How does Zapier work?

Zapier allows you to create automated workflows that trigger rewards across thousands of different apps, helping you get work done fast. All the apps you use at work, whether for email, sales, or surveys, can communicate with each other through Zapier workflows. 

Each workflow starts with a trigger, a specific action that begins the process. Once the trigger happens, the workflow automatically starts working through the steps you create. Suddenly, your everyday tasks are completing themselves while you focus on more important things.

Connect your apps to Giftbit

With Zapier integration, you can connect Giftbit to over 2,000 apps and automate workflows that send rewards anytime and anywhere. In this section of our guide, we’ll show you a few common examples of workflows that combine Giftbit with popular workplace apps. 

Example 1: SurveyMonkey

Contrary to popular belief, a study found that 65% of employees prefer non-cash incentives. If you’re searching for a way to get more survey participants, one of the best incentives is a gift card to a popular brand. The workflow between SurveyMonkey and Giftbit might look like this:

  • A participant submits a new survey response, triggering your Zap. 
  • Your Zap runs and pulls contact information from SurveyMonkey.
  • The participant receives a personalized email from you with their reward.

Example 2: BambooHR

Did you know 42% of employees consider rewards programs when looking for a job? You can enhance the onboarding process for new employees by welcoming them with a gift on their first day. The following is an example of the workflow:

  • A new person joins the team, and the workflow triggers on their start date.

  • On their first day, the Zap runs.

  • The new team member gets an email with a gift card and a welcome message.

Examples 3 & 4: Zoom and Hubspot

You can also create a Zap to trigger gift card rewards when sales representatives set up Zoom calls with potential clients. Alternatively, you can trigger rewards integration with HubSpot to reward customers for scheduling repeat services.
