As referred to in the article below, small business owners wear many hats as they work to do everything that needs to be done within their business. It really isn't necessary.
There are so many ways to either give the hat to someone else (outsourcing) or to reduce the amount of time taken when wearing that hat (automation). Personally we use the following tools:
- Xero - less time wearing my finance director hat.
- Infusionsoft - reducing my own marketing director hat time.
- CANDDi - helps when I'm wearing my sales director hat.
- Numbers Nerds - do my payroll so I don't need to worry about so much with my HR Manager hat on.
Of course, we can help you spend less time wearing your marketing director hat. Give us a call if you would like to talk more. 020 8634 5911.
Nick Leech, digital director at 123-reg, added: “UK micro and small business owners are huge multi-taskers – managing all of the company’s tasks from completing the work, generating new sales and managing accounts and pay roll. “UK SMBs have already demonstrated they’re digitally savvy by embracing websites and social media in their millions. “Now, they need to think about how they can save time by embracing technology further so they can focus on the tasks that add the most value to their bottom line. “By embracing additional tools, they will be able to reduce time spent on unproductive admin tasks and focus on the activities that really drive business growth, such as producing excellent work or networking for new leads.”
