  • How to convince clients you're trustworthy

    How to convince clients you’re trustworthy

    When you open your doors as a small business– be they literal or metaphorical – then you take on responsibilities. You take on the responsibility for your own livelihood and ability to make a living, of course, but that’s just the beginning. Most importantly, you take on the responsibility of your customers, of being able to meet their needs and do the things that you claim to be able to do.

    That’s quite a big ask, especially if you have relatively little experience dealing with the hopes and expectations of a client base. If you want your business to succeed, then it’s imperative that you understand the trust your clients place in you and your company could be the thing that makes or breaks you.

    Your business needs to embrace new tech or it’s going to fail

    There’s no one thing that goes into making a business truly successful. After all, a business is made up of so many different elements that you could never truly rely on one thing to make it a success over anything else. Because of this, it can often be hard to know what things you should embrace into your business and what is unnecessary. That being said, there are definitely exceptions to this rule. No matter what kind of business you’re running and how large or small it is, you should always be willing to embrace and use new technology. Technology is very much the driving force behind the way society moves and changes. If your business doesn’t embrace it, then there’s a pretty good chance that it’s going to end up falling behind the competition. Of course, many businesses want to embrace more recent technology, but they simply don’t know what tech to use. With that in mind, here are just a few of the most useful pieces of modern technology that can really push your business forward and give it a competitive edge on the competition. (more…)

  • The digital discrepancies that you need to be making

    The digital discrepancies that you need to be making

    We’re living in the digital age – and with that comes the uncertainty of it all. There’s no denying that there are some people who are complete whizzes when it come to technology and computers, and the majority of us are actually quite limited when it comes to knowing what to do. When you couple this up with trying to keep everything that we store on a computer, whether personal or private, it’s safe to assume that we don’t know as much as we should – leaving ourselves vulnerable to losing it all. It’s not even a case of misplaced, as you would do with physical files; instead, your documents and software can be lost forever through not following simple protocol within your business and investing in the right outsourced companies to help you keep secure. So how do we go about this? (more…)
