Anybody who had to transition to online selling specifically due to covid and wfh?

What's your experience been like? Is it harder or is it easier? Does the lack of travel make it more comfortable or less exciting?

No commute, saved a lot of time and money, can get on with my hobbies whenever I finish my work + my dog is loving it. I also love the random call from my team with the odd joke/meme (but would prefer to keep this level of contact vs 10 hours a day together). yourself?

I can speak more from a non-sales since I have never sold offline, I absolutely love wfh, the comfort and the freedom is amazing, every time there is news about some huge company continuing wfh even after covid, I do little happy dance in my head :p

My previous role was pure inside sales - then moved to my current company and it was supposed to be fully outbound - managed to do 3 trips to the US and on my way back from the 3rd Covid hit - so we had to pivot and become inside. apart from opp generation I'll be honest its actually quite nice - I dont think we will ever go back to full outside sales - it will be a healthy mixย ย

I see ALOT of people who are working f2f sales trying to join our team since our sales is all online and we all wfh. So yea a lot has happened but I think it boils down to industries that are capable of continuing to support this. You can't ask logistics to wfh or shipping for example.

I used to travel 2-3 weeks out of every month and that shut down immediately last March. Still haven't been on a work trip since then, but hoping to start again this summer.ย 
I was working remotely before COVID, so the WFH hasn't been much of an adjustment. The lack of travel and being home ALL THE TIME has been the biggest adjustment, and I miss getting out on the road.ย

If cost and job weren't an issue, where would you work full remote?

Has anyone stopped to consider that COVID was formulated and dispersed by a bunch of genetic engineers who just wanted WFH to take off?

Did somebody say WFH?
