Reasons for choosing Nelio

Take a look at the top 6 reasons for choosing Nelio Content:

#1. Editorial Calendar—All You Need, at a Glance

The Editorial Calendar is one of the most powerful tools included in Nelio Content. It offers a unified view of absolutely all your content (that is, posts, social messages, and tasks). It’s also the easiest way to create new content and reschedule your posts and social messages, simply by dragging-and-dropping them.

#2. Social Networks—Schedule and Promote Your Content Automatically

Most social plugins will automatically share the title and permalink of your post when it’s published. Nelio Content goes one step further and automatically generates multiple social publications so that your post is effectively promoted on social media. With Social Automations, Nelio Content will extract the most relevant sentences of your copy and create a marketing strategy that will drive more visitors to your blog. Share your content easily on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Instagram, Google My Business, and Pinterest.

#3. Analytics—Measure Your Performance

Discover your best content and continue promoting it. Nelio Content integrates the relevant metrics from your Google Analytics and social media accounts and helps you to re-promote the content that works best.

#4. Content Assistant—We Take Care of the Details

Tagging content properly, using images to illustrate your ideas, linking old posts in your blog to build a strong internal link structure, or linking to other blogs to offer different views on a subject are all examples of how you can create beautiful content. Nelio Content analyzes the content of your posts and recommends the actions you may take to improve its quality.

#5. Teams—You’ll Never Work Alone

Nelio Content is a multi-user plugin that makes it easy to work with your team. The plugin offers the right tools to each user at each moment based on their context and WordPress role.

#6. Advanced Functionalities—There’s More than You Think

Nelio Content includes a ton of beautiful features aimed at making your life easier. Suggested references, editorial comments, tasks, external featured images… download the plugin and discover them all!

Why do I need Nelio Content?

If you publish content with WordPress, Nelio Content will save you work organizing everything in a more efficient way thanks to the integrated editorial calendar. In addition, you can promote your posts on social networks effortlessly and without leaving WordPress.

What are Social Automations?

Social Automations is the most powerful feature included in Nelio Content. After writing a new post, Nelio Content will automatically analyze its copy and extract the most relevant sentences to generate a set of messages that will be shared on your social media when the post is published and afterwards. This feature is way more powerful than basic Social Templates, because the generated messages are crafted using the unique content of the post being shared. Moreover, Nelio Content is even capable of mentioning other Twitter users in your tweets to maximize the chances of being retweeted and, therefore, reaching a broader audience.

I’ve Connected my Social Profiles but Nelio Content Doesn’t Share Any Messages. Why?

First of all, make sure you’ve enabled Social Automations on one or more social accounts. Then, after you’ve written a new post, scroll down to the Social Media box and click on the Create Social Messages Automatically button. This will generate a marketing timeline to promote your post on your social accounts when the post is published and afterwards. If you don’t create those messages, Nelio Content won’t publish anything. This solution allows you to review the content that will be automatically shared before it actually happens.

Keep in mind automations are only available to subscribers of Nelio Content Premium. If you’re using the free version of Nelio Content, only one message per profile and post will be shared upon post’s publication.

Do I need a subscription to use Nelio Content?

No, you don’t. Nelio Content includes a completely free version that you can use in all your websites.

What’s included in the free version of Nelio Content?

The free version of Nelio Content includes the following features:

  • 1 social profile per network
  • Compatibility with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Tumblr, Google My Business, and Pinterest
  • Promotion of new blog posts on your social networks upon publication
  • Fully-fledged editorial calendar
  • Content quality control
  • Suggested reference management
  • Built-in analytics
  • External featured images

What do I get if I subscribe to your service?

A lot of things:

  • Social Automations
  • Auto-Reshare Old Content
  • Editorial Comments
  • Editorial Tasks
  • Team Support
  • and more!

See our pricing page for an up-to-date list of all our premium features.

Can I change my plan later?

Sure, you can do it whenever you want. And if you have some specific needs that none of our plans satisfy, just let us know and we’ll be happy to help you!

Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

Yes, you can cancel your subscription at any time. You can do it from the WordPress Dashboard or contacting us directly.

Of course they have to limit the functions of the free plugin version, but that is totally fine and allows you to at least schedule some social messages. It's a bit buggy here and there and I always wait for the second or third update version due to a lot of bugs and errors, but recently found out that their service is really great!
Bellissimo plugin,funziona bene e fa quello che promette in maniera egregia. Poi comincia a non postare tutti i post impostati. Disinstallato se il prezzo fosse più contenuto e una volta pagata la cifra tutto funzionasse sarebbe proprio quello che cercavo.
Nelio Content is a serious and worth checking plugin when it comes social media handling. This rating regards the free version of this plugin. I am skipping the part of outlining the plugin functionalities, since a detailed description is already provided by the developers. It is important though to highlight the quality of both the functionalities as well as the support which are not only offered for free but also exceed the typical expectations. Great effort is invested by committed and polite people in this project, which should be recognized.
