Lumulubog na Negosyo

4 na Tips Kung Nais Salbahin ang Lumulubog na Negosyo

ni Homer Nievera, CDE | Di naman lahat ng araw ay naka-angat ka. May mga panahong tila palubog na ang negosyo mong pinaghirapan at gulong-gulo ka sa nararapat na gawin. Narito amg apat na paraan para maisalba kung ano ang meron pa sa negosyo mo.

#1 Bisitahing muli ang Istratehiya

Kung tila di na gumagana ang unang mga istratehiya,, panahon na para bisitahin ito at baguhin kung ano ang nararapat. Huwag maging matigas ang ulo kung meron na palang signos na nagsasabing kailangan ng magbago ng plano.

#2 Iwasang mag-desisyon kung stressed ka

Ang taong stressed ay wala sa tamang pag-iisip. Lal una kung mag-dedesisyon ng mahahalagang bagay. Magpahinga ka muna. Matulog na maayos at kumain ng sa tama. Mag-meditate ka. Magdasal. Tapos, balikan mo ang mga plano at kumausap ng mga tauhan. Dun ka mag handang dumesisyon.

#3 Kunsultahin ang mga tauhan

Ang unang kinakausap sa negosyo ay ang mga taong may kinalaman ditto, gaya ng iyong mga tauhan. Kung may mga supervisor o manager ka, sila ang una mong kukunan ng report at reokemdasyon. Maigi din yung kakausapin mo ang mga tauhan sa baba o sa frontline. Sumama ka sa merkado, kung meron kang sales setup. Ipagsama-sama mo ang mga datos ditto at i-analisa.

#4 Humingi ng tulong

Tunay naming di mo kayang gawin ang lahat. Kailangan mo ding humngi ng tulong mula sa mga taong may kinalaman sa negosyo mo. Kung may banko kang pinagkakautangan, kausapin silang mai-restructure ang loans mo. Kumausap ng mga consultant, kaibigan at kapamilya. Pilling nga lang ang kakausapin mo dahil sa totoo lang di lahat ay concerned sa yo.

Di naman kaagad lulubog ang isang negosyo lalu na kung maaga mo itong naramdaman. Maging maagap. Umaksiyon kaagad habang matino pa ang isipan at puso mo. Magdasal ka para sa wisdom at discernment.

Kung maraming ka pang tanong ukol sa pitak na ito, puede naming mag email lang sa akin o kontakin ako sa FB page ko na nakasulat sa ibaba. Mag-aral at mag-tiyaga para lumago ang buhay. Gabayan ka nawa ng Diyos.

Social Media

4 na Paraan Para Mapalakas Mo ang Social Media Para sa Negosyo

ni Homer Nievera, CDE | Kung meron kang Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn at Instagram, malamang nagagamit mo na ang mga ito para sa negosyo mo. Paano mo nga ba ito ginagamit? Balikan natin ang mga ginawa mo na at malamang, di mo pa nagagawa.

#1 Iba ang Page sa Account

Hanggang ngayon, may mga natatagpuan pa din akong mga negosyo at organisasyon sa Facebook na “account” ang ginagamit at di ang Page. May pagkakaiba ba ito? Malaki! Ang account sa FB ay hanggang 5,000 friends lamang at ang Page ay hanggang ilan ang kayang mag-follow o mag-like dito. Kaya sa negosyo, FB Page ang dapat i-setup. Siyempre, dahil may FB (personal) account ka na, ito ang gagamiting pang-setup ng page. Gayundin sa Instagram, at LinkedIn. May business pages or business accounts na puedeng i-setup. Kasi, kung gusto mong mag-boost ng content, dito sa pages or business accounts, puedeng gawin.

Ok ba ang FB Groups sa negosyo? Oo – depende sa klase ng paggamit mo. Kasi ang FB Group ay para sa mga organisasyon at grupong may particular na pinag-uusapan, gaya ng sa kalusugan, negosyo at iba pa na malayang nakakadiskusyon at maaari pang mag attach ng files. Sa mga may negosyong organic na produkto o nutraceuticals na tinatawag, ok ang FB Group para ang sasali lang dito ay ang mga taong may nais dito. Kaya mismo ang FB, di mahigpit sa nilalaman nito. Ang FB Group naman ay karaniwang idinidikit na din sa FB Page, gaya ng Instagram na naididikit na din sa FB Page para madaling mag-boost (at kikita dito ang mismong Facebook na kumpanya!).

#2 Bigyan Importansiya ang Content

Ano ba ang nilalaman ng mga post mo? Yan ang unang tinatanong at pinaghahandaan sa social media. Ang pagbebenta sa pamamagitan ng social media ay ikalawa lamang sa dahilan kung bakit ka nandun sa espasyong iyon. Bale-wala ang dami ng followers ng page mo kung bagsak ka naman sa laman ng mga post o mensahe mo. Paghandaan ang bawat isang ilalathala mo. Wag basta banat lang ng banat. Tandaan na brand mo ang inilalabas mo kaya dapat consistent ka sa objectives mo.

#3 Magsaliksik tungkol sa ginagawa ng iba

Di naman kailangang mag-eksperimento kung may mga kampanya ang ibang brand (o ka-kumpitensiya) na puede mong gawing basehan ng sarili mong kampanya. Silipin ang mga ginagamit nilang paraan. Madalas, video ang mas angat sa mga taga-subaybay sa ngayon. Kung postings ng mga photo, siguraduhing maayos ang captions mo. Wag kalimutan ang contact details mo. Kung wala ka pang website, dyan ka mag-invest (bukod sa may libre naman gaya ng Wix). Kasi kung online ang target mong merkado, sa online din sila pupunta. Tip: kung may pera ang target mo, ang mga naka “free-FB” ay di mo merkado.

