I love Contently as a brand. They’ve been on the content marketing scene early doing really smart stuff. Not only do they have great content themselves with an industry-leading blog, but they also host cool events for content marketers. I had the privilege of attending one in San Francisco where Facebook talked about their content marketing strategy and we all went home with content marketing swag. I even hired Contently as a platform years ago for two different brands I’ve worked for as the Head of Content.
But, I do have a little secret. I’ve always thought it was a bit ridiculous that brands actually pay Contently’s high prices. And now, it’s not a platform I’d recommend to my First Page clients. Hear me out.
