About us

The 100 Companies is a smart content marketing network created by journalists to meet the communication needs of businesses and readers in today’s fast-paced digital world.

Publishing intriguing stories 100 words at a time has been our hallmark since 2013. We started with The Atlanta 100 and today we are in 250+ American cities and states. Beyond being a reader, you can also promote your business, recruit employees, sell your house or post a listing of your upcoming community event throughout our network. 

If you’d like to make a move in your market, you can even be publisher of your own local newsletter and website. We do all the work – even the actual writing if that’s not your thing. 

For 300 years, editors and advertisers controlled the media, but not anymore. Now there’s a local alternative that’s part of a vast national network reaching millions of American readers every week. 

As newspapers and traditional media began to crumble, veteran award-winning journalist, advertising designer and PR firm founder Chris Schroder designed an innovative solution. He and his team launched The Atlanta 100, an innovative digital publishing platform harnessing the power of a concise eNewsletter, a Google-News-certified website and allied social media channels featuring 100-word articles, videos and podcasts on topics of intrigue. It was an instant hit, winning journalism and marketing industry awards and the hearts of appreciative readers. Today, in concert with folks like you, bringing their own voices and creativity to the network, The 100 Companies has evolved into America’s Newsletter.

Join in the movement today and make journalism fun again.
