Running a business from home is a tricky thing because, on one hand, you have decided to work from home for the flexibility; while on the other hand, everyone (including you, sometimes) seems to think working from home means a vacation with a computer. Taking advantage of the flexibility of working at home does not mean that you must answer to everyone’s beck and call, or be distracted by each little thing. This is easy to say, but hard to do when you are in the moment. At the moment, if the phone rings and you must choose between finishing a business-related email or answering the phone, the phone may seem more pressing. In order to increase your productivity, it is important to run your business like a business, and not like a hobby that you do after rolling out of bed.
First of all, do away with wearing pajamas to work. Whoever said that what you wear doesn’t matter is a lie. What you wear reflects the way you are feeling, to a large extent. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should wear a suit around your house – unless, of course, your clients are coming to your home office for appointments. It just means that, by wearing your pajamas and sweat pants all the time you will not feel as though you are really in the mood to put forward your most productive self. Shower in the morning, put on some clothes that do not have jumping sheep on them, and sit down at your desk feeling like a professional.
Next, think about the time you do your work as a schedule that you need to plan out. If you find that you are planning your work around doing everyone else’s dirty work, then you are not dedicating yourself to your job. Your schedule should include the time you get up, when you will start working, and when you will take your breaks. Make sure that the time scheduled for work is fairly uninterrupted. This may mean investing in a second phone line, and moving your home office away from the television or other parts of the house where you may be distracted.
Make sure that the people you are committed to understand that you are on a schedule. If someone calls to ask you out to a leisurely lunch, think first about whether or not you would be able to do this if you were working a regular job. Scheduling leisure time on schedule days off means that you are putting time and effort into your work, and this will be reflected in your income.
The internet is the great equalizer, with 2Konnect specifically, it has leveled the playing field. Anyone can start using the tools provided by 2Konnect, to assist them in their money-making online business—anyone with a computer, that is.
But here’s the thing: no technical experience is needed. You don’t have to know how to build websites—no programming knowledge is required at all. You can also live anywhere you want, set your own schedule, and work as little or as much as you want, depending on how fast or big you want your business to grow. No business or marketing experience is needed either.
Best of all, unlike a brick-and-mortar business, you don’t need a lot of startup capital. In fact, you can get up and running with 2Konnect for free. For example, you can become a “Sponsored Visitor” in the 2Konnect Community and enjoy many of the benefits associated with your free marketing website and your free personal back office, there you will have access to many free marketing tools. You can use the selling platform to start and operate your online business, until you have your feet under you and are ready to make the jump as an online business owner.
Most people who are just starting out make the mistake of looking for a product first, and a market second.
To boost your chances of success, start with a market. The trick is to find a group of people who are searching for a solution to a problem, but not finding many results. The internet makes this kind of market research easy.
2Konnect taps into this market through the use of their online Marketing Machine. Their online marketing research, through their automated Marketing Machine has provided the 2Konnect Community a source of “Sponsored Visitors”, which in turn have been assigned to existing members throughout the entire Community.
2K-1-A-Day is a online marketers dream. Marketing/customer acquisition is vital to the overall success of your entire business, therefore using the 2K-1-A-Day business building tools will help and assist you through this process of marketing your business.
We will be exploring the details of these incredible marketing tools in future Blog Post Lessons.
Remember…Marketing, Marketing, Marketing is the key element to the overall long term success to your business.
