Contently Named to the Inc. 5000 List for the 4th Straight Year
Contently was founded seven years ago, and we started growing by any means necessary. In 2015, Joe Lazauskas, now our director of content strategy, wrote almost 30 e-books in a 12-month span. We were trying to define a nascent industry, establishing best practices about building audiences as soon as we figured them out ourselves.
The industry has improved so much since then. And we’ve had to as well. A few weeks ago, all of our employees gathered in our New York HQ to talk about our driving theme for 2018: smart growth. Our focus has shifted subtly to ensure that we only add the right clients to our customer base and set them up to drive long-term business results.
Plenty of innovative brands are well on their way to content mastery. And we’ve helped a number of them get there by providing the insights, resources, and products that marketers need to get the most out of their content programs. There’s a fine line separating smart growth and superficial results, and the people who work at Contently have spent years establishing the right methodology to help our clients.
That philosophy is resonating. Inc. unveiled its 2018 list of fastest-growing private companies, and Contently has earned a spot for the fourth year in a row. This honor comes on the heels of being recognized by both Forrester and Gartner as a leader among content marketing platforms.
It’s rare for companies to make the Inc. 5000 list four years in a row, and it’s a testament to the people who make Contently a special place to work. We’ve had our ups and downs as a pioneer in the industry, but I firmly believe we’re on the right path toward smarter, sustained growth. We’re also learning from our clients’ successes, seeing how their content has impacted their business goals and helped their teams scale.
Speaking of which, we’re looking to keep growing and improving ourselves. If you want to help us making Inc’s list again next year, click here to find out how you can join the team.
