Starting a business can be a great way to launch your career as an entrepreneur but it’s certainly a time-consuming role. When you’re first starting out, your day will be filled with seemingly endless tasks. Indeed, trying to focus on your core business activities can be difficult when there is so much else that needs to be done. 

If you want to save time and maximize your productivity, check out these time-saving tips now…

When you start a new business it's easy to become overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. Use these time-saving hacks for new businesses help with your productivity.

Set up an email schedule

It’s tempting to check your emails every few minutes, but this can mean it takes far longer to complete tasks. When emails require your attention, you stop what you’re doing in order to deal with your incoming mail. As a result, you are constantly side-tracked and delayed.

Instead, set designated times to check your email and respond to urgent messages. At all other times, focus on the tasks you’ve set out and seen how quickly you get through them. 

Break down large tasks

Some tasks simply can’t be done in one sitting. When you have a big task looming over you, don’t try to tackle it all at once. You’ll end up postponing it because you don’t have enough time or rushing it and missing important details. 

Break down large objectives into smaller, manageable tasks and complete them step-by-step. With a clear plan in place, you can work through things strategically and get them completed more quickly. 

Automate your activities

There are numerous tools that can help you to automate your business activities, so make sure you make the most of them. With easy access to Google Ads automation tools, for example, you can schedule your upcoming online marketing quickly and efficiently. Similarly, automated email marketing can keep you engaged with consumers, without the need to spend hours every week managing your email marketing. 

Use a central social media system

The vast majority of businesses, including those run from home, can benefit from having a presence of social media. However, there’s a reason that social media marketing is a full-time role. With so many different platforms to monitor, managing your social media can be extremely time-consuming.

When you use a central social media program, however, you can view your social media accounts in one easy window. Bringing together profiles from major social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, you can post, share content and engage with other users in seconds.

Outsource when you can

Most new businesses start with a limited number of staff. In fact, you might be the only Director and employee for quite some time! Although hiring staff can be costly, outsourcing to professional firms and freelancers isn’t. When you can outsource a task to someone else, take the opportunity to do so. As well as benefiting from their professional expertise, you can free up some of your own time to focus on your core business. 

Whether you use a virtual assistant, bookkeeper or web designer, you’re minimizing your own workload and still ensuring that key tasks are completed on time.
