Excellent post, I’ve been a long-standing fan of your content! Thank you!

Hi Ian, 

What a great share! I did not know much about ContentCal, but some of my friends were using it sometime back and they recommended it to me as well. At the time, I thought of trying it, but I never really did. After reading your post, I was reminded of this tool, and I gained several insights that will help me decide better. Thanks a lot for sharing this amazing review. I learned a lot from it, and I think I will be checking out this tool soon.

I’m currently using SocialPilot, what extra features does your platform have?
Look forward to your comments

One that helps with engagement, one that gives better reporting and analytics. Perhaps a listening tool as well. But ContentCal has been growing in functionality, and now that it has built-in analytics, it may be closer to an all-in-one tool now.

Well, I have never used ContentCal to post my content on all Social Media platform from one place. I have used Buffer, Hootsuite, Tailwind and they all are also good and nice platform to post your content on all social media from one place.


Great write up! I plan on using the free version for now then upgrading once my business gets up to that point. What do you recommend as a secondary tool for a solopreneur who is watching his budget as far as a service that helps with tracking replies and responding to posts?


Thanks for this “easy-to-read-and-understand” review,,, I’m so techno-phobic but am having to drag myself into the 21st century for the benefit of my business,,, and someone put me into Content Cal so your frank review has been of huge benefit,,, many thanks sharon

Hi Ian,

I am currently using Hotsuite, but this Contentcal is looking great,and there are some cool stuff in this tool I will surely use it.

Tonia Miller

Thanks for the comment, Edward. Let us know how you like Contentcal!

The aspect I’m not seeing is finding content – I don’t think contentcal has this curating feature which smarterqueue and meet edgar do. I do like the sound of how they’re doing things but the UI put me off as did the lack of evergreen functionality. Glad to be corrected though – do you know anything about these aspects?

Andy Lambert

Thanks for your question Sue and great reply Ian. We’ve got some exciting new evergreen functionality coming in the next few weeks, but it’s an area that we are thinking about very carefully given the latest updates to Twitter’s terms of service (re-posting of Tweets is now banned) which will really impact the way SmarterQueue and MeetEdgar work. MeetEdgar are already busy working on a new solution to address this. Never a dull moment in social! That said, the UI is usually the reason people move to us as it feels the most intuitive way to manage social, but I can understand it’s not for everyone. 🙂


I am currently using Hootsuite, but this ContentCal is attractive, the features are good and I think I must try it out next month


First time I am visiting this blog. I found so many entertaining stuff in this blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the excellent work

I think ContentCal could be a lifesaver for me!! I currently use AirTable for planning and coordinating blog posts, social media posts.

Hi Ian,

Hey Donna, so sorry for the slow response, always happy to run your through it. Would be great to get your thoughts! Andy


Even though I’m a solopreneur, I think ContentCal could be a life saver for me!! I currently use AirTable for planning and coordinating blog posts, social media posts, and product management. It has advantages as a data base, like linking info, but not the sophistication I’m seeing, here, for ContentCal in the actual planning and calendar perspective. I’m definitely going to give it a try!

Andy Lambert

Thanks so much Elizabeth, always happy to help and let us know how we can improve in any way.


Would you advise the free trial? Not sure the product is for us, but want to try.
