Top Tips on How to Train Your Employees

Setting Your Staff Up For Success

When you are a busy small business owner, it can be tempting to let your new employees hit the ground running. With all of the things you have to worry about in your normal day-to-day operations, you may feel that taking time to formally train your new hire would be the best use of your time. Failing to do so, however, could create a struggle with employee retention. To help business owners build—and keep—their best staff, here are some employee training tips.

  • Hire Smart: The training process is going to be much more effective and go much quicker if you hire people who are self-starters. When you have someone who is driven to learn, training them becomes more of a guidance than hand-holding process, freeing up more of your time even as you pour into your new hire.
  • Tap Your Team: Fortunately, you do not have to be the sole person offering guidance to the newest member of your team. Ask your other employees to get involved. Having your new hire shadow the staff member in the role closest to theirs can be a great way to use everyone’s time and resources, for example.
  • Use Tools: Training can start to feel tedious after a few days of repeatedly saying “Do this.” To get more creative and more effective with your training, utilize online resources and the power of your own position. Positive feedback from you can help encourage productive behaviors in your newest employee.

Should Your Business Create A Mobile App?

The Business Benefits Of A Mobile App

In our digital age, people are seldom found without their smartphones. In fact, around half of web page visits are coming from mobile devices! That means you should either fine-tune your webpage for mobile visits or consider creating a mobile app. Here are a few ways having a mobile app for your business could offer you a boost.

  • Marketing: If you design an app that encourages its users to activate push notifications, you create another channel for you to put promotional opportunities, helpful information, and other marketing tactics at your customers’ fingertips. Simply having your icon on their phone helps you stay top-of-mind for your customers, and showing potential customers that you have a mobile app shows that your business is advancing with the modern age.
  • Networking: Not only does your mobile app create an opportunity for you to connect with your customers, it also enables your customers to connect with one another. If you offer a social networking forum within your app, you can create an entire network into which you can invite prospective customers.
  • Service: If your customer downloads your app, it means he or she is very interested in your business. With an app, you not only keep him or her interested but you also have a platform upon which you can build a relationship. Offer your customers specials and resources over your app, and you make great service only a click away.

Get Big Efficiency For Your Small Business With Google Apps

Apps To Apply In Your Workplace

It can be difficult to see success in your small business when you are trying to compete with major corporations. Fortunately, Google has developed a handful of business apps that your small business can use to get huge results. Business owners who take advantage of these resources will see increased efficiency for increased success.

  • Gmail: More and more communication is being conducted over email, so it is important to use an email service that makes it easy to stay organized. Gmail boasts 25 gigabytes of storage for each account and the ability to search within your archived messages so you can easily pull up the information you need. When you use Gmail with Google Apps, you can use your domain to customize your email address (e.g. [email protected]).
  • Google Calendar: Sync your daily activity with that of your team’s for improved efficiency, utilizing the shared calendar options available from Google Calendar. You can even access the calendar from any device that can connect to the Internet, making it easy to stay on schedule even while you travel.
  • Google Docs: Encourage collaboration in your office by using this app. Simply share a document with your team and set permissions so everyone can edit and voilà- you have one document from which everyone can work instead of sharing it back and forth via email. If you do not like the latest edits, do not worry. With Google Docs, you can always access a previous version.
