“The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more” – Jonas Salk

As any entrepreneur can attest, success doesn’t mean your job gets any easier. Whether you’re running your own business, or working in any modern, high-pressure job, you know that advancing in your career is synonymous with expertly managing your time.

Quick takeaways if you’re in a hurry

  • Managing time effectively is absolutely required for busy people who are committed to producing their best work
  • Maximising your effectiveness means prioritising and organising your tasks very thoroughly, and giving yourself enough time to complete them properly
  • Tasks that can’t fit into your schedule need to be delegated to others rather than delayed to avoid creating a backlog. Very busy people can’t afford to be micro-managers.

How to manage your time as a very busy person

Getting control of your schedule isn’t just a convenient way to get an overview of your day, it’s a necessary tool to protect your professional reputation and your health. Poor time management can result in lower quality work, tasks being missed or forgotten, and unmanageably high stress levels that can impact your physical and mental health.

There are two important skills that you’ll need to cultivate to develop good time management habits: The first is prioritising tasks to ensure that you have full control and oversight of the most vital items; the second is delegating tasks to the right people in the right way.

Prioritising

Prioritising is all about focus. Successful people don’t do everything at once; instead, they focus on the most important things, and ensure that those things are done right and on time. The secret to prioritising well isn’t just deciding to generally focus more on “important” things, it’s about organising and determining precisely what is worth your time and attention, and when.

Order your list

Create a list of all your tasks, and arrange them in order of importance (not necessarily in order of urgency). The result should place higher order tasks, and tasks most closely associated with your job description at the top, and lower skill time-intensive tasks near the bottom. The end goal is that the tasks that need your personal attention the most are the ones that will receive your focus.

Block out time for each task

Determine how much time you’ll need to do each task properly, without considering the amount of work time you have in the day or week. This is important because it’ll help to ensure that you don’t try to squeeze high-value tasks into inappropriately small time slots, which will inevitably damage the quality of your work.

Schedule everything into a calendar and stick to it

Only after you’ve completed the above steps can you sit down and schedule everything out in your calendar for the week or month. Mark out your working hours, and fill them with your indicated tasks, starting at the top and working your way down until your time is fully spoken for. Don’t assign yourself any additional tasks, the rest will need to be delegated.

By doing this you’ll make sure that the tasks you’re doing will be given the focus and attention that they deserve, and that they’re the tasks that most deserve that attention and focus. The remaining tasks on your list are also deserving of focus and attention, but it’ll need to be someone else’s.

Delegating

People who are just “regular” busy, will generally manage their time by prioritising important tasks, and then delaying less urgent tasks for later. That works for them, because they might have a few extra hours free in a few days to take care of those issues. Very busy people, on the other hand, will never have those few extra hours, so trying to delay tasks is synonymous with forgetting them entirely. As a very busy person, you shouldn’t delay work for later instead, delegate it immediately.

Give up on controlling everything

The reason many very busy people won’t delegate tasks well is because we don’t trust other people to do things right. As a result we try to force time-consuming and low-priority tasks into our own schedule, instead of handing them off to someone else. A few people (think Elon Musk or the late Steve Jobs) compensate for this by abandoning all personal relationships and free time and reducing sleep to just a few hours per night. While those iconic business people are held up as the massive business successes they are, this approach is untenable for almost everyone, and unhealthy even for those who can survive it.

What we generally do instead is overcommit ourselves, and then only delegate tasks when they’re already late. The way to improve the situation isn’t to find a way to squeeze everything in, but rather to hand those tasks off much earlier.

Develop strong trust relationships

If you’re someone who feels a strong need to be in control, you’ll need to develop close working relationships with the people around you. Delegate the same kinds of tasks to the same people, and go out of your way not to interfere in the way they handle those tasks. This is important because it’ll ensure that you don’t waste time following up and interfering with those tasks, which will inevitably draw your focus away from the higher priority work you need to be doing.

Good time management is a practice, not a quick hack you can just apply once. Choosing the right tasks to prioritise for yourself, and overcoming the need to handle or be involved in every other task you’re ultimately responsible for takes effort and time. Managing your time well, however, is more than worth it. It will help you manage your stress, improve the quality of the work you do, and help you build that ever-elusive work-life balance.

Small businesses generally don’t have dedicated IT staff. Keeping up with the latest developments in IT, let alone maintaining, troubleshooting and fixing IT systems can be a real headache for the small business owner who often doesn’t have the necessary technological savviness.  So how can small businesses manage the technology in their companies? In this article we look at some possible solutions, but first we look at why it’s important for small businesses to be on top of IT management.

The risks of poor IT management

The most obvious risk to small businesses of poor IT management is downtime and the consequent loss in productivity. Costs can very quickly add up if staff are unable to access the information they need to get the job done. And if staff are unable to process a customer order because the system is down, then you risk losing customers too.

Furthermore, neglecting to make sure that you have the latest anti-virus software could result in costly malware infections. Losing private customer data to hackers, for example, could have catastrophic consequences for a small business.

But the risks don’t just relate to the maintenance and support of IT systems. What about the strategic management of IT resources? There is also a financial risk to small businesses in relation to having out-dated IT systems which may require more ongoing maintenance, than newer, faster systems. But who can make the decision to upgrade or acquire new systems? Ensuring that you are using the newest and best technology requires knowledge and expertise and a commitment of time and resources that few small businesses can afford.

