Time is money! Don’t get stuck spinning your wheels on things that can be done for you while you work or sleep.
Times are changing. Constantly. One great thing that change has brought is automation. No, we can’t build robots to do all of our office work, but we can hire some virtual robots and humans to do some of it. Here are a couple of ways to do this:
Auto Responders When people sign up to get email updates from your business, you can use an auto responder to make sure they don’t fall through the cracks. An auto responder allows you to enter a series of newsletters or informational snippets and delivers them via email in the order and schedule you choose. So after a bridal trade show, when you have tons of new contacts, enter the email addresses and the auto responder will take it from there. A good one to check out is aweber.com.
Delegation What is the task that you don’t do well? Hate writing email blasts? Hate entering data? Or designing brochures? Delegate it to someone who does like the job and does it well. It will get done faster and turn out better than if you forced yourself to do it. Go to elance.com to see what I’m talking about.
Next time you’re sitting at your desk forcing yourself to get that dreaded task done, start thinking creatively. Look to the virtual world to get more done.
