Last week, I attended ZapConnect, a free half-day user conference hosted by Zapier. The event featured Zapier team members and automation professionals covering a breadth of topics. In today’s article, I wanted to spotlight some interesting highlights from the conference that make the case for building an integration on Zapier, so let’s dive in!
1. Customers connecting to Zapier are more likely to upgrade
Both Airtable and Autopilot (now Ortto) observed that customers connecting to Zapier are more inclined to upgrade. This pattern isn't new; typically, customers who integrate with numerous tools evolve into high-value users.
2. Zapier’s developer platform eases validation of integration use cases
Utilizing Zapier accelerates the validation of integration use cases, enabling your team to progress swiftly with fewer resources.
3. Zapier’s partner API expands your app’s connectivity alongside native integrations
Leverage Zapier’s partner API to showcase Zap templates and create workflows directly within your app. This capability transforms Zapier into a force multiplier for any SaaS business, connecting it to over 5000+ apps. Companies can feature Zapier integrations prominently alongside their native ones, as exemplified by Wuffoo (pictured above) in their integrations library.
