If you’d love to jump on the automation bandwagon but struggle to navigate the myriad of information you find online, then we can help. Even if you have dabbled with Zapier you might be worried that you’re doing it wrong or are not 100% sure that you’re using the right apps in the first place.
It can be overwhelming to try and learn something new yourself, with no support, especially with the busy lives we all lead. You just want to get straight to the point and gain the knowledge you need, with confidence that you’re doing it the right way, the first time!
We believe everyone can (and should!) learn automation skills because their working life will be enriched in so many ways, including :
- Greater productivity.
- Fewer human errors from copying data from one app into another.
- Fewer boring, manual tasks and therefore improved job satisfaction!
For businesses, empowering staff with automation skills can lead to increased profits, more innovation and creativity, keeping you ahead of competitors in a global market.
These are the reasons we are launching the Solvaa Automation Academy‘s first training programme, ‘Simple Automation Blueprint: Zero to Hero’. In this post, we wanted to explain more about who the course is aimed at and what students can expect to learn.
Read on to find out more!
Who is ‘Simple Automation Blueprint: Zero to Hero’ aimed at?
The first Solvaa Automation Academy training programme is aimed at anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of business process automation from experts who have been doing it for many years. Whether you are at the start of your automation journey or have been using Zapier for a while but want to make sure you’re making the most of it, then Simple Automation Blueprint: Zero to Hero is for you.
Our expert-led automation training programme is aimed at individuals and teams in micro, small and medium-sized businesses. This includes solopreneurs, consultants and freelancers who are looking to improve their own efficiency as well as using their new knowledge as an opportunity to add a new service and income stream to their business.
For business owners who are juggling tasks which span every department including marketing, sales, operations and finance, implementing automation can be a game-changer. You can read our Chief Problem Solver Kelly’s origin story to find out how she went from being a frazzled business owner to an automation superhero!
Learning how to successfully implement automation in your business will allow you to focus on the critical tasks that demand your skills and attention. You can then let the robots do the menial tasks to save you time and money, which has a direct impact on your bottom line.
If you read about current trends in automation then adopting automation is a no-brainer and absolutely essential for competing in today’s markets.
If you’re an employee then learning digital process automation skills will increase your value and enhance marketability in the wider jobs market. You will become the go-to person for improving business process efficiency, and in turn, directly impact profits. We encourage ‘automation champion’ roles in every organisation, to empower your peers, streamline business workflows and improve staff morale. The Simple Automation Blueprint: Zero to Hero course specifically helps to develop an ‘automation champion’ mindset which is a highly sought-after skill.
The success of the automation revolution means that businesses need help with implementing business process automation. This is an opportunity for Virtual Assistants, Online Business Managers (OBMs), Bookkeepers, Accountants, Systems Consultants and Digital Marketers to add another string to their bow and offer automation consultancy to clients.
It’s a smart move, as demand for these skills is only going to increase in the future. Learning from the experts at the Solvaa Automation Academy means you can offer lucrative freelance automation consultancy alongside your existing services.
What will students learn at the Solvaa Automation Academy?
For the Simple Automation Blueprint: Zero to Hero training programme, we teach the fundamentals of business process automation including how to analyse your existing processes and then get started with building workflow automations with Zapier.
We have a blueprint for learning which takes students through how to simplify and improve existing processes, how cloud applications work, deciding which tasks to automate and how to use Zapier.
You’ll learn how to manage Zaps, from the basics to advanced functions, and we will be with you every step of the way. You’ll have access to our experts as well as an exclusive community of fellow automators. There are live calls where you can ask all your burning questions, hands-on workshops to keep you on track with implementing your new skills as well as video-based lessons for each module in the programme.
Having worked with many different businesses, from solopreneurs to medium-sized organisations, we know our methodology works, and we’re keen to share the automation love!
What are the benefits of learning automation with Solvaa?
The benefits of learning automation with the Solvaa Automation Academy are that you’ll be learning from experts who teach the best principles for implementing automation.
