What is Editorial Planning?

The editorial planning equation

The principle of editorial planning is very, very simple: it' s about planning in advance which blog post or social media post will be published, on which day, and for which reason.

The equation is simple: 1 subject + 1 day = 1 objective

Great, you'll tell me, but what's the advantage of planning everything in advance, and especially how to go about it (when you barely have the inspiration to find the title of your next article)?

Why use an Editorial Planner?

Well, let me list the wonderful benefits of editorial planning for you, your blog and your social networks. One thing you should know: we are talking about Webflow, Design and Business. So there is as much creativity as efficiency and profitability as you can see. Creating an editorial plan can be a real asset for your strategy, if you think about it.

You can use the editorial calendar to ride current and seasonal trends as they come in, and boost your chances of "buzzing", attracting more readers and therefore potential customers. The editorial calendar can also be used to prepare a product launch or a business event in the long term.

It works perfectly whatever the platform: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn and another one that would come to light.

Like putting together a series of articles on a specific theme before launching your training on that same theme. In short, creating an editorial plan is a bit like putting on superhero glasses that allow you to see the future (and yes, here you are in Marty McFly's shoes).

12 benefits to getting started with Editorial Planning :

To inspire you and give you the push you need to take action, here are the benefits of using an editorial planner:

Anticipate the work you will need to produce
Result = You will know what to do each day.

Working in calm
Result = No stress, everything is under control.

Be regular, don't let your site be abandoned

Long-term visibility of your content
Result = You will be able to create a real perspective on things

Competitive advantage
Result = This is also a real competitive advantage for your business (see next point)

How to Create an Editorial Plan in 3 steps?

So, now that I've been able to propel you into the future: how are you going to create your editorial plan? It's simple, there are 3 steps in the equation:

Decide what you're going to put in your editorial schedule

You can find several things: Content of upcoming articles for your blog
Posts for your social networks. Plan the digital products you will sell in the future. Determine the events and special offers like Black Friday, Sales, Discounts, etc. It's up to you what you want to put in there, so go crazy! As for me, I'm planning new training launches, YouTube and blog topics, and instagram posts. I don't hide the fact that some of it is done by feel.

Choose your editorial planning tool

You can find a recent video where I share with you 40+ Tools not to be missed to Boost your productivity

You can create a schedule on your Apple or Google calendar. You can use a notepad of course. Otherwise, I invite you to try Notion and Trello (they are free)

Find, organize and plan your ideas

Now that you've found your ideal medium, it's time to fill it in! Take the time to write down all your content ideas (or pull out your list if you already have one), and go through it all.

Then, start planning in your calendar the future articles, posts (and other content) for the coming weeks and months.

As I said above, don't hesitate to be strategic, riding the wave of seasons, holidays, various events, and your own company's highlights (product launches, discounts, etc.).
