Contently

It's helpful for top of marketing funnel writing that we can sometimes lose sight of because we are so ingrained in the product day to day. Contently is also helpful for long written pieces and ebooks that will take a significant amount of employee time to put together.I avoid using Contently for mid to bottom funnel marketing writing because my team will often have greater insight into the product function or use-case or product release, making them more adroit to the tone of the written piece and able to produce the content quickly.

Oracle Content Marketing (Compendium), legacy

Oracle is great for a very basic blog. The look of ours was designed and built on the back end/code side, so I'm not sure if there are a lot of clean, modern templates like you see in a lot of blogs today to choose from or not. It has been great having a number of authors who can write content directly in the platform and then submit it to our content managers for scheduling and publishing. I think the biggest issue people may have with it is the look of the interface. It needs an update.

Pros

  • Contently is unique from other content marketing organizational tools in one key way. It hands you a network of freelance professionals eager for delegated work.

  • Permission levels are also nice so a random user cannot just post without a certain level of access.
  • I also like being able to update the code if necessary.
  • It's easy for users to access and write, and there's a nice workflow to review any content before it gets published.

Cons

Contently

  • I have been using it for 3.5 years, and have had no response from potential clients.
  • The portfolio section is pretty easy to use, but I don't love the format.
  • Since I'm not a client, I don't know just how easy it is for them to find new freelancers or how often it is actually used.
  • Probably more suited for some types/concentrations of freelance writers, like finance, tech, or healthcare.

  • Templates are a good thing, but hard to set up and require a lot of work. (Other Oracle tools are more user-friendly when it comes to template design.)
  • While they did a good job updating the interface, I still believe more work can be done to make it more user-friendly.

Easy to use, and supporting several permutations, the CM suite is an excellent solution for a mid to large size business. It's meant to be used by a team, and the functionality can work across websites and landing pages. There's also the high benefit of translation management, providing support for localized products.

I'm giving them a 10, but honestly, I've never reached out to them. I do see them putting out regular content on social media, so they might be responsive to questions there as well as regular customer support. In their posts and communication, they do seem to value their community, so hopefully, they have good customer support. And I've seen them asking for pitches from their community to publish well-paid articles during this stressful coronavirus time, and I really appreciate that.

To be perfectly honest, every one of my concerns and problems has been handled by the support team in a very timely manner. If they could not fix my issue they assured me it be addressed in future updates.

Don't forget about customer service once you have a closed the sale with a customer. Oracle seemed to not care about our needs/timeline after we gave them our Purchase Order

Alternatives Considered

Contently

Contently's sweet spot is their network of writers. I have tried a few other platforms but saw much lower writing quality. The tool is handy, especially if you produce multiple pieces of content every week

While OCM was a lot more money, they were able to prove to us that they are a much better solution to use and worth the extra cost. The reporting, capabilities along with the analytics that was easy to download was a big discussion factor for us.

Return on Investment

Contently

  • Contently contributors have produced some great inbound marking posts and creative materials saving our marketing team significant time allowing them to focus on more strategic plans for the business.
  • The amount of time Contently has saved our internal creative writing staff has more than paid for itself!
Alexander deLong | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Content Marketing (Compendium), legacy

  • Everyone had their own plan and executed them without taking into consideration the impact of another ongoing project. Compendium has created communication between teams that were not communicating before.
