Technology Helps Self Employed Professionals Work More Efficiently

Technology Helps Self Employed Professionals Work More Efficiently

As a self employed professional, you realize how difficult it can be to work efficiently. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that you are no longer in a connected office with other people.

While this is a big adjustment, the use of technology can work in your favor. This makes it easier to communicate with others, regardless of location. Furthermore, you can use technology to market your business, secure new clients, and manage your money.

Take for example a service based business that needs to communicate with clients all over the world. Rather than rely on traditional communication tools, such as the telephone, many people are turning to enterprise instant messaging platforms such as Brosix.

Here is another idea: you can use FaceTime on your Mac computer to visually connect with others. Could this come in handy when conducting an interview? How about when you need to meet with a client but neither party has the time to travel?

Self employed professionals are faced with many challenges on a daily basis. If you aren’t taking advantage of technology you are missing out on something special. With each passing day, technology advances and you find yourself in position to implement it in your business.

While you may have avoided this in the past, don’t do so in the future. Your approach may change, and as a result your ability to remain efficient will increase.

What type of technology are you using within your business? How have you found it helpful?

As an online platform, I use Elance and Upwork. The websites are great for freelancers to get work, communicate with their clients, and get paid as well. While it can be expense, it is a great online platform with great technology to help a self-employed individual.

Totally agree, Frank. It may be an expense, but I like to think of it as more of an investment. Great ideas!
