What are some of your biggest overhead costs? I know for some companies the biggest overhead cost seems to be licenses. Others spend quite a bit on advertising, insurance, and of course their employees. I know the company I work for pours a lot into advertising.

For our company some of the biggest overhead costs are advertising and insurance. It's a pretty big company so I'm sure they might have a few more items to add to that.

I think for our company, it's the employees. We have a lot of people working for the company and that has to be a huge overhead just paying everybody. I know their advertising has gone down because they are doing a lot more free on social media.

For our company it is the same thing. Our advertising budget has gone down as well because we are using free methods with social media.

The biggest pain for me is advertising.  I especially hate it when I get nothing in return for it.  It always seems to happen at the worst times also.

Thanks for sharing Dchase. I could really see how those two things would be pretty high.

I could see how that would be a lot of overhead, especially the more you grow and expand.

It really is good to hear that advertising budgets are going down. I know a lot less people are doing the phone book any more.

I thought it might be nice to share a few videos on how to get your overhead under control.

This is a great video that shows you how to make yourself aware of your monthly overhead costs. It is all about income vs expenses.
