A not-so-secret to success
Having enough time and getting more done isn’t about working harder, but rather working smarter. The secret lies with leverage.
“High productivity comes from leveraging your time by doing only the most important things.”
Leverage is using other people’s time to delegate tasks they can do for you. This will allow you to focus on more important activities such as making a sales, building client relationships or growing your business.
3 Ways to Leverage Time and Increase Productivity
- Utilize technology
Take advantage of the available tools and apps that allows you to work smarter and increase productivity.
You can use a social media scheduling tool to post for you at a scheduled time; a video conferencing software that lets you meet with people without leaving your office; marketing software to deliver your marketing insights and reports, and many more.
- Focus only on activities that brings in the most results
Spend your time doing activities that bring in the most results to your business. As an insurance business owner, this could be talking to prospects, building client relationships or expanding your business.
Delegate the tedious and less meaningful tasks to other people.
- Bring in specialists and professionals
Leave the tasks to people who are already well-versed at doing something you don’t have the time to do. This can be a great way to fill knowledge, skills and experience gaps in your current team; and will save you time in teaching them how to do the work.
This is exactly what we do at InsBOSS. We help insurance agency owners like you with your daily insurance back-office tasks, so you can focus on making more sales and growing your business.
