From a simple idea to the world’s leading content marketplace
Textbroker’s goal is to meet an increasing demand for unique, tailored content. As an SEO provider, Textbroker founder Jan Becker-Fochler experienced first-hand the increasing value of unique content to his clients. The reason for this was simple: unique content means better ranking in search engines, more traffic and more revenue. In 2005, the increasing importance of unique content gave Becker-Fochler an idea. He commissioned the development of a preliminary version of the Textbroker platform as a vehicle for his idea of searching for authors, motivating them to write, rating the quality of their writing and compensating them for their efforts.
Within a short period of time, thousands of authors eager to try their hand at earning money as writers had signed up. 2007 saw the launch of the Internet’s first content marketplace. Textbroker’s marketplace. Be it a product description, blog post, or technical article, today there are thousands of authors writing and delivering professional-quality SEO and editorial content to clients all over the world.
More success with first-class content
To ensure that clients are always able to find the right author for their project, Textbroker employs a team of experienced editors to rate all submitted content. The team then organizes the authors into different quality levels according to the individual’s writing ability. This ensures that clients always have access to quality-checked content.
The need for customized content has continued to rise all over the world, and as a result, the Textbroker platform has also grown rapidly. In 2008 Textbroker expanded into the USA and opened a branch office in Las Vegas.
