Contend or Contend Social will partner with Scrunch of Australia in the coming months bringing their total influencer database up to 850 million worldwide influencer correspondents. Contend, Tech Alliance’s youngest company ran by the high school team lead by Sean Cornelius and Daniel Wiseman has grown significantly over the last two months. In addition to their growing influencer database, they also allow clients to access over 10 million curated articles from the worlds top publishers like Forbes, the Huffington Post and TechCrunch, among others allowing clients to use pre-created content within their own content strategies.
“This partnership with Scrunch to increase our network offerings for our clients is very exciting. We are very happy to work with them on this project and be able to bring in 350 million new influencers into our current database of influencers.”, said Sean Cornelius, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder at Contend. The company launched officially in late November of last year and has since grown significantly over the last few months. In addition, Contend just started releasing their content marketing platform for self-client use as opposed to their complete production services. “We think that the future of our company is in fact in software. To create the best solution to the gap in content marketing platforms for SMEs we need to invest heavily into our platform and databases. It’s an exciting time at Contend.”, said Daniel Wiseman, Chief Operations Officer and Co-Founder.
Fundamentally, the new addition to Contend’s platform from Scrunch will be able to make local brands go global faster than through the uses of standard marketing initiatives. With the addition of 350 million new influencers across multiple channels (Instagram, Facebook, Native Blogs, YouTube, etc.) Contend will now give what so many Fortune 500 companies enjoy to everyday businesses.
