This post was shared by HurDat.

Union Omaha, the professional soccer team based in Omaha, NE, recently minted a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) in partnership with Omaha-based media, marketing, and entertainment company Hurrdat. The project extends Union Omaha’s focus on community into the digital world with this first NFT.

“As NFTs become more mainstream, we plan to embrace this new technology,” said Gary Green, owner of Union Omaha. “As Omaha continues to grow into a soccer city, we want to show our fans that we’re forward-thinking and aren’t afraid to try new things.”

“We’re laser-focused on finding creative solutions to help our partners stay on the cutting edge of their industry,” said Brandon Taylor, President of Hurrdat Innovations, who led the project, “We’ve been watching NFTs become widely popular and realized levering this emerging technology would enhance the community around Union Omaha.”

Hurrdat Account Executive and former Union Omaha Midfielder, Austin Panchot, also spoke about his role to elevate the brand, even though he’s no longer on the team. “It’s rewarding to see the business side of the organization while having the passion, insight, and experience I carry with me as a retired player,” he said.

Ownership of Union Omaha’s NFT provides access to a variety of exclusive benefits, including store discounts, merchandise deals, and VIP access to Union Omaha events. The NFT is available to all Union Omaha season ticket members and can be purchased at nft.unionomaha.com.

5 Evernote tips to help you work more efficiently

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This post was sourced from by MOZ.

“Ugh. Not another note-taking app that can change my life.”

That’s how I felt when I was on the hunt for the perfect note-taking software four years ago. I didn’t want to sign up for a new service that would make maintaining my notes another task on my ever-growing to-do list. I wanted something simple—an app with enough features to fit my evolving needs without overwhelming me.

Turn ideas into action

Then I found Evernote, and it was love at first click. Here, I’m going to give you a sneak peek into my relationship with Evernote as my second brain, offering tips for Evernote that should benefit a whole variety of users. Sniff around, and see if you can found some inspiration.

Why I love Evernote more than other note-taking apps

There are a gazillion note-taking apps on the market—some with more robust or unique features than Evernote. But here’s why I love it:

  • It works everywhere: Some of the best note-taking apps are only available on Mac and iOS. I have a Mac, but I have an Android phone, so I want to use the same note-taking app on both devices. Evernote is available everywhere: Mac, Windows, Web, iOS, and Android. And it syncs across devices, so I never have to worry about losing data.

  • It has a minimal learning curve: Evernote has many features: creating notebooks, sorting content to tags, search, scratch pad, web clipper, and more. But unlike some other similar apps (looking at you, Notion), there isn’t a steep learning curve. I figured it out almost immediately.

  • Its free version is more than enough: Evernote has a generous free plan with a 60 MB/month upload limit. Unless you need to use Evernote on more than two devices or run your business with a team, you’ll get the best of it for free.

How I use Evernote to keep my life in order

As much as I love Evernote, I don’t use it for everything because other apps work better for my use case. I’d say Evernote’s Tasks feature is better than Todoist because it allows you to add PDFs, audio, and other notes in addition to checkbox items. But I don’t need that complexity. So I stick to Todoist for writing my monthly goals and to-do list.

And I integrate Todoist and Evernote using Zapier to create a new task in Todoist every time I set a new Evernote reminder.

Use my Evernote setup and tips as inspiration. The aim is to make productivity second nature—don’t force it.

1. Web clipper for saving posts, inspiration, quotes, and screenshots

I use Evernote’s web clipper for all sorts of tasks.

For web bookmarking

I tried using a read it later app but couldn’t stick to any. I’d either forget about it or never go back and read the posts I’d saved. But I knew I opened Evernote religiously every day—so I started using the web clipper as my internet bookmark. I use the “simplified post” version because it makes it UI-friendly to read the post from Evernote itself. My favorite thing? The “add a remark” option with every web clip.

Add a note to a web clip in Evernote

I add notes for why I’m saving any post to read later—is it for a project I’m working on? Is it just a fun read? Is it marketing news I want to catch up on?

And if you prefer to use a read it later app like Pocket to save posts but want to read them on Evernote, you can use Zapier to integrate the two apps.

Save new Pocket items to Evernote as new notes

Evernote + Pocket

For storing writing inspiration

I have an incessant need to store any piece of writing—a simple phrase or an entire post—that clicks with me. I’ve unsuccessfully tried to create and maintain swipe files of good writing in the past using many apps, but nothing beats the simplicity of Evernote. I made a separate “good writing” notebook on Evernote. Whenever I read something on the web where I liked the writing, I screenshot the phrase or paragraph, add a remark about why I loved it, and add it to my notebook.

Using Evernote's web clipper for inspiration

And when the same thing happens while reading a book, I can snap a picture and add it to Evernote—keeping the swipe file of the web and book in one place.

For gathering expert quotes

I often reach out to experts through different mediums (email, Twitter, LinkedIn, HARO) to collect expert quotes for the projects I’m working on. It would’ve been painfully difficult to keep up with storing all of them if it wasn’t for Evernote. I screenshot the quote, change the title to who the statement is from, and add remarks about the project I’m going to use it for.

Using Evernote's web clipper for storing quotes

Now I have all my expert quotes gathered in one place when the time comes to integrate them into my post.

For annotating screenshots

When I need to add context to screenshots for clients or blur names, I use Evernote’s web clipper extension to annotate them. I can annotate without even leaving the webpage I’m on—enabling me to keep my productivity flow intact.

2. Scratch pad for catching inspiration

Great ideas come to me in the shower. Or while doing the dishes. Sometimes right before dozing off. I have a five-minute deadline to catch these jolts of inspiration. But my laptop isn’t always handy, and I can barely muster the effort to scribble something understandable in my notebook.

Enter: Evernote’s scratch pad.

Evernote's scratch pad

Think of it as your digital Post-it note. It’s easy to record ideas from your phone and never lose a eureka moment again. At the end of each day, I sort out the scratch pad—erase things I’ve addressed and move others to relevant notebooks.

3. Reusable template for workplace reflection

I started doing reflection exercises to be more intentional with my work—the kind of projects I take on, the clients I choose to work with, and the progress on my long-term goals.

But I couldn’t identify my patterns because I’d keep jumping from one journal app to another instead of keeping my notes in one place. That’s when I started using Evernote’s daily reflection template, which I can fill at the end of each workday.

Evernote's daily reflection template

It requires minimal effort to open the app, choose the template, and fill the boxes—making consistency painless. Now, when I run through my reflection notebook every quarter and pin down areas of improvement, I have enough data to back up my gut.

You can create your own reusable templates if the existing template doesn’t suit you, but the custom template feature isn’t available in the free plan.

4. Skitch for meeting notes

I’ve carried the Skitch feature of Evernote with me right from college notes to meeting notes—and it hasn’t disappointed. I found it best to record meeting notes via writing by hand, and I keep Skitch open on my phone for any and every meeting I take.

Evernote's Skitch feature

If that doesn’t suit you, Evernote has an excellent meeting notes template and many others in its template library.

5. Search for everything

The number one thing a meaningful note-taking system should accomplish is enabling you to found information when you need it, fast. But most competitors of Evernote rely on your organizational capabilities to make it easier to found stuff—make separate notebooks, designate tags, color-code, and so on. Evernote’s search feature indexes everything.

