The Mission: simple collaborative writing for the web

After years of experience (and frustration) working in content-driven industries, we set out to make it easier for teams to create quality web content.

Organizations need content constantly to build their brands and drive their businesses. But the shortcomings of current writing and collaboration tools only add to the chaos of getting work done. Desktop publishing applications are incompatible with the Web. Cloud editors are too sparse to serve the needs of modern content marketing. Marketing automation systems leave out the steps needed to create valuable, audience-driven content.

Seeing that our peers shared our frustration, Beegit was born. We are the first professional, online Markdown editor that centralizes team, calendar, communication and workflow — all in one place — in a flexible system so people can focus on what needs to get done. Beyond the ease of our platform, we simplify the process of creating and executing a content strategy with services ranging from audits to full content development resources.

Our mission is to provide organizations with the platform, services and resources to create web content that keeps everyone on the same page.
