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: One click publish to all major platforms including. I LOVE StoryChief.

- Blog inside my own WordPress Website

- Google My Business (Game changer right here)

- Facebook Page

- Facebook Group

- LinkedIn

- and many many more integrations.

I create my content in StoryChief and I publish in many with no headache. You know what's even better? If I have to edit a previously published content, I only have to edit in StoryChief and boom - StoryChief pushes the update in all the platforms. This saves me tons of time. Thank you for coming to my life.

P.S.I have to mention that the team behind StoryChief is amazing and hardworking. They maintain professional communication all the time and work very hard round the clock. Keep it up.

Cons: None at the moment. The team is very proactive and are improving and finding new integration consistently.

Overall: Love the tool - saves me a lot of time.

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: The platform is very user-friendly, and the support is excellent. It makes publishing enjoyable. For both: creator and the end user. I have never had a chance to post so many different articles on so many destinations (social platforms, WP, emails). Extremely useful in practice.

Cons: It took some time to get used to all the different options you have with publishing. Now I feel like Chief of Stories :)

Overall: Excellent, awesome, superb

Pros: StoryChief has a simple interface for writing stories, which in my opinion is what you need. Having written your story, the next stage is to add an image and meta information that is later used where snippets are required for posting (eg. Twitter and Facebook). After that, you get to select which channels you want your story posted to, which is the Primary channel (which I usually set to a blog), and posting schedule - which is excellent because the story can go to my blog first, followed by syndication to my other channels. All very easy to do. Lastly, I get to see the stats on the number of views and reads. And I'm still only covering half of what this can do.

Cons: For one channel I noticed it does have the StoryChief branding attached as the delivery mechanism, but my guess is that's required. I'm not sure which channel it was when I last spotted it, but it's no big deal for me.

Overall: I didn't watch a single tutorial for a start. I realised pretty quickly that setting up my integrations was necessary, and from there creating a new story was just simple. You set up your channels, write your story, and hit the publish button. That's it. Super simple.

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: I can syndicate my content across multiple networks, send emails to specific people and view usage data all in a single platform. Whenever I publish a new blog post on StoryChief, it automatically triggers a chain reaction that syndicated my content to dozens of places that I setup beforehand. This not only syndicates to social media, but other blogging platforms, rss feeds and email campaigns.

Cons: The default blogging platform is set to their own blog platform, I have to manually change it to Wordpress every time, they should fix this.

Overall: Very positive. Saves me a bunch of time promoting my blog posts and creates a single platform where I can check out the view stats across multiple platforms to see who is reading my content.

Pros: My favorite part is the seo-optimization. You can plug in a keyword and it will tell you if your density is too high or low. It also gives suggest for your url length and other seo features. Storychief also has many integrations so that you can automatically post your article onto other social profiles. If you find out there was a mistake, you can unpublish the article and re-publish it again!

Cons: I wish it had the ability to add custom html. This would allow for more customization of the article.

Overall: Overall, I love story chief so much! I've tried many other apps, but I love how this app makes my content writing a seamless process because of the integrations and seo tools. The customer service has always been extremely responsive as well.

Pros: It's actually hard to know where to start. In the month I have been making use of Story Chief I've saved so much time and hassle that to point out one feature as best is hard. But in effect the fact that I save myself at least two hours a day - and for a freelancer every second is money - is probably the biggest bonus of all.

Cons: Nothing. I am, to sound corny, currently in love with this software.

Overall: I maintain over a dozen different client blogs, all of which I must create at least three blogs a week for. By being able to post directly into Story Chief and then set publication not only to the site but also to all social channels and to create a newsletter for Mailchimp - all at the same time - has been a real game changer. And their customer service is stellar.

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.

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.

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.
