Organization is a Winning Strategy
As a fairly new employee here at LunaWebs.com I've been going through the "getting started" process and one of the most important concepts I've come across is getting organized. Already my plate is pretty full here, and I'm trying to figure out a good organization system so I can manage everything. However, this is for whole businesses as well as individual workers. Organizing in one spot will help you realize how you can get organized in another. Show your customers, your sponsors, your vendors, anyone you deal with on a regular basis just how in control and on top of it all you are.
Let's look specifically at dealing with new hires as an example, since it's fresh in my mind. Do you have an action plan? Do you know everything you will need from them, and everything you will need to give them (including training)? Automate as much as you can and it will be easier on everyone and make you look good. As a new employee, the organizational skills of the company are important in order to settle in smoothly, and frankly, they can be comforting as you take on your new role. These ideas can be used in interactions with customers and affiliates.
Now let's look at a website. Is your site intuitive, easy to navigate? Organization here is of the utmost importance. It makes your customer feel like you're taking care of them. If you build confidence at this level, they'll have more trust in your ability to deliver on your products. Organization lets you streamline your processes, so employees can be more efficient and customers can be taken care of faster and easier. Utilize your site's innate organization features to give you a helping hand. The web is intended to be very methodical and structured, so use that to your benefit.
Organization makes things easier on you, easier on your employees and easier on your customers and affiliates. It has the added bonus of giving your company that professional shine your always striving for. It's such a basic concept but it's so important.
