Updated: Nov 18, 2020

Starting a business, having your own brand, and creating what you are most passionate about are all exciting things. You get the opportunity to give your business/brand the exposure it deserves while collaborating and interacting with others that are part of the same idea. However, all of it comes with many responsibilities and a high level of commitment. As we discussed in one of the blog posts it is easy to get overwhelmed with all of the expectations and commitments you have when you have an active role in the business world. That is why staying organized is one of the most important things to take into consideration.

In today's blog post I will be sharing with you an amazing tool to stay on top of your to-do list, and that is an editorial calendar. I will be talking about what an editorial calendar is, some of the advantages, and sharing with you some of the tools you can use when creating one.

An editorial calendar, in short, is a calendar that lets you visualize your due dates, upcoming projects, or anything you need to get done while creating content and posting content. This type of calendar allows you to see the bigger picture while still getting into the specifics of each project you manage. Being able to visualize everything makes it easier for you to see how much work you have daily, weekly, and even monthly. The biggest advantage of this is that it prevents you from forgetting something or even worse not giving your work the quality it needs because you are trying to get everything done at once.
