5-Minute Self-Promotion Tasks

Let’s say you’ve wrapped up one task, but there’s still a few minutes before your appointment. You could twiddle your thumbs, but you’re not going to do that.

Imagine how productive you could be in just 5 minutes.

Alarm ClockInspired by a recent book-marketing newsletter from John Kremer, I decided to come up with a list of what you can do in 5 minutes to promote your art.

Help me, will ya? I’ll start us off.

In 5 minutes, you could:

  • Send or schedule 5-10 tweets on Twitter
  • Update your status on Facebook
  • Write a Thank You note
  • Address and stamp 3 postcards
  • Clean off your desk
  • Comment on a blog
  • Decide to do the hard work
  • Comment on someone else’s Facebook status
  • Add 3 names to your contact list database (Join us for Cultivate Collectors if this is something you need to do. Starts Wednesday, February 9.)
  • Return a phone call
  • Brainstorm a list of blog post ideas
  • Send an email to someone you’ve been thinking about “just because”
  • Meditate on the vision you have for your career
  • Review your marketing plan
  • Sign up for a class or workshop
