What can a business minder do for my business?
Apart from minding your team whilst you are away we can work on special projects such as your sales and marketing strategy, training your sales team, developing your style guide, reviewing your business plan and making improvements, develop a pricing matrix, developing a transition to retirement plan, manage and support your team, run your management meetings, take minutes, improve proposals and other documentation.
A business minder works actively within your business for a short time but makes a big impact on the business bottom line.
My sale team are not performing, and I am not sure what the problem is?
Your Business minder will attend your sales meetings and provide a report on why the team are not performing. We analyse sales reports, compare to budget, review invoiced revenue to stated sales price, set individual KPI’s, chair the meeting to an agenda, take meeting minutes, train sales staff and terminate if required.
When I go on holidays, I don’t really get a break because my phone keeps ringing and my partner gets upset with me. How can you help me overcome this?
Your Business Minder can help by offering you our call forwarding service. We take the call and message, make appointments and bookings in your diary, liaise with specified people and keep your business functioning while you enjoy a break.
We also provide minders inside your business to manage the staff. In most cases we are only required onsite for 10-20 hours a week.
Quite often before you go on holidays, we would recommend a restructure allowing specific managers and team leaders a certain level of authority to make decisions on your behalf. This would require new job descriptions and an updated letter of offer or contract. Then we would test the new structure by asking the owner to go away for a long weekend or a short time and see how the team responds.
