My Home Office Setup for Remote Work During The Emergency Lockdown

My Home Office Setup for Remote Work During The Emergency Lockdown

It’s a time of change, it’s a time of novelty.

Now that working from home, telecommuting or working remotely is a new reality for many due to social distancing and lockdowns, I am preparing myself to teach and blog from my living room for the foreseeable near future.

Recent studies show that remote employees that work online from anywhere are far more productive than in a standard office as they require less time to get ready or commute to work.

Let’s see if I can put this theory to the test while creating a comfy home office with hopefully the best home office layout design I can come up with.

Analysis of my Current Work Situation at School and Home

Teacher-working-with-parents-and-students-in-classroom-and-school

So far, I have mainly taught in the classroom on a daily basis so this was my main work place. Here, I would have a desk with a laptop and I would spend probably one to two quarters of my day documenting, communicating and sharing my classroom work on the computer. The rest of the work day would be actively teaching, preparing activities, cleaning or tidying and of course most importantly interacting.

I have therefore never really set up a so called home office. I usually work on my laptop when blogging, sitting on my sofa, my bed or my bean bag when I am at home. With the majority of my time being spent using the computer during this isolation period, I probably will have to change that. Because apparently posture and efficiency are better in a properly set up home office.

How to rearrange the Home and Routine for a better Home Office Experience?

Remote-worker-setting-up-home-office-for-more-online-work-efficiency

Online orders have shot up during national lockdowns and so it is only natural that I start to browse Amazon and Co. for some home office equipment. However, I don’t want to rearrange my whole living room, so I try to look into options to use the furniture I already have and how to optimise it.

What can I change in my living room/main home office space?

I have a dining table and an office chair. It’s a good height and provides sufficient space. During the first few daysadjustable-standing-and-sitting-home-office-desk-for-blogging I work from here. I feel good, I hold video conference calls and write documents, emails, articles, but somehow I don’t enjoy facing the wall opposite me.

I remember that I have an empty space next to my big balcony window with a view out to Canary Wharf. I purchase a foldable home office desk with two slim tables that are adjustable in height and wheels so that it is mobile.

I create space for all my things and I feel better looking out the window every now and then and enjoying the light coming in. Another plus is that I’m not next to the fridge any longer, which is tempting to eat more and take more short breaks. Maybe because I am “locked in”, I have more of a desire to look out.

I improve my posture by alternating between working while sitting and standing up whenever I feel a need to. This also helps me from getting a stiff neck and back, which I tend to get easily. In between I can stretch or do a few yoga poses to refresh my body and mind.

What else to consider apart from the office space?

Since I won’t spend much at this stage, I want to focus on the basics plus the non-material aspects.

Lighthome-office-space-organisation-for-good-light

Looking at the light, I feel having the desk by the window is a good choice as I’m utilising the natural light as much as possible. I won’t really need a desk lamp for most of the day and by that I also save energy. The sunlight streaming in doesn’t cause any disruption as my desk is in front of the wall, so not directly in the sun. We all know that natural sunlight has a lot of health benefits like being a good source of Vitamin D or increasing energy levels and productivity, so I’m happy with this decision.

Space Organisation

Taking a look at the organisation of the space around my desk, I have everything I might need to grab or get near me on my shelves. By that I’m avoiding time loss to fetch documents, gadgets or office tools. It’s not cluttered, but organised in different drawers and shelves, so it’s easily available.

Nutrition and noise

My living room is open plan and the kitchen is part of it. The good thing about it is that I Healthy-foods-for-remote-workers-working-from-homedon’t have to go far to grab a drink or food. The bad thing is that it can be tempting to take more snack breaks. However, staying hydrated throughout the day is important for a good performance level. And obviously eating healthy and light meals, so having fruits and vegetables handy should do the job.

The other aspect is noise. There aren’t many loud noises around me usually, but of course, preparing food in the kitchen can be distracting. If that was the case, I could consider wearing headphones, playing my music playlist on Spotify or my audio book on Audible. Another tip for people who work better with white noise are sites like Coffitivity or Noisli for background noise that improves focus and productivity.

Movement

As already mentioned, my adjustable desk allows me to stand up instead of sitting when I feel like it. While standing I could make calls, hold video chats and virtual meetings or record videos such as tutorials. Writing also works while standing, but works slightly better when being seated I feel in terms of my posture. Because my office desk is mobile, I can move it around in my living room, which enables me to watch something on my laptop while cooking for example. However, it is also important for me to allocate time slots where I stretch, do some yoga or a quick workout.