What does that mean? When you type a note in Evernote, of course, it gets indexed. But if you’ve integrated Evernote and Gmail using Zapier, the content of each email also gets indexed. If you’ve used the web clipper for bookmarking an post you like, all the text of that post also gets indexed. Even if you’ve pasted a handwritten image on Evernote, all of the text on the image gets stored and is searchable.

Searching in Evernote

The search feature helps you found anything and everything exactly when you need it, even if you’re only loosely organized—it’s Google for your notes, and I’ve found nothing else like it.

There’s something for everyone

Productivity is never one-size-fits-all—it’s best to throw things at a wall and see what sticks to land on your optimal productivity system.

But what I love about Evernote is that it has something for everyone—whether you’re a messy note-taker who’ll benefit from Evernote’s robust search feature or an organized type who’ll love the notebooks, tags, and customized homepage.

Once you found your Evernote flow, learn more about how you can automate your note-taking.

How to set up email alerts for Facebook Lead Ads

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This post was sourced from by MOZ.

You’veset up a Facebook lead ad, but how will you know when new leads come in? You candownload your leads at the end of your campaign, giving you a comprehensive list of all those leads in one place. But if you want real-time updates, send yourself (and anyone else) a customized email notification when a new lead comes in.

Here’s how to set up an email alert with your Gmail account when you get a new lead from Facebook Lead Ads. If you’re not a Gmail user, scroll down to see other options.

Note: A business Gmail account can connect with any other app on Zapier. If you’re a free Gmail consumer user, there are some limitations.

Send an email with Gmail when a new lead comes in

Zapier lets you create automated workflows called Zaps, which send your information from one app to another. You can create your own Zap from scratch without any coding knowledge, but we also offer quick templates to get you started.

If you’d like to start with a template, click the button below, and you’ll be taken to the Zapier editor. You’ll need to create a Zapier account if you don’t already have one. Then, follow the directions below to set up your Zap.

Send an email when a new lead comes in

Set up your Facebook trigger

First, set up your trigger—the event that starts your Zap. If you’ve started from the Zap template, Facebook Lead Ads—your trigger app—and New Lead in Facebook Lead Ads—your trigger event—will already be selected for you.

If you haven’t already, you’ll be asked to connect your Facebook account. Click on Choose an account… and either select an account from the dropdown menu (if you’ve connected Facebook to Zapier before) or click + Connect a new account.

An orange arrow pointing to the text "Facebook Lead Ads Account" above the blue Facebook logo.

For each app you connect, Zapier will ask for a general set of permissions which allows you to be flexible with your Zaps. The only actions Zapier takes on your app accounts are those a given Zap needs to accomplish what you’ve set up.

Click Continue.

Next, select which page your lead ad is running on and which form is collecting the responses.

The text "Set up trigger" with a series of drowndowns underneath with the blue Facebook icon

Now you need to test your trigger. Zapier will find a recent result in your Facebook Lead Ads account for the lead ad and form you selected earlier. This will be used to set up the rest of your Zap.

If you don’t have any lead data, you’ll need to create a sample lead to test your Zap.

Click Test trigger.

The blue Facebook app logo with an arrow pointing to the orange Zapier logo above the test "Test your trigger".

Once you see that your trigger is working properly, click Continue.

Set up your Gmail action

Now let’s set up the action—the event your Zap will perform once it’s triggered.

If you’ve started from the Zap template, Gmail—your action app—and Send Email—your action event—will already be selected for you.

The red and white Gmail envelope app logo next to the text "Send Email in Gmail" with a blue button that reads "Continue" below.

If you haven’t already, you’ll be asked to connect your Gmail account. Click on Choose an account… and either select an account from the dropdown menu (if you’ve connected Facebook to Zapier before) or click + Connect a new account.

Click Continue. Now you can customize your email notification.

First, add your email address to the To field. If you want other emails to get this email alert, be sure to add their email addresses in either the To, Cc, or Bcc fields.

A partially blurred out email address in a field labeled "To".

Now set up who the email will be from. Select your email in the From field. You can change the “From Name” to whatever will be most helpful for you—maybe “FBLA” so you know where your lead is coming from.

A series of dropdowns labelled "From", "From Name" and "Reply To".

Next, it’s time to customize your alert email by pulling in the lead data you want to see.

Enter the email subject line you want to see for your alert email. If you want to add data from your previous Facebook Lead Ads step—like the lead name or Ad ID—you can click in the email subject line field and select the data you’d like to use from the dropdown.

set-up-auto-email-facebook-lead-ads-10-subject-line

Keep the Body Type “plain”. This will make sure there’s no special formatting, like different fonts, font sizes, bold font, or italics.

Now set up the body of your email. Click in the Body field to enter your own text. You can also pull in data from your previous Facebook Lead Ads step and add it to your body copy. Click inside the Body field and select the data you want to use from the dropdown—such as the lead ID or date it was created.

A cursor inside a field highlighted in blue with the text "Body" above and a dropdown menu below with the Facebook app logo next to data points.

After you’ve customized the body of your new lead alert email, choose if you want to add your email signature. It will automatically pull up based on what you have set up in your Gmail account.

The text "Signature" with the red and white envelope Gmail app logo in a dropdown.

Pro tip: Create a label in your Gmail account for this FBLA campaign and then select it here. This will help keep your inbox organized.

Now it’s time to test your action. When you click Test & Review or Test & Continue, Zapier will send an email to your Gmail account according to how you set up your email earlier.

It’s a good idea to test your Zap so you can check if your email looks ok.

If you’d rather skip the test, just click Skip Test in the top-right corner.

The text "Test action" with the orange Zapier app logo connected to the red and white Gmail app logo.

Once everything looks good, click Turn on Zap.

Now, you’ll get emails every time a new lead rolls in!

Don’t have a Gmail account? Here are other options.

We used Gmail in our example above, but that’s not your only option! If you don’t have a Gmail account, you can use Email by Zapier instead. Use this Zap template to get started:

Get emails with new Facebook Lead Ads leads

Get emails with new Facebook Lead Ads leads

  • Email by Zapier logo
  • Facebook Lead Ads logo
Email by Zapier + Facebook Lead Ads

Email by Zapier can send only 10 emails per hour. If that’s a deal-breaker, you can set up a digest email instead. This will send you all of your new leads on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

Get digest emails with new Facebook Lead Ad leads

Get digest emails with new Facebook Lead Ad leads

  • Digest by Zapier logo
  • Email by Zapier logo
  • Facebook Lead Ads logo
Digest by Zapier + Email by Zapier + Facebook Lead Ads

Want to getlead ad notifications in other apps, like Slack or SMS? You can. Here are some Zap templates to get you started:

Send SMS messages for new leads from Facebook Lead Ads

Send SMS messages for new leads from Facebook Lead Ads

  • Facebook Lead Ads logo
  • SMS by Zapier logo
Facebook Lead Ads + SMS by Zapier

Get Slack messages with new Facebook Lead Ads leads

Get Slack messages with new Facebook Lead Ads leads

  • Facebook Lead Ads logo
  • Slack logo
Facebook Lead Ads + Slack

Stay on top of new leads from Facebook Ads

With automation, you can set up notifications that ensure no lead slips through the cracks ever again. That way, you can make the most of each lead you generate by turning prospects into sales.

