A Brief History of Complete Picture Content, LLC
A decade ago, founders Marie Gail Stratford and Conja Summerlin wouldn’t have believed that today they would be successful small business owners. Even in 2011, when the seeds for Complete Picture Content were first planted, their primary goal was to make a livable income. After a series of job losses, Marie Gail chose to actively pursue her dream of becoming a paid writer. Beginning with HubPages and continuing at a few different content mills, she was soon earning a small income.
Conja also produced some work for content mills. Shortly, she and Marie Gail realized that the rapid turnaround required by most subcontractors was unsustainable. The two also identified issues with the proofreading and editing of content produced for these large companies. As time went on, they became aware of a widespread need for better communication between content writers and clients. Over the next few years, the two conceptualized the idea of a web content company that pays fair, sustainable wages and provides a higher quality product for affordable prices.
In 2014, Complete Picture Content was born. Marie Gail began actively soliciting local business, and she and Conja launched CPC with a holiday open house in December. No one came. The next day, however, an email arrived from one of the businesses Marie Gail had invited to the event. Orders began pouring in. On January 15, 2015, the company incorporated as Complete Picture Content, LLC. The two owners have since partnered with other writers from across the country and are poised to help companies of any size from any industry with online content.
