2B, your article tells them nothing they don't already know. Think about why they would want to continue reading. Try to put yourself in their shoes.

    Maybe they have encountered a trading problem and want to know how others have dealt with similar issues? Or perhaps they are looking for names of websites or other sources of information that other B2B traders have found helpful? That's where your personal experience can be invaluable and will help others avoid the same pitfalls.
