CONTENT

CALENDAR

Timing is everything.

 

The content calendar is a blueprint for your entire marketing strategy. It helps you plan which platforms to use to reach your audience, what topics to talk about, and when to talk about them. Whether you're promoting for a season or an event, the more you plan efficiently the more relevant and contextual you will be to your audience - making your content more relatable and engaging.

 

Are you wondering when you should start writing that next blog, how those blogs work into your newsletter schedule, or what a social media promotion calendar looks like? Although each calendar comes equipped with over 50 blog topics, no matter if your blogging cadence is once a week or once a quarter, the calendar is easy to personalize. And since we give you calendar files, you can easily update your existing Google, Outlook, or Apple calendars and view your strategy where ever you are, on any device, and with no additional cost.

 

The content calendar is the best way to see the timing of all your projects in one place and stay on top of your expanded marketing efforts. 

 

Everything is content. Content is everything.

Use our marketing calendar as a game plan or create and personalize your own following our lead. The content calendar is easy-to-use and fully customizable to fit within your busy schedule.

 

BLOGGING

BASICS

Write shareable, engaging blog posts that bring new audiences to you. We help you personalize your message with SEO-friendly content with five key topic categories and hundreds of SEO-building keywords.

 

No matter how frequent you have time to blog, we will provide you with over 50 topics to choose from so you can get started as quickly as possible.

 

And finally, we'll give you some expert tricks to break up your text with strong subheadings, imagery, and video to keep your readers' attention.

No coding needed.

We teach you to use Medium's free account platform for the purpose of sharing content on social media. This allows you to share content whether you have a website or not. By leveraging Medium’s easy-to-use platform you can avoid learning complicated systems like Wordpress or Drupal and better yet, there is not CMS training or coding needed.

 

EDISON'S GUIDE

TO EMAILS

Often overlooked, one of the most effective marketing strategies is your email list. The email marketing module will give you the tools you need to make the most of your time and answer some of your most important questions.

 

What does a great email look like? How can you create emails that will actually be read? And even better, how can you use emails to grow your business and drive revenue?

 

Email campaigns work perfectly alongside social media, blogging, and other promotional campaigns in the content calendar so you know just when to send - and we use Mailchimp's free email platform so you can stretch every advertising dollar. 

Open, read, forward.
