Although it is one of the most exciting times to be a marketer, it’s also one of the toughest.
Marketing is more complex than ever before thanks to the vast number of channels and platforms available to us today. And the landscape keeps shifting on a weekly basis so it can be incredibly difficult to keep up.
Not to mention, marketers are expected to take on more than ever before and often with the same amount of resources. To say that marketers are stretched thin would be an understatement.
It begs the question – How do you get it all done?
How do you stay on top of the trends without losing focus on your strategy?
How do work smarter, not harder?
That’s what we discuss in today’s episode of The Marketing Huddle.
Although we can’t wave a magic wand to give you more staff members, we can give you some of our best productivity tips to help you focus your energy on the right tasks so you can get more work done that matters.
Here’s what we talk about on the show:
- How to decide which marketing tasks to tackle first;
- Why multitasking is a myth and you should stop doing it immediately;
- How to combat shiny object syndrome while still allowing time to explore new possibilities;
- Why timers and calendars are your best productivity weapons;
- How to carve out time to get key marketing tasks done; and
- Our favorite productivity tools for marketers.
