Project Plan Template (MS Word/Excel Spreadsheets)

Every project needs a plan. Social Media is no different. To make it work you need to see it as a plan. Get a budget, find resources, track activities, and share status reports. That sounds obvious, right?

One way to speed up this process is to invest in a set of project management templates and use these to manage your internet marketing and Social Media projects. If you want to achieve real business goals using social media channels, see it as a large project and develop your roadmap accordingly.

Use this Project Plan template pack (37 page MS Word & 10 MS Excel) to develop your Work Breakdown Structure, Action Item Log, Deliverables List, Gantt Chart, Issue Log, Project Costs, Project Plan (Excel), Project Requirements Checklist, Risk Log, and Roles and Responsibilities matrix.

Use this Project Plan template to guide both project execution and project control, document planning assumptions and decisions, facilitate communication among project stakeholders, and document approved scope, cost, and schedule baselines.
