About UpContent

We are a team of proud Pittsburghers who are committed to those that believe that great relationships are built on trust–and that trust is formed by providing valuable content

Why does UpContent exist?

We seek to become your platform of choice when it comes to the discovery, curation, and distribution of compelling articles. With the volume of content available reaching deafening levels, UpContent exists to help organizations cut through this noise and serve those who look to them for insight - building trust and easing the burden of credible engagement.

How Will UpContent achieve this vision?

We listen. Each new feature introduced by the UpContent team has deep roots in our conversations with our customers. You may notice upon signing up with us that we are heavy on customer support and conversation. It is only through understanding from you how the articles we surface are used - and where friction still exists - that we can continue to become a better solution. We look forward to hearing what our next offering should be.

Where'd UpContent come from?

In 2015, UpContent was born within a marketing services company responsible for executing content marketing strategies. It was in this execution that the team realized just how inefficient and infuriating finding and using great articles was. After our search for a tool to make our lives simpler came up empty, we decided to create one.  In 2017, we took the plunge and separated from the services company to wholly dedicate ourselves to the UpContent platform.

What's next for UpContent?

At UpContent, we seek to become your platform of choice for content discovery, curation, and distribution by continuing to bring you the best in:

  • Surfacing the articles that will bring you greatest benefit;
  • Making curation friction-free by bringing together articles discovered through a variety of manual and automated sources (including our own discovery engine);
  • Providing the opportunity for seamless collaboration to allow your clients and/or teammates to share their insights on articles that will best achieve your brand’s goals; and
  • Easing the burden of engagement by partnering with the best-in-class distribution technologies wherever curated content can drive results.
