What to Automate in Your Organic Business ModelFeb 19, 2022
An organic business model makes sense right now. But you can still use automation to enhance your business without taking YOU out of the important marketing and sales process. In this blog post, I go over why you want to automate and some things you should automate.
First, let's take a look at some of the reasons why you want to automate.
Automation boosts efficiency. It allows you to get more done faster, both saving you time and energy and enhancing your customer experience. This allows you to spend more time with clients and grow your business. Your time is valuable, so using your time efficiently and effectively can be accomplished through automation.
Life Cycle Marketing
Automation allows you to market to your audience, prospects, and clients in a way that is ongoing but focused on their specific wants and needs. It allows you to attract new leads, as well as nurture existing leads, refine your message to them, and create the know, like, and trust that is vital to getting the sale. It also allows you to nurture existing relationships with both prospects and clients, keep them up-to-date on all the ways you can help them, and add value along the way.
One of the ways to hone your message, give them what they want and make more sales is to collect data and get feedback. Automation allows you to do these things through polls, questionnaires, and other methods. And this allows you to refine your message and give them an even better experience so that they see you as their go-to person for the problem they have.
Stay Top of Mind
To get sales when your audience is ready you need to stay top of mind. Automation helps you do this through consistent communication that puts you in front of them and reminds them of how you can help them solve a problem or achieve a goal. If you are not consistent and they need help, they will go with who is top of mind for them at that time. So, don't be discouraged if people are not currently buying, because if you do this part properly when they are ready, you will be top of mind!

Invoicing and Billing
This task can be tedious, but it does not need to be. You can automate your invoicing, making collecting payments easy.

You may still need to step in, but the initial process to collect payments can be systematized through automation.
