ContentCal is now available on Zapier and it's pretty damn fantastic. Connect ContentCal to all of your favorite apps now. 

What is Zapier?

Zapier allows thousands of apps to be connected and work together. You can use Zapier to set up automated workflows called 'Zaps'. These Zaps allow apps to send data from one to the other without the need for code.

What does this mean for ContentCal?

Now that we're integrated with Zapier, you can now use ContentCal in connection with all of your favourite software including Pocket, Facebook Groups, and Buffer (for automated Instagram publishing). Read the support doc to get clued up.

Not sure where to start? Here are some zaps to try...

Create ContentCal posts for new Pocket items

Manually adding content from different sources can be tedious and time-consuming. Using Pocket to discover and save content, you can automatically add those saved items to ContentCal, via Zapier.

Create ContentCal posts for new favorited Pocket items

You've saved lots of articles to Pocket, and want to use specific posts in ContentCal. Getting those posts into ContentCal is manual. With this Zap, the process is automated. Save an item in Pocket, and it will appear in the ContentCal Pinboard.

Add new ContentCal posts to Buffer

ContentCal is a great way to plan and organize content with your team. However, sometimes, you may choose to use Buffer's more advanced publishing capabilities. Connect your ContentCal account to Buffer via Zapier, and your ContentCal posts will go through to Buffer for publishing automatically.

Create ContentCal posts for new starred Slack messages

It's common that useful pieces of content are created or shared in Slack which requires lots of copying and pasting efforts. Zapier's Slack and ContentCal integration removes this problem by automatically adding the content from a starred message into a ContentCal Pinboard.

Create ContentCal posts from new Airtable records

If you use Airtable for marketing, you likely have useful content you want to publish to social media channels. Using this Zap, you can automatically send records from a view in Airtable to a ContentCal Pinboard. From here you can edit, schedule, and publish in ContentCal.

Create ContentCal posts for new Slack channel messages

Slack Channels are a great place for your team to add content. Getting those messages into ContentCal, however, is a manual task that wastes time. With this Zap, any message sent to a Channel will be automatically added to your ContentCal Pinboard, saving you time and effort.

Create Pinterest pins for new ContentCal posts

So, you've created the perfect content plan and added Pinterest posts in ContentCal. With Zapier's ContentCal and Pinterest integration, you can publish these posts to your Pinterest Boards. No more manually moving posts over.

Create Google spreadsheet rows for ContentCal posts

As a business, you may be asked to backup your data into an archive, potentially for legal reasons or reporting. This ContentCal and Google Sheets integration will automatically send your published posts from ContentCal to a Google Sheet of your choice. Your data will always be backed up.

Create ContentCal posts from new Google spreadsheet rows

Sometimes, teams who have access to spreadsheets may not be ContentCal users, meaning they have no way to contribute. With this integration, people can add content to a Google Sheet, and Zapier will send the content to a ContentCal Pinboard.

Create Airtable records from new ContentCal posts

Data loss can happen to any business, which can cause immense pains. This integration backs up all ContentCal published posts into Airtable, making sure companies always have a backup of their data.

Create ContentCal posts for new Google Form submissions

Sometimes people need a gentle push in the right direction to encourage them to contribute content to their business. Using Google Forms to create a form, you can send information straight to a ContentCal Pinboard. Google Forms provide a great, simple way of gathering information for your next content calendar.
