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.

InboundWriter

I think most users have found that InboundWriter is every bit worth what you pay for it. At a freemium model, it's affordable and helpful in analyzing your posts for SEO direction. It is particularly well suited for getting focused terms on specific topics, and less on more general terms.

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.
Brandon Weaver | TrustRadius Reviewer

InboundWriter

  • Very easy to use and follow direction.
  • The price is right for this freemium Wordpress plugin.
  • Helps discover what content and keywords are popular around your subject matter.

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

InboundWriter

  • Sometimes tough to decide what direction to follow without keyword stuffing your content.
  • Colleagues have complained about the Document Score being unreliable at times.
  • It's only as good as the information you put into it and lacks the ability to give you more high level though leadership terms/topics.

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.

The InboundWriter support is certainly sufficient for the type of troubleshooting you may encounter when using the tool. There are chats and forums available with best practices or knowledge share. For bigger issues, even WordPress can serve as a support system for getting to the answer quickly. Luckily, you're more likely to find that it is a very intuitive tool that is easy to use.

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.

While Yoast is also very useful as a free WordPress plugin that helps up your SEO game, where it stops at just providing direction for your meta data, like titles and descriptions, InboundWriter takes your search engine reach a bit further and helps you create relevant content for your industry that targets the right keywords and topics.

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

InboundWriter

  • InboundWriter has helped us craft more SEO-driven content and balance our keyword usage.
  • InboundWriter has also helped us hone in on the specific topics we should be covering for our industry.
  • Overall, it has helped us achieve our goals of creating pillar content and driving more organic traffic.
