Zapier is one of the most popular web automation platforms available today. It’s simple to use and has a wide range of integrations with the most popular online services.
It comes as no surprise that here at LiveWebinar, we naturally integrate with this tool and provide a couple of so-called Zaps for our users to leverage.
In this blog post, we’re going to show you how to use our integration to automate your tedious tasks, streamline your tool usage, and make your workload a whole lot easier.
What is Zapier, actually?
Zapier is a web-based service that lets you connect two different applications together in order to automate tasks. To do this, you need to create Zap–which is simply a connection between two apps–and specify the trigger and action that should happen.
Once you’ve created your Zap, it will automatically perform the task whenever the trigger event happens in the app you selected.
The process is very intuitive, however, if you need more help, Zapier has an excellent support team over live chat that can assist you with any issues you might have, or a few handy resources you may want to leverage

Now let’s take a look at some of the ways you can automate your LiveWebinar experience using Zapier.
Integrate your webinars with appointment scheduling software
...to make sure your attendees can book time with you in advance. This may be crucial for quite a few reasons – maybe you want to offer private consultations, or perhaps there’s just too many people attending your webinars for you to be able to talk to everyone individually.
There are two options that our integration offers:
#1 Create new registered attendees in LiveWebinar from new bookings on GoSchedule
#2 Create webinars in LiveWebinar from new Calendly invitees
Once active, this zap automatically creates a webinar in LiveWebinar as soon as a new Calendly booking is created. When an invitee schedules an event it triggers action – creating a new webinar at LiveWebinar. You can try this template by clicking here.
Both options are extremely helpful and will save you a lot of time that you would otherwise spend on manually creating webinars or copying data over from one application to another.
Integrate your webinars with CRM
While some people may not see the point in integrating their webinars with their CRM system, we strongly believe that it’s a great idea. Your webinars can be a powerful lead generation tool, and by integrating them with your CRM you can make sure that no leads slip through the cracks.
It's natural then that we have a zap available for our users that automate this process:
#3 Add new LiveWebinar registrants to Pipedrive
Each new registrant on your webinar will automatically be added as a new person in Pipedrive, with all of their contact details neatly organized and ready for you to follow up. You can use this template by clicking here.
Integrate your webinars with Slack
Slack is one of the most complex, feature-rich communication tools available today. It’s used by some of the biggest tech companies in the world, and it’s quickly becoming a staple for businesses of all sizes.
While there are many different ways to use Slack – and we encourage you to explore them all – we think that using a LiveWebinar zap with Slack is a great way to increase team collaboration and communication.
There are two options available:
#4 Get Slack notifications for new LiveWebinar registrants
Whenever there is a new registrant for your webinar, you and your team will be notified in Slack. This way, you can make sure that everyone on your team is aware of who is attending your webinars, and it also allows you to quickly follow up with new leads. You can use this template by clicking here.
#5 Send Slack messages for new webinars in LiveWebinar
When a new webinar or meeting is created, you get a Slack message in a #channel of your choice. This way, you can keep everyone on your team in the loop about the progress and performance of your upcoming meeting. You can use this template by clicking here.
Integrate your webinars with landing pages
Landing pages are integral part of any lead generation or marketing campaign. They’re designed to capture leads and funnel them into your sales process, and they can be extremely effective when used correctly.
However, one of the best ways to use landing pages is in conjunction with webinars. By integrating your webinars with landing pages, you can make sure that all of your leads are properly funneled into your sales process.
#6 Create LiveWebinar registrants from new Unbounce form submissions
When a new Form Submission is received on a Landing Page, Overlay or Sticky Bar, a special action is triggered and a new registrant to your LiveWebinar meeting is automatically added. You can use this template by clicking here.
Integrate your webinars with video platforms
Leverage your webinars in the most professional way by integrating them with video platforms. This way you can make sure that your webinars are properly branded and that they match the rest of your marketing collateral. Additionally, this works wonders towards content repurposing. Like with everything else, we have a few zaps available that can automate this process for you.
#7 Upload new LiveWebinar recordings to YouTube
When a recording of your LiveWebinar meeting is post-processed and ready for download, this zap will automatically upload it to your YouTube channel. Such activity can help with content repurposing and will give you an extra edge when it comes to SEO. You can use this template by clicking here.
#8 Upload videos for Vimeo when new webinar recordings are ready in LiveWebinar
This can work the same way with your Vimeo account (given you have enough quota to keep your recording there) – simply set up this zap and your LiveWebinar recordings will be automatically uploaded as Vimeo videos. You can use this template by clicking here.
