Shafqat Islam, CEO and Co-Founder of NewsCred adds: “Every brand has a story to tell. We firmly believe that the brands that will win in the future are the brands that think of content as a strategic asset across their organisation.
“We’re excited to partner with Storyation, Australia’s leading content marketing agency, and to help brands reach key audiences with compelling, valuable content.”
NewsCred was named a leader in the inaugural Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Marketing Platforms in April 2018 positioned highest for “Ability to Execute” and furtherst to the right for “Completeness of Vision.”

Its clients include Energy Australia, Tourism NewZealand, Blackmores and MetLife.
