How to Manage Happy Remote Marketing Teams

first_imgUber vs Lyft: Battling for Supremacy Related Posts I’m Ben Aston, a digital project manager and founder of The Digital Project Manager, one of the fastest growing online resources for digital project managers. I’ve been in the industry for over 10 years at top digital agencies including Dare, Wunderman, Lowe and DDB. I’ve delivered everything from video virals to CMS, flash games, banner ads, eCRM and eCommerce sites across automotive, utility, FMCG, and consumer electronics brands. 4 Ways You Can Make Your Workplace an Engine of… Building an exceptional marketing team has always been a trying task unto itself. Happy marketing teams will come to the table with invigorating ideas, thought-provoking questions, and a ready-to-hustle attitude. As a project manager, you want to keep your “big ideas” people happy so that they continue to produce the best work possible.Leading a top-notch marketing team with a fleet of remote, or partially remote, workers adds a host of new challenges to the mix. CNBC reports that up to 70% of employees now work remotely at least once a week. That means on top of daily face-to-face issues present in any place of work, you must also consider distance-specific problems like communication, daily task management, and the sharing of resources.That being said, your company will actually benefit by making your team happy. The American Psychological Association did a study that found that happiness actually leads to success. Similarly, a Stanford study notes that positive emotions make you better at motor control, memory, problem-solving, focus, and attention. Knowing this, you can’t afford an unhappy team.How to go about managing a remote marketing team and making them happy isn’t an exact science. Experimenting with different strategies and digital solutions will eventually reveal the formula that works best for you and your team. In saying that, there are some basic steps you can take to get the ball rolling.1. Foster CommunicationIf you want to keep your remote marketing team happy, make sure communication is convenient and seamless. Make sure everyone knows one another by name and face, even if they work across the world from one another. There are different avenues of communication you need to consider for remote marketing teams:E-CommunicationKnow your e-communication strategies and convey the best way for remote marketing teams to reach you and reach one another. Teams that can’t communicate will be unhappy for various reasons. They may feel isolated and uninspired, on one hand, and on another, they may feel frustrated that they keep hitting communication roadblocks while trying to manage complex task lists. In order to keep your team happy, come up with some basic communications guidelines, like what kind of messaging system is best for what kind of message. Is email better for longer queries, while in-app comments are best for quick updates? Make sure your remote marketing team doesn’t feel like they are running in circles or repeating themselves ad nauseam when trying to post a project status, update, or question.Face-to-Face CommunicationWhile this might mean the occasional in-person work retreat or meeting, it doesn’t have to be so drastic (or expensive). Tools like Skype and Google Hangouts are the new “face-to-face.” There is no real replacement for face-to-face communication and your remote marketing teams will be happy that you’ve made an effort to be present. We can be doing a thousand things while firing off another email or text-based communication, but face-to-face communication asserts that all of your attention is on them. Your remote marketing team will be happy to know that they can reach you (or one another) in this manner when back-and-forth emails are ineffective or cumbersome.Emergency CommunicationSomething went wrong, it’s the middle of the night, and your team needs to start working on a fix pronto. What’s the line of communications for taking action fast? You need to set your remote marketing team up for success in order to maintain a level of happiness and wellbeing even in times of crisis. In fact, remote teams will be particularly put to the test when under pressure. Keep your team happy by putting emergency protocol into place before there is an incident, not during.You will also want to clarify the best modes of communication should part of your team need an unexpected few days off due to medical issues or a family emergency. Making sure your team is taken care of both at their best and at their worst moments will make them feel supported, secure, and therefore happier. Setting your team up on Slack or Hipchat could be just what everyone needs to feel prepared.2. Provide Job ResourcesAny marketing team needs a host of different software, free and paid, in order to succeed at their job. They might need research tools, analysis tools, project management systems, communication software, and a host of other things. When working with a remote marketing team, you’ll need to invest in ways that keep your projects connected and organized. This will keep your remote marketing team happy—as well as yourself.Marketing Project ManagementMarketing project management tools, like 10,000ft or Clairzen, will keep your marketing team happy because everything they need to get the job done is found in one place. This prevents tab-hopping between different