We’ve just integrated with an unusual service — an integration that makes it easy to… create your own integrations. With a few clicks you can now connect GetResponse with services such as Gmail, Basecamp, Evernote and dozens of apps listed in Zapier.com.
What Is Zapier?
Zapier is an easy way to get two selected apps to talk to each other. How? A specified trigger in one app causes a specified action in another app.
The directory of apps you can zap keeps growing, and GetResponse has just joined the list.
How does Zapier work with GetResponse?
GetResponse can be integrated with any app in the Zapier directory. You can set up zaps in two ways:
1. Use a trigger inside GetResponse to create a desired action in another app.
For example, let’s say you want to automatically send an email from your Gmail account, or add a new user in Zendesk or send a text message to a mobile phone.
You can choose one of those actions then make it happen whenever your GetResponse account adds a new contact, or you create a campaign, or you send a newsletter.
Just use Zapier to pick a trigger and pick an action:
When you’re happy with the way the trigger and action work together, click to create the Zap:
2. Use a trigger in another app to cause an action in GetResponse.
What happens when you receive a new email in your Gmail inbox or a new follower on Twitter? Now you can trigger a new contact to be added to a specified campaign in your GetResponse account.
Note: Because we use double-optin confirmation, the new contact always receives a confirmation email.
After you’ve created your zap, make sure you configure both sides — the trigger side and the action aside, add any filters you want use then don’t forget to test it.
And, of course, put it to work for you. It’s all click-and-drag simple.
So if you haven’t used Zapier before, go ahead and give it a try, integrating your GetResponse account with an app of your choice.
