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.

PathFactory

PathFactory works well for content management, and for housing a comprehensive content library. It works great to integrate into a resources page or Explore page to display a large amount of content for users, or a more curated view. The target tracks feature is great for encouraging binging of content by users, I especially enjoy using this feature for creating themed content tracks that have a host of content on a related topic and then a relevant CTA to drive engagement. PathFactory works great in our marketing department, as well as for sales to leverage the platform for sharing assets. I think these are the best use cases for our company. We also leveraged the VEX part of the platform recently for an online event, which could be used in multiple areas of a business. I would say that this platform works best for companies who want to improve their content management and create a stronger content leveraging strategy to retain and attract users. I would say it may not work well for a company that doesn't really make use of online content or has no use for online events.

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.

PathFactory

  • Form Gating - can set your own strategy as to when a form pops up. Can give readers a chance to view content for a certain amount of time before a form popping up. If a user is already known, can also set form to only show up for unknown users.
  • Can create as many unique tracks based on different topics as needed.
  • The support is amazing. Meet weekly with our PathFactory reps, who talk us through any issues we've experienced during the week, plus offer insight in to new features that may be beneficial to our campaigns.

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

PathFactory

  • Greater guidance on internal governance for large enterprise use. They are excellent partners in figuring everything out.
  • Requires meticulous management (tagging, naming conventions, etc). Not a con, but this is why internal governance over tool management and processes is important.
  • Even greater reporting options. They are happy, willing, and eager to work with you to satisfy all your custom reporting needs.
  • Mobile view is less appealing than desktop, especially for heavier content types.

We have seen a lot of value from our team's use of Path Factory. We also like working with this vendor as they actually take our feedback and implement it on their roadmap. A great vendor with a great product

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.

I have found no issues with PathFactory's performance. PathFactory offers several integrations that are useful, although I am most biased towards the integration with Marketo. We leverage this integration to help with our lead scoring efforts, which has been a great benefit to our team

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.

Any implementation of a tool like PathFactory is going to be a heavy lift in terms of organization, strategy, tracking, and execution. However, we on boarded at a time where a lot of what we wanted to do with PathFactory had to be custom built, from CTA buttons to matching the brand to the landing page look, it took a ton of work and a lot of time from other departments to execute and to feel truly “ready.”

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.

PathFactory

I used the incumbent for probably 6 or 7 years across 3 companies. I made the switch due to enhanced analytics engine and the sophistication of the track based content system that is offered by PathFactory. I am very happy with my decision and couldn't imagine doing content marketing and engagement any other way.

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.

PathFactory

  • PathFactory has helped us reach a new target audience with analytics that demonstrates meaningful target account/audience engagement.
  • It has helped us to better understand content consumption preferences of our target audience so that we can adjust our content development plans accordingly and within budget.
  • It has helped us to agree on qualification criteria with sales and so deliver better-qualified prospects/leads. The engagement data on the topics consumed and time spent by prospects/leads on our content gives inside sales/sales a much better indication of how to open discussions.
