The Covid-19 pandemic led to the reboot of businesses worldwide. Several businesses were caught off-guard and a test of resiliency had been put into motion. Several tech companies scrambled towards the new normal. From flexible working arrangements to work from home strategies, several workers had to jump into the world of online work.
At Compumatrix, the “new normal” had been our default way of life since its inception. However, it doesn’t mean that we are resilient to the changes posed by the pandemic. We are still at a status quo between getting paid first to work or work first to get paid.
Compumatrix battle cry is to Engage, Enrich and Enhance Life. The mission in itself is straightforward. It should be followed in its proper order.
Focus on the word: Engage
Many of us would rather earn a living by working for ourselves than for someone else. Before jumping into the world of freelancers or self-employment, you need to ask yourself if you are ready to engage in a whole new ball game. Is it really the right thing for you to do?
It is not going to be easy. But one thing for sure, you need to have the ability and the capability. It takes money to make money. The same principle is true with online work.
Now, even if you do have the ability to do your work and the capability to fulfill demands you can’t just trust your friends to jump on board with you. Try as you may, you simply cannot run your business without clients or customers. You can’t just sit back and wait for things to happen. You have to make things happen. ENGAGE with your potential customers. Write your personal story. Eventually, what you want to accomplish is turning your customer into who you are now. In marketing, good things don’t happen to those who wait.
So, how do you tell the world about your business? There are many ways to accomplish this task. Just make sure that your message is not lost among the thousands of others competing for your customer’s attention. Always remember that it all starts with your personal story and journey.
What would be your story if you don’t have results yet? How do you measure your results? Is it in terms of what you’ve learned or is it how much you’ve earned? As a neophyte in the world of online work, everyone starts with a clean slate. What has inspired you to work from home? What is your goal in life or what is it that will finally say that you have succeeded? Every success story is different for every person because of the way they define it which is great. Your success story is an embodiment of your very unique outlook in life.
