How To Increase Your Internet Marketing Productivity Overnight

27 replies
Hey everybody,

I wanted to share a tip that can potentially increase your marketing goals overnight!

Ready?

Okay, this tip I actually learned from a sales guy, but it still applies.

This may be a bit obvious, but it works for me!

1)You basically create a schedule of everything you need to do each day.

Writing your thoughts on paper can release the load on everything on your mind, which may help you think more clearly on your internet marketing goals.

2) The next tip is to create a star on the tasks that you want to focus on that day.


Trust me! In my experience, this helps a LOT! It should help you gain some good flow in the way you go about your schedule. NO, I'm not telling you to be so very very specific; but getting your intentions down on paper has a way of those actions being accomplished
very much more smoothly! Keep reading for tip 3!


3) Create a top 10 that will have the greatest factor in progressing in your goals. Then circle a further top three from that top 10 list and focus on them!

An important part of internet marketing, is to spend your time not only on the 'right'' tasks but the most important.

We all need a focus factor too, and I believe these tips can help you move forward, no matter what's your marketing plan!

How do you schedule out your tasks? Any tips to add?

    The most important is #3

    However, I want to point out one KEY FACTOR for success...

    You don't have to spend FOREVER doing stuff...

    Give yourself tight deadlines and you'd be surprised at how much PRODUCTIVITY you can squeeze into a short block of time.

      I bribe myself- and you'd be amazed how well it works. For example, if I finish something I'm working on right now by 9, then I'm going to watch a movie with the kids. If I goof off though, then I'm going to finish something else tonight as well.

        Great tip must give this a try. If I don't end up with a few rewards here and there then I need to step up my game, so either way I will earn something or learn something.

      I agree, #3 is what I consider most important!

    Thanks for these productivity tips

    I think that the number one mistake that every internet marketer do while building an online business is Procrastination And even those that don't procrastinate may have bad habits that lead to poor productivity and a general waste of time.

    Actually, I been doing this recently myself, and whilst I try to keep focused on 1-3 main priorities, what I often find is; in creating that 'focused to-do list' there will often arise other elements that need to be addressed in order to complete say tasks 1-3.

    For example, I decided that it was time I start using some of my White Label (PLR) and I started chiseling away at my 'Top 10 List'.

    I found that to better deliver the products and protect my downloads, I really needed to set up an AWS S3 account, and S3 bucket to house, protect, and deliver the products to buyers.

    That was NOT on my to-do list.

    Then, in asking for some advice, the majority suggest delivering content from within a secure members area, which has led to me having to now configure my 1st membership site set up...

    Again, this was not on my to-do list!

    Point being, in a perfect world - setting a focused to-do priority list is definitely better than flying by the seat of your pants. But, there too... in the instance mentioned above, to-do lists and priorities in this arena never seem to stop demanding more learning, more doing, and more knowledge.

    I agree wholeheartedly, create a list, highlight the priorities, and focus on them... no argument there!

    However, be prepared to change direction, add or detract from that list, because in my experience, half the "to-do lists" I have ever created tend to change up the minute I start applying my focus to complete a project.

      Thanks..

      Yes majority of the time spent may or may not be what will ACTUALLY help you progress the fastest. This way of listing out priorities will make sure you focus on what's most important, then give you more time to "WING" it after your finish the most important tasks.

      Great!

      It really takes a load off your mind when you don't have to remember every little thing you may want to do each day or the next!

      Creating a task list is also important to me.

    I am an old dog doing this stuff , and to be honest I do not have any set plans that map out my day.

    I do certain things and want to accomplish certain things everyday, but nothing written in stone.

    Iam sure this approach can help many, though !!

    Great tips. I learned the power of writing things down, it really does help. I spend just 5-10 minutes each night writing down what I want to accomplish the following day. That way I can start my day off by just taking some action.

    Hi Ashareef,

    I dig that strategy. I am huge on doing what matters and letting go the low energy stuff behind. Like, I do a few things everyday; write another chapter of an eBook so I can publish one weekly on Amazon, write 1000 words to devote to my next blog post, comment on blogs, comment here. The commenting on blogs and here is beyond critical because that's the networking deal, the connecting bit. In truth, creating is super important too.

