Creating and running your own website is no easy task, even with all of the tools we have nowadays. The problem is that there are so many different aspects that you have to manage that it can be overwhelming, especially for novices or people with overly busy schedules. You have to first know how to build a site, then create your own original content, build a fan base, manage your social media channels, and much more. With so many things to check off the to do list, it’s no surprise that somebody finally took it upon themselves to create a platform that makes publishing “easier and smarter.”
San Francisco based startup BlazeStage is the brand new platform that aims to fix that problem. The site’s number one goal—simplify publishing and organize all of the necessary tasks of running a site into one streamlined solution. BlazeStage allows users to “design their stage,” which is their terminology for building your site, and start publishing almost instantly. The site’s content also integrates with other social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Soundcloud, Google+, Instagram, and LinkedIn, making it easy for users to tie their publishing experience together in one place.
Chuck Baker, the Founder of BlazeStage, designed the platform with the hopes that it would “empower users to grow their personal brand, and update their website easy as a tweet.” With BlazeStage’s content integrated and pushed to user’s various social channels, the platform seems to have accomplished their goal of curating and sharing content quickly and efficiently.
To date, BlazeStage has raised $1.6 million, with investors including Malcolm Lee, Alonzo Mourning, Erik Moore, and Rhahime Bell, along with a star-studded cast of users that range from musical celebrities including Machine Gun Kelly and international luxury car brand Lexus.
While BlazeStage is still in its early days—the launch was just announced last week—it appears to be an exciting and innovative tool for publishers who are looking to streamline their content creation, curation, and sharing experience. For publishers on a tight schedule, or for those who need help simplifying the publishing process, BlazeStage could be a great solution to connecting with your followers or other likeminded people. With the motto “Every rockstar needs a stage,” it’s obvious who BlazeStage’s target demographic is, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t serve as a valuable publishing tool for every publisher out there.