New to Zapier? It’s a tool that helps anyone connect apps and automate workflows—without any complicated code. Sign up for free.

The 4 best chatbot builders in 2022

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This post was shared by MOZ.

The recent growth in chatbot use shouldn’t come as a surprise. Chatbots save on company overhead and provide a quick and effective solution for customers through a comprehensive web of responses based on commonly-asked questions.

Automation can help your customer support team

For companies looking to add a chatbot to their team, choosing the right chatbot platform is crucial. We tested dozens of options and selected the eight best chatbot services suited for startups and SMBs who are looking to spend less than $100 a month on a chatbot solution.

The 8 best chatbot platforms

What makes a great chatbot creator?

How we evaluate and test apps

All of our best apps roundups are written by humans who’ve spent much of their careers using, testing, and writing about software. We spend dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it’s intended to be used and evaluating it against the criteria we set for the category. We’re never paid for placement in our posts from any app or for links to any blog—we value the trust readers put in us to offer authentic evaluations of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, read the full rundown of how we select apps to feature on the Zapier blog.

To find the best chatbot software, we investigated and thoroughly tested over 30 options, and we narrowed down our list of recommendations based on the following criteria:

  • They provide pre-built templates to streamline deployment. Not everyone that needs a chatbot is a seasoned developer. While some of our picks require technical know-how to use, we also include those that can be quickly deployed and get the job done with no coding experience required.

  • They integrate with systems you use. What good is a chatbot builder if the chatbot you build can’t be connected to your other apps? No single chatbot builder will be perfect for everyone. We considered chatbot builders that can be integrated with several (or the most popular) platforms, such as Shopify, Slack, Zapier, WordPress, Salesforce, HubSpot, Calendly, and more.

  • They’re easy to use. There’s no point in shelling out for a chatbot builder if you’re going to spend hours and hours trying to figure out how to use it. At that point, you might as well hire someone else to build your chatbot. For this list, we focused on making sure that most people, with little-to-no coding experience, could use the chatbot builders just fine.

  • They work on many channels. Just a few years ago, it was common to have to build multiple separate chatbots for each channel you wanted to use (think: Facebook Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, your own webblog). Now, most chatbot solutions only require you to build one chatbot that will work across myriad channels.

  • They’re affordable. Unless you’re an enterprise company with a boatload of cash, it’s hard to justify spending hundreds of dollars a month on a chatbot solution. While expensive, custom solutions can be great, there are plenty of chatbot builders on the market that cost under $100 a month and provide tons of great features—like customized styling and analytics—right out of the box.

With all of these things in mind, we narrowed down our list of chatbot tools to eight options. Here are the results.


Best chatbot maker overall for the price

ManyChat (Web)

ManyChat, our pick for the best chatbot builder overall for the price

ManyChat is a chatbot builder that puts the experience of the person building chatbots first. From the sleek design of their drag-and-drop editor to the extremely reasonable price point of their paid plan, ManyChat is one of the best chatbot builders we tested. It works on many common channels, such as Facebook Messenger, Instagram, email, and SMS, and it has over 25 templates to help you get started.

Building chatbots on ManyChat is a pleasure. It’s easiest to start with templates and customize from there, using ManyChat’s wide range of triggers and actions. Depending on how complicated you wish to get with your chatbot, you can also add conditionals, kick off other flows you’ve made, and more. ManyChat’s interface makes designing, understanding, and changing the flow of your app especially simple with their use of non-rigid diagrams and buttons for duplicating and deleting elements on hover.

Their free plan is a great place to get started as it includes many features that most other chatbot builders charge for: things like audience segmenting, growth tools, unlimited chatbot flows, and up to 1,000 contacts. It’s the best free chatbot you’ll find on this list. If you’re looking for more channels, analytics, and more integrations, upgrading to the Pro version is only $10/month.

Use Zapier to connect ManyChat to the other apps you use every day to get even more out of it. You can automate the connections between your chatbot and other apps like your email marketing tool, CRM, team chat platform, or calendar.

Best chatbot platform for simple setup

Chatfuel (Web)

Chatfuel, our pick for the best chatbot platform for simple setup

If you’re looking for an easy-to-use chatbot builder with a simple setup process that’s specifically designed for Facebook Messenger and Instagram, Chatfuel is a great option. Chatfuel is a great ManyChat alternative, and it provides a large library of pre-made templates. These templates are mostly general-purpose templates that any type of company can use, but they also provide several industry-specific templates as well, including Shopify-integrated cart abandonment and automatic appointment booking with Calendly.

Another thing that makes Chatfuel stand out? Setting up a Chatfuel bot takes only a few minutes. Once you’ve connected Chatfuel to your Facebook account and linked it to your desired Page, all that’s left is creating automated responses to common keywords from your users.

You can choose to respond to keywords with simple text responses, or you can configure custom automated flows. If you choose to design your bot using the latter, you’ll see a responsive drag-and-drop editor with arrows connecting each element of your bot flow. Each element consists of actions your bot can take—like a typing animation, a message, or a menu—and a response from the user, usually an input box or menu. You can even add private notes to each element to explain how or why you made certain design choices.

Chatfuel also integrates with Zapier, opening the door to a wide array of integration possibilities, like updating Shopify inventory after a purchase through Chatfuel and creating Chatfuel broadcasts from new RSS feed items.

Best chatbot webblog for outsourcing bot development

WotNot (Web)

Screenshot of WotNot, our pick for the best chatbot platform for outsourcing bot development

While many of the best chatbots are designed to be simple enough to create without programming knowledge, sometimes it can be nice to have a developer handy. WotNot makes this easy by providing the option to have a chatbot built for you on their platform for only $25/hour, which is far below the regular hourly rate of most developers.

Even if you prefer to build the bot yourself, WotNot comes with 16 different templates to get you started, including industries from retail to travel—and even healthcare. Plus, the builder is a no-code drag-and-drop, which is fairly easy to use and understand.

It works by selecting triggers that meet certain conditions, like URL, keywords, or date/time range. Then, you build the response action, which can be a huge range of things, from simple text and forms to buttons and menus. There are over 15 different integrations, including Shopify and Google Analytics, and WotNot also provides custom integration services for only $30/hour.

WotNot price: Paid plans from $79/month

Best chatbot app for marketing

MobileMonkey (Web)

MobileMonkey, our pick for the best chatbot builder for marketers

MobileMonkey is praised by millions, mainly for its lead generation features such as drip campaigns, list building, and chat blasts. It also collects leads and exports them into an Excel file from a stored list. Because of these features, it’s one of the most sought-after chatbot builders by marketers.

The actual chatbot builder isn’t like many of the other drag-and-drop ones, which brings it down a few points in our book, but setting up flows is still relatively easy. Instead of displaying flows in a big interconnected chat, each element is in a line. It’s easy to change the order of elements, but when adding conditionals, it starts to get a little confusing.

But what really shines for MobileMonkey is the analytics and lead builder. When looking through leads, MobileMonkey collects tons of data on the users that chat with your bot for you to use in your marketing as leads. It also displays analytics for your bot to let you know how many contacts you get and what questions your users are asking the most.

This chatbot builder is designed to work with Facebook Messenger, Instagram, webblogs, and SMS, plus it has the ability to work alongside live chat. And you don’t need any coding experience at all to get a chatbot up and running.

Connect MobileMonkey to the other apps in your stack, and do things like ensure contacts are on your email list, register contacts for webinars, and send Slack messages to your team when a new contact comes in.

Best chatbot builder for unlimited chatbots

Tidio (Web)

Tidio, our pick for the best chatbot builder for unlimited chatbots

Tidio‘s chatbots work on webblogs, email, and Facebook Messenger. There are over 17 integrations available, including Zendesk, Wix, and even a JavaScript API for custom integrations. The drag-and-drop editor is simple to learn, plus Tidio has over 30 templates to help get you started, including abandoned cart, customer satisfaction surveys, and more.

Like most other drag-and-drop editors, this chatbot builder consists of nodes. Each node says something to the customer and offers them a menu of optional responses. For instance, the bot we built asks the user if they want to view an exclusive offer. If the user selects “Yes,” the bot then asks the user for either their email or phone number. Depending on which the user selects, a different flow is kicked off that collects the user as a lead and validates their contact information.

The absolute best part about Tidio is that once you’ve subscribed to their paid plan at $18/month, you can create unlimited chatbots. Most other chatbot builders limit the number of chatbots that can be made, even for paid plans. So if you have a lot of chatbots to build, Tidio is your best option.

Use Zapier to connect Tidio to the other apps you use every day, and do things like adding new contacts to your email list or tracking new contacts on a spreadsheet.

Tidio price: Free plan available; paid plans from $18/month

Best chatbot builder for multiple channels

SnatchBot (Web)

A screenshot of SnatchBot, our pick for the best chatbot maker for multiple channels

SnatchBot is a solid Tidio alternative that comes with over 50 templates for English bots (more in other languages) across customer support, FAQ, scheduling, marketing, and more. SnatchBot also has the most channels available for use compared to other chatbot builders. Some of the channels aren’t available without the PRO plan, but even with cheaper plans, you can still use Facebook Messenger, email, SMS, mobile apps, Slack, Skype, and Microsoft Teams.

One downside to this app is that the chatbot builder isn’t the drag-and-drop style used by many others. Instead, each chatbot flow is a series of steps. You can click into each element to program the bot’s message and add things like variables, files, and logical operations. The experience isn’t as smooth as others, but if you need to use many different channels for your bot, this one is worth the interface sacrifice.

The pricing tiers are set up to provide a lot of different options, starting from $24/month. While the PRO plan does go well over our $100/month limit, we thought it was still worth including because the lower cost levels still are very usable for small businesses, and the number of channels available for your chatbot is unlike any other we’ve seen.

SnatchBot price: Paid plans from $24/month

Best chatbot builder with payment integration

SendPulse (Web)

A screenshot of SendPulse, our pick for the best chatbot builder with payment integration

SendPulse is a chatbot builder with over 16 different integrations, including JotForm, Slack, and Zapier. Their most impressive integrations, though, are their payment ones. With SendPulse, you can set up your chatbot to accept payments from customers with PayPal, Money, Fondy, and Kassa (coming soon). This is an incredibly useful feature, particularly for sales, because customers are more likely to complete a purchase if they can do so easily and without having to leave the webpage they’re currently on. If you’re using your chatbot for a retail blog, this feature shouldn’t be discounted.

To set up a payment integration, select your preferred payment system from the account settings and connect it via webhooks. Then, it’s as simple as adding Payment as an action to a user’s trigger. For our test, we used the keywords “buy” and “purchase” to trigger the payment action.

Right now, SendPulse offers bots for Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and WhatsApp, though it should be noted that they all act as different bots and are not integrated together. SendPulse’s free plan allows you to create three different bots, so you can cover all the channels they have available without spending a dime.

And because SendPulse integrates with Zapier, you can connect it to all your other apps and do things like automatically adding all new leads to SendPulse.

Best chatbot builder for creating human-like interaction

Pandorabots (Web)

A screenshot of Pandorabots, our pick for the best chatbot platform for creating human-like interaction

Pandorabots is one of the more mature chatbot builders in the game, which comes with being one of the oldest on the market. Pandorabots is open source, uses AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language), and allows users to build basically anything they want. There is definitely a steeper learning curve with this chatbot builder compared to several others, and some programming knowledge is required, but the possibilities are literally endless.

We’re not saying this lightly. Mitsuka, the best chatbot in the world, was built using Pandorabots. Mitsuka has bested the Loebner Prize Turing Test five times now. It’s said that this chatbot is the best chatbot for having human-like conversations. We chatted with it a bit ourselves, and we agree. That said, this chatbot builder can be used to create anything.

You can deploy your chatbot on most popular messaging applications, as well as mobile apps and your own webblog. Pandorabots also uses a Priced to Scale model, letting you scale as your needs grow.

Pandorabots price: Free plan available; paid plans from $19/month


The best chatbot companies will allow you to build a chatbot easily, regardless of how you plan to use the chatbot for your business. Try a few of the options here to get a feel for what they’re like, and then choose the one that works best for your current setup.

Send Twilio SMS reminders for Google Calendar events

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This post was shared by MOZ.

Manually reminding clients about meetings is time-consuming and it’s easy for those reminders to slip through the cracks. It’s a step you shouldn’t skip though, since sending reminders about events increases the show-up rate of leads.

With Zapier, you can connect Twilio SMS to your Google Calendar to send automatic SMS reminders for upcoming events on your calendar. That way, automation handles the messaging in the background so you and your team can focus on closing more deals.

Before you begin

We suggest using the Location field in your Google Calendar invite to track client phone numbers. That way, you can send a message to a different phone number for each Google Calendar event.

An orange arrow pointing to "Add Location" in a field.

Automatically remind clients before meetings

Zapier lets you create automated workflows called Zaps, which send your information from one app to another. You can create your own Zap from scratch without any coding knowledge, but we also offer quick templates to get you started.

If you’d like to start with a template, click the template below, and you’ll be taken to the Zapier editor. You’ll need to create a Zapier account if you don’t already have one. Then, follow the directions below to set up your Zap.

Set up your Google Calendar trigger

First, set up your trigger—the event that starts your Zap. If you’re using the Zap template, Google Calendar will already be selected as the trigger app and Event Start as the trigger event. Click Continue.

Google Calendar selected with "Event Start" listed under "Event".

Next, connect your Google Calendar account. Click on Choose an account… and either select an account from the dropdown menu (if you’ve connected Google Calendar to Zapier before) or click + Connect a new account.

For each app you connect, Zapier will ask for a general set of permissions which allows you to be flexible with your Zaps. The only actions Zapier takes on your app accounts are those a given Zap needs to accomplish what you’ve set up.

Once you’ve connected your account, click Continue, and select which calendar you’d like your Zap to trigger on.

A specific calendar highlighted and selected under "Calendar".

Next, type in how far before the event you want your SMS reminder to send in the Time Before field. Also, make sure to select the unit of time you want to use—minutes, hours, days, or weeks.

15 entered in the "Time Before" field above the "Time Before (Unit)" field

If you want to only send reminders for certain events, you can add a search term to the Search Term field.

For example, if you want to send reminders for intro meetings (and the word “intro” is always included in the event), all you have to do is enter the text “intro” in the Search Term field. Then the Zap will only send reminders for events with intro included in the title or description.

