Are lockdown or trade restrictions leaving you a little lost as to how you can perform your job to the best of your ability? We’re here with some quick tips to help you!


The current business climate is difficult for everyone, with uncertainty surrounding every industry and customers from all walks of life. However, if you are lucky enough to be working from home as a sales rep, you may be wondering how exactly you can maximise your output during this time. This is normal, as this way of working is a big change for everyone and could yet be the future! So it’s best to put good practices in place now, so you can perform to the best of your ability.

To help you get to grips with this way of working, we at Skynamo have come up with some pointers as to how you can continue to work from home, with the help of our field sales app.


Stay Organised

As with any task you are set, or goal you are trying to reach, remaining organised is essential to making sure you’re not overwhelmed. This is especially important in sales, where you can have many calls and pitches to make in a day. Staying on top of them can prove to be a tall order!

Skynamo, the mobile field sales application, can keep all of your valuable information in one place so they’re easily accessible whenever you need them.

Being able to store your industry or prospect research digitally allows you to keep calm and composed when performing a sales pitch, as you have full and easy access to all the information you need, without worrying about forgetting to touch on something important.


Keep a positive mindset

In sales, it is imperative that you apply a positive mindset to all aspects of work, which becomes much easier when using our field sales software. This can be done by setting achievable goals that will undoubtedly raise morale, especially during times like these. Use Skynamo’s ability to gather information effectively ‒ plotting out what targets you would like to hit and by when – and give yourself something to work towards during lockdown.

Skynamo stores a plethora of information, giving you the opportunity to choose which information is most relevant to you.



One of the most important aspects of working from home is continuing to collaborate with your co-workers and management. It can be very easy to lose contact with people you would normally have spoken to every day. Be sure to use video calling services such as Zoom to keep in touch with your co-workers to discuss any deals you have on the horizon, any news or information that could be relevant to them or just for a general catch-up.

This helps keep you in the loop when it comes to updates, and shows your willingness to pitch in for the greater good during the COVID-19 pandemic.
