Introducing the Zapier & RedCappi Integration
We’re very excited to introduce that we’ve connected RedCappi with Zapier. We know this integration will create so much value for our customers by allowing them to connect redcapi’s email marketing software with 750+ other apps. And the best part – there’s no engineering required.
Zapier is a tool that allows you to connect apps you use every day to automate tasks and save time.

What Can You Do With the Zapier and RedCappi Integration?
You’re probably asking “what are some of the things I can do with Zapier?” Great question. The possibilities are limitless, but here are a few examples of Zaps you may be interested in building:
- Create a lead in Salesforce.com each time a subscriber fills out a RedCappi sign-up form. In the olden days you would have to hire a Salesforce.com engineer and pay them $200/hour to program this for you using the Salesforce.com APIs. When all was said and done, you might have easily ended up spending thousands of dollars. However, now that RedCappi has an integration with Zapier, you can easily create a Zap in the Zapier platform that creates the lead in Salesforce.com each time a subscriber fills in a RedCappi sign-up form. Oh and guess what the price would be. It would be absolutely FREE if you sign-up for Zapier’s free plan.
- Add prospective customers to RedCappi Autoresponder campaigns each time a Hubspot CRM contact’s property (field) value is changed. Again, in olden times this would probably cost you thousands of dollars. However, now you can do this free & easy.
Today, we are BETA testing with Zapier, so we need customers to help us test the integrations with their favorite apps. We’ll be giving you written articles containing instructions for creating your favorite Zaps with RedCappi. But we also want to hear your suggestions. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a form if you have any suggestions or ideas of Zaps you need help creating. Below, we’ve highlighted a few of the platforms with Zapier integrations you may find useful. You’ll also find a list of hyperlinks with instructions for creating specific Zaps.

Yes, we conducted tests to make sure that both leads created in Salesforce.com manually by users and leads created in Salesforce.com through online forms would both be created as contacts in RedCappi, and the tests were successful
