“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” – James Cash Penney, founder, JC Penney
FAST FACT: If there’s one thing we know about being small business owners, it’s that we are heavily focused on business growth.
In fact, business owners are so fixated on growing their business it’s often the number one Christmas Wish or New Year’s resolution!
Business growth is what keeps us up at night, it’s what all of our goals are centered around, it’s why we bring on new employees or try new strategies, and it’s definitely why we get up in the morning.
So how can you grow your business quickly and easily? By taking yourself out of it and replacing yourself with business automation.
Why should you have to do those repetitive and boring tasks if you don’t have to and a piece of software or an app could do it instead?
Business automation is genius!
Automation can easily streamline your processes without sacrificing on accuracy or quality – or customer service. In fact, there is so much business automation happening in every small business that you may be surprised just how great it can be for business growth!
1. Save on labour costs
Need I even say more? If you are looking to cut down on costs, but not cut down on quality, then automation can help. For example, where you might pay an employee to do a repetitive daily task that takes up so much of their time, you could likely automate it and have that employee working on something more pressing or a revenue-raising project.
2. Better management of tasks and projects
When you automate your systems and processes as much as possible, tasks are easier to manage because you don’t have to worry about so much. You don’t have to micromanage or even wonder if things have been done, you can just get on with growing your business.
3. Business growth: Boost operations efficiency
Your business and team will benefit from a big boost in productivity and efficiency. Just wait until you and your team start saving time on the small things and start working on those big visionary tasks you want to get done so badly!
4. Standardise processes and consistent results
You will start to see business growth and more consistent results in your business, especially when you automate your marketing and lead-generation activities. You’ll see better results from your team and also from yourself.
5. Able to handle larger volumes of work
Once as many tasks and processes as possible are automated, you’ll be able to take on a larger volume or work and clients because everything is systemised. Even the sales process can be automated. Imagine waking up to sales in your inbox and those clients starting their experience with you straight away because your processes are automated and those new clients don’t have to wait for you or your team to get back to them!
6. Business owners can focus on high-level activities
The best benefit of all – you get to work on your big vision and dreams because you have more time! You can focus on trying new strategies to build and grow your business too.
7. Give you reporting and better decision making based on the fact and analysis
When your team can access the accurate data they need to perform their jobs, efficiency naturally goes up. The best tasks for automation are those that are repetitive and boring for human workers.
