Kevin Gardner Dec 4, 2019
Every business owner knows that working for themselves comes with its own set of challenges. Luckily, there are several new, as well as tried and true, technologies that can help to make running a small business a little easier. Take a look at these four technologies that can help to improve your small business today!

1. Online Time Card Calculators

One thing all businesses need to keep track of is how many hours their employees put in each week. An example of a new technology that can help business owners in this regard is an online time card calculator. With these calculators, employees can put down the hours they have worked, along with how long their breaks were.

2. Virtual Customer Surveys

How can businesses know what customers are looking for or what they already appreciate about a business? The simple answer is by making surveys. Making surveys online is easy and free if you use the right websites. When it comes to making a survey, business owners can skip right to asking the questions they care about most.

3. Website Builders

Even if your business does not operate online, it is still best to have a website for your business. Having an online presence improves a business's online reputation. By having a website, customers can easily find information on the business, such as its location and hours. Making a business is not as complicated as it may seem.

Website Building Tips

Most builders often come with free and paid options. Some of the most popular options for easy-to-use website builders are Wordpress, Weebly, and Wix. Weebly and Wix are famous for their ease of use, as they are drop and drag website builders. With this, website managers can simply click on what they want added to the site (blogs, pictures, videos, etc.)

4. Cloud Storage

Using modern technology is a great way to make things run faster. However, it can sometimes complicate matters. One example of this can happen when a business has many files saved on a computer, then the computer breaks. So, instead of helping, the technology is hurting. When it comes to this specific problem, one technology that can help is the Cloud.

More About Cloud

Cloud, simply speaking, is a space online where people or businesses can save files. If the file can be saved on a computer, it can also be saved on the Cloud. It should be noted that it is best to have a password-protected account on any Cloud-based service. Some of the most popular of these services include Microsoft's One Drive and Google Drive.

In Conclusion

So, there you have it-- four technologies that can help to improve your small business. Once your business gets larger, these technologies can continue to help manage online paperwork, an online reputation, and more! Try these websites the next opportunity you get and see how it impacts your business for the better.
