Zapier Aggregated Reviews
Zapier is a life saver! I use it the most for automating notifications for my whole team.
Basically, what I’ve learned in the last week is if your business has any inbound form submission then see if there is a way to have it save additionally to a Google Sheet, because from there Zapier could automatically create new Streak boxes based on what was submitted.
Example: Web form with the fields: First name, last name, email, and phone. Instead of manually creating boxes and having a person input that data, Zapier can easily apply those fields to your CRM so it’s already built out. Additionally, fields can be combined, so even though ‘First name’ and ‘Last name’ are separate inputs, they can be merged into a single Streak Column combining the two.
Zapier does have a parser, but for greater accuracy I’ve found it works far better with a spreadsheet.
Google sheets is always a good starting point until you determine your final needs. And you can link to shopify through zapier if you want some automation.
Thanks for this. I’ve been meaning to research Zapier to see if/how it could help me.
To be clear, is every entry in this list a relatively unique product/service? Or do some of them essentially do the same thing? For example, from their descriptions, you could interpret that Zapier and Zoho do the same thing:
Zapier: Connect the apps you use everyday to automate your work and be more productive. 1000+ apps and easy integrations. Zoho Flow: Automate business workflows by connecting your apps with Zoho Flow. Build smart integrations to break the information silos in your business.
Awesome! And what a coincidence. I was using Zapier and Integromat yesterday which are really cool but very limited with the free plan.
Zapier: Connect the apps you use everyday to automate your work and be more productive. 1000+ apps and easy integrations.
– 100 actions/month
– 5 active sequences
– 15 minute interval
Damn, that looks like a good alternative but i need it to be able to talk to whmcs so i’m kinda locked in with zapier
Easy. First, it’ll depend on how you want to want to forward the jobs to them. Email or SMS?
Use Zapier to look through Gmail for incoming emails matching a certain string, e.g. if your job emails start with “Booking: ” then filter for that. Have the action from Zapier set to forward the email to a predefined list of contacts. If you’d prefer to send an SMS, use Twilio as the action.
That’s two different tasks. The easy one is 1 hour before. Let’s say you’re using Google Calendar for your scheduling. You’d have one calendar called “Scheduling.” When you add jobs to the calendar, add the cleaner’s name in either the event title, or the description. Here’s how the structure would look in Zapier:
– Use the Google Calendar trigger, for 1 hour before an event starts
– Limit the search term to the cleaner’s name
– Set the action to Gmail
– Send an email that says “Hi u/seands, as a reminder you have a job upcoming in the next hour. Here’s the details:”
As I’ve already said, I love Trello . You should really read the article I’ve linked above to find out why. Using Launch27’s brand new integration with Zapier, whenever I get a new booking, I’ll get a message in Slack to alert me. More importantly though, is that this allows me to automate a lot of my customer service work using Trello .
Whenever a new booking comes in from Launch27, Zapier will add a new card to my Inbox, “Assign team to Brittany White’s Job” and will include the details of the booking in the comments section of the card. When a booking is completed on Launch27, a new card is added to my Trello reminding me to follow up with the customer in 24 hours, to see how their experience was, and try to make things as great as possible. Using Zapier, the card is automatically created on my todo list for me, and a due date is set as well, so I don’t need to think, or worse, guess, when I need to follow up on that booking. Trello will just show me when I need to action that card, and the phone number is already populated thanks to L27 and Zapier.
Zapier: A lot less of you are likely to be familiar with Zapier. It’s like a bridge between all of your favourite services, including Launch27. It allows you to connect them together, share information between them, and automate a TON of work.
We recently upgraded our agency’s Zapier account and I gained a huge allotment of zaps! I am curious what are some good zaps you have used. So far, here are some of the ones I created:
– Post my Instagram photos to a dedicated Pinterest board.
– Using RSS triggers to add all new blogs to a Google sheet for each client.
– More obvious ones, like emailing new leads from Facebook Leads ads to myself and our clients, adding people to opted-in email drip campaigns, etc.
I am a heavy user of Zapier. So heavy actually, that we decided to build our own integration with Zapier (invite only – trackingdesk).
Zapier has over 1000 integrated apps, which is far more than any other “connector” out there, including automate dot io which has perhaps 100.
How we use Zapier:
– Update /create data in our intercom
– RSS feeds to Twitter posts / blog posts
– Conversion tracking / event tracking
– Billing / stirpe related automations
– Notifications for sales / conversions / activations
I’m trying to interegrate Zapier to my LinkedIN account so that it triggers the word and puts up an article on my profile to help me reach a more wider audience.
It some how isn’t working yet, also ran out of my free Zaps.
I have Zapier and ITTT accounts but they rarely integrate with things I actually want.
Zapier integrates with Habitica and you can do some interesting things with that.
Yeah, I’m in the same boat. I’m interested in Zapier and want to use it, but I haven’t dug into it enough to know how/why/where to use it…
It works with many different programs, but I typically don’t have those….
The organizer of a Discord group I’m in uses Zapier to copy the Twitter feed from a game company into a news page.
Zapier has more than 500 apps connected to their service. For each app, there are a couple of triggers and actions. You can even have one trigger perform multiple actions. The key benefits that Zapier brings to your business workflows are speed, consistency and visibility.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
