Updated: Jan 19, 2023

Since its inception, the Meta Branded Content Project participants have generated $80 million in new revenue through its sales products, trainings and services. We're so proud of the impact we've had on the local news industry and will continue to offer sales programs and support in 2023 and beyond!

"With over $500,000 in revenue, the Meta Branded Content Project has not only been a lifeline for our business, but it has also become a revenue stream that we fully expect to be an integral part of our business model moving forward," said Chris Bennett, publisher of the Seattle Medium.

Bennett has had incredible success selling our turnkey lifestyle content series and participating with the Meta Branded Content Project through cohort groups and sales bootcamps.
