Overall Satisfaction with Contentful

Contentful is our main platform for managing all web content except for our blog, so we use it very heavily. It provides a great way for our employees that know little to nothing about coding to be able to access, change, and modify content as if they were coding experts. This makes Contentful well worth it for us.
  • User-friendly.
  • Cost-effective.
  • Powerful.
  • Difficult on the back end.
  • Permissions can be difficult.
  • It's hard to integrate with other platforms.
  • Easy domain management.
  • Clean code.
Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.
Content Author / Administrator
Contentful is very effective at managing simple content, such as a glossary, or different tabs of our website. However, we have found it ill-suited to manage more complicated pages, such as our login page, or others that are a bit more heavy on the coding end. Overall, it is worth what it costs our company.
