Everyone has a story to tell.
NewsBox is a publishing, subscription and monitoring platform owned by Connectus. NewsBox includes content from a growing number of contributors and established publishers, and provides organizations with search, monitoring, distribution, dissemination, and other content management tools. NewsBox includes access to more than 53,000 sources such as newspapers, journalists, magazines, from nearly every country.
Our mission is to help individuals, companies and organizations make smarter, more informed decisions by organizing content, coverage and commentary from a growing number of reputable sources.
The company was founded to provide innovative and differentiated communications products and services to the PR and IR markets. Gary Pick, a career-communications exec, worked with several large media companies in various technical, marketing and management roles before leaving in 2001 to form Connectus.
In 2006, Connectus formed a partnership with PR Newswire and Businesswire to distribute press releases. The company began publishing approximately 30,000 press releases per month. In the same year, Connectus began development of PRSafe, a PR management tool for organizations of all sizes to host, distribute and manage basic functions of PR in a single web based platform.
In early 2008 the first version of PRSafe launched. Over the next few years, continued development and experimentation in several ways including simple news integration and widgets for website owners, integration of direct publisher subscription options and storytelling tools.
Instead of submitting a press release and hoping to get coverage on publisher sites, NewsBox users can build a distribution network, publish news alongside other publishers and get immediate visibility.
The site integration tools include NewsBox widgets users can add to a website or blog and then any news release or article submitted to their NewsBox account will display on their website or blog and get the added benefit of visibility to NewsBox readers.
In 2014, Connectus began integration of over 53,000 publications in English, French, Spanish, German and more.
In 2015, NewsBox is set to launch a new mobile application, has a new business location, an expanding workforce focused on making NewsBox better and is launching new partnerships to continue development and growth of its content publishing, subscription and monitoring(reputation management) business.
Connectus' goal is to create a truly innovative, advanced, simple and category defining product to subsequently change the way content is shared and distributed online.
