Getting Support For Your Business Onsite & Offsite

Getting Support For Your Business Onsite & Offsite

Have you heard the term Personal Concierge & Virtual Assistant?

These people can help you manage your business both off site and on site without costing you a fortune.

Sarah owns and operates her own business Tick That Box a Personal Concierge service where she helps you with tasks from grocery shopping to on site office support for small businesses.

Say for instance you have your Receptionist or Office Manager going on leave so you are needing a temp to fill the spot temporarilly, but you’re not too enthused about going through a temp agency who would more thank likely charge you a percantage to source you a temp. Here’s your other option ‘Sarah’. She will come to your office and help fill in for that person.

Tick That Box can help you with not only tasks for you business but personal tasks too.

Here’s how Sarah can help you.If you are not necessarily needing onsite support and you are happy to communicate with someone over phone, email and Skype then a Virtual Assistant may be the solution you need. This is where we come in at TLB Admin Support. Where Sarah offers you onsite support we take care of the offsite support, not to mention we both offer different services. Because we work from our own premises you can save on overheads if you are not necessarily needing an office space.

We help small businesses with projects such as website design, social media services, animated videos, admin support and just general customer service. If you have a task you need completing and it involves a computer more often than not we can help you.

As you can see it’s never been easier to get support for your business, we’re only a phone call away!

We will also have a booth at the Wanneroo Business Expo, so make sure to come down and say hi.

Do you have a separate number for your business?

Do you have a separate number for your business?

Well I finally took the leap and got myself a separate phone number for my business for 2 reasons.

When I first started my business nearly 4 years ago I thought it would be easier to just use my mobile for both my personal and business calls, now nearly 4 years on I’m regretting that. On almost a daily basis I am getting scam calls and the sad fact is there is nothing I can do as my phone number is public on the internet. It’s on my website, free advertising sites EVERYWHERE! I now have the pain staking task of removing my mobile number from everywhere and replacing it with the new one.

The second reason is I want my business to be portrayed as more professional. When clients ring my mobile there is no way for me to tell that it’s a client, a lead or anything to do with business. Which leads to me sometimes answering the phone somewhat unprofessionally and casual.

So my question to you is – do you have a separate number for your business? How do you handle your business calls?

I was trying to find a way that I could have a landline number but having the ability to access it easily and not be tied to my computer or home. I found that Skype was the answer for me. I already have the app on my phone and have the program on my computer and use it anyway so why not get a skype landline number through them too, and their subscription plans were quite reasonable. I will now be able to have my mobile for personal and still answer from my mobile but for my business, and I can now start to SMS my clients from the new number too.

If you are looking for a solution to handling your business calls maybe take a look at Skype, it might be the answer you’re looking for too.

Screen Recording, Online Tutorials & Quizzes Made Easy

Screen Recording, Online Tutorials & Quizzes Made Easy

I’ve noticed the question being asked a number of times in groups on Facebook recently with people asking what software to use to record tutorials or even just their screen. Well I have been using the perfect program, Active Presenter!

Active Presenter is a free program you can download but it allows you to do so much.

 

 

It can be used for;

  • Smart Screen Capture – when you click the mouse each action is captured in a slide.
  • Full Screen Recording – this is perfect if creating an online tutorial. You can add voice overs, annotations, captions and special effects.
  • Voice Recording – while you are recording your screen you can also explain to your audience the process and record your own voice.
  • They have just added a new feature ‘webcam recording’ where you can record your screen and web cam at the same time.
  • You don’t need to have another program to edit your audio and video you can do this all from directly in Active Presenter
  • Make your presentations in line with your branding with colours and style effects.
  • You can export your video in multiple formats including the most popular MP4, AVI, WMV.
  • ‘New Feature’ – design your quizzes and e-learning in a fully responsive design which is adaptable for tablet, phone and PC.
  • It has that perfect interactive element, so you can make quizzes and e-learning to teach your audience.

Personally I don’t think you will find another Free program that will give you so many great features and is user friendly. These are only a few of the features to get a full understanding of the program or to download a copy or check out some demos that others have created with Active Presenter you can follow this link – https://atomisystems.com/activepresenter
