Your Online Website Business drain your time, so the need to become more time effective is... Get some how to advice on work at home time management...

Time for work at home entrepreneurs is their single most valuable asset. Nothing can replace it. And no matter how rich or poor you are, or how many things you have on your "to-do" list, you still just get twenty-four hours each day.   The thing about those twenty-four hours per day is that you can't spend all of them working. You have to sleep some of them. You have to take time to eat, and wash. You need time to have fun, spend time with your family and friends. You need time to enjoy your life, after all, that's why you work, right? To make the money to buy and do the things you love.   So, your work time is limited, which means that you must make the very most of the time when you work at home with your online website business. You can't go wasting time on unimportant details, or on tasks that others can do.   When you shave a few minutes here and there, you'll start to make more efficient use of your working hours. Here are a few suggestions... 

Email account efficiency: Most business people have more than one email accounts. One account for this and another account for that. Checking each and every email more than once a day can be a time consuming task. Some people only use one account for all their emails, this is a mistake. Having to filter out all the email that don't need to be read will zap your time from improving your online website business. 

So this is what you do...   Over all, you need at less 4 email accounts for your online website business, which you can get for free from Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, and so on.  

The Website email account   This is where all your visitors/members to your website can contact you. This account should come with your website hosting and should look something like this:   Your-name@your-domain.com   If you want you can redirect this address to a free email account like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or Hotmail. But bear in mind that it must only be for your visitors/members.  

Business partners email account   Set up a free email account that you ONLY give out to people who are either a Business partner, Joint venture, co-worker and/or colleague. This account should only be for networking with business people in your given niche and/or business field.  

Affiliate email account   Set up a free email account that you ONLY use for your affiliate programs and affiliate sign ups for your online website business.  

The newsletter email account   When signing up to a newsletter ON YOUR NICHE OR BUSINESS FIELD use this account. Although, a newsletter is for selling new products and services, some do come with tips and advice which can be used for your niche. For example, if you have a blog that offers news about xxxxx, by flicking through this email account you can keep up-to-date with what is being sold, what's new, and you may even find something that can help you improve your business. This way you don't miss anything, thus, never does your visitors/members.  

Outsourcing email account   If you outsource your business a lot, it's helpful to have an account just for incoming and out going updates, but you can use the "Business partners email account" for this.   Now, you don't need to view all the above email account everyday, but if you do you'll find the information you're looking for much quicker.  Set up a time tables to help you prioritize your work day: A scheduled work day is an efficient work day. You'll get more done in less time if you know in advance, and can see at a glance, what task is next on your list. Use visual aids. A time table is a helpful visual aid. It can help you allot your time efficiently and productively!  

When you make your work day schedule, you need to be certain that the tasks that you schedule for your online website business are the ones that will in fact make your business grow and thrive. Don't waste your time, effort and energy on tasks that can be done by others. Take time to investigate outsourcing. You can add hours to your day each and every day when you outsource the mundane business tasks to others.   You can outsource such tasks as bookkeeping and accounting, article/E-book writing and submission, travel and event planning and ad writing. Others can do these tasks better and more efficiently than you can and your time is better spent on growing your business, making those contacts and closing those deals!  

Shave time off the counter-productive activities: Like I said, your friends and families do required some of your time but you can also waste a whole ton of time on such unproductive activities as watching TV. You'll be really surprised at how much of your day that you waste if you keep a record of your time expenditures over the course of several days time.   Now don't misunderstand me. We all need down time. We all must relax our minds as well as our bodies. We can't be all business all the time but we can limit our unproductive or counterproductive activities.   Time is precious and time is limited. You need to make the very best use of every minute of every day that you possibly can to get the most of your online website business.
