Social networking is perhaps the easiest way to waste your day away. You can scroll through Facebook and Twitter all day and still not read everything that’s posted. Try to be friendly and reply to everyone, and you’ll quickly decide that social networks are a Rube Goldberg machine of friendliness.
But for many of us, social networks aren’t just about wasting time or keeping up with our friends. They’re also for work. We’re sharing the new deals at our stores, the new products our team is working on, and our latest blog posts. We’re crunching numbers, trying to find ways to make more viral content, and crossing our fingers that people will come.
Surely they’ll come. You’ve already spent your whole afternoon on writing 140 character posts until you’re thinking in sound bites. Suddenly you hate Facebook and Twitter with a passion you didn’t know existed.
It doesn’t have to be that way. You could, instead, be growing your social media following by thousands each month and finding new time and opportunities to expand your business through social media. That’s why you need Zapier.
