Automate Your Repetitive Home Business Tasks Copyright © Chris Brown http://www.SuperiorIncome.com
If you work from home then you know that your time is valuable. Creating ways to automate your home business can save valuable time or even provide you with more time to build your business. By pinpointing things that take up largest part of your time, you will be able to begin to find more efficient ways to complete your work.
Managing your email or communication is a great place to start. Whether it be simple emails or answering questions over phone, you can become more efficient. Being in a situation where you have to tell people same thing many times can become overwhelming; don’t worry, you can easily lessen you workload.
If you are answering questions over phone then make sticky notes of common questions and answers. If you’re on go then get one of those tiny spiral notepads. Instead of writing out detailed answers, just make a checklist of things that you must say to your customer to answer specific question. Once you spend some time doing this you will end up with most of your answers memorized; this makes it easy to find even better ways to handle your customer’s questions or problems.
Perhaps email is where your redundancy is; email is even easier to deal with than phone communication. If you send email with same type of information to each of your customers then you’ve got a lot of typing to do; let’s make this easier!
Send an email to yourself – just like one that you normally have to send out to your customer – make it perfect. We will call this email your ‘template email’. Now, every time you have to send this type of email out, you already have a starting point.
