Staying up to date on your work, your company, your life, and your friends and family is pretty important. And notifications is certainly one thing Zapier does really well.
Creating a Company Activity Feed
If you are in charge of a company, a department or a team odds are you like to know what's going on. What did people work on today? What did they accomplish? Zapier makes it easy to keep you up-to-date on these things by letting you create an activity stream in web apps like Yammer, Chatter, Flowdock, or Slack.
A good Zap for getting started is posting GitHub commits to Slack. This will keep everyone on the team up-to-date for when code is deployed.
Know When You Make Money
Making money is fun and exciting. With the Stripe charge alerts to Slack Zap your team can celebrate every sale.
Stay On Top of Customer Support
Creating happy customers is one of the easiest ways to foster word-of-mouth about your product or service. But sometimes answering quickly is easier said than done.
This Zendesk to Slack alert will make sure everyone on your team knows when a customer needs help.
Tracking Customer Activity
Closing a sale is all about understanding where your customer is in the purchasing lifecycle. If you can magically reach out at the right time through the right medium and with the right message you'll close a lot more sales.
An easy way to do this is to make sure you know what your customers are doing at all times. That's why Zaps like this SMS for new Salesforce lead are so important because they let you know what your leads and customers are doing.
Tracking Email Marketing List Activity
As you grow your email list it's good to keep track of who is subscribing. It's especially exciting to see an email address you recognize join your list or an email from someone famous in your industry.
You can use Zaps that connect Campfire and Mailchimp to keep a close watch on how quickly your list is growing and exactly who is on it.
Site Monitoring and Performance
Every site owner and web developer's worst nightmare is having their site go down and not knowing about it. Luckily there are lots of great tools for site monitoring that work with Zapier.
You can easily use Zaps that connect Pingdom to Campfire which will post to your Campfire room any time a Pingdom alert goes off about your site.
