You’ve come across yet ANOTHER post by someone who has hit that 6 or 7-figure mark.
And you don’t get it!
You’re working so hard. You’re putting in so many hours. Why are things not coming together for you?
Well…one reason could be your lack of automation.
Let’s talk what automation is, how it can help you scale, and how to automate your online business!
When you automate your online business you free up your time using technology so that you don’t have to do specific tasks for your business. This, in turn, gives you more time to do things within your business that you actually enjoy.
One example of how you can automate is by accepting online payments. And you can do this through a payment vendor like Stripe or Paypal.
And I know. You hesitate to use those sites because you have to give up a percentage of the payment.
But to that I say… it’s the nature of doing business! Especially if you want to scale, then factoring in those very small percentages is a must-do.
But automating the payment process instead of handling the payments yourself every single time somebody wants to give you money is an excellent way to streamline.
There are also different ways that you can automate with your email platform. A welcome sequence, for instance, can be triggered when somebody gets added to your list.
An abandoned cart sequence should get automatically triggered if somebody does not check out within a certain amount of time.
Having an email platform that allows you to set and forget your email sequences so that you’re not even thinking about sending them out to people on your list is a great way to free up some of your work time to do things you actually ENJOY DOING in your business.
That’s how you scale: You automate your online business!
Take it from a recovering control freak: resisting automated processes as an online business owner only makes it take longer for you to grow.
