/, Business Owner, Business Strategy, Entrepreneur, startupgold, TheStartUpGold/3 easy ways to use more technology in your business

Let’s face it. In 2019, if you are not riding the wave of technology, chances are your business is missing out on a world of opportunity. From sales through to operations, technology is simplifying traditional ways of working and improving efficiency. Interestingly it is still not a favourite topic for a lot of female entrepreneurs.  

An investment in technology can make all the difference in your business. I am not just talking Facebook and Instagram. Today, ease of use and flexibility for small business are key focus areas for tech providers when building their products. So we have less excuses not to embrace tech and many more reasons to love it.

Companies that use technology for competitive advantage will win in today’s fast-paced business environment

Is your business strong enough to compete in your niche?

Take the business health test.

Start Test

If you like what you hear about technology but not sure how to get more of it in your business, here are some ideas.

#1 Hire a tech savvy person on your team.

You don’t have to go with a full time person if you’re just starting up. You can hire a freelancer on sites like Upwork, Fiverr or Freelancer. A part time virtual assistant with a tech background will do for a start. Task them with researching what tools are in the market and how your competitors are using them. If you like the results the tools can provide, make the investment and get your techie to integrate it into your business. With so much competition in the tech market, you can get tools at competitive prices, a lot of providers also offer flexible payment plans.

#2 Always default to automation first

Automation can save you a  lot of time and money. The golden rule is as long as it is a repetitive task, it can be automated, you don’t need to hire a dedicated person for the job. Today there are easy to use tools that automate almost every part of the business process. Marketing funnels, scheduled advertising, email, messaging, billing and payments automation, there are lots of options to choose from. So think of your end to end business process and and research the areas you can automate. The first thing you and your team should consider when you start a new project is how you can automate.

#3 Attend conferences and exhibitions.

One of the best ways to adopt the newest and brightest tech trends in your business is to attend industry events . You will find enthusiatic exhibitors keen to tell you about their products and how they can help your business grow. You also gain insight from other business owners in your niche who can share what works for them.

If you are thinking, “well my business runs as a service which I deliver myself, I don’t need technology”. As a business owner you should continuously think of how to grow and technology can help you do that. Think of how many more customers you can reach if you are advertising your services online and building an email list of clients interested in your services. Today the world is digital and there are so many tech tools that will help you achieve better results faster.

Smart entrepreneurs keep up with the times and use what works to serve their market. Technology works
