Six Simple Ways Your Business Can Save Time And Money

It’s never easy running a business when you’re on a tight budget. This is often the dilemma many entrepreneurs face when they’re starting out. Sometimes it’s simply hard to get a company going if you’re constantly worried about spending too much of your earnings.

Here are some quick hacks you might want to keep in mind so you can save both time and money as a business owner:   

1. Automate the workflow process

Automating the workflow process is a great solution for businesses aiming to save time and money. By using the right tools, you will be able to reduce your employees’ workload - plus you might even need to hire fewer people in the first place.

As an example, data entry can be a tedious task that can require days to finish if done manually by your workers. The right program can easily get the job done in hours. The same can be said about preparing payrolls, sending emails to new customers, and a host of other repetitive tasks. 

Simply put, using automation is definitely a win-win situation for you and your employees.

2. Outsource

Sometimes businesses spend a big chunk of their money on hiring full-time employees. While having the right people on your team is a must, outsourcing provides you with the alternative of spending less. 

Working with independent contractors lets you save money since in many cases their services work out to be far cheaper. Generally, work-from-home professionals from various parts of the world have the same skills, knowledge, and experience you need for the job.

If you can’t find local talent that matches your organization’s needs, or if candidates are beyond your budget, you might want to give outsourcing a closer look.   

3. Take advantage of social media 

Instead of spending big bucks on costly advertising campaigns, you might want to utilize the vast array of free tools found online.

Using popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube can be a great way to reach your target market. Additionally, you can also try some of the many free or low-cost business tech tools available out there.    

4. Get sponsors for your upcoming events

Yes, it’s actually possible to cut costs on your events - by seeking sponsorship. 

You can approach relevant individuals and businesses who may be willing to shoulder a portion of the expenses. Send them a good pitch, explaining what you’re hoping to achieve at your event and how it will also benefit their business - such as allowing them to advertise their products or services to their ideal demographic. 

Make sure that your pitch is short and to the point (no one likes to read long letters), and of course that it has a respectful tone.

5. Go green

Ever heard of the saying “going green saves green”? Recycling and reusing can effectively help reduce your overall expenditure. 

Going paperless whenever possible is also a great idea. You can save a lot of space if you are using digital files and online cloud storage instead of keeping several office drawers full of documents. It’s far more secure too.

Furthermore, there is a growing trend among consumers who prefer eco-friendly companies.

According to a recent study, 64% of Americans are “willing to pay more for sustainable products” while 78% are “more likely to purchase a product that is clearly labeled as environmentally friendly.”   

6. Rent a coworking space or a private office

If getting a traditional office still isn’t practical at the moment, you might want to consider more budget-friendly alternatives.



We, here at The Farm Soho, understand the struggles that startup businesses face and so we’re offering affordable options for those who want to rent 24/7-access coworking desks and private offices on a flexible basis. We also have conference rooms and event spaces if you need them. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or want to book a tour with us.
