Enabling global storytelling for CNN’s digital venture

Empowering Wall Street Journal’s award-winning branding agency
Wall Street Journal Custom Studios is an in-house branded content agency that produces engaging, informative, interactive content that appeals to a global audience. Before Storyhunter, their producers and directors took nearly a week to find, vet, and hire professional freelancers. Storyhunter enabled them to build a much more efficient workflow. They could post assignments on the platform and then pull in freelancers who met the assignment criteria, from the robust search results.
In 2015, AJ+, Al Jazeera’s new digital venture, had the goal of creating a social video enterprise in a cost-effective way. With an agile approach and Storyhunter fully integrated into their workflow, they were able to produce over 400 videos on the platform with very little overhead. That year, their channel garnered more than 2 billion views on Facebook and they have gone on to receive billions more since then.
