The Internet Marketing field is an interesting one. A lot of marketers have different routines and their days could consist of a number of daily rituals or habits. I recently saw a post on a marketing forum where members listed what they do on a typical work day from morning to night. I thought it was pretty interesting, so I’ll share with you what I normally do. To make sure I’m as accurate as possible, I kept track of 5 days Monday thru Friday.
8:00am – 9:00am – I usually wake up between these times, depending on how late I was up the night before.
9:00am – Quick breakfast/shower
9:15am – Log on and check some e-mail first thing. I usually have about 25 or so when I wake up.
9:30am – Check Google Analytics and Site Meter stats.
9:35am – 11:30am/12:00pm – Perform various tasks, such as visiting other blogs, reading up on new marketing methods, responding to e-mails, writing posts and articles and checking my favourite message boards.
12:00pm – Lunch, or sometimes I go at 1:00pm if I’m really busy on something.
1:00pm – 3:00pm – Tweak the posts I wrote earlier by adding any additional information I left out. I also work on graphics at this point and put some related images together in Photoshop that will go along with the posts.
3:00pm – 4:00pm – Read other blogs I’ve created shortcuts for and put into a “Daily Blogs” folder. This way I can keep track of the sites I visit the most. This is similar to what I do in the morning, in which I see what other bloggers are blogging about. I find that it’s best to check the main sites twice, once in the morning and then late afternoon to make sure I’m up to date on the latest information.
4:00pm – 5:00pm – Answer some more e-mail and check my stats again to get an idea of how the first part of the day went.
5:00pm – 12:00am (midnight) – This part of my day usually consists of personal time – watching TV, having dinner or doing errands. Midnight is usually when I check DealDotCom and then go to bed.
What does your day usually entail? Let me know in the comments.
