You Can Now Integrate Bitly with Zapier!

Bitly is always better with friends.

That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with Zapier, which unlocks thousands of awesome triggers and conditions for Bitly users that can help simplify their day-to-day processes.  

You can automate tasks across a range of applications, including Google Sheets, Mailchimp, Buffer, and Twitter. Here are seven ways that Zapier can help you build seamless workflows with Bitly:

  1. Google Sheets

A lot of Bitly users need to shorten a lot of links all at once. This can be a pretty manual process of copying, shortening and pasting into Google Sheets.   

By integrating Zapier, you can ensure that every time you shorten a link in Bitly, that link auto-populates within a Google Sheet.

  1. Mailchimp

If you want to share your email campaign’s public page, it’s nice to know if people are clicking on it. With Zapier, you can create a trigger so that every time you send a new email via Mailchimp, a unique, trackable Bitly link is created that links to the email.

  1. Buffer

If you use Buffer to schedule and manage your social content, Zapier can help ensure that you don’t have to constantly hop between platforms.

With Zapier, you can have each new Bitly link you create automatically added to your Buffer queue.

  1. Twitter

Twitter is one of the most popular channels for Bitly users. With Zapier, you can make shortening and sharing your links totally seamless. Each time you create a new Bitly link, Zapier can automatically create a tweet with that link.

  1. Slack

Want to share specific data from your Bitly account directly to Slack?

With Zapier, you can track each new domain referred to your site by a Bitly link and automatically post it to Slack. This can give you a great view of how many referrers are driving traffic back to your business – and share the information with your team in real-time!

  1. WordPress

Tracking traffic for each blog post is a lot easier with Bitly. You can create individual Bitly links for each piece of content before you share and then check back on referrers, clicks, and more.

Zapier can automatically create a Bitly link every time you publish a new blog post. That makes sure that when your content is ready, a trackable Bitly link is ready to go, too.

Your Workflow, Flowing

We’re all looking to free up the time we spend on routine tasks. With Zapier, you can easily automate all the actions across your tech stack that take valuable minutes to manually complete.

With the little things out of the way, you’ll have the freedom to plan out a bigger, bolder strategy and focus on your most important work.
