On a daily basis, organising your blog content – photos, videos and references – is an overwhelming task, especially when you want to keep your posts schedule consistent and optimize your time. I’ve encountered this problem myself and today I use these 3 online tools to help me maintain productivity.
Airtable is a project management platform with templates for all types of projects. In the Blog Editorial Calendar, you can store a lot of information about your content, including post schedules, associated links and files, and more. My favourite feature for blog content on this platform is that I can customise the way that I want to see all of this information. I can select the option to view posts in a calendar format (amazing feature for those are visual, like me!) or according to the stage of production.
The good thing about having a variety of templates is you don’t spend a lot of time setting up a new project. This saves time, makes your life easier and helps you keep your posting schedule.
If there’s something that saved my life this year, it would have to be Wunderlist. Do you know when you are on the way to someplace and you suddenly remember something important? When that happens with me I usually add a note on my phone or on a piece of paper. But I never had a place to store it all in one spot. With Wunderlist I can divide the tasks by category – home, blog, personal, or anything else – and include reminders and deadlines. Also, you can add subtasks that make it easier to see your progress.
It’s so versatile that I use it to organize my blog tasks, marketing campaigns for customers and even my shopping lists.
Promoting your blog content on different social media platforms demands a lot of time. If you have everything on one platform it will save you a lot of work. With Etus, I can schedule posts and review results on Facebook, Instagram (Feed and Stories), Linkedin and Pinterest.
I work as a digital marketing specialist and with my first customers, I used to do the reports by hand, counting each interaction. Imagine the time that I spent on that! Now I have all the information I need in one place.
BONUS: As a visual person, I love to take notes, use visual aids like colours and stickers. 2019 is the first year that I will use a content planner. I’ll keep you updated about this experience!😉😉😉

Never heard of any of these until now. Very informative for me.
Thanks! Let me know if you try some of them!
I have never heard of these tools! I always feel so unorganized with everything that is in my mind for the blog. I usually use Trello, which I LOVE, but these look like they are worth checking out. Thanks!
I understand what you mean. I felt that way too. I tried Trello but I was spending a lot of time just to set up it. If you try one of these tools, let me know! I would love to know your experience about it!
I’ve been planning to organize things better for my blog! Never heard of these. So helpful! Thank you 🙂
Cool! I’m happy to know it! Go for it in 2019! 😉
Hhhmmm….Wunderlust looks like it will do best for me! Thanks for sharing.
Ohh these sound great! My downfall is managing all of my social media profiles so the last one sounds perfect!
For me too! It was driving me crazy because it social media platform has a different way of management. I think you would like Etus.
