Graphic- How to Automate Your Blog to Save Time and Money
How to Put Your Blog On Autopilot to Save Time and Money

I am a type-A personality by nature. I like to know exactly what is going on, and have a plan for everything and a place to see it all in action. 

I have tried all kinds of apps, software, tutorials, spreadsheets, calendars, planners and everything under the sun.

But as a blogger, I found that the tools that I had been using weren’t very effective for all the extra stuff that I had to include like writing and organizing blog posts, marketing those posts and social media management.

Then one day I came across a tool that had everything I needed in one place! No more jumping back and forth between planners and auto-schedulers. 

ENTER COSCHEDULE… Wahoooooooo!

Using CoSchedule to Automate Your Daily Blogging Tasks

If you are anything like me, and you have been struggling to find something that can help you stay on track of your blog posts, social media strategy and marketing campaigns, this is the ticket!

Organize All Your Blog, Social Media and Email Promotions in ONE Place

CoSchedule can literally do it all. I mean everything. It’s like having your own personal assistant on one page. For me, time is money and this scheduler saves me both. That, and- I can stop pulling out my already fine hair!

At one point, I actually had three paper systems going to keep track as well as two online apps just for organization. Does that even count as organized?? Thinking about it now, it sounds more like CHAOS. 

Organize and Automate Your Schedule 

I completely eliminated the endless email threads, piles of sticky notes, and the dozen and half moving pieces I was using. Doing this allows me to focus on the real work of writing top-notch content AND growing my audience.

Now my thoughts, drafts and posts are all organized in one, easy to use space.

I can also apply task lists to each of my workflows to keep me on schedule with whatever I am doing. CoSchedule has even created three preformed lists for blog posts, email marketing, and social promotion just to get you started so you won’t miss a deadline!

Seamless Workflows From Start To Finish

You can sync all your favorite tools and social platforms into one place, so you can focus on driving traffic to your blog (not jumping from one tool to the next). This is such a cool feature.

It totally brings the platform to WordPress so that you can use it right in your dashboard. The two accounts sync so when you make changes or updates in one, the other is automatically updated. 

CoSchedule even integrates with Google Analytics, Evernote, Google Docs, MailChimp, Zapier, and more!

Simple to Use Social Media Scheduling

Eliminate the guesswork In social scheduling. With so much competition, it’s tough to get through the noise. CoSchedule’s Best Time Scheduling spaces out messages for maximum coverage, helping to get the most social engagement out of every post.

Schedule Your Calendar on Autopilot

Schedule dozens of social media messages in bulk. Create a predefined social sharing plan to reuse again and again, so you can focus on creating exceptional content, not manually filling in your social queue. 

This was especially helpful for my Facebook group, Blogging Babes Collective, where there is a recurring theme each day of the week. All I needed to do was copy, drag and drop the post into each day. I scheduled out a whole month’s worth of posts in only 10 minutes!

Connects with all the major social media channels including Facebook (Groups too!), Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr

Reschedule Recurring and Evergreen Content

Automatically Re-Use Your Best Social Messages without the manual work. ReQueue fills in the gaps of your daily schedule, not manual guesses! It takes into account your entire social schedule, uses Best Time scheduling to promote your messages at the most optimal times and finds the gaps in your schedule (so you don’t have to).

Again.. TIME=MONEY.. Let’s save it and go to Mexico. 

Instantly share content from anywhere on the web with a  browser extension

Curate and share content with followers without ever leaving the browser. No more copy/paste commands or switching from one tab to the next!

This feature is so simple to use! I can go into a site like Medium and pull up content that I think my readers will enjoy. Then I simply click the installed browser extension and the content is pulled into a window. Here, I can choose the social sites I would like to share the content to and an option to choose a specific or best time schedule. 

CoSchedule is perfect for filling up gaps in my calendar and giving my audience more value, which I am always striving to do.

Detailed Analytics

CoSchedule comes with some really great analytics for all your connected social profiles. This allows you to track your social performance across multiple profiles so you know what’s working (and what isn’t), so that you can make changes as you go.

Save Time by Finding Your Social Media Analytics in One Place

You won’t have to guess what will (or will not) resonate with your audience.

You can easily use the social network reports to check top messages AND create future content you know your audience will love and respond to.

Bonus Free Tools

Headline analyzer

This is such a cool tool! (I know… I’m a poet lol). I found this while creeping around the CoSchedule site and it has been absolutely incredible. You can add your title and it will analyze it based on the words that you have used and gives you a score between 0-100. 

If you purchase the app, it will even include the headline analyzer right in your WordPress so that you can choose the best one before posting!

Email subject line tester

Are your email open rates really low? Try CoScheuler’s free email subject line tester that works similar to the headline analyzer to give you a personalized score.
