When the Corona Virus slows down the whole world. Stay productive and motivated during the time you are working from home.

Working from home stressful in times of Corona virus

Long before the coronavirus outbreak struck, working from home was introduced in some companies around the world. Nobody expected it to become so quickly a must and a big challenge for a lot of white-collar employees.

Tech giants including Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter announced earlier this week, that most of their staff are mandated to work remotely due to the coronavirus.

Mother Earth and the Corona Virus

What are the biggest challenges for employers and employees?

Employees struggling with loneliness, managing their time, and if you work in a team than communication between team members is a challenge.

In lots of countries schools and colleges have been closed and parents must juggle the company working from home experience and family priorities.

As coronavirus spreads, working from home is the new reality for many people around the world.

The trick with working from home is finding a balance between work, family and their social life.

Lots of question are raised as to when working from home for a company…

  • How often can my boss call me in a day?
  • does that mean I am 24/7 available?
  • What happens if I am out when my boss calls?
  • Do I get paid a full salary or will it be cut short?
  • and so many more…

You might be one of the people where the office has closed and employees are sent home and commute the work from home.

Or you are an entrepreneur who works from the comfort of your home. My Freedom Lifestyle Biz has highlighted some tips that will help you to stay productive while working from home.

1. Procrastination at it’s finest. 

When you are home all day, there are many ways to get distracted. The TV stares at you and it is tempting you to have a sneak peek on your favourite Netflix series or movie. The couch looks so inviting to sit down to watch TV maybe only 1 hour or so. 

You could do the cleaning and tidy up of your home, or maybe you could do the ironing. 

Or you could call a friend and talk a couple of minutes. Working from home has many temptations around the corner. 

It is so easy to fall into this trap when you know there is no one around who holds you accountable. Establishing a routine and a schedule on what you should do is essential. Stay on top of all your tasks with these simple tips.

2. Get into the right mindset. 

Devote some time to a 15-minute meditation to clear your head and align yourself.

Not everyone is a friend of meditation but there are many ways to get you into the right mindset.

  • Have a hot cup of coffee to start your day.
  • Create a mental To-do list for you on what you want to achieve today.
  • Have a walk
  • Do some exercise
  • Do whatever sets the mood for you to get going. 

3. Get ready for the day.

Working from home does not mean you can sit around the whole day in your pyjamas with the television on in the background. Take this picture out of your mind. That is not how it works. 

It is the same as you would be working from an office. To be successful, you have to set yourself up for success. You have to taste it, see it, feel it, hear it, and of course, want it. ( Free webinar Winning the game of money)

Get dressed and start your day as you would going to an office.  It is so much easier being dressed up and talking on the phone to a customer or a team member as when you are in your pyjamas.

Tip of the day. Every day before you start, set an intention for today. 

4. It is vital that you get into a routine or rhythm to perform at your best.

One of the most important things you have to do is establish working hours and break times.

Even working from home is flexible, you need rhythm and a routine.

Manage your time wisely as there are parts in the day where your bio clock is at the lowest and most of the time, you won’t be very productive. 

You know procrastination will kick in when you are most vulnerable and that is normally the time when your bio clock is at the lowest. Any distractions that lead to procrastination is bad. Having routine cuts out those little distractions by 60%.

5. Dedicate a space where you can work from home in peace. 

It is vital that when you are working from home that you have a place where you work and where you are not disturbed by your kids and other members of the household.  

You might be able to work on your kitchen table or work from your balcony when the weather is excellent. Where you work is up to you, but you need to be able to concentrate and be productive, not busy. 

7. Sit comfortable and align your back 

People can work in many positions. Some people can work in bed or on a sofa for hours. Whenever you do not have a working desk available, make sure you got a small table in reach of you. Even if you do not have to work with a lot of papers and documents around you. 

 It is always good to have a side table handy for a glass of water and your phone.  

You can also use a c-table for the comfort of your neck and posture. 

Some people love sitting on the floor than prop yourself with a couple of throw pillows to maintain proper body alignment.

The best way to work is by sitting on a table with a proper chair and back support. Use the kitchen table or whatever is available. It is important that you can work in peace and are not distracted.

8. Track your Time 

Be aware of how you spend your time. Answering emails and or getting sidetracked on social media. How many hours do you spend on the phone? Streamlining some of your tasks might be a good idea to keep you productive. Use Rescue Time to track your time and record your productivity. 

