Reducing costs should always be a priority when running a business.

Little wins add up, so we’ve outlined the 5 EASIEST ways businesses can SAVE on COSTS below.


1. Review your Insurance Policies

Most small businesses can actually negotiate better deal on insurances (public liability, motor vehicle, etc.). As there are over 50 insurers on the market, it’s important to shop around to ensure your coverage is both suitable & competitive. (We were able to reduce our Public Liability Policy costs by half from a simple review).

2. Mobile Phones – Paying More than $25 p/mnth ?

Most businesses are paying between $55-140 p/mnth for each Mobile SIM. In fact this is Telstra/Optus’ most profitable income stream. We can return this cost back to you by giving you access to their (Telstra or Optus) Wholesale Network from $25p/mth.

3. Subscriptions and other recurring costs

Most businesses have unnecessary running subscriptions. It’s worth combing through to see what you can either downgrade or remove.

4. Shop around for your financial services

Financial services can be a significant cost for small businesses, but many don’t realize that shopping around can yield substantial savings. Banks and financial institutions offer various products and rates, so it’s worth comparing options to find the best fit for your business.

5. Enhance Customer Retention and Optimize Phone Services

Losing customers is the most expensive missed opportunity for any business. Activate mobile/PC softphones so your team can answer calls anywhere. If you haven’t switched to the cloud yet, now’s the time with new built for purpose platforms offering the best Cloud connections at the most cost efficient prices.


Avoid the Potential Pitfalls of Reducing Costs

Reducing costs can sometimes have unintended negative consequences for your business. Here are a few examples to consider:

  • Supplier Dependence: Relying too much on a single supplier can put your business at risk if that supplier fails or chooses to work with a competitor.
  • Cutting Marketing: Marketing is often the first to go when budgets are tight. However, reducing or pausing your marketing efforts can significantly decrease your chances of attracting new business.
  • Financial Control: While tighter financial control is crucial, it can leave you with little safety margin if cash flow slows unexpectedly.
  • Short-term Investments: Cutting back on essential investments like staff training, advertising, new equipment, or product development can hinder your business growth and long-term returns.

Before implementing cost-cutting measures, ensure they won’t compromise your standards or negatively impact the products or services you offer.
