A Day in the Life of a Remote Digital Marketing Consultant

#digitalmarketingconsultant #digitalmarketinglife #dominicbanguis

I've been asked so many times about my "daily routine" as an online / remote digital marketer, whether from people that I know, or head hunters, so once and for all, I have decided to share a snippet of what really goes on in my day. So here we go..

First off, I personally know that a lot of people think that working remote or as a digital nomad is usually in a coffeeshop somewhere or on a tropical beach with just a laptop. It does happen to me a few times. However, this digital nomad lifestyle has been romanticized so much, especially in the last two to three years that it's become unrealistic. It's not like that at all. Maybe for Vloggers, but not for a marketing consultant. Since most of my work require constant communication with clients and multiple applications for productivity, working outside will be unproductive for me.

Most of the time, I work in my home office or in a private office rented for the day,


So my alarm goes off at 4:00AM.

I spend a few minutes to read the Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday, and a chapter from Marcus Aurelius' Meditations.

After that, I get ready for my daily run.


I usually do an early walk run of around 5 kilometers, or more everyday. I just started this routine early this year, but it's been quite refreshing, plus I do feel more alert and energized everyday. I do believe in a Fit Body, Fit Mind.

While I run, I have Spotify on a loop on Dream Theater's latest album, Distance over Time. It's been on a non-stop loop for months now.

However, on some occasions I listen to the YouTube audio track of the Marcus Aurelius lecture by Prof. Michael Sugrue to remind me of the Principles of Stoicism and the Dichotomy of Control each and everyday.


Usually personal stuff, family, etc. Also use this time to catch up on any new trends from Google, Search Engine Journal, Social Media Examiner, Neil Patel, Hubspot, SEMRush, and HootSuite. With so much happening in Digital Marketing and Marketing Technology, I need to know anything new that comes up.