IT management solutions

Many small businesses have approached IT management in an ad hoc fashion. Often the task is assigned to an untrained tech-enthusiast staff member who looks after IT on a part-time basis. In many instances this works perfectly well. However, because the person is largely untrained there is always the risk that they may overlook a crucial task resulting in compromised security or system instability.

Another solution often deployed by small businesses is to hire, often on a retainer basis, a computer service person to handle routine maintenance and to troubleshoot any problems. The disadvantage of this solution is that unscheduled or more complex issues may attract additional charges on a time and materials basis. In addition, these computer service personnel are often themselves small operators, and so their knowledge may be limited and their ability to respond quickly may sometimes be an issue.

Engaging bigger, more professional service providers is also a possible solution; however, the costs are likely to increase making it an unaffordable option for many small businesses.

Managed service providers

There is another alternative. Managed service providers (MSPs) offer various outsourced IT services including routine maintenance and help desks. MSPs provide their services remotely over the internet through shared screens and remote monitoring and management software. Costs are fixed on a monthly basis which provides the small business with that all important cost certainty. Typically services are provided through a service level agreement model agreed in advance with the small business.

Although the MSP model has a number of advantages for small businesses, it may not be the ideal solution for those companies that want a reactive service and on-site availability.

Employing an IT staff member

Of course, it is always an option to consider having an in-house IT resource. The decision on when to employ an IT technician directly is largely influenced by the number of staff and the complexity of the company’s technology. As a small business you will need to weigh up the costs of an outsourced IT resource against the costs of recruiting an IT staff member. Typically, when staff numbers reach the 50-75 mark then it becomes cost-effective to have an in-house resource.

Whatever solution you as a small business decide to employ, the important thing is to ensure that you are on top of IT management. Having the right IT management systems in place will pay dividends on your bottom line and will help to maintain a competitive edge.

Maintaining an adequate cash flow can make or break a business. Without adequate access to liquid cash, your business may lose the ability to act quickly on investment opportunities or handle unexpected events. And in the worst case scenario, not being able to pay your creditors will see your business going under quickly. In this article we share four tips as to how you can keep on top of your cash flow.

Cover your startup costs

Often businesses under-estimate the amount of startup capital they need or they are overly optimistic about how soon the operation will be making money. All new businesses require an initial startup investment and there are plenty of online tools available to help you work out how much capital your company will require. Involve your accountant and the bank’s business adviser in the discussions as early as possible. Also make sure that you are adequately covered for any unforeseen expenses.

Track the cash

Keeping track of your cash flow is essential and ideally should be done on a weekly basis. Scrutiny on this level will help you to have a thorough understanding of how money is being spent and will enable you to adjust your budgets in the light of actual expenditure. You will then be able to identify any problems at an early stage. In addition, it will ensure that you maintain a reasonable cash cushion so that you have adequate liquidity at all times.

Set proper procedures from the get-go

From the outset make sure that you have proper procedures in place to reconcile month end cash balances against bank statements. Balances should be reviewed each month, and any discrepancies should be promptly investigated. It’s also a good idea to make sure that you have different staff members handling cash to those who record transactions. In this way you will mitigate against misappropriation or employee fraud.

Chase up debtors early

In our very busy working lives, it can be easy to issue the invoice and simply forget about it as you concentrate on chasing the next order. However, it’s vital that you set aside time regularly to chase up any debtors that are slow in paying. Late payments will affect your cash flow and could mean that you in turn are struggling to pay your bills. Keep on top of this by following up with late customers sooner rather than later. And don’t be afraid to enforce any late payment terms in your contracts.

Maximising cash flow is a challenge for any business. And as your business continues to grow so will your cash flow requirements so it’s important you start off on the right footing. Following these tips  will help to ensure that your cash flow stays in the black.

This article is a list of tips and tricks that, if used in combination, are a nearly sure way to achieve your goals.

Achieving goals is not a matter of having “discipline”. It’s a matter of motivating yourself, and keeping your focus on your goal. Follow these tips, or any combination of them that works for you, and you should have the motivation and focus you need.

Here they are:

1. Chart Your Progress. I recently created a chart to track my progress with each of my goals. This chart is not just for information purposes, for me to look back and see how I’m doing. It’s to motivate me to keep up with my goals. If I’m diligent about checking my chart every day, and marking dots or “x”s, then I will want to make sure I fill it with dots. I will think to myself, “I better do this today if I want to mark a dot.” Well, that’s a small motivation, but it helps, trust me. Some people prefer to use gold stars. Others have a training log, which works just as well.  However, you do it, track your progress, and allow yourself a bit of pride each time you give yourself a good mark.

Now, you will have some bad marks on your chart. That’s OK. Don’t let a few bad marks stop you from continuing. Strive instead to get the good marks next time.

2. Hold Yourself Back. When I start with a new exercise program, or any new goal really, I am rarin’ to go. I am full of excitement, and my enthusiasm knows no boundaries. Nor does my sense of self-limitation. I think I can do anything. It’s not long before I learn that I do have limitations, and my enthusiasm begins to wane.

