A Zapier subscription will make your startup run much smarter, tear through goals, be your Competition’s worst nightmare, and be less headache and more rewarding. Zapier is For Everyone. Your business doesn’t have to be any particular size. Everyone can benefit from the automation that Zapier provides.

  • move information from Google sheets to QBO or vice versa
  • automatically offer and handle surveys, polls, and questionnaires
  • collect the news you need to stay on top of your market
  • capture leads from multiple sources, website/phone support, or chat and funnel them into constant contact
  • post to social media and gather analytics from the posts
  • avoid double entries by literally linking anything that you use regularly.

You can select the various tools called Zaps; you need your startup to automate the tasks relevant to you so much your business runs on autopilot.

Why Zapier Automation is So Important for Startups

Zapier Saves Time

First, automation saves you precious time. You have many more important things to do than manually move information around and enter data. Moreover, you or a staff member don’t have to do those more important tasks. For instance, addressing customer concerns is very important, but many messages you or your staff would have to handle are repetitive or easily handled by AI. A chatbot can handle all of those easy messages for you, so you’re only left with the ones that require the attention of a live person. 

Increases Productivity and Cut Costs

The less time you and your staff spend doing unnecessary things, the more time you can engage in meaningful activities in which you can feel invested. You do more important work and feel more empowered on the job. With Zapier, your startup’s staff can result in a team twice its size, saving you hiring costs. For example, not every bank offers a QBO widget, and it’s common to prepare the file and upload it via Excel. With Zapier, you can paste new transactions into a Google Sheet, and the moment the info is pasted, the zap runs and pushes all the data into QBO.

Zapier Delivers More

Zapier automation can provide your customers with instant answers to their questions, instant delivery of a digital product, and the benefits of a generally more efficiently run and innovative business. When your team is fresher and more engaged, and you have time to devote to the more creative aspects of the business, the overall business improves. You can pick keywords that are the triggers for the zaps and control several actions, send the customer response, or move the customer info to whatever emailing platform you may be using and push their information into salesforce.

It helps You Keep up with the Competition.

There’s a ton of Competition, and you need to be agile, aggressive, and aware of what’s happening around you to succeed. Automation from Zapier makes your startup run more efficiently and puts the information you need, like customer feedback, leads, and news, in your lap, so you don’t have to search for it; you have to read it.

Zapier democratizes programming.

We don’t need to have a computer science degree or a data scientist in our staff to move data around. If you have common sense and imagination, you can come up with the best hacks to deal with everyday problems using Zapier. Alternatively, reach out to us, and we will gladly help you set up the right zap for your business, or if you have the time go to their site and begin having fun with Zapier.
