I’m pretty sure parents would want to buy one for their kids, then tell them to… oh, you know… leave it out so they could “keep an eye on”  it while they’re at school. Or sleeping. Or sent out to rake leaves…

Extend Your Office Hours and Work Less

Less is more, right? How about this… you increase your availability to customers by eliminating one task from your daily office routine… impossible? No way! You can do this, and it’s really easy.

See, what I’m talking about is your customers should be able to contact you any time they feel like it.  If it is 10:30pm on Sunday night and they want to find out if the jumbo watermelon crusher is available in various shades of blue, then by heck they should be able to do just that!

But if you hire somebody specifically to man the phone 24 hours a day, that will cost you a fortune, while if you try to do it yourself, you’ll burn out and waste valuable time that should be being spent on more productive activities.

If there is anyone in your office now, including yourself, who spends a significant portion of their workday on the phone, you should seriously consider modifying their workload so that they spend time on work that makes more money for your business.

It is a waste of resources for anyone in your company to spend more than one hour per day on communications (unless you’re a communications company, then you get a free pass!). These days it is completely unnecessary to waste so much of your valuable time on “busy work”.

What you need is a dedicated call centre to handle all the calls your company receives. One such company which has rapidly become a leader in this field is alldayPA, founded by super star entrepreneur Reuben Singh. They make it possible for your business to be “always open”, while in fact you personally can be tucked up in bed catching forty winks.

There are several good reasons why you should consider this:

More freedom for you and your staff

Get back more of your personal time

70% of callers do not leave a message if they reach voice mail

59% of callers won’t return if they’re not satisfied with your customer service

You can focus entirely on your core business activities

Now, outsourcing your telephony is a good start, but you should also consider outsourcing many other tasks such as email processing, social media, and many other tasks that are taking time away from core business activities. These are all extraneous tasks that cost you too much in lost productivity, but are still important in the sense that they help you attract and retain customers.

Good services understand everything about your business, and eliminate the need for you to do it yourself.  Outsourcing is not just for big business any more. All businesses should take advantage of the benefits outsourcing can provide.

The important thing is to make sure that the services you select are trustworthy and have the capability and professionalism you require.  You don’t want to go out and find just anyone providing these kinds of services. You need to choose a company that is well established, has motivated staff that genuinely care about customer service, and provides flexibility to allow you to scale your services in line with your needs.

The Ultimate Guide to Renting the Right Office Space

For many small and medium-sized business owners, the need to move from a cramped home office to a leased space is a sure sign that they’re moving forward and flourishing into something more than just a small outfit. Whether it is the hiring of new employees or the growing roster of clients or investors, the expansion of a small company will bring the need for the purchase or rental of an efficient, functional and productive working environment.

As the need for rented office space dramatically increases, so too does the amount of options that are available, so how can you be sure that you’re getting a good deal?

Let’s take a look at just three of the important points that should be taken into consideration when it comes to renting appropriate office space for your business needs.

Think Modestly
Small business owners don’t have a clear vision of what their company will look like in five years time, and their real estate choices should reflect that. When the time comes to wave good-bye to your home office and rent a Furnished office in Bracknell on 329bracknell.com, it’s always best to think modestly. Yes, it might be tempting to ‘think big’ and want a huge office space that screams modernity and extravagance, but now is really not the best time to think this way.

When choosing an appropriate office space to rent, it’s a good idea to choose a landlord or rental company that offers many different kinds and sizes of spaces so that the growing needs of your business can be properly catered for.

Consider Clustering
In some cases, there are many advantages to be obtained from setting up shop near businesses that are very similar, if not identical, to your own. A phenomenon known as ‘clustering,’ many businesses are now seeing the numerous benefits that can be achieved from collaborations and side-by-side competition.

Given the said benefits of clustering, there are a number of obvious downsides to it. When it comes to renting a fully furnished office space for your business needs, you have to decide whether clustering would be helpful or hurtful to the success of your business.

Do your Homework
As with most important business decisions, carrying out the necessary research is a fundamental part of making the right choice when finding an office space. Before signing any lease, you must take the time to find out who is responsible for the internal and external maintenance and repair of the building. You must also ensure that the property has the right classification for your business and that it meets all fire, and health and safety regulations.

Make a shortlist of the options that are available to you and consider the costs that are involved with each option and what provisions are provided for that price. Doing your homework and putting in a little effort in at the beginning could end up saving you a lot of money and hardship in the long run.

Choosing the right office space for your business could prove to be a deciding factor in its overall success, which is one of the many reasons why this is a decision that should not be made hastily.

I think all of us who are baseball fans were Yankees fans this past year. Derek Jeter’s last game in front of his home crowd was emotional, magical, and absolutley perfect. A perfect ending to a perfect career.

Derek Jeter reminds us all that respect is earned. It’s not demanded with cockiness, loudness, or arrogance. It’s earned by years of doing the right thing and a reputation for working hard.