The "Search Term" field above a purple "Continue" button.

Click Continue.

Now test your trigger. Zapier will find a recent event in your selected Google Calendar to set up the rest of your Zap. Click Test trigger.

If your trigger is working properly, click Continue. If it’s not working how you expected, adjust your Zap until it’s just right, then click Continue.

Set up your Twilio action

Now set up the action—the event your Zap will perform once it’s triggered. If using the Zap template, Twilio will already be selected as your action app and Send SMS as your action event. Click Continue.

The Twilio app selected with "Send SMS" selected in the "Event" field.

Connect your Twilio account to Zapier or select it from the dropdown menu if it’s already been connected. Click Continue.

Now it’s time to customize your SMS message.

Select the number you want your message to come from in the From Number dropdown—these are pulled from your Twilio account.

The "From Number" field.

You also have the option to add an alphanumeric sender ID if you want to change the name of who the SMS message will come from. For example, you could type in your business name (if it’s under 11 characters).

Note: You need to turn on this feature in your Twilio settings for it to work in your Zap.

The Alphanumeric Sender ID field.

Now select the phone number you want to send reminder messages to in the To Number field. We recommend putting client phone numbers in the Location field of your Google Calendar invite so the Zap will automatically pull the correct number from your meeting invite. Click in the To Number field and select Location from the dropdown menu.

The "To Number" field with "Location" entered in the field with the Google Calendar app logo.

Now it’s time to set up what you want your SMS message to say. Type in your message in the Message field. To add data from your previous Google Calendar step, click in the Message field and select the data you want to add from the dropdown.

You can also add media (like a video or photo) by adding a URL to the Media URL field.

The Message field with Google Calendar data and text entered in the field.

If you want to send longer messages (over 1600 characters in length), select Yes under Send Large Messages?

Click Continue and test your action. When you click Test & Review or Test & Continue, Zapier will send an SMS message to the number you typed in.

If you’d rather skip the test, just click Skip Test.

A test screen that shows the Zapier app logo connected to the Twilio app logo.

If your test looks good, you’re now ready to use your Zap!

Stay on top of meetings with SMS reminders

Adding an automatic SMS reminder for upcoming meetings to your daily life can help you seamlessly wrangle a busy calendar. Plus, it can increase the turn-out for your sales calls.

Try it for yourself. Discover how this Zap can help you stay one step ahead of upcoming meetings:

Wix vs. Weebly: How to choose a website builder in 2022

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This article was sourced from by MOZ.

A professional website is a must-have, whether you’re a small business or an independent professional. Website builders allow you to easily build and customize your website without hiring a developer or a designer.

Which app you choose will depend on a variety of factors, including your business model, budget, and customer base. Here, we’ll compare two of the most easy-to-use website builders available: Wix and Weebly.

Common Features and What We Looked For

Wix and Weebly both offer easy drag-and-drop interfaces at an affordable starting price point, with the ability to add features, functions, and capability as your business grows. Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages to each, and here we’ll compare them based on a number of factors. Click to jump to the sections that are most important to you, or jump ahead to our feature comparison table.

Initial Setup

Weebly gets you up and running more quickly, but Wix allows for more complex requirements.

Both website builders offer the option of guided setup “wizards” that are designed to help you pre-select the best templates, themes, and settings depending on the nature of your business.

Weebly’s setup is absolutely quicker and easier. First, you’ll answer a yes/no question: Are you building an eCommerce site? If your website will include an online store, Weebly will then guide you through some basic steps to set up your eCommerce infrastructure, such as adding products and deciding what kinds of payments you’ll accept. (Note: eCommerce features are part of a premium package.) You’ll then be asked to select a Weebly website theme and a domain name, at which point you’ll go directly to the website editor to begin customizing your website.

Selecting a domain name in Weebly

Wix’s setup takes longer, but it’s mostly due to additional customization options and larger number of themes, settings, and templates that Wix offers. As opposed to a binary eCommerce/no eCommerce wizard, Wix presents you with a variety of premade templates and settings based on the purpose of your website (e.g., restaurant, online portfolio, events company, etc.).

Once you’ve taken care of that, you have two options: (1) Use Wix ADI to create your website for you based on your answers to a series of questions. (2) Select a domain name and go straight to the website editor to customize the site yourself.

Templates, Themes, and Images

Wix offers more templates and styling options, but it requires more manual labor to control.

The look and feel of a website is crucial, which is why templates, themes, and images should weigh heavily on your decision.

Both builders come with a variety of themes to choose from, based on the purpose of your website. And while many of Weebly’s themes are geared toward specific functions within those subsets, they tend to be much more general than those offered by Wix. For example, Weebly offers Business, Portfolio, Personal, Event, and Other categories.

Wix, on the other hand, offers much more granular themes within each category, like Restaurants, Pet Stores, Freelance Photographers, and so on. With over 500 templates (compared to Weebly’s <100), no matter what kind of business or use case you need your website to serve, Wix likely has a pre-built template designed specifically for that purpose.

Wix templates

That being said, Weebly’s themes are visually attractive out-of-the-box without much customization. Plus, you can easily switch to another theme while editing your Weebly website by clicking Themes in the website editor and selecting a new one. Weebly will automatically fit the design elements into place with minimal effort on your part. The same goes for adding, removing, or editing images or galleries. Weebly auto-sizes your images to fit the gallery, and only offers one type of image slideshow option.

With Wix, on the other hand, if you make significant changes to your website and decide to switch templates mid-stream, you’ll have to readjust content to the new theme you’ve selected. Expect it to be a much more time-consuming process, as there are many more drag-and-drop design elements to manage. Having said that, Wix has significantly more options in terms of how images are presented. You can select square or diamond shaped galleries, rotate images at various intervals, and even perform basic image editing tasks like cropping and shading from within Wix.

Website Editor

Wix is more flexible, but Weebly does the heavy lifting for you.

Where the rubber meets the road for a lot of people looking for a website builder is the overall user interface and user experience. This is especially true for beginners, who need to get started quickly and easily while building capabilities and adding features and functionality over time.

There are two key elements to how most users interface with Wix and Weebly:

  1. The dashboard. This is your website hub; it’s where you’ll access different parts of your website and adjust settings.

  2. The editor. The spot where you’re actually designing your website.

Wix’s and Weebly’s dashboards are both fairly intuitive—no huge advantage of one over the other. The differences are clearer in the website editor.

In Wix, you can add a page, change the background, or customize the layout in two or three clicks. But the sheer number of options offered in the Wix editor might be overwhelming for novices—in short, Wix allows you to select where and how to place certain design elements. For example, you can resize buttons and adjust boundaries to headers, footer, and sidebar areas (functions that are limited in Weebly). It certainly requires more time investment, but the level of customization that can be achieved with Wix exceeds Weebly in most areas.

Wix editor

In Weebly, design elements are clearly spelled out in the sidebar. Weebly operates almost strictly on a responsive, drag-and-drop model: Whenever you place a new element into your site, the rest of the page automatically adjusts to the content. For example, if you decide to insert an image gallery at the top of your homepage, the rest of the content will automatically slide down to make room. This can save large amounts of time and energy, but it also limits your customization options.

