Preguntas frecuentes

Por que necesito Nelio Content?

Se publicas contidos con WordPress, Nelio Content é o compañeiro que estabas a esperar. Con el poderás aforrar unha chea de tempo á hora de organizar o teu traballo grazas ao seu calendario editorial. Ademais, poderás programar as túas entradas nas redes sociais sen complicación e sen ter que saír de 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 in 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.

Is Nelio Content a paid plugin?

No. Nelio Content can be used completely for free using the version available at However, if you want to unlock its full potential, you’ll need to purchase a premium plan.

I run a small charity website for developers and I thought the free version of this plugin would be ideal as we only have a few social media channels and the occasional blog post. Worked fine for the first month then randomly stopped the auto social sharing feature which is the main purpose of the free plugin. Essentially, the free version no longer has a purpose. Plugin developer has now reserved the auto posting for pro version only.

Si creas contenido con WordPress y necesitas un plugin para poder difundir todo el contenido, nelio es el mejor. Si además tienes el plugin premium te ayudará todavía más, aunque en algunas ocasiones con el free ya te valga. Merece mucho la pena la inversión del plugin, a mi me ha ahorrado mucho tiempo. ¡¡Muchas gracias al equipo de Nelio Software!
