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.

SnapApp is well suited for client researching devices like provider avails, session costs, and payment options. Deeper engagement will require outbound/inbound call center capabilities

Pros

Contently

  • Consolidating my work in one place to make my work life easier
  • 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.
  • You can search through a database of professionals to find the perfect person for your given project. Find individuals in your budget offering the exact skills and experience you need.

SnapApp

  • Lead Generation: it is very unintrusive to the end user and they are more apt to provide their information. Plus through the survey, you get a better understanding of their behavior.
  • Content Creation: Creating content in a create and drop system makes this easy to use and efficient.
  • Templates: The templates you can choose from have a lot of variations which saves time since you don't have to start from scratch.

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.

SnapApp

  • It can be frustrating at times to have to custom code basic text edits such as italics, text colour, bold and underline. Text formatting should be part of the basic editor available to all users.
  • It can be difficult to locate tutorials or guides on how to create well-functioning and attractive SnapApps. That being said, their support team has always been responsive & helpful but sometimes it's nice to not have to reach out to their offices for an answer.
  • It would be great to have more shapes & graphics available within SnapApp. Canva (another online tool for graphic design) does a good job of making a wide range of graphics available (both paid & free) - this would be valuable for SnapApp users as well.
  • It would be beneficial to be able to set a brand standard on specific SnapApp's (i.e. font, colours, button style) to ensure there aren't any discrepancies from slide to slide.
  • A double-click text editor would be an improvement on the current click-to-edit feature.

We recently decided not to renew our use of SnapApp. Due to the lack of integration with our version of Eloqua (without an added cost), we determined this was not where we wanted to spend our marketing dollars. We are also streamlining our data collection processes, expanding our employee numbers, and working towards other goals as a marketing department as a company. SnapApp just didn't help us meet those goals

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

SnapApp

We did not review any other apps like this in the lead generation space. They cold called us and this seemed like a good test to get leads in our younger demographic where we have had issues bringing in new leads. I am not sure what other options there are in this space besides BuzzFeed.

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

SnapApp

  • SnapApp has really boosted lead generation in channels where we've struggled e.g. our company blog, owned (not paid) social media, etc.
  • It allows us to create engaging experiences for our prospects that aren't really available through other means.
