As a small business owner, you juggle an endless parade of tasks and responsibilities. It can be hard to stay on top of everything when capacity is limited. Could AI assistants available today help optimize your productivity?
While not as sci-fi advanced as some may think, current AI assistants can automate basic tasks to free up your time:
Research and Reports
- Ask the assistant to compile data, generate reports or summarize content on various business topics. This can aid competitive, customer and market research.
- Have the assistant take notes during meetings and translate recordings into text transcripts. This preserves important information and discussions.
- CC the assistant on emails and ask it to organize them into topics and share summaries. This keeps your inbox decluttered.
- Let the assistant look at your calendar and remind you about upcoming appointments, deadlines and events. This helps keep you on schedule.
Social Media Support
- Give the assistant pre-approved content and have it post on your business social accounts on a set schedule. This simplifies social media management.
While limited compared to a human assistant, today’s AI can automate simple, repetitive tasks to boost productivity. And in the future, assistants are expected to take on even more sophisticated work with custom programming. But for now, look for ways to deploy readily available AI to help your business work smarter!
