6 Ways to Make Your Business More Efficient and Keep Your Clients Happy (by showing them you give a DAM)
November 28, 2016
It’s a tough world out there, and with ever changing technology and fast paced working environments it can be easy for businesses, both large and small, to get bogged down in the nitty gritty yet important minutiae of running a business and miss the bigger picture.
Nowadays it’s all about being super-efficient, smart and adaptable while keeping your eye firmly on the ball all at the same time.
Not an easy task for even the most seasoned of entrepreneurs or businesses.
Here are 6 ways to make your business more efficient so your clients will love you even more.
1. Reach out and connect with the world
For the most part, good business is all about good communication, and that’s where Digital Asset Management (DAM) comes in.
The successful running of any business, among other things, is largely down to the smooth flow of information between clients and stakeholders.
Regardless of the size of your organisation, when it comes to data sharing, files sometimes do go astray or get lost in the sea of emails that people now receive on a daily basis, or are simply too large or data sensitive to send by conventional methods.
It’s akin to that large overflowing in-tray we used to see on desks before the paperless digital age resigned them to history.
Thankfully DAM software can effectively streamline and manage this by providing a cloud based secure file sharing solution to enable you to upload, share and approve files and brand assets with both internal and external stakeholders alike.
With Filecamp, you are provided with a user friendly and affordable, Media Asset Management, File Sharing, Media Library, and Online Proofing solution all at the click of a button.
2. Be aware that people want to like you
No really, they do.
Stakeholders, partners and clients alike all want things to go smoothly in business and foster good long term relationships. Whether it is collaborating on a design, sharing files, or online proofing; imagine how much simpler and easier it would be if you could do all this in one place.
Well, now you can.
With Filecamp’s range of intuitive media asset management tools you can effectively motivate clients and stakeholders to become more engaged with your product or project.
You can literally inspire them with your vision.
How amazing is that!
3. Ask yourself; does my brand look big in this?
Custom branding is important when it comes to your DAM system. Think about it; you are literally sharing files while promoting your brand at the same time.
Branded file sharing doesn’t only just help promote your brand; it can also help you unlock further business potential.
At Filecamp we understand that your brand is critical to your business and that’s why we provide you with the opportunity to brand your account. Your clients are provided with a seamless look-and-feel that can be easily integrated with your corporate website.
Customers will experience Filecamp as your business solution, and undoubtedly thank you for it too!
4. Power up your tools
You may have heard the phrase that a good workman never blames his tools (or that a bad workman always does).
Although there is some truth to this, in this day and age good workmanship is also about having the right tools in the first place.
With Filecamp you are not only providing your business and your client’s business with the right tools to be successful – but you are literally powering them up too.
Take for example Filecamp’s online Proofing and Approval features such as pdf annotator where you can invite your clients to make comments and annotations on any artwork. Or Filecamp’s Email URL button file sharing function whereby Filecamp will create an email message to your stakeholders with a link to your branded upload page.
No hassle, no fuss.
No longer do your employees need to use a multitude of transfer tools or dropbox for business to transfer large files leaving you with little control over how or where sensitive data files are being sent.
No longer will clients need to literally jump through hoops to communicate with you.
With Filecamp, everything is in one secure and easily accessible place.
5. Create your own tribe
Tribes are important and have been around for millennia. It is how humankind communicates with the world. But don’t just take our word for it:
“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
― Seth Godin, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us
With Filecamp you are creating your own powerful tribe of employees, clients, partners and other stakeholders.
Filecamp provides you with the proverbial camp fire, a safe place to share your story. An online secure meeting place and easy to use platform where you can meet, collaborate, share ideas and much more, no matter where you are in the world.
Furthermore, Filecamp’s platform is flexible enough to adapt to multiple users and yet sophisticated enough to restrict access where necessary.
Start your own tribe and start effectively communicating today.
6. Roll the barrel
There is a scene in Season One of the hit US TV show Breaking Bad (heralded as perhaps the best TV show ever) when the show’s protagonists break into a warehouse to steal a large barrel of chemical solution.
Because the characters are not ’street smart’, instead of simply rolling the barrel they attempt to carry it, thus making their task considerably more difficult than necessary.
While we would never condone such activity, we quite like the analogy here.
Instead of making your life difficult by uploading and transferring large bulky files, let us help make your life immeasurably easier.
In other words, let us help you roll the barrel.
