Contently Inc. was formed in December 2010 in New York City by Joe Coleman (CEO), Dave Goldberg (CTO), and Shane Snow (CCO) to build a better media world for publishers, creators, and consumers.
We created Contently because the world of publishing is changing around us. In the midst of the disruption of traditional journalism, digital advertising and social media, throngs of talented journalists and creative storytellers are striking out on their own as freelancers — and not necessarily by choice.
At the same time, nontraditional publishers are rising — brands, nonprofits, and lean new media companies — all of which need talent and efficient ways to manage, measure, and achieve business results with content.
Our passion lies in helping those freelancers succeed, and in doing so allowing anyone to become a publisher that tells stories people care about. No longer are we bound by so-called rules of who can be a publisher and who can't. The Internet changed that. At Contently, we're devoting our talents and resources to leveling the playing field and building a better media world for everyone who has a stake in it.
