Top Tips

Would you be able to recover if your business suffered a major incident that affected trading?

Fires, floods, gas explosions, terrorism attacks, theft and sabotage could all cause substantial loss and damage to your business. Assessing the risks and working out how you would respond to a disaster, both short and long term, is key to surviving an incident.

Here are some top tips to help you devise a disaster recovery plan:

1. Back up data regularly and store copies off site in a secure place. Low cost back up options include CD writers or DAT tape recorders. Practise restoring the data in an IT system outside your own to ensure it works.

2. Ensure that important paper documents, such as contracts and employee information, are protected. Make copies and use fire resistant and waterproof storage containers.

3. Keep a list of contact details for your staff, customers and suppliers off site so that you can contact them in the event of an incident. Also keep a list of emergency contacts for staff.

4. Be clear about what your insurance policies cover and what they don’t so that there are no nasty surprises when you subsequently make a claim. Keep copies of the relevant policies off site so that you know immediately what to do in the event of an incident.

5. Review your insurance cover regularly to ensure it keeps pace with any changes in the business.

6. Identify your business critical activities and set out the tasks needed to restore them and resume trading off site. Identify the core resources that support your critical activities and consider how you would source replacements.

7. Have an emergency pack which will include your business recovery plan, as well as a first aid kit, mobile telephone, and masks to protect against fumes and dust.

8. Make an inventory of equipment, materials, products and any other assets to give you an overview of the business. This will make it easier to work out losses and identify gaps in core resources after an incident.

9. Make arrangements for a temporary base – you may not be able to operate out of your existing premises for weeks or even months, depending on the type of disaster. Remember any site must comply with health and safety rules.

10. Test the feasibility of your plan and review it once a year to keep it current. Tasks in the plan should be assigned to designated people. Being organised is a vital part of incident recovery.

In our modern, digital and ever-evolving technological society, the Internet is a vital tool used by millions of people worldwide. Achieving high ranking in a search engine is essential to connect with prospective target markets and thus create a relationship that will entice a vast number of customers to your products or services. The process used to improve your search engine presence is Search Engine Optimisation or SEO. You can find digital marketing experts at business networking events London.

For a search engine to recognise a web page or a website, basic Search Engine Optimisation is required. This is the use of Metatags within your site that describe what it has to offer. However, in order to attract the attention of search engines to your company website, more advanced SEO techniques are also necessary. These techniques include regularly posted blogs or news articles on your site, as well as advanced search engine strategies.

If your business website is not drawing a satisfactory number of customers nor is it performing at the standard you so desire, then SEO is an essential concept you require. By reaching a good search engine ranking, the visibility of your business will be successfully improved and in turn, this will contribute to the very success of your company.
