Zap Hacks: 5 Ways to Save Time and Money with Zapier

Think of Zapier as a bridge between two different systems, And imagine setting up automations that save you hours of administrative time, or streamline your sales process.

In this session, you’ll discover 5 Zaps.

  1. Controlling your own data is crucial, now more than ever. See how to setup a zap to add subscriber data into your email service provider, including custom fields — so you can send targeted emails with added information.
  2. What if your email service suddenly locked you out, or worse, had a catastrophic outage or went out of business? When was the last time you backed up your list? Create a free zap to keep your email subscribers safe and ready to import somewhere else without problems.
  3. When you ask for someone’s email address in exchange for a reader magnet, how do you check to be sure it’s a good address? Don’t risk your reputation (or pay for subscribers that aren’t valid!) by running them automatically through an email validation before they’re added to your email list
  4. Send social media updates using a blog post or Google Sheet! Post to multiple social media channels automatically, with images, links, and calls to action.
  5. The mother of all zaps! From a simple form on a landing page, add the contact to your email service, create a WooCommerce account, send a download, and start a subscription! Create your own version of serialized fiction delivery like Kindle Vella or Substack!
