How to Grow Your Business When You Don't Have Much Time

by Guest Author 12 February 2019 13:19

Keeping a small business going takes your time and energy, leaving you feeling like you will never get ahead. You want to make your business grow, but who has the time to do extra tasks? You do! When you have as little as 20 minutes to spare, you can work on building up your business with these power-packed tips.

Educate Yourself During Your Break Time

Getting an education doesn't always mean enrolling in a college class. Use the technology and information that is at your fingertips. Find a podcast about marketing strategies, read a small business magazine, or page through an inspiring book from the business section of the library. If you dream about something new for your business, no matter how far-fetched the idea might sound, then the least you can do is learn all about it while you eat lunch.

Enroll in an Online Class

Will a certification in a specific area help you succeed in the future? Get certified through an online class. Most of these types of classes are flexible, allowing you to work at it whenever you get the chance. This is an investment in yourself, and it will pay off in the long run.

Network Through Social Media

Not all social media is a time-waster. On the contrary, when it comes to your business, you might not even use social media very often! Take a few minutes to update your company's Facebook page, make some new connections on LinkedIn, or reach out to another company you admire.

Think About Networking Opportunities in Your Area

Do a little research to find networking events you can add to your schedule. Meeting new people who can help your business in various ways is well worth your time.

Look for Money People Owe You

Do you have a few minutes to find some overdue invoices? Send out polite notices to your customers, asking for their prompt payment.

The next time you find yourself with a few minutes to spare, ask yourself what small thing you can be doing to move your business forward.
