Small business owners and solopreneurs usually don’t have access to big offices with the latest state-of-the-art tech. Nor do they always have the resources to purchase this tech themselves. So it’s important for owners of small businesses to be judicious when determining which tech they need to invest in, which can be an asset to their company or productivity, and which really isn’t necessary at all. Of course, precisely which devices, apps, software, or gadgets will benefit your company depends somewhat on your particular industry, as well as your niche and circumstances. Nevertheless, there are some tech investments that are likely to pay off for any solopreneur. Read on to see some of the top recommendations.
Financial management and accounting software
This is one investment that is worthwhile for any business owner, whether they are running a business of one, or hiring employees – and even if they are fairly savvy about accounting, on their own.
Software for cybersecurity
While larger companies may hire experts in cybersecurity, smaller businesses, and entrepreneurs can protect themselves from cyberattacks with the help of tech.
Software for marketing
Whether you’re a marketing expert or not, having the right tech for your campaigns will make them far more effective while also reducing time spent on marketing projects.
How to budget for tech investments
Before rushing out and purchasing new business software or other tools, make sure you have a plan to pay for them.
When thinking about which tech to spend on, small business owners should think about whether the investment is likely to make their work easier, reduce their costs, or increase their profits. It can be easy to be beguiled by a fancy marketing campaign that tells you that you need this or that device or application, so before you buy, always think carefully about how this purchase will realistically help your business.
