Imagine how much easier your life would be if you could just update all social media at once…
And what if you could go beyond that to simply schedule social messages to publish now and well into the future?
And what if you could do it all in a few easy minutes?
Well, your imagination really isn’t running that wild… because you can post to multiple social networks at once and well beyond with a beautiful and easy-to-use tool I like to call CoSchedule.
Here’s a sneak peek of exactly what I mean by posting to all social media at once with CoSchedule:
Now, just so I don’t get ahead of myself—and to help you choose the app that posts to all social media that’s right for you—let’s explore where to get started all the way through a real-life example of how this works.
Your first step is to create a checklist of what you need from an app to help you choose the ultimate best tool for you.
Here are the definite must-haves on your list to help you solve the problem of posting on multiple social networks now while also helping you easily scale your social media strategy.
In order to post to all social media at once, you need to find a tool that helps you manage all of your accounts in one place.
Create a social media accounts list to get you started. Here are a few things to think about…
You have business profiles:
You have personal profiles:
You’ll want to find an app to post to multiple social networks where you already have accounts. This will help you organize all of your social media, focus your efforts on the right profiles, and post consistently to every account.
This is kind of a given since updating all of your social media at once is the problem you need to solve. But there’s a difference between an app that can do this versus one that’s designed to make this an easy process.
Many tools may help you write one message and blast it to all of your social networks. But your followers on Twitter likely expect different messaging than your fans on Facebook.
You need an app that helps you write a variety of messages so you can tailor them to the unique experiences your audience expects on different social networks. This will help you increase your reach, boost your engagement, and grow your following.
Visual content is one of the best ways to make sure your social media messages stand out in crowded news feeds. But GIFs perform well on Twitter and don’t even animate on Pinterest where longer images dominate your followers’ screens.
Since you found an app that helps you post to all social media at once while tailoring your messages to each network, your next checkmark is to make sure that the tool supports visuals and that you can choose them specifically for each network or message.
Sure, you want a tool that posts to your social networks now.
But why not do the work of writing your messages once while automatically posting your social media messages at the absolute best times to increase your engagement and click-throughs?
Yeah, this is similar to making sure you share at the absolute best times. But what if you could also schedule more messages to send tomorrow, throughout the week, or even a month or two from now?
Find a tool that helps you schedule out well beyond today so you can post all of your messages today while consistently sharing relevant content with your followers well beyond right now.
So you just found an app that will help you write messages for each network and connect awesome visuals to each. It also helps you post at the absolute best times and allows you to schedule social media messages tomorrow, next week, and beyond.
Find an app that helps you save that social media posting schedule to reuse it as a template.
That will save you time by doing the hard stuff once, help you turn your social media posting into a repeatable and efficient process, and help you share awesome content consistently to grow your following. Win-win-win!
The more messages you post to your social networks, the more you’ll need a way to see everything that’s going out.
Search for a tool that gives you a visual at-a-glance view of the social media messages you’ll post every day of the week and allows you to easily drag and drop your messages to other days as needed.
Why not find a tool that helps you get completely organized with all of it in one place complete with as many workflows as you need?
You’ve probably guessed it, but CoSchedule is the world’s only social media calendar that will check off every point in your checklist. Let’s take a look at how you can use CoSchedule to post on multiple social networks at once (and beyond).
Simply log in to your social media accounts, then connect them into CoSchedule.
Once you’re set up, you won’t need to worry about logging in and out of your social networks to post your messages because you’ll schedule everything to send through CoSchedule.
You can easily write a message, choose an image, and post that same message to multiple accounts at once.
Step 1 and 2:
While this is a thing you can do, I recommend tailoring each message you send to a specific social network. This practice will help you write for each network accordingly to help you increase your reach, engagement, and click-throughs.
The following steps will help you learn how to do exactly that.
Use social helpers to write messages that you can reuse without copying and pasting.
I like to write social text helpers specifically for each network, then get inspiration for the actual messages from:
Next, mix up your visuals in your messages to add variety to your posting schedule. When you use social image helpers in CoSchedule, you can easily reuse your images in multiple social media messages without copying and pasting.
Sizing images correctly for each network can help you increase your engagement, and social image helpers make it easy to post those correctly for each network.
Here’s some inspiration for the types of images that perform well on social media:
Create a new social message in CoSchedule, then simply select your text and image helpers. CoSchedule will automatically send your message at the best time for the networks you select according to best practices.
The point of writing multiple messages and images is to schedule a variety of social media messages now and let them automatically post to all of your social media well into the future.
That will save you tons of time, organize your process, and help you share consistently.
Now you’ll post to multiple social networks at once with a variety of text and images, while also scheduling more messages for:
When you’re done, simply save your social queue as a template you can reuse again for other content you’d like to share.
Now that you’ve scheduled social media messages for multiple projects, it’s nice to see all of it on one calendar.
Easily filter by social media account to find days where you may have too much or too little activity, then drag and drop your messages accordingly. All of it is here!
You can use CoSchedule to manage all of your social media posting projects—blog posts, social media campaigns, Twitter chats, e-book promotions, anything!
Simply create your project on your calendar, then use tasks to seamlessly assign work to you and your team, complete with due dates.
Learning from example is a great place to start. So…
Let’s say your team just wrote the e-book on How To Create A Social Media Strategy. Wink-wink, this is a real example. ;)
Your team would add that project as Content on your CoSchedule editorial calendar.
From there, you’d create the Tasks necessary to complete the project, choose the task due dates, and assign them to your team to complete.
Posting to social media is one of the tasks assigned to you! And with CoSchedule, you can create your social media messages way before you publish the e-book.
Here we go:
In that same Content on your calendar, you’d simply open the Social Helpers and create your Text Helper tags.
Then you’d create your Social Image Helper tags.
Then you’d fill in the blanks of your Text Helpers with the actual copy you’d like to use in your social media messages.
Then you’d fill in your Image Helpers by uploading your graphics, pictures, or GIFs:
Next, you’d start filling up your Social Queue with messages. Choose your Text Helper and Image Helper, then select the Social Media Profiles to which you want to send those messages.
Add more messages to your queue to span days, weeks, or even months from the point of publish.
When you’re done creating your messages, simply Save Queue As New Template. Now you’ll be able to reuse the work you put into this template with future e-books—or whatever content you’d like to post, really.
That’s it! Your e-book is going to be a social media success because of you!
You just posted to multiple social networks at once—and scheduled tons of bonus messages that will help you post consistently without the tedious, manual work.
And the best part?
You saved all of the work you did creating Social Helper tags, scheduling your Social Queue, and creating a Social Template. So the next time you have to post on social media, it’ll only take you seven minutes or less because you’ll just have to add content into your text and image helpers.
You’re pretty much the best social media manager in the world right now. :)
