Welcome to BuiltOnAir, a podcast and video series about all things Airtable. Each episode, we talk with someone active in the Airtable community to discuss their experiences and showcase an interesting way they’ve used Airtable in their work.
In today’s episode, we speak with Abby Spyker: Co-Founder and CEO of Northwest Media Collective, an award-winning web and marketing agency based in Vancouver, WA.
With a degree in Photography and Digital Media, Abby followed her passion for problem-solving and founded Northwest Media Collective to help others to find simple solutions to their digital needs. With an emphasis on understanding the big picture, Abby and her team develop in-depth scopes of work for their clients; and Airtable has been a big help.
Abby shares a few sample bases that truly demonstrate the versatility of Airtable. Not only does she use it for the day-to-day operations of her business, but in her home life as well. She first shares with us her Babysitting Tracker, where her babysitter can submit via an online form her hours spent babysitting, and how many kids she was watching. Abby is then able to easily see how much she owes at the end of each week.
Next, Abby shows us her High/Low Estimator, where she has emulated the estimating tools found in some project management systems such as LiquidPlanner. She is able to enter the low and high ends of a time frame for a particular task and calculate the price for each scenario.
Last, we check out an example of a project plan Abby created using Airtable’s page designer blocks. She works around the one-page limitation by using one block for each page and ends up with a beautifully laid out scope of work.
