This social media template template will show what is and isn’t working on social media—and what to do next. It’s also handy for identifying impostor accounts, out-of-date profiles, and new opportunities to engage your audience.
Gathering these insights will help you get the most out of your social marketing budget and resources.
Another type of social media template favored by social media pros is the editorial content calendar.
It compiles all your content projects into one document to help you plan and schedule each release.
The easiest way to organize a content calendar is by using a separate tab for each month within Google Sheets or an Excel spreadsheet. Activities can be broken down by day or hour, depending on the volume and cadence of your publishing schedule.
Your editorial calendar should include basic information about each of these projects:
Title or description of the content
Links to supporting documents, like content briefs
This social media template is for presenting results to your boss, clients, teammates, or any other stakeholder.
Yes, it will include hard data captured in the analytics report template. But, it also includes space for context and analysis. Both are important to include when presenting to people who aren’t as close to social media as you are.
Use this template to make recommendations, share lessons learned, and make recommendations for future tactics.
Unfortunately Excel often causes formatting issues, so we don’t recommend using it to build your spreadsheet. We prefer using Google Sheets for creating CSV files. You can also use TextEdit (1.7+) or TextWrangler.
Note: If you decide to use Excel, you’ll need to tell Excel that that data in column is text and not to be changed or it will try to convert your dates into a different display that will fail your upload.
This template is for freelance social media professionals and social media agencies.
A social media marketing proposal is a document in which you propose a set of social media marketing services for a potential client. You’ll outline the specifics of the work you propose to do for the client, including a timeline and budget and how you plan to work together.

An Instagram carousel is a post with multiple photos or videos that can be viewed by swiping or clicking left. Up to 10 images or videos can be added and shared as a single post on the feed. They get, on average, 1.4x more reach and 3.1x more engagement than regular posts on Instagram.

Instagram presets are predefined edits that allow you to transform images in a single click. In other words, they’re fancy filters—like the ones in your Instagram app, except better. These presets can be downloaded on your computer or phone using Lightroom (a popular photo editing app).
When someone visits your Facebook page, the first thing they see is a large splash image taking up almost a quarter of the screen: your Facebook cover photo. This is your profile’s headline, a big, bold banner image that introduces your brand to potential Facebook followers.