Well, a great motivator that I’ve learned is that when you have so much energy at the beginning of a program, and want to go all out — HOLD BACK. Don’t let yourself do everything you want to do. Only let yourself do 50-75 percent of what you want to do. And plan out a course of action where you slowly increase over time. For example, if I want to go running, I might think I can run 3 miles at first. But instead of letting myself do that, I start by only running a mile. When I’m doing that mile, I’ll be telling myself that I can do more! But I don’t let myself. After that workout, I’ll be looking forward to the next workout, when I’ll let myself do 1.5 miles. I keep that energy reined in, harness it, so that I can ride it even further.

3. Join an online (or off-line) group to help keep you focused and motivated. When I started to run, more than a year ago, I joined a few different forums, at different times, on different sites, such as Men’s Health(the Belly-Off Runner’s Club), Runner’s World, Cool Running, and the running group at About.com. I did the same when I was quitting smoking.

Each time I joined a forum, it helped keep me on track. Not only did I meet a bunch of other people who were either going through what I was going through or who had already been through it, I would report my progress (and failures) as I went along. They were there for great advice, for moral support, to help keep me going when I wanted to stop.

4. Post a picture of your goal someplace visible — near your desk or on your refrigerator, for example. Visualizing your goal, exactly how you think it will be when you’ve achieved it, whether it’s financial goals like traveling to Rome or building a dream house, or physical goals like finishing a marathon or getting a flat stomach, is a great motivator and one of the best ways of actualizing your goals.

Find a magazine photo or a picture online and post it somewhere where you can see it not only daily, but hourly if possible. Put it as your desktop photo, or your home page. Use the power of your visual sense to keep you focused on your goal. Because that focus is what will keep you motivated over the long term — once you lose focus, you lose motivation, so having something to keep bringing your focus back to your goal will help keep that motivation.

5. Get a workout partner or goal buddy. Staying motivated on your own is tough. But if you find someone with similar goals (running, dieting, finances, etc.), see if they’d like to partner with you. Or partner with your spouse, sibling or best friend on whatever goals they’re trying to achieve. You don’t have to be going after the same goals — as long as you are both pushing and encouraging each other to succeed.

6. Just get started. There are some days when you don’t feel like heading out the door for a run, or figuring out your budget, or whatever it is you’re supposed to do that day for your goal. Well, instead of thinking about how hard it is, and how long it will take, tell yourself that you just have to start.

I have a rule (not an original one) that I just have to put on my running shoes and close the door behind me. After that, it all flows naturally. It’s when you’re sitting in your house, thinking about running and feeling tired, that it seems hard. Once you start, it is never as hard as you thought it would be. This tip works for me every time.

7. Make it a pleasure. One reason we might put off something that will help us achieve our goal, such as exercise for example, is because it seems like hard work. Well, this might be true, but the key is to find a way to make it fun or pleasurable. If your goal activity becomes a treat, you actually look forward to it. And that’s a good thing.

8. Give it time, be patient. I know, this is easier said than done. But the problem with many of us is that we expect quick results. When you think about your goals, think long term. If you want to lose weight, you may see some quick initial losses, but it will take a long time to lose the rest. If you want to run a marathon, you won’t be able to do it overnight. If you don’t see the results you want soon, don’t give up … give it time. In the meantime, be happy with your progress so far, and with your ability to stick with your goals. The results will come if you give it time.

9. Break it into smaller, mini goals. Sometimes large or longer-term goals can be overwhelming. After a couple weeks, we may lose motivation, because we still have several months or a year or more left to accomplish the goal. It’s hard to maintain motivation for a single goal for such a long time. Solution: have smaller goals along the way.

10. Reward yourself. Often. And not just for longer-term goals, either. Above, I talked about breaking larger goals into smaller, mini goals. Well, each of those mini goals should have a reward attached to it. Make a list of your goals, with mini goals, and next to each, write down an appropriate reward. By appropriate, I mean 1) it’s proportionate to the size of the goal (don’t reward going on a 1-mile run with a luxury cruise in the Bahamas); and 2) it doesn’t ruin your goal — if you are trying to lose weight, don’t reward a day of healthy eating with a dessert binge. It’s self-defeating.

11. Find inspiration, on a daily basis. Inspiration is one of the best motivators, and it can be found everywhere. Every day, seek inspiration, and it will help sustain motivation over the long term. Sources of inspiration can include: blogs, online success stories, forums, friends and family, magazines, books, quotes, music, photos, people you meet.

12. Get a coach or take a class. These will motivate you to at least show up, and to take action. It can be applied to any goal. This might be one of the more expensive ways of motivating yourself, but it works. And if you do some research, you might find some cheap classes in your area, or you might know a friend who will provide coaching or counseling for free.

13. Have powerful reasons. Write them down. Know your reasons. Give them some thought … and write them down. If you have loved ones, and you are doing it for them, that is more powerful than just doing it for self-interest. Doing it for yourself is good too, but you should do it for something that you REALLY REALLY want to happen, for really good reasons.

14. Become aware of your urges to quit, and be prepared for them. We all have urges to stop, but they are mostly unconscious. One of the most powerful things you can do is to start being more conscious of those urges. A good exercise is to go through the day with a little piece of paper and put a tally mark for each time you get an urge. It simply makes you aware of the urges. Then have a plan for when those urges hit, and plan for it beforehand, and write down your plan, because once those urges hit, you will not feel like coming up with a plan.

