If your central heating breaks down, do you try to fix it yourself or do you call in the experts?

Well, you might try to fix it yourself but unless you know what you’re doing then chances are you’ll end up having to call in the experts to solve the problem anyway and all you’ll have done is wasted your precious time trying to shortcut the problem.

The same goes for your admin. Yes, you CAN do all of your business admin, but SHOULD you be the one doing your admin?

Your clients pay you to do what you do best and our clients pay us to do what we do best….making them look super-duper efficient!  We support clients with services that are applicable to their business.  Myself, as The Admin Doctor, will always have a consultation with a potential new client to diagnose the problems in their business that are causing them pain.

Because The Admin Doctor specialises in supporting the People Development Profession, a lot of what we do for clients is diary management, travel arrangements, hotel accommodation, PowerPoint presentations, report/note typing, event management and delegate liaison.  However, we also provide other added-value services but each client’s requirements are different therefore we avoid a one-size-fits-all approach.

When it comes to your business dealings it makes sense to play to your strengths. Concentrate on the fee earning elements of your business that will make you prosper and outsource your non-fee-earning tasks to The Admin Doctor.

Look at it this way.  How much is an hour of your time worth?  So, for example, if your charge-out rate is £100 an hour, for every hour you spend on your admin, you’ve cost your business £100.

Do you even know how much time you spend on your admin?  As an example, let’s say you spend 5 hours a month on your admin-related tasks, e.g. making appointments, chasing outstanding invoice payments, travel arrangements, sourcing venues for training courses, delegate handout packs, etc.  That’s £500 each month in lost revenue, because you’re not out there fee-earning or prospecting.  Take that over a 12 month period, that’s £6,000 in lost revenue.  Can you really afford to be losing that kind of money year in, year out?  Imagine what you could do with that extra cash in your business. 

By working with The Admin Doctor, we can cure you of your admin headaches and free up your valuable time, so that you can make your business more profitable.  Pick up the phone and ring me on 07855 746777 to book your complimentary consultation.

Remember – just because you can do your admin, doesn’t mean you should do your admin!
