Setting up your editorial calendar isn’t difficult. A basic Excel sheet or Microsoft Word Table will do the trick. At a minimum, it should contain the following information:

DateWriter or content producer responsible for drafting the pieceWorking titleYour target keywordsContent format (e.g. blog post, white paper, etc.)Call to actionStatus

 

More fleshed out content calendars can include any or all of the following:

For individual pieces, they might include approval chains, alternate titles, and target publicationsOverall campaign goals, mapped to each individual pieceDetails on your audience profiles, mapped to each individual piece. Who are you speaking to with this article? What aspect of their experience do you want to dial up, specifically?What publications are you targeting with your overall campaign, what’s their demographics and contact details?What are your key performance indicators overall for the campaign? How is each individual piece performing against those metrics?What are the biggest successes of the campaign?What roadblocks or issues have you run into as part of the content campaign you’re managing?

 

Your editorial calendar can become much more than just a list of dates and targets. It can serve as a centralized workbook where you manage your entire content flow. It can also serve as a strategic hub that makes it easy to evaluate your progress at any specific moment in time.