15. Make it a rule never to skip two days in a row. This rule takes into account our natural tendency to miss days now and then. We are not perfect. So, you missed one day … now the second day is upon you and you are feeling lazy … tell yourself NO! You will not miss two days in a row! Zen Habits says so! And just get started. You’ll thank yourself later.

16. Visualise your goal clearly, on a daily basis, for at least 5-10 minutes. Visualise your successful outcome in great detail. Close your eyes, and think about exactly how your successful outcome will look, will feel, will smell and taste and sound like. Where are you when you become successful? How do you look? What are you wearing? Form as clear a mental picture as possible. Now here’s the next key: do it every day. For at least a few minutes each day. This is the only way to keep that motivation going over a long period of time.

17. Keep a daily journal of your goal. If you are consistent about keeping a journal, it can be a great motivator. A journal should have not only what you did for the day, but your thoughts about how it went, how you felt, what mistakes you made, what you could do to improve. To be consistent about keeping a journal, do it right after you do your goal task each day. Make keeping a journal a sensory pleasure.

18. Create a friendly, mutually-supportive competition. We are all competitive in nature, at least a little. Some more than others. Take advantage of this part of our human nature by using it to fuel your goals. If you have a workout partner or goal buddy, you’ve got all you need for a friendly competition. See who can log more miles, or save more dollars, each week or month. See who can do more pushups or pullups. See who can lose the most weight or have the best abs or lose the most inches on their waist. Make sure the goals are weighted so that the competition is fairly equal. And mutually support each other in your goals.

19. Make a big public commitment. Be fully committed. This will do the trick every time. Create a blog and announce to the world that you are going to achieve a certain goal by a certain date. Commit yourself to the hilt.

20. Always think positive. Monitor your thoughts. Be aware of your self-talk. We all talk to ourselves, a lot, but we are not always aware of these thoughts. Start listening. If you hear negative thoughts, stop them, push them out, and replace them with positive thoughts. Positive thinking can be amazingly powerful.

Does Your Recruitment Process Allow For Diversity?

Businesses are effectively a way to bring together the strengths of a group and use them to their best advantage while balancing out each other’s weaknesses. It makes sense then that diversity in the workforce has a positive effect on the success of your business. A study by Forbes highlights this positive effect; in surveying the executives of 321 companies reporting $500 Million or more in annual turnover, 85% agreed that diversity was the key to driving innovation.
Having said this, the subject of diversity is a tricky one, and a poorly managed diversity initiative can result in exclusion, workplace bullying, and discord amongst employees.
There are several areas of your business that you will have to examine; the first being your company culture, the second being your hiring process and its results, and the third being the employees’ initial experience of your company.

The Positive Effects of Diversity

Companies with genuine diversity initiatives in place are becoming more successful than their counterparts. In fact, according to a report from The American Sociological Association, “For every percentage increase in the rate of racial or gender diversity up to the rate represented in the relevant population, there was an increase in sales revenues of approximately 9 and 3 percent, respectively”. In other words: if your company’s diversity levels reflect your target market, you will see an increase in profits.
Having a broad and varied pool of knowledge and experiences makes an innovative company which can anticipate the needs of customers more accurately, due to a more adaptable company culture.

Types of Diversity

The word ‘diversity’ in a business context brings to mind stock images of smiling people from different demoraphics, drawing a cheesy image of ‘everyone working together’. This is a reductionist perception of what diversity is about, which is why many business managers lose out when it comes to creating a diverse workforce.
Diversity is more than different race or gender. It is different experiences and variable approaches to problem-solving and communication skills. When you stop looking at diversity in a superficial way, you can approach successfully creating and managing a diverse workforce.
According to the Harvard Business Review there are two types of diversity. The first, inherent diversity, includes aspects of a person that they are born with, such as gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. The second, acquired diversity, is the result of work and life experience, giving you insight into different ways of doing and seeing things. This holistic ‘two dimensional’ diversity is what results in business success.

How to Make Your Hiring Process ‘Diversity Friendly’

Creating a successful, diverse workforce requires effort to avoid the many pitfalls of hiring. Simply saying ‘we want to hire a diverse range of employees’ won’t result in a healthy diverse company. You have to ensure your team understands what you mean by diversity and put in place systems that encourage, rather than discourage it.
Here are some tips on how to avoid repelling desirable candidates and create a hiring process that encourages diversity in an authentic way.
Take Inventory of Your Recruitment Process
A diverse workforce doesn’t just ‘happen’. Habits, subconscious bias, and prejudice will mould your company culture unless you have the appropriate processes in place. Here are some points to consider when performing an audit on your hiring processes, from your job ad through to your onboarding process and beyond.

Are You Aware of Patterns In Your Hiring Cycle?

Have you taken note of patterns in your staffing problems and solutions? Do you have records of who applies for jobs, who gets interviews, and who gets hired? Are you aware of any patterns with regard to employee turnover or the average length of employment with your company? If not, you should perhaps make it a goal over the next 6 months to collect data relating to your employees. This data will allow you to get a good idea of where your hiring process is preventing rather than encouraging diversity and will show you where you need to focus your efforts.

