Tips To Increase Your Profit

When the expenses of a company exceed its profits, the business often ends up in bankruptcy. Fortunately, you can prevent this from happening by taking simple steps and actions that will save the company money in the long run.

Here are a few ways to ensure that your business stays a float:

Invest in Technology

Using advanced technology in your business has great benefits. It allows the use of machines that perform tasks more efficiently and quickly.

  • Use computers instead of fax machines.

You can use computers in several ways like e-mails, chat, internet, and documentation while you can use the fax machine to send and receive hard copy documents. Doing away with this can save you from massive phone and electric bills in the long run.

  • Use Voice over IP.

Instead of paying for several phone lines, promote the use of internet calls through Skype, Google and Yahoo voice. It reduces expenses by removing unnecessary phone bills. If you truly need a landline then make do with one and use it for official purposes only.

  • Go paperless.

Send e-mails or chat your employees when you need to pass a memorandum instead of printing them out. Being paperless can save you tons in supply purchases. For transactions with paper, use recycled paper and only provide a limited supply for the entire staff. The method is not only time-efficient, but also environment-friendly.

  • Conduct meetings and presentations online.

Avoid personal clientele meet-ups if possible. Instead, do an online conference to save on time, effort, meal and transportation expenses. This also allows multiple meetings in a day and hectic businessmen will appreciate it.

  • Opt for cheaper ISP and web hosts.

Small-time providers are inexpensive because you don’t have to pay for branding. Most of them are also more lenient in terms of data caps and bandwidth. Get plans with limits so you can monitor your usage.

Use Alternatives

  • Purchase LED over fluorescent.

Use energy-saving bulbs like LED that are cheaper and brighter than old-style fixtures. Install monitoring sensors so your lights only function when needed. Open the windows in the morning and rearrange your office so you can maximize daylight.

  • Use centralized air-conditioning.

A centralized air-conditioning system avoids excessive use. Set the thermostat to a specific time so it automatically shuts down after office hours.

  • Sell old machines.

You can make more money by selling old units online, instead of letting them go to waste. Make sure they remain in good, working condition so you can fetch a good price.

  • Choose budget fares over first class.

If travelling is a must, opt for light fares and book in advance to avail of promos. Avoid bringing a lot so you don’t pay for baggage. You can also try airline – offered accommodations bundled with your booking for short trips.

  • Offer optional leaves or incentives.

If the office workload is less, offer optional workday leave to your employees or let them work from home. This saves you a lot from utilizing the office amenities.

  • Hire interns or fresh graduates.

Instead of hiring specialists, try hiring young professionals with quick learning abilities. You don’t pay for their specialization but you can train them in accordance to your company’s needs. Offer them a promotion after a while so they stay under you.

Running a company need not be costly as long as you are creative and disciplined. Developing employee responsiveness is the key to success.

 

Things CEO Should Do

Nowadays, it’s easy to start your business, find resources to help you, attend networking events in all shapes and sizes, and use online tools to market and run your business.

The drawback is that there are a lot of small business owners out there who are really glorified service providers or hobbyists. And they’re missing out on running and growing a true business. They need to be CEOs, not worker bees.

How does that land for you? Do you consider yourself a CEO, or does that word seem too big to describe you? Do you run your business consciously and intentionally, or do you let it run you?

A CEO of a business runs the business, whether it’s for a company of 1 or 1000. Here are the top 10 duties of a CEO.

1. The CEO knows the Deeper Why. More than likely, she started her a business for a reason… to provide a much-needed service or product and, in her way, to change the world. There is a Deeper Why that drives her, especially since much of running a business can cause someone to leave her comfort zone.

2. The CEO determines the trajectory of company. Along with the Deeper Why, there’s the Big Vision. Where is the company headed? What’s the big picture? As CEO, he doesn’t necessarily need to know how to get there each and every step of the way, but there is vision to guide action.

