The DriveSales™ | Top 10 Work from Home practices for Salespeople!

With this pandemic outbreak and government indefinite lockdown restriction has led many things to pause. And you may be spending most of the time staying and working from home. With the present outset, it is difficult to identify when we will be able to go outside or to work from office for the foreseeable future, but it does not mean you cannot get any work done.

For some, working from home can become a challenge but with the advent of the latest technology, things are easier than before, however, leveraging those technologies and become friends is dependent upon an individual. For some salespeople, transitioning from an office environment to a work-from-remote scenario is not a major task at all since it is normal to meet clients outside of the office or via virtual meetings. But it has not occurred on such a large scale before. That is why some people are taking some time to settle into the remote work culture.

Here are the 10-best work from home practices you can adapt to maximize your productivity.

2) Keep your workstation clean — Keeping your workstation in order can help you manage tasks easily — it is become easy to locate pen and paper while you are on call or meeting.
