Nelio Content WordPress Plugin Review- Editorial Calender And Social Media Automation For WordPress The Ultimate User Review

There are few plugins without which a WordPress website cannot work smoothly. Nelio Content is one such plugin. It is the only plugin completely dedicated to WordPress platform that combines:

Content Creation Editorial Calendar + Social Media Calendar + Social Media Autoposting

We have been using Nelio Content since October 2016 (From the early days of Nelio Content) In all the years of using WordPress, we have hardly seen any premium plugin adding so many great features in such a short span of time.

Today it is difficult to imagine managing our WordPress website without Nelio Content.


How “Nelio Content Plugin” increased our website traffic & social media presence 

The Ultimate Nelio Content Wordpress Plugin Review 

An Extensive In-depth Review of Services of “Nelio Content” after using it for some time. Please note that this is not an affiliate post. It’s a post that we chose to write to thank “Nelio Content” for providing an amazing product. This is purely a user based review. We are sharing it the hope that this will help other Online and WordPress Users. 


The importance of Nelio Content WordPress plugin in terms of Social Media

You might be in any profession. You might be a doctor, an engineer, a writer or a blogger.

But in order to have a good online presence, you need to take care of 3 points:

  1. A Website – that over a period of time can be used as a brand that stands for you. This is the place on the web where you publish contents and articles thereby building a following of readers related to your topic of choice. It’s a very powerful medium and has a great potential with time.
  2. Your Social Media Profile – As your website gets older and you gain more readers – you must slowly but steadily keep on increasing social media followers. The major social media profiles that you must target are – Facebook, Facebook Pages, Twitter, Linked In, Google Plus & Pinterest.
  3. Social Media Promotion – Ok! You have a website. You have also created a healthy number of social media followers. You are continuously publishing new contents and also have a mine of awesome old contents. Next job is to engage your social media audience by posting useful articles regularly. That will bring more referral traffic to your website.

All this sounds much easier than it really is. Time is very limited (around 9 working hours on average per day)  and within that time you have to do so many things to manage your WordPress website.

The Always Changing Social Media and

the Utility of Nelio Content Plugin

As our website keeps growing & gaining more users, it gets tougher for us to manage it. But it’s a tough situation, that can make you happy. Anybody who has a website dreams of having a high number of viewers. But with the growing numbers, you should also have the tools to publish new contents and also repost your old contents, regularly in front of your social media followers.

We are having 5 social media profiles with a healthy following. But it was getting very difficult to separately post contents in each social media profile multiple times every day.

The changes in the algorithm of facebook/twitter (which they say was done to improve the quality of the contents and also to optimize the news feed of users) resulted in a massive decrease in the Organic Reach. As a result, any post shared in a page is now reaching a very limited number of page fans. Out of 100, it is reaching around 5.

 In order to reach more audience, say 50 out of your 100 Fans, you would need to Purchase Promoted Post by spending some dollars. The more you pay, the more number of your existing fans will see your posts in their news feed.

But we are among those group of bloggers who do not make millions of revenue from their blog. So we simply do not have that much bank balance to spend thousands every week to buy promoted posts so that we could reach more of our fans. 

In such a scenario, the only other freeway we have is to keep sharing our contents to all our social media profile multiple times every day.


 We were looking for a Tool that can help us to do the following:

  1. A tool that will help us in organizing and planning contents not only for today but for next 3 months.
  2. A tool which can help us in storing some great ideas that we can later use to complete a great article.
  3. A tool that will instantly let us share posts to social media right after publishing an article.
  4. A tool that can automate the process of social promotion of our new as well as old contents. 
  5. A tool that will help us share more content and reach more audience than ever before – all on autopilot.

And we were finally able to find such a tool for our WordPress Site
