An absolute must!

Direct response and content marketing testing puts ion interactive at its best! It's really geared towards marketers and can easily be managed without developers. Make sure to create a solid response theme that can be applied across experiences so that you can have consistent branding.

It's easy to create very basic content. But if you want something more custom, it can be difficult to create and takes much more advanced training. You often run into problems that need trouble shooting. The ion team is happy to help with the trouble shooting, but this is not something you can easily learn in a few hours. To make your content look good on all screen sizes and work in many complex situations can be very tricky.

If you want to choose a quick start template and fill in the fields with your content, Ion will be fantastic for you. We've done this with whitepapers and quizzes and it's been great and extremely easy to use.

If you have an exact idea of what you want, and a background in web development, you may get frustrated. Ion has some quirks that make it tricky to fully customize - everyone once in a while I really just want to go into the HTML and make some changes, but can't.

If you are looking to reuse a piece of content for specific targeting (industry or account-specific), Ion is great. The dynamic substitutions are great and very helpful.

ion is good for smaller projects where interactivity is desired to help drive viewers to content. It's more of a marketing tool aimed at consumers, than something that our audience of medical professionals might want to view (unless the interactivity is kept to a minimum).

My team handles marketing and our digital presence. Sometimes we'll have an idea for an email blast or something that we want to promote on our website. Should those promotions need to happen on a short timeframe, we may recognize that ion would have a great tool we could use, but it wouldn't be feasible.

Large marketing agencies should absolutely be using ion. Generally speaking, any company that runs a lot of paid advertising and has campaign-specific landing pages should try ion. Not only will you be able to create high-quality landing pages quickly, but you will also be able to track performance and make changes to improve that performance.

It's a strong solution for landing pages or small micro-sites because it has a lot of built-in functionality that is powerful. But for things like complex web applications or large corporate content websites, I don't think it's the best solution.

If you would like more engagement with potential clients, this is the software to use. Since passive content can be dull, interactive content keeps the mind awake and is sure to keep the visitor interested. It's the next level of publishing white papers to get more engagement with your target group.

With the built-in quick starts - you are never far from completing a project. The micro themes make it really simple to come up with an idea and publish that idea later that afternoon. The ability to have everything templated and ready to go makes this a huge competitive advantage.

Ion Interactive is well suited for making landing pages with accurate record keeping and the ability to connect to different APIs, and it can be up and running quickly. It is also great for managing and maintaining these pages to help keep track of what is working and what is not working.

I don't give 9 ratings easily. Anyone wanting greater user engagement would benefit from ion interactive. I can slap together a simple interactive tool for a social post easily. I also have a plan selector with complex logic built in that would have cost me $50k to build without ion. Now I'm able to duplicate it and make adjustments to use it for various other applications. We've created a couple dozen fun interactive tools for social posts and now we simply re-purpose them easily to create new ones frequently. I just created a new page for our website that we'll want to be fluid; so the site developers suggested we simply embed an ion tool to give us real-time flexibility. Marketers in other divisions are jealous when they see all the fun stuff we're doing--they're gradually becoming ion converts.

Very well suited for projects which demand interactive content, surveys, quizzes, dashboards for the management. Can be created really quick without much hassle. Templates are also very helpful to make work easy. Management really is engrossed with having such demonstrations.

If your company has multiple domains, tons of marketing campaigns, and the desire to have highly customized content, then it is probably a very good choice. Also if your company needs for landing pages to be extremely flexible in how they function and utilize dynamic content, then this tool is definitely a strong candidate.

If you simply want to build a website, this tool really is not for that. This tool is a bit expensive, they market this only to enterprise clients for a reason!

Ion is great when you want to create an experience for your customers that is a bit more creative and hands-on. Their quizzes and assessments are particularly interesting, as the many formats make it possible for you to target different audiences with a type of content that will appeal to them.

That said, if you're looking for something very simple - say a survey to push through social channels - I might recommend something more basic that you can get done quick and dirty.

Ion Interactive is very well suited for creating Landing Pages for your Paid or Social campaigns. It can also be used to create interactive infographics with relative ease and flexibility. The best way is to plan out a page as you would normally do so with wireframes, and then once it's built adding in the interactive elements that take your landing page to the next level.

It is not well suited for creating entire web pages (although it is possible).

As a former digital marketing manager, figuring out how to put together a landing page quickly and scalably that doesn't interfere with your website or SEO is critical. This solves that issue, allowing for ungating content for only the right audience, and having a reference point for future campaigns.

ION is ideal for taking static e-Books and transforming them into an interactive and engaging experience. The analytics provided by ION are what really set this platform apart from others. I would not use ION templates if the experience needs to be highly customizable or have elaborate features requiring additional development.
