10-Minute Marketing: create a daily marketing schedule

 10-Minute Marketing: create a daily marketing schedule

As a creative person, I often find myself jumping from task to task throughout the day as inspiration strikes. Though creatively-freeing, it’s not always the most productive way to work.

Which is why I bought myself a whiteboard and started planning out my daily marketing activities.

My weekly marketing calendar

  • Monday: Social media: posting, scheduling
  • Tuesday: Blog: writing, commenting, outreach
  • Wednesday: Prospecting: research, outreach, follow-up
  • Thursday: Portfolio: updating, photography
  • Friday: Invoicing/accounting

Now granted, I don’t always follow this schedule. But, having the structure—especially in a visual form—makes it easier to stay on track.

This week’s 10-Minute Marketing task:

Create your daily marketing schedule. Post it prominently in your workspace.
