Our users love CoSchedule because it saves them a ton of time, and helps them stay more consistent with their blog and social media scheduling. Today, we’re making that social media scheduling even easier.
Meet the social queue.
You may have heard us mention our recommended approach for scheduling social messages using a social media promotion schedule. This upgrade will help you do just that.
Using the queue, you’ll be able to easily share your content on social media more than once and create a steady drip of traffic back to your site. You’ll also be able to easily share your older posts with the world.
This new interface will quickly guide you through the process of creating social messages using a social timeline. You will be able to easily visualize which messages will be sent once your post goes live, or once it has been published.
You may have seen this chart from one of our previous blog posts:
Now, this concept is coming to life right from CoSchedule!
In the queue, social messages are now grouped based not the date they will be sent, adding clarity to your scheduling process. By default, the queue includes four key publishing times:
- Same day as post – Let you audience know right when your blog post goes live.
- Day after post – Build more traffic by sharing content the day after your post goes live.
- Week after post – For blog content that is still relevant a week later.
- Month after post – This option works particularly well for evergreen content that is always relevant.
Here’s a quick video I put together about how it works:
With this update, we’ve also built a new queue indicator that will be visible with each published post. It has been designed to let you know when you need to schedule new messages to continue driving traffic to your content.
One of the best ways to interact with this new indicator is from the top posts page, which is already one of the easiest ways to reschedule and re-promote your older blog content.
All-in-all, the new social queue should make your scheduling process faster and more focused on growing your blog traffic. Hopefully, it will help make you an even better blogger!
Thanks for checking it out. There’s lots more to come from the CoSchedule team!
