At NewsCred, our mission is to help brands tell exceptional stories that drive business results. We believe this is the future of marketing, and it can make peoples’ lives better – and improve the internet, too.

The truth is, when we started NewsCred, we didn’t know much about marketing. But we did know, as individuals, that we weren’t satisfied with the way brands marketed to us. Fast-forward to today: We’re now the world’s leading content marketing company. We build software that supports marketers in content planning, creation, publishing, and analysis. We help brands speak to their audiences by providing both bespoke original content and content licensed from the world’s leading publishers. Finally, as pioneers in our industry, we provide unique professional services to ensure that our customers find measurable success through content marketing.

NewsCred exists because of the simply stated but enormously difficult challenge that marketers have in publishing wonderful content that actually helps us, the individuals that they are ultimately trying to reach.

Likewise, publishers are innovating on social platforms, experimenting with new ad models and even introducing e-commerce as a core offer.

Known for our powerful technology, creative content strategies and world-class editorial curation, we’re making publishing easier, faster and better. Our product suite includes end-to-end content solutions: the technology necessary to filter and curate relevant content; the publishing tools needed to design and build campaigns with speed and scale; and the editorial teams needed to bring authenticity to every content experience.

Over the past four years, we’ve built partnerships with over 2,500 amazing publishers, including The New York Times, The Economist, The Guardian, Getty Images, and more.
