Happy World Productivity Day: You Won’t Believe the Earliest Text Expansion Ever! 😱📚

Happy World Productivity Day Matt!

Today’s the say where we should sit back and reflect on how much time we’ve saved automating the mundane.

I was watching something on YouTube the other day and it hit me  When would you say was the earliest implementation of the idea of HotStrings / Text Expansion?    (think about the concept, not “code”)

Some of you might be thinking about using text expansion on your smart phone.  Nope!

Others might be thinking about the AutoCorrect in MS Office.   Not even close!

During this video in 1991 Bill Gates demonstrates “using a macro” for sending text but that still is way too recent!

The first time anyone used the general concept: Create a tool that they can be used repeatedly that will send text without writing it out was   (drum roll please)


That’s right.  It goes back to when Johannes Gutenberg created the Gutenberg press.

At first this might seem like a joke but think about it:

Before the press, Monk’s had to hand-copy every book, article, letter.

Just like using HotStrings, the press allowed someone to spend a little time up front setting up a tool that made sure the “source” was correct and then mass use that tool over and over picking up amazing amounts of time in both speed and accuracy.

It also allowed the few people that were literate to let others “crank out” the information, reliably, and light-years faster that doing it by hand.

Most importantly, from the human perspective, it freed up people from some horribly mundane tasks!

As you probably know, the Gutenberg press revolutionized the world

To some extent HotStrings are even MORE powerful!  They can be easily configured by virtually anyone and ready to use in any Windows program!

I hope you’re having an amazing day!   Don’t forget to spread the word about today being World Productivity Day.   We need to get people to recognize productivity is an important part of their life!

P.S.  The sale ends tonight!  Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity and bonus.

Celebrate World Productivity Day 40% off and $72 bonus for first 15 purchasers

World Productivity day is June 20th

I find it extremely sad that World Productivity is not a well celebrated day.   ☹  Especially in a world where AI / Chat GPT is threatening to replace people in their jobs.

I think most people that come to AutoHotkey do so because they want to be more productive.  Sure, there are plenty of other reasons to use AutoHotkey however the #1 driving force is we want a simpler / faster way to do the same thing we’re already doing.

Learning AutoHotkey is, by far, one of the best ways to be more productive!  As I’ve said before

Knowledge is power;  Automation knowledge is a “super-power”💪

Commmon Objections

Here are some of the top reasons why people don’t purchase a course and what we’d say if we were speaking with you

  • I don’t have time: We’re all busy but the only real way to get ahead of the grind is to invest in yourself learning things that will save you time. AutoHotkey takes a little time up-front but will save you a ton of time in the long run.
  • I can learn what I want from the documentation, AHK forum, Reddit, and YouTube. While this is true, AutoHotkey is a vast language with a ton of options.  Our courses give you a clear path to learning and are built for all skill levels.
  • I don’t do redundant tasks: Humans are great at some things but very poor at others.  Recognizing patterns in what we’re doing is one of the things we do miserably.  Even we spot things that we still do daily that can be automated…
  • I don’t want to be a programmer: This is why AutoHotkey is an amazing choice for you. AutoHotkey is, by far, the simplest to pickup.  The language is very intuitive and easy to use.  I see our clients doing amazing things and yet they have every little “programming” knowledge.
  • I don’t have any background in programming so this is beyond me: The truth is, most things we teach are geared towards people with very little computer experience.  We create courses that are super-easy to follow.  Besides, we offer a 200% money back guarantee so you have nothing to risk!
  • Making money off AutoHotkey is against their policies: 100% false❗ Chris Mallett was very clear that he didn’t want AutoHotkey.com to be a commercial site however there are zero restrictions of making money off AutoHotkey.

Joe, Isaias, Irfan and team

P.S.  The sale is real as is the deadline (midnight June 20th).   Learning AutoHotkey is a great way to live better and ensure job security.  In today’s crazy world, where AI is taking jobs left and right, being productive is more important than ever!   And the bonus, for the first 15 people that purchase will be gone before you know it!  Act now to take advantage of this amazing deal!

Happy World Productivity Day 2022❗

World Productivity DayDid you know that today is “World Productivity day”? My guess is you didn’t. ☹

Between Covid and Inflation, the workplace is in a terrible state! Years ago companies would pay for their employees to be trained however, more often than not, now it’s on us (the worker bees🐝) to level-up our own skills.

How certain are you about your job security? Does your manager know how productive you are? More importantly, does your manager’s boss know? I was never one to “toot my own horn” however, if you want to keep your job, and be on the path to advancing, you need to make sure people know what a rockstar you are!

One way you can do that is by investing in yourself. Have you done as I’ve asked and blocked weekly time on your calendar to “level up”? If so, then I have some special coupons for you! In honor of World Productivity day, I’m making special coupons for the lowest prices. These coupons will be good through June 25th.