3. The CEO makes sure company runs smoothly. She looks at every problem, challenge, mistake, threat as an opportunity to plug holes, develop procedures, outsource. The buck stops here, as they say, but that doesn’t mean that the CEO has to do everything herself. Certainly not. But she does need to be ready to solve problems, not run and hide.

4. The CEO sets policies and establishes boundaries. CEOs get to decide what they want, how they want the company to run, how customers and prospects are treated, their value. If something isn’t going right or someone isn’t doing his job properly, the CEO needs to speak up and state what needs to change.

5. The CEO assigns work and delegates. The smartest CEOs know that they can’t do it all and that they shouldn’t. The company is going to be most successful if the CEO is working in his Zone of Genius and not in his Zone of Competence or Zone of Incompetence. CEOs hire well and pay well.

6. The CEO has goals: revenue, product development, personal development, etc. A CEO doesn’t just react to situations, people, and emails. She has a plan (most likely developed from her Big Vision) with goals. While she may have team, staff, and employees to help the company reach its goals, she’s the one setting them.

7. The CEO is detached. Of course, he is passionate about his work and the company. And it doesn’t mean he doesn’t get disappointed sometimes. But he doesn’t make decisions out of resentment, fear, or lack of confidence. A CEO understands that he is responsible for his actions and reactions, and not in control or responsible for actions or reactions of others.

8. The CEO knows the numbers. She knows revenue, monthly and year-to-date. She knows number of products sold. She knows retention rates. She knows the monthly expense budget. She knows how many new clients need to come on or how many products to be sold in order to make revenue goals. She has revenue goals.

9. The CEO grows the business, not just does the work. That might mean finding other markets or collaborating or hiring (or firing). This is the difference between working ON the business and working IN the business.

10. Most importantly, the business has a legacy beyond the business owner. It could go on once the business owner is gone or steps down. That’s when someone is a true CEO. Otherwise, he’s really just a glorified service provider.

If some of these duties smacked you upside the head a bit, no cause for alarm. We all falter a bit. My assistant just recently solved a problem that had been a problem for two years. Two years! I had tried this and that to no avail, and I finally threw up my hands and gave it over to her. Within a few weeks, problem solved. I should have put my Big Girl CEO panties on much earlier in this instance.

 

Why You Need To Know Deep About Your Business

No person in this world is perfect. Everyone has his or her own strengths and weaknesses. The person who is aware of his or her strengths and weakness is always more likely to succeed. This article discusses the analysis of the strengths and weakness and the steps to take to overcome them. This is the key to success in business.

Know your strengths and weaknesses

You must have heard about the SWOT Analysis. SWOT Analysis is nothing but the analysis of one’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Every business has to do this analysis before commencing its activities. This will place you in a better frame of mind and help you achieve your goals with ease.

Be aware of your strengths:

God has not created every man or woman equal. You could be stronger in some areas as compared to the others. One should be aware of their own strengths and learn to concentrate on them. Some people are good at accountancy whereas some have proficiency in marketing. A successful businessperson is one who manages to blend these two qualities in equal measure.

Make a note of your weaknesses:

Knowing your weakness is more important than being aware of your strengths. The best part of weaknesses is that while you should know about them, your competitor should not. Once you know your weaknesses, you should take steps to convert these weaknesses into your strengths. When you do this, you become less vulnerable. This can lead to your success in business.

Seize the opportunities:

Opportunity does not knock on doors more than once. You need to have the ability to seize opportunities and never let it go to waste. This is possible only if you are completely aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Nurturing your strengths and strengthening your weaknesses can provide you with more opportunities in life.

Get rid of the threats:

Every business will have threats. Running away from them does not solve the problem. If you are strong enough, you should try to meet the problem headlong. Remember that there will be an opportunity in every threat. If you catch hold of it you will get rid of the threats. This is a sure way to succeed in life. The best way to minimize your threats is to remain grounded in life. This enables you to have strong roots thereby empowering you to fight all kinds of threats.

Of course, you cannot do all these activities alone. Therefore, building relationships are very important.

 

The Challenge From Complain

When you don’t like something, what do you do?

Most people complain about it. According to research, most people complain once a minute during a typical conversation.

Shocking, right? It was to me.

It’s so socially acceptable to complain that it may not even strike you as strange in the moment.

You may not feel its effects, because you’re so used to it.

That doesn’t mean it doesn’t affect you.

The truth? Complaining is so toxic!

Complaining rewires your brain for negativity.

It can even make you sick. The extra cortisol released by frequent complaining impairs your immune system and make you more susceptible to high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and brain strokes.

Also, because we’re social beings, we naturally are affected by the moods of those around us. It’s called neuronal mirroring. Complaining is like smoking: you don’t have to do it yourself to suffer the negative effects.

Just as bad, every time you complain, you are putting yourself in the role of victim.

Playing the victim is bad for your business.

Woah, I’m not a victim, you might say! I’m just letting off steam!

That, my dear friends, is what is called an excuse. You don’t need to complain to let off steam. You can exercise. You can ask for advice and even empathy. You can talk about solutions, after you describe the situation.

So why do we complain?

The fact is, it’s easier to complain than it is to feel the problem and open to solutions. It gives you a little short-term relief.

And it’s a habit. For many of us, complaining is a learned coping mechanism we bring from childhood.

Complaining is a negative energy that interferes with you having the successful business that you can have. It interferes with your impact. It doesn’t change anything.

So I’m challenging you! For the next 30 days, commit to living complaint free.

Your energy will get a boost. Your business will benefit. Your clients and team may comment on the difference in your presence. You’ll see more possibilities. You’ll be more creative. You’ll feel more satisfied. You’ll be EMPOWERED.

During the challenge, if a complaint slips out, it’s OK! This is like any habit – you’ll need time to make the transition.

You as a business owner need to feel a sense of agency, a belief that your decisions have an effect. You need to be empowered.

Living complaint free is a great way to empower yourself. You’ll be surprised at the positive changes that ripple out.

Even if you’re not completely convinced, consider the evidence. Then try it as an experiment in improving your well-being.

Why 30 days? Complaining is a habit. To replace it with something better, you’ll need to do it 30 days in a row.

You can do this! When I first did it, it took me a few tries, but eventually I made it all the way through. And life was never the same.

I’ve needed a few repeats since then! And you may too – that’s all OK!

 

Things Should Consider For Employee Who Work At Home

It is becoming increasingly common for traditionally office-based employees to work from home for or all of their working time. Data from the Office for National Statistics show that 4.2 million people in the UK spent at least half their working time at home in 2014.

Some businesses maintain that they can only thrive if they have all of their employees under the same roof at the same time. On the other hand, others point to reduced costs, reduced office space, increased productivity that comes with a happier workforce, and the ability to adapt to what could otherwise be disruptive factors.

It is about finding a balance between what works for the employer and what is good for the employees. Assuming, as an employer, you are minded to agree to an employee or employees working from home, what should you consider before home working is agreed? Here are ten factors to consider:

#1. Is the job suitable?
Not all jobs can be done remotely. You will need to consider whether the role can be performed just as well away from the office by someone working on their own. You will also need to be satisfied that the employee will be happy spending long periods of time alone, and self-disciplined enough not to waste their time watching television or being unduly distracted by domestic matters.

#2. How will you manage employees who work from home?
You will need to determine what level of contact is expected between the manager, team members and the employee. Discussions may be required about working time, and whether the employee will be required to be in the office on certain days, or for team meetings, and whether office time will vary according to needs of the business.

If the arrangements are to work, it is essential that there is trust between the home-worker and their manager.

#3. Does the employee have somewhere suitable to work from?
The popular image of someone working from home is that they spend their time sitting on the sofa wearing their pyjamas with a laptop computer balanced precariously on their lap while they drink yet another mug of coffee. This is far from ideal and may soon cause health problems arising from poor posture.

So, it is important that the employee has somewhere suitable from which to work and that includes having a suitable chair and a table of the correct height. Not only that, it must not be used at the same time for a conflicting purpose.

