Remote working online
After many years working with online assets, and remotely, the absolute best part is collaborating with so many talented and determined people around the world.
There’s no greater sharpener for focus, when you can only be judged by your work, communications, and results.
The competitive advantage of working with online talent gives you access to expertise from anywhere, at almost any time.
Focused on the quality of our work in; communications, design, development, systems, sales, publishing, and media production — everyone knows that the results can be shared, for all the world to see.
Qualified by online portfolios, partner accreditations, and reviews — remote workers are paid only by demonstrating, and achieving, extraordinary results.
We can now use technology to create more value, with measurable and meaningful engagement, for your stories and audience — all with a team connected online by chat, email, and project apps.
Feedback is the currency of improvement, and reliability the benchmark for success. It goes both ways now, too!
Recruiting an online remote team comes with high expectations — from brands for the results, and professionals seeking projects they can give their best attention to, and be proud to showcase.
Then, there’s all the security and data protection considerations — for which only technology can both cause or solve — and experience is needed to own the responsibilities.
This is what I do, know, and have worked with my entire career.
These are the problems I solve, so people and brands can achieve every success that new economies, and our online world, enable.
The real world
We’re all real people, too. We can travel, and organise gatherings. To share stories, and invest in each other’s enrichment of the journey.
Working with remote teams doesn’t mean we can’t meet in person. Although, travel is a luxury, it is an option for projects that justify it.
The next best alternative being the wonders of voice and video calls.
The best ways to communicate, and build a remote team, are the ones that work for you.
How can I help?
My content is offered for free — but, my time is finite, so let’s use both our time wisely.
If I can point you in the right direction, I’m happy to do that, and hear how you get on — so, feel free to ask.
My curiosity is not entirely altruistic. Much of what you will find here was inspired by challenges, questions, and case studies — in working out what to do, researching how to do it, and testing so many options along the way.
I need your unique challenges, and experiences, to understand the true source of problems — then find and test for the best solutions.
The best isn’t always the most well-known, popular, or first thing you think of, either. I look past the marketing, through to the longer-term consequences of each option.
If it’s an interesting question, I may also publish something here. To share our discoveries with others, searching for experience to learn from, and inspiration to build their capabilities upon.
Everyone has to make a living, but businesses require results and certainty — to enable a good living for many more.
Some people charge for time, or a subscription for an ongoing service availability. I work for fixed-price results, a share of performance, or a combination, based on the opportunity for all.
I can also recruit a team of experts, all with 10 to 20+ years experience.
Before undertaking any project or engagement, I need to understand what you’re looking for, what you’re expecting, and if we can make it happen — measurably — to be certain our work pays for itself.
We work for market cost, plus a fair percentage of results, when appropriate. This is our investment and commitment to working with mutually beneficial partnerships — and those ready to invest in the necessary resources, for outcomes to exceed expectations.
By putting your audience first, the rest becomes apparent in the process — serving and satisfying those that need, and will enjoy, our collective creations.
We can’t do everything for everyone. So, let’s be sure in securing each other’s attention, for what we can do, in a symbiotic collaboration.
Let me know the targets — then, we’ll work out how to get there.
Research and recommendations
If it’s online, or on a computing device of some kind — I can help narrow down your options, give you ideas, and justify recommendations.
I will only offer advice; without prejudice to any commission, independent of any single provider, and including, where available, mature and proven open-source platforms — for the ethics, privacy, security, and long-term cost efficiency they can offer for scaling.
Digital decisions are often a commitment you’ll live with for a very long time — and want to save yourself from continual reinvention, or the limbo of time-consuming, expensive, and hazardous later migrations.
The goal is always to work with systems that are designed with your needs and affordability in mind, first.
Then, equally, that have sustainable business-models of their own — to evolve with you, and the inevitable ongoing changes that all technologies will have from their evolving dependencies.
I use the term work for this page — but much of what I do is in identifying and making uncreative work redundant.
I do this by studying the objectives, and finding ways to eliminate the robotic, repetitive, mindless, and unnecessary reinventions from manual effort.
Some people can find this a little intimidating at first, if they rely on routine work, for minimal challenge, in retaining a regular income — but, more-often, the freedom from monotony enables a far more enjoyable experience for all.
People don’t buy products and services, they buy an experience, and reliance. Make that the best possible, and everything else gets easier.
When we can continually find and eliminate unnecessary work, then the most interesting and fruitful of possibilities become achievable.
There will never be a shortage of new challenges to add efficiency and value to creations, either. So, no danger of boredom. My job is in creating predictable pipelines of opportunity, and income, for you to grow confidently, and with due credit.
Everyone enjoys their roles more when they can connect with, and benefit from, the successes they create.
Work is an omni-purpose term. Yet, often the most satisfying definition of work is in creating, connecting people, sharing knowledge, and generating opportunity. This we tend to describe as a good living — and should aspire to it as-much for ourselves, and those relying on us.
The ultimate aim in all my research is to help people make choices that minimise the routine and laborious — enabling the imaginative and human aspects of making what we do a proud part of who we are. So, everyone can enjoy more time offline, too.
I love research challenges. This is my favourite kind of work.
Finding just the right thing, or way, to achieve something can enable so much more — when the things you have to work with also have an empathy and passion for making your work enjoyable.
The world has so many great things to offer now. Let’s make them a part of everything you can offer much more with, too.
If you need me to get something done for you, let’s first see:
- If it is achievable
- What results you would consider a success
- How you want to get there
I can recommend managed-services, or self-managed utilities.
I can introduce experienced specialists for almost all digital, creative, and business needs — subcontracted, or with direct employment relationship, as preferred.
Information is my primary expertise and career experience, so we can chat with data protection registered confidence.
If it’s my personal and professional service you require — we can talk more about availability, timescale, and getting results.
What we do is often a multifaceted team effort, with a broad range of skills and experience required, from your team, and mine.
My team of trusted experts, from many years of working on various projects, can do more than any one of us alone.
Your team will want to know how to get the most from us.
I’m sure you’ll find it refreshing, getting to know what our good team, of veterans in online technologies, can add to your capabilities.
The only way to know is to ask. Search engines can find you everything online. I offer the parts that connect that to the real world.
