A fantastic organizational tool that’s incredibly effective for allowing collaboration within teams. You can use Trello in a multitude of ways – such as assigning cards, having customizable boards and lists to map out your “to post list” – all of which make creating social media content calendars a breeze! Trello also offers a full calendar view which makes it easy to visualize what content is going out, and when.
Similar to Trello, but with a whole project template for Social Media planning which makes it even easier to map out your social media content strategy! With a full calendar view and the ability to make posts dependent on each other i.e. when you’re trying to create a funnel through your blog posts, Asana makes social media content management as easy as 123.
You might think hmm, how does a note-taking app help me create a social media content planner? Well it’s fairly simple, with features like weekly, monthly and yearly logs, a web-clipper extension to save links for sharing later on, snapping photos to save in your files to have a backlog of content to post – Evernote works a treat as a social media content planner!