#4 Basahin at i-analisa ang Metrics

Bukod sa pagsasaliksik, basahin mo ang mga numero ng performance ng mga kampanya mo. Huwag iasa lang sa nakikita mong engagements (likes, comments, shares). Sa FB, puntahan mo ang “Insights” kung saan mo makikita kung gaano ka umaangat o bumababa sa mga klase ng postings mo. Malalaman mo kung ano ang mas epektibo at kung ano ang dapat ayusin pa. May nagagawa ang boosting ng FB pero kung di mo binabantayan ang numero, sayang ang pera.

5 Traits Every Digital Workplace Leader Needs to Have

The business world is moving extremely fast and we saw a lot of changes happen in the last few years. Companies in Australia are becoming more digitalized and employees are now using new technologies to help them work in teams. Still, every team needs a good leader and this is the case in the digital environment or workplace as well. So, what traits do you need to be a good digital workplace leader? Read on to find out.

Passion

If you’re not passionate about what you do, you can’t really be a good workplace leader. This goes for every team leader out there, but it’s maybe even more important in the digital environment. With so many new technologies being introduced, you have to make sure your employees are ready to engage their mind and soul in order for your company to succeed. And if you’re not enthusiastic about it, you’ll hardly be able to do so. This is why you might want to ask yourself whether the digital transformation really is something you’re enthusiastic about.

Ability to use data

In the age of technology, acquiring data has become a lot easier. However, this can’t really help you and your team unless you know how to use that data to help your company move forward. It’s safe to say that the business world is now data-driven, and if you can’t keep up with it, you can’t expect yourself to be a good team leader. If you want to become a better leader, you can think about learning more about the technologies that help you gather and process data. Luckily, finding such courses in Australia shouldn’t be tough.

Decision making

Being a workplace leader means you need to know how to make important decisions. We’re talking about anything from choosing the right office material to investing in the right equipment. So, if you want to be a good workplace leader, you need to make sure you’re ready to make big decisions. For example, if your company is about to move, you should know exactly where you want to move. Opting for a serviced office in Melbourne is a good idea, as it saves you and your team a lot of time and energy.

Communication

Every team leader needs good communication skills, simple as that. This is also the case in digital workplaces, as new devices can do almost anything except understand human values and emotions. What this means is that even in the digital environment or workplace, your team members need to know that they can come to you with absolutely anything. Another important thing to mention is that companies nowadays tend to come up with new goals quite often and it takes skills to communicate them to your team members.

Ability to delegate

No matter how good you are at what you do, there’s no chance you can get all the work done by yourself. This is why, if you want to be a good workplace leader, you need to know how to delegate. This means you should know what your limitations are and how to choose the right candidate for your company. If you know how to delegate, you can rest assured your team knows what they’re doing in the workplace and that they’re helping the company move forward.

These 5 traits are necessary to be a good workplace leader in the digital environment. Even if you think you have all of them, it’s still recommended that you keep working on your leadership skills as much as you can.

Productivity

4 Devices to Boost Your Productivity

A modern business person needs to work at 120% of their capacity at all times to attain superior productivity. There are always competitors to worry about and other more pressing matters to attend to. No one can accomplish all of this at the same time, but luckily there are gadgets to make things easier.

These gadgets don’t need to be expensive or particularly modern but they do need to fit into your workflow and your daily task organization. Here are a few items that any business would benefit from.

Smart locks

Security is one of the most important concerns for any business owner, especially for those who work from home. Traditional locks are useful and there’s a reason they’ve been around for this long, but they require you to carry a set of keys or a card with you at all time. Luckily, there’s a better solution – smart locks. They allow you to unlock the door using your phone, and there’s also the option of locking it remotely and installing a camera to help you keep track of the property.

Smart pen

There are countless ways to take notes these days, but the best one still remains simply putting pen to paper. It’s pretty fast and fast and easy to do, however, it’s tricky to go over these notes later on and to have others waste time as they try to decipher your handwriting.

This is where smart pens come in handy. They look and feel like ordinary pens, but they also make a digital copy of your notes. This lets you simply jot down your thoughts while allowing you to use the advantages of modern technology.

Noise canceling headphones

Day to day office work requires you to be a part of a team and to be surrounded with people, and sometimes it’s difficult to focus on the task in front of you with so much chatter around. High-quality headphones such as the ones from Focal Utopia allow you to work without interruptions, but still be around your colleagues. It’s not just about good sound quality either –  this piece of equipment should feel comfortable enough to wear all day so you can go about your tasks without having to constantly readjust the headset.

Pocket printer

Most devices we use these days are mobile and can be kept in your pocket. This is true for your communication station, your computer and your personal and banking data, and it should be true for your printer as well. It can be done with pocket printers that are connected to the computer via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and that can print out anything you need while still being small enough to fit in your pocket.

The printers move on a paper and leave a print. They can print in all directions and recreate photos as well, and they’re worth the money if you travel a lot and you can’t get access to a regular printer.

 

There’s a countless number of small devices that you can add to your office or daily life to make your day-to-day tasks easier. While none of these are a replacement for hard work, they are still very helpful in the office.
