- I like the Wordress plugin that allows using Storify in my Wordpress blog. I set up and installed Wordpress myself on my cloundhostedcommunications.com domain. Using Storify to create a blog post is an experiment I've repeated. It makes it easy to link in story elements and outbound links.
- I was pleasantly surprised that on targeting "Lync vs Jabber' as a long tail keyword search phrase in my blog title "Lync vs Jabber decision point?" that I got "page 1" page results twice, one from the blog instance and one from the storify instance. More analysts and trade journal/blogs are writing about this topic now, so though my post and storify story are no longer on page 1 after a year, I still get weekly inbound traffic from search.
- I was considering trying the business plan to see how we might construct vertical specific solution stories together from Polycom elements and our technology partner solution elements. It appears the plans have changed.
- An option to select from available images would be nice.
- An integrated "tumblr-like' rich editor would be nice. I find myself construction some story element in tumblr just to pull them in
- How can you argue with "free". Anyone can try it. Your only investment is time.
- Using existing stories to copy story elements is a time saver.
Overall, the free version is an 8 for me. With room for a few new features and a little time, this is bound to improve. I found it easy to use and useful from day 1. Adds some quick content creation tools to my web presence toolkit. Since it is free to try, I'd highly recommend you try it.
Modular. Easy to use. Intuitive. I'd also tried Pinterest experimentally. When I found Storify, I liked the storify model better as it allows for easy drag and drop ordering of content elements. If you run your own wordpress blog, this a nice addition via wordpress plugin. Since you can grab story elements from other stories, anyone in marketing will love this tool.
