1 – Automation of social media posting
Several online services offer you the possibility to better manage your social media pages. With the multiplicity of the number of social media you are targeting, it would take a full-time person to consistently post. That being said, if you use an automation tool, you could plan your posts in advance and therefore save time. As an example of tools that can help in this direction, we can cite: Hootsuite or SproutSocial to make automatic publications.
2-Automation of inventory update
One of the biggest challenges for many companies doing business online is updating the stock on all the platforms they sell on. Indeed, in most cases, if you sell on several platforms at the same time, making sure that the information is updated regularly can avoid losing sales and therefore losing income. In this case, the manual approach can be recommended. However, this would require a huge investment of time. Hence the advantage of automation.
Some tools that can help automate tasks
You don’t need to waste money on refunds all the time because there is no more inventory on any of the sites where you are selling. Therefore Capterra has done a good job compiling a list of Warehouse Management Software. Visit this site to learn more. This type of software ensures communication between your warehouses, your shops, and your external resellers. (Google Merchant, Amazon …)
3 -Automation of payment monitoring with your customers
It can be frustrating and quite a waste of time when you have to call customers to follow up on payments. Even with emails, it would still take almost ten minutes to compose. With a tracking tool, you can schedule automated emails that will remind your customers of their payment deadlines.
4-Automation of the Google Analytics report.
Google Analytics is a tool for collecting statistical data on the activities on your website. Several companies use it as a strategic means to improve their presence on the web. If you generate a report every week, you can, for example, automate the process.
Instead of going into your account and generating a report every month or week, create an automation. This article from Moz explains how to get there easily.
5 – Avoid losing customers who forget to complete the cart.
Several customers may forget to complete the basket and find later that they have not placed their orders. Thus automating this aspect can help in this direction. Depending on the tool you use for your site, you can do this automatically. Indeed, companies such as GoDaddy, and many other e-commerce companies are reassured not to lose any customers. You can use solutions such as Mailchimp to make your job easier.
6 – Employee reports and project management.
Employee reports and project management reports are two very important aspects within a company. Indeed these two aspects alone take at least 25% of working time or even more dependent on each company. So automating these tasks would be very profitable for a company. CRMs such as Zoho, Pipedrive, HubSpot, Freshsales or Monday can help you with this.
You can put in place a set of resources to reduce your workloads while getting a lot done during the day. The list of things to automate is therefore not exhaustive and depends on your industry.
