How-to-develop-an-editorial-calendar-bloggingThe following video is the last of six snippets from a presentation we did on Business Blogging. So far, we've covered:

  1. Why you should start a business blog
  2. How to get started
  3. Creating content your audience will love
  4. How to create content with limited time
  5. Why consistency is the #1 key to content marketing success

To wrap up the series, there's one more important topic to cover. Once you've started your blog and have a quality plan in place, you need to keep track of it all by creating an editorial calendar.

In the quick video below, Donna explains why the editorial calendar is a vital tool and what you should include when developing yours:

  • Blog Topic or Title
  • Notes on the Blog Topic
  • Author
  • Internal Deadline & Publish Date
  • Target Audience
  • Intended Call-to-Action

She explains how recording these things in one place can help your team stay organized and help ensure your blog content is fresh and varied.