Here is a real example from some years back from a company I then worked for. That company employed a number of document consultants who worked from home. One was married to a pub landlord whose inn provided hot and cold food that was prepared in the kitchen of the landlord’s flat above the pub. It was from there that my then colleague worked while the inn’s staff prepared food around her using the same table. There was also the inevitable electric cable for the laptop computer trailing across the floor of the busy kitchen. Needless to say, these working arrangements were stopped immediately when they became known. That leads us neatly to…

#4. Health and safety
By law, all employers are responsible for their employees’ welfare, health and safety at work “so far as is reasonably practicable”, and must carry out risk assessments. This includes homeworkers. Employers should risk assess the proposed home working arrangements before they start, and conduct regular re-assessments, which may include stress, isolation, workplace equipment, first aid, and accidents.

#5. Equipment
What equipment will be used by the homeworker and who will pay for it? Will he or she provide their own device such as a computer, laptop, or tablet computer, telephone, and Internet connection? If you are providing the equipment, can the employee (and members of their family) use it for other purposes?

Disabled employees may need special equipment, you are required to provide by way of making a reasonable adjustment for their condition just as you would have to have done had that person been office-based.

If the employee is using his or her own device, you will need to ensure that suitable maintenance arrangements are in place for when IT problems arise, as they inevitably will do. Are there any other duties they can perform from home in the event of their device not working? If there are none, will the employee be required to take leave while their device is being repaired or work from the office?

If you provide the equipment, does the employee know who to call if there is a fault or breakdown? Moreover, is it practicable for the company’s I.T. support to maintain equipment that may be physically located many miles away?

#6. Data security
Employees who work from home need to understand the procedures they must follow and what is, and what is not, an authorised use of data. For example, you should consider:

  • Who has access to the computer or device, and to any personal data stored on it?
  • How and when are backups of that data to be made? How and where are those backups to be stored?
  • Is the employee’s home regularly left empty? Is it properly secured?
  • Is the software password protected and is the data encrypted?
  • Will paperwork and other documents be stored securely?
  • How is work transported from home to office and vice versa?
  • How will confidential waste be disposed of?

Employers who are in regulated businesses, such as financial services, will need to pay close attention to whether allowing home working contravenes any regulatory requirement imposed on both the employer and the employee. This is especially so if the employee is using their own device.

#7. Flexible working
A request to work from home may form part of a flexible working request. Any employee with at least 26 weeks service may request flexible working. Employers must consider requests in a “reasonable manner”. The ACAS Code of Practice on the right to request flexible working provides guidance that employers are expected to follow.

There is, however, no right to to be allowed to work flexibly. All the employee is entitled to is to make a request to work flexibly and to have their request dealt with reasonably.

The assumption is that if the “ACAS code of Practice on handling in a reasonable manner requests to work flexibly” is followed, the request has been dealt with reasonably.

It should be remembered that home working is not a substitute for suitable care arrangements. Whilst working flexibly can make it easier to work around drop off and pick up times, employers should make clear to the employee when working time is and what is expected of them during working time.

#8. Trial period
Not all home working arrangements are totally successful from either the employer’s point of view of from that of the employee. Having a trial period of a suitable and agreed duration is a good way to see if it really is practicable for the employee to work from home during the times they want. At the end of the trial period, both parties should have a meeting to review how successful or otherwise the home working was and what lessons can be learned from it.

#9. Will everyone want to work from home?
That is unlikely for the following reasons:

  • Not all office based jobs successfully lend themselves to home working;
  • Even where home working is practicable, some people will need to be in the office, which means the opportunity to work from home will not be open to everyone with the qualifying service; and
  • Not everyone will want to work from home. There is an important social aspect of working with other people. Loneliness and isolation can be serious problems for home workers.

#10. Contractual provisions
The employee’s contract of employment will need to have some special provisions that are not normally found in a traditional office-based contract of employment. These additional provisions will include:

  • Notifying the employer in advance of any change of the employee’s home address so that a new risk assessment may be carried out before they start work there and so that insurance cover can be transferred to their new home address;
  • A right for the employer and their authorised personnel to enter the employee’s home at all reasonable times by prior arrangement to conduct a risk assessment and to install, inspect, maintain, and remove the employer’s property.

