How to use Zapier
Our integration with Zapier allows you to send your member's data to over 1,000 other 3rd party services like MailChimp, Trello, Google Sheets, etc.
In Zapier there are 2 main concepts, triggers and actions.
Triggers and Actions
Triggers are events that happen in one service, like MemberSpace. When a trigger event happens you can do something at the time of the event and have access to data that the trigger provides. In MemberSpace we have two triggers:
- New Membership - happens when a member is added to or joins a member plan.
- Canceled Membership - happens when a member has canceled their recurring payment plan, is removed from a one time payment plan, or is removed from a free plan.
In both triggers, member data is provided to you for use in an action (an event that you start from within Zapier to do something in a connected service). MemberSpace does not have actions (yet) but many services do. You can see the specifics of our integration with Zapier here.
Lets make a Zap!
- Here is a step-by-step guide for creating a Zap to automatically add members to a Mailchimp email list (without requiring opt in).
- Here is another step-by-step guide for creating a Zap to automatically add members to a Mailchimp email list (after they opt in).
You can repurpose either guide for almost any email marketing tool e.g. Convertkit, Constant Contact, Active Campaign, etc.
