Whether it’s done by choice or by necessity, working from home has its benefits, like avoiding your daily commute. But it also means it’s up to you to motivate yourself and get as much out of your time as you would in an office setting.
To help, here are four tips to keep yourself accountable, collaborative, and productive as you work from home.
When do you feel happy at work?
Salary, a healthy environment, and awesome coworkers – they all matter and influence your motivation. But what about your work effectiveness? Do you feel happier at work when you stay productive and complete all tasks fast, big, and in a novel way?
Productivity boost is not that easy to maintain. I bet you know that feeling after lunch when you are ready to do everything, except work. Tasks are waiting, but what you can do is sit and stare at that blinking text cursor in the hope it will disappear. It frustrates, right? It makes you sad as you want to succeed at work, be happy, and stay motivated there.

Content Writing is quite a popular career choice today. If you are planning to appear for an interview of a Content Writer, this blog is what you need to read. Below is a list of typical Content Writer Interview questions and answers for your next big interview.
1. What do you do to research the target audience?
Although this question is more pertinent for content marketing/Strategy profile, it is also a must for content writers to have basic knowledge about target audience analysis. You can use the following answer as a framework, around which you can add more elements.
As a content writer, it is important for me to identify the target consumer and understand his/her personality, preferences, and needs. For this purpose, I take assistance from analysts and review the data provided by them. I also often take insights from the Sales/customer-service teams and once in a while interact directly with the customers.
Salespeople who tackle complex sales are bound to have their hands tangled in the sales process from time to time. With all the moving parts, it can be tough for them to maintain focus – their innate response is likely to scatter about, making sure absolutely no deal or opportunity leaves their sight – but knowing how to focus is the key to driving productivity and success for any sales organization.
“In any walk of life, we tend to do what we focus on, and there are a lot of things to focus on,” said Timo Rein, co-founder and president of Pipedrive. “But you need to be focusing on – and filling your day with – things that are the key to being successful.”
From analyzing the previous month’s sales results, preparing for the next call, and finishing a proposal, if salespeople don’t know how to shift their focus properly, or are focused on too many things at once, the sales process will get clogged, and they won’t achieve maximum results. Contrary to popular belief, multitasking does not equal productivity.
Review your sales and marketing strategy to boost profits and gain ground on your competitors. A good way to start is by breaking down the process into discrete, manageable elements. You end up with a checklist that can be reviewed to prioritize areas needing improvement and serve as the groundwork for an effective marketing strategy.
Research your current and future markets to learn why your customers buy from you and what you could offer to attract more customers. Identify ways to sell more to your most profitable customers and if there are bulk, institutional, industrial, or corporate markets beyond normal retail that you are ignoring. This data can help you determine if new features or services will attract new customers or if people will pay more for them.