Scheduling

I realise that I need to structure my day more effectively. The morning is probably the best time to be active and use the energy to hold meetings, record videos, delegate tasks and make phone calls. The afternoon is more suitable for writing and editing tasks, where I have to be focused and should avoid interruptions through messages and phone calls. It’s obviously not always possible to stick to the schedule, but to have a rough outline of the work day helps to get things done effectively with a goal in mind.

Breaks should also be part of this. I usually take a snack break and a movement break every 2-3 hours. I have also found it useful to set myself goals for the day in the morning that are achievable in a day, which lead to achieving my long-term goals set out for the month or year. I use my Paulo Coelho planner for this and prefer to note it down in a handwritten manner.

Me-time

I start the day with a 10 minute meditation and a physical exercise to get ready for work. Mostly I do 30Being-active-for-best-posture-when-working-online-on-computer minutes of yoga or HIIT exercises. This wakes me up, prepares me and helps me plan the day ahead. I just have a coffee and a smoothie before getting started with work. My couch is next to my desk so if I feel like taking a little time out, I can just briefly lie down or take my bean bag to the balcony to catch a bit of sun for a breather.

3 Lessons Learned From Remote Working during Lockdown #1

Lesson #1

Working from home has been challenging at times, especially with regards to delivering education in the same format and way as in the classroom at school and there are certainly many limitations to overcome in the future to provide remote learning and teaching at a high level that is satisfactory for everyone involved. I have covered these challenges in more detail on the UK Education Blog:

8 Most Pressing Challenges in Education Arising from the COVID-19 Pandemic

Lesson #2

Overall, it has been a pleasant experience though for me personally. I felt I could be more productive while using the additional time I had for outstanding tasks, because I didn’t have to commute. I also had more time to exercise and communicate with others via video chat and messaging platforms and was therefore able to devote more time to pastoral or team-related matters. This was vital during this period of complete isolation from colleagues, students and all other social contacts.

Lesson #3

I can certify that improving my home office has helped me feeling better working on the computer all day long and has improved my focus and enjoyment while working. I would highly recommend an adjustable and mobile desk to alternate between standing, sitting and moving around. There’s a reason why Microsoft Eyes Guard reminds us to take short breaks every 30 minutes or so. One should also bear this in mind when scheduling meetings to ensure they have 5 minute breaks in between each. I have written articles about home office improvement options:

Best 5 SEO Copywriting Success Factors Every Content Writer Needs To Rank

Best 5 SEO Copywriting Success Factors Every Content Writer Needs To Rank

Writing effective copy for your website is tough.

It’s even tougher to write content that gets recognized by search engines, captivates your audience, and increases conversions organically.

It is more vital than ever before to know how to write content that ranks high, gets clicks, and improves sales.

The goal of SEO copywriting is to drive traffic and attention to a blog or business website. But this is not straight forward and requires many steps and skills.

At SeekaHost University I teach some of the aspects I cover in this article in my SEO content writing course, so if you want to know more you should check it out.

Let’s take a look at the most important elements that attract your audience, increase traffic, and boost conversions.

1. Write For Human Readers, Optimize For Bots

As an SEO copywriter, the most basic rule you must always apply is to create content for humans before optimizing for robots.

Write For Human Readers, Optimize For Bots - Best 5 SEO Copywriting Success Factors Every Content Writer Needs To RankTime and again, SEO copywriters, marketing specialists, and decision-makers think of controlling the entire process and try to influence algorithms. But the aim of great content should be to benefit and engage readers, as audiences make purchases, search engines don’t.

The key to creating outstanding content is to consider the content consumption and interests of your readership.

This includes the 5 Ws of writing – who, what, when, where, and why.

Who identifies the demographic factors such as age, gender, education level, income level, marital status, occupation of people searching your content.

What type of content are they searching for, their precise question(s), what’s their requirement, what’s their objective?

When does the search for content take place dives into seasonal SEO (air conditioners during summers or chocolates during Valentine’s Day)?

Where are they, not only geographically, but are they accessing content on the move, are they interacting with your content on mobile devices, etc.

Why answers the user intent, why people are searching for your content, why they need your services or solutions.

You need to research all of these five components with SEO tools to optimize your content, and you will achieve this by being attentive towards your potential readers and customers. By creating that valuable content with the help of SEO you will also optimize your content for robots crawling your posts or pages.

