Have you ever heard the quote from Ben Franklin, “For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” ? When it comes to business, this really couldn’t ring more true. There are lots of things we do every day that may only take one minute to accomplish (like finding a digital file or answering an email). But if you could reduce the time you spend doing any of these tasks by 50% because you had a system in place, the extra time can truly add up! If you could invest that saved time in networking or more sales calls, you would see a huge return on that time spent getting organized!
Today I want to share with you a few areas of your business that you can streamline and then reallocate time for revenue-producing activities.
Lead Generation: Having automated systems to collect information from all the sources of all your leads and having a detailed follow up system in place
Sales Process: Importing contacts, having a system for follow up, creating tasks to check-in
Client Onboarding Process: Having automated systems for how you collect important info, use templates, administer questionnaires, set up calls, choosing all-in-one software for exchanging legal documents
Digital Files: Organizing them so they can be found in about 30 seconds
Email: Filtering out things that don’t matter, turning off notifications, decluttering, having a folder system in place
I encourage you to stop looking for the next new “magic bullet” to solve all your business headaches and simply take the time to address the time you spend in the areas I mentioned today. By doing so, you will give yourself more time to do all the things in your business that allow you to make the biggest impact and revenue! If you need support with this process, I would love to schedule a 30 min VIP Intensive with so I can help you spot all the ways you can maximize your time and energy in your business.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- Which elements of your business you can easily apply systems to in order to generate more revenue
- Some specific examples of how much time even the most simple tasks can take over the course of a year
- Why serious organization can be a better investment than a fancier website or a new team member
