Keeps on getting better

Customer Service is quick and for the small hiccups I've had, they have always resolved them with professionalism and surprisingly would ask me if I encountered certain hiccups I think others may have had just to ensure it wasn't a wide spread problem or to alert to one to look out for. Can't say I've found one, but good to know they are hiding problems. Updates, can't say this enough, but they actually release updates and not just some simple "dark" mode or something silly like that. That's really refreshing to know that they are constantly releasing solid updates to their system.

Pros

The ability to manage xx amount of social accounts, scheduling, all what the application says it can do. I've tried many others that have their strengths yes, but always end up resorting right back to CS. Considering this is a young SAAS and in this tough market they are pushing through.

Cons

Searching for different articles can come up with blanks depending what your searching and you have to go crawl outside of the application for extra content to use. I usually have to do this about 25% of the time as no system is perfect and this doesn't stop me from using it.

Feature-filled lovechild of Buffer, Pocket, and your blog

Oh man, huge time saver, helps the entire content creation/curation management process easy because it's all in one place and organized so intuitively. I thank my lucky stars that I was able to purchase a lifetime membership very early on when ContentStudio was new. Seriously it's the MVP of my content strategy.

Pros

SO many features!

- You can write blog/social media posts directly from within the web app
- Automation for campaigns (new blog posts to social media, article links to social media, sharing articles automatically on your blog, etc.)
- Nice-looking interface. Seriously, it's totally a selling point. It makes it even more fun to create content.
- Ability to schedule posts
- The "Discovery" tab. I could get lost for hours, it's a treasure trove for easily searchable, filterable, postable-from-the-website content.
- Integrations galore! Facebook, Twitter, Pocket, the list goes on. There's also a browser extension.
- Responsive and fun on social media

Cons

I'm extremely picky when it comes to tools I use for business, especially if I really like something, which is counter-intuitive, but there you have it.

- I'd love to see more ability to use the article to blog automation more easily. Example: I have my settings such that systematically, I must review any post before it can be published. If I'm unable to log in for a few days, all the now-expired posts have to be opened one at a time and rescheduled -- click date, click time, click post... that sort of thing. If there was a button that you could click that could re-add those posts for the same schedule, just staggered on different dates in the future, that would rock!
- Occasionally posts will not post, seemingly at random. But this isn't super frequent.

All-in-one social organiser

I truly enjoy using ContentStudio. I have since replaced my other social schedulers with this app and it works pretty well, except for Instagram.

Pros

- Extremely versatile: from scheduling social messages to posting on your blog
- Visually clear and easy to use
- Multiple automatisation options
- Multiple integrations with link-shorteners like Replug or Bitly

Cons

- The platform can be a bit slow at times
- The discovery option is a little limited and doesn't work properly within my niche
- No Instagram integration

Easy to use social media management

I am managing multiple client projects using the software and it certainly makes it easy for me to do so.

Pros

Overall, very easy to use and very easy to navigate. Content suggestions are effective.

Cons

The scheduling feature should make suggestions regarding posting times based on all available data, not just based on posts made by Content Studio. Also, the software should "copy" manually entered scheduled times to avoid the user having to enter each day manually.

A product that make sense and actually works!

Working smart not hard and is intuitive and easy to use.

Pros

It has taken the concept of sharing into a new level between social posting and automations there is a lot to offer. The navigation is easy and most importantly customer service is one of the best that I have dealt.

Cons

As of now I don't have much to complain about :) but since this is a mandatory field I would say more integrations.

Build the content you have dreamed of!

Clear benefits are time-saving and a big variety of content to utilize.

Pros

ContentStudio is the proof that easy content distribution is doable! There is a little learning curve, but here is where the excellent support team comes into play. I had just some questions which could have been answered by chat or email, but I got treated to not one but two onboarding screen sharing sessions. Adil and his team showed A class customer support. During the support sessions, we came up with some great to have functionality but is currently not available. These points were written down to discuss with the team to evaluate for feasibility. Very pleased with that level of interaction. ContentStudio alone is more than worth getting to get your content out there on your social media channels. Combined with their sister companies product, Replug, you have a real powerhouse; shorten, track and optimize your links with catchy call-to-actions, retargeting pixels, branded links and powerful analytics. I advice getting both products as they are beautifully integrated.

Cons

There is not much that I don't like. Integrations with more third parties would be stellar but are being actively worked on as I type. More enhanced team settings, which I requested, are planned as well. Would be nice to have it now already, but that can't be counted as a Con.

It has lots of features I always wanted that is missing in some of the bigger platforms

It saved me alot of time scheduling posts for the week for multiple clients. I can do everything from the one bit of software without having to switch back to other platforms

Pros

I love being able to schedule the same post for different times. Simple things like using emojis that is missing from platforms I used in past like buffer.
Being able to watch keywords for content is also great.

Cons

Would love it to be easier to see your upcoming scheduled posts by page.
Some of the trending content seems to be Asian based.

