Uniquely Cranberry

How we do it?

Power of the Content Gist

Pronounced "jist", as in the gist of the story.

Increasingly recognized as one of the most significant breakthroughs in content marketing in recent years, the content gist repackages longer form content into short form content ideal for wider distribution and consumption.

Gist Builder

The Cranberry Gist Builder helps you summarize your content through 4 simple questions. Each question is designed to reach one of the four macro-temperaments; competitive, methodical, humanistic and spontaneous.

Persona-based Content

It is often said that you can't please everyone. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try.

Cranberry is the platform to help you maximize your reach and impact. The content gist is constructed using a specific formula that speaks to all four macro-personas.

Great for SEO

One of the best ways to improve your search engine rankings is to get people to share your content organically. Cranberry is your platform for reaching new people with your content. Its a simple formula.

Larger audience + great content = more shares = Better SEO.

Analytics and Measurement

Cranberry provides near real-time data in your dashboard. You can see content placement numbers and click-through data as it happens. You can also add UTM data to your content URL to make your tracking easier. You also have access to your own analytics to help you track performance.

Cranberry also provides persona metrics to help you gauge the response to individual persona-based traffic.

Editorial Lifeline & Support

Need help? Or just want to chat with someone? We have people for that. Our editorial team doubles as our support staff. You can contact them 24 hours a day.

Need to do something "off book" or more creative? Our professional services team can help you design a campaign tailored to your needs.

About Cranberry

Get to know us

We do small in a big way. We have a rich history of helping small businesses and organizations tell their stories. Let's face it, bigger companies don't really need our help. These companies have their own gravity. But we've been where you are now and know the challenges small businesses encounter in getting attention online. Team Cranberry exists for the sole purpose of helping smaller companies share their stories and engage with a larger audience.

We are guardians of time. We believe that people have plenty of time for things that matter to them. Our job is to help you matter. We do this by creating content experiences that have proper alignment between the content marketing and the content being promoted. Cranberry is a BuzzFeed free zone.

More About Us

David McInnis started Cranberry in 2015. Mr. McInnis is well known for PRWeb, a service he launched in 1997 that would become the largest content marketing platform for press releases visibility. With Cranberry, we are expanding beyond the world of press releases to help companies share their content in all its forms.

While Cranberry is a relatively new company, our team has been in the online marketing trenches since 1995. It's no exaggeration to say that we have seen just about everything in online marketing. We are even guilty of launching a few trends ourselves. We have always been big advocates of content marketing in all of its forms. Everything we have been a part of has brought us to where we are now. We believe that Cranberry represents our best; a culmination of 20 years on online experience in a content marketing platform.

Explore the Benefits of the Content Gist™

The content gist is a short-form version of your content. More than an image and clever headline, we provide the reader with the gist of your content to improve engagement.

The goal of your marketing shouldn't be to trick users into a click. What you really want is engagement.

The content gist provides a window into your content.

More than a clever image and misleading headline, each content gist contains something for competitive, methodical, humanistic and spontaneous persona types.

This is a sample content gist. The ideal placement for this content unit is below a post or article. Notice how the content gist takes on the look and feel of this site? This part of the Cranberry secret, we display your content so that it flows with the publisher content.

From our pricing model to the traffic we deliver, Cranberry seeks to be completely transparent.

We do provide basic traffic data. But we understand that nothing speaks to you better than your own analytics. Need more, we support UTM within your content URLS.

These Are Your Tools

Smarter Voice

The ability to capture a lead from a third-publisher site appeared unattainable to us until we started working with Cranberry's professional services team. We can now capture leads from third-party sites in a way that makes everyone happy.
