Moving to a better content management system is often necessary to scale your digital publishing business. We’ve been asked how Quintype’s CMS (Bold) and monetization solutions compare with WordPress and we’ve done our research.
This guide will give you a comparison of features, pricing, performance, and even migration.
While WordPress is massively popular and used by a majority of online websites, the CMS struggles as publishers grow at scale. Many of our publishers who used WordPress before they moved to Bold have lauded its ability to support multiple concurrent users, faster search and better front-end support for multiple screens and screenless devices. Other comparisons of Bold CMS vs. WordPress include -
Content for all devices - PWA, Mobile App, Smart speakers
Optimized for search engine optimization - Sitemaps, schema, canonicals, AMP, Social tags
Integrate with any 3rd party tools tailored to your business needs including Copyscape, push notifications, email subscriptions, and more
Story templates and multiple story types including photo, videos, and live blogging.
In-built Analytics to analyze the performance of stories, authors, and topics.
On pricing, While WordPress is free, you do end up paying agencies to develop your website. Third-party plugin licenses and hosting and other management costs add up slowly but significantly as you grow.
Quintype’s pricing is all-inclusive of the Bold CMS, hosting, front-end infrastructure, security, and front-end framework - Ahead. With economies of scale, Quintype democratizes technologies used by the largest media companies to empower growing publishers to focus on content while leaving the technology-heavy lifting to us.
Additional advantages of not having to hire and maintain technology teams also reduce the total cost of ownership when compared with WordPress. Our monthly costs start at just $50/mo for up to 50k visitors/month.
