2020 Social Media Calendar
This is for the social media managers, virtual assistants, marketing coordinators, and anyone that wants to run successful social media campaigns.
This social media calendar template is a starter tool for organizing your posts for the year across a combination of social media platforms. It contains the basic fields needed to organize content planning and scheduling.
multiple social media platforms
This calendar has built-in content planning for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, and one unnamed social network.
It’s not necessary to use each field and depending on the type of content you post, you can adjust the networks showing or add spaces for additional posts.
The default for each month is two posts per social media network per week.
Google sheet template
The download for this calendar will prompt you to make a copy. It’s built in Google Sheets, a free online tool to edit documents and spread sheets. After creating your own copy, you can save it to your own Google Drive for further editing.
Create consistent social media content for your account and your clients'.
We, as digital marketers, preach consistency on social media (and, if we’re being honest, consistency generally applies to all aspects of marketing) all the time. Putting the time and effort into consistent posts online will strengthen your social media strategy regardless of your industry.
Use a posting calendar in unison with other marketing tools
A calendar alone will not give you consistency. However, it will keep you on schedule and organized and in the end, that will keep you consistent. Within this template, get as specific as your process needs you to. Enter in campaigns as far ahead as you know about them. This includes adding when you need to start working on that campaign, not just the launch date.
Use it for more than scheduling your posts
Create as many rows as you need to be able to plan other aspects of your marketing.
Launching a lead capture campaign on Instagram? Make notes about what you need to be doing on other networks or platforms, even if it’s not public posts. These are things like updating landing pages, creating new e-mail lists, or scheduling branding shoots.
create as many copies as you want for clients or extensive campaigns
Many digital marketers now run more than one account. Create a calendar to keep your clients organized or for detailed campaigns that will require long term social media marketing.
You can also share this calendar with your clients or collaborators to keep everyone up to speed.
