The B2B Brand Differentiator
Is your business brand more milquetoast or marketing genius? Bland or bold? Try our Differentiator to find out!
Working from home is becoming more and more common. Whether you’re a student studying from afar, a nomadic marketer (hi) hopping in and out of coffee shops, or someone who needs flexible working options to fit around your life, remote work is both possible and productive. It doesn’t have to be disruptive and can in fact open up new opportunities for better collaboration – take it from a business that’s been doing it for over 15 years.
In fact, any business can enable remote working with the right tools and methods. We’ve written plenty of content on the subject, which we link to below, along with our best recommendations for tools, articles from across the internet full of top-notch advice, and everything else you could possibly need to make working from home a success.
2020 UPDATE: If you are reading this because you or your organisation has been affected by the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, we hope this information is helpful. As a B Corp, we are committed to being a business that is a force for good. To stay up to date on the latest developments and advice, please go to these sources:
Here is a list of relevant articles that we’ve written on the Articulate Marketing blog; on the sister site for our own HR app, Turbine, or on our CEO’s personal management blog, GeekBoss, and elsewhere.
Here are links to tools that you may be considering as part of your suite of workplace applications. We have either used these in the past, use them now or have heard good things from people we trust. Some may have multiple uses, and, where particularly appropriate, we may list the same app in two sections.
If you’re an organisation leader or a department manager that is just starting to figure out agile working methods, we advise putting together a list of your team’s requirements and then reviewing each tool against that list. That way, you’re less likely to get swept up in the razzle-dazzle of product features.
