Our Story

In 2021, Influence & Co. celebrated 10 years of helping companies reach their business goals through strategic, high-quality content.

Over the years, we've grown from a group of three working in a single room to a team of more than 50 marketing professionals, and Influence & Co. became a women-led business when Kelsey (Meyer) Raymond and a partner bought out her co-founder's interest in the business in 2018.

The company started in 2011 with a conversation between Kelsey and Brent Beshore. Brent, the founder of Permanent Equity, found that the companies he invested in were having trouble securing publicity. So he asked the question: "Is there a better way to gain exposure?" The answer: Influence & Co.

At the time, Kelsey and co-founder John Hall (now CEO of Calendar.com) had never heard of content marketing — they just knew that companies were craving a different kind of PR and marketing. So Permanent Equity funded the new business as one of its portfolio companies.

Traditional PR firms only provided industry experts with a periodic quote or a press release that few people actually read. So we developed a solution utilizing our thorough knowledge of the online publishing world. We’ve since grown into one of the leading providers of high-quality expert content to the world’s best publications.

Our evolution continued as we saw an opportunity to connect the dots in our clients' content strategies to deliver tangible results rather than simply create content in silos. We're now equipped to deliver measurable results for clients who are prioritizing lead generation, SEO, sales enablement, and thought leadership.

Our Core Values

At Influence & Co., our core values form the foundation on which we do our work and conduct ourselves every single day.

Create an Autonomous yet Supportive Environment

We believe every team member brings unique strengths, experiences, and approaches to their work. To ensure you can really shine, you’re encouraged to complete your tasks and engage with your work in the way that works best for you.

Evolve to Deliver More Value

We value being agile. As the needs of our clients and organization change, we are learning, growing, and making changes to better serve our clients and improve the employee experience. 

Treat Others With Respect

We are constantly working to make Influence & Co. a safe(r) and more inclusive environment for all team members. This requires a basic level of respect for one another. At Influence & Co., this looks like seeking to understand, using inclusive language, acting considerately toward teammates when challenges or disagreements arise, providing helpful and valuable feedback to teammates, and more. Harassment and other exclusionary behaviors are absolutely not acceptable. 

Build a trusting community where everyone belongs.

Our individual and collective actions contribute to or detract from our ability to foster a trusting community where everyone belongs. We know small learning moments can have a long-term impact and believe holding one another accountable for our actions and behaviors is an integral part of building a safer, more inclusive workplace.

Influence & Co. is easy to work with, they get up to speed quickly, they are great communicators, and they really care about helping you hit your metrics and goals.

I absolutely adore Influence & Co.! If everyone were as good at their jobs as Influence & Co., not only would they LOVE Sunday nights, but the world would also work so much better!

Tracey Wik

VP of Business Strategy at Harrison Assessments

We’ve been nothing but impressed with our experience thus far with Influence & Co. Their approach and especially our account team have been remarkable. They have made us think differently and more holistically about our digital and content strategies. In a short time, they’ve become the standard to which we compare and evaluate other future partners.
