content calendar

It’s that day of the week again. You need to write a blog post or record a video. But wait… what on earth are you going to talk or write about? If you have felt this way once, twice, or several times, you are not alone. Once in a while, we get stuck when it comes to coming up with content. This is where a content calendar comes in handy.

You probably have heard that 2013 is the year for content marketing. Consistently creating great content is important for building authority. This is why having a content calendar is extremely important if you want to post new content on a regular basis, and not just whenever you feel like posting. 

In the video below, I’ll teach you how to create a content calendar that works. This isn’t a tutorial mainly on the tools you can use, but more importantly, what components are essential on a content calendar. 

I mentioned a couple of tools you can use for creating a content calendar. These are the tools I have mentioned (and some other suggestions):

  • Google spreadsheet
  • Google calendar
  • Online to-do apps (e.g. Remember The Milk, TeuxDeux)
  • WordPress editorial calendar plugin
  • Good ol’ pen and paper
  • Microsoft Office Word (for PC)
  • Evernote

Do you have a content calendar? I would love to hear your personal tips for planning your content weekly, monthly, or yearly. Let’s talk in the comments below.
