Today I wish to share the remaining four tips on what to leverage, with my fellow entrepreneurs who get stuck, when it comes to delegating a task. In case you did not read my first three tips, you can read it here.
Tips for Entrepreneurs
Tip 4 Custom Service: The first thing that you want to leverage is the Customer Service. To Entrepreneurs who are Sole proprietors operating from home, this tip may seem very difficult to accomplish. You may have one of these reasons stopping you from leveraging Customer Service. Not having sufficient money, the customer wants to talk to YOU only, YOU feel that by leveraging customer service, you are not giving him personal attention.
Actually, if we don’t leverage Customer Service, we may end up being emotionally drained Entrepreneurs addressing customer complaints and lose the creative spirit of running our business. However, using software helps. There are resources like the software Kayako that do an exceptional job in handling customers service.
Tip 5 – Automation: Instead of leveraging the time, energy, and money of people, we can leverage time and energy by using machines and automating their tasks. I personally love this and look into every opportunity to automate my tasks. For example, I use Aweber for email marketing and Byo Audio for Creating and hosting audios.
Tip 6 – Use Of Macros: This is a great tip and I learned from Mark Joyner’s Simpleology 201 Simple Science of Leverage. It is a system that you install in your computer where you record repetitive actions and the Macro system will do that action for you. I am sure many entrepreneurs, especially the Solo Entrepreneurs are not AWARE of macros and must consider using them. You can learn more about macros at imacros.com.
Tip 7 – Be Ruthless in Delegation: Initially as Entrepreneurs, it can be very challenging to delegate ruthlessly. However if you do that, amazing things happen. You will start looking at things outside of your comfort zone. This is because the moment we delegate repetitive things, as entrepreneurs, we have got to occupy ourselves with something with that we DON’T KNOW yet. This causes us to GROW as a person.
