Business Etiquette Mistake #19: Not Preparing Properly

Wherever you take your calls, you’ll want to appear professional and organized.

More and more people are working from home.

Last year, 43 percent of employed Americans said they spent at least some time working remotely.

If you’re building your own e-commerce business, chances are you’ll be taking business calls at  home.

And, wherever you take your calls, you’ll want to appear professional and organized.

So, before you get on the phone, make sure you’re somewhere quiet.

Shut the door and make sure you won’t be disturbed by your partner, children, housemates, dog, etc.

And, if you’re having a video call, make sure you’re dressed appropriately.

Also, check the area of the room that’s in camera shot. Remove any inappropriate or overly personal items, and make sure the area is clean and tidy.

You really don’t want your new supplier to see your messy bedroom.
