In the last post, we talked about the importance of prioritizing your Internet marketing tasks. In this post, I’m going to share a sample schedule for Internet marketing tasks that you can use to get ideas for your own.
Even if you only sell one product or a service online, internet marketing is a must if you want to turn a profit. Remember, you won’t make sales if consumers don’t know you exist.
As previously stated, it’s important to incorporate internet marketing into your daily to-list. In fact, you will want to do more than that. Internet marketing is such as huge component of selling a product or service online, devote a lot of time to it. At least once a week, have a day where you do nothing but market or advertise online.
If you aren’t technically classified as an internet marketer, but still need to do the job, you may be looking for guidance. After all, an entire workday is a lot of time to devote to a subject you may be unfamiliar with. This does not mean that you can simply skip internet marketing or give it less attention. It means that you need to develop a daily and detailed schedule.
When creating a daily detailed schedule, start with blocks of time. It’s best to start with one hour. During the first hour of your workday, list an internet marketing task or two to complete. For the next hour, move onto a new task. A schedule not only helps you stay focused and on task, but it enables you to devote time to multiple internet marketing tactics, as opposed to focusing solely on one.
So, what should your internet marketing schedule look like for the day?
– 9am to 10am
Write, proofread, and submit one 500-word article to a directory
– 10am to 11am
Write a blog post, Facebook article or tweets to showcase your product.
– 11am to 12pm
Design a banner for upcoming advertising slots.
Research page rank and popularity of websites. Inquire about advertising rates.
– 12pm to 1pm
Create social images to share on Instagram or Pinterest
Take a break for lunch.
– 1pm to 3pm
Create keyword optimized content and update your website with that content.
– 3pm to 4pm
Connect with consumers on social media.
Search for questions to answer with keywords, #hashtags and @replies.
– 4pm to 5pm
Review internet marketing forums; look for new marketing ideas.
Finish up lose end projects.
Create a to-do list for tomorrow.
While this was just that, a sample, hopefully the steps outlined will give you some good ideas for your own schedule. Don’t get upset if you can’t adhere to it strictly. The best way to improve your use of time is with practice. Also, allow yourself some flex time to your schedule for those unexpected jobs that can pop up.
