4 website tricks that will save you hours of time each week
When you start a website, you will usually be overwhelmed when it comes to how many large and small taks there are to perform, and that means you'll want to start outsourcing some of these things and reduce the amount of time you're doing work. When I started out, I did all my own work because I couldn't afford to outsource any of the small tasks I didn't want to do. As soon as I could afford it, I would start to outsource little things and do the rest, but eventually I was able to run a team that did a lot of the work so I didn't have to worry too much about everything getting done
Just using one of the tricks I'll cover below can save you hours of time each week, which adds up if you think about it, and you'll actually make more money because you can focus on more important things like lead generation. Most of the website related tasks that you need to do will get overwhelming the larger your company gets, so you should always look how you can streamline or automate tasks early on so you're ready when you actually have to do it. Think about it, if you save 10 hours a week, that's 10 hours you can focus on building new revenue streams or talking to potential business partners that could help you increase your profits exponentially
In this discussion I'll be covering 4 website tricks to save your hours of time, and those 4 tricks are:
Automating your social media marketing
A lot of people like typing up and manually posting all their social media marketing stuff, but it's not needed since there are nice little tools like Hootsuite, which will automate these tasks. Sure, you'll have to type up all your posts, and place any links within the posts you want to make, but after that you just schedule the post and work on something else. I actually know some successful business owners that type up all their social media posts within the first few days of each month and schedule their posting so they don't have to worry about anything except answering any questions that pop up on the posts
Automating your social media marketing like this won't always reduce the amount of time it takes to produce the posts, but you will save time on the posting since it's automatic. You won't have to log in every day, or week, and post manually to each of your platforms. This means if each post takes you a total of 2 minutes, and you post to 10 platforms regularly, that's 20 minutes a day or 2 hours and 20 minutes each week you're saving.
Using a ticket system instead of managing emails
A ticket system is always better than an email system, unless you're capturing emails for newsletters, but that's about it. A ticket system will help you sort out all the questions being asked and you can even have canned responses as well as related questions already answered where the person asking the new question can likely get the answer.
If you're getting 50 people to your website that want to ask you a question, and 25 of them are finding their own answers through the related questions section, you're saving up a massive amount of time. Think about it, if you have 25 people asking you a question and it takes you around 1 minute to answer, that's just 25 minutes. The thing is, you don't always finish a conversation after just one answer, you'll talk to them 3, 4, 5 even 5 times before they get the answer they want. If you have pre-answered questions in place, you can reduce a 20 minute conversation to a 0 minute conversation, saving you almost 8 hours and 30 minutes.
Hiring freelancers to do various tasks
Freelancers are a great thing to bring on board when you start getting a ton of things on your plate and you don't possibly have the time to finish everything. Right now you could be overwhelmed by all the SEO you have to do, all the content generation that is needed, all the marketing you must do to bring in leads, and all the branding that is required if you want to be the authority within your niche.
You can bring in credible freelancers and literally get your freelancers working for hundreds of combined hours that you could never do I have an SEO company and I bring on SEO freelancers to help out when I need them, not because I can't do the work myself, but because I get too much work and need some help. I also have freelancers that do work for me each week and that saves me an insane amount of time
Bring on some virtual assistants to do remedial tasks
A virtual assistant shouldn't be confused with a freelancer, because one does stuff that helps you a lot with your business and the other does small remedial tasks that just waste your time but need to be done. A VA should be brought on if you need them to delete a lot of things, create small things that take no skill to do, and various other things that would be similar to sweeping a digital businesses floor if that were a thing lol. A VA can also do data entry well, but there aren't many situations when that will arise and you can't get a freelancer to do that as they work on their jobs.
If you're running a successful business, you likely have freelancers helping you out and you are probably automating whatever you can to reduce your own workload as well as the work for anyone else helping you out. If you do all of the above, you will literally save hundreds of hours each week, much more than you could even be awake lol. Your freelancers will work 5+ hours a day, and if you have 10 people doing certain tasks, that's a combined of 50 hours a day which isn't even possible for you to do since there is only 24 Save time, keep some sanity, and make some profits
