CoSchedule | Loren’s Blogging Secret

coschedule

Say hello to my blogging secret – CoSchedule.

I was first introduced to CoSchedule November 2014.  I eagerly signed up for the free 14 day trial and scheduled out blog posts and social media.  And then I got lazy with blogging and seriously dropped the ball.

Then Creative at Heart happened.  And the fire was lit under me to blog and blog consistently.  I teach full and i’m pursuing this dream of mine full time.  I do not have free time to sit in front of my computer and constantly post to social media.

This is where CoSchedule comes strutting through the door like a tall glass of ice cold water.  Hello Handsome!  Thanks for rescuing this damsel in distress.

I pre-blog.  Which means that i’m not writing my posts the day before, the night before, or even the day of.  Most of my posts are three, four, sometimes five weeks out from being published.  Thanks to CoSchedule, I can schedule all my social media posts and forget about it.  Well, kind of forget about it.  I’m always checking my numbers to see how many hits my blog has received that day.

Some of the features that I LOVE about CoSchedule

  • It has a WordPress Plugin so I can schedule all my posts directly in WordPress.  Or I can go to CoSchedule’s site and do all my browsing and scheduling.  I typically stay right in WordPress because it’s more convenient.

  • CoSchedule integrates with all the big social media – Facebook, Twitter, Google+ (Which helps with your SEO, so if you don’t have Google+, you need to get it) and now Pinterest!  Man how I can’t wait to schedule my pins directly from my BLOG! How cool is that?!  Talk about streamlining the process!!
  • Speaking of scheduling posts – it’s an absolute BREEZE.  I can schedule multiple posts for the day of publish, the day after, a week after, a month after, and a custom date.  This allows new and old readers to visit a blog post and allows me to easily market important content

  • Speaking of scheduling out older content – I LOVE being able to schedule a couple’s engagement session for the day of their wedding.  The morning of weddings are often time hectic as I like to lay in bed to rest a little longer then I should.  Therefore, I often find myself running around my house with my head cut off.  Most of the time I forget to post something on Facebook.  Well with CoSchedule, I no longer have to worry about that.

  • CoSchedule’s calendar also allows you to create brand new content IN the calendar.

  • I can see social media analytics.  Both on my dashboard, and in a post.  This allows me to see my most popular posts, and how others are interacting with the content.  Are there a lot of comments, likes, pins?  I can see ALL of that once the post is published!

    I use several prescheduling programs but haven’t heard of this one yet. It looks awesome! I’m off to do some more research. Thanks for sharing!

  5. […] While you’re out of the office, do you plan on having your social media quiet, as well?  If not, plan content ahead of time so you can truly unplug. You can schedule your instagram posts with sites like Planoly or Later.  My favorite way to schedule blog posts to post to Facebook is using CoSchedule.  Here’s a blog post I wrote about how I use CoSchedule.   […]