Weebly editor

Unlike a platform like WordPress, both Wix and Weebly have built-in security measures designed to keep all data secure, for both the user and any customers, visitors, or members of your website. They also require very little ongoing maintenance, aside from any ongoing customizations you choose to make.

Free Plans and Pricing

Wix is generally pricier, but it also offers fancier features.

Wix and Weebly each allow you to set up a functioning website for free. Both free plans offer 500MB of storage and display Wix/Weebly ads. The free versions of both services will only allow a weebly.com or wix.com subdomain, meaning your website address will be formatted like this: https://www.yourwebsite.weebly.com or https://www.yourwebsite.wix.com. If you want to ditch the suffix, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid package. So the main difference between the free plans is that, with Wix, you’ll receive access to a wider selection of templates, themes, and clipart.

Upgrading features and functionality differs quite significantly between the two services. Which pricing model or package is right for you will depend mostly on your requirements and the nature of your business. You can find the full pricing on Weebly’s pricing page and Wix’s pricing page, but the gist is that Wix offers some fancier features, like the ability to host high-bandwidth content, at a (usually) higher price point.

Blogging

Weebly is sufficient for basic site articles, while Wix is more flexible in terms of multimedia and site management.

Managing a site has become a necessity for most businesses. Gone are the days of dealing with platforms like Blogger, which was designed specifically for siteging but proved difficult to customize in the context of the website as a whole.

Wix and Weebly both include a rich text editor, with the ability to add images and embed YouTube videos. (If you want to include video or music files on your site, you’ll need to upgrade to premium versions.) Both platforms also allow users to subscribe to your site via either RSS or social media channels.

On Weebly, you can easily merge whichever site theme/template you choose with your existing website. You’ll access the site editor from the website builder, and from there, you’ll see a settings page with basic functions like number of articles displayed per page, comment moderation, social sharing buttons.

Weebly site editor

With Wix, you’ll first need to install the Wix Blog app via the Wix App market. Then you’ll have the option of eight templates to choose from and customize. Wix has a dedicated site hub, which includes more functionality than Weebly, like the ability to sort by tags and categories and view statistics about which sites have been most read over time. Wix also offers the ability to preview and edit how your site article will appear on Google search and the ability to give your site article a separate, mobile-friendly title.

Wix site hub

Analytics

Both tools offer need-to-know analytics, but Wix provides recommendations based on the data.

Wix and Weebly will both give you a basic snapshot of website activity without going into a third-party tool like Google Analytics.

With the free version of Weebly, you’ll be able to access high-level insights about your website, like number of unique visits, page views, and average page views per unique visit. You’ll need to upgrade to unlock more granular web traffic statistics like geographic visitor data and referral source, as well as advanced sales, eCommerce, and marketing insights, like abandoned cart and ad referral stats. In either case, Weebly’s insights dashboard is straightforward and easy to interpret for those who want a basic statistical picture of website activity, without getting too deep into the weeds.

Weebly analytics

With Wix, you’ll need to upgrade to premium off the bat to access website insights and analytics (currently in beta). While the information displayed on Wix analytics is similar to Weebly, Wix also provides recommendations to increase traffic based on that data. For example, Wix might look at your numbers and suggest that you share additional content on Facebook or Twitter.

alt

Lead Generation and Capture

Both tools cover the bases, but if you’re serious about SEO, a Wix premium plan is your best bet.

You’ll likely use your website to generate and capture leads and turn them to subscribers, clients, or customers. And both Wix and Weebly have built-in functions for SEO (to generate leads) and opt-in forms/pop-ups (to capture leads).

Weebly sites are designed with a sitemap, HTML formatting, and meta descriptions to improve the SEO of your site for generating traffic and leads. From the Weebly website editor, click Settings in the top menu to view your SEO options. If you upgrade to a premium plan, you’ll get more advanced functions like alt tags on images and page-specific descriptions.

And once you get people to your site, you’ll be able to capture those leads easily using Weebly’s pop-up builder. Click Marketing in the top menu of the dashboard, and select which type you want: Email Sign-up, Offer a Coupon, or Make an Announcement. Elements like required fields and CTA buttons are customizable from within the pop-up editor.

Weebly pop-up builder

Wix takes a bit more of a sophisticated (although still user-friendly) approach to SEO. With a paid Wix package, you’ll be guided by the Wix SEO Wiz, which will help you develop a comprehensive SEO plan, providing a checklist of things to do like listing your site on Google, selecting the right keywords, and optimizing your meta description. The SEO Wiz will tell you how to complete each task, then automatically guide you to the appropriate page within Wix to do so. You’ll also be able to track your SEO progress and achievements over time.

Wix offers a pop-up conversion creator and editor with pre-built templates for different CTAs (e.g., Newsletter Subscription, Fill Out Our Survey, Give Us Your Feedback). Advanced workflow rules are also available on Wix: for example, not displaying the pop-up for return visitors or disabling the pop-up on mobile devices.

Wix SEO Wiz

eCommerce

The more products and SKUs you offer, the better off you are with Wix, but Weebly is simpler.

Not everyone building a new website will be selling goods or services and taking payments online. But if you do—or plan to in the future—you’ll need to consider the eCommerce capabilities of each platform to determine which is going to help you maximize profitability.

Weebly offers a few packages for online stores. The $25/month Business plan allows for unlimited products and checkout from your domain, and it removes the standard three percent transaction fee normally charged by Weebly. The setup and onboarding process for eCommerce on Weebly is great for beginners: If you select the online store option while setting up your website, Weebly will automatically guide you through all of the necessary steps, from entering all of your products to setting up payment and shipping information. You’ll be able to add products, check order status, and manage customer reviews all from the My Store page, which is accessible from the main editor menu.

Weebly My Store page

Wix business plans are a bit more eCommerce friendly than Weebly, with no transaction fees on any of its paid plans as well as features like the ability to manage groups of products as seasonal collections. For businesses that sell services instead of products, Wix offers advanced options like booking management and calendars. Any emails you receive from customers regarding your products or services can be managed directly from an email inbox within Wix’s eCommerce dashboard.

Wix’s setup is simple: You’ll select from a variety of storefront templates, which will allow you to add, subtract, and change products or services for sale via a drag-and-drop interface in the Wix editor. It’s also slightly less difficult to maintain than Weebly, as it allows for easier uploading, storage, and editing of images and galleries. It’s a bit more complex than Weebly, but if you’re looking to sell a product or service, that complexity and customization might be beneficial in the end.

alt

Mobile Design

Weebly automatically adjusts your design for mobile, but Wix allows you more customization.

No matter what kind of website you run, you’ll need your website to be mobile-friendly and responsive to the device that your visitors use.

While Weebly allows you to preview how your website will look on a mobile device, Wix allows you to separately edit the mobile version of your site. It may sound like an obvious advantage at first, but it does add complexity to the process.

With Wix, a well-crafted site on desktop may require significant adjustments on the mobile designer. The more you tweak, adjust, and customize your site in the Wix editor, the more you’re unwittingly changing how the site looks on mobile. Don’t be surprised if a few design elements look out of place, especially if you’ve made a lot of customizations to the desktop site.

Wix mobile design

Which App Should I Use?

