Introducing CoSchedule, the newest member of our Technology Partner Program

We’re excited to announce that CoSchedule has joined our Technology Partner Program. CoSchedule is a comprehensive marketing tool to help you and your team execute your entire content marketing strategy within WordPress.com VIP. If you’re looking to plan awesome content and save a bunch of time, the CoSchedule plugin on VIP can help you do just that.

Here are 10 reasons to check out CoSchedule:

1. Customize Team Roles 

WordPress VIP customizable team roles

Customize everyone’s role on your team to give permissions for specific responsibilities. Help them use the features they need to do their work, and hide the ones that get in their way.

2. Control Who Can Share Content

WordPress VIP custom social media permissions

You can control access to your social profiles to limit who can and can’t publish to each account. Give specific team members the rights to use certain company social media profiles while restricting others’ access. This will help you get a ton of traffic from your team, while providing advanced accountability for social sharing.

3. Advanced Profiles For Sharing Content

WordPress VIP social media security and private profiles

When you create content your team is really proud of, they’ll want to share it with their personal fans, followers, and friends. Your team can rock at social media with private social profiles and share your content to generate even more traffic.

4. Better Accountability

WordPress VIP security and access logs

Sometimes, you just need to know who published what. It helps to have a full history log of who modified your blog and social media content. CoSchedule will help you know exactly who did it.

5. Scheduling Social Media Messages

Schedule social media messages as you write your blog posts. That means multiple team members can work on a project at the same time to move faster, be more productive, and work together in the same tool to see what everyone is working on.

6. Custom Workflow That Works For Your Team

Create a workflow that suits your needs: build your own task templates, name those tasks, assign them to the right custom roles for your team, and automatically change the due dates if you move your content around on your calendar.

7. Analytics

You need to know how your content performs to prove your ROI and improve your future content.

8. Work Where It Works Best For You

You can access CoSchedule directly within WordPress.com VIP, or as a standalone web app.

9. Security

CoSchedule uses the same security technology most banks use to protect your information. Check out their status log whenever you’d like to see stats on our up times. You’ll always have access to at least two support techs during regular business hours, and at least one support tech is on call 24 hours a day.

10. Get The Support You Need

There’s something special about receiving support that helps you get through a tough problem. And taking that to a whole other level is even better. Get the priority level support you need for any question you have when you choose CoSchedule for WordPress.com VIP.

The support includes setup assistance and full support for your entire experience with CoSchedule. Don’t hesitate to reach out.

As you know, Getty Images is also a Featured Partner and has built a VIP plugin that allows users to license and access images directly from the Editor. Unlike the free embed, this plugin requires a license to Getty Images.
