How To Use IFTTT TO Automate Your Life and Business

How to Use IFTTT to Automate Your Life and Business.

In this video tutorial I will be talking about how to set up your IFTTT applets. What is IFTTT? It stands for IF THIS THEN THAT. In essence it connects applications and devices together to automate things and make your life just a bit easier. These "applets" as they are called are "recipes" that trigger certain actions between apps and/or devices. 

There are literally hundreds if not thousands of combinations of these applets you can set up to help you manage lots of mundane, day-to-day tasks.

How to Pick the Right Webinar Platorm: A Complete Guide

There are so many webinar platforms, with new ones popping up each day. It's difficult to know which one to choose. Cost is a factor for most of us, as is reliability. But there may be other features you are looking for: screen sharing, automated email sequences, custom branding, etc. I've done my best to compare what I think are the most important elements for most broadcasters. Below each platform, I've added my personal commentary.

How to Use Meet Edgar

Meet Edgar is a social media auto-scheduler. What makes it unique from Buffer and Hoot Suite is that it allows you to put content in one time, and then it circulates that content around the clock (based on a schedule that you set). 

You can send content out to Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. 

There is a similar service, called RecurPost. I'll be doing a demo on that later. Big difference is that RecurPost is less expensive.

How I Use Evernote to Manage My Biz & My Life

How I Use Evernote to Organize My Biz and My Life

Evernote is one of the most important tools I use in my business, and my life.  Although I do still love a nice sharp pencil and a clean pad of paper, nothing beats Evernote for keeping things organized. The secret to using Evernote successfully is in it's tagging feature. Yes, you can create oodles of notebooks and categories, but if you are anything like me, you will forget where you put something as soon as you put it there. Tags allow you to simple type whatever logical word comes to mind into the search bar, and if you tagged your item, it will pop up instantly. 

I created this video, below, to demonstrate, and also a workbook.

How to Make a Content Creation Assembly Line for Your Videos and Blog Posts

content creation assembly line for your video or blog post

In order to really grow an audience, it's so important to create good content, CONSISTENTLY. You want to become the go-to person in your niche. But creating good content, consistently is not exactly an easy proposition, right? This was a challenge for me, for sure. When I did create content, it was usually pretty good, but it was the consistency that I had trouble with. It might be months between vlogs or blog posts. Or even livestreaming or posting on my Facebook business page. 

That's when I decided to create a system, and it's made all the difference.

Use this as a guide, but don't feel like you have to do every single thing I've mentioned. The gist of it all is this:

1. Batch your content (you create several videos or blog posts at one time)

2. Move each piece of content through a process. A content assembly line.

(Having a virtual assistant to help with this is a game changer, and I created a free mini-course on the topic here.)

My favorite place to create this assembly line is in Trello, and I've made a template for you

 

Thinking about my content creation systems like this is really a credit to Todd Herman, who is a genius performance coach. A year ago I signed up for his course, 90 Day Year and using his methods I was able to accomplish a year's worth of progress in 90 days. He's got great free videos here.
