We’re really excited to tell you about our latest integration partner because we know you like to integrate ClickSend into your favourite business applications. Well, now you can do it for free.
Apiway is a free integration platform that allows you to connect ClickSend with 30+ other apps without a programmer. There are already several platforms like this including Zapier, Integromat, and IFTTT, which can integrate applications without coding.
But Apiway is unique.
The main distinguishing feature of Apiway is that it’s free – you don’t need a paid account to access all applications. Why is this so? Apiway is monetised by vendors on its marketplace. Therefore the platform is completely free (without restrictions!) for you, the end-user.
How Does Apiway Work?
The platform is based on the “If This Then That” logic or trigger/action logic. You choose the services which you want to integrate. Specify the "trigger" which will launch an action. Then you set the “Action” that will happen – this is called a ‘Way’ (similar to a ‘zap’ in Zapier).
Often when using ClickSend with an integration, you’ll want something to trigger an action in ClickSend, for example, if you receive a Facebook lead form and want that to trigger sending an SMS to an account manager for immediate follow up (check out the example of this below). That’s why we have 11 different actions you can trigger when connecting ClickSend with Apiway.
Here are all the available actions for ClickSend in Apiway:
ClickSend Actions Available
- Send SMS
- Send Fax
- Send Letter
- Send SMS To Contact List
- Send voice
- Create a Contact List
- Create Contact
- Send MMS
- Send Postcard
- Delete Contact
- Delete Contact List
On occasion, you might want an SMS to trigger an action in another app, that’s why there’s also a ClickSend trigger configured as ‘New Incoming SMS’. Use this to trigger an action in over 30 other applications.
Facebook Leads and ClickSend Integration (SMS Notifications)
We decided to show one of the examples of using Apiway to send SMS notifications when someone filled in a Facebook lead form. Very often, sales managers need to be notified to call a customer right away.
There’s also a situation when you need to send an SMS to a client and say that his application has been accepted and he will be called soon.
In this video tutorial you can learn how to set up SMS notifications when someone fills in a form on Facebook:
ActiveCampaign and ClickSend Integration
ActiveCampaign is a very powerful marketing automation tool that allows you to improve your productivity. In the automation constructor, you can configure sending SMS via Webhook. For example, the system will send SMS 15 minutes before the webinar. There can be many other options.
We hope you enjoy using Apiway. We’d love to hear your feedback and especially about how you’re using our latest integration partner. Let us know what you’ve created with ClickSend and Apiway in the comments below or reach out to us on Facebook!
