We aim to help the news industry maintain their mission of distributing high-quality content while also reaching their financial goals.

With Ebyline’s software, managing freelancers has never been easier. Ebyline helps publishers find, hire, and manage freelancers in less time. From pitches, story drafts, to payments, Ebyline manages the workflow so publishers don’t have to.

For experienced freelance journalists, Ebyline is a dynamic way to showcase experience, pitch ideas to publishers from around the country, and safely distribute work. Many freelancers are familiar with the struggles of quickly getting paid for their articles, but with Ebyline that’s a thing of the past. No more invoices, no more hassle, just fast payments and easy transactions.” Source: Ebyline

How, though, can media companies afford to pay a premium for branded, promotable talent, talent that may open consumers’ pocketbooks? That’s easy: spend less on other content.
