Part 2 of 2: Before we meet Ian Finch, MD and Owner of Mando Group, a digital agency that designs and delivers customer experience led websites, intranets and mobile apps that drive engagement and increase efficiency, you need to know that this interview is actually split into two and you can hear the first part of this interview by listening to the previous Marketing Study Lab episode, but in this one we discuss a beer fridge (whoop)!

But before you reach for an actual beer while enjoying this episode you may want to find out why you should be reading your assignments backwards, yes sdrawkcab and why checking deadline dates is a no brainer.

Takeaways
– AI will only get better, with advance levels of automation but also a keen eye on GDPR.
– Focus on the positives, not negatives. The Mando beer fridge is a perfect example of this, turning something that was universally despised (filling in time sheets), turning it into a positive attribute

Top Tip – Reading Backwards
If you want to spot any of those really, really, frustrating typos try reading your assignment backwards. This way you wont be tricked into reading sentences and certain misspelt words, or those that a spellchecker may not spot will start to stick out. Reading an assignment backwards also focuses in the individual words rather than the strings of words that you are used to reading, which can be deceivingly incorrect.

So to recap, read it backwards, word by word, spot the mistakes, change them then submit your word perfect assignment.

Reviewing the Student Submission Guidelines
Make sure you know the deadline date once you know what module you will be tackling. If you are sitting an exam make sure you not only know the date and time of the exam, but also the location so you can make arrangements for getting there with plenty of time to spare.

A deadline date can also give you a focus, a specific point in the future which you can actually work towards (Pro Tip – Mark this date in your calendar and then work backwards from it pin pointing where any draft submissions need to be in by and when you aim to complete certain sections of your assignment to keep you on track, factoring in time to review and change anything before the deadline date).

In completing an assignment in time to be reviewed by a study centre will mean that you also have time to ask any further questions that may come up during your research or after you received your assignment back from a tutor and feel you need to change parts of it in line with the recommendations given. Keeping to a timeline means you will have the time to check, double check what you have actually written, making sure it is what you wanted to say to the best of your abilities.

All deadline dates are available via the My CIM members page or through your accredited study centre (if not they will be able to find out for you, with some helping you to upload your final submission paper).

Happy Marketing Everyone!
