How we're different:

Other Vendors Building an internal team
Advanced content workflow solutions that can scale to support hundreds of corporate users and approval steps. Limited customization and limited administrative reporting for internal management. Messy spreadsheets and text documents that result in confusing version control, auditing headaches, and missed deadlines.
Simple, intuitive tools for freelancer payment, reporting, and collaboration. Manual management of freelancer tax forms and payments, slow response time, and other administrative hassles. Time-consuming search for good talent, manual collaboration, and stressful negotiation and payments.
World-class, award-winning talent network of 45,000 professionals in 60+ countries: journalists, videographers, infographic designers, producers, photographers, and more. Hodgepodges of unvetted freelancers with unproven track records. Creatives haphazardly sourced from public marketplaces or by word-of-mouth.
Content strategists who assess your competitors, build you a customized content roadmap, and identify the team to fit your goals. A salesperson who can offer advice on what his or her other clients are doing. Unguided, personal online research of content strategy tips and tricks.
A constant flow of ideas and pitches from writers who understand your vision and your target audience. A feed of articles that others have already written. Story ideas you thought of with the help of your cat.
True engagement metrics—down to a granular, behavioral level per content piece—that help you to optimize content to build real relationships. Vanity metrics like social shares and pageviews that don’t demonstrate relationships with audiences. Counting up web traffic, shares, likes, and comments until your CMO realizes this has little correlation with real business results.
Integrations with WordPress, Tumblr, and Hubspot, plus any CMS via our publisher API. Integrations that actually require lots of expensive customization to work correctly. An IT guy saying, “Well, the website is working, isn’t it?”
