Business Automation: Hire an Expert or Do It Yourself (DIY): What’s Best for You?

When you start out with workflow automation, one of the first things you have to decide on is whether to hire a professional or begin doing the work by yourself.

Before we get into details, let’s cross out the obvious regarding this decision: It’s not as straightforward as it may seem.

This happens because modern automation platforms, such as Zapier and Make, are bridging the gap between technical and non-technical users, empowering anyone to automate beyond imagination.

As a result, it’s becoming normal to see all kinds of people – marketers, product managers, salespersons, business owners -automate workflows by themselves.

What once required coding skills and a great deal of time can now be done in a few minutes or hours.

However, ease of use and fast implementation times do not necessarily provide a full answer to everyone out there.

There are other factors to consider, and we’ll shine a light on them so you can make the right decision early on.

Workflows and processes vary greatly from company to company, and so does the complexity and goals of those processes.

It’s important to take a look at which processes you want to automate, and categorize them by relevance and difficulty.

With a clear view of the workflows and processes you wish to automate, you’ll have to assess two key aspects: the amount of time to deployment and your availability to build automated solutions.

Flexible deployment times work in your favor, even when your availability is somewhat limited.

On the other hand, if you need to deploy fast, you’ll have to tackle a learning curve while creating the solutions your business needs.

Fans of build in public methodologies won’t be too bothered by this occurrence, but everyone else might incline for external help at this point.

Before making a decision, it’s important to take a look in the mirror and answer this question in an honest way.
