Boost your productivity game with our most popular Zaps for Trainerize
From automating email communication to delivering digital programs, in no particular order, here are 5 popular ways to use Zapier to automate more of your business!
1. Send Automated Emails
While we’ve made it easier to communicate with clients in-app with Trainerize, sometimes it’s still necessary to have some form of email communication with clients! With Zapier, connect Trainerize to Mailchimp, Constant Contact, or other email publishers to subscribe new Trainerize clients to a mailing list or to send a welcome email to new clients.
2. Request Digital Signatures for Waivers, Contracts, and PAR-Q forms
When you’re offering clients an online coaching program, it’s important to deliver a seamless onboarding experience for clients. That includes making it easy for clients to review and sign-off on all the important signatures digitally for waivers, contracts, and PAR-Q forms!
With Zapier, connect Trainerize to HelloSign, SignNow or another e-signing tool to enable digital signatures. Once a client gets added to your app, Zapier automatically triggers an email to them with the document to sign.
3. Create Clients Automatically in Trainerize
Setting up new clients is a breeze with Zapier and Trainerize! Say goodbye to manually entering clients into Trainerize. With Zapier, you can create various Zaps that will add new clients from emails or forms to Trainerize or as pending clients from Shopify after clients purchase a product.
4. Deliver Digital Programs
Set up Zaps to automate setting up a client after they purchase a program. Like delivering a digital training program to clients automatically when they purchase or on the program start date, attach meal plans automatically, and more!
5. Connect Other Payment Systems and Automate Client Actions
We know everyone has their own preferences, payment methods included. With Zapier, you can integrate other methods of getting paid, like Paypal, Square, Stripe, Shopify, etc with Trainerize. When a client purchases via your preferred payment method, easily add them as a client to Trainerize to deliver their training program.
