July 5, 2016 Aditi Vora

Welcome to our weekly, Small Business Monday feature, where we’ll quickly highlight some important facts and trends that small business owners need to grow their local service businesses. 

This week we’re catching up on a Tuesday...

What to do when you've hit snooze one too many times...

...time to catch up. When you're running a small business, your weekends are less about relaxing and more about catching up -- it can get old, pretty fast. What are you doing about streamlining your business and making the end of your weeks more enjoyable and less stressful? There are many ways to better run your business, have you employed any of them? 

What to do when you're still using pen and paper...

...oh c'mon now! We've gone through this many times, there's absolutely no reason to be stuck using pen and paper when it comes to your booking and appointment scheduling. Your customers are beyond just making appointments between the traditional hours of 9-5pm. Your customers crave flexibility and convenience. So, next time they're looking to book an appointment after getting home late from work, they're hoping to just book with a few simple clicks, not a phone call. While your business might be offering service from 9-5, you'll be able to catch and fill up your appointment book during all the other hours of the day. 

What to do when your employees also slept in...

...time to get them organized! Another way to ensure your business is running smoothly? Try investing in a good employee management solution. You'll be able to keep your employees, and by extension, you, extremely organized. With the proper tools, you'll be able to ensure that your best employees are on schedule during your busiest days and you're optimizing the services that you're offering your customers.
