If you’re a start-up, you’d need something that fits your budget. While looking for cheaper CMSs would be the common move, we’d suggest that you look at your as an investment and not a purchase. Find a CMS that plays several roles and keeps you from hiring extended high maintenance teams.
We’ve compared a few CMSs in order to understand how they are similar and what are the differences between them. We’ve compared the primary features to help publishers get a clear picture of what these CMSs offer and how they will add value to the brand.
M360 is a fairly new SaaS-based platform that has its limitations with the features. It is designed to integrate comprehensive publishing capabilities with a seamless experience. It is available at a competitive price along with a cost-efficient ad revenue share.
While Kontent.ai and Bold are similar to most of the features. Bold stands apart as it is non-developer friendly allowing you to drive your business without any knowledge of technology. Bold has a better publishing experience as Kontent.ai does not have predefined templates and you will have to build your own templates which can get complicated and confusing when you want to build stories with different structures.
However, Kontent.ai can be powerful when you have to build static, corporate websites.
Bold is better optimized for search engines. Although Bold and Kontent allow you to add metatags, sitemaps, and canonicals. Bold has an edge over Kontent when it comes to Visual storytelling and AMP optimization.
Quintype focuses on building tools to help you grow your business. Bold allows you to add traditional ad slots and integrate subscriptions to generate revenue for your publishing business, which is not possible with Kontent.
Quintype’s pricing is all-inclusive of the Bold CMS, hosting, front-end infrastructure, security, and front-end framework - Ahead. With economies of scale, Quintype democratizes technologies used by the largest media companies to empower growing publishers to focus on content and not be burdened by the technological heavy lifting.
On pricing, while M360 has competitive prices they follow the ad revenue share model. That has advantages and disadvantages.
Kontent.ai has packages from zero-cost pricing for small projects to custom pricing based on the business needs. However, you will have a higher cost of ownership to manage an in-house tech team to build and make changes to your front-end.
Quintype’s pricing is all-inclusive of the Bold CMS, hosting, front-end infrastructure, security, and front-end framework - Ahead. With economies of scale, Quintype democratizes technologies used by the largest media companies to empower growing publishers to focus on content while leaving the technology-heavy lifting to us.
