How do I know what technology and systems to use? (No replies)
That really depends on your set up. We’d say, start with what you are familiar with. These would be simple things like Microsoft office. We recommend that you are cloud based and so are not tied to a particular machine and that you have a back up in case something goes wrong (and it will). We highly recommend having a CRM system that allows you to automate your marketing and customer services. We also think it is a great idea to have a good email marketing system such as MailChimp. We recommend having an accounting package that is connected to your bank, invoicing and CRM. Don’t spend your time on administration. Get everything automated so you can concentrate on what you are good at. After that, it very much depends on your business and size. Look at your competitors and see what systems they are using. You can be 100% sure that they spent time researching their technology systems and if it works for them…..
We have a webinar based around technology needs and we recommend that you watch that. You can find it in the training section.
