Have you ever been immobilized by indecision? Dithered for ages over which bank to place your savings in, ‘ummed’ and ‘ahhed’ over which film to watch or music to listen to, wavered over which item of clothing to buy, only to falter even more when confronted with the vast abundance of clothing choice that’s available online once your unlock your phone or open your laptop?
Whilst competition amongst banks and clothing brands and even artists is necessary (not least because it spices things up a bit!), and we’re all for the freedom of choice here at Creative Analysis- we’re especially big fans of Business Freedom- sometimes there is just too much choice these days. Too much to choose from can actually be counterproductive.
Online tools and systems are what we’re all about at Creative Analysis and we particularly enjoy how they have the power to break down barriers and help the many talented, creative and driven individuals and small teams out there get their small enterprises online and magnify their message, promote their product/service and reach the right customers.
But wouldn’t it be nicer, quicker, easier and simpler to have all your business eggs in one basket?
Right now you might use say, Buffer for your social media scheduling, MailChimp for your email marketing campaigns, WordPress, an accounting system, project management platform and the list goes on. If the multiple tabs you have open on your laptop and several login details you have to remember aren’t enough of an initial stress, getting your different systems to integrate and talk to one another, an ability you originally thought was genius, proves to be even trickier.
Mastering lots of different online software is challenging when operating online doesn’t come naturally to you and when you ring customer services for help, not only are you likely to have to wait for ages on hold only to be past form pillar to post, but you’ll have to ring several other customer help teams to get assistance and advice on how to use the other online sales and marketing systems your business uses.
If one system updates, the other integrated software are no longer compatible and if you want to enhance your methods of marketing, sales and reaching clients, it’s more expensive as you have to upgrade your systems across the board. In short: Grrrrr an all round nightmare!
Can you relate? If you can, wouldn’t it be easier to take the best bits of each of the systems you use and keep all your online business software under one trusty umbrella?
