Import Tweets onto your website

If you're business runs a WordPress website there are a range of Twitter plugins and Tweet embeds you can use to show your tweets on your website. None of them offer the flexibility of importing your tweets as blog posts or news items directly into your WordPress site.

This process can be automated with a Zapier Zap. Create a new Zap with the source as your Twitter account and have the workflow triggered with a new tweet is detected. Now link your WordPress site as a destination. It may be a good idea to create a new user just for publishing tweets with Author level permissions.

Remember with a free Zapier account there will be short delay, up to 15 minutes, for new tweets to be processed and published on your WordPress site.

Create a spreadsheet of leads

What happens when your enquiry form is completed on your website? Most business owners receive an email with all the form details. With a Zapier integration between your form and Google Sheets you can set up a Zap to add new form submissions as a row in a spreadsheet. Now you can save time processing and filtering submissions compared to juggling multiple email messages.

Add customers to a mailing list

So you've successfully turned a visitor into a customer and processed their order. You worked hard to secure their business so their first purchase should just be the start of your relationship. You can use Zapier to integrate with either your storefront software (such as Shopify or WooCommerce) or payment gateway (Stripe or PayPal) and pass your customer's first name and email address to a service such as Mailchimp or Mailerlite. Now each time someone makes a purchase you're mailing list grows. Use cases include request a review 2 weeks after the purchase was made.
