You’ll know by now just how much of a fan I am of Zapier.

Through its countless app integrations, customisations, and IFTTT logic, Zapier’s designed to problem-solve on your behalf Zap after Zap.

Automating communication, orders, administration, problem-solving, sales enquiries, alerts, access, fulfilment, storage, contracts, lights switching on and off — the list is extensive. It’s not hyperbole to say that Zapier can single handedly transform the way you run your business.

Odds are, if you’ve got a manual workflow that you repeat, there’s a Zap to take it off your plate.

Today I’m launching a brand new Zapier Fundamentals Course, designed to give you all the tools you need to automate your business with minimal outlay and effort + maximum efficiency.

I found Zapier in the first year of implementing automation in my business — and in that first year, I saved over $50,000 in business costs as a result.

If you’ve already tried Zapier, and made a few Zaps, you might already be in love. There’s also a good chance that you’ve run into some frustrations if you’ve dived in without much direction.

This course will give you a way to learn, covering all of the fundamentals, and giving you direct support in our Automation Hackers Facebook group at the same time.

This course covers:

  • All the ins and outs of how Zapier works 💪
  • Starting with a basic Zap 💡
  • Creating online forms 🧾
  • Integrating with Airtable 🤝
  • Build automated documents 📝
  • Leverage Trello for automated team task management 🔨
  • Zapier helpers — the magic of filters, formatter, and delays ✨
  • Understand Zapier paths 🛣️
  • How to share a Zap 📧
  • The power of the Zapier URL shortener 🔌

If you’re already incredibly experienced in Zapier, move it along. This course ain’t the one for you.

If you’re looking to go from zero to smug, confident Zapier user in hardly any time at all, stick around. With over an hour of easy-to-follow, self-paced how-to videos, you can also move your way through at your own pace, revisiting the content whenever you need.

Here’s just a sample of some of the most popular Zapier integrations used by companies around the world on a daily basis…
