Overall Satisfaction with Contentful

Contentful is being used by the Marketing Department and it addresses the need for a CMS to manage the marketing efforts of our company. We use it for our thought leadership blog and for our direct marketing pages including gated content. In addition, we create a pathway for our users to login to our product.
  • Flexible. This CMS can be easily extended and provide access to dynamic content
  • Simple. The WYSWG is very easy to work with and identifying pages and content in the system is fairly easy
  • Clean Interface. The interface is clean and uncluttered keeping focus on the content and not other factors.
  • Licensing. There is no way to step up from free gracefully over time. It is free or pay big $$
  • Internal search is horribly lacking and thus extending site search using their product fails in comparison to other products.
  • Agile workflow
  • Empowered Teams
  • Reusable content
Contentful was affordable and much simpler than the Java based systems and preferred over a PHP solution

Did Contentful live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Contentful again?


Contentful is well suited for folks who want a simple, clean, easy-to-use interface for a JAVASCRIPT website. If you do not want a javascript website you should look [elsewhere].