Good overall product

Pros

I like the connection ability and automation ability as well as the searching feature and ability to post directly to social media or any of your connected websites.

Cons

some limitations on customising team permissions. Some issues when clicking back into the previous screen and takes you to the start screen sometimes.

Mr

It helps me to manage posting to my web properties.

Pros

I like that I can schedule content posting at later times and dates. I like that it can curate content from your topics or trending topics. I like the fact it can post to many of the popular social networks like facebook and twitter ans pinterest. I like that it can post to blogs as well.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve but it is intuitive for the most part. They don't have instagram posting yet.

Great product but still contains a few bugs

Eases my content workflow.

Pros

This application is exactly what I need for my business. I get a sense that their suite of products is still veyr new though, as I'm picking up a few bugs as I start to test the product.

Cons

The bugs (obviously) and the customer service has a "live chat" but it can take days for support to come back to you. I think this early stage is where a business like this should increase their support team

All in one easy to use platform.

Saving time! That was the biggest reason for purchasing.

Pros

Takes the place of SEVERAL tools in one platform. I was using another similar product that was extremely difficult to manage. This took all of that away and made it easier to understand, find content and post.

Cons

Have not found anything yet. So far it has been pretty all encompassing of what I expected and need.

ContentStudio is best in class. I do not believe there is another product that can come close.

Absolutely saved me hours and hours with my content. The easiest tool I've ever had for finding highly relevant content. Made my life easier!!

Pros

The best source for content I've found. So easy to use, truly anyone can use it. Searching by keyword is awesome. Using both Feedly and your own feeds is fantastic. The superior automation allows me to schedule for weeks in advance always knowing I'm get top notch content. Also the ability to preview the full content prior to selecting it.

Very nice feature to put your own groups together really allows you to find what you want instantly.

Waqar and his entire team are incredible if you need help or have any questions. Many others could learn a lot by how they take care of their customers. They make you feel like they appreciate you.

For me ContentStudio.io is NOT optional. It's a must have and I used it every day.

Thanks again to Waqar and your entire team. We appreciate you!

Cons

What I like least about it is .... the fact I didn't find it until last November!! There's nothing to NOT like about ContentStudio.io
In my opinion there is none better.

This tool is an angel sent from above!

Pros

Curation PLUS Social Media scheduling/posting in 1 platform. This is what we've been waiting for! There is no learning curve, if there is, it should be just 1 day. It makes our lives easier -- the team loves it!

Cons

So far I've nothing bad to say about this tool. I've been using it for barely a month now and it delivers perfectly. I love it!

Excellent content curation software at a fraction of the price of Buzzsumo!

Pros

Content Studio is an excellent content curation software which costs a fraction of the price of rivals such as Buzzsumo!

Find trending topics in your niche, use RSS feeds for your favourite sites, link all types of social media accounts to curate engaging content for your tribe and establish yourself as an authority in your niche.

There is even the option to do much of this with full automation if you like which could be incredibly powerful once you have managed to narrow down on highly focused keywords for your content. There are numerous automation "recipes" to help you to determine the most appropriate style of automation to use to ensure it is as effective as it can be.

Support has been very responsive thus far and are open to suggestions which is good!

In all honesty, I can probably ditch Buzzsumo and Buffer and just switch all my content curation to Content Studio in the future as it does it all under one roof.

All in all, a great platform to use for all your content curation and scheduling needs.

Cons

There's not a lot to not like if that makes sense! The UI is modern and clean, but it can be a bit slow and unresponsive at times, but this may be because they have just had a spike of new users joining through an AppSumo deal.

Sometimes the articles it pulls in are not that relevant (but to be fair, that is the case for all these curation softwares) but you can exclude keywords to make the logic better.

I have had issues using RSS feeds where I can only add a couple and then any attempt to add more results in an error saying that "this feed already exists," which obviously it doesn't. However, I have just got off a call with their support who says that this will be investigated and fixed soonest.

I wish there was a way to unshorten links on the fly, similar to Buffer, but there isn't.

So, only a few minor niggles.

Easy to find content that your audience related to and share in engaging ways.

Extra content for my audience and engagement from them.

Pros

The various sources of content and sharing capabilities. The support is great and the product has improved in the short time I've used it.

Cons

Wish Instagram capabilities were available - assuming is a limitation of the social network not this app?

I'm really impressed how easy it is to use contentstudio. Clear UI and with a lot of functions.

Social Media Management Tool. I have one tool to manage all my social media activities of my different websites. That is great and would highly recommend this tool to everyone.

Pros

- Clear UI and a lot of functions to discover
- The suggestions tool is awesome. You can find a lot of great content. It's possible to find content with keywords and domain. (like buzzsumo does)
- Automation of social media posts via keywords or domain. There you can add many rules and find content that fits perfectly with my sites.
- Possibility to connect the medium blog

Cons

- Post to a Facebook group is not possible at the moment because of Facebook's API changes. Hope Facebook makes that possible again.
