We are a team of marketing experts headquartered in the UK & the operating globally.
Our holding company “4040 Media” was started by Matt Byrom in 2009. For the first 2 years Matt freelanced for clients creating websites and designing content for their marketing campaigns.
In 2011 Matt created the brand Wyzowl after spotting an emerging trend for explainer videos. Matt noticed that companies like Dropbox were using explainer videos to show people how their product worked in a highly engaging 1 minute video. The Dropbox website only had the video and a sign up form. This was an amazing new way to communicate & convert. Matt did some research into the market and found that there were few companies creating these videos and the price was on request. It seemed like explainer videos were only available to companies with big budgets. Matt saw an opportunity to productise this market and make explainer videos available to small/medium businesses. Matt learned enough animation to validate this idea and gain some initial customers. In March 2012 the business recruited it’s first full time employee Janice Byrom and in in May 2012 Chris Mather and Tom Wiggins started in the animation team.
Through our Wyzowl brand we pioneered selling 100% custom made explainer videos with fixed pricing, fixed turnaround times & unlimited revisions. Our business started growing and by 2013 Wyzowl was a team of 15+ people and we had created over 1,000 videos for our clients.
We had grown the business by creating exceptional videos and providing a high level of service to our clients. We had promoted the business by creating marketing content such as sharable videos, infographics, ebooks and other marketing content. Seeing this as an opportunity we launched "Wyzowl Content" to our clients in 2014. This became very successful. However it also introduced a layer of confusion, were we a video agency that also created content or were we a content agency that specialised in video?
In 2014 we decided to create a separate brand for our content marketing services. This brand is called publi.sh. Our aim was not only to create exceptional marketing content for our clients but also to help them learn about marketing. We have been on a big journey into marketing and we have generated a huge amount of expertise along the way. We feel now is the time to help others learn and accelerate our own learning with a wider community.
To date we have created over 2,000 pieces of content for clients in 40+ countries around the world. Wyzowl is one of the worldwide leaders in the explainer video market and publi.sh is an emerging source for exceptional marketing content and a destination for people to learn about marketing.
