Productivity tips for PR and marketing professionals
by Eddie Infante
Working PR and marketing professionals are often tasked with several assignments at one time, which usually all have different deadlines and requirements. But don’t stress out just yet; I have found three simple tips to help increase your overall productivity.
1) Get the seven to eight hours of recommended sleep daily.
While this may seem like a very simple tip, most working professionals don’t get nearly as much sleep as is recommended. When we sleep, our bodies recharge from the stress of the day and prepare us for the next. By getting the recommended amount of sleep daily, you can strengthen the immune system and help retain your memory. Not to mention, how alert and energized you will feel in the morning.
2) Plan out and prioritize
PR and marketing professionals can be tasked with multiple assignments at any given moment. It’s important to begin each day by planning out everything that needs to be done and rank them in order of urgency. We sometimes spend too much time overthinking about a particular task that didn’t require that much for us. By blocking out your time for the day, you can ensure the more important tasks get done, all while also finding time to complete the minor tasks as well.
3) Technology exists, use it!
There have been many new innovations that make communication and task management in a workplace so much more accessible. End the countless back and forth of a long email chain by using websites such as Google Docs and Dropbox. These websites allow you to create, edit and share documents in real time with the rest of your team.
These tips can ensure that you are more productive and time-efficient in the workplace as a public relations or marketing professional. Have any other tips? Please feel free to leave them in the comments down below.
