What is CoSchedule?

CoSchedule is a content marketing editorial calendar that integrates with your WordPress blog using a WordPress plugin.

It helps you visualize and plan your blog content with drag-and-drop ease. You can create and publish customized messages for your social networks for each blog post. Posts are easily moved, and social messages attached to those posts move with them. You can collaborate with your writing team and delegate tasks surrounding your blog posts. Learn more here.

How does CoSchedule work?

After you sign up for an account at CoSchedule.com, you can connect your WordPress blog to your CoSchedule account. You will then have access to the calendar and team features at CoSchedule.com.

CoSchedule synchronizes your WordPress post, author, and category information to its servers, but all of your WordPress data remains in WordPress. CoSchedule will update that WordPress data as you direct, but the data always remains in WordPress. Social messages, tasks, comments, team members, and other data you create in CoSchedule will be stored on CoSchedule’s servers, and never in WordPress.

Why do I need CoSchedule?

Managing a team blog or planning your own blog’s content marketing is not easy inside of WordPress.

CoSchedule is an all-in-one editorial calendar that makes it easier to create, move, and manage your blog posts and stay ahead of your plan. It allows for WordPress blogging team collaboration without needing extra outside tools and logins, reducing the time and unnecessary complexity required to plan your blog’s content marketing program. The lightweight plugin allows CoSchedule to work without unnecessary burden on WordPress, which is different that WordPress-oriented plugins like Edit Flow. You can read more here.

How do I use CoSchedule?

Once you have the plugin installed, you can follow instructions found here that will help you get maximum use out of your CoSchedule account.

How much does CoSchedule cost?

We charge a monthly fee for CoSchedule because we provide an ongoing service that publishes your blog posts and social media messages using a robust API. CoSchedule has several subscription plans to choose from, starting at only $15/month. It is fully integrated with WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, Buffer, and Tumblr. Find the right calendar plan for you!

Reviews

More than just social media scheduling

CoSchedule is a brilliant social media scheduling tool that easily allows you to use templates to get everything done. But it is also a lot more than that – it is a way of organising all the elements of your blog and business including product launches, newsletters, podcasts and more. With the range of templates available and the ability to add ReQueue to make sure you always have something being sent to social media, it is a must-have tool for me. And the app integration with WordPress means you don’t need to leave your blog to schedule social media and can view your entire calendar right there in your website. Would definitely recommend!

CoSchedule is the Holy Grail for Social Media!

I have tried other social media schedulers and there is none to compare with CoSchedule! It is easy to use and will save you tons of time in getting your message out. Besides, you need to get back to writing. It’s easy to set up, easy to learn and easy to use. You simply must check this out!
