The plugin is NOT free.
It shouldn't be here.
Can anyone report them or something... I don't even wanna know if the tool is good or not. The way they put their PAID plugin on a FREE repository makes it a true scam.
For months I had been using paper-based hand-written calendars for planning my content. I was almost spending more time keeping them up to date and playing with them to try and improve the process.
Something had to change and Coschedule was that something, I was a little hesitant in the beginning, as it seemed like a big step, and thought maybe it might be a little difficult to get my head around. However, I was wrong, I had wordpress connected with Coschedule plus had watched the introduction videos, and was flying along with it in under an hour.
There are a couple of powerful features that made it really easy to play around with the publication schedule I had, and the social queue makes it so easy to prefer social media updates for new posts, without having to jump back and forth between two or three different tools.
Everything worked great from first install, and now running the calendar on two different blogs. Saves a lot of time and is set to see me being a lot more consistent in getting posts published on a regular schedule.
I just finished my 14 day trial, and in preparing to start paying for the service. It has definitely motivated me just by seeing my social media calendar unfold in front of me. I can see where I'm overloading my schedule on particular days, and I can see where I'm totally failing in social media on other days.
Then I can fix it with the drag-and-drop.
Even more so, I enjoy the fact that I am learning better techniques to engage people through social media and promote my business and my writing in my articles and more.
I agree with many of the other reviews, this is one of the easiest editorial calendar systems for WordPress. It can be used as a social media scheduling calendar as well, but this works best right now where it is connected to a WordPress article.
If you just want to schedule some messages to go out on twitter, it can be used for that but it's not one of its strengths. I suspect that could change in the future and I am looking forward to how this system evolves.
In the meantime, my followers have increased and my engagement has increased at a time of year when I normally see dips in all of these areas. :-)
I wasn't sure about the price at first but since they have a free trial, decided to give it a try. It's completely worth it. It's made scheduling my blog posts effortless and I haven't even made templates yet and those will make it even easier. I can schedule to share my posts hours, days, weeks, and even months ahead of time. I don't have any employees so I'm the only one able to make my business work and I was overwhelmed before coschedule.
Not only has it helped with my social media scheduling but with my my blog posts too. As soon as I fill out my calendar for the month I then enter it into coschedule, than all I need are my notes when I sit down to write.
They have also been very responsive to questions and emails and they have a set of video tutorials that walk you through everything.
If you are looking for something the help organize your work and sharing, give it a try.
Coschedule is the best editorial calendar I came accross and I couldn't go without it anymore.It saves me a lot of time scheduling my social media posts.
The social media templates made my live so much easier.
I can recommend it to everyone to give it a try and they have a 14 day free trial so I don't see any reason why you should not check it out.
I am an uber CoSchedule fan. Been using it now for two and a half weeks and I wonder how I managed without it. Excellent programming that does what it's supposed to AND looks good while doing it. Fantastic customer service - people who (get this) ACTUALLY RESPOND WITH HELP shortly after you request it. Truly an excellent product. :)
Not only is this the best marketing investment I've ever made, but it's also been a firm kick in the pants to get organized and streamline my content marketing strategy. Excellent work being done on this and I highly recommend it to serious bloggers and content marketers.
I finally found peace in my head and I can work very efficient now because of CoSchedule. I love that it has the ability to share among the social networks. Really saves me a lot of time! So I'm really glad with that. Also very glad with the color coding, so I can seperate the tasks and organize it even better!
The only thing I'm missing is an app for my tablet or smartphone! But I'm sure they will develop one any time soon!
it only lack an app, but they sad it's in the pipeline. hope it will come soon
I can not say enough about this plugin! it is the best blogging editorial plugin out there and I love how it is a one stop shop which solves so many issues. First it serves as a blogging editorial calendar right inside WordPress allowing you to designate tasks to your team, secondly it is also a marketing calendar allowing me to boost my social proof and automate my social media scheduling which in turns helps me increase my SEO. love it!