products that each do a tenth of what your marketing team needs. By cutting out unnecessary administration, like copy-pasting the same data across different disconnected elements, your team will be freed up to focus on more important tasks. What kind of software your teams needs depends on their day-to-day agenda, which only you and your team know. Do you need time and expense tracking? Project management? Reporting dashboards? Resource management? Invoicing? Something else altogether? Do your own marketing project management software comparison to decide what your team needs most to keep them happy, efficient, and productive.Use Portfolio Planning ToolsYou want your team to keep growing and succeeding, obviously. And most of them probably want that, too. But an ever-scaling portfolio of projects and programs can get unwieldy and overwhelming, particularly when managing a remote team that can’t pop into your office with questions and concerns as the business grows and develops. In order to keep your remote marketing team happy, you may need to invest in portfolio planning tools in order to navigate growth and new projects in an accessible, trackable manner. This is like taking a high-level view of all the projects and programs that are in your network. Being able to “see the big picture” is important for making your remote marketing team feel like they are an integral part of the company and not just another brick in the wall.Professional Development Opportunities Investing time, resources, and training into your remote marketing team will emphasize that you see them as a cohesive whole. Remote workers may feel disconnected to the company because they aren’t in the office every day, using desk space and drinking the free coffee. It’s important to offer them training and development options, just as you would an in-house worker. While there are many benefits to being a remote worker, it also means giving up your personal space, computer or laptop, cell phone, and so on, for work, which would otherwise be provided by the company if you were on-site. Acknowledge this by offering different development resources to your remote marketing team. They will be better employes for taking a digital marketing course or going to a conference in their area of expertise. Webinars are another way to bring everyone together for a learning session that can make them feel happier and supported as employees, no matter the distance. Encourage Work-Life BalanceWork-life balance can be tough with remote marketing teams because hours are often flexible, personal technology is often tied to work (work email on a personal smartphone, for example), and there are no locked doors to people from “coming in” on a weekend or holiday. While you can’t force your remote marketing team to unplug and take a break, you can do a few key things to ensure that they have a proper work-life balance.Health and Wellness Seeing as you are managing a remote team, having a gym facility “at the office” doesn’t make a lot of sense. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t offer your team some sort of health and fitness benefit. Whether this is through health insurance options or other avenues, make sure that your team can focus on their mind and body wellness when needed. Exercise has a host of positive benefits, one being that it boosts your mood. Making exercise, and other health amenities, readily available to your team encourages them to engage in activities that are natural mood boosters. Other options you can consider include: message coverage in health care packages or expensing standing desks for the staff.Events, Tickets, and PerksAnything that encourages members of your team to take a night off to rest, relax, and have fun, will contribute to them feeling happier. A monthly raffle for concerts, sporting events, or even a simple night at the movie theater, can make people feel valued. Anything that shows you have gone out of your way to treat your team will instill feelings of gratitude and contentment. Not only will they appreciate a free gift but they will appreciate the time you took out of your busy day to organize a fun event. Small gestures like this will not be lost on your team. If your team works in vastly different locations, you can also consider giving away a Ticket Master or Amazon e-giftcard. Let People Unplug Encourage “unplugging” for designated holidays and let people know that it’s okay not to check their email on vacation. Taking breaks to recharge will not only make your employees happier but will result in them doing better work. Put plans into place for appropriate coverage so that team members can take a vacation without feeling pressured to check-in to do tasks no one else can handle in their absence. Like I mentioned in the “Communication” section above, being able to reach one another in case of an emergency is still important. However, know what is an actual emergency and what merits taking people away from their family dinner or holiday plans. Also, don’t forget to lead by example. If you are working around the clock, even weekends and STAT holidays, then your team may be pressured to, as well. ConclusionMost project managers want their teams to be happy. What some people don’t realize, though, is that happiness must be achieved and earned. Big companies like HubSpot, Netflix, and Google have already realized the value of happy employees, as