Backed by Experience
ExpertHub was created by the team who built SCN (now ThinkSales), a sales and marketing content production house who has worked with some of South Africa’s top corporate brands, and who also published the award-winning Entrepreneur magazine and developed and grew the successful digital platform www.entrepreneurmag.co.za.
Entrepreneur, which was in print from April 2006 to January 2019, is a multi-award-winning business publication that was published under license from Entrepreneur US, America’s top-selling business magazine.
www.entrepreneurmag.co.za averaged over 10 million pageviews per annum and became the top go-to website for business insights and advice in South Africa before merging with its US counterpart, entrepreneur.com/za.
Over the past 13 years, the SCN team has honed its content production skills within the business landscape and has developed the ability and acumen to produce content that delivers on key business objectives.
These insights into the content that business audiences need access to in order to drive business and personal growth have now been distilled and mapped into Expert Hub’s site.
Award-Winning Writers & Content Developers
With more than 12 award-winning years under its belt, ExpertHub’s team of highly experienced writers understand the information that business readers are looking for, what’s unique and impactful, and how to distil key ideas into actionable insights.
ExpertHub is the latest addition to an affiliate team of companies which includes Entrepreneur Media South Africa, SCN and ThinkSales Corporation. All four brands have shared a Content Development Team, which collectively has produced over 200 client videos, interviewed hundreds of experts and business owners, and written thousands of articles, across numerous industries and sectors. Based on this experience, Expert Hub has its finger on the pulse of where business is, and where it’s going.
The team has also won numerous international awards for profile articles, publishing excellence and design work.
