You’ve heard the saying that time is money, and that’s especially true with a small business. Finding ways to eliminate items on your daily to-do list will increase your company’s efficiency and give you more opportunities to focus on your customers. Here are a few areas where digital solutions can help you be more efficient.
Technology has made it easier than ever to communicate with all your team members at one time, regardless of their location. Set up a digital meeting and email the invitation to your employees. You can show a presentation or a document to everyone at once and hear all the comments and questions in one meeting. There are several digital meeting websites to choose from; some are free to use.
Social Media Marketing
Social media posts and pages are an essential part of marketing in today’s marketplace. However, it is time-consuming to do on your own and expensive to hire a staff member to do it for you. Thankfully, there are social media management products available to automate the process. They will coordinate posts for several social media platforms and schedule posts and tweets to publish on a specific day and time. You also get the benefit of real-time user analytics to show you what content is popular with your customers.
Just a decade ago, project teams would meet in person or send multiple emails to give progress updates, share information and discuss staffing needs. These meetings led to travel expenses and overloaded email inboxes. Now, technology can do this work for you with software and online platform options that create a digital space everyone on the team can access. Each person can track the tasks, workflow progress, deadlines and any documents changes in real-time.
Using technology to handle your team meetings, social media marketing and project management tasks can free up time so you can focus on growing your business.