they were rated as the companies with the “happiest employees” in 2018. If these tech and marketing giants see the benefit of boosting employee happiness, then shouldn’t you too? If you still don’t know where to get started, try asking your employees for feedback: What do they need to feel happier and more satisfied in their work life? What can you do to improve their day-to-day workload? What are some things they struggle with as a remote employee, and how can the company help them to overcome these things?Do they have enough tools at their disposal? Are the tools they have working well?How do they feel about their current work-life balance? What is one thing they would change at the company if they could?Do they feel like they are being heard and valued? Use what you learn to build an e-workplace that caters to the needs of its employees, just as it would an important customer or client. Happy remote marketing teams produce better work. Give some of these suggestions a try and watch the boost in morale that they may inspire. center_img CEOs in Troubled Waters (with Myriam Joire from… A Review of Instagram Marketing by Matthew Lucas Ben Astonlast_img read more

CPWD uses strong words against CAG, finds report incorrect

first_imgThe Supreme Court’s verdict arising out of the presidential reference has injected a shot of confidence in various government departments reeling under the observation of the CAG reports.In reply to the Public Accounts Committee(PAC) on the Commonwealth Games, the Central Public Works Department(CPWD) has used exceptionally strong language against the CAG.The choice of adjectives ranges from “erroneous conclusions” to “wrong comparisons” to “skewed approach” to “not based on facts” to “not properly understood” to “purely speculative” to “not based on reality.”On PAC’s question based on the CAG report that irregular financial favours were extended to the CWG contractors the CPWD retorted with a bang.It alleged that audit’s statement which says that there is an over payment by irregularly treating the substituted items of works as extra items, is not based on facts.It further states that audit is taking a skewed approach in dealing with the extra or substitute item.On the issue of toughened glass used in one of the sports premises which the audit claims led to loss of Rs 2.16 crore, the reply read, “Audit is now silent on the fact that if the rates of roofing were processed as substitute items in place of extra, the department would have paid Rs 11,625.19 per sqm in place of Rs 9,168 per sqm(actually paid) but was never done to safeguard the government interest.”On the PAC’s question of steps taken by the CPWD to ensure level-playing field amongst participating bidders, the CPWD replied by saying, “Consultancy for repair and upgradation of existing structure has perhaps been wrongly misinterpreted and understood by the audit to cover the concept of design of future stadium.”advertisementThe CPWD added that they tried best to ensure more participation and effective competition and that competitive bidding was denied as “baseless and purely based on assumption.”On the charge of restrictive bidding for laying synthetic athletics tracks, the CPWD said that the eligibility criteria were according to the CVC guidelines.CAG in its report had observed that unjustified rates for VIP and VVIP chairs led to a loss of Rs 3.66 crore which the CPWD in its reply said that the estimates were prepared at the time of the call of the tenders and not at the time of inviting expression of interest.The agency is also accused of revising contractor’s profit and overheads(CPOH) from 10 to 15 per cent of ACIL without the government’s prior approval leading to a loss to exchequer.The CPWD said the audit has tried to connect two different aspects and to project an altogether different scenario which is not based on reality.It concludes by saying, “audit shouldn’t jump to such speculative imaginations without verifying the actual facts.” To another allegation based on CAG report refers to wasteful expenditure resulting out of purchase of 29 racing lanes instead of 18 as required.The CPWD claimed that the CAG did not take note of the guidelines of the CWG Organising Committee for sports equipment.The agency argued that it was done to take care of any unforeseen incident and one spare set of float lanes in the possession of the Sports Authority of India(SAI) cannot be termed as an excess expenditure of Rs 22 crore as alleged by the audit.The CPWD, in its answers to PAC, blamed CAG for not going through the papers and even quoting wrong figures.last_img read more

Braxton Miller I was just having a little bit of fun rushing

