4 Easy Steps to Build Your Social Media Editorial Calendar.

  1. Use your Buyer Persona as a guide.

  2. Create a sheet with columns and rows. The columns will hold the days of the week, the rows will be your categories/subjects to talk about.

  3. Determine what kind of content you are going to use to support each subject. Are you going to have an image, video, testimonies, examples, etc? As you know, short video's are the way to go, they entice and keep your reader, and are the most popular. If you have your own video's great, use them or even make them. These videos only need to be a few second long to support your topic.

  4. Once you have done steps 1 thru 3, now check off the days of the week and the subjects you will be talking about, and there you have it, your social media editorial calendar!
