Zapier and SparkPost make it possible for non-techies to easily automate common and valuable tasks to make their jobs easier

.Zapier and SparkPost, better together.

SparkPost is proud to announce a new integration with Zapier. Zapier allows you to automate tasks that would normally require custom development, thousands of dollars in up-front development costs, and long deployment times.

How it works:

Zapier runs off of triggers and actions. These are simply events referred to as ‘Zaps’ which run automatically every 5-15 minutes depending on your plan. When a trigger item occurs, the Zap (event) automatically follows through on the defined action step. Essentially, whenever the trigger event occurs, the zap automatically completes the action for you, saving users time and the hassle of having to manually do these repetitive tasks.

For example, have you ever wanted to inform the sales or marketing departments of a new lead? By leveraging the SparkPost-Salesforce integration on Zapier, you can send emails to your team when a new lead is created.

Example:

  1. You have a new lead in Salesforce
  2. Zapier sends an email via SparkPost to the intended recipients (CEO, sales team, etc.)

Another example is you can set up a trigger to monitor your Twitter account so that every time you receive a new follower, Zapier can send an email via SparkPost to the intended recipients. (Scroll down to see links to some other examples).

The greatest part about Zapier is that it makes APIs accessible to non-technical users. Anyone from marketers to sales teams to entrepreneurs can use it to easily automate common and valuable tasks.

Example Zaps include:
