About ContentCal

ContentCal is a cloud-based content management system which helps marketing agencies plan and publish social media content. Key features include post scheduling, keyword filtering, collaboration, approval workflows, editing, feedback analysis, and filtered search.

ContentCal comes with a social calendar which allows users to add and share visual content with other team members. Teams can use ContentCal to collaborate on upcoming posts and share ideas. Users can also set up workflows for single or multi-step reviews. Staff can tag content by theme or category, and drag and drop posts to fill up their calendar. Filter search functionality enables members to find content and customize views.

ContentCal lets content creators customize header colors and settings for posts, and collect team feedback before publishing. Marketing managers can track engagement and follower growth across channels, as well as share reports with colleagues and clients, and assess social performance across multiple social media accounts. ContentCal integrates with third-party applications such as Zapier, Slack, and Trello.

Fantastic!

Every time I have any question, the online chat provides fast replies.

Recently had an odd issue (which turned out to be a 3rd party issue). A screen share session was offered and the lead developer did a health check on our set-up and zapier integration, and also made some great suggestions which we'll implement.

Pros

Contentcal is very simple to use, but very powerful.

We started using it for Facebook and Twitter social media management, but we've now added instagram, LinkedIn and Google my business.

The zapier integration is revolutionary - we're now pulling in data from news aggregator sites and posting the links for our page visitors to view. We're also exporting from the ContentCal planner to our wordpress blogs to help google see the site as active.

We're doing a few tricks to the content for SEO purposes too!

Cons

I also wish it didn't do as much - I keep find myself building new tricks, when I should probably be doing other stuff!

Would like to see the ability to directly upload GMB photos and and also be able to edit the exif geodata on the images. Some spintax functionality would be great!

OUtstanding - my posting to platforms is much more planned and organised. My ability to view the rest of my team's posting for their clients is seamless. All of which gives me more time to work on my business not in my business.

Pros

It is very easy to use, the layout is simple and intuitive and visually it is easy to see what the status is of each post.

Cons

There is very little I don't like, due to the age of the tool some aspects of it are not as advanced as its competitors BUT the outstanding customer service, flexibility of the team, and constant upgrades far outweigh any cons. I moved away from ContentCal, once, as I was wooed by another glitzy product however I soon returned!!

The tool was okay. It would be great for an entry level social media manager or for internal social media reporting, but for an agency, it lacked the functionality and features we needed.

Pros

We liked the ability to easily schedule social media posts for our clients, save content/links/articles in a content library and add notes and campaigns for internal purposes.

Cons

We like the tool for scheduling purposes but the reporting really lacked the details we needed to send to our clients, which resulted in more work - so we weren't saving any significant amounts of time.

It's a great planning tool; if you are looking for a scheduler with some nice touches this is certainly one to consider

Pros

Love the hashtag set up, the colour codes, the duplication across different platforms. Realise there are lots of features I'm not using; will find time to look at Zap link ups.

Cons

Image pull through is glitchy. Analytics are not detailed, but I use platform data for this so not a problem for me
