Prezly vs WordPress

Prezly gives you a site you can set up in seconds, and a simple way to share your content with your biggest fans.

*Prezly* vs WordPress is a great tool if you want to spend time building a website from scratch, but people say it has a steep learning curve and support is robotic.

Prezly is a mash-up of traditional CRM, a content management system like WordPress, and a newsletter system like Mailchimp.

WordPress has a lot of bells and whistles when it comes to content management.

But when you think about it, most good stories are just text and visuals.

That’s why we concentrated on doing fewer things really, really well.

I love Prezly. It is easy, practical, and super accessible for stakeholders. It has made my life much easier.

Snowbird editor: ditch Gutenberg for a clean editor that does everything you need it to via a sleek interface. Optimized multimedia: Each image, file, video you upload gets optimized for speedy delivery so every page loads super fast – and that’s great for SEO. No workflows: there’s no such thing as a perfect workflow. Instead, you set nuanced user permissions so each member of your team can feel proud to do their best work. Easy linking: easily link between your live posts and embed them beautifully in email communications.

We have very engaged employees who love to tell stories. In order to do so, we needed a good platform.

Why people like you pick Prezly

All-in-1 storytelling

Send your newsletters and manage your contacts in the same place that you publish your stories. No separate logins, no distractions. Prezly replaces two–four tools and simplifies your life.

Lightning fast

In the time it takes an average WordPress site to respond to 1 request, Prezly will already have served 15. That’s fast. Like, really fast. And all that speed impacts the reader experience and your search rankings.

The biggest change for me working with Prezly, is we now have more time to invest in the content making.
