Running your own small business is like your dream come true, but it also puts a lot of demands on your plate. Things can get pretty hectic, from acquiring new customers to keeping current customers happy and all the day-to-day work in-between. Want some easy-to-use methods to control all this madness? Here are three ways to help you take care of business.
Create an organized recordkeeping system
For many small businesses, sending invoices and collecting payments can feel like a full-time job. But financial paperwork doesn’t have to be a headache. To create a filing system to help you stay on top of your billing, start with a reliable go-to—the Avery Heavy-Duty Binder. The sturdy binder features One Touch™ EZD™ rings that open easily and lock securely to keep your pages secure.
Organize papers inside with customizable Avery Index Maker® Dividers. Free templates on avery.com make formatting a snap, and the clear labels virtually disappear when applied giving your tabs a clean, “printed on” look for easy referencing.
Make the pitch with a professional-looking presentation
Looking to acquire new business? Impress your potential clients by giving them a proposal in a personalized presentation binder. The Avery Signature Binder is easy to design online, with simple instructions to guide you step-by-step. Customize your binder with your business logo, contact information, and your client’s name, and you’ll get a full-color, photo-quality binder on its way to you in three to five business days.
Next, organize the sections inside with Avery Index Maker® Translucent Clear Label Dividers, made of extra-durable plastic for a stunning, contemporary look. For a nice touch, coordinate the customizable tabs to match your binder by using the same font, graphic, or color style.
Build your own reference library
When your business relies on bringing other professionals together to get the job done, you’ll need an efficient way to organize all your contacts. Whether you’re an event planner, contractor, or other service professional, you’ll want to keep all your resources in order in an easy-to-manage system. With the Avery Comfort Touch Binder, you get a reliable binder that’s engineered for frequent and long-lasting use. The elegantly embossed, extra reinforcement to the spine not only adds strength, it softens the binder edges to fit the contours of the human hand. The result—a durable binder that’s easier to grip, and more comfortable to hold.
Now it’s time to get your contacts in order. With Avery Ready Index® Table of Contents Dividers, you get 26 pre-printed tabs from A to Z, so you can alphabetize information from each contact such as marketing materials and brochures, and just like that—you’re ready to go.
