Every good businessman knows that the only way for them to grow their business is through delegation. Delegating your task is something that you owe to yourself and to your organization.
How many of you have ever felt that there is so little time in a day yet too many things to do? Many businessmen are so used to working things on their own that they find it hard to even start assigning tedious task to an assistant. And even if we know that delegation is the right thing to do, we find it hard to identify what task to delegate and how we can delegate it and make sure that the work is done efficiently. It’s a dilemma.
I will be discussing how to delegate your task in another article, but in this article, I would like to discuss about why delegation is important for the growth of your business.
Delegation is important to your business because:
1. It helps you focus on income generating activities.
The main reason why we are trying to build up a business is because we want to have profit. Profit is the main reason why we are doing this. The problem, most of the time, is that we are overwhelmed with things to do that we are stuck with doing tedious task that are important for our business but not generating income for us.
Delegating those tedious and important task to someone will definitely help you have more focus on the things that can help bring in the profit for your business.
2. It gives you more time to think of how your business can improve.
The truth is, no one knows your business better than you. No one can think of better ways to improve your business than you. The problem is when you are busy with trivial things that you don’t even have the time to sit down, talk with your partners, and collaborate with them.
Task like checking your emails, deleting spams, responding to them, can take away so much time. They are important but takes away your thinking time.
There are a lot of things that you can actually delegate to an assistant. If you don’t want to spend for an office, you can hire a Virtual Assistant who works from home but is as efficient as an assistant working in an office.
3. It will get more things done for your business.
If you know your business process, start identifying which of these task can be delegated.
Automation is the key to success in any business. Hiring an assistant to manage your CRM or your email marketing campaign can really do a lot to your business.
One of the tedious but important things that our Virtual Assistant does for our client is managing their social media. Many prospective customers for your business is on social media and you need to be able to reply to all inquiries and get that sales. You as a businessman can spend all your hours doing this or you can simply delegate.
We all know that delegation is important for our business but sometimes all we need is acceptance – acceptance that there are people out there who can do these task for you. Sometimes even better.
If you are convinced that you have a lot of task that you can delegate, consider hiring a Virtual Assistant. It’s cheap but also efficient.
