It can get chaotic trying to manage everything in your business. The overwhelmingness of it all ain’t no h*e! The worst part of it all is you don’t even get to an opportunity to GROW your business.
Don't think I don't understand because trust meeeeee, I do!
And then you have that deep feeling of regret because you rushed to transition from your 9 to 5 into entrepreneurship. That was a wild time for me because I was definitely losing my mind. At the time, I didn't have clients and I was doing everything manually. I definitely did not prepare for any kind of growth.
Don’t prepare for 100 clients/customers when you get 100 clients/customers.
Don’t prepare for 100 clients/customers when you get 100 clients/customers, do it before. Take time to set up the backend of your business. Once the backend of your business is prepared and ready to support your goals, you won't have to worry about future problems.
I know you've been hearing people talk about automation and that’s for good reason. Automation is using systems to automatically complete tasks or workflows in your business. If you want more time to do other things that will grow your business or even if you just want more time off, automate as much as you can.
Here are some parts of my businesses that I put on automation to focus my attention on the needs of my clients:
Scheduling emails/newsletters has been the best thing since sliced bread. I'm able to plan out my emails with upcoming events, new product releases, educational tools and launching new courses.
Plan out your email campaigns to coincide with your social media marketing.
Social Media Marketing
Scheduling social media posts has been around for almost 10 years. I used to schedule my social media post on Twitter and Facebook on the hour so that everyone would see what post. Now that social media has evolved you can schedule your social media post individually to engage differently with your target audience.
E-commerce stores can benefit greatly from drop shipping. Working with companies that make products in mass production is an inventory, time and energy saver. There are Pros and Cons with working with drop shipping companies but to start a product-based business with minimum startup cost and potentially generate a 6-figure income can be worth it!
Creating digital products helps your service-based business by cutting your workload down by 35%. Imagine being able to take on more clients because you're able to redirect them to your digital products that will help them DIY. I'm creating an academy that will guide my clients through the process of my coaching module so that I can take on more clients.
Contracts/ Forms - If you are using contracts and forms with your business, please move to an electronic form that will collect e-signatures.These e-forms will stand in court just like paper form. They are inexpensive and easy to use. You can get your forms back faster and have the system to send out completion reminders to your clients.
