NewsCred's Content Marketing Solutions You Didn't Know You NeedOur content marketing team uses Newscred with our content management system to create and edit blog posts and share social media related to those blog posts. We also work with NewsCred staff to contract with freelancers and get syndicated content to fill any gaps we might have in publishing content to our blog.,Customer Service: They'll contact you with a "we're looking at your issue" email within the hour, even on weekends and holidays. Beyond solving your issues/problems with the software, they'll also follow up later to make sure you don't have additional associated issues. Live Analytics: You're given a snapshot of how your blog content is doing at any point in time, since they've been tracking your posts/content. You can compare this month's traffic to last year's trafffic during this same month. Other data points include: Unique Visitors, Average Attention Time, Pageviews, Engagement Rate, etc...and you'll even get referral traffic source. There's much more that I'm leaving out here. CMP User Interface (UI): Love the easy to use interface to upload blog posts, to use for editing and publishing content, and broadcasting social shares. Besides easily identifiable icons, you can create/edit content in the WYSIWYG or use the html view to make sure everything looks exactly how you prefer. Another cool thing is that the CMP auto-embeds live links of social updates (like Youtube, Twitter, Instagram) for more dynamic blog posts.,Cutting and pasting into the CMP can bring in some weird html and spacing issues and sometimes even with the auto-embedded social shares. This is an issue with freelancers, more than with in-house writers, but needing how to read/handcode html means only a few people on our team can prep and "fix" weirdness in the content. It'd be great if custom modules had the same WYSIWYG functionality. We had NewsCred create an area where we write an intro, to "personalize" each post to our brand voice. But, it requires the person writing the intro to know html, since the WYSIWYG feature is missing.,10,Analytics show us the ROI on investing time in the blog content we're producing. For example: PAGEVIEWS over the last week 3k, +276 over prev. period, that tells us that we're moving in the right direction as far as topics and article length. Now we're working with NewsCred to see how certain pieces of content lead to conversions and eventually SALs. So, our ongoing collaboration with NewsCred brings us even more justification to keep the relationship going. This can save us time, but also make us hesitant to leave/check out demos with competitors.,Contently,Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugins, Meltwater Media Intelligence Platform, CanvaNewsCred rocks for collaborative content creationWe use NewsCred to create, edit, and optimize outgoing blog and social content between multiple contributors (writers, editors, SEO optimization, and so on), and it's always easy for new users to get started quickly, no matter their general skill set.

Our content marketing team uses Newscred with our content management system to create and edit blog posts and share social media related to those blog posts. We also work with NewsCred staff to contract with freelancers and get syndicated content to fill any gaps we might have in publishing content to our blog.
  • Customer Service: They'll contact you with a "we're looking at your issue" email within the hour, even on weekends and holidays. Beyond solving your issues/problems with the software, they'll also follow up later to make sure you don't have additional associated issues.
  • Live Analytics: You're given a snapshot of how your blog content is doing at any point in time, since they've been tracking your posts/content.

Well-suited to large company blogs, like our company, a global SaaS. We have various blogs, in various languages, that use NewsCred to update to all our respective blogs. It's a great way to silo our different blog content, but also to peep at each other's content to repost to respective blogs. NewsCred is awesome in this context, but wouldn't be as useful to a one-person shop that only publishes original brand content. The platform is also great for organizations that need to supplement content with freelance writers and syndicated posts.

  • More sophisticated formatting capability in the publishing tool would be appreciated.
  • The analytics functionality seems still to be under development, but it could be more robust.
The best thing about working with Newscred for us has been the ability to bypass our internal web team to instantaneously publish content (vs. dealing with SLAs of days or weeks), and then the ability to track the performance on our own, again without involving any other internal teams. This has greatly improved our efficiency and performance.

User Review: "NewsCred Overview"

NewsCred is being used in one department at my agency to my knowledge. This software is one of our client's content management system, and is used to publish and organize blog posts. It helps us write the blog posts instead of hard coding them. There are capabilities to go into the HTML and edit that code.
  • Easy to use
  • Useful functions
  • Great customer service
  • Too basic
  • Limited functionality
  • Unorganized
The NewsCred content management system is definitely best suited for companies looking for an extremely basic CMS system. If a business has very simple blogs posts with little formatting required, this is the ideal system. However, for businesses looking for something more complex or flexible, I would not recommend this software.
