More CoSchedule Features We Love
Just when you thought CoSchedule couldn’t get any better than what we’ve already shared they went and rolled out the ReQueue feature last year. So…naturally we want to share the cool stuff we found!
This feature is awesome! As a small to mid-sized business, it can be easy to let your social media postings fall to the wayside especially when you don’t have time to create fresh content. If you do get the chance to write some new posts, it takes time to schedule them out so you may only share them up to three times.
Don’t let your content go to waste! ReQueue will take the messages you add to your ReQueue section and automatically schedule social posts for you. It looks for gaps where you don’t have anything being shared and fills those gaps. It intelligently fills your calendar with social posts. If you get a chance to finally catch up on your blog posts, it will scale back what it’s auto filling to make room for your new posts. How cool is that!
This is a get feature I think most small to mid-sized businesses should take advantage of to help with their content marketing strategy.
One of My Favorite Features – Headline Analyzer
There are so many great features that come with CoSchedule, but one of my favorites is the Headline Analyzer. If you caught my ToolTip post a couple of weeks ago,#ToolTip: How to Boost Engagement with CoSchedule’s Headline Analyzer, you got to see how easy it is to use the Headline Analyzer within WordPress. This feature is great because it gives you an idea of what your blog post title is saying to others. Will it create engagement? Or will they pass it by because it sounds boring? The headline you choose for your writings is vital to whether or not it gets read.
We are saturated with blog posts from every direction on just about every social media platform. So, you must find a way to make your post pop and entice your viewers. You don’t have a lot of time to make that first impression so make it count.
It’s difficult keeping everyting together and everyone on the same page. Make it easy on your team and check out CoSchedule. It’s integration with WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Buffer, Google+ Pages, Evernote, Google Docs, and more makes it so easy to manage everything. Check out CoSchedule today!
