I thought I would put together a list of remote marketing jobs for everyone out there wanting to get away from their corporate or agency environments. I have worked from home for over four years now and would never go back to the corporate cubicle environment.
Here are a few tips I have learned that might help you if you are on the fence, searching for a new job, or currently working remotely.
Tips for working remotely
If you are a people person, working remotely might not be for you! (thankfully I’m not)
No cubicle distractions
On the plus side, when there are no people there are also no distractions. Nobody walking into your cubicle and a 5-minute chat turning into a 30-minute conversation.
You do have new distractions though, such as Facebook, Tweetdeck, etc. Learn some discipline. If you are one of those people that are constantly opening up a new tab and typing fa… then you know what I mean. I only visit social media sites in the evenings after my work is finished.
I also have the UnDistracted Chrome extension installed. This allows you to block out all the newsfeeds on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.
Make your home office work for you
Take advantage of your home office. I bought a standing desk from Fully, an awesome little company down in Portland Oregon. I live in Arizona and they shipped it to me and I assembled in less than an hour. It is motorized which allows me to stand during the morning and then lower back down in the late afternoon.
Find a routine
Find your routine! Some people work different hours when working remotely. For me, I get up in the morning around 7 am and usually drive down to Starbucks for my morning cup of coffee. It is only about a minute away from me. I start working at 8 am, eat lunch at my desk, and go until around 5 or 6 pm. And then some evenings I hop back on later in the night.
Don’t forget to excercise
Get your exercise. Most people working from home probably don’t get out as much and so it is very important to have a good exercise routine.
Eat healthy. Just because you are working from home doesn’t mean you should be snacking on Little Debbies all day long. Prepare healthy meals. In fact, I have found myself eating healthier because I am at home.
Save money on gas and vehicle repairs. This is one of the best perks about working from home. I probably only fill my car up with gas about once every month and a half. True story! Because of this, my car will probably last forever.
Self-employment taxes are no fun
Beware of self-employment taxes in the US! Depending upon your employer, working from home might put you into the self-employed category. If so it means your employer might not be taking out your social security and medicare for you and you will have to pay the 15.3%.
So be careful when looking for new jobs, as you could end up making less if you aren’t careful. It also means you might have to file quarterly federal taxes. I use a nifty little program from Intuit for estimating and paying my quarterly taxes. I do still have to file my quarterly state taxes separately though.
Careful if you’re a workaholic
If you’re a workaholic, be careful not to burn out. I learned this the hard way. It can be easy just to keep working and not take any breaks to enjoy life.

The term “growth hacking” was coined by Sean Ellis in 2010 and was initially intended for startups to define a high impact growth role.
If you haven’t ever read anything on GrowthHacker’s website well then I can’t help you. Besides having kick-ass reading materials and case studies they also have a great job section. While they don’t have a lot, the ones they do have are always high quality. They will usually always say remote in the description if they are remote jobs. See the example below.
