Great content distribution tool

It's a great system - works really well and the results are great on each unique platform - bonus that it works well on Shopify sites too

Pros

It is a comprehensive yet easy to use content management software system

Cons

Really not much - works very well but does take some set up

Reasons for choosing StoryChief

More reliable and easier to use and set up

Reasons for switching to StoryChief

the recipes were too unreliable and kept breaking down

StoryChief Saved My Soul

I wanted a reliable platform to host a growing bunch of content. It looks smart, I can't mess it up, they keep improving, they're responsive. Very pleased and hope it continues.

Pros

I came to StoryChief from Wordpress. Wordpress itself isn't too much of a drag but it's all the hoo has around it that causes such time wasting admin. I love that with StoryChief I can just get on with writing the content. It's easy to add media without going round the houses. The SEO section is invaluable and SC guides you through it. The publishing option is a godsend. Off it goes to all the different SoMe areas you would want it to. The SoMe publishing is getting better all the time too with improvements all the time e.g. scheduled campaign to boost your posts.

Cons

Would like a little more flexibility for the front page of the blog e.g. have just requested the ability for a post to be pinned. But to be honest I'm not sure I ever knew how to do that myself in Wordpress. Oh, and I would like it to have a better menu bar option for linking to my main site. It would be cool if there were a few more areas of flexibility like this.

Reasons for choosing StoryChief

Got hacked, got confused, got fed up with Wordpress. StoryChief looked promising and it proves to have been the case. Very happy.

Reasons for switching to StoryChief

Too many variables within Wordpress. Storychief seemed like a one stop shop with the answers I was looking for.

Response from StoryChief NV

Hi Iain, Thanks for all your great feedback! One of our goals is to offer a distraction-free editor that facilitates creativity and efficiency. We are very happy to see we contributed to that! We often improve our features and add new ones based on what our customers need, so you can expect some flexibility from us in the future :) Happy writing!

Very happy with StoryChief

Pros

I love that all our content and social media (distribution) channels are housed in one central place. The calendar functionality allows us to create briefs according to a timeline, invite writers to collaborate and get published on time. It's an easy to use platform and the pop-up tips and help functionality is super helpful as we're learning the ropes. The HubSpot integration works seamlessly. The distribution channels become a part of your publishing process, this feature promotes deeper thinking around how/when you'd like to distribute X piece of content. I love this. The writing space is super easy to use and moved our team away from managing multiple GDocs at any given time. StoryChief has everything in one place with easy to track comments and approval processes/.

Cons

We'd love to be able to post Instagram carousels natively, although they do offer an extension to get around this, but we are hoping this is a feature that could out roll in the future to make it even more seamless.

Dated, clunky, and annoying

Pros

As someone who was invited to collaborate on a document hosted on StoryChief, I can firmly say I disliked the whole experience.

Cons

Not sure if this is exclusive to users invited to collaborate on Storychief without an account, but I received emails for every single change, comment, reply, and resolved comment (easily 25+ emails each sitting) for one document. I found the overall layout dated, and for a platform that boasts so many features, it was very simple and underwhelming. The UX/UI was awful (I had to sign in so many times!) and made me want to scream at my computer. Plus, the commenting system (which was the only way I could communicate/collaborate) was very clunky and had issues every time I tried to add/edit comments.

Response from StoryChief NV

Hi there! Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate your comments as they help us improve our tool. We will work on being able to disable notifications and will also try to update the layout to improve the user experience. About having to log in all the time: could you tell me what browser you were using and if it was on a desktop or mobile device? There shouldn't be any reason why you would need to log in frequently or have a clunky experience, so we'd love to investigate this further. You can give us more information on support@storychief.io. Thank you!
