Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Great for if you are looking for content produced quickly, efficiently, and to a set of standards you provide. Not so great if you aren't very sure of what you are looking for. Like at a hairdresser's: if you are less specific in your requests you are more likely to be disappointed.

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.

Zerys

  • The customization options for the written pieces you can request are endless and thorough.
  • Some writers are very fast and effective, making our link-building process quicker.
  • It provides notifications along every step of the writing process so that you always know where in the pipeline your content is.

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

Zerys

  • Some writers have a poor grasp of the English language, which lowers the quality of the work they provide.
  • The UI can be confusing due to the amount of things you can click on on a given page.
  • Can be difficult to learn to use due to its complexity.

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.

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.

Zerys

  • Zerys has allowed us to grow our linkbuilding campaigns much more quickly than we would if we tried to create all of the content in-house.
  • We save so much time hiring outside writers to write content rather than writing it ourselves.
  • We are able to take on more projects than ever because we can rely on Zerys' writers to get things done on time.
