My template for March will be based on my theme for March or the product I am promoting that month. I have already laid out all my promotions, themes and campaigns for the year using the 2023 Business Planner.
Batch Create Content for Quick and Easy Content Creation
Don’t fall into the trap of creating one post or one image at a time. Batching is more efficient and is not only more productive it helps with consistency, frequency and cohesiveness. I spend 2 days on content creation. One day for writing the posts and the another day for creating graphics for the blog and social media and scheduling. You can read about my process here.
If you can’t be a month or two ahead try for at least 15 days. Batch create for March at least 2 weeks before. Don’t wait until March 1st to start creating. Use a tool like Canva to batch create your graphics.
Use the 2023 Business Planner to map out your whole year and be prepared for each month.
