Affiliate Tips: Work Smarter from Home

Do you work from home?

The numbers indicate that one in five Americans do. We realize that most affiliate marketers do so as well, which is why we thought it’d helpful to provide a few ideas to make the experience a healthier and more rewarding one.




  1. Make a Schedule (and Stick to it!): If you work from home, you may think you don’t need to make a schedule because you aren’t physically going into work. That’s a rookie mistake, because you are going into work! It’s important to make a schedule and stick to it, because without one, you may start doing less and less work, until you’re productivity completely drops.
  1. Create a to-do list at the end of your workday: Writers as diverse as Ernest Hemmingway and John Waters say one of the keys to becoming a successful writer is to leave yourself a starting point the next day. You don’t want to come into a cold, blank sheet of paper. Likewise, you don’t want to start your work day without a sense of direction. Leave yourself a short list of things to do at the end of each day.
  1. Exercise is Important: If you spend the vast majority of your day sitting at your desk, banging away at your keyboard, you’re doing your body a real disservice. Over time, you will develop back problems, wrist issues, and the increased likelihood of unwanted weight gain. So, it’s time to get up! Stretching is vital to keeping your muscles limber. Taking a walk at some point during the day will help, too. If you can spring for a massage from time to time, by all means do so.
  1. Exercise is Important… for Your Brain: Exercise doesn’t just help your muscles, it helps your brain too. WebMD notes that “exercise is really for the brain, not the body. It affects mood, vitality, alertness, and feelings of well-being.” When you get tired of walking around the neighborhood, go to a library, café or a park. Anywhere but your desk. Of course, we understand if you bring your phone along.
  1. Spring for a Good Chair: One of the first decisions you will make when starting your business is your work chair. It’s a no-brainer. Spring for the better one. It’ll be money well spent.

There are a ton of benefits to working from home, but there are also a ton of bad habits waiting for us too. Control your workspace and take control of your day every day. It’ll pay dividends in every aspect of your life!
