Hi! Deb here, from the Zapier blog. One of the things we try to do on the blog is demystify the concept of automation. Automation is a tool that can help almost any small business or knowledge worker, but for some reason, it still feels like this weird, intangible thing for a lot of folks.
One of the reasons it’s hard to explain—and demonstrate the value of—is that people have all sorts of ideas about what automation means. We’re talking everything from futuristic robots to long strings of code that only big businesses can afford to make.
Our staff writer Justin put together a list of four common automation myths, along with some thoughts on how to debunk them. Take a look.
Did we miss any automation myths? And how do you explain automation to your friends, family, and coworkers? Let me know in the comments!
