When a consumer can purchase a product or a service from a company - they are seeing the final visible end of a much longer road.  There is a process, steps & stages that a product or service must go through in order to be launched out into the world!

It starts with an idea. We generate lots of ideas every day, but finding the RIGHT idea - the most strategic and/or coveted idea is what we are looking to do in the idea generation stage.  Businesses come up with ideas based on a number of different factors: customers, competitors, industry trends, general needs in the market - and many more. The more ideas the better.  Not ever...

There is a reason why the "🎉" emoji is one of our top used emojis internally here at PayHub Payments. The last month was full of some pretty amazing celebrations. We celebrated the 9 year work anniversary of our Operations Manager, we welcomed (very openly) the first day of Spring, we have Get To Know Your Customers Day coming up in April as well as Earth Day! That is just the beginning - can you even imagine all the other well deserved and exciting opportunities that we will be able to celebrate this month?!

Our team is BIG on celebrating.  It is really important to us. Often we can get caught up in the grind. We have to...

Your to-do list is long. Trust us, we can relate. Owning a business, and juggling the rest of life can be overwhelming at times. Most of us have multiple to-do lists. Time and time again we hear about work-life balance.  It's something that everyone tries to practice on a daily basis. It's easy to get caught up in prioritizing our time in being able to cross those to-do's right off the lists, rather than setting aside some time on how to prioritize our priorities better and simplify the daily grind.  

Here at PayHub Payments, we took the time to figure that out.  We set aside our to-do lists for a little while and...

It seems like we are always waiting for the “right time” to do something. Whether to you that means exploring a new business venture, expanding your product line, trying out a new market or partnership, etc. chances are you have put something off because it’s not the right time. Sometimes this is valid, and sometimes it’s just an excuse so we don’t have to focus on it now. The truth is, there isn’t always a right time, but that shouldn’t stop you from going for it. So create your own “right time”. Here are 5 ways to counteract the mindset of there being a right time to go for it and achieve success.

As customers are shifting towards e-commerce preferences, it’s vital to the success of your business that you find unique ways for your business to flourish in a brick and mortar setting. Don’t be trumped by digital competition — focus on the things that online businesses cannot bring to customers in the same way.

Technology is cold and efficient, meaning there isn’t really any room for improvisation. Websites don’t change in the same way an experience changes every time go into a brick and mortar location, and people usually are lead to online shop because they have a particular item in mind they want to purchase. By completing t...

Meetings can be dreaded wastes of time for many businesses. You set out to meet for a specific reason, and that reason does not always get acknowledged or resolved. Here are a few tricks you can implement to make sure meetings go effectively so that you can get back to doing what needs to be done.

1. Have an odd start time.

Make the start time of your meeting an odd time, something like10:37 AM . This creates a greater sense of urgency, as there is no question about when the meeting starts. When you meet at a time like 10:00 AM, people will typically show up a few minutes after the hour, delaying the start and pushing time back for...

As you’ve likely seen by now, it’s the season for new years resolutions. Every year, most people find some sort of goal for themselves that maybe they weren’t able to make time for last year, lost focus of, or gives them the opportunity to try something new. These aren’t just limited to personal endeavors, however — many take this time to vow to make changes in their business. 

Now, we usually laugh and roll our eyes at those claiming to be completely different once the clock strikes midnight, with no effective plan on how they will meet these goals. The trick to maintaining and achieving your new years resolution lies in more tha...

In a landscape where holiday shopping used to be predominately in-store, e-commerce is now winning. Black Friday shoppers are on the decline, opting instead to take up the many online offers from the comfort of their homes instead of camping out early in the morning. Because of this, if you aren’t using an omni-channel method to selling you may be falling behind. Appealing to those who prefer to do their holiday shopping online is important, or else you may alienate this audience.  E-commerce traffic increased yearly by 15%, so it is a visibly growing channel.

This isn’t just limited to computer use, mobile devices are leading the...

The holidays are a time when your business can skyrocket due to customer demand. Are you equipped to grow your sales during this time? Here are a few things you can do to ensure your business will see financial growth during this period.

1. Create a marketing campaign to generate buzz. After all, people won’t buy what they don’t know about, so it’s your job to make sure the word gets out about what you’re offering that others aren’t. You can create a campaign through social media, e-mail, in-store signage, or mailers. You can also give out coupons or promotions in-store to let customers know about future holiday sales to keep them...

We don’t all start in the same place, and don’t have the same advantages. We hear about many entrepreneurs that have created and nurtured their own empires, but it is easy to write that off when you don’t know the climb they went through to get there. Many entrepreneurs have a unique quality that works for their business, many know where their strengths lie, and some just put in the hard work required. Here are just a few entrepreneurs that started from nothing and built their businesses the old fashioned way: from the ground up.

Word of mouth will always remain the most powerful marketing tool, and websites like Yelp just perpetuate word of mouth’s importance, even when it’s from strangers. Yelp is very important for establishing your business as efficient, legitimate, and most importantly, worthwhile. Some may not go to your business’s official website and instead look up its Yelp page since Yelp already has a known reputation as a trusted source for reviews, so making sure your Yelp page is informative, up to date, and professional is important to creating new customer leads.

Why do people like Yelp? Firstly, pretty much everyone uses it or knows of it,...

As data breaches and malware increase globally, it can feel like no company is safe, with even large chain franchises being targeted. While there is always the possibility, it’s as important as ever to make sure your card data is as secure as possible. Some businesses can fall victim to the weaknesses in their card payment systems, and the damage is irreparable. Even if a breach is resolved, many tend to lose trust in your brand. It’s as important as ever to make sure your business has effective security in place to ensure your business doesn’t experience this! 

It is vital to be sure your terminals and technology is updated with...
