If you run your own online business, then keeping on top of the financial side of thigs can be easy to ignore, and then when it comes to the end of the financial year you can find yourself underneath a mountain of paperwork.
Here are some reasons why should regularly carry out an external audit your online business;
Honest looks into your business
You can’t audit your own work without having a definite conflict of interest. By providing an independent and unbiased view, an independent external audit adds value to your organisation.
If you’re making changes to your website, you won’t be able to understand how successful they have been unless you know your baseline metrics. You need to be recording these metrics on a regular basis so you can identify the impact of a particular change.
You can identify recommendations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your current processes. In turn, allowing your organisation to be dependent on process, rather than people.
If you’ve recently added new products or changed a service offering somehow, you need to make sure you check that the content is accurate. It’s not going to look good if a user views one price on the website but has to pay another.
Intelligent insight and smart feedback.
