How to use Taskomat™ if you are a content creator?
Taskomat™ is the perfect software to manage your workflow if you deal with content marketing and content creation.
Structuring a content creation project with Taskomat™ is both very simple and fruitful, since with Taskomat™ you can track time and budget of every part of your content creation project.
To create a project in Taskomat™ you need to create the work units, i.e. all the parts of the project needed to complete it, each with its own budget and time limit.
The total budget and time limit of the project will be determined by the sum of the individual budgets and time limits of the work units that make up the project.
When you go to set up your content creation project, you will have to create as many work units as there are phases that you need to complete your project, for example: preliminary analysis, drafting 5 long-form, content creation for Instagram, etc..
Let's see a small example of a content creation project created and managed with Taskomat™, so as to make the process clearer.
Project: content marketing project
Project phases: Preliminary analysis; Drafting 5 blog posts; IG content creation.
Let's suppose that your reference rate is 50€, each of these 3 phases will have a budget and a time limit calculated on the basis of the reference rate.
Work unit: Preliminary analysis (1 day to collect the information):
- budget: 400€
- time limit: 8h
Work unit: Drafting 5 long-forms (5 days in total, 1 per post)
- budget: 2000€
- time limit: 40h
Work unit: IG content creation (2 days to collect material and create)
- budget: 800€
- time limit: 16h
In total you have a project with a budget of 3200€ and a time limit of 64 hours.
Once you have created the work units, you will then have to create timed tasks to be planned on your days.
Preliminary analysis (time limit: 8h):
- Meeting with client (2h)
- Information gathering (2h)
- Drafting of preliminary analysis (4h)
Schedule on: Monday 8 April and Tuesday 9 April

Once the tasks are scheduled, you can decide whether to do time tracking or just declare them as completed.
In our example, you can time-track and measure your performance on all the tasks that are not related to the client meetings, while for the meetings you can simply declare them as completed.
By structuring your work in this way, you will be able to understand how long it takes you to complete the various project phases and whether this time is in line with your budget and your revenue goals.
