TIP 1: Have An Online Presence

An online presence – even a very simple one that only contains up to date contact details, for example – is more important than ever. Being present and visible to potential clients and customers is a strong investment you can make in your business.

An online presence isn’t only important now. It is likely to become ever-more important in the future. Start small and manageable – don’t feel like it has to be overcomplicated – and hire a professional if needed.

TIP 2: Train Your Personnel

A key investment in your business is to ensure that your staff are trained, skilled, and safe in the workplace. There may be specific training to undertake that is the most relevant to their role or your industry. Choose this carefully and then build the training into your routine and systems when recruiting.

Even if you only have a small staff – or a team of just you! – it is still highly beneficial to ensure that everyone has the necessary skills they need. This can be a large financial investment or more budget-friendly.

Identify which are important skills in your workplace and then select training for staff that would best support these. A trained staff member could be a large initial investment, but over time they would help you to save time and win more work.