Plan Ahead – Strategise Your Hiring Process

To create a hiring process that encourages diversity, you will have to plan out all the steps and processes involved, right down to interview questions asked and who is asking them.
• Identify the most important aspects of the role and use these as a focus to help create your questions.
• Take stock of your job ad – scan it for any language that creates barriers for specific groups of people. Emphasise flexibility and willingness to accommodate an individual’s needs if it means they get the job done – avoid using gendered or ableist language.
• Plan your selection strategy – do you remove names from all CVs before sifting through them? There are countless stories of people with ‘ethnic’ names finding their name is a huge factor in missing out on callbacks. In fact, in one study, applicants with ‘western’ names received 50% more callbacks than those with ethnic ones.
• Decide on your interview questions – have a list of pre-planned questions you have come up with to ensure every candidate is treated in the same way. Obviously during the interview you may veer off the list at some points, but your goal is to collect information about candidates that is directly comparable, so bear this in mind.
• Have a Hiring Panel – people perceive and observe differently, and having a panel of people present in the interview allows the candidate to be judged more holistically.
• ‘Shop’ your Hiring Panel – work with those involved in the interview process to encourage them to be aware of their personal biases and prejudices, so that they have as little effect on their selection process as possible.

How Do You Onboard New Employees?

It’s one thing to create a hiring process that encourages diversity, but if you don’t have an encouraging, inclusive environment for them to step into, you will find your hiring process becomes a revolving door (albeit a diverse one). One study found that businesses with effective onboarding processes reported 25% improvement in employee retention rates, highlighting the importance of thinking carefully about how you bring in new team members.
Successful onboarding has both a formal ‘this is what our business is about and this is the paperwork we need’ aspect, and an informal ‘this is how things are around here’.
If you reduce your onboarding to a simple orientation process of ‘this is your desk, these are the people you answer to, here are your forms, here are the wifi passwords’, you are essentially isolating the ‘newbie’ and increasing the length of time it will take them to settle in and get up to speed with their output.
Another way many hiring managers do themselves a disservice with their hiring process is by creating a one-size-fits-all template that allows no accommodation for individual needs. This will alienate those who it does not suit, resulting in employees abandoning roles prematurely, or not working to their full potential due to a level of discomfort in their working environment.

Onboarding Tips

For your onboarding process to successfully bring new hires into the fold, it needs to be strategic, flexible, and engaging.
• Onboarding is more than just orientation. It’s about bringing new hires into the fold and helping them successfully adjust to their role.
• Don’t tell the newbie about your company culture, show them.
• Arrange an opportunity to meet the whole executive team, not just those who they will work with.
• Adjust workload expectations to prevent new employees from feeling overwhelmed and allow them to observe the daily mechanics of the office. Whilst some employees may pride themselves in being able to hit the ground running, giving them time to acclimatise will result in improved output and morale in the long run.
• When introducing your newest staff member, mention particular strengths or skills – use this opportunity to ‘sell’ them to the rest of your employees.
• Schedule ongoing opportunities to give and receive feedback. Provide new employees with constructive feedback and encourage them to be forthcoming with their own.
• Keep the process flexible, don’t just assume that what would work for you will work for someone else. Ask how you can help them adjust – different employees will have different needs when it comes to acclimatising.

So, Regardless of how you structure your onboarding activities, remember the goal is to provide support that will result in confident, competent employees who provide value to your company and feel valuable too. With benefits including decreased employee turnover, increased employee satisfaction and productivity, and improved profitability, what are you waiting for?

Organizations are increasingly turning to managed service providers (MSPs) to handle elements of their IT needs as part of a collaborative arrangement with the internal IT department, according to new research from IT industry trade association CompTIA.

MSPs have been around for a long time, but adoption has been relatively low. As late as last year CompTIA found that only 3-in-10 organizations had any of their IT in the hands of an MSP, says Carolyn April, senior director, Industry Analysis, at CompTIA. But more than two-thirds of companies surveyed for CompTIA's Fourth Annual Trends in Managed Services Study, released Monday, say they have used the services of an outside IT firm within the past 12 months.

Companies have become more familiar with managed services and are turning to them for management of certain IT functions, particularly email hosting, customer relationship management (CRM) applications, storage, backup and recovery and network monitoring.

"While one-time projects account for some of these engagements, a significant portion is ongoing management of one or more IT functions by a managed services provider," says April, who is also author of the report. "There is a much higher degree of familiarity with the term 'managed services' and greater adoption."

Top MSPs extending their reach

Some upper echelon services are offering managed services around data analytics, business intelligence (BI) and advanced application monitoring — and April says there is increasing demand in those areas — but most MSPs have yet to extend beyond their heritage in managing network infrastructure and basic software infrastructure.

"I think mobile is an area where the channel is getting some traction but they're really not tapping the full opportunity there," she adds.

Part of the awareness problem in the past has been a definitional one, April says. In these days of software-as-a-service (SaaS), the customers (and sometimes providers) remain unclear about what actually constitutes a managed service.

"I think the definitional issue is an enormous one," she says. "It's one of the things that has made it extremely difficult to market size the managed services space and determine adoption rates."

The MSP community hasn't done the best job communicating the benefits of managed services to end users, April notes, though the fact that usage has nearly doubled in the past year suggests they've begun to do better.

