areas of business save money

Saving money when we’re in business is something we all strive to do; as long as you’re making more than you’re buying you’re going to be here to see another day for a long time. However, it can be a lot easier than you might think to do that, especially when you’re just starting up. So saving money is a lifelong pursuit for everyone to follow, but for your business, it’s most important in the here and now. 

With that in mind, here are 3 frugal ideas for you to try out today to save some money on your business operations.

On Your Advertising 

If you’re a small business, chances are you’re not shooting for the stars yet in terms of advertising your brand and its products. And yet, advertising is something that’s a lot easier nowadays due to the invention of the internet. It’s also a lot cheaper because of ideas like social media pages and carefully crafted content posts that you can make yourself at no extra cost. 

When you’re directly targeting the public on a basic level by contacting them through their use of technology. Direct people towards your website with targeted ads and use of Facebook’s rather cheap promotion system, and then use SEO to good effect on your own website. It sounds a lot simpler than it is in practice, but once you’re used to it, it’ll be easy. 

Your Phone Line 

A phone line is something every business has. Yet, it can be something expensive to set up, is another bill on top of everything else you have to pay, and requires maintenance you’ll have to pay for whenever it goes down. But it turns out, there’s other solutions for you to look into rather than tailor make your own phone number. 

For example, instead of forking out for an entire phone line system, and someone or a whole team to manage it, you can instead try out VoIP services. This way you can use your already established internet system, which you already run your network off of for your business administration needs, to both allows calls in and out. 

With Your Employees 

And no, this doesn’t mean lay them off when you need to. Instead, cut down on the expenses you don’t need to pay when it comes to working your payroll. Of course they’re still going to need a benefits package, but there’s some other office routines you could cut down on. 

Let’s take the break room for example. Do you offer up free food, or even an entire lunch, for your employees to indulge in? It’s time to remove that option for the sake of your business’ future! Explain this in a memo or a group meeting, and look to other places where your employees won’t directly suffer as a result of your need to save money. Even take suggestions if people have them. 

Maybe you're giving away too many free products or services with your social media giveaways or radio advertisements. Try and cut down or get your prizes free from 3rd parties in return for the brand exposure they'll get!
