Jekyll is great for people who aren't intimidated by editing HTML, CSS, and Markdown files, people who are on a shoestring budget, and people who want a blazing fast website. Jekyll may not be the best option for people who aren't interested in editing their websites in a text file and would rather have a WordPress-esque back-end from the beginning.

Prezly
Since this platform is so easy to use when creating or managing communication workflows, it is recommended to work mostly with scenarios that generally require several processes to complete each group management, for example, to cover from the follow-up of employees within the communications team to the management of the team's communication processes.

Prezly
  • The contact management system is a little wonky but it has improved over the last two years and I expect that trend to continue.
  • The grouping system (segments) and tagging is not intuitive. I've had many missteps in trying to get content to particular segments while deselecting individuals.
  • You cannot add another group of people to a distribution without going back and recreating the same distribution. you can add individuals but not groups.

Alternatives Considered

Jekyll is integrated into GitHub Pages, which made it an easy choice. Using Jekyll was also easier as there's not really a server or a database to configure and you can just get things started from day one. Running and verifying content changes locally for developers is super efficient as Jekyll runs locally, too.

Prezly is much more user-friendly than Cision but isn't as robust. The pricing is similar and I believe Prezly beats it out a bit. Overall, the UI is much better in Prezly giving it the edge.

  • Jekyll has kept our costs low, very low, on all the projects I've used on it. Think $10 a year low.
