Introduction to Zapier Integrations

How to integrate and automate your processes for sales, marketing, and operations with Zapier

What is a Zapier Integration?

Most businesses use different tools and software in their day-to-day operations and rely on data from multiple sources to make decisions (CRM, email marketing platform, analytics, etc.).

Most businesses also usually require a lot of data entry and manual admin work to keep running smoothly and will often struggle with running out of resources in these areas as they try to grow.

Zapier helps solve BOTH of these challenges (and a lot more).

Zapier allows your business to operate more efficiently and save time on manual admin work. It’s a tool for building customizable integrations and workflow automations that connect different apps and software to build fully customizable automations, called “zaps.”

Sync important data between platforms automatically and in real-time. Create workflow triggers that automatically run a particular process when a specific condition is met (such as automating a thank-you email after your sales call or automatically passing contact info from your marketers to your sales team) and other repetitive tasks without needing to code.

Creating a ‘Zap’ is simple, but creating these mini-automations can have a powerful effect on the streamlining of your organization.

Steps to Create Mini Automations

  1. Choose the two apps you want to connect (from over 3,000 connected apps!)
  2. Set the ‘trigger’ for the process to run (what criteria will cause it to start running)
  3. Select the output action you want to be performed (from a list of options associated with the apps you selected)
  4. That’s it! There are some additional fields you’ll fill in along the way, and there are additional things you can do with Zapier (for example, adding multiple steps to your automation), but this is the main idea to get you started.

You could sit down today and automate thank you and confirmation messages.

Or automatically sync records and analytics between several platforms

Or send automatic follow-ups to leads that came through one channel (such as Facebook ads) through another channel (automatically send them an email three days later, then a Linkedin connection request two days after that, etc.)

And automate your entire client onboarding process!

The options are endless.

Zapier Integration and Automation Benefits

Why should you use them?

Zapier is a powerful and flexible way to streamline the operations of your business.

Zapier integrations and automations can help you…

Save Time by Automating Repetitive Tasks

The overall operations of your business are made up of series of smaller processes that you run, some manually and some not as much. Creating integrations and automations with Zapier can significantly increase the efficiency of everyone who works in your organization. One way Zapier does this is by allowing you to automate repetitive, time-consuming tasks.

Use Zapier to automatically add a lead to your CRM, or send them a thank-you or followup, or notify your sales team of a new prospect.

Sync and Organize Data from Multiple Sources without Data Entry

Another way Zapier saves you time (and headache) is through its ability to eliminate the majority of the need for data entry work. You can create ‘zaps’ to do the manual admin tasks that involve moving or adding information, whether it’s between people on your team (such as transferring the details of a deal from salesperson to project manager) or between systems (adding leads from paid ads to your CRM) or even between systems and people (notify your sales team every time there’s a new prospect via your lead gen survey).

You can use Zapier to streamline a process involving time-consuming tasks or data entry work, which generally results in dramatic productivity and efficiency improvements.

As an additional side benefit, this also prevents your people from constantly switching between multiple systems or spending a lot of time tracking down the data they need for their work.

Connect Tools Together that You Couldn’t Otherwise Integrate.

You might want to connect tools that you use that don’t have a direct integration. Often, Zapier can be a workaround for this, because many platforms do integrate with Zapier, even if they don’t have many other integrations. If the tool integrates with Zapier, you can use Zapier to connect it to any other tool that Zapier also connects to. Using Zapier in this way also means that you can build automations that you might not directly offered as a feature of the tool you are using.

Do more with less people

Eliminating or automating repetitive, manual, time-consuming tasks reduces your need for staff in these areas. This means you can do more with the same amount of people.

Do this is especially important as you scale (staffing is often a major constraint on growth) because an automation scales with you, without needing additional people. This means your business can do more over time as it growth, with far less people that it would otherwise need to operate.

Improve the accuracy and consistency of your operations

Human error costs you money. When you reduce the amount of manual admin work, you also reduce the possibilities for error…meaning you increase your overall accuracy while also freeing your team’s time to do more of what they love.

Upgrade (and automate) your pipelines (for sales, client onboarding, etc.)

Whether it’s the pipeline you have for your sales process, or for bringing in new employees, or onboarding a new client after the sale is closed, Zapier can be a great tool for 1) building a better pipeline (greater consistency and faster turnaround times) and 2) streamlining your pipelines with automation, allowing them to handle more people with the same process. This will also help ensure you don’t have essential people or deals slipping through the cracks!
