Pabbly Connect by Pabbly has been in circulation in the online marketing world for a while now. Pabbly was the brainchild of Pankaj & Neeraj Agarwal. They are the pioneers who created Magnet Brains; India’s number 1 online school education platform.
Many business owners have already subscribed and used this platform in their business. Still, it is normal to get confused at first and ask what kind of things should we be using Pabbly Connect for. This is a good question. And should be addressed by anyone before they start doing any Pabbly integrations and automation.
Why Use Pabbly Connect
Pabbly Connect being an automation software is used to automate repetitive tasks. It is also used for custom integration of various software. But the most fundamental reasons for anyone to automate things and use integration applications are two things. To make money and to save money. These two objectives should be always put in mind whenever you did any automation. And this applies not only to Pabbly Connect but to any automation software you are using.
Payment Failure Notifications
A good way to start your automation process is to create a payment failure notification. It is not only important to have a good landing page but also to have an automatic option if ever your customer failed their payment process.
More often than not, your customers will have problems with their payment process. This can’t be avoided and can be a real threat to your sales if not solved immediately. A good example is when a customer’s credit card is maxed out. Most likely your customers won’t even know that they’ve already maxed out their card.
Therefore it is important to set up a failure notification option for you and your customer. This way an automatic email will be sent to the customer to inform them that their card was revoked. This lets them immediately find some other way to pay. It can be really frustrating for the customer to wait a long time. Only to realize that they got held back in the payout process.
Need assistance with Pabbly Connect?
There are a lot of businesses that focus on generating lots of leads as possible. But the problem is they don’t have any good follow-ups for those leads.
It is important to automate these leads so that they will turn into profit as soon as possible. These leads may come in many forms. Webinars, contact forms, Facebook lead ads forms, and surveys, are some of these.
It is very important to immediately do a lead follow-up with the very same customers.
Easy Accounting / Easy Delivery
Automating your tasks lets you easily deliver products even on downtimes like weekends. Due to time zone differences, some customer requests cannot be accommodated. This is true, especially during weekends or on occasion, holidays.
This is where automation shines. You don’t need to be in constant contact with your delivery operations and staff.
Common business practice is to manually input transaction details into accounting software. This process takes a lot of time and might lead to more problems due to human error. Automating the accounting process should boost production by saving a lot of time and eliminating human errors.
What are triggers and actions?
Pabbly Connect works on a very simple concept of triggers and actions. It means that when something happens inside one software an event will happen inside another one.
Pabbly Connect is the master controller in the middle of the integration web. It will gather data from one software and sends it to another after processing that data.
Pabbly Connect Internal Task Calculation
A lot of people are curious about how tasks are calculated inside Pabbly Connect. It is important to learn that a task is counted ONLY when there is an action step towards an external software.
Let us say for example you are executing a form to generate leads. You must be thinking of executing an automation workflow from Gravity Form to Elastic Email. And then to Google Sheets or maybe Google Analytics to check traffic.
In this setup, the trigger event starts from Gravity Form. The workflow direction is from left to right from Gravity Form to Elastic Email and then to Google Sheets.
Elastic Email is the first action step with Google Sheets as the second task. Thus, there are two tasks being done every time this workflow is completed.
So, if you want to execute this workflow 10 different times. That would mean a total of 20 task volumes. These tasks are then deducted from the monthly task limit.
The beauty of Pabbly Connect is that the trigger events are not part of the tasks per month calculation. This means that internal tasks are not deducted from your monthly task limit. A lot of integration platforms charge for their triggers but Pabbly is fortunately not one of those.
As mentioned, internal tasks like Filter, Router, Iterator, etc. in Pabbly Connect are free and are not included in the monthly task limit. The same could not be said with the competitors’ platforms where internal tasks are counted separately from the action steps. This makes Pabbly Connect very economical.
Pabbly Connect’s software integration is off the charts! All you need to do is to select the desired applications. And just like that, you can immediately start integrating some software. Here are some popular triggers and how they are used in Pabbly Connect.
- Webhook – a mini API that enables a program to send one-way data to another software application.
- Filter – lets you send only the filtered data to external software.
- Router – allows you to send data to different external software.
- Email Parser – receive emails and extract any email’s key details. And sends that data to any applications.
- Schedule Trigger – schedules the running and execution of your automation workflow.
- Delay Module – lets you withhold certain actions within your automation workflow.
- Multi-Step calls – let you automate numerous processes with just one trigger.
- Formatters – automatic numbers and text formatting
