Our Story

Posted Sun Aug 13 2023 • 1 min read

Hey there! Welcome to TrustUGC's first-ever blog post. My name is Justin, and I'm one of the Co-Founders of TrustUGC. In this post, I'll talk about who we are, how we got into the UGC community, and catch you up to where we are now.

💬 Who we are

Both my Co-Founder (Ben) and I are computer science graduates who have always had a passion for building businesses. Starting with minor projects we learned about how we can solve people's problems using technology. In 2020, when the pandemic hit we started our first real business. We built a marketplace to connect TikTok creators to musicians wanting to promote their music.

💡 How we found out about UGC

While running our marketplace, we started purchasing UGC from creators we found. We discovered this niche community that was growing on Twitter (X), and loved how welcoming everyone was. In order to find the right creator for us, we looked through hundreds of portfolios. In doing this, we found that most creators lack a vital component in their portfolio - social proof.

🚀 Our mission

Ben and I have a mission to help UGC creators build and leverage social proof. We believe there's a lot of money being left on the table when UGC creators either omit social proof entirely, or do not fully utilize it's power.

👋 Meet TrustUGC

To achieve our mission, we created TrustUGC. A tool to help UGC creators collect, manage, and share reviews from past clients. Since starting in March of 2023, we have improved our tool tremendously, and will continue to do so with the help of our awesome users. We're really dedicated towards working closely with UGC creators to build the most useful tool possible. Ben and I are both super excited to continue working on TrustUGC we continue to help new creators leverage social proof every day.

Thank you for reading! Feel free to reach out to say hi or follow us on our Twitter or TikTok.
