Today, we proudly announce the launch of Revel Digital Collective, a digital strategy and content marketing agency focused on making a difference in 2020 and beyond. Our mission is to celebrate and amplify brands that are doing it right. We want to uplift companies that help improve people’s lives through wellness, innovation, technology, social causes, and more.
The Revel Digital Collective founders are former magazine editors and award-winning content directors. We worked together at major publishing companies, then moved on to do content marketing and editorial strategy for brands. After seeing much individual growth and success working independently, we experienced the limitations of being solopreneurs and often leaned on each other for support.
Anyone doing it all on their own can attest that it gets lonely. It’s more fun and meaningful to be “in it together.” Plus, we’ve always loved collaborating and have been aligned in our work ethic and values since day one. Every project and client that we’ve taken on has been purpose-driven to make customers’ lives better. (You can learn more about our past work and find client testimonials here.)
Another reason to partner up: We know that everyone can use extra support, now more than ever.
Speaking of now, why did we start a content marketing agency in 2020?
We committed to building this content marketing agency months ago, and at that time we definitely didn’t expect what the world had in store. (Thanks, 2020.) So when our plans were put to the test by a global pandemic and deep domestic unrest, we channeled one client, whose brilliant career kicked off at a very inconvenient time.
When this prominent female founder and CEO launched her business in 2005, the timing seemed all wrong. She was pregnant with her fourth child, her other kids were under age six, and she already had a successful career in media. Popular belief told her it was not a good idea to embark on a new endeavor at that time. But the truth is, there’s never a perfect time to start a business. In fact, she quickly learned that a significant life change provides an excellent opportunity for adopting new habits since your entire life is already in flux.
There’s no better way to describe this year than “in flux.” We’ve definitely felt it on our ends. Abby welcomed her firstborn this summer, Amanda has been parenting a toddler and a preschooler 24/7 while working, and Cristina is in limbo on a huge cross-country move from New York to San Francisco. But as things slowed down (in the most chaotic way possible), it also provided an opportunity to incubate something new, flesh out our strategic vision, and prioritize doing what we love in the face of unprecedented challenges. (You can learn more about our founders’ back stories and our company mission here.)
So what’s Revel’s approach to content strategy?
Creating effective content is part art and part science. We take all the fun stuff we learned as journalists and digital editors—thorough research, insightful strategy, great storytelling, and creative innovation—and apply it to help businesses attract and build relationships with customers.
Our process begins with a deep-dive analysis of three key factors. You can read more about our content marketing services here, but the basic formula is:
Brand Strengths + Customer Needs and Values + Data Insights = A Winning Content Strategy
Once the strategic foundation is set, the magic is in the execution. We uphold exceptional quality standards and ensure every piece of content is useful and actionable. We implement a distinctive voice and vision that’s uniquely yours. We activate the right people and processes for seamless creation and turnkey implementation, in collaboration with us or fully managed by our team. All while remaining laser-focused on the KPIs that matter most to your business.
What is Revel Digital Collective’s promise to brands?
Content marketing is the most direct way to tell your story, build brand authority, and connect with customers. But that’s just the beginning.

As they say, one’s company, two’s a crowd, and three’s a party.
