Setka

At Setka, we believe that every piece of content deserves to be beautiful. When a great story is combined with design, its true potential is unlocked.

Quality editorial design creates a quality reading experience—multiple studies prove that visual elements and a thoughtful layout contribute to better engagement, higher shareability, more time on page, positive emotions when reading, and higher content or brand recall.

But after years of working in a complex digital publishing environment, we know how hard creating well-designed content can be day after day, story after story. At the time, we were creating 100+ editorial updates per day and with a team of 70+ in house editors and over 600 editorial freelancers. On top of that, over 900 international brands assigned us with premium native content production.

At a certain point we asked ourselves a question: Do the stories we create always get the presentation they deserve?What if we could find a way to give stories custom design, without requiring a ton of extra time or resources? What if we could bring the elements we all love about print design into the interactive environment of the screens we use today? What if we could give editors and designers creative freedom without compromising the integrity of growing technical infrastructures or efficient editorial processes? To answer all those questions, we created Setka Editor

Setka Editor empowers editorial teams to unlock the true potential of digital design. Our user-friendly WYSIWYG tool puts power in the hands of editors to make stories look beautiful. Reusable post styles and design elements allow designers to keep brand voice and style intact. Yet it remains a controlled, safe, seamlessly-integrated and scalable technology, meaning digital product and technology leaders like it, too. (Learn more on our plugin page.) Plus, we want to work with the tools you’re already using—that’s why Setka Editor is Gutenberg and AMP ready.
We hope Setka Editor can give you a better way to design posts. Try it out today!

Yoast

[Only Available on VIP Go]

Yoast helps you to get the most out of your website by making SEO available for everyone. You might know our Yoast SEO plugin; with over 7.8 million active installs, Yoast SEO is one of the most popular WordPress plugins worldwide.

At Yoast, we believe in holistic SEO: not just one aspect of a website, but all aspects are important and should, therefore, be as good as possible. We don’t approach SEO as a trick to rank higher in Google but stimulate site owners to make their site the best search result. All awesome websites have three things in common: they’re easy to use, contain the right information, and they’re fast and reliable. If you do all that right, a website becomes easier to find as well!

Our products help people create remarkable sites. We offer WordPress plugins that make optimizing your WordPress website as easy as pie. In addition to that, our online courses help you develop the skills to make your website easier to find. And it doesn’t stop there: we’ve partnered with Magento and TYPO3 experts and brought Yoast SEO to other platforms too, as we love to contribute to open source projects. All that ties up nicely with our ultimate goal: trying to make the web better for everyone.
