“Managing your time and staying organized are valuable benefit when running a productive office, managing clients and a successful social media campaign.” – The Social Market LLC
With January coming to a close, I wanted to highlight “Get Organized Month“. For several years, I wrote about organizing. One of the most valuable pieces of knowledge I value from that experience, is having learned that organizing is a process not a product… things looking organized and maintaining a system [especially if the system is not yours] are NOT the same thing!
Week 3. GET ORGANIZED
I thought I would share a couple of motivational tips for an organized office, productive schedule and a well-managed social media management system:
I am addicted to planners! I have a personal planner, a business planner, planners which I just like to look and planners I make. I love my planners to help capture the weeks and months to come. However, one of the best tools I have found for actually getting tasks done is a weekly list on my desk. I use a printable much like one from Invincible Inc.. (I can usually find mine at Big Lots.)
Prioritizing will make you more productive. Assess your to-do list and prioritize the top 2-3 things on your list. Mark them clearly (using numbers, stars, etc.) to indicate which tasks need to be accomplished first each day. The Incremental Life has several additional productivity tips and self-management.
Keep big projects visible. Display important events, due-dates or to-do lists on hanging clip boards. I use this system in my office and I love it! Martha Stewart’s clip board wall is a great example.
When organizing multiple social media profiles, management platforms such as HootSuite and Slack Social can improve your productivity. Using platforms like these allows you to put profiles in one place, schedule posts across multiple networks and easily measure results. (HootSuite is FREE up to 3 profiles.)
