The WriterAccess story.
How we built the business.

Learn how our small team of employees attained our big dream of creating a world-class platform that’s now connecting thousands of customers with professional writers, editors and content strategists around the globe.

2010
Where's all this great content going to come from? WriterAccess launched with a mission for businesses and agencies of any size to connect with the best freelancers.
2011
We entered the starting gate with five years of experience running a content marketing agency that supported 100+ clients, including Walmart, Best Buy, Salesforce, Iron Mountain, and many more.
2012
To attract the best writers, we decided to be transparent with rates and pay writers 70% for their expertise, and 30% to WriterAccess for the matchmaking magic.
2013
Our customers flooded us with grand ideas for betterment to rise above the pack, including Voice Recordings on orders and Conference Calling service. So we added loads of features.
2014
Tracking performance was top of mind for many customers, so we launched Content Analytics to help customers measure how their WriterAccess content was performing on the web.
2014
Translation service seemed like an obvious expansion to our talent pool to help our savvy customers with communication around the globe, so we crossed that off the expansion list.
2014
We launched our first Content Marketing Conference to gather with customers, writers, and fans to learn what's new and what's next with the content marketing revolution.
2015
We helped take our marketplace to the next level by introducing higher rates for higher quality work, and content strategy support with built-in creative briefs, customer journey maps and more.
2015
Pinpointing the perfect writer for a project is challenging, so we launched Writing Style Contests for competitive matchmaking that saves both customers and writers time.
2016
Year two of the Content Marketing Conference more than doubled attendance thanks to 40 speakers and four keynotes that truly wowed with fresh tactics and advice.
2016
Cumulative growth of 200% earned a spot on the INC 5000 list for the third year in a row, which is pretty remarkable given we’re 100% bootstrapped from the get-go.
2016
Content Marketing Conference moved to Boston year 3, featuring 6 workshops, 11 keynotes and 30 sessions from speakers so great—we branded them as superheroes!
2017
Migrating to SaaS required investment in advanced software for research, planning and content distribution to save customers time and money, so we made that happen.
2017
Sporting the INC 5000 list for the fourth year in a row was cool, but plans are even more grand with psychometric matchmaking and the expansion of an influencer marketplace.
2018
For the fifth year in a row, we managed to make the Inc. 5000 list by sporting 59% revenue growth over three years.
