Your time has come. Today is the day you will unlock your true communicative and organizational potential. The day you go beyond the limits of email and memory as devices for project tracking. The day that you finally free yourself and merit the title, Mavenlink Master. Let’s dig in.

 

Contrary to popular belief, Mavenlink exists to make your job EASIER. It’s true. Mavenlink is the answer to almost every client-related question you can ask:

 

Where was that proof link for the ads?” – MAVENLINK

When did we start that Adwords campaign?” – MAVENLINK

Which words are we targeting for the SEO campaign?” – MAVENLINK

When is the writer contacting my client?” – MAVENLINK

 

The secret to understanding Mavenlink is forgetting everything you know about it and reading the guide at the end of this article.

So take a second, and start to forget everything.

Let it out.

Okay, you look like you don’t know anything. Now take a deep breath. And let’s begin.

What is a Mavenlink?

Mavenlink is a project management tool. You can use it to keep track of anything and everything that happens involving a client’s digital campaign. 

Where do they come from?

When you (the rep) sell a digital campaign, you fill out a JotForm which is sent directly to the marketing team. The team sets up the Mavenlink and invites all required members (including you!).

What does it do?

Mavenlink can be used for many things. However, let’s not worry about all the things it can do, and worry only about what we need it to do. We really only need Mavenlink for 2 things:

  1. Storing, sharing and finding information
  2. Communicating with the marketing team

Why do we use it?

Remember all those questions listed above in this article? These questions (and many, many more) are asked every day. Every day they create long email threads, unnecessary texts, and aimless scrap paper shuffling. 

All of that is avoided if you open your computer and check Mavenlink.
