Using a Certified Zapier Expert To Connect Apps For Your Business
Imagine you are a small business owner with an online store. You’ve been using Shopify to run your store, and you’re doing well – but you know there are other eCommerce platforms out there that could do even more for your business. You’ve heard great things about other options, and you decide to make the switch. But then you realize that managing all of the different apps needed to run your store on a different platform will be a huge undertaking – especially since you don’t have any experience with coding or development. What do you do?
Thankfully, there’s Zapier. Zapier is a platform that connects different apps together so that businesses can automate tedious tasks and workflows. And if you’re not sure how to set it up, Automize, as your Certified Zapier Expert can help you!
Do you have a lot of repetitive tasks that you have to do manually as your apps don’t work together? Well, Zapier integration is the answer! Using a Zapier consultant can help you get the automation right the first time. As a Zapier Certified Expert, let me share with you the benefits of using Zapier.
With over 3000+ apps you can connect through Zapier with “Zaps”, you can connect almost anything. This platform is a favorite of ours at AUTOMIZE.
First of all, What is Zapier Used for?
Zapier is a tool that helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps and you do not need to use code in order to accomplish the task. When an event happens in one app, Zapier can tell another app to perform (or do) a particular action. You do this by setting up “Zaps”.
What is a Zap?
A Zap sounds like a comic book word, but in this case, a “Zap” is what you set up in Zapier – it is an automated workflow that tells your apps to follow this simple command. For example, “When this happens, do that.”
Every Zap has a trigger and one or more actions. A trigger is an event that starts a Zap, and an action is what your Zap does for you. When a Zap runs, each action it completes counts as one task. One trigger, one action.
- Trigger – when
- Action – after the trigger, what it actually does
There were over 3000+ apps that you can use in Zapier. If you need help, reach out to us as a Certified Zapier Expert to help you. Here are a few of the most common Zapier Integrations you can use.
