Most entrepreneurs don’t have a lot of free time, and we can help you change that by handling your web design needs.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a full-time employee, married, parent, or a single tax filer, time is king. Contrary to popular belief, we DO NOT all have the same 24-hours. While some have their time taken up by work, others have parental responsibilities, pets, rest, and unexpected events like those clogged gutters that suddenly need cleaning or even fun unexpected events. Your buddy calls you up and says he scored free concert tickets on Instagram and wants you to be his plus-one. You’d love to go but you’re too tied up with work.
If this sounds familiar this blog is for you and every other entrepreneur looking to reclaim their time. Experienced and successful entrepreneurs often give the same great piece of advice, and that is to HIRE HELP! We get it, no one likes to pay out of pocket, especially for tasks that you can do yourself, but hear us out. Imagine the time you could save and get back delegating tasks. Not only is it worth the money, but if done correctly, it can put more money back in your pocket.
Check out how smart entrepreneurs are spending their time versus spending it building a website.
98% of businesses don’t make it past the first two years. Needless to say, customers and clients are the key ingredient to a successful business. When you aren’t spending time on administrative tasks, like building your website, you can focus on creating new ways to connect with both existing and new customers. Most people have to see a brand at least 7 times before buying a product. Use this newfound free time to post on social or to attend events that can bring your brand more visibility.
Of course you want to focus on the relationships between yourself and your customers (B2C), but you can also spend this time networking and connecting with other business owners (B2B). Collaboration is the lifeblood of building and marketing a small business. The cool thing about networking is, it doesn’t have to be a chore. It can actually be fun, and many bars host nights specifically for professional networking. As the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, find new ways and places to network.
Family time might seem oddly placed this high on the list, but it’s what’s important. We all have goals in business. While we’re passionate about our different fields, one of the main reasons we do what we do is to provide for our families and loved ones. However, if all of your time is spent on the business, have you provided the love and nurturing needed for your family? Over 40% of divorces are caused by money. Don’t be that family, that was so focused on money and creating revenue that you miss what’s right there. Take care of home first.
IG reels are current and probably the next big thing marketing-wise. But if we’re being honest, creating good content takes time. Planning the content, recording, then editing. Even other content like blogs and social media posts take time to create. I find content creation to be one of the more fun tasks because it allows you to dive in and get excited about your brand. However, being strapped for time makes it feel like a chore and sucks the fun right out.
Relaxation is the underrated pro here. Somehow society has turned into this ball of hustlers with a sleep when you die mentality. That is NOT it! We’re all humans trying to create the lives that we want, but I don’t think anyone wants a life without rest. When you take on all of the tasks involved with your business you’re choosing to give up some rest. Outsource some of those tasks, and turn your phone off this weekend. Your Monday morning will thank you.
The most successful people are innovators. They spend time not only redefining their roles/tasks, but they never stop learning about it. Spend some time learning more about your industry. It could be taking a class, watching YouTube videos, or just doing market research. More information can never hurt. Continuing your education will always increase your earning potential, making it an exponentially better way to spend your time than building a website.
Businesses must evolve to survive. What worked a year ago may be outdated now, or you may have too many clients to continue working that way. Every business owner should do an annual review, but the reality is, you should be reviewing your goals, outputs, returns, and processes regularly. However, when you’re bogged down with countless meaningful but meaningless tasks, it can be hard to find the time to take a step back and assess.
You’ve probably heard it before and it’s true; your business, family, social life, etc… none of that can be well if you are not well. Take some time for yourself and practice some self-care. This might be a solo night complete with a bubble bath and your favorite romcoms. It could be wine-tasting with your girlfriends. It could be seeing a therapist or buying yourself a new gadget. Self-care is completely different for every individual, but the commonality is that everyone needs it! Delegate that web design and go take care of yourself.
Time is the one thing we can’t get back. The key for entrepreneurs is to strategize yours accordingly so you don’t feel like you’ve lost any. Delegate tasks associated with your business. Designing a website is one of the most time-consuming tasks most business owners will come across. Don’t waste time learning how to build a site that probably won’t convert. Hire professionals, and reclaim your free time.
