About

Meddle™ is a content marketing tool for subject matter experts

What if you could become an industry influencer by simply offering perspectives on content you read, without quitting your day job?

Or even better, what if your entire workforce became influencers and ambassadors for your company? Imagine the reach and impact you would have; the market share you would win.

With Meddle, you can stop imagining and start doing.

Meddle is designed to help people who aren’t professional marketers easily improve their online visibility by creating or curating content tailored to their audiences. In the process they are showcasing their company as one of experts who are knowledgeable about the market and passionate about solving clients’ challenges.

We like to think of Meddle as the blogging platform for the other 99%, for those who don’t have 3-5 hours to write a blog post, but who do have 5 minutes demonstrate how your company is the the go-to source in your industry.

You may come to think of Meddle as your most critical marketing asset in a world gone social.
