Recent data show that a shocking 97% of marketers are at least “somewhat” stressed, with 1 in 4 being “overly stressed” or stressed “to the max” at work. When asked to name the three top reasons for their stress, over half responded with the sentiment that they were unable to get all of their work done in a typical 40 hour week.
In other words, 80% of marketers are overloaded and understaffed.
There’s a lot of stress in most marketing departments, and this is not a good recipe for success: for getting quality results in an efficient manner or for having a work environment where people flourish.
There’s just too much to do, too little time.
The result, we’ve seen, is that most marketing departments respond too slowly, can’t perform at a high enough level, and / or have high turnover rates.
To try to solve the problem, they often focus on where the money and “high quality clientele” lives. They work on big projects (designing $10,000 or $25,000 websites; planning and implementing $45,000 digital marketing projects), but all this is often to the neglect of doing the small but necessary projects: updating the logo on the website of an existing client, adding a new set of product images to a valued customer’s ecommerce site, tweaking pay-per-click ad copy, writing new content to promote a new line of services offered, etc.
Neglecting the little, ongoing maintenance work for a site, though, can frustrate customers, and frustrated customers can be costly.
And we suspect that the trend is widespread.
Or perhaps your experience is a little different. You’re doing fine. You’re not stressed, but you do have to pass up a lot of little projects because you just don’t have the time, and it’s just not worth the hassle for you.
