13 Signs That Indicate You Need Help

Need help maximising your productive time?

Sometimes earning more income is less important than reducing your cost overheads.  One of the major time-sucks in business is in getting clients in the front door.  There are plenty of them phoning you, sending you emails and filling in web enquiry forms which is great for business but the time it takes to deal with them should be better spent on actually delivering a quality service.

Never fear – there is a solution.  Any business that relies on clients making appointments can benefit in a range of ways by offering online bookings on their website (and/or Facebook page).  But how do you know if your business is a good fit?  Here’s a quick set of questions to ask yourself – if you answer ‘Yes’ to any of them you are a perfect fit.
