I recommend that you use next action date. With next action date you only calculate date once and it is easier to scan file looking for a particular date. For those that you can do every day write ‘daily’ instead of next action date.
Some search engines get upset if you submit too often. This could also be tracked in your file. Enter search engine name and URL to submit your site from. Display how often you can submit and last or next action date.
You could also track your pay per clicks campaigns in same file. Display program name and URL. You could also show keywords, current bid amounts, and dates. You might want to also record click through rates.
In a similar fashion you could also track where you have exchanged links and your ezine ad campaigns. There is a logical way to display and track all of your various marketing efforts.
The advantage of using one file for everything is simplicity of having everything in one location. You can easily scan it each day to see what you should be doing that day.
Keep your file organized. Put all safe lists in a group. Also group search engines, pay per click, and whatever other methods you are using.
As time passes your file will get longer. However, your daily marketing should continue smoothly because you are organized. This file can contain all of your marketing information, daily tasks, and recurring tasks. The convenience of having everything in one easy to access file can save you a tremendous amount of time. It will also help prevent missing or putting off some of your marketing efforts.
This file can also become a partial history of your marketing. For instance, as you enter your link exchange partners and dates you will be creating a history of your link exchanges.
As time goes on you may want to add other information to your files, such as web sites that you want to check out later. Keep non-marketing things like this grouped together and near end of file so that you do not scan them every day when you are doing your marketing.
Please remember to back up your file regularly. This could save you much grief in case of a computer virus or crash.
Most people will not take time to set up and maintain a simple system like this. By doing so you will be ahead of crowd. You will be taking a giant step toward being a successful Internet marketer.
