Zapier for branded short links is a powerful weapon advancing work automation. Short.cm and Zapier allow launching repetitive actions, like creating, changing, and sharing branded links.

With Zapier and Short.cm integration, you use short branded links, while applying other tools, such as Twitter, Facebook, Slack, Twilio, and Google Sheets. The list is endless. Once you've set up the integration, the actions are carried out without your participation.

How Zapier is Operating

A Zap is a workflow of actions you want to be repeated automatically. When creating a Zap, you need to add a target application, which will send a trigger on to another one.

A trigger is something that happens in an app. The link is shortened, or the article is published. An action is something a Zap does after a trigger occurs, like posting a newly shortened link or creating a short link for a recently published article.

For example, by integrating Zapier with branded links, a target might be creating short links. An action could be scheduling a post in Buffer.

You can send SMS to your customers using Twilio. Your target action would be creating a link on Short.cm. The trigger action then would be sending SMS to specified contacts.

Create short links for new items on Shopify. Your target action would be adding a new product to Shopify. The trigger action would create a branded link for each new item.

That's not all…

Even though Zapier repeats actions, it allows you to specify custom settings. When setting up a Zap, you can additionally implement Short.cm features in the links. For example, you can specify a custom slug, UTM tags, link expiration, link cloaking, and password protection. This allows you to create a fully customized link remotely from Short.cm.

Why should you use Zapier?

Zap automatically sends an action from one tool to another, so you'll spend less time manually transferring data between services. It gives you a chance to delegate responsibilities and focus on advanced tasks.
