We're back to share exciting updates about Story Chief. We've made a lot of improvements to the flows and added a couple of new channels since our latest release. Our goal is to encourage people to write better content which can stand on it's own on a lot of different channels and communities. You do want your articles to be read, right? So please don't make clickbait content to let people click through to your website, but bring good stories in a person's handpalm through intelligent content marketing. This is our philosophy.
So experiment with new channels and communities where there are a lot of readers, like Medium and it's sub-communities, use Facebook Instant Articles to decrease loading times on mobile, use Emailing, make social media posts, etc.. With Story Chief you can do even more and in a very effective way. And don't worry about 'Duplicated' content, Story Chief fixes that automatically for you, so you won't have any problems with Google.
Story Chief is not only a tool to syndicate long reads, but it can also be used as a top layer above your current cms system. For example if you link Story Chief with your website it it adds extra features to your CMS, so in a way you get an enhanced version of your website.
You can write easier, you can collaborate better, get better statistics and also you can add lead capture forms to your articles (which is connected to a CRM) so you can use your content to gather leads.
You will be able to measure a lead cost per article or per time effort put into an article. So you kinda upgrade your cms (or multiple cms systems) with all these features by using Story Chief.
