Merit transforms the success of each person in your organization into powerful, positive stories of your brand, and connects those stories to targeted stakeholders.



Personalized stories about milestones and accomplishments are easily created for tens, hundreds, or thousands of individuals at once, creating endless proof points of the positive impact of your organization.



Merit distributes each person’s story directly to influential audiences via built-in and constantly updated contact databases of relevant stakeholders in media, government, education, communities, and more.



Merit’s reputation marketing platform puts your organization on offense, creating scalable, measurable, best-in-class results when it comes to engaging audiences with targeted stories about your people and brand.

Personalized content is more meaningful

Merit makes it easy to turn awards, achievements, or participation into personalized stories for everyone involved — whether it’s one person or 1,000.

Each person’s story has their own unique details in it and is automatically published to their own personalized Merit page, which showcases their achievements from all organizations in Merit’s network.

Activate thousands of audiences at once

Hometown Newspapers

Merit automatically transforms personalized stories into hometown news releases and sends them to the appropriate media outlet for each person via its built-in media contact database.

High Schools

Reach high schools and colleges with updates on what their alumni are accomplishing — Merit stories can be automatically sent to each person’s former learning institution so that everyone’s aware of how you’re fostering success.

Elected Officials

Stories are sent to each person’s elected state representatives via Merit’s weekly “constituent relations” email digest, so government officials can see first hand the success of people from your organization that they represent.

Social Media

Personalized stories are easily shared to social networks like Facebook and Twitter, putting your organization’s brand in front of thousands of trusted friends and family members.

Relevance equals results

Merit’s email engagement rates are 400% higher than education industry averages, with email open and click rates averaging higher than 60%. Because stories are personalized, Facebook engagement is 10 times benchmark rates for shared content.

By using Merit, in just one year we reached more than 1,800 newspapers. We couldn’t have imagined doing that before. Just 34 Merit stories generated 6,500+ press releases and let us publicly recognize tens of thousands of students.


When a Merit email pops up in the inbox, it is immediately copied and pasted into next week’s ‘College News’ column of our paper.