Partners, not replacements

It is also important to note that while companies are increasingly relying on outside providers for part of their IT needs, MSPs generally complement rather than replace internal IT.

"Very few of these companies get rid of their IT staffs just because they join up with an MSP," April says.

Instead, especially in larger companies, bringing an MSP into the mix frees up existing IT staff to focus on more strategic projects.

"It elevates the IT staff and brings them out of the shadows within the organization," she says. "It allows them to focus on a custom app dev project or cloud initiative — something highly strategic. I think that's a win-win for your IT staff."

That also highlights that the reasons that organizations turn to MSPs have begun to change. In the past, April says, cost savings were seen as the primary benefit of MSPs. Now, she says, cost benefits are considered table stakes and customers are looking for additional benefits like generating revenue and helping the company become more efficient. Even security has evolved from being considered a roadblock to using MSPs to a reason for doing so.

April explains that companies have shifted their views over security as it has become clear that security problems are often the result of human error by internal staff.

Why IT turns to MSPs

CompTIA found that improving the efficiency and reliability of IT operations was a main driving factor for going with an MSP for 56 percent of companies with 100 or more employees and 47 percent of companies with fewer than 100 employees.

Enhanced security and compliance was a driving factor for 38 percent of companies of all sizes. ROI/cost savings was a driving factor for 33 percent of companies with 100 or more employees and 28 percent of companies with fewer than 100 employees.

The trade association found that six-in-10 respondents that consider their technology usage advanced are using an MSP for physical security services. Also, 63 percent of the same group are using an MSP for application monitoring. The managed services that are lowest in demand to date are videoconferencing, mobile device management and audio/visual services.

Two words – Social Media.

Social Media is the sticky, catchy, viral ‘glue’ that connects us digitally to everything we want, need and dream of.

Want more customers for your business? Get social. Looking for a product, service or brand? Socialise online and you’ll find it.

Customers and businesses chat together openly in this huge online playground. Facebook lets you find your exact customer, by age, gender, location, behaviour and very specific interests (Hobbit Desolation Smaug, anyone?) while Instagram uses #hashtags to bring people and brands together through #commonground and #commoninterests.

What’s a business meant to do in this increasingly complex and ever expanding social world to get cut-through?

At Easy Social Media we recommend these five key tips to get your business humming on social in no time.

Get strong online

  1. If you’ve got a website, get active on there – post regular blogs, keep your content fresh, use great imagery. If you don’t have a website, either get one – or make sure you have some kick-ass and easily searchable social pages so that when someone googles your business name, the first results they see point directly to a page (website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Tumblr) that has all your company details, a brief bio on what you do and of course – most essentially, your up to date contact details
  2. Create a voice and stick with it
    Social media is a conversation platform, and just like you can tell when you call your phone company and an offshore callcentre answers, your fans can tell when someone else starts posting for your brand. It’s really important to manage this – regardless of whether your social media is housed internally or externally. If you’re engaging an agency, make sure they understand your tone of voice. If you’re managing your own social media, ensure that you and anyone else who’ll be posting on your brands’ behalf, use the same tone, language and style for your posts.
  3. Be courteous
    If someone called your office and left you a message you’d call them back right? If a potential customer sent you an email you’d respond? Social media is no different. In fact, social media is less forgiving, as if you don’t respond, the whole world can see that you didn’t. Always be courteous, always reply when someone contacts you via social media.
  4. Be contactable
    I’m always amazed at how many social media business pages have little to no contact details, or have out of date address, phone and emails published. Social media pages are now appearing in the first page of google, oftentimes even above a company’s own website in the early days until their site is properly indexed and optimised. Make it easy for your customers to find you – share your contact details.
  5. Don’t give up
    Social media works. In some cases it works instantly, in other cases it may take weeks or months before you start to engage your followers in a way that resonates with them. Once this happens, you can enjoy the benefits of online enquiries, published online reviews and endorsements, user generated content and an increasing customer base to market your wares to. Stick with it, the sooner you start the better as social media isn’t going anywhere.

Good supply is an essential part of leading a wholesome lifestyle. But can remedies help us? It is easy for immigrants to purchase drugs online. How can you do this?

What about Trimethoprim and cialis.com? What is the most momentous information you must ask you health care professional about Sulfamethoxazole? More data about DRUG available at cialis pills.

Whether you talk to job seekers or recruiters, these days you’ll hear the same thing – the job market is a tough nut to crack. Job seekers lament of never hearing back from recruiters, or being overlooked completely, and recruiters having job lists that seem to be forever growing!

As a recruiter or manager, you might be feeling the pressure. Advertising hasn’t worked; your well thought out job ad has been tweaked and readjusted several times on the job board, but still, nothing.

Oh sure, plenty of response, but it’s all been tyre-kickers, would-be’s and wannabes. Frustrating! The recruitment horizon is not looking great, but you’re reluctant to lower your standards just for the sake of filling the positions, however pressure is mounting and you’re running out of time and options.

Sounds like it’s time to rethink how you approach recruiting, and try something entirely new. Talent is hard to find, everyone knows this, and while LinkedIn gives you access to a virtual network of talent, it also provides them with a network of potential employers, so you can’t rely on someone’s willingness to jump ship when you approach them.

