by   |    |  5,657 views

Does the ringing of your morning alarm clock sound like the firing of a starting gun?

For most marketers, it does. Marketers often find themselves rushing from task to task and fighting the numerous distractions and lack of structure that affect their productivity.

The following infographic by AtTask shows the highlights and lowlights of a marketer's typical day.

For example, 37% of marketers spend one hour to two hours reading and responding to email, and 36% spend three to four hours.

Interruptions also take up time: 35% of marketers blame interruptions for negatively affecting their productivity. Some 26% blame unexpected projects or rework.

To find out more about a marketer's typical day, check out the infographic:
