Decisions that can Cost you Your Business

Every decision you make for your business can make or break your business. One bad decision can cost you the business you’ve worked so hard to build. That’s because there is an opportunity cost to every decision. If you don’t weigh the pros and cons, it could cost you your business in the long run. Cost effective solutions to any problem are the key to a successful business.

Here are a few examples of what we mean.

 

Doing Everything Yourself

Are you the type of business owner that has the mentality that you must do everything yourself? You figure it’s your business so you should handle everything from start to finish, right?

What if that’s one of the worst decisions you could make?

First, time is money. Every minute you spend doing one activity is an opportunity cost for another activity you cannot do. What if instead, you used the cost-effective solution of outsourcing certain tasks so you could focus on the tasks only you can do?

Looking for reputable services to handle some tasks while you run the business’s operations can be one of the best decisions you make for your business. You’ll be better able to focus on back-end issues that no one else can manage.

 

Not Hiring an Answering Service

Your phone is likely the backbone of your business. Customers call and expect top-notch customer service right away.

If you’re handling everything yourself, though, this can be nearly impossible. How can you answer every phone call, and deal with customers in-person, and online all at the same time? What about managing inventory, your staff, and all other back-end processes you must handle?

When you hire a phone answering service you take one of the largest burdens off your back while knowing your customers are getting the same level of support they would have received if you were able to answer the phones yourself.

Customers today want instant answers and if you can’t provide them, they will go elsewhere. Don’t take that chance.

 

Not Considering Other Outsourced Services

If you talk to your customers in other ways, such as messaging or you need help with scheduling, these are two other sources you can outsource as well.

Take a long, hard look at your business and decide what services you can trust to other companies – companies that specialize in certain tasks and industries so your full focus can be on growing your business.
