Zapier is a tool that lets you connect different apps to automate time-consuming tasks.  When something happens in one app, it can trigger an action in another app without you having to even lift a finger. You can use Teachable and Zapier together to automatically add new students to email lists, keep track of your sales, sign students up for webinars, and much more, all while saving a ton of time and effort.  

Let’s look at some of the ways you can use Teachable and Zapier to take your online courses to the next level. For details on setting up Zapier with your Teachable account, check out the support documentation here.  

Marketing / Growth  

Register New Students for a Webinar  

Live webinars are great because they help you connect with your audience in real-time, adding a personal touch to your course. With this integration, you can automatically register users who enroll in your Teachable course for a webinar in GoToWebinar.  

Enroll Shopify Users With New Paid Orders in a Teachable Course 

Do you use Shopify to sell your Teachable courses? You’re in luck! With this integration, you can automatically give users who purchase your course through Shopify access to that course on Teachable. Or, as a bonus, grant customers on Shopify instant online course access. This means you don’t have to worry about manually enrolling people who purchase your course via Shopify - it’s all done automatically!

Logging Sales / Organization   

Log Sales in a Google Sheet  

If you’re looking for a way to log your course sales, filter and sort data, or even have a backup file of all your sales, Google Sheets is a great option. Using Zapier, you can log all of your online course sales inside a Google Sheet. This integration works by automatically copying new Teachable course orders into a Google Sheet as a new row.

Add Transactions to Quickbooks Online  

Use QuickBooks to manage your accounting? Take advantage of this Zapier integration to refine the process. Whenever a new transaction happens on your Teachable

Add New Teachable Users to Zendesk 

It’s inevitable that your students will need help at some point. Zendesk is an awesome help desk software that allows your students to file support tickets and get the help they need. With this integration, you can automatically add new students inside your Zendesk account. There’s no need to worry about registering your students on each website separately!

List Building 

Subscribe New Students to Aweber  

If you use Aweber as your email marketing tool, you can take advantage of Zapier to subscribe your new Teachable students to your Aweber account automatically. Every time a new user enrolls in your school, the user will get added as a new subscriber. You don’t have to waste valuable time copying your students’ contact information over to Aweber! 

Add New Students to a ConvertKit Sequence  

You’ll probably want all of your new students subscribed to your mailing list. Luckily, if you’re using ConvertKit, you can set up a Zapier integration so that every time someone purchases your course (even if it’s with a coupon), they are automatically subscribed to your sequence on ConvertKit. This helps keep your email lists active and healthy and makes sure that all of your students are kept in the loop.

Add New Teachable Users as InfusionSoft Contacts 

It can be time-consuming copying your students’ information between different platforms. It doesn’t have to be that way, though! If you use the marketing software Infusionsoft, you can set up a Zapier integration that automatically adds users who sign up for your Teachable school as a contact in Infusionsoft.

You can use Teachable and Zapier together to automatically add new students to email lists, keep track of your sales, sign students up for webinars, and much more, all while saving a ton of time and effort.
