How do social media calendars work?
A social media calendar is most commonly created on a month to month basis, to allow you the ability to have enough time to plan your content, without it becoming too fixed. For example you still want the freedom to be flexible and still be able to add in some ad hoc content for certain days, events or trends when they occur.
The first step would be to create a central platform to organise your content, for example we’d suggest creating your social media content calendar in Google Sheets. You can then create a template including all of your key information from the date, campaign name and post text, you can even add a section for creative to confirm whether it has been completed or not. You can even add a time you want to post and set reminders to fit, so you never forget to share your content.
