We’ve been using the ContentGrow platform since its very beginning. It has helped complement our own newsroom in regional reporting thanks to its freelancer network across the region.

The platform is straightforward and intuitive to use. If you are a startup media, or a larger organization, and want to improve coverage and variety in an economical way, you should try ContentGrow.


We used to do everything on email. But because we operate on a digital cycle and publish lots of stories every week, we needed a system for sourcing excellent media talent -- people who could be reliable and pitch ideas every day from around the region. ContentGrow solves for this and several other pain points. The platform and contributors are a dream to work with!