    Even though I do social media marketing I'm spending less time on these sites. I may pop in for 5 minutes to connect and chat but the creating and connecting through doing 3 or 4 things - eBooks, my blog posts, blog commenting, forum commenting - those are the powerful, business building things that'd be Top 4 on my list.

    Letting go the low effectiveness stuff - for me - has been a hellish struggle in the past but getting clearer on my direction and on my intent has made it easier. Do like 3 or 4 things a day, at that, and do them well, and do them repeatedly, and you'll make an impact. Cash in point; 2 minutes ago a Warrior messaged me explaining how they found my posts to be helpful, and asked for my blog and video channel links. Making an impact. Because I post a bit more thorough than a few Warriors and because I visit here daily, sharing my knowledge freely, because I only need to do a few things over and over to grow my business and to increase my effectiveness.

    Onward and upward!

    I'm with Ryan on this one. Focus on 3 or 4 tasks you know will move your business forward and do them on a daily basis.

    Very good points. I find that tackling some of those top priorities first thing in the morning (by getting up a little earlier than my kids) I'm much more productive for the day. I've already got a momentum going...and ready to tackle the world. **That means staying away from social media where one often gets side-tracked and dwindles time away. Lots of great resources here.

    One app that I recently discovered allows you to jot down all your things to do on a project... and what doesn't get done, gets automatically pushed off to the next day... until you get all those things done for your project. https://www.tomorrow.do/

    add in estimated times you think a task should take.

    if you don't put estimated times, your tasks tend to fill up any available time you have....even if they shouldn't take that long.

    more than that, many of us are guilty of spending 6 hours on something when we had the task basically done and 95% as good in 2 hours as it is in 6. Basically, you usually get a diminishing returns the longer you work on a task.

    Hi Ashareef!

    Nice advice.

    Yes, I definitely agree with you that goals should be written out because it will help you provides focus and motivation. Goal shapes your dreams. It gives us the ability to hone in on the exact actions we need to perform to achieve everything we desire in life.

    Once you have a well defined goal setting, planning and consistent action should be apply.

    The Key Aspects In Goal Setting To Be Effective


    1. Evaluate your situation
    2. Be specific and break it down into small pieces
    3. Goals must be measurable and time sensitive
    4. Write it down
    5. Discipline and more practice

    To your ONE STEP UP!

    Don't be afraid to set STRICT deadlines. These push you forward. Giving yourself slack will soften your resolve and you won't be able to pack as much effort and focus into a small block of time. This is probably the MOST IMPORTANT TIME MANAGEMENT SKILL YOU WILL EVER HAVE TO LEARN.

      This is also very true! I think it's important to set moderate time limits and deadlines, so as long as quality is not lost!

  • Proper management and organization makes a huge difference. Planning ahead leads you to a faster result.

    I personally use Kanban method, which kind of the same as what is outlined here. It words well for me and I was able to really prioritize the things that needed more attention and focus.

    Doing the Kanban method also made me realize that being busy does not always mean being productive

    too complicated for me. The old 80/20 is still working fine for me. I don't think it"s necessary to explain this again here.
    Anyhow thanks for sharing some for bringing stuff.

    Also, to MOTIVATE yourself, you might want to PAD your to-do list with EASY stuff. When you knock out the easy stuff (in between the more challenging items), you get a personal motivation BOOST and this helps you POWER through the stuff you'd rather PROCRASTINATE on.

    Works like a charm for me. Helps you get over WRITERS' BLOCK too.

    I used to use lists and priorities them. I was wicked productive, then I got slack and everything went backwards. Must try harder with the lists.

      A tip for starting those challenging, hard to start tasks: Set a timer for 20 minutes and go for 20 minutes of highly focused, productive, activity. Take a short break and return for another 20 minutes of highly focused, productive, activity. Bite size chunks - make daunting task less daunting.
