Finding a way to scale my business + manage by team have been huge in getting the The Savvy Community off-the-ground and functioning.
Here are a few of my tried + true tips and tricks:
1. D is for DELEGATE!
One of the best things I’ve ever done for my business is to delegate tasks I no longer have time for, or know that someone else can do better. Not sure what you can delegate?
I delegate: my social media, blog writing, graphic design, email, bookkeeping and accounting, FUNmail writing and I have a business manager that stays on top of everything.
2. A is for AUTOMATE!
Oh, sweet, sweet automation… by having my Director of Happiness (hello, delegation…) sign me up for basically auto everything, my team + I have been able to put things like Pinterest scheduling, bill-pay and email responses on an automated system. By having the mundane day-to-day or month-to-month things accounted for, we’re able to focus all of our creative mojo in other areas that better serve our time. It’s a win-win for all!
3. C is for COMMUNICATE!
It should be no secret that communication is key behind an ever-growing team and it definitely takes some time to adjust. With that being said, have any of you checked-out the magic that is Slack? Slack has been a lifesaver for my team + I and has made our communication, workflow and company culture a total breeze. It frees up our (already cluttered!) inboxes and allows us to have our communication all in one place. The best part? It’s easily searchable so we can find past conversations and topics if needed!
We use that in conjunction with Trello (a task keeping tool that we all have access to) and I’d recommend it to any biz gal and their grandma.
