Storyform, found online at Storyform.co, is a new company that says they can give anyone the ability to create beautiful stories on their website using their wide variety of templates and features.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the goal of Storyform is to provide their customers with the ability to quickly and easily create beautiful stories on their websites with such little time and effort that they can spend their time doing what they truly want to do – creating content – without having to worry about how to get their information onto their domain in a way that is visually pleasing to their visitors.
To do this, Storyform promises that they can integrate with your existing website and transform any static blog posts or photos into “immersive narratives” by allowing you to choose from their selection of templates and letting them do the rest.
Storyform uses artificial intelligence to match your content with the layout that is best suited for it and promises that you will always be in control of your own content – all articles are hosted on your own site and integrated with your own CMS, with no microsites or subdomains.
And no matter what story you are trying to tell, Storyform says that they allow your readers to read in the way they are used to – no shrunken columns of text or endless scrolling. Stories will be formatted like stories and readers will flip pages when they are ready to move on, for the best possible user experience on your website.
Customers can get started using their Template Editor service completely for free on a single domain, and when you are ready to upgrade to a paid account you have the option of moving to their Plus account, which is priced at $8 per month and offers 10K Pageviews, one Domain, their Template Editor, Premium Templates, HTTPS, Analytics, and Support.
Finally, if the Plus account is not enough, they also offer their Business Plan account which offers everything in the Plus account, as well as Analytics, VIP Support, White Labeled Posts, Custom CSS, and Self Hosted Files, but you must call them to receive a custom price quote.
The Storyform website is very clear that they do not provide refunds for monthly fees or for any money paid toward upgrading your account. Generally speaking, companies that provide professional services that are paid for on a month-to-month basis and do not lock their customers into long term contracts do not offer refunds, instead choosing to allow their customers to cancel their service without penalty at any time.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by email at [email protected] or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
Unfortunately at this time there are very few, if any, reviews about this company and their services that have been written by actual users and website creators, making it difficult for new prospective customers to know whether they would really like to try this product for themselves.
There is an independent blogger review of this product which says that while the templates provided by Storyform.co are truly beautiful, they are probably not the best product for people who really need full control over the appearance and layout of the information on their page, as the Storyform template will move the location of pictures, captions, and logos to where they feel they make the most impact or best integrated with the text.
While this may not matter to some users, this could potentially be a big issue for others. Thankfully Storyform.co has a free service that potential users can try to see for themselves what kind of problems this service may cause them.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are certainly other services available online that offer customers standard templates for their web content, depending on your needs, whether your website is text or photo heavy, and more.
