Hey guys! I'm one of the founders of Contentacle. Thanks for hunting us @charlieirish :) A few months ago @jarrattisted and I were working on another startup, and we were working hard on our content marketing. Trouble is, content marketing kinda sucks. It's rubbish managing spreadsheets, deadlines, guest authors, etc. So we started making tools to help ourselves out. Those tools turned into Contentacle. We're working super hard on making Contentacle the best place for startups to plan, manage and publish content. We're bootstrapping the company right now, and it's just the two of us. Really excited to see how people use our platform, and how we can help people rock their content. Let me know if you have any questions, or if I can help you out with content marketing.

Thanks @charlieirish! Just to add a little bit 😄 When we were working on the other startup, I was in charge of the content marketing. Trouble was, it was really difficult to plan ahead—I found myself struggling to get myself organized. It was a right pain to switch from Excel to our blogging platform! We managed for a few months, but we knew there had to be a better way. We looked around but the options were either too expensive for startups or not right for us. We're aiming for it to be really simple to use and work quickly on feedback we get from customers. We also want to help teach people content marketing on our blog.

Looks cool, guys! One thought: my first question was "does this integrate w Wordpress?" I dug around enough to see it does, but you may want to surface something about 'integrating w your existing blog platform' sooner.

@afhill We're working on our homepage(s) right now so that's awesome feedback, thanks! Do you have any other thoughts about the copy? We're struggling to make it 100% clear what Contentacle does—because we work on it every day we usually fall into the trap of assuming people will just know! 🙈
Jake PetersMaker@jakeapeters · CEO & Founder @HelpDocs
@afhill Andrea, just circling back on this. We've got a brand new marketing site up now at, and hopefully it makes it a little clearer what we're all about. We'll be adding an Integrations page soon with more detail about what we do on each platform too!
