Time Management Techniques in Business (part 2 of 2)

Keeping the Whole Workplace Clean and Organized 

Ineffective time management is often the cause of inefficiency in your workplace. More importantly, you also need to have a working environment that is conducive for work. Hence, you have to keep your workplace clean and organized to eliminate the time it takes looking for materials or papers you need. The time you wasted looking for a sheet of paper among thousands of papers could have been spent on more productive work.

Most businesses, specially the ones in the food industry strategically place their utensils and other materials needed for food processing in areas where they could easily be accessed. This improves the efficiency on time with regards to food preparation. The faster they can prepare the food, the more they can cater to their customers needs. And when they have more satisfied customers, it will produce your much needed income.

Make a Specific List of Activities for the Day

What the List does for you personally also works on your own business or workplace. Setting a list of what to do for the day will make the work free-flowing. When you have a lot of priorities to think about, it is so easy to forget some of them. Hence, the list will serve as a little reminder of what other important tasks to attend to. This tip though only works on businesses that do not involve mass production.

Purchase an Answering Machine or Hire a Secretary

Answering phones usually eats up a lot of your time. Instead of using those precious minutes in propagating your own business, you waste it on talking to people who might not even had to do with your business.

Hiring a secretary to answer your phone calls can help you to fully focus on your work. The secretary will just list the names of all those who called and return their call if necessary. Remember that one of the best ways to proper time management is through reduction of distractions from your surroundings.

In business, every second counts. Therefore, an efficient system must be adopted in your workplace. You must always ask yourself if you are doing things at maximum efficiency because if not, then maybe its time to change a few things in your system.

Here are a few tips and techniques to remember for you to effectively maximize the potentials of your business.

Setting Goals for your Business

Every business should start with a clear and attainable business goal. This will serve as your ultimate destination and it is your responsibility to control the wheel in order to reach that destination.

Aside from using it as your motivation, the goals you set will also help you in the production process. Set specific number of quotas for your workforce per day so that you will efficiently meet up your own quota. Just like with your goals, you have to make your everyday quota realistic enough so you won't be frustrated because you did not meet them.

Dividing the Workload

Even with starting business, an equal appropriation of the workload to your employees will enable to get all aspects of the business taken care of. By dividing workload to your employees, you each give them a specific task in which they can focus on and dedicate their time too. Theory supports that dedicated tasks improve the speed of efficacy of the entire system.

If you know anyone amongst your employees who you believe is best suited for a specific type of job, delegate him or her into doing that task. That way, you can ensure that you have the best person taking care of a particular aspect of your business.

Have the Right Email Signature to Promote Your Blog (part 2 of 2)

So how should you fashion your email signature?

First of all, know your limits: you should keep to a very small number of lines, and you should avoid any formatting or inserting files that may make your email hard to read and difficult to load. Keep your email signature to three lines: your blog address, your name, and a description of your blog.

Why put your blog address out there? You need people to see what your blog name and address is, instead of having to make them click on a “click here” or “see more” link that you intend to hyperlink into their browsers. You need your name as author, of course, and you need a quick description of your blog in order to tell your reader what he or she should expect.

Make your blog description short (one sentence of less than fifteen words should be a good benchmark), but make sure that it meets someone’s need. For instance, avoid saying, “A blog about gardening,” and be more action-oriented, such as “If you need more information about how to make your garden attractive at all times of the year, then visit my blog!”

These are only a few tips that you may want to take into account as you go about using your email signature in order to promote your blog. For more information, note what kinds of email signatures work with you, and see how you can make your own better. If you are able to use your email signature well, then you will be able to get more visitors to your blog.
