You’ve seen it haven’t you? – All of those bloggers posting amazing content all day long in the form of Facebook posts and Tweets. You know they have children, jobs, full lives and yet they always seem to manage to contribute to social media. It’s maddening! Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? Wrong. I figured it out and I am going to share The Secret to Making the Most of Social Media.
I discovered a plugin / web application called CoSchedule after I’d seen it utilized by a few blogs I follow. I figured after seeing it so many times, I must surely be missing out on something and I dove right in. Now I completely understand the hype and I am totally on board. Check out this video first because it puts into words and fantastic visual how powerful this application is, better than I ever could.
On a personal note, this application has really helped me visualize my social media. When I actually remember to use it (which is all on me haha) it works. Seriously… it really does work. During the times I used it, my clicks in and blog readership were way, way up. Once I stopped, the traffic slowed back down. This is because the application was helping me maximize my presence on social media.
You posted something at 9am but not again until 7pm that day because you have a full time job? No problem. This helps you schedule some social media in between. Share an old post, something funny you read elsewhere, pictures of your cats, pictures of someone else’s cats. It lets you customize your posts and it doesn’t have to be content just about you.
Here’s some great key points of what CoSchedule can do!
- Drag-And-Drop Editorial Calendar
- Schedule Social Media While You Blog
- Save Time, Grow Traffic
- Easily Re-Schedule Old Blog Content
- Lightweight WordPress Plugin
- Automated Social Publishing
- Simple Team Communication
- All-In-One Publishing Solution
- No More WordPress Hackin
- WordPress is not required!!!
What I love is that although I highly recommend WordPress to bloggers of all types, this application does not require it. If you use blogger, you can still use this! The web application works exactly the same and it’s just as simple to use. Connect your blog to your Twitter, Facebook, Facebook Fan Page, Tumblr, LinkedIn and Google+ accounts easily and send your posts flying across social media all at once or whenever you schedule them!
The best part? There’s a FREE TRIAL and the team over at CoSchedule give you so, so much opportunity to really get a feel for their product before you ever have to spend a dime. There’s a referral system and ways of getting a % off of your annual fee – which is what I am doing right now by telling you all about them! I’ve tried CoSchedule and it made a believer out of me. I’m sharing it with you in hopes that you will try it, like it and we can all succeed with it… while earning myself a little discount.
So what are you waiting for? Try CoSchedule Today!
