Can an Editorial Calendar really work? I hear this question a lot and the short answer is, “Yes, it can!”. The long answer is, “Yes, it can if you set it up properly and use it consistently.”. I know people who use all types of ways to remind themselves when to write on their blog, here are just a few:
- To Do Lists (paper and online)
- Spreadsheets (printed and online)
- Marketing Websites where you may or may not pay a monthly fee to schedule all your tasks
- Task Scheduling software (again you may or may not have to pay, depending on the brand)
- and many more …
Well today’s your lucky day – if you have a WordPress website! There is a plugin called: Editorial Calendar available here.
This is a great way to get organised and to come up with blog posts in advance.
To see how to use this clever editorial calendar, watch this video from Zack, the developer, who shows how easy it is to use — do you think this might be helpful for you too?
Have you used anything like this editorial calendar? Or do you already have a system that works well for you? I’d love to hear about it.
