One of the great things about CoSchedule is if you're not using WordPress as your blog host, you can use standalone content to schedule and plan all your blog posts. You can also use the standalone content feature to plan out your Instagram, and Youtube content marketing. If you have a team plan, you can create tasks, and save the images you'll be promoting on those channels in the content area. You can also use the social queue in a standalone content piece to promote the published Instagram and Youtube content with your other social media accounts.

Enter your title. You can change the title at any time.
Click Create Content after you have entered your title and the Content window will open. In this window, you will see some features that are only for standalone content. You will see the Document Type and the Content Editor. Also, if you're planning to post social messages attached to this Standalone Content post in CoSchedule's Social Campaign, you must make sure that the Standalone Content post is Scheduled.
Click the Content Type icon. A drop-down will open and give you a choice of icons to add to your standalone content post to create a visual label.
This icon will show on your calendar so that you can identify certain content easier. Your standalone content will appear on your calendar just like your blog posts. Here they can drag and drop just like your blog posts and social messages.
Making content inside the Standalone Content creator is super easy. You can add Text, Images, Video, Downloadable Files, Google Docs, and Evernote notes to your content.
You can also add text to your standalone content post to be text-only or accompany whatever files you choose to add.