In many ways, it helps to view head hunting on LinkedIn as a courting process – it takes time and finesse, and is not as simple as giving them a virtual tap on the shoulder and saying ‘hey come work for me’.

So what’s the next available option? Quite simply if you can’t find talent – develop it.

Finding motivated people who are perhaps not very experienced, works in your favour, especially as a start-up – you end up with loyal, committed employees who see the value in what you’re doing and work in a way that gels with you as an employer. That’s what we have done and it’s working exceptionally well for us.

What we’ve learnt – Hire in-house Help

Over the last two years, there’s no doubt that here at Haystack we’ve hired some great people. However, without the right guidance and mentoring, even the brightest spark will fade into uncertainty.

As a result, all our staff have mentors, specialist trainers or consultants.  For example, our Lead Developer gets training from one of the best developers in the country, and our Marketer and Content Writer, receive guidance from mind blowing digital agency specialists.

This approach produces excellent results and the energy in the office is fantastic, simply because we have such a motivated team.

Given that the environment is one of continuous development and learning opportunities for all (including the boss!), with everyone working towards the common goal of Haystack’s success, it’s no surprise that staff loyalty is high!

Hire Specialists Trainers – Not Contractors

Speaking from my own experience, whilst we’ve had some relatively good work done we’ve also burnt through a lot of money trying to achieve and communicate our vision.

Contractors can be great but when you’re a start-up, and your budget is tight, you can’t put too much faith in contractor’s skills. Not to mention, not having the resource in-house can mean losing control of the creative start-up process. This is why if you can; developing your in-house talent is a much better option.

Hiring a specialist in a specific area doesn’t need to cost you a fortune. At Haystack we do fortnightly, one hour catch up sessions, which costs anywhere from around $100 plus. The return speaks for itself.  More output, clear focus, and meeting our goals on a weekly or fortnightly basis means we’re constantly progressing, rather than stagnating for weeks at a time.

Be Prepared to Micro-Manage, but also to walk away

Any venture capitalist will tell you when they invest, they invest in a team. In my opinion, it should never just be about the founder – your team is what backs you up.

The unique thing about developing talent as a founder is you’ve got to be prepared to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty, just like the rest of your team.

It’s certainly more time intensive managing people when they are fresh and lacking in relevant experience. There’s lots of mini meeting’s, quick catch up’s, lots of consultations, and lots of ‘I just need your advice.’ Let’s face it, developing talent is not easy by any means, but it’s worth it, not only for the small wins and major successes, but even for the process – watching your staff develop, evolve, and find their own dynamics, is rewarding in itself.

One thing I do recommend is daily catch ups at the start of each day – even just a several minutes to talk to each team member will do wonders. Review what’s been achieved, what needs to be done next, and quickly refresh any long term goals.

Your meetings don’t need to be long; 15 to 30 minutes should do it, but if the meetings are going on for too long, that’s the time to consider getting hired help.

Invest Time in Finding Good Talent before you need it

It’s important to acknowledge that developing talent is not always an option for advancing a well-established business into the stratosphere. Sometimes finding good people quickly will be necessary if business suddenly booms, or if a new challenge arises that needs to be solved quickly and by someone who knows what they’re doing.

This is where good foresight and planning ahead to identify talent before you need it is essential. Being prepared to develop it is all well and good, but if you need talent now; you’re probably too late.

For example, New Zealand tech company Trade Me has over 80 positions to fill right now. How do they plan to fill them all? They will source it any way they can, job boards, employee references, approaching recognisable talent from other businesses, but they are also willing to develop talent as they go, and promote staff upwards and cross-discipline within the company

A final word

Developing talent is not easy, but it can be super rewarding. My advice is, don’t be afraid to hire raw, untrained talent, simply because you’re worried your employee might leave as soon as they’ve gained the necessary skills and experience.

Surprisingly it’s simply not all about the money. Employees stay because they like the team, they like the energy and most importantly, quality staff will be loyal to the business because the business has invested in them as people.

So go forth and look at your recruiting differently. This way, when shoulder tapping or fishing for talent doesn’t pan out as planned, you’ll have a back-up plan. Develop talent before you need it.

You already know that having a strong brand is essential to building a successful business, but what does branding mean on a personal level? If you want to make a name for yourself in your career, you have to have a polished personal brand.

The most important thing to remember when developing a strong personal brand is to be yourself — your personal brand is about you, after all. It should be a genuine, honest culmination of your interests, career goals and all the things that make up you, presented the way you want others to view you. Being yourself is the easy part — from there, it's all about maintaining your presence and building a following.

So how do you keep your online image in check? Business News Daily asked experts for their best tips. Here are six ways experts say you can perfect your personal brand.  

Google yourself

The first step to polishing your personal brand? Double-checking your online reputation through a simple Google search. According to Jean Dobey, founder and CEO of personal publishing social platform Hibe, the information recruiters find from Googling you could be enough to cross you off their list, if you're not careful.

Take some time to search your name on Google and see what information is out there already, what key things are missing, and what needs to be taken down, Dobey said. And yes, this includes things you might have forgotten all about, like old Myspace profiles, which can contain embarrassing content that can harm your reputation.

