WHAT WE DO


REDUCE YOUR ADMIN WORK

Let’s automate your processes. By reducing duplicate admin tasks and streamlining your business, you will have the time and energy to focus on what really matters.

IMPROVE FOLLOW UP

No more emails falling through the cracks. No more forgetting to contact clients. We’ll put software and systems in place to keep you organized and on top of communication.

LOWER STRESS LEVELS

Being organized means you can find files and email quickly and easily. And if a client requests a document, you’ll know right where it is! Say good-bye to recreating documents and scrambling to find an invoice.

INCREASE TIME

When your digital devices are in sync and your software is mobile (accessible anywhere there’s WiFi), you have more time to focus on clients, make sales, and grow important relationships.

PROVIDE SUPPORT

Tech can be overwhelming and aggravating, but you don't have to do it alone. We are here to encourage, guide and coach you through processes that will help you build a more successful business.

OPTIMIZE YOUR LIFE

At Ilios Digital, we partner with you to find the right tool, for the right task, at the right time. Having the right kind of program or software, and knowing how to use it, will be the difference between “getting by” and getting ahead in your business.

Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless. – Thomas Edison

What people are saying

  • Thank you sooooo much for your help with my email! It was just the push I needed, and your approach was so simple that I had literally finalized my email organization by Fri.
    My inbox is EMPTY and I’m using my Action folders religiously now ☺ Of course, I have more emails to sort through, but it feels so good to have an organizational system moving forward. Thanks again!

  • I finally feel like I can get a handle on my emails. With everything falling into my main email I get overwhelmed and I know emails get missed and that is not a good business practice!!
    I really appreciate your time, clear information, and follow up email with instruction about what you taught me in case i forget :), your patience in teaching me how to manage it on my own and knowing you are just a phone call or email away if I get stuck!!!! I am actually looking forward to tackling my emails!

  • April was a great find and help just when I needed it!
    I was going crazy with the details of starting my own business. [April] listened to my immediate and long term needs for my business and jumped right in to help me regain my sanity. April was calm when I needed it and excited and energized when I was down. It was a great help to have someone detail oriented to work with me.

Tech to Go

What’s in Your Bag?

We carry all sorts of things in our purses. Gum, chapstick, wallet, Matchbox cars, old receipts, Tylenol, you get the picture. Your phone is another essential item, but do you keep any other tech gadgets in your bag?  Any items you consider a ‘must have’? As a tech type of girl, I tend to carry a few essentials with me that the average person might not consider, especially in my work bag or when I’m using my computer. So what do I consider essential? Let’s start small.

Creating a minimalist workspace

 

In a recent post on Unclutterer Leo Babauta of Zen Habits  has some great advice for minimalism for those of us with a stationary office.  But what about those of us with a mobile office? Or those who regularly use a co-working space to conduct business? You can still apply these principles, with just a little tweaking.
So how do you maintain a minimalist workspace?

Keeping your contacts safe

Everyone knows I’m all about backing up your data. But have you backed up your contacts lately?
Your contact list is a highly valued item for an entrepreneur. The first step to being organized is to make sure that all of your contacts are in one place – or attached to one ‘account’. This step includes making sure that contacts, especially new contacts, aren’t being saved to your phone but rather that cloud based account.

 

Once you are organized, you can back up your contacts. If you are using Gmail, Hotmail/Outlook.com,  or Apple Contacts, there should be a menu option that says ‘export’ or ‘export contacts’. Choose to export them in a CSV file.

 

Now that you’ve got the CSV file exported to a safe place (the cloud or as part of your online backup), it’s time to rename it. Most files come as contacts.csv which means nothing when you’re looking for a specific backup. Instead, rename the file with the date and ‘Contacts Backup’. Finally, make sure the file is included in your online backup. Depending on how often you add contacts to your list, backing them up doesn’t need to be more than a quarterly or twice a year task.

 

Having a CSV file of your contacts can come in handy when it’s time to import contacts to a new CRM, mailing service, or other software!
