Marketing calendar – Is it mandatory? What to include in the calendar?

A marketing calendar is a document that outlines the marketing strategy for a company. It includes all the major events, campaigns, and dates. Marketing calendars are important because they keep marketers on track and help them plan their strategy in advance.

Some of the most important aspects of a marketing calendar are:

  • The different types of content to be published (e.g., blog posts, social media posts, videos, etc.)
  • The frequency at which each type of content should be published
  • The specific goals for each type of content (e.g., increase website traffic)
  • The budget for each type of content
  • Deadlines for copywriters, designers, ad managers, etc.

But, here’s a unique addition that we incorporate in Marketing Calendars for all our Clients: Brand Overview.
