Optimise Your Business Process with These Easy Tips

1. Use a Centralised Project Management System

The most common struggle in running a business being unable to keep track of each task and deadlines. Most of the time, business owners rely on post-it notes, Google Sheets, and other conventional ways to keep track – which are becoming outdated because of the fast-paced happenings in the digital world. 

To be honest, they just couldn’t keep up! 

So imagine if you have one-stop-shop where you can wrangle tasks, rally your team, and keep a tight ship with just a few clicks. We’re talking about embracing centralised project management systems into your business!

Our team at TGH uses ClickUp to keep things organised and on track. We love its features like project and task management, collaboration tools, and customisable workflows, helping us avoid missing deadlines.

2. Enhance Workflow through Automation Tools

You know the saying, “Work smart, not just hard”? That’s what automation is all about! 

In this digital world, if you haven’t implemented automation in your workflow, you’ll probably lag behind in the long run. 

In a nutshell, automation tools empower you by automating repetitive tasks, reducing errors, and freeing up time for more strategic activities. 

Whether it’s streamlining email marketing campaigns, automating data entry processes, or automating customer follow-ups, these tools can help you maximise efficiency and drive growth to your business.

Plus, it saves so much time!

If you’re using project management systems like ClickUp, most of them have triggers you can set up so you can get reminders and to track your tasks for your internal team. 

When dealing with clients, most Customer Relationship Management tools also have automations that can be set up with in them. 

These features are used to steamline client interactions such as contact management, sales automation, lead tracking, customer support, and marketing automations.

Examples of these CRMs are HubSpot, Zoho, SalesForce, Keap, ActiveCampaign, and GoHighLevel (GHL).

There are also stand alone automations like Zapier, if you want to connect different tools with each other. 

Our tip? Do your due diligence and see which CRM fits your business needs best. Then dig a little deeper and trigger those automations for a better, smoother-sailing workflow!

Case Study: How Joe Tucker Systemised Property Principles Group with the help of a Virtual Assistant

Cheryl Leong and Joe Tucker

But don’t just take our word for it – our client-turned-friend, Joe Tucker of Property Principles Group can share a lot more!

Being a startup property business owner, Joe observed that most businesses stumble on a common thing: they are not usually prepared to cater all the clients and requests when a sudden influx of clients come. 

They have good processes to begin with, and because of the fantastic service he offers, there comes the good problem – how to serve the growing numbers of clients coming in. 

Being a one-man-team, he found himself spreading himself too thin, working longer hours, and sleepless nights just to make sure all clients are well-taken care of. 

But despite all his efforts juggling all the balls, he still dropped some of them. He saw how suddenly, his neat process is now overwhelming and disorganised, and he’s struggling to keep up with the demands of his growing business. 

Then he met The Growth Hub, and there was like a lightbulb moment – this is a chance to turn things around and regain his control!

He booked a call, spoke with our Growth Strategist, and underwent our Grow With the Flow program. Throughout the process and with the help of our experts, he was able to uncover areas for improvement, optimised his workflows, and embraced tools like project management software, CRMs, and automation like never before.

He finally learned the ropes of systemising his processes and brought some much-needed order to the madness!

And the best part? 

Joe now has a Champion by his side every step of the way – someone support him to keep the wheels going (even when he goes on a holiday!) as he scales his business to new heights. 

With this clarity and efficiency, Joe is now able to take on more clients, work smarter (not harder), and reclaim his time and sanity in the process.

Watch his full story below:

Joe’s story is just one of the many stories that TGH was able to support.
