First, let's start with a few questions that you should be asking yourself before you're ready to begin diving into holiday content planning. This will help you figure out what you want your blog to look like during the holiday season, what type of content to share, and which types of campaigns you want to prioritize over others.
Questions to Ask Yourself When Planning Holiday Content
- How many sponsored posts do I plan to have this holiday season?
- How many brands will I be working with and in which categories?
- Will I have a specific content schedule for each day of the week?
- How many giveaways, gift guides, and travel guides am I planning to include?
Once you've asked yourself the questions above, you can start diving into our new holiday editorial calendar below to begin scheduling and planning out your holiday content! Each section will allow you to seamlessly plan for the holidays, and schedule any upcoming content for the months ahead. We've broken it down into four sections for each day of the week: your post category, post type (blog, IG, Facebook), holiday hashtags to use, and a section for specific goals for your content.