Weebly tends to be more user-friendly, while Wix offers a more robust set of features and functionality. If you’re a novice, freelancer, or solopreneur who needs a professional website up and running in short order, then Weebly is the best option. While Wix is more feature rich in the areas of design, eCommerce, siteging, and mobile design, it won’t “autocorrect” for you as often as Weebly does. But if you run a complex business or online store with a large number of products and high transaction volume, Wix is the better choice. It allows you to geek out more about web design and will scale easily with your business.

The 4 best read it later apps in 2022

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This post was sourced from by MOZ.

Reading things online is more interesting than most jobs. It’s a big problem, and read it later apps are the solution.

Make your read it later app work for you

If you stumble upon an interesting post, or if someone sends one to you, you can send the post to a reading queue. Then, when you’re done being productive, you can read everything you saved, all in one place. Even better, the posts are presented cleanly—all the sidebars and ads that clutter the modern web are stripped away. You can even read offline, if need be.

We considered over 20 read it later apps, and after extensive testing, here are the four best.

If you’re just looking for a bookmarking app, which stores links to posts but doesn’t let you read them from within the app, here are our picks for the best bookmark and archiving apps.

What makes a great read it later app?

How we evaluate and test apps

All of our best apps roundups are written by humans who’ve spent much of their careers using, testing, and writing about software. We spend dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it’s intended to be used and evaluating it against the criteria we set for the category. We’re never paid for placement in our posts from any app or for links to any site—we value the trust readers put in us to offer authentic evaluations of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, read the full rundown of how we select apps to feature on the Zapier main site.

Read it later apps do one thing: store posts you intend to read later. This is different from bookmarking apps, which simply store links to those posts, and different from note-taking apps, which can be used for clipping posts but aren’t primarily designed with reading in mind.

So, what makes the best dedicated read it later app? I’m glad you asked. To us, the best read it later apps:

  • Let you save posts in one click. Ideally there’s a browser extension and a mobile app, but bookmarklets work in a pinch.

  • Download those posts for offline reading on your phone, tablet, eReader, and (ideally) computer for offline reading.

  • Offer custom typography and color schemes. At the very least, there should be both a dark and a light mode, but the more options the better.

  • Make it easy to organize your archive of posts. Tags and folders are both great, and ideally you can also highlight things for future reference.

  • Work on as many platforms as possible. You need to be able to save an post on one device and read it on another, seamlessly.

We tested the most popular apps on the market using these criteria. Two—Pocket and Instapaper—rose to the top for all criteria, and we included two other apps whose unique features make up for the lack of breadth.

Pocket is the most feature-complete read it later app on the market. There are apps for every browser and mobile operating system you’ve ever heard of (and a few that you haven’t). A surprising number of apps also have a Pocket integration built in, thanks to a robust API. You won’t have any trouble sending posts to Pocket.

You also won’t have any problem reading those posts—they’re extracted cleanly and show in a clutter-free environment. You can also control how your posts look: there’s a dark, paper, and light color scheme, along with a couple of font choices in the free version.

Pocket is built for reading, but it can also read to you using a surprisingly lifelike text-to-speech engine. Tap the audio button in the mobile app, and your phone will read posts to you. The voices are passable, if a little robotic, and you can adjust the playback speed if need be. It’s the best way to turn an post into a podcast short of hiring voice actors, and perfect if you want to cook dinner or go for a walk while catching up on your reading.

There are also plenty of options for sorting your reading list after reading. The main reading list is meant for posts you haven’t read yet—you can archive things you’re done reading, keeping this list as an inbox of posts for later. You can mark archived posts as favorites for future reference, then organize them using tags. You can also highlight key phrases as you read, allowing you to reference them later.

Want to do more with your posts? Connect Pocket to your favorite apps through Zapier. You can create automated workflows that automatically send links from tweets you like over to Pocket, or even send every post in an RSS feed over. Those are just examples—you can customize your workflow with thousands of apps.

Best read it later app for speed reading

Instapaper (Web, iOS, Android, Kindle)

Instapaper screenshot

Instapaper, more than any app I can think of, is all about simplicity. There’s not a lot of color or graphics in the user interface—the focus is entirely on text. This is an app designed with readers in mind, which makes sense given what it’s for.

Saving posts is simple thanks to extensions for every major browser, and there’s a bookmark you can use if that doesn’t work for you. Reading happens in the mobile apps for Android and iOS, both of which support offline reading, or on the website if you’re on your computer. The reading experience is clean, with custom font and color choices.

The unique feature here is the speed reading button, which flashes one word at a time in quick succession. You can adjust the speed, if you want, but the idea is that this forces you to keep reading in a way that results in getting through posts more quickly. It’s interesting but probably not for everyone.

There are also plenty of tools for organizing your posts. The Home screen is meant to contain posts you haven’t read yet, and you can archive posts when you’re done. There’s a folder for posts you “liked” by default, and you can also add as many folders as you like for sorting posts by topic.

There are a few features offered by Instapaper that Pocket doesn’t have. You can highlight quotes in an post, as in Pocket, but you can also add notes, which Pocket doesn’t offer. You can also browse all of your highlights and notes in one place, without having to open the posts again. This makes Instapaper a great way to review your thoughts after reading. Instapaper also offers built-in support for sending posts to a Kindle eReader. If any of these features appeal to you, Instapaper is probably the app for you.

You can automate your reading workflows with Instapaper’s Zapier integrations, which let you do things like automatically send posts from tweets you like over to Instapaper or send every post from an RSS feed to your reading list. You can customize these workflows to use your favorite apps.

There are two clear frontrunners in this space, if you haven’t noticed. Be sure to check out our Instapaper vs. Pocket showdown to learn more about how these two apps match up.

Best read it later app for using your inbox as your reading list

EmailThis (Web)

EmailThis screenshot in Gmail

The problem with most read it later apps is that you need to remember to open the app and actually read things. EmailThis solves this problem by putting posts in a place you already look regularly: your email inbox.

Install the browser extension or use the bookmarklet to save posts. There’s no website or app you can use to browse things you’ve saved—instead, the posts are sent to your email address.

This isn’t for everyone: lots of people would rather not fill their email inbox with stuff to read on top of everything else. But think about it: email newsletters are an increasingly common way to keep up with the news, and mobile devices are set up to download emails for offline reading already. Why not also use your inbox to keep track of long-form posts you want to read?

There’s not much in the way of custom font choices, outside of how you’ve configured your email app. And there’s no built-in option for sorting your posts after you’ve read them, although you could use dedicated folders or labels in your inbox to sort posts after you’re done reading them. But these downsides are potentially outweighed by simplicity—you can keep track of things you want to read without having to remember to check yet another app. That’s valuable.

EmailThis pricing: Free for up to 20 posts a month; Premium for $19/year with the ability to add notes and unlimited posts.

Best read it later app for Apple loyalists

Safari Reading List (Mac, iOS)

Safari Reading List, our pick for the best read it later app for Apple loyalists

Safari is the default browser on Apple devices, and it comes with a built-in reading list that automatically syncs between all of your devices. It’s not the most advanced read it later service, granted, but you can use it right now without having to install any software. Just tap the + button in the address bar to add an post on your Mac, or on mobile, find the Add to Reading List option in the Share menu. Articles can optionally be saved for offline reading, and using Safari’s Reader Mode, you can customize the colors and fonts.

