Social Media Content Calendar

Project Details

What We Need
  • A 4-week content calendar for one social media platform, including graphics & copy (12-20 posts, or as agreed upon by both parties)
  • A content calendar template that can be used to plan out posts in the future
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have post ideas/materials, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have recyclable content, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to support, educate, and advocate for mental illnesses in other ways. Our budget is extremely limited, and this would help us reach people where they are right now and communicate how we can help.

I work with NAMI Ramsey County and NAMI Washington County, affiliates of NAMI Minnesota. They both have Facebook & Twitter, but no calendar or direction. It's a bit like shouting into the void. With everything being online these days, we really need to find our voice via these channels. I think with some strategy and a developed process, our content would improve, people would connect with our organization, and time would be saved and spent elsewhere.

Project Plan
