Asana vs Monday.com: Which project management tool is best for content creators?

One of my clients is a content strategist turned CEO.

We were using Asana for her weekly planner and project management.

It was working for us at first until her clients and projects began to add up.

To manage the team effectively, we:

โŒ Tried integrating Instagantt to help us with workload forecasting. It didnโ€™t work.

โŒ Tried upgrading to the Enterprise version of Asana. Still didnโ€™t work.

She didnโ€™t have the luxury of time but she knew Asana is no longer serving its purpose for us and we need to switch.

All we were doing was to work around Asana, creating different boards just to have a high-level overview of all the moving pieces.

So we started moving projects to Monday.com slowly but surely.

It was a tough transition for her because we had to collaborate for longer hours to ensure Monday.com is the right tool for us.

I documented every process on Monday.com and tracked all the automation I created.

We spent nearly a month finishing the transition, process documentation, and training.

โœ” Reduced labor cost: from 3 hours to 1.5 hours daily tasks allocation
โœ” Time-saving: from 2x weekly check-in to once a week
โœ” Smoother workflow
โœ” Lesser chance to overlook tasks due to automation
โœ” Satisfied team members (I could still remember how they felt relieved
after our training! โ€œThis is way simpler and easier!โ€)

It took one decision to accomplish a completely different result.

Plan your launch. Don’t wing it.

Have you ever started a launch project and half-way through it, you find yourself asking โ€œWhere was I going with this!?โ€ or โ€œWhereโ€™s the instruction manual to these things!?โ€
