This week in class we learned everything related to using social media tools to schedule social media campaigns ahead of time, part of this learning involved being knowledgeable of editorial calendars and the type of content that could and should be scheduled to achieve specific target goals. For this week I am presenting you with a HYPOTHETICAL editorial calendar of posts as if I were designing and scheduling content for Disney’s Magic Kingdom Theme Park. It is important to note that this editorial scheduling is only hypothetical and for academic purposes, and not for actual implementation.
The hypothetical schedule will be designed for the month of August 2014 for Magic Kingdom’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. As you would see, many of the post are designed based on the calendar of events for the park that you can find here
I have created two main hypothetical objectives in which I would base the content on the editorial calendar:
- To increase the number of people who visit the Magic Kingdom Park as a consequence of vacation period.
- To increase the traffic of people visiting Magic Kingdom’s website
