Three Pieces of Software a New Business Needs

Starting a new business requires patience and persistence amongst other things but most of all you need to be passionate about your business idea. When you truly believe in the goal you’re setting out to achieve, then all the hard work and sacrifice will be worth the effort required.

Nowadays though, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to software and although the abundance of technology available to new businesses doesn’t negate the hard work needed for success, it does make keeping your new business on the right track just that little bit easier.

Stay Safe Online with Antivirus Software
Regardless of your industry, if you’re looking to start a new business in 2020 then ensuring that your IT systems are secure from the very start is fundamental to your success.

The threat to the security of your business comes in all shapes and sizes, and includes Malware (derived from the combination of ‘malicious’ and ‘software’), Ransomware (aimed at extorting money from businesses via locking down IT systems and Spyware (hidden within your computer to gain access to confidential information).

Due to the variety of online security threats, it’s important to consider specialists such as when starting a new business for more information on the most suitable protection for your requirements.

Manage Online Presence with Hootsuite
Hootsuite scheduling makes it easier to share your message with your followers with automation. Social media marketing has a big part to play for new business and it’s one of the fastest channels for the growth of any new business. It can, however, take up hours of time just being active on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Preparing, planning and scheduling posts for social media accounts using Hootsuite reduces the amount of time needed to grow the presence of your brand online, a massive timesaver for a new business.

Delve into Data with Google Search Console
Bear in mind that the absolute cheapest way to get leads into a new business is via organic search so taking time to make sure your website is performing well is crucial to the success of your new business.

Google Search Console is completely free and offers a wealth of useful information including keyword data and data on the demographics of the visitors to your site. Gaining a deeper understanding of Google Search Console will allow you to develop a better understanding of your clients and customers and present the information they need to see. An essential piece of software to master for any new business.

If you’re looking to start a business in 2020, then there are endless software options out there geared solely towards making your life easier. Keeping your business protected online is a basic requirement and shouldn’t be ignored. Once this need is met, you should then branch out and look into software designed to spare your valuable time. A priceless asset when on a mission to get your business off to a sensational start.