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) runs the ball during a game against Indiana Nov. 23 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-14.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorWhether lined up as a quarterback or wide receiver, Ohio State junior quarterback Braxton Miller had no shortage of success running the ball against the Indiana defense in OSU’s 42-14 victory Saturday.“It would be hard for me to say that wasn’t the best he’s ever run that I’ve seen him play,” coach Urban Meyer said of Miller following the victory.On a day senior Carlos Hyde became the first running back to rush for 1,000 yards in a single season on a Meyer-coached team, it was Miller who stole the spotlight.Miller led the Buckeyes with 144 rushing yards on just 13 attempts, the third game in his OSU career in which he averaged more than 11 yards per carry.The quarterback ran for two touchdowns, and neither lacked theatrics.He accentuated his first scoring run, a 37-yard scamper, with a somersault flip into the end zone over the right front pylon.“I was just having a little bit of fun,” Miller said after the game.OSU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman did not find the end of Miller’s touchdown run as enjoyable.“He said he was just having fun out there, and I said, ‘Well, as long, you can have as much fun as you want, just don’t cost your team 15 yards,’” Herman said, who was worried about Miller picking up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the celebration.Miller’s second touchdown run came on a play Herman named “Jazzy,” which began with Miller lined up on the left side of the field as a wide receiver and redshirt-senior Kenny Guiton in his place at quarterback.Guiton started the play moving left toward Miller, but Miller came right on a reverse and took a pitch from Guiton. From there, Miller looked to pass but continued running forward and toward the right side of the field, capping the play by leaping and extending over a hit from a defender for a five-yard touchdown.“It’s a run/pass option and (the Indiana defense) covered the routes actually really good,” Herman said. “(Miller) has a run/pass option to throw it to (junior tight end Jeff) Heuerman or run it in himself … he did a hell of a job finding the end zone.”Meyer said he was “hoping (Miller) would throw it.”“He’s a great athlete,” Meyer said of Miller. “I’d rather him not do that, but do what he’s got to do. He played really well today.”It was important for the Buckeyes to have success from multiple rushing threats Saturday, as OSU went with a run-heavy game plan on a snowy, windy day at Ohio Stadium.“I went out there in pregame warmups and (the weather) was certainly affecting a lot of the throws,” Herman said. “When Mother Nature tells you ‘Don’t throw the football,’ you better listen to her, because she’s pretty demanding when it comes to that.”Still, on a day the Buckeyes ran the ball 39 times and only had 17 passing attempts, Miller completed 11 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns.Miller earned praise from Herman for three downfield throws that went for 25 yards or more: a 39-yard touchdown completion to junior wide receiver Devin Smith on a post route across the middle of the end zone, and two deep completions on seam routes by Heuerman for 34 and 25-yard gains.“Three unbelievable throws that stick out,” Herman said.Overall, Miller accounted for more than 64 percent of OSU’s total offense Saturday.Miller’s game was not without its mistakes, though. He had two fumbles, one of which was recovered by Indiana freshman defensive tackle Darius Latham for a takeaway. He also had a pass tipped in the backfield by Hoosiers’ redshirt-sophomore cornerback Michael Hunter and intercepted by redshirt-senior safety Greg Heban.“We got to protect the football better at our position,” Herman said. “I did a poor job of coaching him on that corner blitz that got tipped and intercepted, but the two fumbles from our position are certainly unacceptable.”Overall, however, Herman said Miller has been playing the best football of his OSU career “by far” this season.“(Miller) took a little step back against Illinois, didn’t have his greatest game, but I got asked if that was a cause for concern after that game and I said, ‘As long as it’s not a pattern,’” Herman said. “He prepared really, really well this week and played his you-know-what off, and yeah, I’m proud of him.”Miller only played one series in OSU’s second game against San Diego State and missed the next two games after suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee. In nine games, Miller has completed 67.7 percent of his passing attempts for 1,626 yards, 19 touchdowns and four interceptions, while he has also rushed for 738 yards and five touchdowns.“He’s a freak,” junior defensive tackle Michael Bennett said. “He’s really developed as a passer this year, which was great to see because everyone knows his run threat. But you see him making passes that a lot of people can’t make, and I feel like he’s really starting to develop into that role of an NFL quarterback.”Statistically, Miller’s last two games against Illinois and Indiana have been his lowest passing outputs of the season in terms of yards, with the exception of the San Diego State game, in which he only attempted two passes before leaving with injury. But in those two games, he has rushed for the same combined number of rushing yards, 328, as he had in his first five games back from injury.“Good to see Braxton back out there looking like Braxton,” Hyde said. “I love to watch Braxton running the ball. He’s a very exciting player. Any minute, he can break off that long one or make somebody look silly, and it was exciting to be able to watch him.”Miller will look to continue making big plays, and the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) will be looking to extend their school-record win streak to 24, when they travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to play Michigan (7-4, 3-4) Saturday. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse knocks off Johns Hopkins 1512

