Time has its value in gold. And the stakes go higher if you’re into marketing. No matter if you’re more into strategic planning or execution of marketing, you still have to be equally creative yet efficient with the limited time you have.
Thankfully, technology is there to the rescue 🙂
Let’s talk about a few secret tips on how you can manage your time better, & thus get better results!
Analyse Your Work
It’s always important to put your thinking cap on. Don’t hesitate to spend a significant amount of time thinking about your chances of closing a deal with customers, the relation you share & the interest shown from their side. After a certain point, it’s wise to focus on fewer prospects expecting them to become cash-cows in the near future. Quality is always more important than quantity.
Also, it’s not a bad idea to spend some time thinking about the efforts v/s results of all your tasks. There will always be a few tasks that take most of your time & give relatively less return. If it comes to that, try to shift your focus more towards the high yielding tasks.
Divide Your Work
Just like your wheels, your marketing engine needs gas too. Unique quality contents, tons of SEO work, user-friendly sites & wise branding are some of the tasks that you need to take care of. Apart from that, there’s the maintenance & review work of analysing the web traffic, visitor behaviors & your unit-acquisition costs.
Most of these tasks fall into two specific categories…
Once you categorize all your tasks into the above two categories, it’ll be a great help if you just punch in all the repeating tasks into a smart Project Management module & let it take care of those. I’m sure it’ll save you at least a few hours of time every week.
