Acquiring the essential skills to effectively run a successful business can be a time consuming exercise, and any means of short-cutting the process, deserves serious consideration. Identifying a single activity, that can effectively assist in the quick acquisition of several key business skills, would be especially beneficial to less experienced business owners. The activity identified in this article, can be undertaken by anyone, and will benefit even experienced business owners.

Positive Working Culture

Saadia Asif's curator insight, December 3, 2015 1:45 AM

Your people are your brand - a statement that is often stated but rarely lived up to by companies. The importance of a strong, positive culture within the organization has been a topic of discussion for a while. This article puts some numbers around this as well as providing insight on how we can help develop cultural excellence to deliver the highest levels of productivity.

Make your service offerings better with high quality deliverables and decrease the lead time it takes for your product to reach the marketplace. Thus you would be faster in getting your ideas converted into products and better at delivering the value-added proposition.

Daily 18-Minute Social Media Plan For Small Businesses by @OlsySpeak

Daily 18-Minute Social Media Plan For Small Businesses by @OlsySpeak | Innovation | Scoop.it
At first, spending under half an hour on managing social media may sound like a tall order, especially considering that an average user spends approximately 3 hours on social media per day. Before you commit to the new schedule, analyze your current one: which social media network do you visit first? Do you go through the same steps for each network every time, or prioritize your actions on the spot?

Another important consideration before you create your speedy social media management plan is what social networks your business needs to be on. Time equals money, especially for a small business—each minute wasted on a social network your audience doesn’t frequent is a minute you could spend interacting with your current and potential customers on a different channel. In the sample plan, we will go over the 5 major networks—Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Instagram—and steps you can follow with each one.

Instead of dividing your plan by network, we’ve divided it by blocks dedicated to an important social business activity. You may go over the 18-minute mark in the first few tries as you adjust to the new rhythm; but once you familiarize yourself with the routine, you will never waste a minute on extraneous social media activity again. Become a social media management rockstar with this 18-minute-a-day social media plan for small businesses.

So many social networks-- so little time-- some good tips to lessen the time commitment but still get effective results.

A good reason to determine which social media networks are best for your business:
