Tools for Growth: a review of CoSchedule

| 14 Comments

I struggle with social media.

I struggle a lot. I struggle to find the time and the brain space for it. I struggle to engage regularly. As an introvert, I struggle with the always-on nature of it.

I even struggle to put myself on there. To remember to tweet a post and let people know that I’ve got something to say. And I have a lot to say. I just struggle to let you all know.

About a month ago, I started to see people using CoSchedule. I first saw it on one of my favorite blogs, Finding Joy. The lovely Rachel Marie Martin had included a ‘click to tweet’ feature in her post and I couldn’t help but obsess over how brilliant that was. Because so often I want to tweet the brilliant words I read. And I don’t mind the copy and paste and adding quotes in Twitter. But to just click and share and tweet? Oh it’s just so awesome.

Then I started to see reviews of CoSchedule. Bloggers using it’s editorial calendar feature and loving it. Always on the lookout for tools that will help me be more productive and on top of things when it comes to scheduling and planning and writing, and, of course, sharing and promoting, I signed up for a free trial.

And now there is no turning back. My blogging now relies on CoSchedule.

Social Media Editorial Calendar For WordPress

CoSchedule is a drag-and-drop editorial calendar for WordPress that puts your blog posts and social media messages on the same schedule. I write a post and then I schedule it. And then I schedule all of the social media. Every tweet and Facebook post. I schedule them for days ahead. I compose my posts and messages and tweets and I add images. I don’t worry about what the link of the post will be when it publishes because CoSchedule takes care of that. And I do all of this from within a post. All on one screen, all right there.

The calendar functionality is also fantastic. I’ve searched for and never before really found a calender that I like, that lays out the weeks and month as I want to see them and makes it easy for me to schedule and reschedule and move things around. CoSchedule’s calendar is drag-and-drop. I move blog posts and social media messages around with ease, creating my editorial calendar and planning a month in advance if I want. This has become incredibly important this summer as I bring back Growing Together. At a glance, I can see exactly where each of my guest’s posts will be, preventing the ever-awkward double booking I’ve inadvertently done in the past.

If you are looking to get a little more planned and scheduled with your blogging, give CoSchedule a try. They offer a two-week free trial that you can extend by sharing your love for it on social media. Which, I guarantee, you’ll want to do!

  1. I think you sold me! I tend to like everything to be organic and in the moment, and you know what? That just gets me pressured and makes me take out my phone or run to my computer in the middle of fun.
    I’d love to have a better editorial calendar, and a better method of scheduling social media.

  2. I love that you use this. I don’t think I can justify a cost to my blogging right now, but the concept sounds incredible. Any easy way to tweet your words is good for me.
