Benefits of using a social media calendar

Planning ahead can guarantee that your social media activity integrates with the rest of your marketing activities and you take a proactive stance to important dates coming up.

We recommend adapting your social posts to each network and audience, and planning out your posts ahead can ensure users have a consistent experience on your social pages. A calendar can ensure that the right tone of voice and content is used on different networks.

This way, social media can have a real positive impact on your marketing campaigns and help you reach your objectives. It will also help you to avoid classic embarrassing situations like this one:

Benefits of using a social media calendar:

  • You’ll be more organised
  • It’ll ensure you post regular updates and content
  • You’ll make a connection between all the social media platforms you use so you have a consistent message
  • You’ll create maximum interaction and engagement through updates and promotions that tie in with holidays or events
  • You’ll prevent writer’s block
  • It’ll save you time

This is the sixth year we’ve produced a customisable editorial calendar for our readers.

Contains features such as:

  • Twitter character counter
  • Tweet length alert
  • Allows you to plan your messages across four platforms – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram
  • National and international holidays with their official hashtags – all updated for 2021

This can be customised to suit your business. For example, you may want to remove the Instagram columns and insert Pinterest for example.

How to use our social media content calendar

Make sure you have a clear plan of action:

  1. Decide what you want to promote, e.g. a product launch, an event, an achievement, advice
  2. Decide when you want to promote your content, and on which networks
  3. Prepare your content, e.g. copy, image, video, link
  4. Prepare any pages that your social posts link through to, e.g. landing pages
  5. Populate your content calendar
  6. Check your results against your targets and make adjustments if necessary

Using a social media content calendar this way allows you to plan your content months in advance, have multiple team members work on your content (increased accountability) and review it anytime.
