Complex Networks has been named by the popular magazine Business Insider as one of the Most Valuable Startups in New York.
The founder of Complex is Marc Ecko. The complex started as a lifestyle publication in 2002, focusing on hip-hop, sneakers, and comics. It was one of the first companies to build its business around the idea that subcultures would move from the periphery into the mainstream. It grow into something big 19 years later. Everyone knows Complex. It’s a big success. We even have a Dutch Complex now which is gaining more traffic every month.
In 2017, Complex stopped with the “paper” magazine. They continued online. Online is the future anyway. So start online today! Read our other articles about blogging and entrepreneurship and follow me on my blogging journey.
The website has 7 million unique visitors every month( checked on similarweb.com). Some month even more then that. They also have a lot of followers on the gram and we check them daily.
How does Complex actually make money?
Most publishers use advertising, in this case premium advertising and they work with sponsored content.
Complex has advertising on the website (we don’t know which ad network they use). Probably Mediavine or Adthrive cause this is the best-paying ad network out there. They also make a lot of money with e-commerce. Have a look at their shop. They sell really dope stuff. They also make money with sponsored content on their social media channels and on the website, cause you often see #ad on their social media channels. We don’t know if they use affiliate marketing.
In 2016, Verizon Hearst Media Partners – a joint venture of Verizon Communications and Hearst Communications – acquired Complex intending to build a portfolio of the emerging digital brands for the millennials and zoomers. in 2021 the popular company BuzzFeed announced that it has agreed to acquire Complex Networks for 300 million. Buzzfeed has 100 million visitors a month, like can you imagine? Buzzfeed is worth 1.5 bullion in 2022.
News, features, controversies, and original TV shows – Complex Networks has it all. It’s a “go-to” destination for all those who have a big passion for art, fashion, music, design, and sportswear.
Some other magazines like Complex are The Source, VICE, The Fader, XXL etc. But we think Complex is the best and just has no competition. So keep going you guys. You are awesome!
