Office Admin Courses – GREAT example of when to use online forms

Dirty-walls-and-air-conditioning-unit-need-cleaning-or-exit-clean-at-end-of-lease-office-admin-courses

I was looking for quotes for end of lease cleaning recently and started sending emails and Facebook messages when one of the replies I received directed me to their online formvery smart!

Rather than ask me questions and wait for replies and sending 10 messages to find out basic information this cleaning company had it all laid out on their online form.

The best part of this is that I had to do all the data entry work and my details went straight into their database and email system!

Forms, Forms and more Online Forms!

Creating Forms in the Microsoft Word Intermediate course for Microsoft Office admin training courses - EzyLearn

Do forms frustrate you? I’ve come to learn that forms are critical to organise and systemise a business. They’re an orderly way to collect relevant information for the different admin tasks of a business.

Without forms you’ll have a messy filing system or an Inbox that is so full of confusing information that you’ll spend half your time just looking for thing!

Different uses for online forms

checklist for job interview questions for bookkeepers

We use forms for tasks like:

  • Enrolling into an online course
  • Customer feedback
  • Online course enquiries
  • Surveys
  • Free training course samples
  • Requesting a certificate
  • Joining one of our Career Academy services

When you think about forms the concept is pretty simple really – you just use a program like Microsoft Word to create a form and then hand it to your clients to fill in, right? WRONG

Most forms are completed online these days so you need a specialist form builder that enables you to collect the information from anywhere (usually your website).

Online form builder benefits

Using online forms in your business means you don’t need to do the data entry, your customers do. This makes the information accurate and takes away unnecessary work for your staff – and that is called productivity. It also makes it easier to get that information into other software programs used in your business.

Xero became a massively successful bookkeeping program because of the hundreds of software programs that integrate with it. Learn about some of the popular Xero integrations. Integrations enable information to be shared between different software programs.

Using an Online Form Builder enables you to do the same with information that is collected using your form.

Microsoft Forms is an online form builder that enables you to

  • create forms for anything,
  • embed them into your website and then
  • enable support and admin staff to access this information from anywhere.

The Microsoft Forms course is included for free with the Microsoft Office Academy training course package.

Typical Online Form Scenario

A typical use for online forms is:

  1. Collect customer details
  2. Sending the mobile number to an SMS authentication service
  3. Once authenticated, sending those client details to an email marketing system like MailChimp
  4. Have an email sent to an email support ticketing system (like Zendesk)

Have we spoken yet?

Accounting Tutors - online Xero, MYOB, QuickBooks, Microsoft Office Excel, Word training courses - compare airtasker, gumtree, applied education, SpotED

The most rewarding conversations I have is with EzyLearn graduates who’ve completed our courses and then gone on to manage their finances better or get an accounts job. I’ve been speaking to a lot of EzyLearn students lately and there is a consistent theme in most conversations – “what on earth is going on with the price increases for everything“.

I thought that the Covid-19 era was going to be the most challenging period because of all the disruption to our normal lives. I’m not sure if you have discovered the same but one of the best results was that more people started working from home or negotiated partial work from home arrangements with their employer.

The real disruption of The Pandemic is that we are NOW all paying the price of it with inflation and interest rates!

I think I found the perfect job for you

Remote workers can roster support staff for NDIS care workers - NDIS Bookkeeping Courses using Xero and MYOB - EzyLearn

The perfect job is working from home doing office admin one day a week, yes? Most bookkeeping course graduates would agree that this is the perfect client. It means you have up to 4 days available where you can get other ideal clients and it means you work online with no need to travel (or dress up!).

This job is also involved in the growing NDIS sector so you’ll learn some great skills if you haven’t worked in the sector before. You must have experience working as an admin support person and be setup to work effectively from home.

Mail Merging for Water Filter Replacement Reminders using Microsoft Word Advanced Course

Freshflow water filter replacement cartridges for home water filter systems and office water coolers display - Microsoft Office Training Course Case Study

Ever since I have been in business I have been told about the power of “personalised” marketing messages. Back then it was about sending a personalised letter to customers about something they’re interested in or have purchased in the past. I was running a water filter and cooler business and we had retail customers as well as business customers. That’s when I realised the power of a database.

If you are new to any industry people don’t know you and it’s your job to get to know people and build up a database. The most common way to do this is to advertise, get leads and speak to people – but only 3% of people are ready to buy right now so it’s important to stay in touch with them and most people do that with an email marketing system like MailChimp.

If you an existing business with lots of customers but times are quiet you can also use the customer data from your MYOB and Xero accounting file to connect with people.

Who Really Needs Phone Support These Days?

Who wants to wait for phone support for myob and xero course frustrated by waiting on the phone, lady sml

When I first took EzyLearn online in 2007 I was concerned at how much phone support students would need. What I learnt was the better the user experience and course design for our students the less calls we’d get.

Our team have been exploring ways of bringing the cost of our courses down even further in this tough economic environment and one of the biggest cost savings is to focus on SMS, Email and Website Chat support.

We have a number of graduates who are available as tutors and perhaps this could be an option, what do you think?

Micro Courses in Excel, Xero, MYOB from $49, or BUNDLES, COMPLETE Courses and COMBOS

Micro Courses and Stackable Micro Credential by EzyLearn

One of the disciplines I’ve tried to focus on when created online courses in bookkeeping and office admin is to keep the courses short and manageable. When we operated our Sydney training centres we tried to keep class times between 2.5-3 hours because most students can’t concentrate for a whole day.

For the MYOB & Xero Bookkeeping Courses this means that students can enrol into short courses, which are now commonly referred to as Micro Courses that cover very specific skills. We’ve recently changed how we show this information using our Learning Orbs.

Does it feel like you’re knocking your head against a brick wall and not getting job interviews?

ATS match rates for Job Applications for Accounts job requiring MYOB and Xero skills - the Career Academy for Bookkeeping Certificate graduates from Ezylearn

I was speaking with a job seeker recently and she was telling me that she had applied for hundreds of jobs and tried dozens of employment sites but got NO job interviews. I mentioned to her that the employment rate is very low at the moment and that there is a lot of demand so she might do all right if she keeps trying.

What I copped next was flurry of expletives about how the Government is making up lies and that there are no jobs available. This lady continued to bend my ear until I had to excuse myself politely.

The problem that most people have with the Job Application Process is that they’re not practiced at it. There is a method and process to follow when applying for jobs and if you approach it with desperation or you get frustrated you lose sight of how you come across to the employer.

The employer is simply following a process to find the best potential job applicant and they want to make sure they get it right. Need help in the job search and application process? That’s where the Career Academy from EzyLearn come in.

Household Budget using Microsoft Excel Course: Track Interest Rates, Expenses & Income

Learn how to use Microsoft Excel in our Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Excel Training Courses

A household budget can keep you sane in times when major expenses are fluctuating. It is a requirement if you are applying for a housing loan and if you want to borrow to invest in an online business but it can also show you very clearly if you need to find new sources of income or get rid of some expenses.

If you have found yourself subscribed to too many online streaming services or software programs that you just don’t need or use your budget can help you identify those expenses.

Same goes with debt repayments for phones, household items or motor vehicles.

There are two budget templates in the Microsoft Excel Intermediate Training Course – one for your personal income and expenses and one for starting a small business.

Microsoft Excel & Xero Bookkeeping COMPLETE Training Course Package is Now Here

Training Course ad in Manly Daily for Microsoft Excel, Website Design, MYOB - Ezylearn

You may be asking WHY it has taken us so long to create this training course COMBINATION package considering that Xero and Excel go hand in hand for all things financial and accounting?!

Xero is fantastic for keeping track of all of your financial transactions for a business and Microsoft Excel is still the preferred choice by most bookkeepers and accountants for producing reports and working with the data that comes out of Xero.

The versatility of Excel as a spreadsheet means that you can do so much more with it than just make sense of the financial information from your Accounting software. One case study in our Microsoft Excel Courses comes from our own experience about scheduling courses, trainers and training rooms for enrolments when we had a training centre in Dee Why NSW.

What % of expenses can you claim to reduce your taxable income?

Working from home and claiming expenses using Xero & MYOB software training courses

We’ve received lots of training course inquiries from new business in this last couple of months and a question that came up recently was “do you have a course that explains how much I can claim”. The person was asking about how much of the cost of their car can they claim as an expense because they use it for their business.

The answer to this question reminded me of how “flexible” the taxation laws are in Australia. You can “claim” any amount that you want and unless you are audited by the ATO you could possibly get away with it!!

The correct way is to determine how much of your costs are actually associated with your business and use that percentage. The ATO goes on to explain how to do this in detail.
