We’re proud to welcome you to the beta launch of Content Blvd’s new platform! We’ve completely rebuilt the site from the ground up on our way to becoming the most powerful content distribution platform in the world, and we think you’re going to love it.
New features are rolling out fast, and will continue to do so in the weeks and months to come. So, if you’re visiting us for the first time, or you were already a user on our previous platform, now’s a great time to log in and take it for a spin.
Some of the improvements you’ll see:
Easy guest post submission for brands
And easy marketplace browsing for publishers
Better content with improved editorial oversight
More insight into the brands who commission the content
A smart, adjustable email notification system
Improved text formatting and images
Free traffic to your blog with articles promoted through Outbrain
Upcoming features to look for include:
Sponsored post opportunities

Integrated content production to have articles written for you
And we’re just getting started! There’s a lot more to come.
This might be a little wonky for most of you, but to those interested, we’ve completely overhauled our development philosophy from a very complex enterprise-style approach to a much leaner rapid development process. Tony Spore, our new Head Developer is, quite frankly, the fastest coder we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, and our approach lets his speed translate directly into quick updates and improvements for you.
Of course great coding has to be supported by a great user interface. Carter DeAngelis is the wizard of User Experience around here. Over the weeks and months to come, his work will become evident as we roll out visual styling and feature improvements to ensure your Content Blvd experience is one you just can’t live without.
Carter and Tony’s technological prowess is the vehicle for us to deliver the insights we’ve gained from years of working directly with some fantastic brands and publishers. If you’ve worked with us for a while, chances are good you’ve talked or emailed with Dan, Michelle or Erika, who are always intent on providing exactly the value our users need most.
So if you ever have a question, comment or concern, please share it with us. Our users are our most valuable asset.
Our vision for Content Blvd is to help the best content win. It’s what readers have come to expect, after all. We intend to do that by making it quick and easy for brands and publishers to scale up their content publishing efforts, while keeping a sharp eye on quality and relevance.
Since launching Content Blvd with a few select clients nearly two years ago, we’ve helped brands and publishers work together to publish thousands of guest posts. In fact, our first client is still with us. But helping improve the guest blogging process is only part of the plan.
The fact is, brands and publishers both have a wide array of content needs. Earned media (such as guest posts) are just one part of the equation. Paid media (such as sponsored posts) can have a significant impact on brand reach into new areas of a brand’s target audience. And owned media of course (content published on your own sites), underpins all your marketing efforts by delivering great ideas straight to your own readers, and providing deeper resources that help readers, prospects and even search engines decide that your website is a worthwhile place to visit and recommend.
Our vision is to help brands and publishers fulfill all of their content needs.
So come on in and have a look. It only takes a minute to get started. See you on the inside!
