How many successful marketers do you know that don't drink coffee? Sure, there are some tea drinkers out there, and the occasional member of the 5 am club who functions on ambition and 5k morning runs alone. But let's be real, coffee is, was, and always will be the lifeblood of the marketing industry. Here we take a look at coffee's role in marketing success.
Helps You Focus On A Single Task
Marketers are notorious multi-taskers, and that's not always a good thing. When you have an important project with a hard deadline, it is important to be able to focus on the task at hand.
“Coffee is enormously helpful to the creative process because it suppresses unwanted and unnecessary insights and instead helps you focus on the work at hand. It helps you get down to work, stay on the project, and make day-to-day progress, rather than daydreaming up new things that you might be doing instead.” – Inc.
Keeps You Alert And Energetic
We all need a bit of a boost in the morning or mid-afternoon to keep us at our best. Coffee can help keep your energy levels up, allowing you to be more productive.
“Because caffeine acts as a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, people usually take it to feel more alert and energetic. Caffeine can improve mood and help people feel more productive. It is believed to work by blocking the neurotransmitter adenosine's receptors, increasing excitability in the brain.” – Verywell Mind
Makes You Happy And Positive
It's tough to be productive when you're not in a good mood, and you guessed it, coffee can fix that too!
“The Harvard School of Public Health tested both men and women to see if happiness and positivity could be achieved through coffee drinking, and found out that coffee can mimic the feel-good happiness that you might get from a very mild antidepressant.” – Bustle
Improves Creativity And Collaboration
Creativity and collaboration are significant aspects of nearly every marketing role. Being able to write copy and develop campaigns requires a heavy dose of both.
“Research from MIT and others supports the notion that coffee can help people be more creative both individually and in a group setting. Sitting together over coffee at work can break down normal social and professional barriers, leading to more casual or freewheeling conversations.” – Redbooth
Helps You Learn New Skills And Technology
We all face the challenge of a rapidly evolving industry where we must adapt to new buying habits and marketing technology. The answer is simple; drink coffee!
“One study has shown that about 200 milligrams of caffeine can improve your ability to identify sentences and words faster than you could without coffee. Numerous entrepreneurs set themselves up to acquire new skills, learn new technology, or better understand their business among others in their industry. A couple of coffee cups may be just what you need to give your full attention to the material you are studying and put it to use in your business.” – Honest Food Talks
