We're rounding up all the different resources we have for planning and creating amazing content and putting them all in one spot.
This mini course includes one 20-min video with printables to walk you though setting up a content strategy and planning process for your blog. You'll learn about how to make a content framework, brainstorm post ideas, plan out your content via an editorial calendar, further develop pos ideas, and plan out your content via a weekly posting schedule and task list.
Each phase of the process has it's own printable. If you don't currently have a content planning process in place, you can adopt the entire planning system, or you can just pick and choose which steps and printables you want to improve your current process.
In our January webinar, we shared our process and some of our best tips for planning and scheduling out content. We talk about goal setting and why we do in on a monthly basis instead of yearly, as well as chat about the 4 different categories you should be setting growth goals for as a blogger and how to go about doing it for each:
- Blog Growth
- Social Growth
- Brand Collaborations & Income Goals

Watch this webinar to give you a good overview for planning and setting blog goals, then dig into the Content Planning Mini-Course for more specifics about planning content that aligns with those goals.
