For the last two weeks I’ve shared my strategic marketing habits that keep you on your “p’s” & “q’s”. In our final edition of this series, I’m giving you a bonus! PRIORITIZE….
Recently, I interviewed a financial expert, Ms. Jillian Verdun-Gilbert. As the financial expert inside The Haute Society, I wanted to talk with her about the importance of maintaining healthy finances and the best way to do that while incorporating one’s productive preferences. One of the challenges she mentioned a lot of her clients having, was a lack of understanding for the financial basics.
PRIORITIZING is a good habit to form when building your brand. It’s important to know the basics of everything in order to understand the order in which EVERYTHING should be placed to achieve success. While building a brand that resonates with your audience, how do you know which comes first, the egg or the chicken?
I can’t answer that question for you, but I can give you a few helpful tips:
First: Know yourself. Know how you like to do things, what motivates you, and what discourages you and takes you off task.
Second: Create templates for activities you do frequently. This will make it easier for you to complete your tasks and ensure consistency in the finished product.
Finally: Prioritize your schedule to reflect the first two tips. While you are making your “to do” list or putting your tasks in your calendar, keep the following in mind:
- How do you like things to be done? Order your schedule in a way that gets you the most satisfaction at the end of your day (or the beginning, whichever floats your boat),
- What discourages you and could keep you from completing your tasks?
- What motivates you and can keep you on task or help you complete the items on your list faster? Some people need those dreaded items to be at the beginning of their schedule to get through them quicker. Doing the more pleasurable things towards the end of the day becomes the reward for completing the tasks you dislike. Just know which you prefer.
- How can you make it easier on yourself? Creating templates is helpful in prioritization. They keep you focused and are just another tool to use to further your success.
Prioritizing is a strategic marketing habit, the BONUS habit, because there is so much involved in building a successful business and the only way to get through it and maintain sanity is to know what needs to be done first and what can wait.
