There are a lot of tools out there that are supposed to help you to manage your social media calendar and blog, but none have I found that have been quite as helpful and easy to navigate through as CoSchedule.   So in an effort to be a resource as I always aim to do, I’m going to spend a few minutes in this video showing you how I go through the process of managing my blog and editorial calendar with CoSchedule.

You should know that this will be a review style post, giving you a big picture idea of what the tool can do and a behind the scenes look at how it works.  If you’re interested in trying it out for yourself, as of the date of this post, they are offering a free 14 day trial so you can dig in and see if you like it for yourself.

If you have any questions about whether or not you should try the tool or just what all it can do, leave me a comment in the box below and I’ll do my best to answer them for you.  If it’s something outside of my experience I’ll gladly point you over to the folks at CoSchedule themselves!  I hope you find this video helpful and be sure to leave me a note and let me know what you think!

3. Integrate With The Tools You Already Love

Use all your favorite tools (in one calendar). Create content using Google Docs. Gather stats with Google Analytics. Even sync your Evernote directly into CoSchedule.  Then even better than that it integrates directly with your WordPress dashboard allowing you to schedule your marketing campaigns around your blog posts directly from your dashboard.

This is a major time saving tool which is invaluable to a blogger that is working alone.

[ctt template=”4″ link=”G8yhV” via=”no” ]The major benefit I see to using this tool is the ability to manage your blog and social media from place in an organized manner where you are not only sharing but being efficient in your process.[/ctt] You guys know that I’m huge on making sure you are utilizing your time in the most effective way so that social media and blogging are not time sucks, but instead invaluable additions to your marketing campaigns.

There are several tools that are out there that claim to do this for small business owners, but they come at unreasonable rates that are not solo-preneur friendly, and for that I think this is hands down one of the most effective tools around.

I hope this tutorial was helpful for you, I’ll also include a short promotional video from CoSchedule themselves.  And if you’re interested in trying them out, you can use my referral link, or not the choice is yours.
