Items That Every Webmaster/Online Marketer Should Own
If you run a website or otherwise work online then this gives you a very specific lifestyle and a very specific set of daily activities. Someone who earns their living from home typing on the computer of course has a very different working experience to someone who earns their living by going out into an office and working at a desk with colleagues all day, and this means they require specific, different items in order to thrive.
At the same time if you work online then let’s face it, you’re probably pretty pleased with yourself and wouldn’t mind people knowing that you’re actually a genius entrepreneur. With that in mind you will probably enjoy collecting all of the paraphernalia that you would normally associate with entrepreneurmanship and the spirit of industry/the pursuit of knowledge.
Here then we will look at some things to add to your Christmas list that will make your desk look much cooler, will make people in the street more impressed with your clear tech-savvy, and that will genuinely help you to get more from your working day and to progress your online business.
Parker Pen: Owning a parker pen shows that you write often and that you care about presentation and style. A parker pen is a highly personal items like a watch or like a ring, but has a very practical use. These are very much under-rated and something that more people should own. Meanwhile you should also carry a notepad and this will allow you to jot down notes as they come to you and look just like that kind of scatter-brained genius who always is having new ideas.
Tablet: Tablets are becoming a real status symbol as well as a very useful product for quickly accessing the web. If you are meeting a client and offering them web design or SEO services then they will probably be surprised and shocked to learn you don’t own a tablet – so you should probably pick one up. Of course you should also try to impress with a smartphone and having such a capable device that fits in your pocket will prove highly useful. I personally opted for the ‘phabet’ option – the Galaxy Note with a custom ROM.
Bag: An entrepreneur should have a cool bag – simple as that. This should be a bag into which they can slip their laptops/tablets/notebooks and it should have multiple compartments, some form of security and probably a leather finish to really look premium and help sell your professionalism.
Smart Watch: Want to be just ahead of the curve? Then investing in a smart watch might be a cool way to achieve that. At the same time this will allow you to check messages and screen calls without even getting your phone out which can actually aid productivity.
Receipt Box: On your desk it’s a good idea to have a receipt box that you can use to keep and organize all your future receipts. This is a very effective way to ensure you keep on track of your finances to help your accountant out and it also looks organized and thoughtful.
Business Card: Any business man or woman be they online or otherwise would be smart to own a business card. Networking and making connections can make all the difference in terms of your success and business cards are highly conducive to that process.
