While this topic is outside the realm of what I normally talk about on Healthologie, CoSchedule has been a huge time saver for me, and I believe it could be for you too, especially if you have a WordPress website. If you have a blog or a business, this blog is for you…if not, please skip it and find some good recipes and DIY projects!
It has always been difficult for me to keep on top of scheduling social media. I know it is important, but with a business to run, content and images to produce, not to mention family time and the responsibilities you have as a mom and wife, social media publishing just always seemed to get lost.
Even when I managed social media for clients, I would delegate to my employee because it seemed overwhelming to me. There are a lot of good products out there, and I had tried them, but they just didn’t fit me or were too complicated for me to use regularly. Enter CoSchedule.
CoSchedule changed everything for me. I now can schedule all of my blog posts with social media at the same time. It has saved me so much time and energy. I don’t have to think about it anymore. As a very visual person, it helps me to see my social media marketing strategy in a timeline fashion.
They even have all kinds of helpful graphics and information to help you know when to schedule your posts (and how often on what social media channels to reschedule your content and get more clicks.)
I also love that I can drag and drop items on my calendar. For instance, if I schedule too many posts at a certain time, then I can drag it over to a day that is less full. This also saves a lot of time because I don’t have to go into each post and change things around.
Again, as a very visual person, it helps me to see the areas I need to fill in. I LOVE CoSchedule’s calendar feature. I can even color code the types of posts. For instance, I make quote posts teal, blog posts blue, and sharing other people’s posts green. It shows the shares associated with each post, so you can see what is working and what isn’t at a glance.
Since for the most part I am a one person show at this time, there are lots of cool features that I don’t use…yet. But I know that in the future I will when I am working with other people and as this site expands. You can set up Tasks and assign them to different members of your team, which I think is really cool and helpful.
There is also a headline grader and all sorts of other cool features, all very reasonably priced for the time it saves you. And even more than that, it is making me effective at what I do.
