Brian Clark

Founder, Copyblogger & Leading Expert

Brian Clark is a writer, traveler, and serial digital entrepreneur. 

He’s best known as the founder of the pioneering content marketing website Copyblogger, along with its popular StudioPress and Rainmaker business lines. Between 2007 and 2017, Brian’s companies generated over $70 million in sales, all without investment and advertising thanks to a unique content marketing approach.

Following the acquisition of the Copyblogger collection of assets, Brian is focused on Further, a project aimed at helping Generation X navigate the new realities of midlife, retirement, and longevity. His other projects include Longevity Gains, a newsletter that focuses on the lucrative market of consumers over age 50, and Leading Expert, which is a coming soon community for digital marketers in the age of artificial intelligence and disruptive change.

Clark began publishing online in 1998, and by 1999 he had his first entrepreneurial success thanks to an understanding of the emerging commercial internet. He went on to launch two additional successful businesses using purely online marketing and digital infrastructure, attaining even greater success.

In January of 2006, Brian started a one-man website called Copyblogger, which quickly evolved into an influential digital trade magazine for the content marketing industry. Both the Guardian and Advertising Age have recognized Copyblogger as one of the most powerful and influential blogs in the world.

Copyblogger never took venture capital and made it to eight figures in annual revenue with high profit margins without advertising. The company created software-as-a-service, web hosting, WordPress themes and plugins, courses, and conferences — all completely bootstrapped.

This level of success, plus Brian’s early adoption of online content to fuel startup companies, makes him a recognized pioneer of the now $600 billion content marketing industry. You can read more about his history and business philosophy at Forbes.
