One of the biggest challenges with having an online business is that we are ONLINE much of the time. This means that when we sit down to work, we are being distracted by all sorts of bells, whistles, pings, notifications, etc.

One thing that I have found that helps so much is to turn on (or off) a few controls in Facebook.

On your iPhone:

  • open up the Messenger app

  • choose "notifications"

  • choose "mute"

  • select the duration

On your desktop

  • go to the globe icon on the upper right corner of your screen

  • choose "mute"

  • select duration

Set up auto-replies from your business page

  • go to your Facebook business page

  • go to "settings"

  • go to "messaging"

  • select "instant reply"

  • compose an automated message

What are some of your favorite ways to eliminate distractions? Let me know in the comments. I'm always looking for ways to be more productive!
