Omar Zenhom is a founder of Webinar Ninja & The $100 MBA Show.
Our company has always been remote, and we’ve always worked from home.  With millions suddenly forced to do business from the same building they live in, we figured a little advice on effective home office setup might be helpful. The good news? It’s pretty easy, and not that expensive. If you’re used to working in a conventional office, you may not be going back to it for a long time — or ever.  That’s not because COVID-19 won’t be under control; it will be, sooner or later. But the benefits of remote work for employees and employers will remain. Remote work was always an excellent alternative for many businesses; coronavirus just forced many of us to give it a try. You might not want to go back! You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars for a professional, comfortable, productive home office space. Even if you have to buy a few furnishings and pieces of equipment, a modest investment can create a perfectly efficient space you might actually prefer to your good ol’ cubicle. Today, we’ll share our best tips for the perfect setup, with loads of specific recommendations (we hope you like IKEA). Remote work can be liberating, especially if you plan the space right.

YouTube: ignore it at your peril.  It’s the world’s second largest search engine, and its content often dominates the results of that other search engine. It’s a powerful marketing channel, as powerful as any blog or social media account. So how do you get started? Today, we’ll explain how to get your own YouTube channel up and running with minimal hassle. With step-by-step instructions and loads of online resources, you can claim your space on this increasingly vital platform. We’ll discuss how to manage realistic expectations, and how “standing out” on this very crowded platform is less important than finding your niche. With a reasonable investment of time and effort, you can reap major traffic from YouTube — even if you’ve never shot a video before.  Click Play!  #btn_1_2a93752f5900eebe99baf810059ed3f8 .text {font-size:22px;color:#ffffff;font-weight:normal;}#btn_1_2a93752f5900eebe99baf810059ed3f8 {padding:30px 40px;border-color:#cc0033;border-width:1px;-moz-border-radius:0px;-webkit-border-radius:0px;border-radius:0px;background:#cc0033;background:-webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%, #cc0033), color-stop(100%, #cc0033));background:-webkit-linear-gradient(top, #cc0033 0%, #cc0033 100%);background:-moz-linear-gradient(top, #cc0033 0%, #cc0033 100%);background:-ms-linear-gradient(top, #cc0033 0%, #cc0033 100%);background:-o-linear-gradient(top, #cc0033 0%, #cc0033 100%);background:linear-gradient(to bottom, #cc0033 0%, #cc0033 100%);filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#cc0033, endColorstr=#cc0033, GradientType=0);box-shadow:none;}#btn_1_2a93752f5900eebe99baf810059ed3f8 .gradient {-moz-border-radius:0px;-webkit-border-radius:0px;border-radius:0px;}#btn_1_2a93752f5900eebe99baf810059ed3f8 .shine {-moz-border-radius:0px;-webkit-border-radius:0px;border-radius:0px;}#btn_1_2a93752f5900eebe99baf810059ed3f8 .active {-moz-border-radius:0px;-webkit-border-radius:0px;border-radius:0px;}#btn_1_2a93752f5900eebe99baf810059ed3f8 .hover {-moz-border-radius:0px;-webkit-border-radius:0px;border-radius:0px;}SUBSCRIBE ON ITUNES Stitcher | SoundCloud | Podcast Feed | How To Subscribe Give us a Rating & Review Today's Sponsors WebinarNinja Looking for an easy, intuitive webinar platform that gets out of your way?

Standing out as a writer is tough.  Fortunately, you don’t necessarily have to shoot for the New York Times’ best-seller list. You just have to find your audience, and grow it. But for today’s authors, that begs the question: does Amazon help with that, or hurt? Or both? It’s Q&A Wednesday, and one of our listeners is a fiction author who’s not sure whether to even build their own website, since Amazon…y’know, exists. After all, most books are sold on Amazon, right? Is it worth the time and effort to build a site that just forwards people to The Everything Store anyway? Spoiler alert, budding authors: do not rely on Amazon. We get into the details on today’s episode. We’ll discuss why Amazon is helpful for authors, and the price you pay in return. We’ll explain how important your own website really is, and what you lose by not having one.  We’ll also explain why even if you are selling books on Amazon, your own separate corner of the Internet is still a must.. Plus, we’ll discuss how the difference between physical books and e-books factors into the overall equation. Amazon is a useful resource for writers and entrepreneurs of all kinds, but that doesn’t mean you should only market and sell there. Find out why, plus learn where to get some affordable help in setting up your own website.

No matter what you’re selling — product or service, physical or digital — a great video can be a marketing game-changer. Videos are an efficient way to get attention, get your message across, and nurture leads faster. As content goes, video is almost as important as the written word these days, and will almost certainly keep trending up. And by the way: it’s ok if you’ve never made a demo video before. Today, we’ll explain how to craft short, effective, professional demo videos for your product. We’ll go through each step in the process, and take the intimidation factor out of the equation for anyone with something to sell. We promise it’s easier than you think! We’ll explain how to plan and execute your video with conversions in mind, and of course we’ll offer recommendations for hardware and software that makes it all a snap. A good short video can be far-reaching and seriously impactful. Take the time to produce one or two, and you just might make it an integral part of your overall marketing strategy.