With the development of the “gig economy” some employees may choose to cease being employed and provide freelance services instead. This could be particularly attractive if the employee has skills he or she can provide to several firms. Employers should take care to ensure that the employee is genuinely a self-employed freelancer, not an employee or worker in disguise.

All About Hiring Process

Streamlining the hiring process can save time and money, and ensure that your company attracts the top candidates in your industry. This is especially true for those positions where the candidate pool is shallow.

It’s important for hiring managers to remember that potential candidates take “real” notice of a company’s hiring process as they are going through it to gauge how your organization might also conduct day-to-day business. If they get a bad impression, you can be sure they will tell their friends and colleagues. Bad news travels fast and if top candidates get a negative vibe about your company–they’ll go to your competition.

The following are some tips to help your company streamline the hiring process and attract top-tier candidates that can make a real impact in your business and help you stay ahead of the competition:

Tip #1: Evaluate Your Current Hiring Process:

Taking a look at your process allows you to see what parts are working and which are not. This lets you know what areas can be improved. Normally, the hiring process is created around the company and the hiring managers. It is wise to also take a look at your process from the potential candidates’ perspective-remember they will be the first to talk to others out in the field about your company.

Tip #2: Shorten Your Hiring Process to a Reasonable Amount of Time:

How long does your current hiring process take from start to finish?

Top candidates do not remain available for too long. They are in-demand and get noticed and get offers quickly.

Figure out what actual date the candidate needs to start and work backward while taking into consideration the number of rounds of interviews you want to conduct, resignation notice periods, background checks, reference checks, and offer stage.

A slow hiring process does not mean you’ll get better candidates; in fact many times it works against your best interest since it is common for “top talent” to get multiple offers and counter offers-remember your competition is looking for them too.

Tip #3: Communicate With Candidates Throughout the Process:

A very common blunder companies make is that they fail to keep in contact with the candidates throughout the process. Not only is keeping in touch with candidates just common courtesy, it sets a professional tone. It’s important that they know where they are in the process at all times. This is especially important when it comes to your “finalists.” If your first choice doesn’t come through, you will surely be looking at the candidates that are close runner-ups.

Tip #4: Move the Offer Stage Along Quickly:

When it comes time for the offer stage, it’s a good idea to keep things moving along quickly. Once you make a decision on a final candidate-present the offer. Don’t drag your feet! The more time you allow between the interview process, final decision-making, and presenting the offer, the more time there is for a potential candidate to get anxious and change his mind, or to receive an offer from your competition.

Tightening up your hiring process can really save your company time and money, reduce stress on hiring managers by freeing up more of their time, and ultimately attract the top-tier candidates that can help improve your business.

 

Reason Companies Are Using Travel Incentives

More and more businesses are using travel incentives to motivate and keep top talent. According to a survey by USA Today, most people (93 percent) prefer travel rewards over other types of rewards. Who doesn’t like to go on a short getaway or a fun outing? Around 46 percent of businesses are already offering this to their employees. Here’s why your company should be doing it too.

It grows your business.
A happy, motivated employee is a more productive employee. The Incentive Research Foundation says that companies that rewarded employees with non-cash rewards experienced a triple increase to their revenue. They also calculated that, with travel incentives, sales productivity could increase by 18 percent and could lead to a return on investment of 112 percent. That’s not bad at all.

It’s more exciting than cash.
Yes, we love cash. But the chances of cash getting used for boring things like bills or groceries are pretty high. After a few days, the extra cash is forgotten and its benefits barely felt. But an all-expenses-paid weekend on a luxurious houseboat is sure to stay with employees long after the experience is over. Plus, the Harvard Business Review says that “money is the most expensive way to motivate employees”.

