In the modern age of technology and tech-savvy business, there is no shortage of resources. Everything is available at the click of a button, a share-alike, a comment, and you have all that you need. However, knowing how and when to use all these resources is the trick. The ability to investigate, shortlisting and then using the needed gadgets optimally gives tech-savvy entrepreneurs a competitive edge. While setting up a business, one of the many constraints is finance. Because everything related to business in today’s day and age can be financially challenging, making the right choices is of the utmost importance.
Here are a few tips to help tech-savvy entrepreneurs sail through:
- Stay Connected, Stay Relevant
It is crucial to keep yourself updated with your market, competitors, skills and strengths, and offerings. Our phones today offer on-demand information and access customized to your interests and the industry you belong to. Being up to date is not just a competitive advantage but also a constant motivating factor.
- Plan ‘B’
With everything connected over intangible networks, databases, and information systems such as the cloud, it just takes one power outage, crashing a network to put all the saved-up work at risk. Check for systems that ensure business continuity in case of a disaster. Also, look out for plans that provide data recovery.
- Be Available
Voicemails and call-forwarding to your handy phones are a lifesaver when setting up a business. With you being away from your desk and deeply involved in every aspect of the business, usage of voicemails and call–forwarding provides a quick and effective respite. Why hinder your growth just because you weren’t available to pick an important call at your desk, right?
- Equip to be on the go
Budding and new business entrepreneurs often spend a lot of their finances equipping their workspaces with the best available technology. A good internet connection is one of them. The fact of the matter is that there is a high chance of you being on the move, visiting clients, stakeholders, customers in the initial days of your business to build your rapport and brand identity. Mobile broadband or a portable internet connection is a quick and efficient way to access emails and presentations on the go.
- Routes and Destinations
Can you imagine getting lost while getting to an important meeting? Imagine the embarrassment when you have to call up the client to let them know that you have lost your way or, even worse, will be late. The only way to avoid this kind of embarrassment would be the usage of GPS on your phone. Just a few clicks, and you are speeding away to your destination, ready to be on time, ready to blow their socks off.
It is easy to guard a factory or a storehouse, but guarding and securing your intangible business, most of whose transactions are on your phone is of the utmost importance. The advantages of conducting or operating your business on the go are innumerable. Data security options help you go it stress-free and with complete ease. Don’t forget to keep your phone with you always; all your hard work is in it; keeping a strong security password helps you to protect everything that is far too important for you to lose.
- Experts to handle
A new business demands a lot of your time, energy, expertise in many aspects at the same time. No matter how talented and equipped you are as an entrepreneur. You undoubtedly will have a breakdown if you try to do it all. The only way to escape the blunders of multitasking is to get experts into the picture. There is no job too small for an expert to handle. Email management to network administration, delegating these day-to-day but important functions will help you have your mind clear for more important business demands that no one else but you need to handle.
- The age of social media
Modern-day entrepreneurs believe and are striving towards creating an ethical brand presence. With exposure to billions of users – platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn etc., are becoming a part of the business development module. It has become the perfect place to get in touch with other entrepreneurs, prospective clients and customers, service providers, and the list goes on.
