Your Ideal Content Calendar (Content Not Included! 😂)

Your Ideal Content Calendar (Content Not Included! 😂 )

Use this helpful guide to make your next round of social media scheduling easier and more effective:

Facebook

What to Post:

  • Video (organic engagement is highest on posts that include native or live video)
  • User Generated Content
  • Giveaways
  • Funny or entertaining posts and memes
  • Current events
  • Inspirational quotes and images

When to Post:

  • At least one post a day, but no more than two. Daily posting grows followers 4 times faster than sporadic or weekly posting. 
  • The best time of day to post is at 9 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm, and Thursday-Sunday brings the highest number of views.

Instagram

What to Post:

  • Video (vertical, please!)
  • High-quality native images
  • Shoppable links
  • Campaign-specific hashtags
  • Stories with filters, stickers, and other visual effects
  • Interactive stories that include polls, questions, or contests

When to Post:

  • 2-3 feed posts per week, but no more than 1 per day. Instagram’s Chief officer suggests that 2 feed posts per week and 2 stories per day is the magic number for building a larger following.
  • The best time to post is between 10am and 3pm, and Wednesdays bring the heaviest traffic. 

Twitter

What to Post:

  • Images rather than video- Twitter is the outlier where video is actually the least popular format
  • Text
  • List-based or how-to content
  • Quotes
  • Follow the “rule of thirds”- 1/3 of your posts should promote your business, 1/3 should share personal stories, and 1/3 should share insights from experts or influencers. 

When to Post:

  • At least once a day, no more than 5 posts per day
  • Twitter gets the most engagement Wednesdays at 9am and Thursdays at 9am and 8pm.

LinkedIn

What to Post:

  • Content centered around people- highlight team members or customers
  • “Best of” list for your industry, people that inspire you or influence you, and technology
  • Native content- blogs, articles, video, images, PDF documents
  • Interactive content that encourages engagement- polls, questions, requests for feedback
  • Video, especially live video, brings the highest rates of engagement

When to Post:

  • At least once a day, but no more than 5 posts per day
  • The best time for B2C businesses to post is between 11am and 2pm, but B2B businesses should post outside of 9-5 business hours.
