Work Life


Like it or not, SEO has always been important for any brand’s marketing plan, but when things do return back to normal, SEO is going to be more important than ever for your business.

This is why you need to continue your SEO efforts and planning even through a pandemic. You will need to shift your strategies to deal with how things will be after the pandemic, which is hard to predict at the moment. But you can still continue to work on your SEO so that you can come out of this on top of things and ahead of your competition.

The Power is in the Search

A number of goods are hard to find nowadays and they could continue to be hard to find even in the future. When things are scarce, people will search for it! If what they are looking for isn’t available, they will then search for alternatives.

Which is why your brand needs to be present on the web to capitalize on scarce items. Try to work your way up the rank with your SEO efforts.

Don’t Become Invisible

People are still in need of products and services and will be more so when the pandemic ends. Your brand never wants to become a ghost online during these times. The last thing you want to do is start at the bottom when things return back to normal.

 You can reach your consumers with your SEO marketing. So, if you haven’t already been working on a strong SEO plan, now is the time to jump on board.

 Show Support

Showing support during this time gives people hope. It helps for your brand to be available and deal with the masses. Before things return back to normal, you will need to re-evaluate things and be ready for what comes next. Things may not return exactly to what they were, but if you can adjust your SEO to fit the new normal, you will be good to go.

 Since you are already staying relevant during a pandemic, when things do normalize, your clients will still have their trust in you. It will take time to work on an effective SEO pan, but if you start now, you will be able to see the benefits when this is all over. And this is when you want to see your results most.   

Leave it the Professionals

This is definitely a tricky time for marketing. If you are unsure how to continue with your SEO efforts, work with a Phoenix SEO agency to guide the way. Remember, you aren’t in this alone and all brands are facing unique challenges, which is why it is sometimes best to leave it up to the pros. 


You wake up each day, gulp down your coffee and get in your car to drive to work. Along the way you see children laughing and playing and long for your younger days when life was simple and fun. The truth is that many people, as they grow older, lose sight of themselves and focus on making others happy. They invest time and money on sending their children to sports camps or ballet classes. While this is all good stuff, there’s one person missing, and that’s you. It’s important to make the most of each day so that everyone in your family lives a full and healthy life.

Get Your Finances in Order

Spending money to live a certain lifestyle can leave you strapped for cash and depressed. In order to enjoy a better quality of life, you need to get your finances in order. Establishing a budget and utilizing it will go a long way towards providing relief of your internal stress. If you have several credit cards and they are close to their limit, make an effort to start using your cash and avoid accumulating any more debt. If you are cash poor due to a number of small payments on a multitude of credit cards, you can apply for a monthly installment loan to consolidate them into one affordable payment. This will free up money and help you to reduce your stress so you can start enjoying life.

Make Time for You

In order to live life to the fullest, you need to not only stay physically fit and eat right, but you also need to do something that makes you happy. Otherwise, as time goes by, you’ll start to feel resentment towards others. Lose the guilt and make time for yourself. There’s nothing wrong with having a hobby or taking a day once a month and dedicating it to yourself. In fact, you’ll return energized and fulfilled, allowing you to join your family in feeling satisfied.  If you enjoy nature, go on a hike. If you like to draw, take up an art class.

Surround Yourself with Positive People

A doom and gloom environment can sap the happy feelings out of your body and send you quickly into a state of depression. Life’s too short for negativity. Instead of hanging out with people who focus on the bad side of everything, surround yourself with good friends and family members who love life. Remaining in a state of negative thoughts can affect your mental and physical health and leave you feeling lost and confused. On the other hand, spending time with people who are positive and upbeat helps you feel happy and content.

Eliminate the Waste

Most people waste a lot of time doing nothing. While there’s nothing wrong with kicking back and relaxing on the weekend, you only have this time to spend with loved ones and doing things you enjoy. Instead of taking the usual cat nap, get in the car and take a drive with no particular end place in mind and experience life on the spur of the moment.

Life is a gift most people take for granted. Clear up all the things that hold you back such as debt or negative thinking and start making the most of each day.

For many employees, the modern workforce is increasingly transitioning toward remote possibilities. Remote work becomes more popular every year and offers employees improved balance and flexibility. But that doesn’t mean that working from home is easy. Staying engaged and organized throughout the day can be a reoccurring struggle, especially when employees are trying to adjust. To help you get the most out of your remote experience, we’ve put together everything you need to know about staying productive and organized while working from home.

Set Clear Expectations

The first step toward staying organized at home is establishing clear expectations with those around you. People often misunderstand that just because you’re home, doesn’t mean you are available. Help roommates, children, your partner, or anyone else living in the home understand that you are still working and can’t always socialize or be disturbed. You might also consider hiring a part-time babysitter during your most productive hours. This understanding is also important for any outside friends and family who might expect anytime availability.

Create A Work Environment

Working from home gives you comfort and freedom, but that doesn’t mean every day is pajama day. Getting dressed and prepared every morning will help you feel more alert and ready to go. Similarly, it’s important to set aside a designated desk, office, or work area. Establishing a specific workspace mentally prepares you to be at work and removes the temptation to finally clean your room, do a little meal prep, catch up on a new episode, or give in to whatever kind of at home distractions threaten your productivity.

Set A Regular Schedule

Humans are ultimately creatures of habit and work best to well-defined patterns. Setting a regular work schedule creates familiarity, making it easier to get started and stay organized throughout the day. Most importantly though, a work schedule establishes a regular start and stop time to your workday. This helps you stay dedicated during work hours and improves regular coworker contact. An established stop time also creates an effective work/life balance. Working sporadically can easily extend a normal workload into a 10 or 12 hour day.

Utilize Your Productivity

Just because you create a work schedule, don’t feel like you have to be confined to the traditional 8-5. One of the best parts of working remotely is the freedom to create an accommodating schedule. This can mean working around existing obligation, but it can also mean utilizing your most productive moments. If you work best during the evening hours or are refreshed after a midmorning run, build your schedule around those opportunities. Remote work lets you unlock your best abilities by taking advantage of nontraditional or even nonconsecutive work times.

Keep A Paper Planner

Planners are the best way to keep track of both day to day activities and unusual or sporadic events. Planners visually represent the day, making it easier to understand and prepare for, and helping you to feel more organized and in control. Paper planners are particularly beneficial for staying organized while working at home. Paper planners, unlike their digital counterparts, are put away at the end of the day and inaccessible outside of your designated workspace. This gives you work a sense of completion, making the transition from work time to social time much easier.

Regular Self Reflection

Staying organized while working from home also means more self-awareness and accountability. While breaks are important of course, it’s easy for them to get out of hand. Take time to identify your most distracting time wasters and put methods in place to make them less accessible, especially when you are stressed or bored. Regularly follow up with yourself about spending time and minimizing distractions appropriately. Keeping an occasional time log of your activities can also be used to give you a gauge of how distracted you are during the typical day.

Keep Up With Your Office

Working remotely can feel isolating, and remote workers often report feeling lonely or out of the loop. It’s important to make the extra effort to keep in contact with your office and your coworkers regularly. Regular contact will keep you organize and up-to-date and will help you strengthen social relationships with your coworkers. If you work freelance or are unable to connect with your coworkers often, set aside time to talk with a roommate, a neighbor, or even a barista every once and a while.

While working from home brings freedom, adaptation and better work/life balance, it also comes with its fair share of challenges. Staying focused, organized and on task in a home office can feel like a monumental task, especially if your bed is only a few feet away. Thankfully, with increased technology, the workforce is learning to adapt and improvise together. With a little practice and dedication, staying organized while working at home can be a breeze.
