Advice for online business owners

As an online business owner, are you struggling to find time to properly develop your business? Are you juggling incoming orders, invoicing, staff, stock control, packing, returns, damages, despatch, administration, and warehousing? Yes, it’s a long list, so it’s no wonder that all your time is taken in the day-to-day running of your business, with little or no time left to work on strategic issues, such as where you want your business to go and how to take it to the next level.

That’s because you are stuck working in your business, rather than on your business.

We’ve all been there. The best plans of settling down for a few hours to work on your business plan is unceremoniously swept to one side, as you find you find some of your staff are off ill or that stock delivery has arrived damaged or you’re running out of warehouse space or your packing line has gone down. Or maybe you are a sole trader. In which case multiply the above problems by at least 10.

When you’ve created and built a business from scratch, it’s understandable that you want to be involved in every aspect of the business. You probably personally handled every order when you started out and delegating tasks to others is not always easy – especially if you strive to provide first-class customer service.

One area that is easy to delegate is order fulfilment. Outsourcing your order fulfilment requirements to an experienced, trusted supplier can have a hugely positive impact on your business, in terms of increasing efficiency and profitability – and peace of mind. Not to mention, releasing your time and energy to work on growing your business.

Just imagine waking up knowing that you don’t have to deal with the pressure of getting your customer orders out of the door on time. What impact could this have on you and your business?
