If you’re operating a side hustle, you want to make things as easy as possible. You need to make sure that things are fast and simple.
You want your side hustle to be as passive as it can be and there are a few ways that you can do this. Though perhaps the best option would be automation.
With automation, you can make sure that a) you don’t have to hire extra staff and b) you don’t have to worry about levels of efficiency. Instead, you can make sure that everything is taken care of as quickly as possible and that your company reaches its maximum potential.
Let’s look at some of the ways that you can incorporate automation into your business model.
Making Payments Easy
Even working on a side hustle, you might still have people to pay. Don’t forget a side hustle can quickly grow to become similar to an actual business. When that happens, you’ll want to keep a lot of the jobs and issues in check which can be tough. But, automation is paving the way here.
With automation, you can rely on DataServ or a similar service. Using this option, you’ll be able to get people paid in your business easily and make sure that you don’t have to worry about payments taking forever. You can also completely avoid hiring an accountant who could be a huge expense for your company.
Sorting Out Content
Content is by far one of the most popular and indeed effective forms of online marketing. If you want to make sure that your content is appealing and works for SEO, it needs to be added like clockwork on a regular basis. You have to keep your website exciting and new, particularly for returning customers. This can be difficult to do, particularly when you’re setting up a side hustle like a blog. But automation could be the answer, particularly for sponsored content.
Sponsored content can be a key way to add income to your blog, but to do that you need to often create the new content yourself. That’s time-consuming. Automated software creates the content for you and these days with a little tweaking it will be suitable for publication.
You might be worried about security, particularly if your side hustle involves a full website. However, this can once again be completely automated with cloud solutions that are available. Instead of constantly worrying about the security of your site, you can invest in the software, and it will look after the site for you.
Finally, you might be running an ecommerce business as a side hustle. It’s a great move, but you need to keep up your level of customer care.
Or, at the very least, keep up your appearance of it. To do this, you can add a live chat to your website. This can set up to respond to basic customer questions and give them the answer they need. If the response system is unable to answer the question, you will then be able to speak to the customer yourself.
Social Media Automation
If you’re marketing your business online, you can use applications like Hootsuite and Buffer to automate social media updates to your Facebook Page, Twitter account, and more. You can batch process updates to these platforms and then automation takes over from there to keep your audience updated.
