With the constant push of society to provide eco friendly alternatives for almost everything, the development of co-working spaces was inevitable. Co-working spaces bring together freelancers of all industries and backgrounds to one common space for unlimited networking and creative vibes. In addition to the benefits of the collaborative work environment, co-working spaces promote more energy efficient work spaces due to the usage of one building or unit instead of every occupant having their own office.
There are many benefits of co-working with others instead of having to be isolated alone in your own mental or physical office space. Although some prefer to be left to work at their own pace to accomplish their daily tasks, they may just not have had the right experiences before to deem it worthy of repeating. In fact, combining forces with the right coworker may reduce the amount of time needed to complete an assignment. At worst, it could spark up an in-depth conversation with the co-worker that helps the time pass and gets the day over with before you even realize how much of a drawn out day it actually could have been if that interests you. Keep reading in order to find out how combining mental capabilities can actually give you a more enjoyable experience overall and trick your bosses into thinking that you are doing more than you actual are, thus reducing stress or creating better profit margins.
The first obvious advantage is the reduction of workload that would be placed on the teammates individually and as a whole. Of course, this refers to the type of work that may be considered endless in nature, such as internet marketing promotional efforts. Although each individual project may have a set amount of time that will be required as it is to be completed, the end for newly-effective diversification efforts will always require as much time as you can invest into it.For example, many internet marketers work freelance, which gives them the freedom to work within the constraints of their own personal schedule with a few exceptions for rushed deadlines. Although this sounds ideal, most find that they need to diversify their client lists and skills in order to stay ahead of industry changes. Not putting in the needed effort to complete this part of your responsibility could result in being left in the dust after a industry change completely turns it on top of itself in terms of available work.
That being said, diversification is basically an unpaid part of the job description for many, if not most, freelance internet marketers. Dividing the time being reserved within your weekly work schedule amongst the coworkers in your assembled team in order to search for new clients to add to your roster is a great idea. Since many reserve this time when they are working individually based off either their free time from actually completing marketing projects, or when they have determined the best time within that period to find the best leads, collaborating efforts just makes logical sense.
Some workers prefer to be as busy as they can possibly be throughout the day in order to get out the door without having to constantly look at the clock every five minutes as it inches by. Working as a team may allow for taking on more work as needed if you are working on a larger scale project that may be a collection of data say for the next month or so. Although the initial pros of the decision may not be obviously apparent at the beginning of the process with this type of work, when you start to notice that these monthly or weekly projects are being completed a few days earlier than they have by previous patterns, the advantage can easily be seen.
If one chooses to work alone without the constant communication with coworkers, there are still ways to advantage from assembling a team. This is especially true for those that are in the internet marketing field, for telecommuting is often that manner of how workers converse in the first place with both each other and their clients. If this is the case, and you really have no desire to learn about all five of your coworker’s children’s life problems and back stories, a good approach would be sending them a proposal of somehow coming to an agreement as to a strategy that can be implemented from separate locations. In fact, start thinking of assembling your team of coworker collective efforts as a network that spins out as a web, reaching into each of the separate aspects of your job as a whole. Assess what yourself and the rest of your coworkers excel at in terms of skills and abilities and delegate responsibilities accordingly for best results.
