The Ultimate Content Planning Workshop

The Ultimate Content Planning Workshop

By John Jantsch

Marketing Podcast with John Jantsch

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I’m going to be talking about the final part of a three-part solo show Marketing Hourglass series I’m doing. In part one, I talked about the customer journey and the marketing hourglass. In part two, I discussed creating content that powers each stage of the customer journey. Then in part three, I’m wrapping up the series with what I’m calling a content planning workshop. Here’s part three.

Key Takeaway:

Waking up on Monday and deciding what to write about on your blog is not a content strategy. Content is such an essential element in the marketing puzzle you must plan your content like you might your promotional calendar or budget for the year.

Taking a strategic view of content means you must understand the body of work you need to create over time to turn your content efforts into an asset that will serve your business long-term. In this episode, I’m wrapping up the Marketing Hourglass series with a content planning workshop. I’m covering how to plan your content the right way to align with business goals, objectives, and the customer journey.

Discussion points:

  • [1:12] The right content can power every aspect of the Marketing Hourglass
  • [3:21] Content planning starts with coming up with monthly themes and creating a global sketch
  • [4:27] What your content should be about
  • [6:27] Breaking down your year to quarterly objectives and priorities
  • [7:30] Example content objectives
  • [9:12] Planning your content by quarter that supports your set objectives
  • [11:59] Crafting your monthly content calendar
  • [12:56] Planning makes it easier to delegate
  • [13:31] The success of the plan depends on measurement and if your content is moving you towards your goal
