As a business owner, operating costs seem to increase with each passing day. This can be tough to handle, especially if the business is just starting or isn’t experiencing a lot of growth right off the bat. The solution to save more money is to cut expenses that you don’t need or can find more cost-effective alternatives for.
- Email Only - Small expenses like stamps, envelopes, and paper can add up if you’re constantly sending out invoices, bills, and advertisements. Try to do everything through email if possible. It can also be more efficient if you create an online contact list for all your customers.
- Stop the Print - Printing records and other business materials can be extremely expensive. Between the ink, printers, filing cabinets, and space to store everything you will spend an arm and a leg just to have your documents on file. Instead, back everything up to external hard drives. Just to be sure, also back everything up to a cloud storage service.
- More Than Punctual - It’s important to pay all of your bills and invoices on time. However, if you pay these early enough or in full, some vendors and suppliers will offer a discount. If you have the cash on hand you could save a couple extra bucks!
- Go VoIP - Stop paying hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for your current phone provider. Cut the phone cord and switch to a VoIP service. By using your internet to place calls, you could be saving up to half on your monthly phone bills.
- No Travel - Why spend the money on plane tickets, cab fares, hotels, and food when you can turn a business trip into an online phone call. By utilizing your VoIP service, you can chat via phone call or webcam on an online conference. The days of roaming all over the country, or world, are in the past!
