Create A Content Marketing Calendar

Monthly Content Marketing Calendar

Monthly Content Marketing Calendar

Creating a content calendar allows you to create a framework that shows what, how much and where,  you’re planning to interact socially.  Content Marketing Calendars also allow you to see how the content posting supports your social marketing objectives.

Let’s be be honest..  It’s hard coming up with fresh content but when you do, you want to make the most of it. Planning your content and social media distribution will show when to write that blog or post and when to promote it through your various social channels.  And, if  your content is share worthy, you can send it out again or hopefully your connections and followers will share it and increase it’s virality.

A  Content Marketing Calendar will quickly show you how best to spread the information and line up various communication channels to support the distribution.  Things like podcasts, videos, charts, and other supporting marketing materials that makes your content more valuable.

The goal of a content calendar

It can be difficult to get started or get editorial teams to implement a content calendar. Don’t worry you can keep it simple, you don’t have to use spreadsheets. However, whatever your method,  if your content production is tied to specific strategic marketing goals then it is useful to create a calendar so that you can plan ahead, delegate tasks and benchmark your success.

More specifically, a content calendar enables a business to:

  • Make a note of key events in the industry calendar.
  • Plan around seasonal events or holidays, such as Back To School, Christmas or Easter and 4th of July.
  • Ensure you are creating a variety of content rather than getting stuck focusing on one channel.
  • If possible, delegate specific tasks to others.
  • Make sure everyone on the content team is aware of their deadlines.
  • Plan ahead so that content creation isn’t always a last minute rush.

Google+ – Google Plus

Google-Plus-Logo

Google+ – Share and discover, all across Google and the Web. Google+ 6,616,656 followers – https://plus.google.com [June 19, 2014]

Google+ (Google Plus) is new to us all. Since its launch in 2011, Google Plus has been gradually moving towards being one of the most active social networks in the world. Learning the ins and outs of Google+ is a bit like a new born baby trying to figure out the whole world. There are now over 540 million active users worldwide and the numbers are steadily growing. Google+ is on track to overtake Facebook as the world’s most widely used (largest) social network.

Unless you are a public figure, a celebrity or a recent YouTube sensation, you probably won’t have thousands or hundreds of thousands of followers on Google+. So many people have not even made an attempt to create a Google+ profile (personal) or leverage the power of Google+ for their businesses and brands.

It’s Not About The Numbers!

This will be the Intro to Google+, or what I have referred to online as “The Matrix”. I was beginning to feel frustrated when I created my Google+ account but I remembered I felt the same way when I created my Twitter profile @FelixLGriffin. A year ago I had 50 Followers, now I have, as of this blog, almost 900. I like to say I earned them. Better yet, I engaged them. I created and shared great content, interacted with other users and I shared content that I was interested in and that my audience or those on Google+ would be interested in.
Honestly, forget about the numbers. If you are in it for the long run and passionate about what you do the engagement will happen, the followers will come, numbers will grow and you will be successful. I would rather have 10 people who find me interesting than 100 people who find me boring. I would rather have 5 people who follow me and interact with me than 100 people who’ve never interacted with me on Social Media. I have followers (10 or so) on Twitter who have almost 1 Million followers. I have followers on Google+ as well who have over 10,000 followers. It’s a good feeling; But Remember, It’s Not About The Numbers!

My approach to Social Media is the the Golden Rule – “Do Unto Others as You Would Have Them Do Unto You” and K.I.S.S. - “Keep It Simple & Share”. That being said: Let’s Get Started on Google+!

PROFILE

First step in getting started with Google+ is to create a profile.

  • Introduce yourself – Say a little bit about who you are and what you’re into. Choose a profile photo, throw in some fun facts, and even add some bragging rights. Your Google+ profile helps friends and family recognize you across Google.
  • Make a great first impression – Show the world a little about who you are and what makes you tick. Your Google+ profile helps you control how you appear within Google+ and all across Google. Learn More

CIRCLES

Connect and Create Your Circles.

  • Connect with friends and family – Add friends and family to Circles to see what they’re sharing. Circles help you share with just the people — whether you’re sending an inside joke to your family or sharing that unbelievable photo with everyone.
  • Share – Google+ is about great conversations. When you find an interesting post, you can show your appreciation by adding a comment or +1. Or share something new, whether it’s a photo, a video, a link, or whatever else is on your mind.
  • Engage with your interests – Some of the world’s most creative and inspiring minds are on Google+, posting their latest ideas, videos, and photos on the topics you’re into. Add your favorite musicians, writers, athletes and entertainers to see what they’re saying right now, or join Communities that match your passions.
    Connect with Me – +Felix L. Griffin
  • Photos – Share more beautiful moments via photos, slides or videos. Nothing is more shared or keep people more engaged than photos. Photos are a great way to engage your circles on Google+. Also, keep your photos safely backed up online, where they’re accessible from any device. Photos are automatically enhanced to look better than ever, and it’s easy to find highlights from your collection to share. Learn more
  • Circles – Control who sees what you share. Easily manage whose updates you see and choose who you’d like to share with. You can broadcast to the world, or keep your conversations private. Learn More

COMMUNITIES

Create and Build Your Communities. Connect with the right people. Talk about the stuff you’re into with people who love it too. Join public communities around shared interests, or create private communities to get together with just the right people. Learn More

HANGOUTS

Create Hangouts. Hangouts bring your conversations to life. Create a Hangout and bring your conversations to life with photos, emoji, and even group video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, Android and Apple devices. Learn More

MOBILE

Stay Connected via Google+ Mobile. Take Google+ with you on the go and stay connected with the Google+ (Google Plus) App. The Google+ app lets you stay connected and keep up with the conversation on the go. Automatically back up your pictures, video chat directly from your phone, talk about the stuff you’re into with Communities, create events, and much more, all from the palm of your hand.

Infographic – Growth Of #VisualMarketing On The Web: #GrowthHacking

90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and there is another theory that says visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text. 40% people will respond better to your visual content than plain text.

Visuals could mean images, photos with text overlays, videos, memes, CTA banners etc.

When trying to reach young adults, use videos and images. 85% of US Internet users watch videos online, with age group 25-34 being most active. If you’re targeting adult males, your videos have 40% more chance of being viewed than by adult females.

Check out this infographic for more amazing stats on how visual has grown on the Internet.
