What can you learn from your competition when it comes to staying ahead of the curve? How can you keep up on tech trends and use them to your advantage to achieve results? Here a few ways:

  1. Stay current on the trends. This doesn’t mean you have get involved in every new trend that comes along – you need to stay true to your business competitive business plan and your business goals – but you don’t want to be one of those people who say, “but that’s the way we have always done it.”
  2. Is there new technology that you can implement into your business practices? For example in my virtual accounting business my staff and I keep up on the new technologies that keep our clients’ financial information secure and help us to use our time efficiently. Over 10 years ago we embraced a paper-free environment as part of our nod to technology and its benefits. Now cloud applications help us and our clients operate more effectively.
  3. Be willing to reinvent yourself. This doesn’t mean you have to toss your current business model out the door, but it does mean you need to do what you have to do to remain competitive in this ever-changing marketplace.

As business owners we need to remain both tech and trend savvy and be willing to investigate and see if those will enhance our business lives and the services we provide our clients.  What can you do to give your business a competitive edge in the market?
