CEO of Venture 4th Media, Head Cheese, Niche Selection Master
Ewen bootstrapped a growing digital portfolio with 140+ content affiliate sites that started with a $1000 investment creating over 3 million in asset value. Today, Ewen continues to incubate content portfolios at scale, leveraging deep niche subject matter expertise (specialist writers) with a team of digital ninjas (editors, VAs) that continues to scale ahead of ecommerce and digital enthusiast trends. Content Bootcamp is an extension of the on-the-ground training that he developed over the years, as an operator, a writer, an editor, a web developer learning the digital ropes himself, then finding others to join him to scale the content production. After hours Ewen enjoys the sublime chaos of 3 kids under 5.

Managing Editor for All
Alizabeth Swain has worked as a professional writer for more than a decade. And with the millions of words she’s written throughout the years, she’s learned a thing (or two) about what it takes to make it as a professional writer.
Through all of the different positions she’s worked in, she understands all of the different struggles and stressors that freelance writers will face in their careers. She believes that a writer should always continue to refine their skills to improve upon their craft. No matter if you’re professionally trained or you just enjoy writing as a hobby, she’s here to help you find confidence in your abilities.
As she works as a Managing Editor with V4M, she loves working with an open door policy to help writers with all different types of niche expertise flourish in their careers.
Topline Editor / V4M Writer Supreme
Miah began freelance writing as a way to bring flexibility to her career. She quickly fell in love with the ability to share her thoughts and opinions with people on the things she loves most, along with the process of building, researching, and writing an article.
The work she does now allows her to research and learn new things about the subjects she already loves.
Miah began writing for Venture 4th Media as a video game expert and enthusiast. She’s written about Runescape, Minecraft, and her favorite franchise, The Sims, along with many other subjects! In addition to video games, Miah is an Orchestra and Band expert, specializing in the Violin and Clarinet. This is her favorite niche, as music is a deep passion.
Currently, she is working with Venture 4th Media as a Topline Editor. She loves this position because she gets to help writers achieve their dreams and find their voice. She wants to help writers improve and succeed like she did when she first joined V4M.
Our editorial team at V4M is structured into Topline Editors (the gatekeepers of best-in-class content), the Formatting Editors (the polishers of that content), and Managing Editors (the creative brand builders).
The editorial team is designed to give the creatives and subject matter experts all the tools, know-how, help, and guidance they need to bring their specialties to the masses.
Here at Content Bootcamp HQ, we’ve brought together our best and brightest editors to share their insider knowledge to help others.
“I love V4M so much. It’s great being able to choose a topic that I know lots about, and then impart my knowledge following loose guidelines and being able to choose my own direction for each article. I’d think I’d really struggle to work within the confines of someone else.”
Our writers are the creative heartbeat of the entire Venture 4th Media operation. We created this training for them.
Our writers are not just wordsmiths. They are so much more than that. We believe the best writers are subject matter experts.
Sometimes we call them passionate nerds.
Sometimes they are thought leaders.
They are the same people we create content for.
They are the users of the products we review and recommend.
They are running their own businesses, or e-comm shops, working their day jobs as cosmetologists, or dentists, and come here to share their knowledge with others.
They spend 29 hours building a LEGO set, then tell our readers all about it.
They Tik Tok their new subscription boxes, just for fun, then share their unboxings with our readers.
They skateboard the same trick 100 times then tell us how it was done (and film it).
They ramble on endlessly on their fave topics and we are here to harness and polish that expertise to share with our audiences.
The training here at Content Bootcamp is designed for these passionate, creatives that want to share their insights with the world.

Even out of my very short time of working here so far, I have seen one of the greatest community/work spirits I have seen in a company before over the past number of years working as a journalist…Further, one particular element echoed throughout the company is this ever-present aspect of kindness and passion for writing which is wonderful to see! It’s been a pleasure working for V4M and I hope to work with the company for many more years! You all are brilliant!”
