Creating a Content Workflow

Rebecca Lieb gives us advice on putting together a content marketing workflow as part of your content strategy. After establishing goals and priorities, successful organizations create a process to publish content. In this article, Rebecca articulates that the editorial calendar should stand as the backbone of your content strategy, and I couldn’t agree more. 

An editorial calendar establishes what content will be created, what format it should take, which channel it is meant for, and when it will be published. A digital editorial calendar also tracks the connections for a given piece of content, including how it will be repurposed and amplified in social media channels.

Editorial calendars make it much easier to manage authors, especially if you have a large content team or use freelancers. It’s a great tool to set up reminders, schedule dates and establish the promotion process. Remembering dates isn’t always simple when you have separate deadlines for drafts, edits, graphics and publishing.