It helps your team to bond.
If you run a contest at the office with travel as the prize, it will not only increase employee performance and comraderie, but it will also increase your sales. Your team just might thrive off the competition and sell more widgets than you ever thought possible.

You don’t always need to run a contest either. Sometimes, you can just plan a team getaway to build employee loyalty. The options are endless. For instance, you can rent gorgeous houseboats that can accommodate your whole team for a great price or take the crew on a little road trip to visit a national monument.

It puts your company on the favorite list.
When your employees show off their tans and fabulous lake outings to their Facebook and Instagram friends, your business will automatically scoot up on the list of most-desirable places where people want to work. Who knows? One of your current employees may have a friend that is perfect for that new position that’s opening up.

Weekend trips and fun outings are always in demand. What better way is there to grow your company and motivate your best employees to stay?

 

Why You Need Rotate Your Sales Manager

Complacency can be a big problem for a sales program. When the sales team does well, it’s easy to ignore them, to let things go along like normal and not think about changing anything. This can often be a mistake.

When it comes to your sales team, it doesn’t hurt to keep people on their toes, to keep them wondering about what’s happening next.

That doesn’t mean you should make them worry that they are going to be let go the first time they don’t reach their weekly or monthly quota. It’s not healthy for people to live in fear for their livelihood, but you do want to challenge your sales staff.

Don’t assume your current sales manage will be a permanent fixture. Many marketing experts feel the best way to keep a sales team fresh and productive will be renting your sales manager.

Most of the time, the person you currently have hired as your sales manager is someone who you pulled off your sales team. Chances are pretty good you made them manager because they showed strong leadership skills, and also put up high sales numbers each week. If this is the case, by permanently putting them in a managerial position, you’re depriving yourself of a good sales person. By rotating them back into the sales team, you make it possible for them to stay connected with their clients, the sales process, and continue to generate sales.

You never know what the future holds. By making the managerial position a rotating one, you’ll have multiple staff members ready to step in and take over if things go awry and you find yourself in desperate need of a good sales manager.

By making the position of sales manager a rotating position, you’re giving the rest of your sales team something to work towards. This often encourages them to stay motivated and to keep in contact with old clients while constantly reaching out to new prospects.

Managing a sales team can be tricky. Sales people tend to respond best when they have a close relationship with the person managing them. By routinely making sure that you send your current manager out on calls, you remind the rest of your sales team about the connection they share with the individual.

A good sales person will use knowledge gained from engaging in different activities within your organization to generate even more sales.

 

How To Motivate Salesperson

There are some basic traits that all sales people need in order to be effective. If you have these traits, then sales might just be your niche.

The first trait is personable. You will get nowhere in sales if you can’t strike up a conversation with another human being. The person who can grab attention, maintain a conversation, and make the other person feel like all their attention is being given directly to them is a real salesperson. Fulfilling the need of every person to be heard is what makes great salesmen. Your customer wants to know that they matter to someone else. If you are a smart salesperson, you will be that someone else. And the sale is yours.

An outstanding salesperson needs to be able to communicate clearly and concisely. You might only have two minutes to pitch your sale to your potential customer. Are you going to blow it rambling on about something that may or may not matter? If you can’t communicate clearly then you have already lost your sale.

Outstanding salespersons keep their word and are honest. Being able to communicate and being personable will never help you if you can’t be trusted.If a customer comes to you with a complaint, they should feel reassured that you are handling the problem, and they can count on you to get the job done. In addition to that, if you are selling a product or a service then you need to be able to stand behind that product or service. If you can’t, your ability to sell will suffer tremendously.

Great sales people must be convincing. You have to be able to show your customer why your product or service is superior to other products or services. Or you have to show that your product or service is going to help them in some way and they should not live without it. This motivates your customers to not only buy from you, but to keep buying from you.

The final trait of an outstanding salesperson is to be informative. There should not be an answer that you do not know. If a customer wants to know where the part number 11,342,051 was made, then you need to know exactly where that part was made and preferably the workers name who made it. Now this is an extreme example, but this is the mark of an outstanding salesperson.