OSU junior attackman Carter Brown (14) scored six goals in the Buckeyes’ 15-12 win against Johns Hopkins on March 5 at Ohio Stadium.Credit: Courtesy of OSU athleticsFor the first time ever, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team defeated the nine-time NCAA Champions Johns Hopkins Blue Jays, 15-12, Sunday night at Ohio Stadium.“Awesome,” was the first word senior David Planning could muster to describe his team’s performance.“When you beat a team like that as a senior, at home, there’s no greater feeling in the world,” Planning said.Hopkins (4-6, 1-1) struck first with two early goals, but that proved to be the Blue Jays’ largest lead of the game. OSU (9-3, 2-0) registered goals from five different players, but all signs pointed to junior attackman Carter Brown.With Brown playing at the “X,” he found the back of the cage six separate times with five of those goals coming from behind-net wrap arounds.“It starts with the guys up top beating their guys. If the defense slides and starts to rotate, that makes my job really easy. I just make gains and come hard across the goal,” Brown said.But Carter was not the only Brown finding success on the field. For Johns Hopkins, junior Ryan Brown scored eight goals against the Buckeyes with one assist, giving him nine total points on the night.The game was tied nine different times as the Buckeyes struggled to pull away. But OSU redshirt-sophomore goaltender Tom Carey registered 14 saves to lead the Buckeyes’ defense.“The offense played great tonight. As a defense we didn’t play our best, but the offense had our back the whole game,” Carey said.Coach Nick Myers agreed that the OSU defense wasn’t at its best, but said he was still happy about how his team played overall.“Defensively, we knew we were going to have our hands full but I was proud of the way we fought for 60 minutes and ultimately came away with the victory,” Myers said.The win provided a lift for the Buckeyes after they fell to the Blue Jays in triple overtime last season.This time around, the OSU offense found its groove and scored more than 10 goals against Johns Hopkins for the first time in the program’s history.“We’ve been battling all week practicing so hard, but really it all starts in the back and Carey played awesome back there. We had (senior midfielder) Chris May winning faceoffs which gave us the possession, offense was just playing really simple and fast,” Brown said.Though OSU totalled 15 goals from five different players, Planning had arguably the highlight goal of the night at 13:06 in the second quarter. Sophomore attackman JT Blubaugh fed the outlet pass to Planning, who used a split dodge to beat two Hopkins defenders before rifling a shot to the back of the net.But for Planning, the night was about his teammates and the Buckeyes winning their second game in the Big Ten.“This is a whole team win, we had goals spread out throughout the entire team,” Planning said. “We are a team first and foremost. I’m so proud of what we have accomplished.”With two conference games behind them, Myers said the Buckeyes have to focus on what’s ahead.“For our men, the most important thing is to think about how to get better and get win number three next week. There will be a time to reflect on the season, but right now it’s time to get back, get our rest and improve as we head north for the weekend,” Myers said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Michigan Wolverines on Sunday in Ann Arbor, Mich., at 2 p.m. read more

Draxler welcomes Pogba suspension for Man Utd PSGs return leg

first_imgJulian Draxler believes Paul Pogba’s suspension for Manchester United will give Paris Saint-Germain an advantage in the return leg of their last-16 clash.Pogba was sent-off towards the end of the game at Old Trafford on Tuesday night for a second yellow card following a challenge on Dani Alves as United lost the first leg 2-0 to PSG.Second half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe were what secured PSG the win, who will next host United for the second leg at the Parc Des Princes on March 6.But the Ligue 1 champions have also received a big boost in the news that Pogba will be suspended for the clash.And PSG star Draxler believes this could be critical given that he rates the French midfielder as United’s best player.“For me, Paul is the best player of Manchester United,” said Draxler, according to OneFootball.“He’s a very important player for the team and you could see he is fantastic [on Tuesday].“That is why we are very happy he will not play the second leg.“I think they started very well so the pressure was not easy for us, but in the second half we were more confident and the pressure of Man United was a little bit less.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“That helped us to improve our game so we found some space on the pitch and we used that very well and that is why we deserved to win.”PSG, who became the first French team to beat United at their home ground in the Champions League, will now turn their attention back to Ligue 1 for Sunday’s trip to St-Etienne.Thomas Tuchel’s side currently lead the French league by 10 points from nearest challengers Lille OSC, who have played two more games than them, and have only lost once in their 22 matches this season.⚽️🏟️🏡 #MUPSGHalfway there… 👊🔴🔵 #AllezParis pic.twitter.com/nhgEYrWU1W— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) February 13, 2019last_img read more
