28 Jun Time-saving tips for start-ups
When you start your own business, it might feel like you need to be involved in every aspect of your business to make sure it runs smoothly, and it can be easy to spread yourself too thin. Here at Grosvenor House, we specialise in providing exceptional services tailored to start-ups like yours. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll share our top time-saving tips, so you can spend more time growing your business.
Master the Art of Prioritisation
When running a small business start-up, it’s important to learn how to prioritise and ensure all your employees are on the same page regarding business priorities too.
A good way to do this is to set SMART goals for your business. SMART goals are defined by the following characteristics;
For example, if you’re running a start-up wellness brand, a smart goal for your sales team could be to contact and convert ten leads a week.
Another way to prioritise is to review all tasks by the potential outcome, prioritising tasks with the lowest output and the highest potential impact are done first.
For example, sales teams should first approach warm leads and decision-makers with a verified budget to have the best chance of converting.
Implement processes, and stick to them
Standardising your way of working not only makes it easy to train new staff when it comes to growing your business but can also reduce the risk of mistakes by offering guidelines on how to complete a task. Standardised processes make tasks more efficient and also help you to plan your time more effectively.
Focus on productivity
To run a successful start-up, it’s important to maximise productivity as much as you possibly can. For example, tasks such as managing your own mail or business calls can easily start eating into the time it takes for you to run your business and become a distraction.
At Grosvenor House, our mail forwarding package not only offers a registered business address, so that you can keep your personal life and business separate, but we’ll also handle your mail and post forwarding for you. Our confidential open and scan service also allows you to receive any urgent mail via email without any added hassle.
Our premium business package also includes call handling, meaning we’ll manage your calls for you too, giving you extra time to invest in your business.
Prioritise staff development
Any good start-up will invest in its staff. Training and investing in your staff can make them feel empowered and trusted. It’ll also help them to stick to company processes and procedures if they understand the reasons behind them. Training your staff allows them to grow with your business and offer new perspectives based on what they’ve learned.
