If you are like us and one of the few businesses that are actively helping other companies, we’re sure you are inundated with requests to prioritize. Our team has been pulled in a variety of directions due to the current health crisis at hand.
Although we are happy to help out as many people as we can, requests can get overwhelming. What’s important is finding a way to manage all of your requests and prioritize them accordingly.
Here at our New Jersey digital marketing agency Trinity Web Media, we use several methods to keep things organized. If you’re ready to take on more clients while helping them in this time of need, tune in below!

Hey, Ron, thanks checking out another episode of the new market show getting us on Instagram, TV, YouTube, all that good stuff on our website. We appreciate you.
Today, working home from the home office, practicing, you know, safety, safe distancing, and staying at home doing my part to not spread this nastiness that’s going on.
So if you’re like us, and you’re in a business that we can help people and you know, we can bring a lot of value during this time.
You know, I bet you’re getting inundated with requests left and right, about maybe updating websites, maybe pushing out social content, maybe pushing out blog posts, maybe creating videos, maybe, whatever it is that you do, maybe seeing people maybe consulting people how to handle this.
So if you’re like us, yeah, we’ve just been swamped with different requests to our clients, and we are more than happy to help. You know. I think the biggest thing is prioritizing the requests and so do you still be efficient and effective and bring all this value to your clients. So the way that I prioritize things are, the way that I do it is it’s a couple of different things.
One, how urgent is it? Is this mission critical is this super crazy urgent, where I have to get it done right away, because that goes to the top of the list. The rest of the stuff, I try to schedule out as much as possible, on you know, writing it down in a book.
And what I try to do is I try to use the GTD method to getting things done method, where what happens is, you pick apart, you pick off the littlest things and you pick up the things that you know that you can get done quickly, in order to make an impact for your client and impact in this case for the community.
So I make I make a list anything hot and urgent. I got to work on right away anything else that I prioritize my saying what can I get done the quickest that’s gonna make the most impact. I keep checking things off our list and I keep going down the row and all. At the end of the day, my list is nothing, or maybe a couple of things left. If it’s just a couple of things left, and they’re just small things, I stay at my desk until I knock it off.
So I can start the next day with a clean slate. These are bigger items, I maybe need a fresh brain or something like that, I try to schedule it so that I can get it done in a timely manner and that it doesn’t become mission critical.
The worst type of tasks that you can have on your list is one that is not urgent and super important that you kind of put off and put off and put off, and then all of a sudden, it becomes crazy, super urgent and super important.
So this is how I do it. I hope things are going well in your world. I hope that you find a method that works for you. And hopefully soon, I’ll be back in my office in Haddon Heights. And we’ll all be back together in the train in the office and this thing will this thing is going to go away so until then be safe practice social distancing, all that good stuff.
Let’s just all be smart. Alright, see you next time.
