Reasons why I love CoSchedule

Reasons why I love CoSchedule

My biggest complaint a few years ago was this, “Why can’t I find one Social Media Platform that incorporates your blog posts to rule them all.” Sounds cheesy when I say it out loud, but its true. It’s hard enough working a full-time job, keeping house, and writing full time as well. Yes, yes, I write full time. Or I should say I did. I’m involved in a huge transition at the day job, and because I’m part of that group I can no longer devote the amount of time I used to when it comes to the written word.

But there’s still hope for me.

I have a routine, and with the help of CoSchedule, I’m better able to manage my time. This platform has everything. I know some people love HootSuite, and I’m no stranger to it, as I’ve used it in the past. But CoSchedule is user-friendly and intuitive.  I schedule all my posts and blog posts two. (Multiple Blogs) I currently have my account connected to 13 Social Profiles and 2 Blogs. Those social platforms include both my facebook profile. 3 Facebook Pages 3 Instagram profiles, 3 Facebook Groups I manage, and my tumblr account. But you can add more. Many more. You can even have multiple calendars. Add team members and so much more.

But I digress.

Some of my readers ask me how am I on Social Media all the time and still write and work. The answer to that question is, I’m not. Actually, I’m not really on that much at all anymore. I do respond to posts when there are comments. (Albeit, I may be a day or two or even three late) but I do try and respond as time permits. There is only one of me, but so many platforms to choose from. I never know really which one I should hit up first. But with CoSchedule I don’t have to be concerned. I tag and hit up all the ones I want.

You can even add your Google+ profiles using Buffer.  The main thing to remember is that you can Organize ALL your blog + social + email promotion in ONE place. Did I forget to mention email promotion… See, fabulous too! And really is a ONE STOP SHOP!  You can eliminate the endless email threads, piles of sticky notes, and the dozen and half moving pieces. And focus on what’s really important to you. For me, it’s growing my audience and of course WRITING!

You can build a Seamless workflow from beginning to end. Sync all your favorite tools and social platforms into one place. This is a great tool for  content marketing folks, (Hence what I like to call PA’s.) Becuase all your marketing is kicked off from one location.  *You can only post in FB Groups you manage* So if you’re posting to different groups, this tool won’t help, but it can organize the content you wish to share in one location and all you need to do is copy, paste, and post.

Another fancy smancy tool I enjoy is the Best Time Scheduling Spaces. It does it for you. CoSchedule knows when and what time to post and on what SM platform. (Removes all that guesswork).

You can also automatically re-use your best messages without having to redo it all over again using the ReQue feature. It fills in the gaps in your daily schedule (with intelligence). It takes into account your entire social schedule, uses BEST Time Scheduling to promote your messages at the most optimal times + finds the gaps in your schedule so you don’t have to.

Are you sold yet? Well, you should be. Best of all you can try it for free and see if it’s the tool for you! I know its the tool for me!

Late Night: Did You Know

Late Night: Did You Know

It’s late and I’m up researching for a story I have yet to start yet. But when it hits, it hits. I’ve gotten better at putting items in the vault, but only after I grab the piece in my head. Otherwise, I’ll totally forget it. Then I set a reminder for the vault to pop back up in three months. It’s how I decide what new project I want to infuse into my other continuing projects.

Tonight I was interested in Cuneiform.

Did you know, cuneiform is not a language? It’s made up of 600-1000 characters to write words. (Source) History Extra. You can see the full post here. Cuneiform is made of up two languages, Sumerian and Akkadian. I’d always thought it was a language, but it’s not. It’s a writing system. GO FIGURE!

 

 

 

Random Acts of Writing

Random Acts of Writing

There is so much to say about writing randomly. I do it all the time. I have tons, and I mean tons of notebooks, sticky-notes, and well, paper. Some might even say I’m a bit crazy with all the things I write down. But today started off as any other day. I woke up, (I’m on vacation so score there) and I decided to sit down at my computer and get my writing on. *What you don’t know is that it’s really Tuesday night, and not Wednesday morning* which is when this post will go live. But that’s a different issue altogether right? Right.

I was talking about random acts of writing. Well, I’m taking a marketing class right now, and one of the things it talks about is planning a content schedule that will crush your goals. Do I want to crush my goals? Hells yeah! I have this template and it says publish twice, two weeks apart to get started, and then of course, build momentum from there. If you haven’t figured it out yet, this post is a random act of writing, and if you read this. KUDOS to you! I’m testing out my mad marketing skills and I’m wondering how many people have read this post? Laughed, or thought, “geesh, I just wasted x amount of time reading gobbly gook.

Thanks for reading my gobbly gook!
