Sometimes it can seem almost impossible to stay focused at work. The phone’s ringing off the hook, the office dog is barking at anyone that dares to walk into the office and your co-workers are chatting about what they’re having for lunch (a daily occurrence).
But all hope isn’t lost! We have written down our favourite ways of staying on top of things, especially when it comes to social media management.
Keep Track Of All Tasks
One fool-proof way of keeping track of all your tasks each day is to keep it written down. If you write down each task that you know you’ll be doing on paper, it’ll make it easier to stay on track throughout the day.
For those who are visual learners, this is an absolute must. Writing lists is almost as cathartic as ticking items off your list, so we recommend doing this each day.
Stay In Touch With Colleagues
Communication between colleagues can be an issue within workplaces. Mainly, the lack of communication is where the issue begins! We suggest setting up different communication platforms for everyone in the office to use.
Implementing the use of in-office messaging platforms such as Slack will help you keep track of what tasks you’ve all gotten done. It can also eliminate the need for distractions such as email and Facebook.
Stick to the Schedule
When it comes to social media management, you always need to make sure that you organise your tasks ahead of time. This means scheduling your posts for the week rather than doing it each day.
Posting ad-hoc comes with an array of complications, like running out of things to post or struggling to find the time to post in your busy day! Scheduling your posts ahead of time can save you time in the long run. Try using post scheduling platforms like Sprout Social, Hootsuite, etc.
Know Where You Need To Be
Keeping things written down here and there can become confusing. Making sure that you’re putting this information in one place will help you keep organised. Some people like to write this stuff down, or even keep track of it online.
For example, you could make use of keeping a planner. You can grab these at all stationary shops. They’re perfect for keeping notes, meeting dates and deadlines all in one place. If you prefer a paperless route, you could also opt for online platforms such as Trello. This easy-to-use platform can help you to categorise your meetings, tasks, deadlines and can even tag people in certain tasks if you’re working on group projects.
