What is Zapier?
Zapier is an online automation tool that connects different applications and services to automate repetitive tasks. It allows you to create automated workflows (called “Zaps”) that trigger an action in one application when a specific event occurs in another application. For example, you can create a Zap that automatically sends a confirmation email to a registrant when they sign up for an event on your website.

2. Create a new Zap and select your event registration platform as the trigger app.

Once you’ve set up your Zap, it will automatically trigger an action in your email marketing platform when a specific event occurs in your event registration platform. For example, when a new registrant signs up for your event, Zapier can automatically add them to your email marketing list and send them a confirmation email. This eliminates the need for manual data entry and ensures that your registrants receive timely and accurate information about your event.
