In today’s episode of “should we write something that might potentially be us shooting ourselves in the foot?” – are Headless CMS commoditized to a point where we’re all the same? It’s not really a “hot take” to be honest. The past few years have seen Headless CMS vendors really close the gap on the features they offer. Past differentiators like GraphQL APIs, Asset Management, Localization, and Visual/No-code Content Modeling are considered the bare-minimum expectations today. In fact, on multiple occasions throughout the years, there’s been quite some coverage on how standardized Headless CMS ..read more

During this year, I've spoken with dozens of new agencies and provided existing partners with "first aid and/or guidance" on business and technical issues. I must admit, despite some repetitiveness, I still really enjoy this role; having run an agency for 15 years, I thought I knew quite a bit, but by engaging with all kinds of sizes and cultures, I learn something new every day. It's fantastic! However, one thing still seems odd: the program sounds too good to be true, it sounds like a trap! The P ..read more

Unlike traditional CMS platforms (and suites), which often operate on fixed pricing models, headless CMS pricing is intricately tied to usage and scalability. Businesses get a more flexible and cost-effective approach to managing their content needs, and ideally, more transparency into how their CMS usage correlates to the pricing.
