Manage Your Time – 3 Easy Steps

Do you work as an internet marketer? Whether you advertise and market websites, products, services, or blogs for clients or if internet marketing is one of the many hats you wear working for yourself, time management is key. Your income levels depend on your ability not only to market a website, product or service, but do so in a quick and effective matter.

One of the many time management mistakes new internet marketers make is jumping right into work. There are benefits in doing this, it could get you a head start, but think longer-term. Without having a plan, you may later find yourself unorganised, irritated and behind schedule.

To avoid this, take the three easy steps described below. Implement these properly and they can improve your internet marketing skills and produce effective, profitable results.

1 – Think

Brainstorming or thinking is vital to success for a new or in fact experienced internet marketer. If you are still learning the trade, you may know that search engine optimization is a good way to market a website, but do you know about article directories and the use of back links? If not, valuable moneymaking opportunities are being missed.

Don't forget to Think
Thinking can cause serious brain damage

Therefore, make time to think and do some research. Brainstorm ways to market. Once you have a set of tasks in mind, start to plan your day.

2 – Plan

Many people stop planning once the brainstorm phase is finished. This could be a costly mistake. Ideally you should have a set of tasks in mind for the day, but it will not help if your time management skills are not good. To start, create a to-do list or a detailed schedule. This can be done by hand or using a computer program.

Take the tasks developed in the brainstorming session and put them in order. It is usually better to start with the easiest, such as posting on related messages boards with a link attached in your signature. Then move onto more complicated forms of internet marketing, such as writing content optimised with keywords for the search engines.

If may help to create a detailed schedule. Give yourself specific blocks of time to complete each task. For example, do you belong to a forum or group where you can advertise your eBook in your signature? Create a specific block of time to complete this task, such as 30 minutes or from 10:00am until 10:30 am.

3 – Execute

The final step is to execute. Many people assume this to be the easiest step, but it isn’t. Many home based workers find themselves distracted when executing an internet marketing plan or to-do list. It is easy to fall victim to distractions such as reading the news online, checking email or instant messaging with friends and family.

When executing an internet marketing plan, it is vital to stay focused and on task. For this reason a detailed schedule is to be preferred. On your schedule, allocate specific blocks of time for specific tasks. If necessary, set an alarm of some description to warn you when your time is about to expire.

The easiest way to execute an internet marketing plan without falling victim to distractions is to avoid them. Therefor, turn the television off, shutoff your instant messaging program, your phone and so on. When distractions are eliminated, you will find it easier to execute your daily tasks.

Internet marketing is a great way to work from home because your income depends on your success and your ability to manage your time. This is an amazing and rare opportunity. For that reason, implement the three steps above to ensure you make money from home, not lose it.
