    CoSchedule is great for businesses or agencies who need an overview of all their marketing efforts, and who want to establish collaboration between multiple departments. The calendar view is one of the best we've worked with and makes it easy to see exactly what's happening. There is some slight clunkiness when it comes to admin-related tasks, and a few things aren't easy to find, but there's great support.

    If you have a lot of content on your website but are seeing low engagement rates or a low number of assets viewed per session, Pathfactory is great at creating an experience that engages prospects and encourages them to continue reading your content & continue their learning.

    Pros

    CoSchedule Marketing Suite

    • Visually represent your content in one centralized place
    • Heavily customize your calendar settings (project types, icons, tasks, filters, etc.)
    • Better implement approval procedures
    • Create read-only calendars for stakeholders so they can view the upcoming items on your calendar
    Nate Casimiro | TrustRadius Reviewer

    PathFactory

    • Micro-personalized content recommendations.
    • Perfect for enabling and enhancing sales pipeline.
    • Pretty easy to use and roll out.
    • Great support from the PathFactory - they are very helpful, quick to respond, and always up for training sessions and creating custom requests.
    • Great for Inbound and Outbound Marketing.

    Cons

    CoSchedule Marketing Suite

    • The import Google Doc to WordPress functionality never worked successfully or reliably for me. So I just manually copy and paste Google Docs to the WordPress editor instead.
    • The social sharing counter was not that helpful, because it only counted Facebook and Google+. Who uses Google+ anymore? Plus, now they don't even show the social counter in the monthly calendar view. so you can't see the numbers without doing some extra digging.
    • In the monthly calendar view, some titles get cut off if they don't wrap cleanly in the day's box. So I would make it look cleaner instead of having words broken up by a hyphen.

    • Analytics: it is sometimes hard to get a clear overview of our KPIs because different analytics are accessible in different areas and the experience sometimes feels a bit scattered.
    • Tracking: I think PathFactory could provide more clear ways of tracking activity and leads and tried-and-true strategies.

    Overall, I think the tool is fairly easy to use to get a basic content uploaded to create a track and even the more complicated features become easier once you become familiarised with the process

    I think there was only one time where we had issues reaching our account manager, otherwise PathFactory was always willing to hop on the phone to talk through strategy, to work through issues, and help build custom solutions to fit our needs. Customer service is a big selling point of PathFactory.

    The analytics and reports feature is fairly new and have proved very popular with many areas of our business and is growing in popularity. The metrics that are attainable are very insightful and provides a clear picture on the performance of the track.

    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.

    Working with the Solutions Consultants is amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable and willing to go way above and beyond - ie working in our Marketo instance to trouble shoot form issues.Love having access to chat the support team in-app. CSMs are knowledgeable and we also get to draw on the expertise of marketers inside PathFactory

    The customer service, from technical through to customer success, is one of the biggest reasons I'd recommend PathFactory. This is true of their training. It can be as bespoke as you like, at least in my experience, and the team is always willing (where possible) to incorporate your suggestions.

    The PathFactory team was very helpful when implementing the product. They gave us a lot of recommendations on best moving forward. As a note to new users, when implementing I would make sure that you create with your team a system to make sure that the platform is scalable. My team was able to do this through creating a foldering structure, naming conventions for tracks and assets, and ensuring tagging is used on all content uploads. I would also make sure when implementing that you have an understanding of how your team will track success and that your brand team is involved to make sure that there is consistency in the look and feel of the tracks

    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.

    I wasn't involved in the purchase decision, but I am glad we chose them! Their team is helpful and knows how to help you accomplish what you're trying to do. If there's a feature you see isn't working right or that you need their technical team will listen and make actual changes.

    Return on Investment

    CoSchedule Marketing Suite

    • 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

    PathFactory

    • Has improved our user experience for content. It makes it a very pleasing and easy experience for users to view and engage with our content. Not only does the platform look nice (especially with the overlay feature that we can make a track hover over our existing webpage) but it works well, too.
    • We've been able to create relevant content tracks that group similar topics in a way that makes sense and better relate to users that are looking for content on a specific industry use case or topic.
    • We've leveraged PathFactory to create a completely revamped resources hub on our site. It looks and works much better than before for users, and we are expectant for how this will improve our users' experience when interacting with our hub of content.
