Pressimus Is A Powerful Suite Of Tools For Writers
6 years
The World Needs Your Voice, Your Voice Needs Pressimus
Pressimus Is For Businesses -- It's Great For Reputation Management & Marketing

Most "content creation" software -- software that allows you to write -- is basically the same. You've got a space for a title, a spot for the the body of the article, and a bunch of formatting tools. Basically, sites like Wordpress, Square Space, Medium and others are just word-processors that publish online, and they borrow heavily from Microsoft Word which is now (eek) decades old.

Not only is this uninspiring, it's downright intimidating. Every writer knows that their biggest nightmare is a black page:

Pressimus, on the other hand, is designed to quickly search the internet and get the writing process started, all from within the editor page. Using the "concierge" to the right of the editor, you can easily search popular websites like Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, and others, and pull content right into your website. 

Just type a search keyword in the "Multi-search" box:

And pop the results you want right into your new article:

It's that simple. Pressimus performs real-time searches, and the results update, so even if your searching Twitter for developing news, you'll never fall behind the story and you don't even have to leave the editor. 

You can even view your Twitter timeline, favorites, or mentions, with the single click of a mouse. One more click and your pulling that content right into your articles in nanoseconds. 

You can also  add multiple tabs -- fill them up with searches, individual Twitter feed or lists, or even real-time updates from Instagram.

Pressimus also doesn't restrict you to simply linking to cool content. You can embed Tweets, pictures, or videos right into your posts without needing to play with code. You can also embed previews of other articles right into your posts. Just paste any URL into the "Snippetize URL" box and press "go":

Then you'll get a preview of the article:

Click or drag the "Snippet" into your article, and voilà!
If that's not inspiring enough, Pressimus had a full-fledged newsreader built right in. Below the editor you can view the Pressimus "Ticker," showing you updates in real-time from other Pressimus accounts you can follow. But it also shows real-time live news updates from a curated and categorized list of news providers,  and a real-time news search features (click the picture to see a larger image).

Once again, hit one button and you can pop the preview of any of those articles right into your news feed:

Pressimus then easily lets you publish your new post, called a "Press," in the "publication" and "stream" of your choice, allowing you to easily sort and categorize your updates so your readers can find exactly what they're looking for (more on this later).

Premium users, such as myself, can even embed their presses or streams onto other websites. Any place you can embed a Youtube video or Tweet you can embed an entire article or liveblog using Pressimus.

But I'm getting way ahead of myself. We'll look at some of these features later.

For now, just know this -- Pressimus was invented by writers, for writers. If you're just using a content management system, you've missed the 21st century, so sign up for an account and try it out!
