Smallbiztechnology.com’s own Ramon Ray offers a few tips on how small businesses can better harness technology in a radio interview with Barbara Weltman on Build Your Business Radio. For example, Ray emphasizes mobile technology and cloud computing as ways to be more productive and to jump into the 21st century.
Ray also encourages small business owners to take a step back and to evaluate what they know versus what they don’t know about technology. With things changing so much, we can’t possibly know everything. Take the time to figure out what you don’t know, and then learn about it. After all, if small business owners don’t take the time to learn and to appreciate it (it’s not going away. Trust us on that one), then learning and embracing technology is that much easier. Weltman and Ray go into developing the right mindset to learn and to appreciate technology.
Ray and Weltman also discuss some of the current technology trends going on right now, and how to keep up with them. Ray offers a few suggestions to keeping up with technology, such as listening to the pain points of your employees, developing a road map of where you want your company to be regarding technology, and engaging in a tech expert or consultant for advice.
