Maintaining a consistent posting schedule on social media – whether it’s writing blog posts, or sharing updates on social media channels – can be a challenge.
When I teach social media classes, I always recommend creating a social media calendar so you can map out in advance upcoming holidays and cause awareness days. By doing this, you will have a ready supply of things to share on social media.
To help you plan your content in advance, I’m going to highlight some events happening this month which you can add to your calendar.
See which of the following awareness days you could build engagement around. You could write a blog post, create a video or graphic, and then share it on Twitter and Instagram with the relevant hashtag.
Have some fun with these – but do make sure whatever you create and share fits with your brand!
