You’ve made it through the holidays and are poised looking ahead at the year to come. Hopefully, you are feeling excited at all of the prospects which lie in front of you. If you are like many business owners, you are looking at the next few months as a time to initiate some change and are reviewing the business finances. One area to look at is the technology your business uses.
Technology. You either love it or hate it, but either way when it comes to your business it shouldn’t be ignored. A problem experienced by many is the overwhelming changes in technology that seem to pop up every day. It can be a full time job to keep up and most small businesses just don’t have the time or resources. While a small business certainly will not have the need for all of the latest technology, it can be costly to ignore it all.
So, what’s a small business owner to do?
- Speak with experts. Most companies offer free consultations so take advantage of them! Find out which social media channels will be the most effective for your business, what the latest is in payment services, or if an app is appropriate for your business.
- Implement the technology which will make the most positive impact upon your business.
- If personnel is needed, compare the cost/results of hiring versus outsourcing.
- You may think about networking in terms of gaining customers or partnerships with other business owners, but much can be learned from discussing how your colleagues and competitors employ technology in their businesses.
