Who couldn’t use an extra two or three hours each day? We’re all chasing those extra minutes, trying every productivity hack, hiring virtual assistants, or even sleeping less. While these tricks may add up to a small amount of time saved, you have to make sacrifices to get there.
The easiest way to save time without cutting back on those ZZZs is to free yourself from repetitive tasks. Think about all the manual work you do each day, from data entry to sending follow-up emails to managing invoices and payments. With automation, you can set everything up once and never have to worry about it again.
In this post, we’ll talk how you can automate your business and the tools you need.
It’s easy to understand the value of automation, but much harder to figure out exactly how to streamline your tasks. There are many tools available, however most of them have a steep learning curve and force you to master complex workflows.
On the other hand, customer relationship management (CRM) software offers the most important automation features in a simple, intuitive interface. A CRM like Infusionsoft is designed to get work done intelligently, saving you time and alleviating stress. It lets you manage your customers and your business in one place, making it easier to see the latest status on tasks, sales opportunities, and email results.
Once you centralize and organize all this important information, it’s time to figure out how to automate it.
Here are four ways you can automate your business:
We all have those mundane chores that are a natural part of our jobs. But, when you’re running a small business, those chores can quickly add up. Next thing you know, your day is full of tasks like building manual reports in Excel or invoicing clients.
Automation can help save time and alleviate stress by eliminating these manual to-dos. It can benefit any part of your business, from customer service to marketing to sales. And when you fully embrace automation, you can focus your precious time on where it matters most: growing your business.

Infusionsoft is now Keap. That’s weird to write, but it’s also exciting.
In 2001, trying to get Infusionsoft off the ground, there were many times when I wanted to quit. I’ll never forget my wife, after two years of struggling to survive, hugging me and saying, “Keep going.”
Over the last two years, we’ve talked with thousands of small business owners to get a deeper understanding of their unique challenges in today’s market. We learned that it’s harder than ever to succeed in small business. Customers expect more. On-demand is the rule. There’s no shortage of platforms on which to complain. A failed job or two can be damaging to your business.
Keap is our signal to the world—and to ourselves—that it’s time to make it easier to succeed. We’re on a mission to simplify growth for millions of small businesses. Our new name is a nod to the tenacity of the small business owner and encompasses everything we know to be true when it comes to success: keep going, keep serving, keep growing.
Along with a new name, we’ve expanded to two products. Keap, our newest product, is smart client management software that helps service businesses progress leads to satisfied clients. Infusionsoft by Keap is powerful CRM and sales and marketing automation software for advanced business needs.
Both are designed to make it easier than ever for more small businesses to get organized so they can deliver great service and close more business.
To your success,
