2 Simple Ways For Digital Marketers To Track, Save And Manage Their Time Online
Whether you’re a starting entrepreneur, a freelancer managing your blog and social media accounts on your own, or you’re a digital marketer who works on digitally promoting other people’s businesses, working on digital media for business takes a lot of your time. In fact, you’ve probably found that, while your tasks, in general, may not be too tedious or time-consuming after you actually sit down to complete those tasks, then time simply flies and you get up realizing you have plenty more tasks left to complete.
Well, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Every digital marketer, at any stage of expertise, has this problem happen quite a bit. Hence, to help you manage your digital marketing tasks more efficiently (and thereby save a big chunk of your time), here are two simple steps that will help you save more time than you’d think:
1) Track the time you take on various online tasks
The sad truth is that, since many online tasks seem simple and even mind-numbingly tedious (like when you’re scheduling ready posts on various social media sites and blogs for the entire month or week), we underestimate how much time such tasks can take. Hence, start by checking the time at when you start such a task, focus on completing that task alone, and then check the time you’ve taken. This will give you an idea of how to schedule your time and how often you should do a particular digital marketing task.
2) Set a time limit for each task
Now that you know how much time you need for each task, set up an alarm or countdown timer app that will let you know when to end that particular task. In addition to making sure you don’t exceed your schedule, such a setup also develops a psychological sense of urgency that you will act upon.
