My 5 Favorite Things for Boosting Productivity & Profits
With an homage to Oprah, here’s a list of my fave things for business:
1.Fave Travel Accessory: A 10-foot Phone Charging Cord – I’m tired of moving the furniture, hunting for an outlet, or charging my phone in the bathroom. Here’s my secret: a looooooong cord. Get one!
Fave Calendar Program: Acuity Scheduling – Before Acuity, clients would forget appointments, but no more. Its best feature is putting photos next to the appointment types so it’s easy to “see” what you’re scheduling.
Fave Mantra: Revenues Before Expenses – So many of my clients want to get a fab, new website, take credit cards, and create promotional products, but all of that can wait. You need a business card and a LinkedIn profile to start your business. Initially, that’s it! When money is flowing, please invest in your business with a good site, follow up strategy, promotional products, and the like.Before investing a lot of money ON your business, start bringing money IN to your business. #RevenuesBeforeExpenses Click To Tweet
Fave Resource for Boosting Productivity: My Assistant – When it’s time to scale your biz, you need an assistant. I’m fortunate to delegate tasks that I shouldn’t be doing to Rachael Davila. She schedules my email blasts, posts on social media, finalizes contracts, and updates my website. In short, because of her, I was able to grow my revenue this year.
Fave Automation & CRM: Get Response – After years of frustration with Infusionsoft (“Confusionsoft!”), I’m delighted to use a system that is logical, easy, and reasonably priced. For $49, my posts, email blasts, and even webinars are all hosted under the roof of Get Response.
