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.

SEMrush

SEMRush is a great tool for any SEO campaign, especially if you are doing a lot of continued research on new keywords to target, if you have competitors to beat, links to acquire or monitor, etc. You can have multiple projects at one time, so it's great for a small to medium size agency that is managing multiple clients. There is a bit of a learning curve with it, but if you get in there and use it frequently, it provides a lot of value.

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.

SEMrush

  • Site audits: This feature quickly identifies issues and deficiencies found on our client's websites so that we implement fixes to correct the issue(s).
  • Keyword tracking: This feature is great for letting us know what keywords are and aren't performing well for our client's site(s) vs. the competition.
  • Reporting: Reports are quick and easy to pull, and simple for the client to read and understand even if they have limited technical knowledge.

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

SEMrush

  • I'd like to see better, more customizable dashboard widgets.
  • Pricing based on how many keywords are being tracked is not a great model.
  • I'd like to see reports take into account both mobile and desktop collectively, instead of keeping them separate.

SEMRush has a slight learning curve, but everything is organized really well. Once you learn where everything is, using the software and running reports is incredibly easy. You can easily add new projects, get help for improving on-page SEO, and there are even video tutorials that walk you through the whole system if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

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.

This is a great tool that helps you identify the keywords that are common among our competitors. Similar to the keyword gap tool, we also use Backlink Gap tool that help us in determining the backlinks our travel website competitors. It also displays the SERP results list for the specific keyword and with this tool we have already ranked 5 pages on Google's first page

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.

I have not used another product like SEMRush. Although I do not have anything to compare it to, I think this platform is the total package! Even if you are only using the Keyword Magic Tool or using Domain Overview to look at competitor metrics, this platform with provide you with more insight, clarity, and information you need to create your best campaign / marketing strategy

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.

SEMrush

  • SEMRush has allowed for our marketing team to have a better focus on what keywords make sense for our pages to rank for, giving us data-backed decisions and saving us time.
  • We have also been able to easily track the changes in our organic traffic month to month, especially by keyword. Having the ability to see which keywords are providing the most value has influenced our content strategy as well as our backlink pursuits
