🟣 What are the benefits of automating your processes with Make?

Hey Makers :wave:

I often get asked by friends and family about what Make does and how it could be useful for them. It can be tricky to explain. I mean it’s like having a magic wand that simplifies your life!
That’s why I created this post to share some general benefits of automation.

Automating repetitive mundane tasks brings such joy to life!

With automation, you can forget about repetitive chores and make room for the things that matter.

Besides saving your time, money, and energy, automation can:

:art: give you the chance to focus on creative and more complex projects
:brain: allow you to say goodbye to copy-pasting activities and feel more productive
:rocket: increase efficiency of your processes that can get completed in a shorter time
:100: improve the accuracy of your workflows, eliminating human error

When you’re on the lookout for tasks to automate, keep an eye out for the ones that:

  • are tedious and time-consuming
  • require too many mouse-clicks
  • have a high risk of human error
  • happen on a regular basis
  • involve a series of predictable steps

In your personal life, there are tons of opportunities to automate mundane tasks that have the potential to wear you out.

:briefcase: Looking for a new job? - Get instant notifications about new job opportunities you might love.
:milk_glass: Struggling to stay hydrated? - Send yourself personalized reminders to grab a glass of water.
:date: Need to get organized? - Sync your productivity app & your calendar to never miss a deadline.

With business processes, the sky’s the limit when it comes to automation, including:

:mega: Marketing: blasting out email campaigns or scheduling social media posts,
:handshake: Sales: capturing leads, making initial contact, and following up with potential customers.
:busts_in_silhouette: HR: making the employee onboarding process smoother and gathering employee feedback.

It would be a shame to let repetitive tasks hold you back. Essentially, automation’s here to do the heavy lifting so you can focus on the fun stuff.