2. Related Terms – LSI, Synonyms and Keyword Variations Matter

Using related terms in your content is one of the ways that you could create content that triggers a surge in qualified leads, and expands your sales.Related Terms – LSI, Synonyms and Keyword Variations Matter - Best 5 SEO Copywriting Success Factors Every Content Writer Needs To Rank

Algorithms over the years have advanced, so, to get your content to rank higher in search engines, you can use LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing) keywords.

Use LSI keywords and keyword variations throughout your content to achieve a far-reaching footprint. This also encourages search engines to recognize you as the trusted destination for the solution you are promoting with your content.

Having a larger and deeper keyword footprint will enable you to gain a profound association with your prospective clientele. Give this a try yourself by using LSIGraph!

3. Length And Quality – Elaborate To Get Ranked

Have you considered the role length and quality play in your content?

To get listed in the top search results page of a search engine, you need to generate content regularly that’s beneficial and serves a purpose for your customers, but it also must be in-depth.

The lengthier your content, the higher are your chances of ranking. Lengthy content offers you as a content writer a larger ground to operate with and create content that includes LSI keywords, keyword variation, and addresses questions in depth.

To incorporate this strategy, expand on what your customer’s needs and questions are, what they are looking for, what their issues are, and how your content can address their demands.

Providing value and vision will naturally create lengthier content, and consequently, achieve better rankings by covering more relevant keywords and search terms.

You can see how we as SEO experts at ClickDo Ltd. and SeekaHost University go about that in some of our case studies:

4. Long-Tail Keywords – Extend to Win

The online competition is getting fierce increasingly, whether it’s giant or niche businesses trying to capture and monopolize your industry.Long-Tail Keywords – Extend to Win - Best 5 SEO Copywriting Success Factors Every Content Writer Needs To Rank

The optimum content optimization method to expand is by incorporating long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords face lower challenges as compared to short-tail keywords when it comes to rank difficulty (RD), as a result, they are easier to rank.

Even if the search volume is lower, by applying the long-tail keywords approach, your content will compete with less competitive content and you can gain qualified leads. Long-tail keywords are easier to rank and bring in high-quality traffic as they are more specific in answering the who, what, when, where, and why questions of your consumer.

You can see how I use long-tail keywords in blog posts successfully to drive more traffic to a client’s website:

Together with my team at ClickDo Ltd. I researched and found the long-tail keyword “how much does Invisalign cost” and because the orthodontist client offered this treatment we composed an article about it, adding this and other related short and long-tail keywords to the headings and main body text.

You can see that the monthly page visits to this blog post grew by over 22,000+ within six months. Clearly, this is a very effective method.

5. Answer Questions – Answers are Key

People make countless queries on search engines every single day.

It’s your responsibility as an SEO copywriter to research and answer your target audience’s questions, so they understand your solution better and are persuaded to use it.Answer Questions – Answers are Key

Work with exact match keywords and users’ questions in your H2, H3 headings, or content that will allow search engines to recognize your text as highly beneficial to your audience’s needs.

By using an exact match, you are incorporating questions that customers are asking, and through your content, you are providing valuable answers, leading to higher ranks of articles or pages. The easiest form of doing that is by adding FAQs to your text. You can use the Answer The Public keyword tool to get started or you can watch how we at ClickDo Ltd. go about keyword searches in our SeekaHost University courses.

These were some actionable tips for great SEO copywriting that you can use immediately.

Now I’ve got a challenge for you: Pick one of your most popular pages or articles and optimize it by applying these SEO copywriting tips to see the difference yourself. Share your outcomes in our blogging demystified FB group or get in touch with me if you need some support.

11 Home Business Ideas For Freelance Copywriters For An Extra Income

11 Home Business Ideas For Freelance Copywriters For An Extra Income

Do you usually get judgemental looks saying you work as a freelance copywriter or are striving to become one?

Or do you yourself have doubts about becoming a freelance content writer?

Then here’s a secret from one copywriter to another: you can completely change your income potential once you start thinking like an entrepreneur and tweak your approach towards freelance copywriting.

Let’s look at a few avenues of freelance copywriting that can be your home-based side hustle you can start even while working full-time as I do:

1. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Writing

Every organization wants its website or mobile-optimized site to rank higher in the search engines. The search engines are more likely to rank a website with original quality content. SEO copywriting should capture the search engine traffic to serve the potential customers, and at the same time, be SEO friendly. You can offer this service on freelance content writer job platforms to have some extra cash coming in.

