Are you a small business owner that would love a bit of extra cash in your back pocket? What if you could save on some unnecessary costs in the office, and have that bit of extra money to put into spending time with what is most important… your family.
Here are my top 5 tips to help you on your way.
A paperless office is a great place to start with reducing costs. Have you ever actually calculated how much printing, ink and maintenance on printing systems costs your business every year? You will be truly blown away when you do. A business with an average of 8 employees will save $10,000 per year on paper transactions when adopting a paperless office.
Review your business software
I remember the days when software packages could only be purchased as a user licence agreement. When your licence ran out you were left with an old version. Remember seeing those people that were still running Windows ‘99 when it was 2013? Software as a Service (Saas) is the most cost effective way for small businesses to keep their office software on the most recent version, while only paying a monthly fee per staff user. Saas provides massive savings for small businesses and certainly removes the need to outlay large costs for software and servers.
Get into digital marketing
If you haven’t yet jumped on the digital marketing bandwagon, you are missing the potential of fast-paced, high-result, low-cost marketing. Start writing a blog and share with social media channels, try online advertising with Facebook and Linkedin. Once you understand where your perfect customer spends their social media time you can start targeting them with your business message. Our team are experts at digital marketing and we can build the perfect strategy for you.
Outsource business processes
Outsourcing work to an offshore location is no longer the risky undertaking it once was – not if you know what you are doing. The industry has changed immensely, and for the better. Traditionally viewed as the sole domain of multinationals with large offshore call centres, outsourcing has evolved to become a more fluid industry that is far more responsive to the diverse needs of clients and their customers. Beepo has been at the forefront of this change. Being leaders in the industry they have shifted perception of offshore processes and proven themselves as a reputable BPO (Business Process Offshorer).
Review your business phone/internet account
How long has it been since you have sat down with a professional to do a full account review? You could have mobile services on old plans that are costing money and not being used. Your internet pricing plan may be out of date. Telecommunications offerings change rapidly and prices are constantly reduced (or more perks are thrown in) to compete in the market. Our consultants can give you a much needed account review to help you find savings and better yet, there may be some new technology that you can adopt to help increase efficiencies in the office.
