WHAT IS IT?
Contently is a technology company that helps brands create great content at scale. They provide enterprise companies with smart technology, content marketing expertise, and vetted creative talent – journalists, photographers, designers, videographers, and all things in-between.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Clients: You get started by engaging them in a demo request. From there if you jump in the platform you will have access to their content workflow system that can hook up to the clients CMS or content platform to automate the publication. They will also connect companies with freelance journalists and other professionals to work on producing high quality content.
Freelancers: You can create a free account and upload your portfolio. They have an algorithm that combs through freelancers portfolios and pushes forward relevant candidates. So when you're setting up your portfolio, make sure you focus on the kind of things algorithms like: namely, keywords that highlight your expertise and skills. Unfortunately, they are not an open marketplace and cannot supply work for all freelancers on the system. They service their client's needs and search for talent on a project by project basis. When there is a relevant gig that fits your background and skills, they will be in touch.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This is a product geared towards enterprise companies. There is no pricing on their site that you can find and the best way to get started with them as client is to request a demo. You will see very big brand names of clients on their site, so this is not for a mom and pop shop.
