6 Months of Working Remotely Taught Me a Thing or Ten

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Peter Anglea writes up his key takeaways after six months on the job with a new front-end position. His points ring true to me as a remote worker and the funny thing is that each one of the suggestions is actually applicable to anyone in almost any front-end job, whether it happens to be in-house or remote.

The full post is worth reading, though the list breaks down to:

Be as available as possible
Communicate clearly
Go out of your way to be human
Offer praise and positive sentiments early and often
Create a comfortable space conducive to productivity
Put your pants on
Go outside
Turn on your camera
Work on more than one project at a time
Take advantage of the perks… and be responsible

One item I would add to the list is to manage up in day-to-day conversations. In other words, give frequent and regular updates with examples of progress so that your client/boss/whomever has no doubt that you are being productive from afar. I suppose that goes along with “communicate clearly” but takes it one step further.
