I like the ability to create templates for tasks or for social promotion (for example, the social posts I want to do for every blog post), and then generate and tweak those social messages right within Wordpress as I edit my post. I also like that I can add a post to my Coschedule editorial calendar and it will be created in Wordpress.
I don't love the price tag. As a solopreneur with a new business, using Coschedule was only possible for me through their referral program. Worth it? Yes, but that doesn't mean your business can afford it. There are other options out there that aren't so much to swallow.
I get it. Running a blog business seems to be one monthly or yearly expense after another. But if you're like me, you don't have the time to do everything manually. I have a full-time day job. If I do all the manual work on my site and social media, I won't have any time for the work I love that made me start this business. I won't be able to do the strategic things to make the business grow.
On the other hand, if I leave out the social media strategy, the business won't grow. So I figured that paying $49/month (cheaper if you can pay annually!) is much, much cheaper than hiring a virtual assistant. And, I mentioned CoSchedule's great referral program above! Right now (August 2018), if you write a review post you can get 50% off for a year. You will also get 10% off for each person you refer.
If you think you might be able to use CoSchedule to grow your business, sign up for the free 14-day trial to test it out. To make the best use of your time, I've made a Quick-Start Guide to CoSchedule for Bloggers. You can access it for FREE along with a more detailed review at https://www.realworldbiblestudy.com/delegate-use-coschedule/.
Coschedule allows me to schedule content in advance and be "present" on social media when I wouldn't be able to. I don't have an assistant or a social media manager to take care of this critical part of my business manually. It just isn't an option.
