How to Connect CloudSpot + Flodesk using Zapier
Are you tired of adding your gallery contacts to Flodesk manually, or via a CSV upload? With CloudSpot's Zapier integration, you can Zap any gallery visitor's email address directly to Flodesk automatically for easier email marketing!
If you haven't already, you'll need to connect CloudSpot to your Zapier account in order to get this Zap started. Read more about how to do that here!
Once you've got your account connected, it's time to get started with creating your Zap. To begin, login to Zapier and click "Make a Zap" in your account dashboard.
Note: You'll need at least one gallery with Email Capture enabled for this Zap to work.
Setting Up a Trigger
We'll set up a Trigger that fires every time one of your galleries receives a new email via CloudSpot's Email Capture form. To do this, simply search for CloudSpot in the Trigger search bar and select the icon when it comes up.
Choose the Trigger event called "New Email Capture". Selecting this option will initiate this Zap any time someone fills out the Email Capture form. Once you've selected the "New Email Capture" option, click "Continue".
Select your CloudSpot account when prompted, and click "Continue" again.
Finally, click "Test Trigger" to allow Zapier to pull some sample data from your CloudSpot account. Then, click "Continue" when prompted.
Setting Up an Action
Now that we have our Trigger set up, it's time to create an Action. We'll be focusing on how to take emails from our Email Capture form and place them into Flodesk for easy email marketing. Simply search for Flodesk in the Action search bar and select the icon when it comes up.
Choose the Action event called "Create/Update Subscriber". Selecting this option will automatically create a new subscriber each time your Email Capture form is filled out. Once you've selected the "Create/Update Subscriber" option, click "Continue".
Select your Flodesk account when prompted, and click "Continue" again.
From here, you can map out the necessary fields that you'd like to include with this subscriber. The only required fields are "Segment" and "Email". You can add in your client's first and last name, as well as which gallery and specific gallery URL their email was captured in.
Once you've finished mapping out your fields with the necessary information, click "Continue".
You'll be prompted to test the connection to your Flodesk account, which you can choose to do by clicking either "Test & Review" or "Test & Continue".
Once you've concluded testing, you'll be prompted to turn on your Zap at the bottom of the window, or the top right hand corner.
BOOM! You just set up your Zap! 🎉 🎉
Now, any Email Capture form submissions within your galleries will be automatically added to Flodesk as new subscribers!
