"Terrible service and poor customer experience. Avoid!"

What do you like best?

Nothing, we regretted signing up for this service. We cancelled after 2 months but they charged us for five (they kept our subscription alive even after cancellation).

What do you dislike?

- Really poor content: on the first piece that we requested, we sent a few paragraph with what we would like the writer to cover. His first draft was literally our overview with a few generic words added.

- Charged us after cancellation: we requested cancellation in July. After submitting the request, they offer us 2 free month to see if we would return. At the end of the two months, they restarted charging the credit card without notice or confirmation. We realized it 3 months later.

- Poor customer service: their support person (John) refused to refund us, even though he could see that we submitted request of cancellation and that we never used it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Avoid if you don't want to end up with poor quality content and be charged even after you submit the cancellation request.

"Escritores al alcance de cualquiera"

What do you like best?

Creemos que lo mejor es la facilidad de encontrar escritores y contactar con ellos. Realmente la interfaz es muy fácil de usar y cualquiera que sepa un poco de ordenadores puede hacerse con ella en muy poco tiempo.

What do you dislike?

El servicio al cliente es bastante malo. Les hemos escrito varios correos y no han sido capaces de responder a ninguno a tiempo, tardan bastante. Por otra parte hemos intentado contactar con ellos mediante teléfono pero nunca nos lo han cogido. Creemos que para el precio excesivo que vale este programa deberían de tener un soporte acorde.

Recommendations to others considering the product

En el mercado hay muchos servicios de creación de contenido, pero después de usar scripted.com sin duda lo recomiendo a cualquiera que esté en este negocio. El precio y la calidad ofrecida están a la par, por lo tanto animo a todo el mundo a utilizarlo al menos una vez y ver como funciona.

What Blog Writing Services solution do you use?

"Easy content at the tip of your fingers"

What do you like best?

Content makes the world go around, and while there are many mills, Scripted.com does offer higher quality posts. It's easy to use and you can definitely find talented writers who can provide the content needed.

What do you dislike?

With quality comes price, and Scripted.com is a little more expensive than other products out there. They also recently updated their website and some of their FAQ pages are now broken or don't redirect.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We create so much content at our agency, and Scripted.com allows us to keep the flow of content coming.

"Terrible"

What do you like best?

Subject matter experts at low cost - ease of use, responsive administator and dashboard readiness.

What do you dislike?

Sloppy work, not enough lead time, not enough follow-up to make a compelling project close. Scripted is expensive, too but they don't pay their writers what they charge clients. They pocket a large percentage as I filled out an application to apply to be a freelance writer. It's about $25 a post.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider hiring subject matter experts - actual writers with experience working with industries and products/services aimed at your target audience. A content service / farm is best for general posts, but not nearly as in-depth for decisions consumers need to make or moving consumers down the funnel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Need for SMEs to create quality content.Some verticals were missing real subject matter experts - not just peronsonal finance, but financial advisors were needed to write engaingly on topics that neophytes cannot dispense knowlege.

"Great starting point for freelancers"

What do you like best?

The platform is easy to use. Payments are prompt. The latest additions of direct messaging with clients, the ability to establish relationships with clients, and the marketplace for pitching ideas have been wonderful and made the writing process more enjoyable. It's a great addition to a freelance business, especially if you are just getting into it.

What do you dislike?

Pay is competitive, but not as high as I receive from some other work. However, the platform now lets you enter your own pay rates, so rates are getting even more competitive.

You don't always know where your articles end up unless the client shares them with you. So it's not guaranteed that you'll be able to use articles you submit as samples for your portfolio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pitches are your best chance to get assignments. Jobs that come up as available get taken up fast, and if you don't have a long history with a lot of reviews, you won't get first dibs on the jobs.

"Makes Content Creation Simple"

What do you like best?

The quality of writing has been great and the admin dashboard is informative and extremely easy to use.

What do you dislike?

There is an annual fee in addition to the cost per content piece requested.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are plenty of content creation services out there, but I've had a good experience with scripted.com so far factoring int he cost and quality of content delivered.

"Love Scripted!"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use interface, great customer service, and the actual end product is quite nice.

What do you dislike?

It can take a bit of time to find a few writers that really hit the spot, but that is to be expected. Hard to knock them or their tech for that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and see if it's a good fit, at their prices it's worth it, and no commitment is required

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need quality written content on a continual basis in order to drive inbound leads, assist with SEO, and to develop a presence as a thought leader in our category

"Easy to use!"

What do you like best?

How easy it is to use. It is by far the most user-friendly content management software system that I have ever used.

What do you dislike?

Although the updates aren't bad compared to some other systems I've used, they do happen rather frequently.

"Scripted.com Free Trials and Membership Is a Scam"

What do you like best?

Nothing, I dislike the customer service and the membership model.

What do you dislike?

The customer service has been horrible. They never answer the phone and the email support is slow and rude.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This company if not a scam is poorly run. I cannot express how disappointed I have been with their service.

I love how easy it is to find exactly the kind of freelancer you are looking for.

"Scripted is an incredible resource! "

What do you like best?

The quick turnaround and the accessibility and ease of providing feedback.

What do you dislike?

The price by format can be a little steep but for small companies or one time use, I think it is exceptionally accessible to small organizations.

What do you dislike?

Payment isn’t very fair for the expertise and experience asked for
