I’ve been a CoSchedule user for about two years now and I couldn’t do what I do without it! It not only saves me boatloads of time it will also increase your social media engagements, page views, and subscribers. That’s a lot of claims, I know! It’s an automated social media scheduling plugin and an editorial calendar all in one.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s a WordPress plugin that opens up your posts up for social media scheduling right inside without the need to go anywhere else. Picture this: you write an amazing piece of brilliant content and then you just scroll further down the page and you can schedule all of your social media posts right there inside of your post!
It integrates with all sorts of things besides your WorPress site. You can hook up 10 social media profiles including Pinterest, but also Evernote, Chrome, and Google Docs. There is a headline analyzer tool that makes choosing the best title a breeze.
Inside your CoSchedule dashboard which you can either get to from their site or your site, you will find not only your editorial calendar but also your top posts, how many times it’s been shared, what’s coming up and any tasks you have to do.
They are always adding brand new features and the latest one is called “templates”. The dictionary says that a template is a preset format for a document or file, used so that the format does not have to be recreated each time it is used. That’s exactly what CoSchedule does. It lets you create a pattern of social shares that you can use again and again. It takes me 15 minutes tops to schedule social media posts for a whole year! You read that correctly A WHOLE YEAR and longer if I wanted to.
My personal template shares my posts on the day of, the day after, the week after, a month after, and then once a month for the rest of the year. It is shared to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, Google+ and Tumblr and as I said earlier you can hook up to 10 social profiles. So that means you can have your personal page, your business page, as well as any Facebook groups that you own! With Pinterest, you can save to any boards that you have.
It doesn’t get any better than that! You’re probably saying, “I have to have that, but how much is it?” It’s not cheap, but there are ways to get it even cheaper! It’s $40 a month which when you consider how much time you save makes it more than worth it. Think about it for a minute. If you post 2 x a week and it saves you at least an hour for every post. That’s 8 to 10 hours every month. Your time is worth more than $4 or $5 an hour!
I said I was going to show you how to get it even cheaper than that, though! They have an awesome referral program which is what this post is all about. As you can see, I have CoSchedule ads on this site and I also have this handy dandy referral link and anyone that signs up gets me 10% off of my subscription costs. Get 10 people to sign up and your subscription is FREE! Write a post, like this one, and they will cut 50% off of your subscription price! Sign up and get a free trial to see if it’s something that could use!
Would I suggest CoSchedule if there wasn’t a referral program? ABSO-FREAKIN’-LUTELY! Why? Because of several reasons:
- It works!
- It’s many features and perks!
- Customer service that is out of this world!
- It has helped me double my pageviews!
- It’s brought a consistency to my social media that I was sorely lacking!
I love CoSchedule, I can’t say that enough and it is definitely one tool that I will NEVER do without! If you decide to try it out let me know what you think!
