Automate your Small Business With These 3 Simple Tools - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

Automate your Small Business With These 3 Simple Tools

In today's highly competitive business world, it is no longer just a good idea to automate your business. It has become a matter of financial survival. If a small business wants to do more than just staying afloat, it needs to become familiar with the best ways to make the day-to-day tasks of operation are automatic.


Here are 3 simple tools which you can use immediately to streamline your business and make it more competitive and profitable:


Automatic Bill Pay

It is more efficient and convenient for any business to be able to pay its bills automatically. This means that you have the software or apps to take care of the entire process of paying bills. You can upload bills, create invoices, and even pay yourself and/or your employees online. If you choose automated bill pay, using your bank, your bills can be organized and viewed in one secure place.


One of the largest bills a business owes on a regular basis, is that of paying its employees. This is a time-consuming chore that can be fraught with costly errors. Part of a thriving small business's automatic bill pay system should include a pay stub generator.


Automated Customer Relations Manager

This automated system, also known as CRM , will greatly improve a small business's ability to keep track of where its customers and prospects are on the path to purchasing. This builds the value of your brand while improving the loyalty of your client base. The more business that comes down the pike, the more difficult it is for a business to keep track of its leads. CRM helps you strategies to help acquire and retain clients through strategies such as market planning, advertising, and building relationships.


A good CRM marketing tool can handle this entire process, even sending relevant information to the right prospective buyers. All you have to do is make sure the data input is accurate. The tools a CRM can use include emails, landing pages, reporting, and web analytics, among others. You can even upload bills, create invoices, and pay your employees online.


Automated Outsourcing

As your business grows, it becomes increasingly more difficult to complete tasks and perform roles than you did when you first launched it. Outsourcing becomes more important than ever before. In fact, each one of the 3 tools listed is part of outsourcing. Paying bills, handling receipts, dealing with marketing, and other tasks that deplete your precious little time.


Outsourcing is the best way to allow experts to handle the delicate and important tasks of which there are far too many for you to do alone, with any degree of efficiency. Outsourcing can change fixed costs into flexible costs to give you more opportunities to budget your funds more effectively.


In this way, you are only paying for what you really need, and only when it is required. You can hire a consultant, freelancer, or website designer to do all of the things you have to do but have no time for.

Incorporating automation technology in your small business can improve efficiency, reduce expenses, increase productivity, and ensure customer satisfaction.


Automating your business provides you with the means to utilize the right resources to take advantage of these technologies and increase profits. It is important, however, not to fall for every shiny new tool that catches your interest. You must have a clear plan for automation or you could end up spending a fortune on products and tools that simply don't work.


Know what kind of automation you want for your business and have a clear vision of how that is going to help you fine-tune your strategies and streamline your business for success.
