Dates For Your Social Media Calendar for 2019

Dates for your Social Media diary

If you've yet to create your 2019 social media calendar, there's still time to get cracking.

Developing a calendar gives you the tool for planning your content strategy for the year and will help you achieve more with less. How does it work?

Well, the idea is that you gain more views and shares by creating content about and around key dates that your customers care about.

First, you need to decide (or find out) which dates, and events your customers care about, and use these to create your calendar. Then, set aside time to create or re-purpose content in advance of these events, and develop social media posts that will hook your target demographic.
