Overcome Your Marketing Procrastination with Nostalgia Media

Feeling the procrastination creep in as you navigate the monthly marketing cycle? Trust me, I've been there too, and I'm currently struggling with it. But worry not! Let's break the cycle together with these mindset changes and actionable strategies to reignite your marketing momentum!



If you're feeling the familiar sting of procrastination when it comes to your marketing efforts, trust me, you're not alone. I've been right there with you, and I'm currently navigating my way through it as we speak. In January and February, I was on fire—I had my blogs and newsletters done a month ahead, feeling like a productivity powerhouse. But here we are in March, and I'm writing this week's blog the week of! Sound familiar? It's easy to let procrastination sneak in, especially when other aspects of our businesses demand our attention. But here's the thing: marketing is crucial for the long game, not just for the here and now. So, I've made a conscious decision to prioritize my marketing efforts this month, to stop procrastinating and get back on track. And you know what? You can do the same. Let's dive into some strategies to conquer procrastination and stick with our marketing gameplan!


Changing Your Mindset About Your Business's Marketing


  1. Make Your Business a Priority: Even when you're busy with client work, remember that your business's growth and success rely on consistent marketing efforts. Shift your mindset to prioritize marketing tasks alongside client work, recognizing the long-term benefits for your business.

  2. Embrace Imperfection: Recognize that perfectionism often fuels procrastination. It's okay if your marketing efforts aren't flawless or you missed a couple weeks; what matters most is starting back up and progress over time.

  3. Shift Your Perspective: Instead of viewing marketing tasks as burdensome chores, reframe them as opportunities to connect with your audience and grow your business. Focus on the positive impact your marketing efforts can have on your brand.


Practical Tips to Overcome Procrastination


  • Time Blocking: Allocate specific blocks of time in your schedule dedicated solely to marketing activities. By setting aside designated time slots for marketing, you create a focused environment conducive to productivity.

  • Batch Creating: Streamline your marketing workflow by batch creating content in advance. Dedicate a block of time to creating multiple pieces of content in one sitting, such as writing several blog posts or scheduling social media posts for the upcoming weeks. This approach helps eliminate the need to constantly switch gears and allows for greater efficiency.

  • Break It Down: Rather than tackling overwhelming marketing tasks all at once, break them down into smaller, manageable steps. Set specific, achievable goals for each task to make progress feel more attainable.

  • Set Deadlines: Hold yourself accountable by setting deadlines for your marketing tasks. Use calendar reminders or project management tools to stay on track and ensure timely completion.

  • Create a Routine: Establish a consistent marketing routine that works for you. Whether it's dedicating a specific time each day to marketing activities or scheduling dedicated marketing days each week, having a routine helps eliminate decision fatigue and build momentum.
