How to Maintain Your Sanity Along with Profits
There’s no question that sometimes managing more than one marketing campaign can get tricky, even for the most seasoned marketer.

Perhaps two clients request something at the last minute or maybe you have clients who communicate poorly yet expect immediate and profitable results. But working with multiple clients at once doesn’t have to be a test of your sanity. To successfully maintain multiple marketing campaigns with less stress and more profit, first it’s time to get back to basics.
What Are the Goals and Benefits of a Marketing Campaign?
It may seem like a ridiculous question to ask, given that you’re in the marketing business, but it’s always a good idea to get back to basics, especially if you find yourself amid several marketing campaigns at once. So, if you are feeling a bit frazzled by the many accounts you’re handling, take a deep breath and ask yourself why clients chose you for their marketing needs? What are the benefits of clients seeking out a marketing campaign in a company such as yours?
Marketing campaigns are at the heart of what it takes to reach out to potential new customers and continue to appeal to existing customers. The goal of a marketing campaign is to tell a story about a client’s brand over a period of time. Benefits include increasing sales and profits, establishing a brand image, introducing new products, increasing product awareness, and generating new customers. And always keep in mind that developing a marketing campaign for your client is about setting specific goals with that client and defining how you’re going to achieve those goals.

• Create Deadlines and Specific Goals-
What are you goals with each individual marketing campaign? Are they measurable? Are they attainable? And are they timely with specific deadlines? These are important questions to ask yourself and your staff working on your multiple marketing campaigns. It’s also imperative to keep your goals realistic and within your capabilities as a marketer. While it’s great to have lofty goals for your clients, it’s not so great to make goal so large that you’re incapable of reaching them.
