Why did Contently build a talent network?

Modified on Sun, 27 Nov, 2022 at 4:57 PM

The Contently network of freelance talent is over 100,000 strong. Each of those creatives is using their portfolio to display their best stories while participating in Contently's marketplace for freelance work.

We created Contently because we saw the world of publishing changing around us. In the midst of the disruption of traditional journalism, digital advertising, and social media, the world economy was in a slump, causing throngs of talented journalists and creative storytellers to strike out on their own as freelancers—and not necessarily by choice.

At the same time, nontraditional publishers—brands, nonprofits, and lean new media companies—are rising, and they all 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. 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 devoted to leveling the playing field for the hungry and talented creators and publishers out there. It's a tough task, but every worthwhile thing is.
