November 25, 2021by CBM Accounting0

Getting on the internet

We live in a digital world, as Madonna famously sung. Okay, I’m paraphrasing, but she may have if Material Girl had been released in 2020 rather than 1984. There aren’t many firms that wouldn’t profit from having a permanent web presence, regardless of their sector.

You need a location for your back catalogue, as excellent as social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram are at getting your song lyrics out there (to continue the music theme…).

Your company’s ideals and efforts will be represented on your website, which will make it appear professional and trustworthy. To make your own, you don’t need to be a computer genius or a billionaire. Weebly and WordPress are two examples of free website builders. Remember to include contact information such as your phone number, email address, and social media accounts. Also, make certain that your logo, brand identity, and “tone” are all in sync. If your company relies heavily on social media, Hootsuite or Buffer can handle it all so you don’t have to!

A website is not only a location where potential clients or consumers can learn about you, but it is also a place where you can learn about them. Google Analytics allows you to keep track of how visitors find you, what content draws them in, and how long they remain on your site. You may use Mailchimp to create newsletters, build mailing lists, and examine performance metrics once you know who your clients are. This will allow you to send out more relevant material.

Organizing your money

Money management and cash flow are two areas where new firms frequently fail to strike the high notes. If you make a mistake up here, the entire enterprise may be doomed. Xero and FreshBooks are two of the most popular accounting software tools. They allow both beginners and experts to manage their own bills, invoices, and intricate tax forms while also ensuring that you keep on top of your spending.

Many sorts of business arrangements in the United Kingdom need you to have your own business bank account, but you don’t have to go via the usual, and often costly, major bank way. Instead, consider a competitor app like Coconut or Tide, which are designed specifically for small companies and provide basic accounting skills.


Now that you have the tools to organize your funds, double-check that you have any to begin with. Your business may take payments from consumers on the move using mobile payment applications. Payanywhere and PayPal Here both provide a free mobile app and card reader that allows you to collect credit and debit card payments, track whether they’ve been processed, and quickly produce and send customized invoices.

Organizing your life

To ensure that a new business succeeds, make sure that everyone on the team is singing from the same song sheet. Even the most organized small business owners may benefit from management tools, particularly if they use remote workers. Google Drive allows you to share files and documents with others so that they may all work on them at the same time. Project management software like Asana and Trello take it a step further by providing a variety of collaboration and work allocation features. Clockify lets you and your team to keep track of how much time you spend on a project.

If your head is bursting at the seams with ideas, plans, to-do lists, dates, and times, you may free up some mental space by saving everything on a secure cloud-based software platform. You may use Evernote or Calendly to make sure you don’t miss an essential phone call or meeting.


Communication, speaking about communication, is crucial to every successful organization. Long commutes and work travels are no longer necessary; you can now accomplish everything from the comfort of your office – or even your own home. Wherever your employees or clients are in the globe, communication software like Skype or RingCentral Meetings may be utilized for phone calls and video conferencing. Slack is a business version of WhatsApp, but with hopefully less memes and cat images!

Organize your time.

Have you ever tried to come up with a song when another is playing on the radio? It’s difficult to keep concentrated when there are so many distractions around you, some of which are work-related and others which are not. Again, technology comes to the rescue with a selection of productivity applications that do a variety of activities to keep you focused on the work at hand. Sanebox can separate the wheat from the chaff in your email inbox, concealing distractions, blocking spammers, and reminding you to respond to critical communications. RescueTime can help you gain a better understanding of how you spend your time online and how you can regain control.
