We are introducing a new format to our Show Notes and Broadcasts. We received feedback our podcasts are too long (average 26 minutes). The shows have been restructured into 13 minute segments - each with a specific objective. Segment 1: What the show will cover and why it is important. Segment 2: What do you need to know to take action. Segment 3: How do you apply it and the tools available, and Segment 4: Tips and Insights from our experience. Thanx for the Feedback and keep it coming.
What are Today's Topics & Why is it Important?
The company uses technology as leverage for improvements and increasing productivity. In the past technology for small business was about what you could afford. Now it is about being smart and finding the right solutions. With the combination of SaaS (Software as a Service) and web applications, there are many great affordable solutions. The challenge – which ones?
Knowledge to Take Action
Most small businesses today will either start with Problems:
Not enough time – having technology means maintaining technology
Not enough expertise – technology used to be complex, but not anymore
What You Need to Do
I am not recommending any of these options, only sharing a list. Currently we are using Streak in combination with Slaask to manage customer relationships. Streak and Slack for production and projects, and G Suite for HR. Our accounting platform is Xero because of its ability to track individual costs. Simply do a "Best XXX 2020" and review features vs. price for your best choice. One last note - make your decision based on a 3rd criteria - connection. Make sure that your choices all talk to each other - remember this rule - enter data ONCE.
