Successful Marketers! Can You Take Us Through a Standard Day?

13 replies
I think a good learning tool for many of us is just to see how your day goes on the regular. Do you workout? Do you build links? What does your regular day look like?

    1. Work out - I always work out before I work because it relaxes me, energizes me, and gets me focused.

    2. Stat checks - I always login to all my accounts to check stats and see how all my projects are performing. Like clickbank, serpfox, WMT, callfire, userstats, etc etc.

    3. Action plan - I make action plans in ms word and print them out, then tac them on my wall by my pc. They are basically all my projects, and what I have to do from beginning to end. I usually alternate projects on different days too. Like one day I'll work on Clickbank, whether its making videos, keyword research, turning on GSA or outsourcing backlinks... another day it'll be my local sites, which is mostly just content generation and conversion optimization. I never mess with SEO for my local sites since its always turned on (outsourced). For clickbank SEO is done differently. Once I get a certain level of ranking and backlinks, I usually shut off SEO and go on to my next project.

    4. Update action plan - Once all my work is done, I check off things, then make updates and changes. Like if I've been working on a project for a certain period of time, and its not profitable, I might scratch it off the list and add a new project. I have no real criteria for all this stuff its all done intuitively.

    5. Live life - Cook food / play with dog / go shopping / read / make music / do yard work / go out and do something / etc etc etc.

    Thats basically it.

    A successful day in marketing means you have truly helped someone and have made more sales (or at least gotten more people into a funnel of some kind). Those 2 things should go hand in hand. If the business model is solid, it will actually benefit the customer/business (if it's business to business).

    Whether it's in my day job (I work in marketing and consider what I do very successful) or in my own online business, I'm always thinking backwards.

    In order to get people to an end result or a variation of an end result, how can I creatively bring people through a process. After the thought process cause implementation, which can be time consuming. I prefer managing teams/vendors rather than doing all the work myself, but a lot of that has to do with the business model and where you're at in business.

    As far as daily life, I think it's always healthy to have some level of exercise throughout the week. Personally, I lift weights. I've also gotten better about getting more sleep, but marketers tend to be ideas people (so we can have a tough time falling to sleep sometimes). And then there's a need to just take breaks here and there throughout the day. I learned a while back that trying to go, go, go actually makes me less productive.

    I know that's a very general (not specific answer), but hopefully it helps to bring a unique perspective.

    It seems as if everybody who replied works out

    Anyway, I'm not a successful IM. So here's the daily schedule of an UNsuccessful (thus far) IM.

    1. Wake up (duh...)
    2. Check e-mails.
    3. Respond to new orders (if any).
    4. Eat chicken.
    5. Coffee.
    6. More chicken.
    7. More coffee.
    8. Check website traffic stats.
    9. Check list stats.
    10. WarriorForum!!!
    11. Social media (as in, my website's social profile, not my own )
    12. Complete orders (if any).
    13. Create blog post.
    14. Write follow-up messages for e-mail list.
    15. Work on product.
    16. Read other blogs in my niche, comment, build relationships, possibly even guest post.
    17. How about one more round of chicken & coffee?

    Hope this helped...although I'm not sure how it does (apart from saying that UNsuccessful IMs eat a lot of chicken...)

    Regards,
    Chicken Lover.
