Have you ever wished that you could put your blog on automatic? So it will post to your social media periodically and so you can set it and go on to your next project? Like when you start the dishwasher and leave, it takes care of itself. How about if you could do that with blog posts? Shoot out posts to your social media from a post that you wrote a long time ago, that you had great traffic to, but disappeared into your archives. How would it be to refresh that post, maybe with a new banner or pictures and generate more traffic, wouldn’t that be great?
If you run a business, blog or run a website I have something I think you will like and streamline the process of marketing and promoting your content, old or new.
You can start out on one day and then schedule posts to be shared out over a period of weeks a month or even as far out as you want. Its that easy, and I have been using Co-Schedule for over a year and find it to be well worth the monthly fee. It is a great time saver to have my blog on autopilot!
Here’s a view of the Co-Schedule Calendar
So basicly it is an editorial calendar that you schedule your post in advance and is great if you were hosting, say, a giveaway to be shared out to Twitter, G+, Facebook or other social media that you add in settings when you set up Co-Schedule. As I mentioned you can go back to your archives and share that popular recipe before the 4th of July. You could actually set it now and it would be shared the end of June, how cool is that feature, easy peasy and dont we like that. Or you have a fun project you created for a holiday, some spring or summer wreaths, you could set those on autopilot and they would be shared on the date you set. It is really fun to be able to keep the blog in motion with these capabilities and drive traffic.
Below is a picture of how you edit in Co-Schedule,
The first editorial calendar was just that, where I stored posts I wanted to publish.
But now with Co-Schedule I can do so many other functions.
Once the post is published, it lets you connect various social media accounts like your blog’s Facebook page, Twitter account, Google+, Tumbler, etc. So once they are connected you can pr-schedule posts to the various social media and Co-Schedule where it will post them at their scheduled time.
So in the picture above I have scheduled a post choosing Facebook as my social media, set the date and time I wanted to share, written a short statement and chose the photo I wanted to be shared when published. One of the reasons I chose Co-Schedule was because of the social media aspects so that I could write my posts and schedule several Tweets when I finish my post or in a week or a month with a refresher, even when I am not at my computer!
Co-Schedule is the only program I use to re share my posts out and helps to have this in one central location as it is embedded into your blog, you do not go offsite to login to use these services.
And you can change the colors of the calendar, integrate bit.ly, google analytics and google calendar with CoSchedule. And instead of the “Click To Tweet” program, Co-Schedule will set those up for you as well.
