How to Build and Use a Business Budget That’s Useful All Year Long

Budgets are difficult to plan and maintain at the best of times  —  unexpected events, cash flow problems, supply chain issues and more can all reap havoc with even the most thoroughly planned business budgets. The other problem with budgets is that many of us set budgets in our business and personal lives at the beginning of the year, and then file them away until the year-end rolls around once more.

And this is where the problem lies: your business is never static, and your budget shouldn’t be either.

Here are some tips for developing and managing a dynamic budget that can keep you on course all year long.

Stretch Your IT Budget with These 6 Technology Tips
used with permission from HP Small Business Center


For small- and medium-sized companies, the difference between a successful year and a dismal one often comes down to how well they can stick to the b-word: BUDGET.

Luckily, the recipe for budgeting success is simple: spend less, while making more. But there’s a virulent SMB myth that  —  especially in a weak economy  —  the only way to save money is to forgo buying the new computers, servers, and printers that your employees need. Not true.

Below are some simple reasons why investing in technology can actually save you money over the long term.

3 Things You Need to Do When Choosing Technology for Your Business

You want to save money. You want to get more done in less time. And you want technology that just does what it’s supposed to do. Here are three ways you can ensure you’re making the right technology decisions for your business.

Know that “free” often comes at a cost.


The old saying is true: there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Saving money in any way possible is a top priority for most small business owners, but when it comes to choosing technology, it pays to think through the downsides of free solutions before they end up costing your business in the form of frustration and lost productivity. A free software program may have some of the features you need, but getting it to interface with separate business applications can be a huge challenge. “Free” also often means you won’t have access to tech support when something does go wrong, and you’ll be on your own to learn the ins and outs of the technology as well. If you want to ensure you can learn how to use a solution, and get professional help integrating it with other applications and fixing issues when they arise, a sound alternative to free is to pay a reasonable monthly or annual subscription for cloud solutions.

To buy or not to buy
used with permission from HP Technology at Work 

With new technology being released on what seems like a daily basis, it’s understandable that businesses have a hard time keeping up. The next new this and the next new that might seem like a great addition to your business, but how do you know when to immediately embrace new technology or when to wait for the next release?

Often there’s no clear-cut answer. For consumers, adopting a new technology is usually a low-risk behavior. If they buy something they don’t like, they’ll simply replace it with something different during their next purchase. It’s a lot trickier for businesses, though. Rarely do they buy just one product at a time, so their purchases need to benefit the employees and the company as a whole.

Does it make sense to be an early adopter? Here are five questions to ask:
