Week 14 Focus – Automation
Focus Question: What can you automate in your business?
There are many tasks in a small business which can be automated. Automation brings the benefits of scaling, supplication maximizing your resources. Think about these items:
As much as AI (Artificial Intelligence) is feared, it’s also something which can be leveraged to further level the playing field for small business.
Here’s a quick story. Flashback to 2014 and the introduction of offering on-demand video-based programs. Filming, voice over, selecting the graphics could take hours. In 2017, I found Lumen5, a video program which harnesses AI to provide quick creation and rendering of short videos. That platform now enables me to import content I’ve already created (think blog posts and articles) and then have the system convert it to a short video. Total timesaver and a creative tool!
