In the summer of 2010, five people who had never been in the same room together met in Denver. Within two hours, there was a shared vision and a company to execute on it.
The vision was the Rainmaker Platform. And the company is called Rainmaker Digital.
The common element of this group of former strangers was Brian Clark, now Rainmaker Digital’s CEO. He founded the pioneering content marketing site Copyblogger in 2006, and over the next four years launched several seven-figure startups thanks to the audience he had built.
Clark brought his individual business partners together in that Denver conference room because he wanted to build something bigger than the WordPress and content marketing software that his companies had introduced so far.
The goal was to develop a complete digital marketing and sales solution that met his own sophisticated needs as a non-technical content creator and entrepreneur.
Such a platform would naturally be the perfect solution for thousands of online marketers and publishers who want to focus on their business, not their technology.
And that’s exactly what the Rainmaker Platform has become since its launch in 2014.
Taking an unusual path for a software company, Rainmaker Digital didn’t look for venture capital to fund the development of its new platform. Instead, the company grew to $12 million in annual revenue and more than 200,000 unique customers — without advertising — thanks to the power of content marketing that builds and serves an audience.
Since 2010, we’ve also grown from a small team to 65 smart, passionate people across the globe. The company is based in Boulder, Colorado, but everyone at Rainmaker Digital is free to live and work wherever they want.
Our independence from investors allows us to make smart decisions, build for the long term, and do the right thing for our customers. We’re as ambitious as anyone when it comes to constantly improving the Platform, but we aren’t called to sacrifice quality or care for the sake of rapid scale.
We truly believe that the Rainmaker Platform should be a powerful partner that improves your business and life, not a complicated and confusing liability that drags you down. We wake up each day with that simple goal in mind.
Thank you for checking out Rainmaker. We hope you’ll take us up on the 14-day free trial and see for yourself how the Platform can empower you to do and earn more — with less hassle, worry, and confusion.
