2019 content calendar tips

Most people are not highly organized, bastions of responsibility and accountability who never miss a deadline or procrastinate. Maybe you are, then you don’t need this article. But if you are fallible, here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your digital outreach.

step 1. make a loose content calendar.

Don’t get too ambitious or you won’t stick to your guns. Shoot for two posts a month to start

step 2. make it accountable

Set reminders and give yourself realistic goals.

step 3. plan your year now

So what if it’s already the second month of the year, don’t let that stop you.

step 4. take advantage of holidays.

Big or small, all holidays matter! Our biggest post two years ago was for Donut Day. This year, it was ‘Last Minute Gift Ideas’ from our team.

step 5. cross post.

When you write your blog post, make sure you follow it up with posts on social media. Not only does it increase your reach, but it also provides valuable links.
