See how contentstudio stacks up against the competition
With ContentStudio, you can organise all your brands, projects and/or clients with separate workspaces; assign the relevant team, connect brand specific social accounts, create specialized news feeds and avoid cluttering and confusion. Connect brand specific social accounts and blog sites, customize your subscription package to suit your requirements and meet with the ever dynamic market demands at menial costs.
You do not get Social Media Analytics with Buffer plans, it is a separately charged feature. As a fundamental for marketing, ContentStudio provides this feature for no additional cost. So generate those KPI’s, white-label your reports for your clients and use our social inbox to keep engaged with viewers. Connect with your audience from various platforms all from one place, profile your visitors into custom groups, and assign team members to manage conversations. ContentStudio gives you maximum control of your channels, with detailed statistics.
You can reduce your workloads greatly with ContentStudio. With Content Automation, you can design recipes that make ContentStudio search for curated Content from over 4 million directories for your Blogs or Social Accounts. After that you just need to set a schedule for the automation and save it. Now your recipe will find your specified content from all over the web and publish it to your accounts.
Giving team members essential tasks keeps a group synchronised and your work refined; ContentStudio gives you a fully stacked toolbox for this. Ensure each of your brands have their own optimised crew by enlisting members to each workspace. You can also add your clients as approvers for your work, whether they have an account or not, saving you time and ensuring that your content meets their standards. An integrated approval workflow means that all stakeholders(including the client) can review the planned content before publishing.
You can rely on ContentStudio to find the most suitable content for your channels. Using Content Discovery, find the best trending articles on the internet in a variety of different categories. You can also curate a topic just for you that contains exact details of the content you need using and, or, not operations, domain search, language, country, and more. You can also get SEO ratings for your blog posts using an integrated Yoast SEO when composing. Plan and create customized schedules that suit your accounts so that all your content is published to the right channel at the right time.
With ContentStudio, your clients and work will be organised with each client having a specified team working with them using workspaces. As an alternative to buffer, you can manage your team and work for each client by tagging/assigning tasks to your teams, while also ensuring team coordination with live comments on assigned tasks. Superior management and organisation for all your needs with ContentStudio as your Buffer Alternative.
While both ContentStudio and Buffer cost the same at $99/month, going for an annual subscription reduces the monthly cost for ContentStudio to $79/month while Buffer goes down to $85/month.
ContentStudio allows an unlimited amount of posts to be queued. Not only that, ContentStudio has designed an interactive planner with features to simplify handling your schedule. Being a Buffer Alternative, ContentStudio also offers you analytics without any hidden charges as your right to your data. You are also given access to our Content Automation feature that keeps your work on autopilot mode using powerful recipes.
If you already have a content marketing specialist and only need a simple and basic app from which your specialist manages 3 of your accounts for free, then buffer is also an interesting option.
However, buffer does not give you additional features without a price tag. If you want an analysis or a report of how your accounts are performing on every platform you need to make a seperate surcharge of $35/month. If you want to white label your reports as your own that comes to a total of $50/month.
If you want to queue more than 10 posts you need to upgrade your price plan to a higher one. If you have more than 3 social channels you need to subscribe to a more expensive plan.
While these features add on to a higher monthly rate, you are still bottlenecked with missing features that would otherwise reduce and simplify your workload greatly.

Before: Wasted time by sharing content manually
Automating social channels using the filtering system is phenomenal. It takes all the hard work out of managing social media profiles and does a great job of recommending content to publish.

Before: Used multiple tools for social media marketing
Signed up to ContentStudio a few months back, and haven’t stopped using it since! With the amazing new updates being pushed out regularly, it’s the ideal tool for managing your social sharing, content curation, social media campaigns and even blogging. The discovery feature is by far one of the best features, stay up-to-date and schedule content directly from pre-suggested trending content, custom topics and RSS feeds. ContentStudio is great!

Before: Had problems getting content approved from team/client
Before ContentStudio, we had trouble getting content approved from clients. We had to send spreadsheets and the client wasn't able to see the exact look of the post and they often missed to reply back and we had to chase them. Now, they get notifications from ContentStudio whenever an approval is required and they can also see all of the activity and posts without even asking us. Kudos to the CS team for building an amazing tool.
