Working online can be a Dream

Think about it, you get to spend more time at home with your family, you get to avoid the daily commute to and from work, you have the freedom to pick up your laptop and work anywhere you want, you avoid the expenses that come with having an office job and best of all? You get to work in your pajamas. Working from home can be awesome.

With the increasing demand for virtual jobs, more and more employees are quitting their 9-5 office job to go work from home. Those who want a competitive advantage need to stand out as they compete with others vying for the same position online.

What’s the stuff that makes you a GREAT virtual professional?

Know your strengths and utilize them.

Do you have a knack for creative writing and addicting content strategies? Do your graphic design skills blow people away with how awesome they are, or make them drool over the amazing designs that come from your fingertips? Hone your skills by ponying-up and study what a competitive Graphic Designer should know. Be aware of marketing trends. BE AN EXPERT at what you do.

Be Resourceful

Working online means that you have the best resources right at your fingertips. You’ll find a wealth of information on every topic imaginable, and can likely answer any questions yourself with just a few clicks or taps away from finding what you’re looking for.

Ask Questions

You have been burning the midnight oil trying to find that perfect solution. You’ve done everything you can think of and still, it looks like nothing is working out. Don’t worry! ASK your client for help if you’re unsure about anything; don’t blindly guess what they want because doing so could cost you a lot more than just some time wasted.

Build Relationships

Working online can be a challenge if you don’t take the time to get to know your remote team. If meeting someone in-person is difficult, how will you ever build a rapport with them? To help make it easier for collaboration and getting work done, spend some of your day connecting with people! You’ll find that spending just 5 minutes each morning chatting about life can open up doors so everyone feels included.
