Time management schedules play a key role in any business in order to become successful. In making my own schedule, I have always wondered how other internet marketers constructed their tasks in order to successfully complete all the needs of their clients’ websites. So I asked a few of the top people in the seo / internet marketing industry what their weekly schedule looks like on a regular Monday thru Friday work week.
Here is what some of the most influential marketers said regarding their weekly time management schedules. Please feel free to add your schedule in the comments as I would love to see how not only how we all compare but how we all can improve our time management.
You will see there is a big variance between what we all do as internet marketers to get our jobs done. Don’t be shy and share your schedule in the comments below. We can all learn from this!
Daily – Check email, Check client search engine rankings, Read seo news on twitter
Monday – Link Building
Tuesday – Sales calls, Appointments, Audits, Proposals, Presentations
Wednesday – Create client blog posts, Publish client blog posts, Share client blog posts on social networks, Publish and share personal blog post
Thursday – Catch up on work not done for the week, Sales calls, Appointments, Audits, Proposals, Presentations
Friday – Write personal blog, Catch up on work not done for the week
Here’s what I’ve been trying in the New Year.
M-F’s are all largely the same;
7-10am – client work
10-11am – admin/emails/catch up on industry reading
11-12 – lunch
12-5 – scheduled calls/meetings or additional blocks of client work
9pm-12 – a mix of – admin/personal work/moz Q&A/industry reading.
Only regular deviation from that – Tuesday 3-8pm I teach piano and drum lessons.
Here ya go! Thanks for including me…
Kaiser The Sage
My job at our company is focused on three things this year – marketing, client acquisition and strategy development.
Anyway, here’s a rough draft of my week:
Monday: responding to emails is my most important task on the start of any week. I receive tons of emails (even on weekends), so this day is where I can set the tone of my entire week, in which I can identify high-priority tasks and delegate tasks as well.
Tuesday – Thursday: emails (I spend about 1 – 2 hours at most), client meetings (1 – 3 hours, depends on the number of meetings and consultations set in a day), research (for client consultations, strategies to implement for our campaigns and for my own content development on Kaiserthesage), creating content (usually takes me 8+ hours to finish a post, so the day where I can write depends on my schedule for the week), and project briefings (this is where our team brainstorms, in which I can share the strategies I’ve come up with through my research).
Friday: emails, research, team meeting and training our staff.
Aligning the team with our vision and to work on the bigger picture is also a huge part of my role. So this year is going to be really tough for me. Though I’m really excited to see how much I can grow with these new levels of tasks I’ve chosen to focus on.
Thanks for the opportunity and have a great week man!
