Horray! As hard as you work during the year, we believe it's really important to schedule some time off. Put work aside and enjoy the festive season with your family. Set up automation, kick back and relax for Christmas!
We're totally behind you on this one. If you're lucky enough to be able to take time away from work over Christmas you really should! We've pulled together a few tools to help;
1. Lead generation funnels
If you haven't already, ensure that your lead generation processes are automated, from the initial contact, appointment booking (we use Calendly!), download request and many more - lead management tools such as Leadpages allow hands-off automation.
2. Triggered tools
We're in love with nifty apps like Zapier and IFTTT for time-saving automation. From handy iPhone apps that simplify and automate the most intuitive of processes (automatic backing up iPhone photos to Dropbox, anyone?), to setting up a new subscriber straight into your email database when they sign up somewhere else. It's a real no-brainer for any time of the year.
3. Automation basics
Check out our previous blogs on this topic, which contain a wealth of tips on setting up automation for your marketing and putting plans in place for downing tools for a week. The weather may be colder but the tips aren't any different!
That's all from our free 2016 advent calendar for this year! We hope you have enjoyed the series.