Check your privacy settings

You're likely on several different social media platforms for both personal uses like keeping in touch with old friends, and professional uses like sharing content you've created. But because you use different platforms for different things, it's important for you to be aware of your privacy settings.

Get to know the ins and outs of the privacy settings on each of your social media profiles, and be sure to stay up-to-date on any privacy policy changes announced by the platforms you use, Dobey said. But, most importantly, Dobey said you should exercise your judgment when you post on social media — because privacy settings aren't infallible and change frequently, you shouldn't post anything you wouldn't want others to see under the guise of marking it as private. [Personal Branding Plays Critical Role in Hiring ]

Think about your voice

Your personal brand is about you, so it's bound to be unique, and therefore, your voice depends entirely on your personality and the goals you want to achieve.

"While some people benefit from a more controversial and opinionated presence, others are able to connect through a more conservative and measured approach," said Danica Jones, marketing manager at consumer news and advocacy organization ConsumerAffairs. This means that you should identify whether your personal brand will include facets of your personal life — which can further humanize your brand voice — or if you should keep your personal and professional worlds separate, Jones said.

"While lifestyle bloggers can reveal far more about their personal lives, it's often challenging and risky for a political or corporate professional to do so," Jones said. "Knowing which way to bend hinges on a deep understanding of audience members and key objectives."

Be consistent

One of the most important steps in maintaining your personal brand is to stay consistent. Anytime you do anything online, you should consider how it contributes to your personal brand, said Matt Brady, founder and CEO of career consultancy Path2Hired. This means that every time you write an article, post an update on social media or interact with your audience, you should think about the overall message you're trying to convey. Keeping your brand consistent helps you build a strong brand that others will begin to recognize, Brady said.

Actively promote yourself

You can't just write an article or start a blog and expect people to find it and follow it. You need to promote yourself actively through all of your channels, Brady said.

"Branding isn't just about designing the brand," Brady said. "Successful brands must be promoted and get into the minds of the target audience. You can accomplish this by interacting with the community through branded social media accounts, guest posting on websites and blogs, building a personal branded website and other similar actions."

Make valuable connections

It's important to promote yourself, but it's just as important to promote others. Jeff Stephens, founder of blogging consultancy Top Shelf Blogging, said the best way to connect with people and establish your personal brand authority is to constantly recognize the work of peers in your community or industry.

"While this may seem counterintuitive, sharing others' content establishes a deeper direct relationship with that person and endears you to those you have yet to meet," Stephens said.

Branding

Are you designing a logo for your business or for that of a friend? There are certain aspects of logo design that should be considered when creating your logo.

The design of your logo should not be taken lightly. What might seem like a good idea at the time may not translate well when you need to use your logo for certain marketing and promotion projects in the future. Also, once you have an established logo and brand, it can be hard to change that logo at a later date without affecting the relationship with your customers and affecting the brand recognition of your company.

How to Design your own Logo

To create a logo, you can either contact a graphic design company or you could make your own logo. There are a number of online tools that allow you to make your logo yourself. A common function of these tools is to provide you with the option of selecting from a range of logo templates and then fine tuning that logo to make it more personal to your company.

Creating your own logo can save you costs and can give you more control over the final outcome.

What to Think About when Designing your Logo

If you choose to design your logo yourself, there are some key points that you should consider right from the beginning. Establishing these early on will help you to complete your logo design and will provide you with guidelines for the creation of further marketing material later on.

Choosing Logo Colours

Colours can be quite personal to your own tastes but it’s worth noting then when used in marketing and promotional material, certain colours can inspire particular emotions, some of which may actually reflect on how someone viewing your logo may feel about your business.

As an example:

  • Strong red colours often encourage feelings of hunger and also symbolise low prices. This is why many fast food chains feature red strongly in their branding and also why many low priced super-marts also feature red in their logo and building signage.
  • Green colours often go hand-in-hand with the environment and help to promote a sense of caring for ecological issues.
  • Yellow colours can suggest that a company is friendly and approachable – this is commonly used by insurance companies and other people-to-people services.

As well as colours, you may want to think about how your logo would look in solid black colour – i.e. if it was used on a fax or if a letterhead was photocopied – and also how a white version of your logo might look – i.e. when the logo is used on a dark background.

Images in your Logo

An image used in your logo can be a very quick way to spark a memory with someone who has seen your logo before as images can often be more recognisable and unique than words. When using an image, think about how that image reflects an aspect of your business or of your company culture rather than simply using an image that you like. The story behind your image can go a long way to encouraging interest from someone viewing your logo.

Another thing to think about when using an image in your logo is how scalable your logo is. The logo on your screen may look good and clear while you are designing it but remember that your logo may be much smaller when printed on a business card and much larger when displayed on your building signage. If you use a very complex image, it may be hard to make out when displayed much smaller than when you created it.

Your Company Branding

It’s worth remembering that the design of your logo will probably have an impact on the design of all of your company stationery and marketing materials. The colours used in your logo will probably represent your branding colours as a whole.

Think about what message your logo and other marketing material tells people about your company. Do you want to be represented as cheap and cheerful or expensive and luxurious? Or perhaps you want to be seen as trustworthy and professional or hard-working and dedicated?

Your logo can act as the foundation of your company branding and the message that you broadcast to your potential customers so make sure you get it just right before you order your printing.