Articles are listed chronologically, and there’s not really any way to organize them other than archiving. There’s a search feature, though, so you should be able to find old posts easily enough. It’s not the most robust tool, but it works.

Safari Reading List Pricing: Free on Apple devices

Other apps you can use to read it later

Read it later apps aren’t the only tools for the job—they’re just the ones that are built with reading in mind. Having said that, some other categories of apps could work for you. Here are a few worth thinking about.

  • Note-taking apps like OneNote and Evernote offer web clippers, which extract posts and save them for future reference. The downside: they’re not designed with the reading experience in mind. Still, they might work for you, particularly if you wanted to mark up and edit the posts anyway. Check out our list of the best note-taking apps if you’re curious.

  • Bookmarking apps like Pinboard and Google Bookmarks can also be used to keep track of posts you want to read. They don’t extract your posts for offline reading, or offer custom fonts and color schemes, but they make up for that with organizational features. Check out our list of the best bookmark apps to learn more.

  • Amazon offers a free Send to Kindle tool, which sends posts to the popular eInk devices as well as the Kindle app. We think Kindle users are better off using Instapaper for this, but Amazon’s offering is simpler if sending posts to your Kindle is all you care about. It’s not a complete read it later service, and it doesn’t seem to be actively maintained, but it works.

Where did the idea for apps like this come from? Check out our interview with Pocket finder Nate Weiner to learn more.

4 ways to fight work burnout with automation

SEO and General Business tutorials and tips.

This post was sourced from by MOZ.

Even with all the talk about work-life balance, a lot of people still struggle with it—even more so if you work remotely. According to a Gallup survey, 74% of employees in June 2021 said they experienced burnout on the job at least sometimes. And this isn’t just an American problem; it’s even in the World Health Organization handbook of medical diagnoses.

Simple strategies can minimize burnout, but it’s hard to establish healthier habits when “rise and grind” culture has made us feel guilty for taking a vacation. If you find yourself high on will but low on power, try out an automatic workflow—which we call a Zap—to gently nudge you to healthier work habits.

We’ve included some pre-made workflows throughout this piece to get you started. Just click on the button next to the name of a Zap you’d like to try, and we’ll guide you through customizing it. It only takes a few minutes. You can read more about setting up Zaps here.

Set your schedule

You might set a schedule for yourself in your mind, but it’s easy to blur those boundaries, especially when you’re working from home. “Just five more minutes to send this last email,” you tell yourself, and suddenly you’ve worked an extra hour. Repeat the cycle too much and you’ll eventually burn the candle at both ends.

It’s helpful to make your work schedule public for your team. Not only will they be more aware of booking meetings within your working hours, but in some cases, they can keep you accountable if you’re working late.

Tip: Set your working hours in your preferred calendar to avoid getting booked for meetings off the clock. Google Calendar and Outlook Calendar have built-in settings for working hours.

You can keep your team in the loop automatically by creating a workflow to set your Slack status to show when you’re outside of your working hours or set it according to your work calendar. This will alert your colleagues when you’re offline or in a meeting.

Give yourself a break

For whatever reason, productivity used to be measured by how long you were chained to your desk. But we know better now, thanks to scientific research that discovered regular breaks are good for focus. Yet, some of us still fight this ingrained perception that if you take a break from your work, you’re not working hard enough. If that sounds like you, try some of these workflows to ease yourself into a regular break schedule.

Go to lunch

When I worked in a grocery store, we had our mandated lunch break and two 15-minute breaks per eight-hour shift, which everyone took. But when I got my first job out of college, I often ate at my desk, and my breaks consisted of walking around the building and hiding in the bathroom.

Yet, so many others work through lunch, take a late lunch, or skip breaks. Though my grocery job was more physically demanding, I would argue that my mental clarity was better because I had mandated times where I stepped away from the work. (The olive samples were pretty clutch, too.)

First, block off time on your calendar every day to step away for lunch. It doesn’t have to be the precise time, but a general ballpark will do. You’ll find that you won’t get booked for meetings as much.

If you try out the earlier Zap connecting your calendar to your Slack status, it’ll take care of notifying your team when you’re chowing down. When you need an extra nudge, you can also set up a daily lunch bot that reminds you to step away and eat. You can set this up to message you in your work chat tool or even through text message.

Take short breaks

Now that we have lunch taken care of, what about the other breaks? Productivity techniques like the Pomodoro method have built-in breaks because you need them to perform your best.

If a regimented method like Pomodoro isn’t your thing, try these Zaps that let you create your own break bot to trigger at a certain time each day, or after a specific meeting.

How you spend your break is up to you. You might find that you need to take a short walk to recharge your focus, or maybe you need to get up and stretch. You can also encourage your team to get in on the action by sending these reminders to a channel in your work chat tool.

Bonus: Take your vacation time

I admit: Like many workers, I’m really bad about taking time off. I wouldn’t call myself a workaholic, but over the years I developed a habit of stockpiling vacation days when I worked at places with finite paid time off policies.

If you’re like me, you need a reminder every once in a while to take a day off. You can configure any of the above Zaps using Schedule by Zapier to run quarterly by adding a filter step—available under our paid plans.

Here’s how to do it: When you set up your filter step, choose the specific months you’d like the Zap to run by using its numbered date format, such as 1 for January. Read more about how to set up a filter step.

A screenshot of a filter step in the Zap Editor. The Zap is filtering by date months matching a specified number.

Set boundaries

I love telling people no. I know that sounds awful, but protecting my time is my favorite work habit I’ve adopted over the years. Texts unread? Yes, please. Ignoring emails off-hours? You bet.

However, this isn’t easy for a lot of people, especially when some jobs require us to be “on” all the time—and I’ve been there too. You might think, “I can’t ignore emails, I’m expected to check them all the time!” Consider this: Is your boss modeling behavior that gives you the impression that you need to check email at all hours, or is it really an explicit requirement of your job? If you’re not sure, ask! You might be surprised by what your supervisor has to say.

Snooze notifications when you can

If your organization uses Slack, turn on the automatic Do Not Disturb setting. Click your organization’s name in the top-left corner, then click Preferences.Scroll down the Notifications settings until you see Notification Schedule. By default, notifications are allowed every day from 12:00 a.m. to midnight, but you can adjust to only allow notifications during your regular workday.

A screenshot of Slack

If you need to turn on Do Not Disturb for a portion of your workday, you can either click your name in the upper right corner, then go to Pause notifications and select the time frame you need, or type /dnd 30 min in any channel to shut your notifications off for a specified time period. You can swap 30 min out with any time frame you need.

Learn more about how to stay focused on Slack.

Filter what you need

Email accounts, however, have varying degrees of snoozification. Microsoft Outlook, Outlook 365, and Gmail have Do Not Disturb or Away features.

But there may be times where you have to monitor your email after you’ve clocked out. If you only need to watch for emails from one or two people, create a Zap to get text alerts when you receive an email from a specific search string. This allows you to bypass refreshing your email on mobile frequently.

You could also create your own autoresponder, which can be useful if certain people require a response. Zapier can send a reply to new emails based on search criteria or label.

It’s hard to fight against a culture that rewards burnout. You don’t have to go against the grain alone, though. Give some of these workflows a try and set yourself up for a healthier, and ultimately, more rewarding work life.
