A little history

Future Content started life in 2012 as something completely different; a lean startup called AbleGrad. Our founder, Tom, initially saw the opportunity to connect small businesses in need of creative expertise with experience-hungry graduates to provide everything from small pieces of design (logos etc) to blog posts and more. The initial idea was to help build the grads’ portfolios and provide much needed help to small businesses who simply didn’t have the know-how in-house.

As with all lean startups, the business model was fluid and ever-evolving. What started as a one-stop-shop for creative help, slowly began to focus on content; the wide availability of skilled writers, and the emerging business need for great writing was the perfect marriage. Besides, covering the whole gamut of design was too much to take on for a startup business. In the two years since it started, content has become the best way for connecting customers with clients. Essentially, he chose the right path.

After 12 months of managing both new business and the writers, Tom knew he needed help. There was only so much he could do alone. So he reached out to Stuart, a writer and journalist by trade, to manage the editorial side of the business. This allowed him to focus solely on developing relationships and seeking out new business in the knowledge that the writers were in capable hands.

So why the rebrand? Well, it turned out the ‘grad’ part of AbleGrad was a misnomer; most of the writers we were getting on board were already experienced, mid-to-late 20s, and looking for a foot on the ladder for a career change. Also, the word grad is a loaded term. People hear grad, and automatically think amateur and inexperienced which simply wasn’t the case. And finally, there were no shortage of people who thought the company was a disability charity. Essentially, there was a branding issue.

So here we are, Future Content. While AbleGrad worked to give our writers experience, it did exactly the same for us. It allowed us to define our key products, focussed our market niche and allowed us to align our mission; to build tomorrow’s brands and writers. The ethos isn’t far removed from where we started.
