Home-based workers can find themselves easily distracted. You open a social media app like Facebook or Twitter to ‘check in’ to the feeds in your mystery shopping groups. Two hours later you realize you never even clicked on the group.
You followed the blue like button and red hearts. You caught up with your cousin in Arizona. Got angry over the latest political rants. And gave yourself some balance by watching a few heart-warming military family reunions. Now it’s time to make lunch, pick up the kids or go to a meeting.
And you’ve got no new jobs or contacts to show for all the time you just spent clicking around.
Is it worth thinking about social media as an avenue for finding work?
Yes – absolutely!
