Build Your Editorial Calendar Using Notion
2 min. read
If you know me, you know it's no secret how much I LOVE Notion! It's such a great tool for multiple different use cases and I enjoy having everything in one place across different devices. I love creating different types of content, as it fuels my creative side, but everything has a different processes which can get overwhelming. Luckily, Notion saves the day and helps me build out my editorial calendar.
An Editorial Calendar is used to keep track of your publishing schedule across different social media platforms. It's not just about when you post something but the process involving how you post something. (Mattie James has a great post that discusses more in depth how to build your own)
The Idea Bank
For what I post on Instagram or on my blog, I have different databases that house these ideas. Each of these databases are mapped as a board that outlines what step of the journey I am on in creating content.
Blog Content Process :
Instagram Content Process:
Using a Calendar database, that's where I map out when I want posts to be scheduled. I always reference that Blog Post or Instagram Post that I want to have promoted and this is where I include the captions. For Blog Posts, when I market them on Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, so I include captions to include in each place.
This process makes things collaborative and organized and allows me to reflect on what I've been posting and working on. If you want this template for yourself, you can use this link here.
