We are continually adding new free SOP templates, so be sure to check back often
Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) templates are extremely useful, as they guide you, step-by-step through a routine, repeatable process.
They can help you run your business more efficiently, as well as make it simple to delegate tasks. This will free up your time to work on higher level activities, rather than mundane work.
The Flowster Marketplace contains many free SOPs that will help you streamline and grow your business. Some of these include:
General Marketing and Advertising SOPs
Social Media Specific SOPs
SEO Specific SOPs
Amazon Seller SOPs
Why are Standard Operating Procedures important?
If you don’t currently use SOPs in your business, you may be unsure as to why you should spend the time and effort implementing them. Well, there’s actually numerous benefits!
They enforce consistency
By documenting a recurring process, step-by-step, and having employees follow it, it doesn’t matter if Jill or Bob are doing the work. It’ll always be done the same way, every time. Companies that use procedure documentation templates notice improved consistency and quality with their products and services.
They save money
Related to the consistency benefit, a standard operating procedure checklist streamlines a set of tasks, so that the overall job is always done right. This saves time, which saves money for your business.
They enforce accountability
By having a system like Flowster managing your SOPs, you have transparency and an audit trail into everything that your employees work on. You can see exactly how long it took various tasks to be completed, who did the work, and even be automatically notified by email when it’s done. This improves efficiency!
They improve communication
When following an SOP in Flowster, your team members can assign each other tasks, and add comments or attachments to the work they’ve done. This keeps everyone in the loop and your business running as a well-oiled machine 🙂
