What exactly does an Online Business Manager do? To be honest, there are literally hundreds of things that an OBM does that your business could benefit from such as:
OBM’s can set up goals, create schedules, follow up on them to ensure that they get done on time, delegate jobs or tackle minor glitches. Simply put, they make sure that projects are finished on time and done right the first time.
Make the Small Decisions
Owner’s don’t need to worry about routine problems or make the small decisions that could eat away precious time. For example, updating the team about projects or posting reminders may be a task undertaken by the manager. This way, owners can be free to do more important things like obtaining new clients.
Managing the Team
The Online Business Manager can be the team’s main bridge in communication, the one who does the hiring, interviews and other human resources needs.
Managing the Financial Aspect
From revenues to expenses, an Online Business Manager can cover them all and simply present the owner with a summarized version of the financial statement. They could set up budgets for projects, dole out the payments to subcontractors and receive payment from clients.
Of course, these aren’t the only roles undertaken by a Online Business Manager. Simply put, they’re the oil that keeps the machine running smoothly to free up the owner for bigger tasks.