9. Prioritize your tasks

Did you know that wealthy and successful people do the unpleasant tasks first thing in the morning to get them out of the way? 

The reason is of not being distracted throughout the day. 

Prioritize your To-Do- list according to the importance of tasks. 

Work with the 80/20 rule to get most out of your day. 

What counts in the end of the day is that you know you accomplished the tasks you set out. Ending the day with being satisfied and happy in crossing off the to-do list is rewarding in itself. 

10.Set a Timer for your breaks 

Find out what is your attention span, and when you lose focus. 

Set your timer for a period of time and get up from your computer to stretch your legs, go to the Restroom or walk around and get fresh air. 

It is suitable for your eyes to get off the screen and look into the distance for a while. Getting off the computer screen also means not looking at your phone screen. 

You can get a snack too, or get some Vitamin D when you go outside to boost your immune system. When it is rainy weather than turn on all the lights to get you out of that mood, a rainy day brings with it.

11. Don’t Multitasks stay on Monotasking? 

When you focus on your work and finish one task at a time, you are much more productive. 

Focusing on many tasks all at once will make you busy but not productive.  

Get one task done well vs three tasks done poorly. 

No doubt working from home has its benefit. Let’s take advantage of them while still being productive. ( Find out how I work from home and my monthly salary)

12.Log off! You are done for today. 

Working from home has many advantages but also disadvantages. 

A good work from the home perspective must let you also log off. 

You have to learn to create boundaries. 

You have to learn to log off and not just from your laptop or phone. From the work, it means to switch off your brain and mind.

You have to balance your work from home life with your social life. Working from home can be a lonely place. Ask any Entrepreneur they can tell you.

A great way to end the day is to create a quote or phrase when you finish your work, that way you signal to your brain that you are going off work now. 

If you have a last-minute idea, write it down, or use voice recording and think about it further tomorrow. 

Working from home does not mean you are 24/7 on stand by.

13.Relax and treat yourself

Allow yourself to relax and take time off. Treat it like you would work in a healthy office environment. Your body and mind will thank you for it. 

Working from home does not mean you do not have a life. You do still have a life and reward yourself. In Corona Virus times you might hold off until it is over.

How difficult life may seem; there is always something you can do and succeed at. Stephen Hawking

Say no to fear and achieve your goals in no time

The New Year arrived so quick, at least for me. Time flew by and now is the time again to set goals, intentions and resolutions. I am not very good at setting long term goals but I have learned that it is a process that keeps me focused and successful. 

How many of us will actually see through to the end? I have friends (and I was for years the same) they set high goals, but by the end of March all is back to square one, and the goals are just to difficult to achieve or as one of my good friends says, when life kicks in we follow and obey.

I was following this trend for a couple of years, and I figured out it is not the life that kicks in it is FEAR. You can argue with me about that but what is the reason you do not achieve your goals? 

Fear is in our daily life. What would life be without it? 

Fear gets to the best of us, whether it is fear of failure, fear of success, fear of change or even fear of fear.

We all have experienced fear to some point in our lives, and it can be a big block or obstacle that is holding us back to achieve our goals and being truly successful. 

No need to panic, there is a solution for everything. You can conquer your fear in simple and easy steps. 

As it is a time to change and a new beginning I love to give you a gift.

How To Increase The Sales Of Your Affiliate Products. Follow These 7 +1 Secret Rules.

Success is a matter of your mind

Do want the unlock the secret of making more sales?

Are you an Affiliate Marketer and struggle to make sales every day. Many Affiliate Marketers are on the right way but somehow get sidetracked and lose the chance of making sales. They get caught up in everyday life. We all do.

Success is a matter of your mind

I know it sounds easy selling online and the advertising of the big gurus says all. Get rich overnight, sell this product it sells itself alone, create the passive income you dreamed off, but the reality is many Affiliate Marketers struggle to make sales on a continuing base and hardly meet month ends need.

Why is it that Online Marketers struggle to survive.

They jump from one product to another from one course to another and thinking that will bring you success. Time passes, and another product or program comes up, and you will buy or get it again.

The Affiliate Marketers who sell you the product use an excellent tactic to convince you to buy the product, and they address your problem, and with the product, they will solve it for you.

Think about it. Study that offer that attracts your attention.

