Managing social media is a tricky process that many companies struggle with. Getting all the platforms, messages, images, hashtags and other details on one page that can be shared and updated by multiple team members sounds too good to be true. But with Google Sheets, we can create a calendar that you can customize to suit your needs. By the end of this project, you will be able to create a calendar that can organize your social media postings, assign tasks, and make it easier for you to plan the assets you will need to have a highly effective social media marketing effort. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North American region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
