There are many different social media calendar tools to choose from, all of which offer a variety of benefits. Social media calendars can range from basic grids to more elaborate dashboards; the important thing is to start with a customized system that will work the best for your individual business.
1. Google Drive
Google Drive is a free app that starts with 15 GB of free space. Google Drive includes access to tools like Google Docs and Google Sheets. You can easily create a social media calendar with Google Drive in a few easy steps:
Create a main folder in Google Drive, and share it with whomever you would like to have access to your calendar.
Create a folder within the main folder, and name it with the appropriate month and year.
Within the new folder, create a Google Sheet. You can title the header of the sheet with the same month and year as the folder. You can then make seven rows, one for each day of the week. Type daily deadlines and reminders into each row and there you have it, your very own Google Drive social media content calendar!
Hubspot’s calendar tool is a fully integrated editorial calendar, which allows you to schedule emails, blog articles, custom landing pages, and social media posts. Tasks can be created by title, publishing date, assignee, campaign, or notes. Hubspot also includes a Content Repository and a Social Network Update tab that can help you to manage past content and schedule publishing.
Evernote has a variety of helpful templates, including Business Plans, Project Trackers, and a Social Media Calendar. It also includes a feature that can connect Evernote with your Google Calendar.
Hootsuite is a social media marketing and management site that allows you to integrate many different social media platforms in one convenient location.
