SOCIAL CALENDAR – HOW TO CREATE A CONTENT CALENDAR FOR SOCIAL MEDIA


How do you create consistent content for social
media whenever it comes to your Brand. You need, a content calendar, a social media
content calendar for your marketing strategy to help you kind of create blogging material,
tips, tricks, different ways to share your content is what we’re talking about today
as well as how to create a consistent calendar to make sure that your content goes out as
planned. Consistency is key! The first part of being consistent is to make
sure that you’re actively engaged and posting on each of your social platforms or the ones
that you’re at least going to be on. Make sure that you’re posting at least once
a day on all of your platform. No matter what you decide to do. You need to make sure that you are consistent
in your posting. How do you create all of this content and
do it on a consistent basis? It can be one topic of content, but it can
be shared in many different ways. If you say something that kind of gets people
thinking. They, of course want to share it and share
your video, so it’s a good idea to maybe share something within the video or on social media. You post some type of quote that’s related
to the video, but you can share content in so many different ways. Tips and ideas, a video. You can be entertaining. You can do how to, testimonials, quotes, tools
and resources, blog posts, statistics, informative, pictures. It doesn’t have to be recreating the wheel
every time and you can also take other people’s content that they’ve created and think of
maybe how you can share it in a different way. For me, I create videos and I may share it
also in a blog post versus just a video. I will create a blog post from all of my videos
and reuse the video in a different way on my actual website. So if you go over to my website, you’ll see
that I have all my videos there and they’re posted with the transcript to my videos to
help me not only have a backlink to my video. It helps with the seo ranking and just overall
it helps with content creation. How do I keep up with all of this content
that’s going to be going out and being scheduled? Well, the easiest way to do it is to make
sure that you have a calendar of your own, that you store this on, you create it, and
you can kind of move it around. Now I have a paper version of a calendar that
I make, but I also have a digital version that I can view anywhere that I am. So I do this in a google sheet online so all
of my team members can access this at any time. What are some of the things that go into creating
a content calendar, and I’m going to show you really awesome template that you can use
at the end of this video. So make sure you stay tuned. I’m going to show you exactly what I’m using
and where you can go to download this and get it for yourself. You remember you’re gonna have your platforms
on it, so if you have facebook, twitter, Instagram, and then you might need to break it down a
little bit more because there’s Instagram post and then there’s instagram stories. Facebook where you might share something to
your personal profile versus your page or even if you have a Facebook group. Those are all things that you have to remember,
do I want to post this video to all of these or do I just want to post it to one of them? Keep in mind that every platform is different,
so the way that you share content on one platform is completely different from the way that
you share content on another platform. If you put this all into a calendar, it’s
so much easier to go into your calendar and kind of say, oh, OK, this is what we have
going out today. Oh, I need to go live, or however you plan
your content out and I do it the month before and have them on content planned out for the
entire month, but I may not actually schedule it or record it until like the week before. It just depends what I have going on or if
it’s something I’m doing when I’m traveling. I may not even have the content ready until
I am recording, but if it’s on my calendar, I already know to plan time to be able to
edit, upload, or do whatever I need to do for that video. Next thing that I add is events. If they’re, like I said, if there’s some type
of event going on, I have social media marketing world that I’m headed to next week and I’m
super excited about it, but that’s in that I’m putting on my calendar so that I can make
a note because I kind of wanted to do something maybe live or something related to social
media around that time. Emails, if there’s certain emails that need
to be going out, maybe it’s an email promoting a video or promoting a course that you just
launch or a product sale that you have. Whatever it is, you want to make sure that
you’re consistent in your emails as well, so that’s something that you want to put on
your content calendar because it revolves around your content. Other things I like to include on my content
calendar, are influencers. If there are certain people that I’m trying
to connect with, maybe that week or that month or around a certain topic. So those are some of the things that you want
to put on your content calendar as well as making sure that you’re sharing other people’s
content. Maybe you’re trying to connect with not just
yourself and your content, but share their content. I like to call it curating content. If you’re not sure what you’re going to create. I would plan on connecting with at least one
new person every week. I say one new person every day, but like big
influencers, you’re trying to get on their radar. It might be a good idea to put them on your
calendar, especially if it’s around the content that you’re posting. Hashtags, I cannot say this enough. Hashtags make your content pretty much found. If you want people to find your content, then
you need to put it in a way that they can find you? Hashtags are the way that social media kind
of Seo your content and it makes it searchable and optimize in the search engine on each
platform like twitter or facebook, instagram, people search for your content by the hashtags
that you’re using. They know what you’re talking about, so if
you want to target people in your niche it’s a really good idea to use hashtags that they’re
using or hashtags that some competitors are using. This may sound like a lot, but do not worry. You know, I got you covered. I have a content calendar that I’ve put together. It’s a template that you can use and you can
create your entire content for the week, the month, or even the year. It is in the description below so that you
can download it. Now you know how to create your own content
calendar. I’m giving you one and there’s no excuses
for not having awesome content this next month or week or even a year coming out. That means that it’s time to go, so I’ve given
you everything that you need so check out the description below. I’m Brandi of www.BlogginBrandi.com tons of
