Automate Your Work Day – Using Zapier

Automate Your Work Day – Using Zapier

We are spiritual beings and as such, we need space and grace to connect, to create, to receive, to rest, to integrate. In today’s world, it can be so easy to get caught up in the seemingly thousands of things you have to do. Time is your most precious asset. It is something you can never replace. Create more space in your day by making your tech work for you whilst you take some time out or focus on another part of your business.

Introducing Zapier

Zapier is a platform that enables you to connect many of the apps that you use every day to make automation easier for busy people like us. Zapier helps you to automate all of those little tasks that suck the time out of your day, so you can get back to doing your thing.

The program Zapier has a FREE version and also a paid version. The free version is a really handy place to get started and helps to automate the basic tasks in your business. The paid version opens up a much wider range of connections. I suggest starting with the free version and upgrading if you need to and like using the platform.

Some of my favourite programs that are available for automation within Zapier include:

  • MailChimp
  • Twitter
  • Google Calendar
  • Trello
  • Facebook Pages
  • Google Drive
  • Instagram
  • ActiveCampaign
  • Asana
  • HubSpot
  • Dropbox
  • ClickFunnels

And the list goes on! You can view a full list of apps here: https://zapier.com/apps

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  18. Mitchell Heinemeyer

    of course like your website but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I will definitely come back again.

  19. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers
