Are you looking for shortcuts to have more success in business? In the words of Archimedes, “Give me a lever and a place to stand and I will move the earth.”

1. Work Smarter, Not Harder.

If you are finding that you spend way too much time posting on social media, consider hiring someone to take over some of your social media posts for you, or use an automated post planner such as Post Planner, Post Cron, Loomly, HootSuite, Buffer, or Recur Post.

2. Find Something YOU Are Passionate About.  

No matter what type of business you start, you need to sync it with your core beliefs and opinions. You need to dig deep and find your “why”, to light your fire. Maybe one of the things you are passionate about is serving others. Every successful business owner needs to have a service first mentality. This includes having a strategic follow-up system to serve others effectively and build lasting relationships.  Consider signing up for a service that will help in follow up, an organization such as Teamzy or Sendout cards. Use Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, and Messenger Video to connect face to face with your customers.

3. Save Time and Money.

Keep track of your expenses, mileage, and income through the Taxbot app. This will protect you in case of an audit and can save you hours of work and thousands of dollars down the road. Take payments through Venmo, Cash App, Messenger Pay, and Apple Pay to avoid fees. Fees are tax deductible but why not avoid them if you can? Use Tiny Scanner to turn a picture into a PDF file. Use Vistaprint or another service to order your business cards and supplies through. This can help you avoid unnecessary trips to the bank, Fed Ex, UPS, and a copy shop.

4. Connect Better With People.

MailChimp is a great way to email all your contacts at the same time. At a networking event, use messenger code to quickly find new contacts and connect with them on Facebook.  Use the RedStamp app to create a virtual business card to simply say, “Nice to meet you, looking forward to connecting” or “Look forward to learning more about you” with your picture on it. This is a great way to break the ice and provides you something to send to new friends to help break the ice.

5. Take FULL Advantage of Social Media.

Set up accounts with a variety of social media platforms but pick one or two to focus on and post consistently in. Some options are Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Youtube, Twitter, Pinterest, and Snapchat. Keep your posts positive, engaging, entertaining, and educational. Stay away from negativity, politics, and drama. Using apps such as pic collage, WordSwag, Over, Typorama, and Canva can help create beautiful and engaging posts without hours of work.

When you leverage your time and use these tools, you will attain success.
