How an Editorial Calendar Saves Time for your Small Business
NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — While most small business marketers leverage content as the foundation for their online marketing strategy, not everyone has mastered how to maintain their content creation productivity. Continuing to come up with fresh content on an on-going basis is challenging for many marketers. To help small business marketers overcome this challenge, the latest article posted to PR Newswire’s Small Business PR Toolkit focuses on the importance of an editorial calendar.
Contributing author Phillip Thune, CEO of TextBroker, outlines the need for editorial calendars. In this article, Thune provides tips to get you started and tricks to stay on track:
Theme. To get started, Thune suggests focusing on a different theme or topic each month. Identify a general concept that serves as a placeholder that begins to get you thinking far in advance on the topic in question.
Quantity. The next step is to determine how much content is needed to support the editorial timelines you’ve put into place. The simplest of timetables can include the assigned authors, designers, titles of content and the publishing medium.
Communicate. To stay on track with your editorial calendar, Thune suggests communicating the calendar with all stakeholders in order to establish accountability and set expectations for all who are involved.