“Selling is something we do for our clients – not to our clients.”

by Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar, you can find more quotes at (https://www.brainyquote.com/authors/zig_ziglar)

Zig Ziglar and his famous “Book See you at the Top”

I have to admit when I was in my 20th, and I read the book from Zig Ziglar “See you at the Top”I loved it, and when I was travelling in the aeroplane I had a few burst outs of a laugh as some examples he did are so right and made me laugh.

People always looked at me thinking I gone nuts, but I love this book. I still have it and can recommend it to anyone.


One story I love and I like to tell as it fits so good at this time.
It is the story about John Jones who is in New York and want to go to Boston. So he went to the train station  and bought himself a ticket. 

The Art of getting Side Tracked.

Zig Ziglar see you on the top

On the way to the departure tracks, he came past some weight scales. ( the big ones you stand on it. ) John Jones looked at his watch and said: Ok got some time. So he took a coin and inserted into the machine. 

The Machine told him “your name is John Jones and you weight 188 Pounds and you take the train to Boston at 2.20 pm.”

Oh my, John Jones was stunned he thought that is a kind of trick and he took another coin and tried it on another weight scale machine.

To his surprised the machine said the same thing, Your Name is John Jones and your weight is 188 Pounds, and you take the train to Boston at 2.20 pm.

John Jones could not believe it and still thought it is a kind of trick, so he went into the bathroom changed his cloth and went back to the scale machine put a coin in the machine and the machine said. Your name is still John Jones, and you are still weighing 188 Pounds, but now you missed the train at 2.20 pm to Boston.

What is the meaning to me about this story?

I love this story, and I figured out that it means you miss in life the opportunities because you let yourself get sidetracked and miss the moment of an idea to bring into action. What do you understand about this story?
Without action, there is no success. The way to success is through discipline on staying focused on your goal, long or short term.

How easy is Affiliate Marketing really? The Story of Success.

Affiliate Marketing can be easy, but it can be a struggle for some. Many people promote to become famous overnight or rich overnight. Make Money in your sleep and so on. I know you heard it many times…

Never Give up

However, do you think a Rock star became famous overnight, that he woke up on a day and decided to play the guitar and become a Rockstar? No, he did not become overnight famous, he became famous because the rockstar practised over and over again, had a dream and a goal in mind. The Rockstar properly did jobs he did not like but they paid the bill, until one day all is falling into place.

Being at the right place at the right time.

He could not become famous if the Rock star would not have been practising and perusing his goal. He became good in what he wanted to be a Rock star playing the guitar.

The same is it with Affiliate Marketers they do many things, in the beginning, to get where they want to be.

One thing an Online Marketer should never forget is that to do all this is ok in the beginning but when you achieved continue small sales you need to scale it, and that means it is time to delegate the work to others.

Remember Time is money. The money you can recover, the only time you can never recover use it wisely.

How can you make more Affiliate Sales with your Website?

There are a few points you have to follow and still then no one can guarantee it works. All depends on you. One thing is for sure persistence, fine-tuning and continues what you do will eventually bring you the success you earned.

 

Graph to success don't give up

Graph explanation. What it actually means is that for an extended period of time you stay the same level 1-3 and have small success ups and down just enough to keep you going. 4 -5 is the time where you start to doubt yourself and a lot are giving up just short before you are on the way to succeed.

The more you swing, the higher you swing continue and repeat continue and repeat until one day you swing so high and you go up that you reach the top you made it you belong to the top.

Get started with Rule no. 1 of making more sales. Images are important.

Affiliate Links in Images.
Give your image an Affiliate Link, when you post an image make sure you insert the right affiliate link to that product.

Say you have a picture of the new Samsung tablet phone then make sure you add the link to it so people can go there check it out and buy it.
Many people if they move the cursor over your image might want to click on it. Important keep the affiliate Link relevant to your image.

Tip of the day. The Good idea is to check from time to time your broken links with free software called broken link checker. You can also use a plugin, but the site will do.

Writing a Post with the 4 Principles of AIDA( Attention, Interest, Desire, Action)

Whenever you write a post, you should create at the end of each post a paragraph or two and suggest a relevant affiliate product.

When you share your top 3 best smartphones in 2019, for example, you share all the tips on your final paragraph your conclusion but what you do is you add a paragraph or two, and you recommend a smartphone that is relevant to what was found in the content of that article.

You ask why because people who search for that article online changes are that they are looking for more information about that subject they wouldn’t even be searching for it.

Offer them a solution to there problem and recommend an affiliate product at the end of every post that you have and make sure it is relevant to the content in the post.

