What systems should I have in place?

So this week, I am talking through the question what systems should I have in place?

A lot of the time people, maybe look at systems have been just a corporate thing or something bigger businesses need to do, where actually, I’m a firm believer that every business should have systems in place.

But with that comes a lot of confusion because when you start looking at systems and create systems, it becomes quite overwhelming because people are creating systems for a real big organisation

And you may think well that’s a bit of overkill for me, because I’m just a one man, one woman band or maybe a team of two or three people. So, a lot of people say, Yeah Okay, I understand I need to have systems but actually what systems do I need.

And then once you’ve done that you can then start adding to them

If you want some additional pillars in place, but those are the core ones that every business needs to be doing. And once you have those systems set out. You then need to start thinking about the strategies that you’re using for that system.

You can then set a really clear objective of what each strategy is going to do

So for instance with your marketing, you will want to do a strategy that’s going to build your awareness and your visibility. You’re going to want to have a strategy that’s going to be your lead generation. And that may not be the same strategy, and the messaging is certainly going to be different. So, by making sure that you have the strategies clearly set out as your marketing system you can make sure that you’re not doing too much of one thing.

But then, you’re missing the lead generation

So you need to make sure that you are doing effectively a strategy for each, so you want to make sure that you are covering all those pillars that need covering with marketing so your visibility, your lead generation, and your kind of warm up of what you want to build so your authority. So building up your authority in industry as well.

Making sure that you’re covering those with the separate strategies will mean that you’re going to have a bigger impact

And you’re going to be making sure that you are creating a real firm solid foundation for you in your business, and the industry. You also want to do this for each system. So, again, not just marketing but with yourself system, you want to make sure that you are doing a strategy for each part of the sales process.

So, by making sure that you’ve got those in place, means that you’re really setting solid foundations

It’s not as scary as you may have thought when you’ve looked at these big corporates and big companies and their systems are huge and there’s tonnes of things going on and I’ve got loads of big workflows and it doesn’t need to be that complicated. It can just be something as simple as just making it clear about what you’re doing and past that will also play a big role with what tool you’re going to use to do. So I use Asana, and it works really really well.

I hope you found the answer for what systems should I have in place helpful
