      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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!
