Work from Home

  • Keep the routine into it
  • Set your alarm clock, take a shower, get dressed and start on time
  • Establish a separate workplace
  • An additional bedroom is ideal, but if it is not there, then apply a secluded spot somewhere in the house
  • Keep work and home separate
  • If you work on your case, then do not vacuuming in between
  • Tell others you are working. If everyone thinks, he/she is free and yet at home, you will be often disturbed

Work responsible

  • Backup your work at the end of the day
  • Install the 2-3 most common browsers, or at least check your site on another computer, it can be different

  • Check your sites regularly for broken links
  • Optimize your tax situation, consult a professional
  • Be honest and transparent

Be original

  • Make your vision your reality
  • Create your own logo, you can try Fiverr.com at $5
  • Create your own Favicon
  • Make your own photographs

Work seriously

  • Write an author biography and put a picture of yourself on it
  • Add a ping list
  • Sign up for affiliate programs (Google p.e books + affiliate)
  • Track where your visitors come from (Google Analytics)
  • Respond always to your comments

Advertise

Blogging

Blogging is a great way to share your ideas. Write at least one blog a week, and have a passion for your topic. Spend time on researching what you are writing about. Has anyone else already written about this topic? Can you write it better? Are you unique? Or can you add more value to the topic?

Blog formula:

  • Think up an appealing headline
  • Blog relevant information
  • Identify, what keeps your potential reader up at night
  • Play with that, what do your readers talk about
  • How can your product help your readers
  • Mention a solution, what are the benefits
  • Use relevant images
  • Add your personality to your writing, they have to hear YOU speak
  • Do not just hit the share button, write an effective catching intro before sharing your blog.
  • Do not subscribe to RSS add content plugins, it will add strange content.
  • Use only Copyright free images and pictures and use plenty
  • Try to put keywords into your site title
  • Learn to use “Call for action” in your blog post, end with an invitation or a question
  • Write content what readers are looking for
  • Add a picture of yourself on your blog

    Hi Tim, glad to give you some handles to take your business seriously and to schedule your time, I know the offline life can consume a big part of your free time, and a schedule is essential to keep yourself on track, I wish you a lot of success developing your own business. It’s quite a challenge, but your future will content much more sunshine, when you are at that point you can fire your boss;) It’s great working towards that together, Loes

    Hello Loes,
    As a fellow WA’er I have been struggling with organising my time, whilst working 9-5 and having a family. I am getting there but it’s a long, tough road. The content you have in your site is brilliant, i just hope that one day my site can be as good as yours. I like this section about scheduling your business, i will take your advice on board.

    Thanks again!
    Tim.

    Hello Janette, thank you very much, it is indeed important to keep a schedule while working at home, not only for yourself, but also for the people around you, they have to accept that working at home is as serious as working for a boss, you are your own boss, I am working at home for a long time now, but my balance is sometimes a bit disrupt, in the way, I can’t stop, working all nights and weekends. But then there is my lovely husband, who reminds me that there is more in life:) greetings Loes

    Hello Loes,
    My first impression logging on was: Breathtaking and beautiful slider photos! Big, not overcrowded and very classy.
    I love it. I read and looked at 2 other pages. You had some very good points about working from home. I knew someone close to me who had to get up, get dressed and go down and get a newpaper from store, then come back home and start to work. Working responsibly, seriously, advertise, blog and keep your whole life in balance.
    Great Site!
