MIAMI, Jan. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — You’ve resolved to lose weight and eat healthier, but what about resolutions for your small business? Here are five tips from Intelligent Office Miami for a more successful and profitable 2012.
1. Have an exit strategy
An exit strategy is the ultimate goal for a small business owner and should drive all decisions moving forward. Is your exit strategy retirement? Acquisition? A six-figure salary? Once determined, you can develop the road map to get there.
2. Review your business plan
A business plan is not a write-it-and-forget-it document. It’s a living, breathing blueprint for your company’s success. Fine-tune it based on the realities of the current economy and what you need to accomplish in order to get to your exit strategy.
3. Go Virtual
“Outsourcing decreases overhead, streamlines operations and leaves more time to focus on the core competencies of your business,” says Allan Sirotkin, managing director of Intelligent Office Miami, a virtual office and professional support staff company. “Virtual offices provide a professional address and on-demand office space, but Intelligent Office expands that concept by adding Intelligent Assistants® — a highly trained support team providing concierge-style business services. Virtual assistants enhance productivity without expensive employee-related overhead.”
In addition to virtual assistants, phone systems can go virtual and save overhead while increasing productivity, Sirotkin said. For example, Intelligent Office offers a new “Teleworker” technology that spares small businesses the cost of expensive PBX systems and phone lines while enhancing mobile telecommunications. A simple four-digit extension connects to your Miami office from virtually anywhere and there are no in-bound International calling charges.
4. Get thee to a Cloud
Cloud computing has a lot to offer small businesses on the go. By transferring company documents to a cloud, they can be accessed from virtually anywhere and by anyone who is granted access. It’s important to understand the different types of clouds, so do your homework, Sirotkin says. Many cloud providers, including services provided by Intelligent Office, feature software applications as part of their cloud computing service.
Networking is more than passing out business cards. It’s about building relationships, Sirotkin says. Chambers of Commerce and professional organizations offer resources for meeting new customers or vendors. Sirotkin is so committed to the power of networking that each Intelligent Office client receives a complimentary membership in iCommunity, a business connection and relationship building organization.
