5 valuable benefits of using Zapier to automate your business workflowsYvonne Hemmings
One of the best things about Zapier the automation platform is that you can literally automate any business process. There are so many benefits of using automation but we believe there are 5 valuable benefits to using Zapier to automate business processes.
But, before we cover these 5 benefits, we want to ask you these questions …
- How many hours do you work?
- How many holidays do you have?
- How much time are you spending working IN your business on manual admin tasks?
- Are things slipping through the cracks?
- Do you have your workflows mapped out?
- Does it take forever to onboard a new client
- Are you working ridiculous hours just to keep on top of everything?
We bet you’ve had a bit of a shock when you realise how inefficient your business is and we can almost guarantee you will be working far more hours than you need to.
That’s where Zapier comes in, working like magic in the background taking care of the stuff that you shouldn’t be doing.
Here’s what we consider to be the top 5 benefits to your business if you start using Zapier to automate your business …
Zapier WILL save you time
Even if you love your work, working all hours is not sustainable if you want to increase your income. BUT, if you automate your business, you’ll be able to supercharge your income.
For example manually entering data from one app to another is just not efficient. Zapier steps in and connects these apps like glue, automatically passing data from one to another saving you loads of time.
We saved Spacious Coaching over 12 hours and £3000 every time they run a training course just by connecting and streamlining their apps and processes. As a result they’ve increased their earning potential, have more time to spend nurturing clients and have achieved a substantial increase in profits. You can read what we did to save them time here.
You WILL increase your earning potential and have a scalable business
Let’s face it wearing all the hats in your business is not a good use of your time. So answer these 3 questions …
- What would you do with an extra 3 hours a week?
- What would you do with an extra 2 days a month?
- What would you do with an extra 24 days a year?
That’s just an example of the extra time you could free up by using Zapier. That free time means you can work ON your business doing the revenue generating stuff. Not only will you increase your earning potential you will have the foundations and systems in place to successfully scale your business.
Your customer journey WILL be simplified
You wouldn’t be on your own if you didn’t know exactly what was involved from a client making that initial contact to becoming a paying client. But, don’t worry if you use Zapier your processes can be set up to trigger various tasks all on the click of a button. Your onboarding process will be more efficient and streamlined, your brand will be consistent and even better still you’ll be free to nurture your clients journey, meaning you’ll get better testimonials and more repeat business.
Zapier replaces manual admin
We can almost guarantee you hadn’t realised how much manual admin you’d signed up for when you started your business. We know, because initially we also didn’t realise the extent of what was needed to run a business so we’ve experienced the same admin headache too.
The great news is that any process in your business that is consistently the same and doesn’t need changing can usually be automated. So if you’re routinely transferring data from one spreadsheet to another for example, Zapier can do this for you.
