When you have a manager for your business you’ll know things will get done and you can focus on those tasks that require your attention and you can put your attention to the things that really grow your business and help you to make money. Your manager could be the only person you have working for you or you may have a number of people and your manager can guide them and make sure they know what to do and how to do it correctly.
There are two types of managers that will help you with your business. One of them is a business manager. A business manager usually is the one that will manage everyone that works for you. This would include a Virtual Assistant, marketing assistant, and a ghostwriter just to name a few. You’ll need to make sure your business manager knows what you expect of each person and how to give them the information needed so they can do the job you’ve assigned to them.
It’s important to have weekly calls with your business manager so she can inform you of any problems that may have come up or how projects are coming along. This also gives you the ability to share new projects with her and if you hire someone else to help you can come up with a plan for how your business manager will work with this person.
The other type of manager that works good for business owners is an email manager. Emails can take over in a very short amount of time. Once they take over it’s hard to take it back. You may have signed up to receive something for free only to find out they put you on their list or you may have signed up for a newsletter thinking it would be valuable to your business, but then found out it’s not what you thought.
When you think about it, SPAM is not the only thing that clutters your inbox. You’ll see newsletters, promotional items, group and fan page emails from Facebook, information from Twitter, and so much more. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had folders set up for these types of emails? Your email manager can delete emails that aren’t necessary, she can file things you need to review later, and advise you of emails you need to review right away. You’d work your email more efficiently if you didn’t have all of those things to do each day.
When you use a business manager and an email manager for your business you’ll find you work more efficiently and you’ll have more time to do things you’ve only dreamed of doing. You’ll be able to add more to your business, work special projects, and have more time with your family when you don’t have so many things to do for your business.
