Working from home vs. the office

I can't think of too many reasons we need to "go in."

I was just curious to see where other PPC people were getting their work done.

I'm working on getting my boss to allow me a little more freedom to work from home, so here are the reasons I've come up with so far:

no 60 mile commute...instead, I end up working a little longer with that extra time. I haven't used a pen, printer, fax, or hard copy of anything in...months. I'm the only person in the marketing department, and I report directly to the CMO...and it seems like most in-person conversations with anyone at the office aren't work-related :)

I realized that I might be in a bit of a different situation than most, having only one person in the entire company that knows what I do...which makes it easy to disappear...but as long as the campaigns are rockin'........right?

It would also allow you to take on other clients, "as long as the campaigns are rockin". :)

Seriously though, if your boss has someone who has proven their worth, you frame it that you could be even more productive working from home. That would make it easier to justify. And then produce. If you increase productivity, then it was a good idea. If your productivity decreases, then your boss might not think to highly of you.

You have very legitimite pros and very few cons seeing as you only report to the person making the decision. He would have one less person to supervise if you weren't there also.
