Likelihood to Recommend

CoSchedule

CoSchedule is well suited for:
  1. Marketing teams who are trying to move away from spreadsheets.
  2. Small teams that are quickly expanding in size.
  3. Organizations who can't afford expensive project management tools.

gShift

gShift's pace of development is pretty amazing and they are very responsive to enhancement requests and other feedback on their solutions. gShift is well-suited for an agency environment where multiple clients need the basics in keyword rankings and website analytics and PPC reporting integration. gShift is less suited for a large organizations with multiple properties or web presences that are all integrated but require silos for reporting purposes or any type of parent-child reporting relationship that necessitates reporting at the property level as well as summarized reporting for all properties.

Pros

CoSchedule

  • The monthly calendar view gives me a broad overview of all the content we have in production.
  • The notes section within each blog topic helps me keep an organized list of items or links relevant to that topic.
  • The headline analyzer gives me another option to test my headline before publishing, to see how it scores.

gShift

  • Keyword Rankings - gShift allows you to track keywords by search engine, by device, and by location, giving you side-by-side views how you rank and appear in all use cases. gShift also tracks Google local map rankings, which provides greater insight for businesses with multiple rooftops and locations that want visibility into how customers can find them in different geographical regions of a metro area or on mobile vs. desktop.
  • White-labeled reporting - gShift allows you to run competition reports, keyword ranking reports, and comprehensive web analytics reports that pull in Google Analytics, Google AdWords, and Google Search Console data, making it less likely you have to provide your clients with separate reports from separate, third-party solutions.
  • Custom Dashboards - somewhat similar to Google's dashboard functionality although more limited in scope, you can create custom dashboards to share with members of your organization in real-time or export via PDF.

Cons

CoSchedule

  • Would like to replicate some of the functionality of Buffer (sharing other content easily from multiple sources) to consolidate our marketing calendar in one place.
Jeremy Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • Minor bugs and defects are an ongoing issue - for example, PDF export capability for custom dashboards seems to be down frequently. While these type of defects are always resolved in 1-2 weeks, the fact that some of them keep reoccurring is an ongoing frustration.
  • Custom Dashboard functionality is limited to pre-set defaults as far as what data points or "beacons" as gShift calls them, that you could pull.

Based on 3 answers
I didn't have to use their official support, but I can say that they put out a lot of content online to help users. Their YouTube page has quite an array of tutorial videos explaining how things work and how to get the most out of their tools. If you're struggling, before picking up a phone or blasting off an email, try searching for your problem on YouTube or their forums.

Alternatives Considered

CoSchedule

CoSchedule provides collaborative planning of projects. The calendar view is very well designed. Meetings and tasks can be scheduled and tracked easily. Whatever is being done, no matter how big the task/project is, it gives a bird-eye view of everything. Additionally, it also integrated very well with WordPress. Their customer service team is also very helpful.

gShift

gShift is more user-friendly and intuitive, particularly for sharing access with members across your organization who do not have the same level of digital marketing savvy. Additionally, gShift integrates reporting for web analytics, search visibility, social metrics, and PPC in one platform and one reporting tool in a way that the other providers do not.

Return on Investment

CoSchedule

  • Probably too early to tell for certain but it is definitely value priced right now. Fully developed content management platforms are running in $15-$20k per year range and more. You can get into a CoSchedule solution for $
  • Team has found it easy to sign on and review tasks so this is a big time saver. More could be done to enable Guests easier access to content they need to review
  • It's way faster that other scheduling apps we have tried. The fact that it runs on a cloud based app or inside your Wordpress app is a real plus. Auto save feature also means you don't have to remember to save your content.
Al Schoneman | TrustRadius Reviewer

gShift

  • We have been able to identify other keyword ranking opportunities and increase our on-site conversion rate.
  • gShift has helped us prioritize content and discover content that is over-performing, and better optimize that content and use it for remarketing purposes.
