One of the most important parts of owning a small business is ensuring that your productivity throughout every area of your business remains consistent. Any time there is a drop in productivity in one area, it has a domino effect on all other areas of your business.
Finding that perfect balance between productivity and profit can be incredibly tricky for many small businesses. How do you keep everything running smoothly while staying on top of ensuring that your business is growing at all times?
This is a question that many businesses struggle to answer. Today, we wanted to give you 7 quick tips to ensure your small business’s highest productivity.
It sounds simple, right? The thing about team meetings is they can get out of hand quite quickly, and then you waste more time than you can imagine. If you approach them more like a team huddle, you’ll find more success. Keep them brief, to the point, and break them up quickly. Be sure every meeting has a specific goal, and everyone comes knowing it ahead of time. If it doesn’t have a purpose, the meeting goes off the calendar
What do we mean by this? Look at it this way, if you were headed into your big box supercenter for everything you need for your home, wouldn’t you ensure you had everything on the list before you left, so you don’t have to come back?
Group all the tasks that are similar for each project together. Emails check in the morning, then at lunch for follow-ups or new items, rather than continuously during your day. Keep your tasks grouped together to save time. Apps like Clariti help keep information organized by topic.
