Gunjan Varma asked

Hi Akshaya, I have a corporate gifting firm since 4 years. I am trying to scale it up and want to automate a few processes. I request you to share your advice on the below points on my mind: 1. what should one look at when finding/ finalizing a business partner 2. what free CRM softwares can be used to capture leads from various social media platforms and emailers and website. Can you share the steps to be taken for this 3. is it a good idea to develop an internal resource for social media or outsource it to an agency? Thanks and regards Gunjan

Hi Gunjan, \nIt's great to hear about your business. Here are my thoughts on your questions -\n1. While finding a business partner look for skills that you currently dont have. Someone who will help take over a responsiblity instead of duplicating what you already excel at.\n2. There are quite a few available in the market, you'll have to explore what suits your requirements and which is comfortable for you to work with. Zoho and Salesforce are the more common ones that you can look at. For capturing leads from the website you can integrate MailChimp. You will have to register on these sites and follow the steps. These are pretty straight forward and easy to implement. \n3. Social Media Management can take up a lot of time. Whether to develop an internal source or outsource it depends primarily on your budgets, the frequency of posting, other online requriements like managing online ads etc. If you find a part time resource definately explore In-house since Outsourced agencies may have a cap on how many posts they'll do daily / weekly etc. \nHope this answers all your queries. All the best with your business :)\nCheers Akshaya

Hi Kavitha, You have experience in multiple things and it should ideally help you in exploring a few options in both Tech and Medical Transcription areas. I'd urge you to update your profile on Sheroes incase you haven't already and explore the opportunities posted for both part time and work from home options. If you are in touch with things in the Tech world great! Else you could explore doing a refresher course too. All the best! Thanks, Akshaya

Ratna asked

Taking a break from career to take care of kids. Will this break of two to three years hit my career or professional growth. i have work experience of ten years in corporate?
25 Feb 2017, 11:32am
Hi Ratna, It's important to give time to kids in their initial years of development. A few of us are privileged enough to do it and good to know that you've chosen mom life over corporate for a few years. In today's situation when companies are changing maternity laws and the workplace is becoming more understanding to women taking a break or opting for flexi time a break of 23 years will not be a major hindrance to your career. You may have to start off again where you left in terms of salary, depending on the responsibilities you've handled. It will also help if you learn a few skills / work on your own (if possible) on things that'll keep you in touch with your industry. All the best and enjoy this phase of motherhood! Cheers Akshaya >

Sreenija asked

I do fabric paintings and hand embroideries. want to turn it into a business so that I can get self employed and help destitute women also to join in my business. Please help me on how to start off.
05 Feb 2017, 09:39pm
Hi Sreenija, Congratulations on your creative pursuit! It's a great thought to be self employed and provide employment to women skilled in the same sector. Your should first aim at publicizing and getting orders for your current setup. In the Online world today its not that difficult so here are a few basic things to get you started - 1. Name for your business? Check Social Media availability before you finalize this name. 2. FB page and Instagram account for the same name. 3. Depending on the city you are in be a part of Women Entreprenuers Groups and FB Groups. 4. Click pictures of the work you've already done and share it online. You may read up on basic social media management. 5. Once you see your business getting traction register it to be in sync with our country's Business Regulations. It will also help you set up your Bank accounts to start accepting payments etc at a later stage. Hope this helps get you started as I have assumed you are just starting off and given you the basic guidelines. All the Best!
