Digital Marketers require a highly diverse range of skills in order to carry out their job successfully. The role is more than simple advertising and marketing, but rather involves reporting, copywriting, content strategy, creativity, social media marketing and much, much more. To ensure their job is done to the highest standard, many digital marketers have created habits.
A habit is defined as “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up”.
Below we identify eight habits that are beneficial for a digital marketer to have.
Have a routine
Having your own routine can make tasks easier in the long run. Coming into work without having to stress and plan out half of your tasks will free up your time to concentrate on more important projects.
Aim to get through your toughest projects in the morning
Multiple studies suggest that people are most productive in the morning. Additionally getting your most difficult tasks out of the way early can motivate you and leave you stress-free for the rest of the day.
Workout or Meditate
Contrary to typical assumptions, working out at the start or end of your working day can give you more energy and motivation. A healthy body makes a healthy mind.
Give yourself a head start
If you have tomorrow’s work already scheduled, why not give yourself a head start on this work in the free time you have today.
Track your progress
Without keeping an eye on what you are doing it could be very easy to ‘fall asleep at the wheel’ or just go through the motions. Tracking your progress can help you set targets for yourself and encourage yourself to keep improving rather than stagnate.
Schedule time for generating new ideas
Sometimes you can get so caught up in the routine of working one way that you fail to stop and see if there’s an easier way. The online world is dynamic and full of innovation, failing to capitalize on this innovation can be a huge downfall that could cost you and your team hours of valuable time.
Work with your team to find solutions
It’s amazing what a pair of fresh eyes can see. For the digital marketer copywriting is a key skill and despite double and triple checks of your own work a fresh pair of eyes will always find something you’ve missed.
Engaging in the content of other digital marketers can keep you up to date with trends in the industry. Plus, this will also potentially spark ideas on different ways to do things.
