How to Stay Productive and Focused While Working Remotely

Remote work has been gaining popularity in recent years, especially after the emergence of COVID-19. It has given professionals the flexibility to work from anywhere while maintaining a good work-life balance. However, remote work can also come with its own set of challenges, such as staying focused and productive. In honor of National Work From Home Day, we will dive into some of the effective tips for staying focused and productive while working remotely. These are tips our very own team at 98 Buck Social utilize every day!

Establish a routine:

Working from home may blur the line between your work life and personal life, which can make it difficult to focus. Setting up a routine helps establish a clear divide, which means that it’s time to work. This could include getting dressed for work as you usually do or starting work at a designated time each day. Designing a routine that works for you and can be shared with others on your team can be very helpful.

Utilize communication tools:

When you’re working remotely, there’s little likelihood of making impromptu visits to a colleague’s office, which may lead to delays in communication and collaboration. This is where communication tools like instant messaging, video conferencing, and collaboration tools come in handy. These tools help bridge the gap and keep you connected to your team. Tools like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Slack are popular options.

Create a dedicated workspace:

Having a dedicated workspace creates a sense of routine and allows for better focus. A good workspace should be comfortable and adequately equipped with a desk, chair, and proper lighting to avoid eye strain. Think about soundproofing the room if you need a quieter work environment; investing in noise-canceling headphones can also help block out distractions.

Take breaks:

Working from home can lead to longer working hours, blurring the line between work and personal life. Taking breaks is essential to maintain productivity and avoid burnout. You can schedule your breaks or use apps that notify you when it’s time to take a break. Doing some exercises or taking a power nap can be beneficial to your mental health, physical wellbeing, and productivity.

Stay organized:

It can be easy to quickly lose sight of the big picture when working remotely. Creating a to-do list or project plan can help you stay on track and organized. Make use of digital tools like Asana, Trello, or Monday.com to keep track of tasks and deadlines. It’s important to keep your workspace clean and tidy, and file all critical documents in a secure location, preferably in the cloud.

We hope our tips help you stay ahead of the game and make the transition to remote work a little easier. Remember, don’t be afraid to experiment with new methods and routines that work best for your team and yourself. Remote working can offer more freedom and flexibility, whether it’s for the short or long-term. By following these tips, you’ll be better equipped to stay connected and enhance your productivity while working from home.

What is content review & approval?

Content review and approval is where your social media content creator sends you a weeks worth of posts, prior to their designated publication time the following week.

This way, you will have the chance to give us feedback on each post in case you’d like us to make a minor edit.

Note: One round of editing per post permitted, depending on your plan.

What are the results I can expect from your posting services?

The idea behind consistent posting onto your social media pages is to keep them active with content that promotes your business solutions, educates your audience to showcase your expertise and to also keep things lighthearted, it’s social media after all!

There’s nothing worse for a business than to earn someone looking into what you do, only for them to see a barren social media page. To them, it may appear that you are out of business or potentially a scam.

We are often asked about growing followers and generating sales or leads. These are great goals to have but please understand that those goals are better obtained through paid advertising campaigns.

For more information on paid advertising, please visit our paid advertising services.

Do you use a posting scheduler and how do you get access to my business pages?

We are fortunate to be partnered with CloudCampaign.com to utilize their excellent scheduling platform.

By signing up for our content services, we will set you up with your own Cloud Campaign workspace depending on your plan.

During onboarding we request admin access to your social accounts using a secure platform. This allows us to manage the occasional disconnect when the platforms push out updates.

Furthermore, with your own workspace you are welcome to view and edit content at your leisure!

Why do my posts say “Posted by Cloud Campaign”

We use Cloud Campaign, which is a 3rd party app, to scale social media management and posting. When a post says “Posted by Cloud Campaign”, it is only the admins of your company page that can see this and not your followers.
