There are 2 ways to connect Crowdcast to your application. The first is through direct integrations. Currently you can directly integrate Crowdcast with the following applications in the integration settings page:
Drip – A ecommerce friendly email marketing platform
ConvertKit – A creator friendly email marketing platform
Stripe – For doing paid events
Patreon – For hosting members-only (aka Patron-only) crowdcasts
In addition to the direct integrations, we've built a deep integration with Zapier to connect to over 1000 additional applications.
What is Zapier?
Zapier is like glue for all the applications on the internet. It lets you connect the different apps you use together without having to write a line of code.
How can you use Crowdcast with Zapier?
You can see the compatible triggers and actions here. Choose your preferred app and see what's possible with Zapier. The integrations don't include features like pulling information from custom registration fields or overlaying a widget. But you can easily setup one click registrations on your website or separate those who joined live and those who missed out into different marketing campaigns. Check it out!
Through Zapier you can do two main things:
Register a user for a Crowdcast → This is called an Action.
Send a Crowdcast attendee info out to another app → This is called a Trigger.
If you'd like to setup Zaps to trigger for individual events, you will need to setup a filter. If you filter by event code, please note that this is the suffix of the url. For example, the event code for this URL https://www.crowdcast.io/e/cc-demo-0329 would be cc-demo-0329
Through actions and triggers you can connect Crowdcast to over 500 different apps. Each connection is called a Zap. Here are some examples of the kinds of Zaps that are possible:
When someone signs up for your Mailchimp newsletter, register them to a Crowdcast.
Get alerts in Slack when someone registers for your event.
Automatically tag attendees who join your Crowdcast in ConvertKit.
When someone submits info on your TypeForm, register them to your Crowdcast
