Check out this quick guide on how To Create Your Own Social Media Content Calendar in 5 Easy Steps:
1. Decide how often you want to post
Think about how many times you want to post each week. I would suggest posting every day, but a few times a week works as well, as long as you stay consistent.
2. create a List of Topics
On a blank piece of paper write down all of the topics you could be talking about. For example: Quotes, tips. behind-the-scenes... If you want to post daily, narrow down to 7 topics.
3. Link Topics to Days
Every day should have a topic attached to it.
For example: Motivation Monday, Tip Tuesday, Behind The Scenes Wednesday. It will not only make it easier on you to have the topics planned in advance, but it will also keep your posts balanced.
4. Download a template and fill out your calendar.

Download it and fill out your entire calendar with chosen topics. This way you already know the topic for each day well in advance which makes it way easier to create a post. Than brainstorm and look for some inspiration online and scribble down the exact topic for each day.
5. Watch your analytics
Track your analytics and see which posts are getting the most engagement. Try to double down on the content that gets the best response and eliminate the posts that are not recieved as well.
My business really changed when I started creating social media calendars. Since I started, I never miss a day, which really increased my following and engagement. Hope you like this tips and let me know if you have any questions.
