Workers need to have a specific duties set and sequences of work that need to be maintained once an assignment is handed to them.

Systemizing these procedures through workflow management is the best way to extract maximum work from the resources available at any given time.

If something was to go wrong having your workflow laid out can give you quicker insight into what stage the issue occurred.

Today it’s hard to imagine a business that hasn’t already invested in having a website.

With many companies competing against each other it’s become a constant struggle t0 increase their company visibility.

The internet opens up many possibilities to small business and can increase the flow of work throughout its infrastructure. A website is a tool that helps to reach out to a broader audience and establish a larger customer base in a quick as well as cost effective manner. Marketing through the internet is a more cost effective and efficient way of reaching your targeted audience.

Referrals

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

If you are the owner of your own business you should always be focused on expansion. Referrals are a great way to pick up new business when you feel the well is running a little low. Using current clients or client employees are a good source for obtaining referrals. Often word of mouth is more beneficial to both parties due to the fact that credibility on either end is already established from the referrer. The advantage would be that you and the referred client would have an understanding of each other to smooth out the process.  However you must first converse with the client over potential referrals and the referral fees that would be involved. It’s also important to know when a client is very dependent on your time because they might be reluctant to recommend you. Don’t forget when you are doing work for a client that seems difficult or not profitable you are also gaining a reputation that could possibly bring you future business. It’s best to always establish a higher standard of professionalism towards clients in hopes that one day your business may continue to grow through them.

In the Professional Service Industry it’s highly important that your flagship company stands out amongst the sea of its competitors. With many people logging onto the internet today it’s difficult to even find one company that hasn’t expanded its branches towards the highly competitive internet. When reaching clients on the web many new components come into play, such as the appearance of the website, which directly represents the image of your company. The website will also establish your company’s credibility to potential clients, so by providing beneficial testimonials and samples of your previous work on the site, you would be instilling a sense of confidence in the client. It would also be highly recommended that you clearly define what you do and briefly explain why a client should/would use your services. The most common mistake companies make though is launching poorly planned websites on budgets much smaller than what is recommended for them. When competing for business over the internet you need to show evidence that you are a successful company with experience in the area of your expertise and industry. So when companies make a rushed website which is aesthetically unpleasant to the client, it defers business away by giving off an illegitimate image of your company. The saying “you get what you pay for” always remains true, it’s better to go a little over budget in order to get something that will be able to make you money back instead of saving a little up front and having no business at all.