Tip. Do not over link your blog keep the links and the blog content in a good ratio — link relevant products to your Affiliate Offer.

ing a must for an Affiliate Marketer

Rule Nr. 3 Automate your Affiliate Links with a Plugin

Assuming that you have a Website, then make use of the plugins that help you automate the process.
There is a plugin that is free, and it is called the auto affiliate plugin.

What does it do? Well, it lets you pick keywords associated with your affiliate link.
That’s how it works, in short
For example, you can select your affiliate link, and you type Keywords related to this affiliate link. For example, say the new Samsung tablet phone, Samsung mobile phone, or Samsung smartphone anytime you use those phrases, or they show up on your website content (of course you have to type the content) it automatically is going to set up a no follow the link to your affiliate product.

Auto Affiliate Link Plugin

Now, this is a potent method and saves you time. Just put it into the right perspective, all of my three blogs have almost 2000 pages of content on each blog there are thousand and thousand maybe millions of words, but there are thousands of phrases that are linked to different affiliate products on Affiliate Programs. Like ( Amazon, Clickbank, Flipcart, Share a Sale, Rakuten and so on ) that I promote.

A straightforward way to automate the linking within your post. Just think about if you had to do it manually it would take you years to do it on every single post. Use the auto affiliate plugin it works like clockwork.

Tip: Before you install a plugin, please check the speed and make sure it does not slow down your site.
Do not go overboard with too many plugins.

Rule no. 4 Create Resource Pages on your Website

It is a good idea to have a suggested resources page on your website that lists all the different affiliate products you promote. Some people call this your money page or some people call it a resources page or suggested resources page.

It is an effective way to showcase the different products you have and what you want to link to this page throughout your website, so it is a highly visited page on your site.

Do not just show the products make small talk in writing with it
What you want to talk about is, what you like and don’t like about the product, why you recommend it and how it has helped you, what made you buy it or try it out.

Keep the description engaging talk about the benefits what your product can do. Always address again the problem you are solving.

Rule nr. 5 Widget on your website links them with your Affiliate Products.

That is on the right Colum of your blog you want to have a list of suggested products.
For example, my five products of the month are, or my ten best products are, then you have a link to each of those affiliate products right on the right Colum.

join wealthy affiliate today

That will show up on every page of your website make sure there are no follow links, but it works excellent and spices up your site.

Tip. Keep your widget on the side nice and neat don’t let them look spammy or all over the place, you can change them on a frequent interchange, so there are always new products and some old products.

Rule Nr. 6 Building the old good Email list.

Focus on building an email list is essential and you can then recommend your affiliate products in emails.
My Websites are trendy but what most people don’t know is that many of my affiliate sales come through my email marketing.

My goal with my websites is to get people onto my email list and then I recommend different affiliate products through email marketing. These are where most Affiliate Marketers generate correctly around 70% of all affiliate sales. If you are not building an email list, you are leaving a considerable amount of money on the table.

Most people who visit your website, they are not going to buy something the first time they visit your site or blog with the affiliate product. A study shows it takes around the 7x the exposure until a customer will buy your product. Sometimes even longer like 10 or maybe 20 exposures before they buy from you and your affiliate product.

That’s where email marketing comes in it keeps your visitors and email subscribers informed and connected to the affiliate product, the benefits you can communicate with them on a frequent base until they are ready to buy.

Tip. Do not spam and give your subscribers from time to time a gift for download or a free discount voucher for one of your affiliate products to try. Sent them a weekly or monthly newsletter called the outcome of the week or product of the month. I sometimes do best-selling product, and it is on sale.

Last, not least rule nr. 7 Common Mistakes Affiliate Newbies make.

I see many newbies make this mistake in promoting too many affiliate products if you want to promote then start with two or three affiliate products, not hundreds.

By all means, when you become a Master in Affiliate Marketing, you can promote as many products as you want, but don’t start to do it in the beginning.

Focus on two to three excellent affiliate products and promote those that you can focus you can concentrate you can test you can see what is working what is not working, you will know and have a good idea of what products become bestsellers and what products to get rid off.

If you promote too many things, your readers will feel overloaded, and you clutter down your blog. Ideally, you want to focus on two or three products, the maximum, in the beginning, is four affiliate products. Those are my seven secrets of making more affiliate sales on your blog or website, and I hope you liked it and please do me a favour and leave a comment if I forgot to cover some more rules.
