Time-saving tips for small businesses

Many hours, days and weeks can be invested into the running and success of your small business, such as business research, development and those tedious but essential jobs.

We get that running a small business is not easy. As a small business owner it can sometimes be difficult to get things done. In order to see results that benefit your business we have compiled a list of time-saving tips!


The key to prioritizing your daily tasks is to write them down in a list and rank them in order of importance. By doing this you will be completing each task in order of importance and urgency allowing you to stay on top of your workload.


Are there other people who can do certain tasks, such as admin? Delegation allows you to remove yourself from the “noise” of the business and allows you to take a step back and think about the overall strategy and vision that you had when you first started the business.

Find a Freelancer!

Instead of dedicating part of your team to market research why not invest in the services of an external freelancer? Using specialist freelancers will ensure you have experience and dedicated professionals focused on the specialist tasks. This will provide you extra time to your principle operations, saving you both time and money.

Compare prices

Price comparison websites are a great tool for finding the best deals on things such as insurance, appliances, courier services and many more. By comparing prices it could significantly reduce the day-to-day costs of operating a business, allowing you to increase profit margins or price your services more competitively.

Go to the cloud

By moving business processes to internet-based services instead of running them on site, such as payroll and bookkeeping you will not only have greater access from wherever you are and whenever you need it, but you will also reduce the time spent on such tasks.
