If you are a blogger you’ve probably heard about CoSchedule and if you’re anything like me you’ve wondered if it’s worth it. I know when I first heard about CoSchedule, I had no desire to try it. Why should I pay money for a calendar when there are 100’s of free calendars available online.
Then, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to give it a try. CoSchedule offers a free trial which is awesome for really giving it a fair chance before you make a commitment. By the way the free trial doesn’t require a credit card!
Before I get into my thoughts of this program let’s go over some features of CoSchedule.
- Drag and drop calendar
- Ability to assign tasks to team members.
- You can schedule your Google+, Facebook and Twitter updates without leaving your blog!
- You can reschedule old blog content.
- The plugin is lightweight and doesn’t take up a lot of your WordPress resources.
Sounds cool, right? So how much does this cost? CoSchedule is $10 a month.
I’ve been trying CoSchedule out under their free trial and I have to say I’m really impressed. It was so easy for me to go in and plan out all my blog posts for the next few weeks. When I log into my blog and look at my calendar I love the clean feel of it. I’m able to quickly see what is scheduled to post that day, what I need to work on for the upcoming week and I can even see what social media updates will be going out.
At this time I don’t have a team of writers but if I did I’d be able to assign each team member tasks! This is a huge bonus for larger blogs. No more emailing back and forth and hoping they remember the tasks you assigned. You can now do it right from your WordPress dashboard.
