Planning facilitates our effective campaigns and guides creative.

The Editorial Calendar

EMC7 integrates Strategy Efforts and Content Types with an editorial calendar, to determine how often and when posts should be made on social properties. Frequency as a variable of efficacy as well as seasonal timing are important considerations. The result is a schedule for the production of creative content/assets and a specific timing for publishing and distribution, all of which embody the EMC7 strategy for our clients.
