Last week xSellco hosted a live webinar with Skubana CEO Chad Rubin, chock-full of pointers on automating as many aspects of your e-commerce business as possible to free up time to focus on high-value activities that achieve growth.
Here are five standout quotes shared by Chad that will inspire you to take a closer look at your day-to-day operations and introduce tools that can help you do more with less.
How to win in e-commerce: “It’s not just about working harder—it’s about working smarter.”
No time? No excuses: “Time should never be a bottleneck to getting anything done.”
Optimization starts with you: “It’s about looking at yourself first, looking at where you spend the most amount of your time. What do you like doing? What do you hate doing? What are you good at?”
Turn to technology: “When we have a problem that needs to be solved, that’s when we think to ourselves, can we use technology to solve this problem? If we can’t use technology, can we use a freelancer or a virtual assistant from overseas to help us get the ball down the court? It always starts with scratching an itch that we have.”
Learn to let go: “You need to start letting go of what’s on your plate currently to free up some mind space so you can begin to work on some higher value activities. If you’re scared about proprietary information getting out in the world, don’t outsource that task. Save that as a higher value activity for somebody that you trust internally.”
