Budget Is Tight? Which should you buy? Smartphone or Laptop? When you run a home based business, you wind up doing just about everything by yourself. In order to remain efficient and keep your company running smoothly, you need the proper tools. These days, small business budgets can be so tight that you have to make decisions that can make or break your business. When writing your business plan and budget you sometimes need to pick and choose where to spend your money! If you are ever forced to choose between a smartphone or a laptop, there are a few questions you should ask yourself to help you make that decision. Functionality Of Laptop VS SmartPhone A laptop is nice because it has the full keyboard, the hard drive and the capacity to hold a lot of documents.

A smartphone can be carried in a protective case that can attach to your belt, or you can just put it in your pocket. While laptops have become very innovative with their designs, the smartphone remains a much more portable solution. Added Home Business Features A Smartphones also double as digital cameras, which can be an extremely convenient business tool. Laptops can also be used to capture pictures and videos, but it is much less convenient to try and position a laptop to take a picture or record a video. Deciding exactly which features you will use most in your home business will assist with the decision! Smartphones can also be used to record voice messages and they can be used on a moment's notice to make personal notes and record important information. … [Read More...]