2. Resumes and Cover Letter Writing

Resumes and Cover Letter WritingIt is a well-known fact that recruiters spend just 6 seconds to evaluate an individual’s resume. A job seeker needs to make those seconds count and grab eyeballs. Often job seekers tend to write lengthy resumes losing focus on important details.

A copywriter can leverage their skill to craft compelling resumes, highlighting the right skills of the job seeker in an engaging way, making a strong impact on the potential employer. They can turn into a professional resume writer and be a game-changer for many job seekers, who will happily pay for their writing services to land that dream job.

3. Blog Writing

Blogs are easy to use and an important marketing strategy tool to share thoughts, opinions, insights, and news. Blogs can be personal, niche-based, or business-oriented. In a personal blog, the copywriter has the freedom to choose the topic, tone, theme, approach, and direction. The stickiness of the content will bring in viewers and ultimately make it profitable. You could also work for a blog network or a company to blog about and for them as I do. Working for a digital marketing company like ClickDo Ltd. helped me learn about blogging and managing a range of blogs in various niches, where I act as a chief editor and also manage the guest posting services.

4. Event Marketing Collateral Writing

Collaterals at a business event, workshop, or conference help create a brand identity, weave a story for the brand, and support the business message. Collaterals such as brochures, leaflets, product catalogs add value to the delegates and help them take something tangible from the event. A killer copywriting for such collaterals is essential to reach the right audience and promote the business also online via email marketing for example.

5. Biography and Memoir Writing

Biographies and memoirs provide a closer look at an individual’s life and vision. Well written biographies and memoirs for a magazine, brochure, website, or even LinkedIn, have a high impact in influencing and inspiring people. Best-selling biographies or memoirs of celebrities, politicians, notable personalities, or even regular people with a compelling story have a chance of being turned into a movie, TV show, or web series.

6. Script Writing

Script Writing - Extra Income For WriterThis is a great time to be delving into scriptwriting, as it’s not just for feature-films anymore. Today a script can be written for short films, web series, YouTube videos, video games. If you have a passion for drama or digital storytelling and providing entertainment to an audience then you can start to promote your services online on sites like Craigslist, Glassdoor, Indeed, to mention a few. After you get a few projects assigned, you can build your own website to showcase these in your portfolio.

7. Annual Report Writing

Every public company is required to publish an annual report, incorporating all the important details without putting its reader to sleep. A freelance writer can provide their proficiency to simplify, but at the same time give the report a professional tone.

8. Writing eBooks

Publishing has become easier in the digital age, and eBooks are a great way to create a passive income stream. You could either work with an organization or self-publish. Organizations use eBooks as a marketing tool to entice customers to make a purchase. As a self-publisher, you have complete control over the topic, tone, marketing, and customer base. See my Kindle eBook here, in which I also explain in detail how to earn an income as a writer.

9. Specialist Writing

Over the last few years, technical or specialist writing has become an upcoming profession. Technical writing entails documenting software manuals, product details, help guides in a readable, user-friendly manner. Freelance copywriters have an opportunity here to upskill and discover a niche market such as medicine, law, or education. With distance and online learning becoming a common feature, you could be a subject matter expert to lead the academic curriculum design to meet the needs of students and teachers. Or you could write a niche blog about your own expertise like the money-saving expert did, which you can read more about in my article here.

10. Ghostwriting

You probably have a fair idea about ghostwriting and how it works. Ghostwriters are hired by people who are not good at writing and don’t have the time to invest in learning the craft. Ghostwriting takes the pressure off of marketing and promotion of the work and provides you the exposure in various niches such as books, columns, eBooks, blog posts, speeches, social media, white papers, and even song lyrics.

11. Business Plan and Business Proposal Writing

With everyone riding high on the start-up business wave, it is essential to have a kickass business proposal and business plan to instantly win an affirmative nod from the investors or a client. A writer can infuse life in the vision and mission of the entrepreneur and business with words.

Other forms of freelance writing are grant writing, speechwriting, press releases, media kits, PowerPoint presentations, translation, and transcription, so you’re left with so many options to explore and turn into money-making opportunities.

As a freelance content writer, it is important to find your niche and test and practice writing in multiple domains first before you identify your true writing talent and passion. Once you have an idea of what it is you love writing about, you should upskill and learn more about it, even go to the length of doing a course, which will improve your chances to become a professional in your chosen niche and command the right price.
