What is the one thing that you wish to be done by a bot/script in your day to day Internet marketing or online money making or building social network task etc..

For me:
I had similar requirement to autopost blogger blog with YouTube videos and for sure an automated script saved me tones of time

      I agree ...

  • Although I agree a little automation is great, there is an unhealthy fixation on automation in IM circles (I blame 4 Hour Working Week).

    This is especially dangerous if you are talking about the dealings with your customers/clients/subscribers.

    Sometimes a bit of good old human intervention can work wonders, and put you head and shoulders ahead of other marketers in the eyes of those who have come to you for help.

    Turning "newly created" Youtube videos on my computer into instant podcasts within a click of a button - so that i can market it on iTunes and other podcast sites.

      I know I can create Audio straight out of my video editing software.. so one save is the video and another is the audio file.

    I'd like to automate free facebook marketing

    There's a way to get FREE traffic off FB without resorting to FB pages and groups

    Unfortunately, this current method is very labor intensive since there are 4 distinct parts

    3 of those parts can be automated

    The 4th can use templates which can be customized

    Always look to automate as much "customer support" stuff as possible.

    For instance, simply by switching membership plugins, I now get ZERO people having "incomplete registrations", which happened about 1 in 10 times I would get a new member sign up (which meant I would get an angry email telling me that they were unable to access the stuff they paid for, which I then had to manually fix).

    Any little things like that are well worth automating if possible.

    It may surprise some that with the online sales material and the rise of social media interaction and messaging, the best and most effective way to close a sale is to get the person on the phone. I'm not talking about spammy robocalls here. I'm talking about one on one individual, personal interaction.

    Being somewhat shy I loved to see this all automated. Not going to happen.

    My goal is to have everything outsourced.

    I now have three websites, two are very big and very popular. The other is new.

    I have writers doing most of my content and a lot of editing. I focus my time on videos and podcasts, but even that is starting to get boring.

    I've given up having to be in control of everything. That was the biggest challenge for me to overcome.

    Until you automate and outsource you are limited to your time and skills. If it's just you, it's not a real business, nor is it passive income.

    The best internet marketers outsource almost ALL of their tasks and simply provide oversight to the people working for them. That should be everyone's ultimate goal.

    So the business I've been running for 30+ years, all by my lonesome, isn't really a business?

    Oh, the humanity!!

    That should be everyone's ultimate goal.
    By "everyone" you mean everyone who thinks like you, wants what you want, and has your exact goals. So, not "everyone."

    What is the one thing you want to automate
    I guess, putting other peoples money in my bank account without any effort on my part. I'm not talking about the myth of "passive income." I just want people to give me money because I'm Super-Awesome. But I don't want to have to deal with them.
