How to Keep Your Business Running While on Vacation

Posted on February 27, 2015

Spring is coming and that means Spring getaways. And of course, this means getaways for small business owners too.

But when it comes to getting away, many business owners stress themselves over the small details that will keep their business running while they’re away. Luckily, in today’s digital age, there’s no need to fret.

Below, we’ll discuss some of the details that can keep your business moving in the right direction, all while allowing you to enjoy the short vacation you can spend away from the office just once or twice each year.

3 Resources You Can Use While You’re Out of the Office 

It’s common for business owners to believe that their business simply can’t keep running without them. However, they’re wrong.

In fact, there are three simple, affordable resources you can turn to that ensures your customers are taken care of without you having to be on-call 24/7. These resources include:

  • A Call Answering Service – While you’re away, you can’t be expected to be on-call 24 hours per day (even when you are at work staying available at all hours is simply impossible). But with a call answering service, you can ensure customers will always be able to speak with a live person who will then relay their message on to employees at your office.
  • Outsourced Email Replies – If your business is like countless others, you receive the same questions via email multiple times per day. By creating responses to these common questions, you can outsource and hire a virtual assistance to send your pre-approved replies to clients. This means that you’ll receive only unique or urgent messages, significantly cutting down on the time you have to spend working while on vacation.
  • Hire a Virtual Assistant – In addition to answering emails, a virtual assistant can support your staff on your website, fulfill orders, or take care of other basic tasks your business demands every single day to remain operational.

Preparing to Go on Vacation Matters When it Comes to Enjoying Yourself 

When you take time away from the office, it’s important to spend as much time away as possible. That’s why when it comes to taking advantage of simple, technological resources, it’s always best to do so.
