VBOUT is a comprehensive and robust platform that offers many tools and features to help marketers centralize and automate their tasks in a super easy and effective way.
On the other hand, we know that some users might have some commitments with other 3rd party apps or have software limitations that prevent them from directly migrating a part of their process or data to our platform.
For that, we made sure to develop our platform to be 100% autonomous as well as inclusive and collaborative to perfectly function with external softwares providing our users with the ultimate flexibility they need.
One of those integration features we enabled our platform with was our alliance with Zapier.
Through integration with Zapier, you’re able to connect VBOUT with different external tools or services that your team might use such as Shopify, Google spreadsheet, insightly, and many others… This allows you to easily automate workflows.
You can choose different Zapier connectors or Zaps displayed on the VBOUT platform.
VBOUT can be used as a trigger or action. For instance, you’re likely to choose VBOUT as an action if you want to add a new subscriber to a particular VBOUT’s list once that same user makes a purchase on Shopify.
Or, if you want to add a new event in Google calendar each time an email campaign is sent from VBOUT for example, you can choose VBOUT as a trigger.
Below are the different supported triggers and actions’ of VBOUT.
New contact property change - Triggers every time a specified property is updated for any contact.
