Now that it’s nearing the end of the year, it’s time to start organizing your business to promote efficiency for the New Year. There’s plenty to arrange for new policies, business plans, etc. for 2018, which makes right now the perfect time to take advantage of our organizational tips. Starting with cloud storage implementation, let’s take a look at a few new ways you can organize your business for maximum efficiency:
Take Advantage of Cloud Storage
2018 is the perfect year to start implementing cloud storage into your business, especially if you conduct most of it online. Fortunately, there are plenty of cloud storage options to you, such as Google Drive and DopBox. Plus, with Google Drive, you can get the first 15 GB of storage for free. However, when you take advantage of cloud storage, you can clean up your hard drive and organize document better. Also, using cloud storage can help you collaborate better with your team, which can seriously improve your overall efficiency as a business.
Clean up Your Inbox
If your email’s inbox is packed with emails you’ve gotten over the past few years it’s time to do some cleaning. As important as it is to keep most emails, you don’t necessarily have to keep every single one. Plus, most emails you’re receiving are part of a subscription, so you should work on unsubscribing to email campaigns you no longer care about. You should also create inbox subject folders, so you can better organize your inbox. Cleaning up your inbox can help you think clearer by having a clean slate, which can mentally improve your efficiency.
Organize Your Social Media Accounts
The next thing you should work on organizing is your social media accounts. Although this may seem like a weird thing to organize, social media accounts can become easily packed with useless updates and out-of-date information. You can organize them by re-updated your accounts with new, fresh copy and pictures to promote your business and get rid of any social media profiles you no longer want to use. For example, there’s no point in having an Instagram account, if you regularly use Twitter and Facebook. You should also take advantage of social media tools to organize your accounts, such as JustUnfollow, which get rid of your followers that have low activity or aren’t following you back.
Organize Your Storage Areas
Whether you work in a small office or in a large company with a warehouse, you need to keep your storage areas clean and organized. In your office, organize your storage closets to ensure that everything is easy to find, including your office supplies, files, and other equipment. In your warehouse, organization is even more important. By having a product sorting system in place, installing pallet racking, and hiring skilled employees, you can ensure that your warehouse is running efficiently.
The end of the year is the perfect time to start organizing your business to boost your business’s efficiency for the New Year. Whether it be getting your taxes in order or implementing new cloud storage technology, there’s plenty of business organization you should take advantage of. Hopefully, with the help of this guide, you can take our tips and get your business fully ready for 2018.
