A marketing calendar is not just a tracker of dates but a powerful map for crafting content with strategic timing. Well-timed content can cut through the digital clutter and, in 2024, nothing accomplishes that goal quite like video.

The reason? Video captures attention, evokes emotion, and delivers messages in a way that text and images alone cannot. That's why our content marketing calendar for 2024 is designed with a sharp focus on video marketing.

We've collected the key dates for your 2024 marketing campaigns, along with some proven tips to get your video marketing ideas flowing. Now, you can focus on what you do best: firing up the Clipchamp video editor and creating eye-catching social media videos!

What is a content calendar?

It’s a social media content plan that outlines all your upcoming posts, their significant dates, events, sales, goals, and captions. The real magic of a content calendar lies in its ability to transform timing into opportunity. It ensures that your video marketing efforts on social media are not just seen but felt, turning every post into a moment of meaningful engagement. Plan your calendar to capture potential buyers at peak interest, make connections with followers globally, or tap into the zeitgeist of trending topics.
