When we create systems, we make life a little bit easier. How hard is it to create/curate content for your social media platforms including your email list and blog? Super hard, especially after a full day of coaching that began at 5:00 am and it’s now 9:30 pm and you are just eating dinner.
Enter the marketing/social media editorial calendar. I use this calendar to plan out my entire next month of social media/blog/email content updates. Obviously new things come up, so there is always flexibility, but this gives you some direction and can make it easy to pass along to a coach, intern or client to execute for you. This is something I fill out monthly and work with one of my staff members on publishing the content. Helps systemize a process and saves me a lot of time. Plus using facebook’s scheduling feature helps out a lot. I use a variety of social medium platforms, but we’ve seen the biggest return on what we share on facebook. You can customize this for any medium.
I also recommend planning out your marketing efforts for the entire year or at least have the ideas written down month by month. You don’t need specifics, but if you want to do a Christmas party in December, write it down. That way as life gets busy, you start planning for the upcoming month, you know that you need to reference your yearly calendar to keep on target.
