People would usually describe you as quirky, creative, energetic and motivated. These are all ideal qualities when you are running an artistic business or pursuing a freelance career based on your imaginative skills. Even in the creative world, you can’t forget about the basics of running a business, but have you been wasting your time unnecessarily? Whether you’re trying to inject more creativity into your business or you simply need more time to work on your ideas, it might be worth considering some of the following ideas. You will soon be able to maximize your time and efforts by getting some extra help in these areas.
- Number Crunching
With a creative brain like yours, you shouldn’t have to waste any time thinking about numbers, payroll or tax returns. Although these are fundamental elements of your business, you don’t need to do all the hard work on your own. Accountants can provide business advice, create workable strategies and prepare your tax returns for you. With an expert on hand you won’t need to worry about number crunching any longer.
The minefield of SEO can be overwhelming when you’re new to the world of online business. A SEO agency can provide you with all the tools and advice you need to get your business noticed in a busy online market. From blog posts to keyword adjustments you can allow the experts to give your creative work the platform it truly deserves.
- Social Media Campaigns
Staying on top of social media campaigns can be time consuming, but you can use special scheduling tools to save yourself a lot of time. If you don’t want to shell out for a marketing professional, tools such as Buffer and Hootsuite can help you stay on top of your social media feed.
- Legal Battles
When it comes to drawing up contracts and dealing with business disputes, this should not be on your daily to do list. Hire a business attorney to keep your legal affairs in order so you don’t have to waste time and worry!
- Technology Glitches
You might find it extremely beneficial to outsource your IT instead of dealing with problems all by yourself. If you’re running a relatively small business by yourself this might not be necessary for you. However if you’ve got a handful of employees who rely on a certain system to carry out their work, managed IT services might be worth your weight in gold. Reduce your downtime and keep your business running smoothly, no matter what.
So keep your creative energy flowing instead of banging your head against a wall with numbers, legal battles and technology issues. You need to spend as much time as possible focusing on growing your brand and business, rather than getting involved with fiddly and complicated business processes. As soon as you have found a solution to these time consuming matters, you will notice an instant improvement in the way your creative business operates on a daily basis.
