One thing I like to do in December is review my expenses, switch things from yearly to monthly, and see what I can change.
This year I decided to switch Zapier from yearly to monthly and learned they charge an obnoxious 33% more because of it.
Combine that with a recent episode of the Automators podcast that covers Make, and I’ve decided to try switching completely to Make from Zapier.
Evaluation and Plan
I did a quick evaluation last week and saw it supports most of the apps I use in Zapier, and there are other alternatives for the ones I don’t use.
I tested the waters over the weekend by converting one of my most crucial Zaps to a Make Scenario, and it worked.
So throughout January, I’m going to see just how much of my operation I can move to Make. If all goes well, my last day with Zapier (at least as my primary automation platform) will be January 31st.
