Pros: Allows you to create a blog post using their editior and can then syndicate your content across multiple marketing channels. Most syndication apps only let you send the post to your social media accounts, Story Chief allows you to also send to your Wordpress blog for publishing, email notifications to lists of influences you add, send to Medium, social media, and RSS feeds. They also have a cool analytics dashboard to see how people are interacting with your content across the web. I only publish blog posts via Story Chief now. If you are concerned about duplicate content, you can have it post to your blog first and then set the rest of the syndication for any date you wish.

Cons: By default, it selects it's own blog platform as the default main platform for the content, I have to swicth to my Wordpress blog each time to make sure my blog is the main platform. They should fix this but as of today have not.

Overall: If you log then this is a must have tool. Saves you lots of time sharing your content and also gives you valuable analytics.

Pros: Story Chief is so very easy to use and I love the built in SEO guidance as you write. I've still not quite figured out why, but it makes my writing so much easier and faster.

The formatting of my Blogs is also far more straightforward, plus being able to embed pictures and videos with ease and no code embedding skills required. It's all just one link or one click.

The built in CTA and lead capture forms are also very useful, and again, no design skills required.

Best of all, when I'm done, I can upload my Blog across my social media platforms and to my WordPress site at the click of one button. A particularly great feature is also being able to make changes and edit the Blog and have those changes automatically update all other versions of the Blog.

The Support from the team is also second to none and they are fast, responsive, and extremely helpful.

Cons: There isn't really anything I don't like about the Story Chief software.

Overall: I love to write , and time had to be put aside to do so. Using Story Chief has saved me a ton of time and effort because the intuitive layout, hints, tips, and in-built guidance has shaved hours off my Blog creation time.

Thank you Story Chief!

Pros: At the core, Story Chief is a robust, online-based, writing tool. But it's so much more. Not only it offers a built-in SEO tool, but it also allows users to syndicate the written content to other channels like WordPress, Facebook, and Medium, to name a few.

Cons: It's still being developed, but it would be nice to be able to choose distribution channel before started writing.

Pros: - Customer service is a chat away. This was really helpful because I'm tech savvy but not web savvy.

- Blog functionality is free and looks very nice.

- The blogging functions are very intuitive. It's super easy to add pictures to text, hyperlink, etc.

Cons: - It needs to be more solopreneur friendly.... for example, because I don't have a LinkedIn company page, I can't use it as one of my channels. I'm not ready to be a company yet but want to build a brand. This could be an easy fix.

-

Overall: I'm beginning to build my brand and business here. I will be a loyal user. As I learn more, I will likely lean in to using more of the paid functionality. I think this is a really good product.

Pros: StoryChief's user interface is fantastic and easy to navigate. The writing editor is similar to Medium's writing editor, but it has more features than Medium's restrictive editor. The writing editor is so simple and so well done that the reporters at a news agency I'm involved with don't want to go back to using Wordpress's editor again. The platform has saved us a lot of time creating stories and sharing them across a variety of social media platforms, including Google Amp and Facebook Instant Articles. We're publishing stories a lot more frequently and expanding our reach because of Story Chief.

Cons: Story Chief doesn't yet have an easy way to import categories and tags from Wordpress. This missing feature means our team has to manually check our website to see what tags and categories should be used. The photo gallery lacks a lightbox feature so it's sometimes hard for our readers to view images on mobile devices.

Overall: We are very pleased with Story Chief. We plan on relying on Story Chief to continue growing our news agency.

Pros: Very complete, overall very good looking and bugfree:)

----------

It enables a quick setup of a blog on your own domain (blog.domain.com) and after you've written a few articles, you can even outsource the maintenance of the blog by using the matchmaking service.

You can feel there is a lot of software experience involved - it runs very smooth and frictionless.

Cons: I understand we can't have everything but we're using a niche CMS called wagtail - would be great if there was a connector to Wagtail too.

Overall: We've been using storychief for hosting our blog for 6m-1y and it works flawless.

Pros: Story Chief has an awesome feature set that truly delivers exceptional value for money

Cons: The entry level plan is a little restrictive if you are a keen content creator

Overall: Overall I have been really impressed with the insight and reach this product provides. I can reinvest my time in crafting exceptional content rather than getting tied down in ceremony of platforming it. Thanks to the streamlined workflow I can now produce double the amount of articles and really understand how my audience is interacting with my content on a granular level. This level of insight was just not possible before Story Chief.

Pros: Usually you write a blog post and then you have to copy and past it to all your different channels. With Story Chief you only once set up your channels. Afterwards you are writing your post once, and with one click you send it to all of your channels and social media you want.

No more pain to use different editors with different options. No more pain to log in in each and every channel or social media platform to spread your word.

Cons: What did I least like? That I did not know earlier that this software exists. ;-) To be earnest: To me there is no "con".

Overall: By using this tool I found out that my motivation to post my writing grew again. And by delivering my written words to different channels by only one click my total number of clicks and conversions rises and rises. That is a really great experience.

Pros: Story Chief is not only a writing tool, but it's also a content distribution. Users can connect multiple channels to spread out their stories.

Cons: If you want to publish your writing to as many channels as possible, the process of setting up the channels takes a lot of time.

Enjoying it now and looking forward to continued improvements

Pros: I love how easy it is to blog. I love that it has a mobile option that works pretty well. The customer service is very responsive and I love being able to easily see how much activity is happening on my blog.

Cons: The mobile software is a little wonky. I can't always get things to stay typed if that makes sense. Also, I've had a glitch with my medium account that they have not been able to figure out. Also, I'd like the blog to have a better way to create a navigation menu at the top of the page so that it fits the design of my website at least a bit.

Overall: I'm very much enjoying the software. Very glad I purchased it!
