13 Feb. 2020. As a business owner, you know that time is much more precious than money at the moment. If you had more hours in the day you could carry out more needle moving tasks to get your business to the next level. A lot of entrepreneurs struggle with time management, so there are a few solutions that might help you. You might be struggling to hire due to lack of time and resources; maybe you don’t have time to run your social media accounts. There are a number of reasons why you’re low on hours in the day, so here’s how you can rectify that.

Virtual interviews

When you are desperate for new members of staff but you don’t have the time to onboard, the pressure can start to mount. This is a catch 22 situation as you need the additional help, but you don’t have the resources to conduct in depth interviews. This is where a digital interview could come in useful. With this modern day technology you have everything you need to interview and hire any candidate for a job. This is one quick and convenient way to save time within your business.

As a business owner, you know how important it is to stay consistent on social media. If your brand isn’t in front of your audience every single day they can quickly lose interest and move onto the next big thing. This is where social media scheduling tools come in very handy. You can essentially map out an entire month’s worth of content and have apps such as Buffer and Planoly publish your posts whilst you work. Although you will need to engage on social media in order for the algorithms to favor you, this is a sure fire time saver for every business owner.

Guest bloggers

Keeping up with blogging is so time consuming; it’s not something you are passionate about and you struggle to create innovative content. This is where guest bloggers come in very useful. They can write about topics that are interesting to your target audience and keep your blog content topped up. Blogging is well worth it as popular search engines will push you up the rankings as you include more and more relevant keywords.

Quarterly goal setting

Instead of setting monthly or yearly goals, many business owners are opting for quarterly goals. This method will give you a bird’s eye view of how your business is going to operate every three months. Setting a goal for each quarter is much more manageable and digestible than trying to accomplish it all in a year. When you set your goals in this way it will save your a lot of time and energy as you are actually being realistic with your time periods.

Hopefully some of these techniques will prove to be extremely useful to you whilst you take your business to the next level. You don’t necessarily have to be running a big corporate business to make use of these tools. You simply need to assess what is going to give you back some much needed hours during the day.
