About Us

The Black Opal story

At Black Opal, we all come to work every day because we love being a part of our customers journey to create and share their blog stories.  Our customers are all exceptionally busy, fast growth companies that need to create content – we all know we need content – but their time is invested elsewhere in their businesses. That’s where we come in. We step up and deliver solid, long lasting content written for you. Our customers love us because we give you back the most important element in your business — time!

Matt Holden

Founder, CEO

Serial entrepreneur Matt Holden, founded his third startup – Black Opal – because he couldn’t find content that was fresh, reproducible and on-target for both blogging and chatbot communications.
