How to Bring Your SMB to the ‘Future’ in 2022 B

Quick Guide

    Can you believe that Y2K was almost 22 years ago? 

    Us neither! And if that makes you feel old, then how about the fact that on January 1st, we’ll officially be living in the future?! 

    If you’re also struggling to work out where the time went, then you’re in good company. 

    You’re in even better company if you understand that it’s time for your business to be brought into the future too…but aren’t quite sure how to do it. 

    We’re here to help! 

    Back to the Future with Your Business 

    Bringing your biz into the future doesn’t have to be a terrifying ordeal; all you need are a few small, quick and easy upgrades! Here’s what we recommend: 

    Going Digital

    Not only can’t you do everything yourself (even if it means you save money in the short-term, or ‘get it done properly’), but more than that: there just aren’t enough hours in the day at best; at worst – you’re going to burn out and collapse. 

    Enter: digital delegation. Sounds fancy? It’s really nothing special; you just delegate the tasks that can be delegated to a digital platform instead of a person. 

    You’re probably already practicing digital delegation if you order from UberEats, book a supermarket delivery or use a robot vacuum. So why can’t you apply the same rule to your business? 

    With all-in-one business management apps like Connecteam, you get a whole range of awesome business and employee management tools for a super low price, or even for free. You’ll get employee time management, scheduling automation and so much more, saving you time, headache and, of course, to-the-second accurate payroll, for a change! 

    If you want your business to be brought into the future, digital delegation is the quickest, easiest and most effective step you can take. 

    Think “Online”

    Think about your online presence. Do you have a website? Do you have social media profiles for your business? 

    If your answer is ‘not really’, then guess what…that’s the next thing on your ‘to do’ list! 

    Customers nowadays like to see a ‘brand’ (as in, your business) online before choosing to buy something. They like to see the sort of ‘vibe’ you have, as well as check out if you’re a legitimate business. 

    Plus, since the buying habits of customers have changed so much, you might discover new ways to sell your products and services: even though (for example) having a social profile won’t automatically get you more sales, you’re likely to build more brand loyalty if you post regularly, and post about topics your customers care about! These could be – 

    Stories behind your brand’s name

    The stories behind your products

    Happy customer reviews

    And so much more! 

    Put Everything in One Place

    What’s the easiest way for customers to spot a business that hasn’t moved to the 21st century? An inability to find information about it, or get quick answers. 

    Both of these small (but oh-so damaging) customer irritations can easily be fixed by – you guessed it – storing everything in one place. 

    Using an all-in-one app (like Connecteam) will allow you and your employees to have all of your knowledge at your fingertips, as well as be able to share, comment and send questions, information and more, at the click of a button! 

    That goes for anything and everything, be it employee schedules and shift-related notes; payroll details to your accountant, or even having a whole library full of documents for employees to remind themselves of small details, or other important information! 

    It’s time to move away from the pen and paper of yesteryear…go digital, with everything in one place.
