WhereBy.Us gives content creators the tools they need to build their own media brand.

Just as Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) became a $35 billion company helping retailers build an online business quickly and easily, WhereBy.Us does the same for content creators. Creators include media companies, social media “influencers,” and independent writers.

This company enables creators to publish e-newsletters, build a website, grow their audience, and generate revenue through subscriptions and advertising. Advertising is a $238 billion market in the U.S., and $172 billion of that represents digital advertising.

WhereBy.Us currently generates $1.8 million in annual recurring revenue. It’s raised $2.3 million from notable investors including Jason Calacanis (an angel investor who invested in Uber in early 2007), and McClatchy (a prominent publishing company).
