Home Business Hacks That Can Save You Time

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the way businesses operate and inspired some individuals to start their own businesses from the comfort of their homes. However, compared to visiting an office on a daily basis, working from home can vastly differ in terms of the environment and an individual’s ability to stay focused on the tasks at hand. For those who are either thinking about running their own business from home, or have already started with entrepreneurial ventures, this post is for you. 

Firstly, one of the most useful home business hacks that can save you both time and the anxiety created via approaching deadlines is to create your own office workspace. What this means is devoting a either corner of your home or a room as a dedicated office space where you can concentrate on your duties and responsibilities during office hours. This not only helps set the boundaries for others if you have family members or roommates living with you, but also acts as a periodic reminder that once you’re at that location, you should focus on business matters. 

Having a designated work location within your home is a great way to separate your professional life from your personal one as well. This is especially the case when phone calls with clients, for example, must be made with little to no distractions in the background. A quiet or soundproofed location can help elevate your professionalism and productivity when it comes to conference calls and business meetings that occur online and over the phone. 

If your work heavily involves working in front of a computer screen, then investing in a second monitor may also be a step in the right direction. This would not only help you organize your tabs, but also make it easier for you to find the documents and material you require to complete different tasks. Moreover, having a second screen can help save you time in terms of task delegation and keeping track of your daily checklists. 

Don’t forget the power of automation, either. Take advantage of the tools available when it comes to social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. While you can, in theory, publish posts by hand during designated times, it would be overwhelming in the long run. To mitigate errors in timing or even the risk of forgetting to post, use an automation tool to schedule your content. Some applications that do this include Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, and Loomly. 

As for the type of context itself, the material can be timely or evergreen. The former type of context pertains to posts that are relatable and are of current hot topics, while the latter type of posts can be published at any time and still generate effective results. You can work with a member of the Find Your Audience team to receive statistics and a customized social media and content calendar strategy.

If your primary focus is not social media or you have delegated that task to an employee, then consider turning off your social media notifications and log out of websites. Through the day, you may be tempted to visit your personal Facebook pages or even check up on your Instagram or Snapchat account, however, doing so is ill-advised, since it can distract you from your responsibilities. 

You can, however, check up on your personal social media accounts during a designated break or during the lunch period. The key here is to not get side-tracked and establish a form of self-discipline when it comes to working from home where you are the primary judge of yourself. 

Of course, the Find Your Audience team is always here to support you and help your business reach its full potential. For more information and a thorough consultation, be sure to contact either 647-479-0688 or
