When it comes to planning out content for your blog and all of social media, I'm sure one word pops into your mind: overwhelmed.
If the thought of maintaining an editorial calendar and thinking up content ideas makes you want to curl into a ball on the floor, you're not alone!
BUT... IT CAN BE DONE.
With my 20 years of marketing communication (aka content) experience, plus over a decade as a blogger, I've perfected a system to help you plan out a steady stream of content on multiple platforms... that speaks right to your audience.
Content Planning Pro gives you a step-by-step path to coming up with engaging content ideas... in less time than you're spending right now.
You'll learn how to plan content faster and have a never-ending flow of ideas. At the end of this course, you’ll have a solid content calendar and at least a quarter’s worth of content planned out for your blog and social media accounts, not to mention a process that you’ll use over and over again.
What will you learn in Content Planning Pro?
Module 1: Content Planning with an Editorial Calendar
Not all editorial calendars are created equal. Learn EXACTLY how to build a robust, yet not-too-overwhelming calendar using a spreadsheet or Trello. Throughout the course you’ll get videos and tips to maximize the efficiency of each calendar. In this module, you kick off content planning with “small wins.” I’ll show you what they are and how to get them.
Module 2: Generating Your Holy Grail of Big Ideas
Unleash a flood of creative ideas using mind mapping (with a twist). Find out what to look for in Google Analytics and elsewhere in order to brainstorm your best content ideas for your blog and social media platforms.
Module 3: Planning Out Your Content Ideas
This isn’t just about plopping ideas down into your editorial calendar. See how simple it is to not only come up with blog post and social media content ideas, but get more ideas from content already sitting in your lap. You’ll also learn a snazzy, yet simple way to run an idea bank for endless idea safe-keeping.
What will you get in Content Planning Pro?
- 15 video tutorials
- 2 calendar templates: spreadsheet and Trello (free version)
- Idea bank template in Trello
- Evergreen promotion spreadsheet template
3 handouts to help you master the planning process

About the instructor
Well hey there. I’m Mel, side hustler and marketing pro. Author of Blog Design for Dummies. And creator of Blog Clarity.
As a marketer for over 20 years (and a blogger for 10+ of them), I know how to build and plan content that reaches the right audience and turns them into raving fans. For the last 8 years, I’ve worked at Burt’s Bees, currently as the Associate Manager of Brand Engagement, Social Strategy (that's a mouthful I know).
Back in 2010, I was a year into blogging just as a hobby. It was a “mom blog,” but once a week I’d share tips for bloggers. Turns out my readers cared more about that than the adventures with my kids!
Then… I got laid off. At that point, I took the leap to start Blog Clarity, turning my professional experience into actionable, can-do strategies, tips, and tutorials for peeps like you. Now, I've taught over 6,000 students how to do BIG things with their online business.
