If you have worked with other people on a team you know just how frustrating it is to go back and forth on email. Also, it’s equally nuts to get everything together for yourself, if it’s just you managing everything in your one-woman business.
I have found that using Asana as a content editorial project management tool is my answer to managing my business. I really love using it because I have everything I need in one place. I can keep track of everything and if I need to send my partner who is my husband, I can do so easily and we have a trail of it so no more ” I never got that payment!”
Asana is a large organization with three offices worldwide. SF, NYC, and Dublin. 25,000+ paying customers.
Breaking down your annual marketing plan into the next steps:
- Marketing strategy
- Content calendar
- Campaign management
- Creative production
- Product launches
- Event planning
So everyone can see how their work adds up to the big picture.
Organized Content Calendar using the Publishing Process of Asana
What are the features?
Free unlimited projects and conversations up to 15 people.
I have a membership on Patreon for “Dotto Tech.” Steve Dotto publishes “Free Wednesday Webinars” on marketing practices which I feature on my “Women in Business Facebook Group“. A very well know Canadian Marketer, Steve had a TV Show for many years on the Canadian network. He is very entertaining, I try not to miss his webinars. Patreon members see archived shows but others only see them for 24hrs on his Youtube channel. ( My Group is now closed – soon to re-open)
Here he talks about Asana, which is why I am using it now.
I like to organize my tasks in lists or projects as kanban-like boards or I think Steve calls them cards.
Communicate with entire teams or just for yourself. It pays to remind myself!
Automatic updates of tasks and email reminders.
Tracking of projects with dashboards
I can set up a project simply or with all the moving parts. Recently I did a challenge and I have all the parts of that including the graphics saved under sections with tasks and subtasks under them. Great way to keep track of it all!
I have a template for everything I need to write a blog post. My checklist to make sure my posts go out on time. I just copy it for each week. I don’t have to go searching for something I need like the URL of the headline analyzer tool from Co-Schedule . because I have it in my template.
In addition to my tasks, I also check my Inbox daily. It has the new activity on all the projects and tasks I am following.
Asana is available on the web, it’s flexible and customizable, a great tool for teams large to small or individuals who want to organize their work in one central place. Asana does all that I have mentioned here but it does a lot more…
Here is another video that I have searched for that I like. to tell you more about what Asana can do for you.
