Time management tools for managing marketing

  1. Categorise tasks as per importance – Having a zillion tasks to do on a daily basis as a marketing professional, and trying to prioritise these according to importance can get overwhelming. Firstly, make a list of important tasks that need strategic thinking and will help your company move forward. Then, make a list of activities that have to be done on a routine basis like getting reports, making courtesy calls to customers and troubleshooting problems.
  1. Get up early – You can get a lot more things done during the early morning when there are no diversions. Mornings are a great time for creative thinking and you will be able to complete tasks much faster.

  1. Have a contingency plan – If you find that completing work as per regular schedule is not possible and you are constantly shuffling tasks, try to have a contingency plan in place which can manage unscheduled tasks that can play havoc with daily tasks. Contingency plans like these will help you become a good manager and complete all your important tasks on time.
  1. Take time off to carry out priority tasks alone – When you are busy completing priority tasks, try to keep other things at bay, which will help you, concentrate on the task at hand. Once these are complete, move on to the tasks with lesser priority and take the assistance of others wherever required. This period is most appropriate for you to multitask and also interact with others in the office.
  1. Understand your limitations – In your excitement to manage multiple tasks, do not over exert yourself so that you do not have any energy left at the end of the day. Begin to pay attention towards activities that make you energised and the ones that pull you down so you can mix both and not exhaust yourself unnecessarily. When you feel that unscheduled activities are cutting down on your regular tasks, learn to avoid them instead of regretting when they are not accomplished.

Keeping customers happy is important but not looking for new ones will leave you with limited markets, which may dry up over a period of time.
