How The Business Classroom uses CoSchedule?

At The Business Classroom we use CoSchedule for all of our social media scheduling onto our Facebook Page, Facebook Groups, Pinterest Boards, Tumblr, Twitter and Google + accounts.

Love the best time feature when scheduling we seem to get increased reach on our Facebook page when we use this feature vs picking a time randomly myself.

I love how easy it is to schedule posts to 5+ areas simply and easily, it even shows me what the post will look like on each of the platforms which I love as it allows me to customise the post for the platform. It is easy to schedule and rearranging posts is as simple as drag and drop.

The new template, social campaign and shortcodes are great for regular promotions (we use them for our Quick Fix session promotions), allows you to schedule in bulk and quickly a post you regularly want to come out on your platforms.

The Business Classroom will be continuing to use CoSchedule for all our social media scheduling.

    • YES – that was a new feature added in the last 12 months, allows you to pin to any of the boards you have set up in your Pinterest Profile.

    • As of when I am writing this blog post the answer is No – however they have advised that it is in the pipeline currently to be an added social media integration in the future.
