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.

NewsCred

Well-suited to large company blogs, like our company, a global SaaS. We have various blogs, in various languages, that use NewsCred to update to all our respective blogs. It's a great way to silo our different blog content, but also to peep at each other's content to repost to respective blogs. NewsCred is awesome in this context, but wouldn't be as useful to a one-person shop that only publishes original brand content. The platform is also great for organizations that need to supplement content with freelance writers and syndicated posts.

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

NewsCred

  • The UI is intuitive and easy for users to navigate, and also easy for me to manage.
  • NewsCred constantly rolls out great new features that solve user pain, like Track Changes, Version History and automated suggestions for posts to create and boost based on their performance.
  • Support is very helpful when anything goes wrong, and the account reps are very proactive in gathering feedback about needed features.

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.

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.

NewsCred

NewsCred competes with Contently for content management and syndicated content/freelance writers. The interface for NewsCred is much prettier than Contently and they have a more robust platform for all things content marketing. I haven't delved much further into NewsCred competitors.

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.

NewsCred

  • The analytics enables us to much more quickly and accurately determine which of our content is producing high levels of engagement.
