The Many Benefits of a Well Organized Office

The benefits of a well organized office, whether it be a home office, small company office or a corporate office cannot be overstated. The most obvious benefits are functionality, productivity and efficiency.

Organized Home Office Work Space

You are able to find everything when you need it, thereby able to service your clients or customers quickly and efficiently, and people like that. They don’t want to hear that you can’t find their paperwork or whatnot. People don’t like excuses. 

Another benefit of a well organized office is less stress. Put simply, you know where stuff is. Your files are where they should be. Your computer is also organized so you can easily and quickly find documents and images. And I think we can agree less stress in our lives is a huge plus.

As a professional organizer and organizing service here in Bergen County NJ since 2009, we’ve had plenty of experience helping clients get their offices and work spaces optimally organized, decluttered and in excellent working order. We set up a system that you can easily stick with and stay organized with for the long term. 

Here are just a few of the ways we help you:

  • Declutter, sort and shred everything you are not using, haven’t used in a long time, don’t want or don’t need
  • Establish an efficient filing system – since we are in the digital age, mountains of paper files are no longer necessary to have around
  • Organize your digital and cloud based filing areas – keep less files on your actual hard drive, more on the cloud. Hard drives die. 
  • Declutter your desktop. Keep the necessary tools you use and get rid of the rest. 
  • Declutter and organize your filing and supply drawers or cabinets. 
  • Create inboxes that make sense especially if you work with other people.
  • Sort through your mail on a regular basis to avoid the dreaded PILE
  • Rearrange your office furniture for a more relaxing, realigned and functional way to work. This encourages productivity. Productivity is good. 
  • Create zones for different tasks. The creation of work space zones also encourages productivity which means you get more stuff done and move on.

Your Website is Costing You Hundreds of Dollars in Sales

Whether you are an attorney, small law firm, online retailer, or a small business providing goods or services to your customer base, the very idea that your website is costing you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in sales is quite the scary thought.

Many people think that their website is simply a set it and forget it tool. They couldn’t be more wrong.

ANY business owner worth their salt takes the time with their web designer or marketing agency to be constantly adding to their website, either visually with pictures or blog posts, tweaking the content, keeping their eye on their competition and implementing new offerings and features.

And ANY business owner who is truly interested in their business will spend most of their time actually running their business, not playing with a website builder with limited functionality, no interactive features and cookie cutter design. Business owners who try to cut corners with a cheap website builder end up with a less than stellar website full of broken code and no curb appeal by which to gain new clients.

Constant evaluation of what your business offers will also prompt you, the small business owner, to diversify your offerings. WHY? To keep up with trends, competitors, to get ahead, to put yourself in a valuable niche with your customer base. This helps you add to your customer base. Which means you are making more money. Instead of losing money.

Why is constant interaction with your small business website important? Adding new product, new pictures, new content, new offerings, and new blog posts keeps your website fresh both for potential and current clients / customers and also for search engines like Google.

Consistent activity on social media – be it every day or once a week – is very important as well. The key to social media is CONSISTENCY. Being consistent, posting and sharing on a regular basis gives your audience a reason to look forward to your activity and therefore be in the know of what’s going on with your company.

Considering your website to be a set it and forget it tool will cause it, and your customer base, to wither and die. Much like a business that refuses to diversify it’s offerings, that business has absolutely no back up to lean on when the main offering dries up.

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to make thousands of dollars and grow your business. But you do have to put into your business in order to get what you expect out of it.
