  2. Then do thisStep 2: Send Channel Message

Reply to people who post your company name on Hacker News in minutes using this Zap which notifies you in Slack whenever your company name is mentioned in a post or a comment.

Quick replies are rare, memorable, and a great way to build a fan-base around your brand. After all, who is expecting someone from a company to reply to their comment in an obscure thread within minutes of it being posted?

How It Works

  1. Zapier keeps an eye on HN, looking for new posts and comments that contain your company name (or really, anything word you want)
  2. When Zapier sees one, we will grab it and post a message into a Slack channel you pick with the snippet and link back to the post or comment.

What You Need

  • A Slack account and channel you want to push the message into.
