My biggest project so far: Story Chief

over 2 years ago from , Developer and co-founder StoryChief

I’m so excited to finally post storychief.io (after 4 years of being a lurking member here) the product I’ve been working on. I used to work as a freelancer and found some interesting hurdles when trying to publish content. And that’s when the idea of Story Chief was born.

Looking forward to your findings and questions!

Also my first time on producthunt exciting times!

    Oh yeah. This looks neat. But I need to say this. This super mega chat popup in the corner took up a lot of space and looked broken. Maybe take a look at that :)

    Well done, I like it A LOT!

    I'm gonna give it a try. I've been looking for a simple publishing platform, and the free account with 5 stories a month is a lot anyway....

    Brilliant work!

    Love this, more design founder products, hope to use this soon. Congrats!

    Could you talk a little about the evolution of the dashboard. When I login it looks plain whereas on the screen shot it seems more welcoming and full of stats. Is the screenshot a future version youre planning?

      Sure we're currently testing the new dashboard, it's almost done! As you know the 1% to finish it takes some time. We had a lot of iterations and some tweaks during the development phase. I was going to share the sketches but they are not in my possession right now. Glad you like it because it's going to look exactly like that!

    Congrats on your launch man!

    Looks super slick. Shared internally :-)

    Wow this is awesome. Perfect timing too, as I'm working on launching a super content-heavy blog/digital publication, and hadn't even started thinking about multi-channel distribution. I have a few more in-depth questions, do you have an email I could send a few detailed questions to?

    Awesome! Loving it so far. Will there be an option for embedded images in stories, or am I just missing that right now?

      Thanks, you can upload an image and also create slideshows. Or am I misinterpreting your question?

    This is the first thing I see without interacting with the site, which is unfortunetly. Consider maybe preventing the chat from auto opening?

    Good luck with your product!

      I see Intercom is useful but in this case, it's just not. We will disable it for mobile. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Pretty nice! One question. How does the omnichannel publishing works? Wouldn't the same content published across platforms hurt the SEO?

      Good question! We use the canonical URL to always point to your main website where the article was published first. This way Google does not mark this as duplicate content and you can publish your articles to the communities your readers are on. [We also wrote an article about duplicate content].(https://blog.storychief.io/avoid-duplicate-content-with-story-chief) Did this give you more clearance?

    Looks very useful. The actual value proposition starts at "Publish Faster." Everything above that, like the B&W photos of people, looks like filler content.

      It's very hard to choose a value proposition "Publish Faster" is just not covering everything. In my words, I would say 'Story Chief helps you and your team to the next level of content marketing' But hey looking for better options here so suggestions are more than welcome!
