Top 3 tips for systemising your serviced based business ss

  1. 1. Entrepreneur Systems Tips, Strategies and Advice by Kim Morris, Systems Expert and Chief Efficiency Optimiser Top 3 tips for systemising your serviced based business Systemising a service based business doesn’t have to be hard, but it is essential if you are to create a business that operates in a structured way, using smart and streamlined business practices. Creating systems and structure, for most business is at the bottom of the to do list, but hopefully this article will give you some ideas as to where and how you can start creating systems to simplify and streamline your business so that you have more time to focus on money making and value adding activities and less time on repetitive and routineactivities. Here are my top 3 tips for systemising your business that you can startworking on right away:Top tip number one: Make sure you have a process in place for responding toenquiries from new clients. I don’t know now many times I have made enquiries toa serviced business (because I need their help!) only to be disappointed becausethey never got back to me.This seems like a common sense tip, but you would be surprised just how manybusinesses overlook this important process. Start by working out the timeframe thatyou will respond to new client enquiries ie: same day, within 24 hrs, 48 hrs. Then, atthe beginning of each day, set aside time in your schedule to action new clientrequests. After all, we’re talking about getting new money into your business, so thisone should be a real priority.Top Tip number two: Create a Frequently asked questions section on yourwebsite so that existing and new customers and clients can refer to if they havequestions. This can be something that you build up over time as questions comethrough so you know that you are putting up things that people want to know. Buthaving said that, you could definitely start with some simple things like any terms andconditions that you operate your business by.Top tip three: Set boundaries in your business. This is a must if you want tocreate work life balance. Boundaries are what you set to determine how you willoperate your business are things like, what are your working hours, when do youtake on new clients, what type of people don’t you work with, do you answer yourwork phone on weekends etc.Its about identifying what you want from your business and where you draw theline, because if you don’t draw the line and create boundaries between you and yourbusiness and you and work customers/clients you will become a slave to both. 1 An Entrepreneur Systems Resource | 2012 | www.entrepreneursystems.com
  2. 2. Entrepreneur Systems Tips, Strategies and Advice by Kim Morris, Systems Expert and Chief Efficiency OptimiserBoundaries are not hard to set. You just need to think about what is important toyou and then write it down and stick to it no matter what. If you want to you caneven put it into a “business policy” that is displayed on your website so that you arebeing completely transparent about how you do business.When put into practice these three tips will increase your customer base as you willbe better managing your incoming enquiries, and reduce the time you spend onresponding to questions from both new and existing customers and clients.Finally, you will enjoy your business more because it is not controlling you – youhave set your boundaries and your business operates in alignment with them.
