You are required to have at least 10 followers before you can use the free NewsBox option.  This is in place because NewsBox is a premium social platform.  We review all submissions prior to publication, even free content, to ensure it meets with submission guidelines.  

If you do not have any followers, NewsBox readers won't see your submissions.  If you invite people to follow you on NewsBox, your followers will see your submissions but other NewsBox readers will not.  You can still share links to your free submissions on your websites, e-mail or other social networks.

If you don't have followers and want to get the word out about your company, you can select the premium options.
