    What is a Social Media Content Calendar?

    A social media calendar is a worksheet/ document that marketing professionals use to plan, schedule, and track content for multiple social media accounts for months or even a year ahead of time. It enables them to maintain a consistent posting schedule, adhere to deadlines, measure results, and streamline their team workflows.

    How to Create a Social Media Content Calendar?

    • Open a Creately social media content calendar template. Invite your team as editors to collaborate on populating it together.
    • Conduct a social media content audit to identify social media content activity and identify what you need to improve. You can migrate the audit data into Creately and create visual databases to store them.
    • Identify social media platforms that are used by your target audience and popular content trends that you should explore yourself to gain their attention.
    • With the information you have gathered on your target audience, and the marketing objective you have set, the next step is to come up with content ideas.
    • Establish a workflow by adding prioritized content ideas to your calendar, keeping in mind the post frequency and best time to post.
    • Identify key data such as date, time, platform, copy, visuals, link to assets, & link to published posts, that your social media content calendar should include. You can use Notes and create data fields via Shape Data to store and add all this information.
    • Export your social media content calendar as a PDF, SVG, or PNG to publish or share it or use the workspace embed code to embed it in any site, intranet or app.
