By Business Desk

Wednesday, May16, 2018.

The aim of every business owner is to have the most productive and efficient working during their workweek. If you want to make your business work more efficiently this year. There are a few things you can look at doing.

Less effort for sales

If you want to make your sales department more efficient, you can start off by installing a CRM system and training your team on how to use it. The whole idea behind a customer relationship management system is that it allows you to compile all of your customer data in one place, you can make contact, write notes and even arrange meetings with clients. It is a way of bringing all of the elements or sales into one place and can make a massive difference to the effectiveness of your working.

Save more money

The main aim for every single business out there is to make money, and in order to make the most profit you can from your business you need to learn how to save money effectively. Get some of your business funds and save them in a high interest savings account. This will allow the money to sit and accumulate a good value of interest over a few months, and will enable you to make more money than you put into the account originally. If you can place your money in an account like this and keep tipping it up, you will be making a large value with interest which can be used later on to grow and develop your business.

Relax with emails

There was a time a few years ago when emailing was the primary form of communication and we would spend our days on the office obsessing over emails and refreshing our inboxes every few minutes. However, e-mail is not the be all and end all of your business. There are much more productive ways to spend your day during work and you can set your emails to notify you when they come through. Leave your email alone and carry on with the rest of your work, it will waste less of your time.

Outsource or automate

If you want to make your business more efficient and make life easier for your workers you can look into a Managed Services Provider to provide you with more automation for your working days. You can also think about what departments of the business you can outsource and whether you are able to hire a third party to complete some of your business tasks. One of the most popular parts of the business to outsource is marketing, and a marketing agency will be able to complete great quality work for you and save you needing to hire and train your own employees for the job.

Online presence

It is crucial these days that you take the time to make sure that you are present online. Your online presence can be made much more efficient with the creation of social media accounts, the upkeep of your website and content, and the presence of an SEO plan. Search engine optimisation is a part of marketing which is all about increasing your ranking on search engine results and making sure that you are visible to the right people online. This is a complex job but it can be essential for your success as a business online and will make your business much more efficient overall.

Cut down your mailing lists

There is no point wasting your time trying to contact customers who don’t care about your brand. Take some time this week to go through your mailing lists and contacts and take out inactive users from your site. Get rid of the people who never open your emails, which don’t shop with you and who don’t engage with you when you try to call them. It is incredibly important to make sure that you do this because it is wasting your time and stopping you from being able to find new leads.

Better broadband

When you are at home there is nothing more annoying than being in the middle of watching something on Netflix when it starts to buffer. In the workplace, you need to ensure that you never come across connectivity issues like this because if you do, it can slow down the production of your whole workplace and it can cost you precious time in contacting your customers. Make sure that you have enough servers to support your workers and be sure that you update the system whenever you can for productive working.

Let staff make their own decisions

One of the things which can slow your staff down the most during the working week is when they come to ask you about every little problem. If you want to lived your employees coming to you every time they have a tiny question, you need to install them with a sense of confidence in their abilities. Let the, make their own mistakes on the job and give them the feeling of independence to try out new things and solve issues themselves. It will allow them to learn in a proactive environment and it mean that they aren’t stopping work every two minutes to ask a question from you.

Quit meetings

Meetings are one of the those things in the workplace which you either love or your hate, but in general, you don’t need meetings unless they are for a full team or for a specific project. Get rid of weekly meetings and stop booking random meeting during the week which take people away from their work. It is annoying for everyone involved and it slows down your production by a huge amount.

Learn how to say no

Saying no to someone is something we have to train ourselves to do if we want to succeed and grow on our own terms in life. If you can learn how to turn down meetings or useless projects you will soon be able to grow and develop better as a business.
