Market Brew was a big idea formed back in 2007 by the founders out of necessity. After several years of R&D, an invite-only ALPHA release, and a public BETA with over 60,000 users — we had found a working model. Today, we are proud to share our predictive analytics platform with brands and marketing experts who are seeking transparency and actionable data to increase organic search traffic and revenue. Our team is comprised of thought leaders in digital marketing, artificial intelligence and computer science.
