One of our main goals at Norby is to simplify your stack. Bouncing back and forth between what seems like a million different platforms to run your marketing operations, connect with your community, and grow your business can make you feel like you are juggling constantly. While we try to make things as easy as possible by putting all of your mission-critical tools in one place, there are times when you need to share data across apps or integrate Norby with other tools in your toolkit. That’s why we integrate with Zapier -- a platform for automating workflows between applications.
That sounds a little vague, so let me explain. Zapier is a tool that allows you to link all of your applications together so that they can share data, automate workflows, and make your work life easier with absolutely no code involved. For example, with a Zapier integration, you could add people who book a meeting with you in Calendly to your newsletter in Flodesk, or add people who sign up for a workshop on Norby to your Hubspot CRM. No manual moving between applications necessary -- the magic of the Zap does it all for you.
That’s why we use Zapier integrations on Norby: so you spend less time on tedious workflow stuff and have more time for the big picture things that actually, you know, matter to your business. Sound enticing? I know… so we’ve outlined how our Norby community is using Zapier integrations and some best practices for ya. Read on to learn more about the magical world of Zaps on Norby.
Before we can create our first workflow, you’ll need to sign up for Zapier if you haven’t already. Once you have a Zapier account, you can add Norby either via the Integrations tab in your Norby dashboard or by searching for Norby in the Zapier marketplace.
Once you’ve added Norby, tap the “Create Zap” button to create a new workflow.
The first thing you’ll need to do in your new Zap is define your trigger event. The trigger is the initial event that is fired that kicks off the workflow – for instance, when a user signs up for one of your events on Norby.
Search for Norby in the “Search apps…” field to see the available Norby triggers. We provide an extensive set of triggers to match pretty much any use case you can think of. This includes:
There are a few popular workflows we see our crew members utilizing on Norby with Zapier. If you’ve been looking for ways to simplify your workflows, look no further. Read below for the most common Zapier integrations on Norby and how you can use them.
One very common use case we see is customers connecting Norby to an email service provider like Flodesk or Mailchimp. You can build, schedule, and send newsletters directly within Norby, but if there are power features you need or if you have an existing newsletter template library somewhere else, you can easily integrate your existing email tool with Norby via Zapier.
There are various Zaps you can perform between Norby and Hubspot, but a good use case to be familiar with here is for sharing contact information. Integrating your Norby with Hubspot allows you to push any contact information you capture on Norby into a list in Hubspot.
If you created a Signup on Norby and collected names and emails you could use a Zap to send this contact info to a Hubspot list. Once you get these contacts pushed to Hubspot, you can separate them out into different lists to meet your needs. Build 👏 those 👏 lists 👏 with a significantly lower lift with this integration.
Start by selecting Norby as your trigger app and Contact Created as your trigger event. This event will be triggered whenever someone is added to your contacts on Norby. Next, select Hubspot as the app you are sending data to and Contact Created as the action you want to automate. This will push signups from your Norby page/s into Hubspot. Integrating Hubspot with Norby is extremely flexible, so check here to explore some of the other possibilities!
Integrating your Norby with Google Sheets allows you to create quick and digestible lists that you can use for your own personal reference when users register for events and signups. While you may want to push this info into more advanced platforms as well, this integration is great for quick snapshots of this type of data.
First, select Norby as your trigger app and either Event Registration or User Signup as your trigger event (depending on what you are collecting data from -- either an event or a signup on your Norby page). This event will be triggered when a user completes registration for one of your events or signups. Next, select Google Sheets as the app you want to push data to and Create Spreadsheet Row as the action you want to automate. This will push the names of users who register into new rows in a previously set up spreadsheet. For more on this integration and to start setting it up, click here.
