A big tip and insight into what we do when planning client content is to take a big-picture look at the whole year and start adding in those key dates. It’s never too early to start planning! For example, if your business does a Black Friday sale every year, don’t wait the week before to plan it, have it marked in your year plan in January so you know to prepare in advance for it. You could prepare however far in advance you’d like even if it was just two weeks. This method just saves you from scrambling at the last minute. Last-minute marketing is not practical, likely results in sub-par content, and negatively impacts your ROI.
