How do you keep track of it all????

9 replies
I've purchased a few traffic courses over the past year and I've found it to be very difficult to keep track of all the things I need to do. First there's building the site, applying SEO to it, developing content, article marketing, adwords, video, audio, etc... etc...

How do you guys keep track of it all. I'd like to outsource some of this as I'm sure some of you do so monitoring activity could be tedious. I've created spreadsheet checklists but that is hard to share... There are password and usernames galore...

Just looking for some feedback. Does anyone else feel as though "the process" can be tough to stay on top of? How do you handle it?

    Methinks the process is impossible for one person to stay on top of. And I've been trying.

    I'm coming to the conclusion that you should decide what your core functions are--what you must do yourself and what you most want to do yourself--and outsource everything else.

    I can't give you any more specific advice, though. I am just now beginning to investigate outsourcing.

  • Hi Mate,

    A Checklist is the best solution. If you want to share
    the checklist, use rememberthemilk.com

    And for storing your passwords use roboform.

    Hope that helps.

    Take Care,

    I still manage what I do the old-fashioned way, believe it or not, with notebooks and pencils. I can't do everything that way, but I've found writing things down helps me remember them moreso than if I just copy and paste something somewhere.

    And if it's in my brain - it gets done.

    I like to use evernote to pay attention of what i need to do. I'm learning that outsourcing makes life a lot easier.

    I am posting while working for a company, or else I would use my name as my username. Yeah...they stalk my name.

    I do the notebook and pencil way to make sure I have everything. I also use desktop notepad so that I can access details for daily use. And for forms, you can use roboform. They are good at that.
    But for you to make it a lot easier, get somebody to do it. You can outsource a VA to keep track of it.


    Let me know if I can help you Warrior to Warrior.

    Good luck

    I have about 10 folders full of hundreds of .txt files, spreadsheets and programs....

    It can be hectic, but thats the only way. Can you imagine if you didnt have windows and had to keep up with everything on stickynotes or a notepad? Be thankful

    Name all your folders properly and accordingly.. Put the date on the folders... 5-30-12 ... Put date on text files... Group everything accordingly..

    Try to organize your desktop and everything every 1 to 2 weeks.

    It's tough but I manage.

    Just like life. Organize in a way that makes sense to you and stick with it. Do not get too spread out and keep things closely related. The problem I have is when my computer crashes and have to start all over boo

    Just choose any one of those method and experiment with it. If you succeed - you got one working mtethod in your arsenal you can scale up, if you fail - no worries, just move to the next and thus until you find the one that works for you.
