Having a CRM system doesn’t do you a lot of good if it doesn’t “talk” to the other parts of your sales process. Today, we’re taking a big step in making connecting the many tools and parts of your company to HubSpot CRM easier with the new HubSpot CRM - Zapier integration.
What is Zapier?
Not familiar with Zapier? If you are as much of a tech geek as many of us are at HubSpot, take our advice and make sure you are sitting down before you read on. Zapier is an integration platform that allows you to connect HubSpot CRM to literally hundreds of other tools in just a few minutes without any technical knowledge. It’s as simple as picking the app you want to connect to, and thinking through a few details of what data you want to sync and when.
The new Zapier app for HubSpot CRM currently works with contact data in HubSpot CRM. In the future, we plan to expand support of the Zapier app to work with company, deal and task data in HubSpot CRM too.
How to Get Started
Getting started with Zapier in HubSpot CRM is easy. Here are a few simple steps to get you up and running -
- First, you’ll need to find your Hub ID. Log in to HubSpot CRM and look at the URL of the dashboard - your Hub ID is the (usually 6 digit) number at the end of the web address.
- Once you’ve got your HubID, head over to zapier.com and create an account. It’s a few simple steps. Add a new app, and search for HubSpot CRM.
- You’ll go through a quick process to authorize Zapier to connect to your HubSpot or HubSpot CRM account where you’ll need to paste in that HubID we copied a minute ago.
- Once Zapier is connected to HubSpot CRM, you are good to go in exploring all of the possible things you can do with HubSpot CRM & Zapier!
