Your Marketing and Design Reading for The Weekend
This was my mindset when scrolling through the latest collection of articles and blog posts.
I always have a list of topics and distribute project lists for the week so we can discuss them. And we talk about our respective projects, challenges and accomplishments.
However, I'm going to start jotting down a brief agenda so the team can see it in advance. Plus, we haven't been discussing metrics every week and that should certainly be part of our conversation. Despite being in the middle of a very busy time of year, there's no reason why we can't make improvements to the way we function as a team.
When it feels like you are being hit by a wall of requests, it can be hard to tackle the tasks that have to be done consistently and at regular intervals. I'm fortunate to work with great people that prevent me from missing things (okay, I admit that sometimes the pace is so fast and furious, even they can't help!). This Hubspot post inspired us to immediately start drafting a schedule for our tweets, Facebook posts, LinkedIn updates and so on. I especially like the Content Repository because it facilitates publishing a balance of content, rather than always sending links to blog posts.
