Recurring Tasks For Digital Marketers

December 7, 2013

“Success is the sum of small efforts — repeated day in and day out.” — Robert Collier

Recurring tasks are tasks that you create once, and then have it recreated automatically after a designated period of time.

After speaking to our customers I have realized that marketers use a ton of recurring tasks.

  • Analyze your Twitter feeds every day.
  • Make a payment to your freelancer on the 5th of every month.
  • Receive payments from all your clients on the 10th, 15th and 30th of every month.
  • Check on social media profiles for all clients every Friday.
  • Prepare Google Analytics reports every Monday
  • Prepare a content strategy at the start of every month.
  • Send an email newsletter every month.
  • Send a weekly report to your clients every Friday.
  • Send key metrics to clients every quarter.
  • Plan a company retreat every six months.

It’s also super simple to add a recurring task in Brightpod.

With recurring tasks, you can just enter a task saying, “Check Google Analytics everyday” and it’ll automatically add the task everyday after you’ve ticked it off your daily to-do list.

Just create a task followed by “every” and one of the following: day/ week/ weekday/ month/ year/ Monday/ Tuesday etc.
