What is CoSchedule?

CoSchedule is the all-in-one editorial calendar for marketers to plan, publish, and execute their entire marketing strategy. Learn more here.

How does the CoSchedule plug-in work?

CoSchedule synchronizes your WordPress posts, 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.

How do I get CoSchedule?

After you sign up for an account at CoSchedule, you can connect your WordPress blog to your CoSchedule account.

How much does CoSchedule cost?

CoSchedule has several subscription plans to choose from, starting at $40/month. Choose the right plan for you + your team.

Reviews

Not great!

For $50.00/month you wouldn’t think a plugin would have so many issues on a consistent basis! We pay for this for a reason – to make our work easier! So when it’s not working correctly, which is a lot recently, it’s makes our work that much harder and especially when it happens without warning!
*I’m editing my review to one star. My plugin has stopped working completely and as the person who pays for it and the only admin on my account, I now have no permission to access my account when I go to settings and cannot access any social content at all on the website (after not being able to login at all yesterday). For $50 every month there definitely has to be something better and better customer support! It’s now a holiday weekend, so I’ll be manually scheduling MANY posts over the next 3 days instead of saving the time I thought I would be. They charge more than twice what we were paying before with twice as many issues. Save yoursefl the hassle and look into a different social scheduler!

CoSchedule Is a Life- and Time-Saver!

CoSchedule is the best thing that’s happened to me and my freelance business in a long time! Although I have two part-time assistants, I am basically in charge of everything for my suite of companies, including marketing project management and social media marketing. The CoSchedule WordPress plugin works like a charm, helping us post and manage our WordPress blog and calendar with seamless integration. It is easy to install and allows for immediate integration between my WordPress account and my CoSchedule account. “Love Button!”

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!

Best Solution for Managing Posts & Social Media

I’ve been searching for an all-in-one solution for managing my Posting Calendar & Social Media, so I tried CoSchedule. I’ve been using it for 2 months & couldn’t be happier. It really shines with its visual drag/drop calendar. Plus, it’s ability to create & manage Social Media Campaigns has saved me a ton of time with my paid projects.
