Is it the physical product or service? Is it PR and marketing? Is it the online presence? According to a business’ brand isn’t defined by any of those things.

Your brand is derived from who you are, who you want to be and who people perceive you to be. defines it slightly differently:

A brand is not just a logo, ad campaign, spokesperson or slogan. Rather a brand is a product of the millions of experiences a company creates with employees, vendors, reporters, communities, and customers—and the emotional feelings these groups develop as a result of their experiences

Some of the best examples of branding are Coca Cola, Apple, Nike.  For their customers each of these brands bring a unique experience to mind.  It’s the emotional connection that we’ve attached to their products or services that creates their brand.  As a business have you created memorable moments or emotional connections for your customers that would define your brand?  If no, here’s some questions that you should ask yourself says

  • What’s your company’s mission?
  • What are the benefits and features of your product or service?
  • What’s your customer’s perception of your business?

So you’ve escaped the cubicle life your fellow employees face every day. You can work anyplace you want as long as you are producing the desired results. It’s new daunting experience to work remotely, kind of like going solo after being in the boy band or girl group for so long. But there are some things you can do to ensure you get the most of working remotely.

This insightful infographic shares a few tips and best practices in working remotely for both employee and the head person in charge. Here’s five we’d like to highlight:

1. Communicate well and often: With all the technology available to you, be sure to communicate with fellow employees, and of course, the boss. Though you and other employees may be working alone at a space like Choice Coworking, you must figure out how best to keep in touch with them and of course, the boss.

2. Use collaborative applications or software: If you’re the boss, then providing the right tools that allow for collaboration amongst employees near and far will be key to getting the most of having employees working remotely.

3. List who’s working where and what time zone: So the VA is on the east coast, the director is on the west, and the boss is in the midwest. Is there a directory or listing easily accessible to everyone involved? If no, create one!

4. Go old school and call: Yes, email and messaging are great for communication, but the old school phone call still works wonders! Conference calls especially keep everyone abreast of what’s going on and provide listeners a chance to also multi-task if needed.

5. Go new school and use video: Video messaging and communicating isn’t just for the kids. Many businesses incorporate video streaming into the communication mix. Whether you’re the boss or the employee working remotely video makes the distance between parties seem less. Not to mention, sentiment nor meaning is lost as it often is with text messaging and email.

Now take a look at the other tips shared in this infographic on how to get the best out of working remotely.
