We were just beginning a content strategy and until we had our own library of content built out we wanted to at least offer something for our site visitors. We also wanted content that would entice prospective clients to our site. We no longer curate content and have mainly been using it as a way to post our press releases to our site.,Allows you to curate content and narrow your search parameters to pretty specific areas. It learns your selections and overtime serves up better and more relevant content. It works very well with WordPress, it integrates smoothly and allows you to share content on the fly with their Chrome plug-in. Curata's support is great, if you need them they will help out quickly to resolve your issues.,For me the product worked great for what I needed it for, I no longer needed it and was a few days past their renewal date (you have to cancel either 60 or 90 days before the end date of the contract) and they would not work with me. They took the stance of, "Too bad, so sad." They offered me their CMS along with their CCS for this last year, but we never fully used it and was turned off by the lack of customer service initially in this situation...especially after it was a matter of around 10 days or so that I was late. Having to keep reconnecting LinkedIn would throw me off at times. Sometimes the article I was trying to post to WordPress would get hung up and I would need to get a hold of support to help clear the system.,8,I would say neutral for us, but more so because of how we were using it and it being a stop-gap fix for us.,Marketo, Convirza, EverString, Hootsuite Pro, Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Photoshop,Content Author / Administrator,10-100 pagesCurata: A Great All-Encompassing Content Curation SolutionWe are using Curata to curate content relevant to our target audience to supplement our original content production. We are using this content to feed our blog page (which we're transferring to our Curata microsite which is hosted for free with our subscription) where we post third party news and original content, our weekly and monthly newsletters, and our social channels.

Social is not a strong point for Curata, but that was conveyed to me by our sales representative from the beginning.,10,The efficiency of our marketing team has definitely improved. We are able to feed our content channels much better and more productively than we were before.

  • Allows you to curate content and narrow your search parameters to pretty specific areas.
  • It learns your selections and overtime serves up better and more relevant content.
  • It works very well with WordPress, it integrates smoothly and allows you to share content on the fly with their Chrome plug-in.
  • Curata's support is great, if you need them they will help out quickly to resolve your issues.
  • For me the product worked great for what I needed it for, I no longer needed it and was a few days past their renewal date (you have to cancel either 60 or 90 days before the end date of the contract) and they would not work with me.

I liked Curata, but it depends on the use case of how it will be used as to how effective it is for someone. If you are trying to curate content it works great. Had I not been so put off by the issue mentioned earlier I would have given more effort to learn the CMS, so I am not sure how effective it really is.

Curata is great for marketing teams who need good material to supplement their original content creation, and it's fabulous is you have an extremely targeted audience.We're a very lean team, and Curata is a great asset for us to streamline our processes of feeding a variety of different channels. There are other solutions that are stronger in terms of social sharing capabilities, so if that is the main feature you are looking for I would suggest looking into Curata but also researching other solutions as well.
