So many social networking sites exist now, if you want to keep ahead, plan, and engage your audience, your status with social media may easily become “it’s complicated” without some kind of app to help you out. If you’re like me and blogging isn’t your primary job, it gets even harder to schedule ahead. That’s where CoSchedule steps in to make your life easier. With CoSchedule, if you own a self-hosted WordPress blog, you can integrate with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Tumblr.
What does this mean? Well, let me walk you through it.
The cool stuff happens when you start adding your social profiles.
What’s even cooler is that when you pay just $10 a month for your blog with CoSchedule, you get these additional bonuses. You can connect a Bitly account to shorten URLs instantly, get Google Analytic tracking right there in one place, and Custom Analytic Tracking. If you want them to send everything you’ve scheduled to your Google Calendar, they’ll do that for you too. It’s all synced up on CoSchedule!
Do you have Team Members that you work with on your blog?
So, what does the CoSchedule Calendar look like?
It would take quite a bit of time to schedule all of those social networking posts, but with CoSchedule, it took me no time. Why? Because I can select Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ all at once and set my message for the same thing, set the time period and date I want the message to go out, and forget about it. Once I know what I want to post, I can have the whole week set up at once. Then, I just set up times to engage with my audience so that I’m not just sending out posts without feedback.
With CoSchedule, I can also track how often my WordPress posts get shared across social media through time. I know which posts get more shares, which helps me see what my audience likes the most.
Finally, I know that if I want to save money on using this program, CoSchedule has a referral program.
Yes, you can get rewards for referring other people to use them, and it’s not hard to sing their praises, because they do what they do well. If you need help or support, they get back to you immediately. They let you know about any problems they know they’re having with their website so that you stay in the loop. You can even try out their program for free just for sending out messages through Facebook, Twitter, etc., for a certain number of weeks just because they want you to see how awesome they are. That’s how I got hooked!
Believe me, it’s worth it.
