What makes marketing teams truly productive?

All marketers have one thing in common: they wear a lot of hats. On any given day, marketing teams are collaborating on a variety of projects, campaigns, events, and product launches. A marketer’s gears are constantly shifting between editorial calendars, social media channels, website landing pages, product launch schedules, and analytic platforms.

With all of of this competing work, how can you manage your marketing team to work productively and exceed monthly business goals? It’s a simple strategy of organization and communication.

Being in-the-know is crucial for any team management. With the right tools in place, everyone can organize their work transparently and communicate asynchronously so every member of the marketing team is on the same page. Our own marketing team at Trello uses the boards, processes, and Power-Ups below to manage their marketing workflow and to stay aligned on campaign statuses, updates, resources, and successes—no matter where they are in the world. Get inspired, copy the boards, and make them your own!
