Jarvee focuses on automating social networks.

It works on many sites such as Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, tumblr, YouTube and Google+. It is primarily aimed at entrepreneurs wishing to develop their business but also at bloggers and anyone else wishing to develop their visibility.
Jarvee offers you 5 days of free trial during which you can use all the features of the program.
Once the software is downloaded, you can automate various actions on all your social networks. For example, you can schedule publications on all your social networks by choosing a specific date and time.
The Jarvee robot can also automatically track a number of accounts, as well as liken and comment on publications. Jarvee can even send private messages automatically and add friends to Facebook.
The principle is that a certain percentage of the people you love will return the favor, which will increase your reach. However, Instagram, for example, has protections against such practices.

Zapier is one of the best tools for automating tasks.
It not only automates your social networks as Jarvee does, but it also supports more than 1000 applications and software!
Zapier’s operation is simple: when it detects an action, it automatically starts another one. This is what the software calls a “zap”.
There are several pre-programmed zaps that will allow you to perform tasks automatically. For example, Zapier can detect emails you receive with an attachment, and if it is programmed to do so, it will save these attachments in a specific folder on your Google Drive or on Dropbox.
You can even add a third step: when files are uploaded to Dropbox, you receive an alert via Slack!
Once you have a good understanding of how Zapier works, you can create your zaps from scratch. Zapier will ensure you increased productivity of your business by leaving you the most important tasks.
You will no longer have to perform the many daunting tasks that wasted your time. Please note that there is a free version of Zapier that allows you to automate simple tasks on a limited number of applications.
The premium version costs $20 per month and offers the ability to perform multiple tasks on more than 1000 applications. If you hesitate between the two versions, you can test the premium version for 14 days for free.
- An almost infinite number of possible automations
- Supports more than 1000 software and applications for the paid version

A webinar is a webinar where you present your company, product, service or training live.
The goal is to sell your product. The real added value of such a process is that spectators can interact with the organizer via a chat or surveys.
People registering for your webinar receive a notification to know the date of the next webinar, and are notified a few minutes before it begins. However, there is a problem with webinars.
You will need to book one or more hours each week to organize them. Often, you will have to repeat yourself and answer the same types of questions from your potential customers.
That’s where EverWebinar will help by going beyond a simple webinar. This innovative application will automate webinars. The principle is as follows. First, you record your Webinar under live conditions, interacting with participants as you would with a traditional webinar.
In a second step, you upload the video to EverWebinar and schedule its replay on a specific date. People registering to attend your webinar will not be able to watch the video on demand webinar.
Conversely, they will expect to attend a live webinar. They will not know that the video they are watching has been recorded, which will involve them more.
Indeed, the behaviour of viewers is different depending on whether they are watching live or on-demand video.
It has been proven that they stay much longer in front of a live feed. However, the more time they spend in front of your recorded webinar, the more likely they are to buy your product.
- Designed by the creators of WebinarJam
- Creates a high engagement rate with minimal effort
- Many statistics on the behaviour of participants are available
- Non-compatible webinar applications
- A prohibitive price for small businesses
