Welcome to today’s article, where we will explain how you can connect your Thinkific account with a popular marketing platform BombBomb.com to increase your global reach.
Integrating Thinkific with the video email marketing platform BombBomb is an essential step for any online course creator, teacher, or trainer who wants to maximize student engagement. This integration allows instructors to create automated emails sent directly from their course platform to a student’s inbox when they complete a certain task in the class. This helps keep students engaged and encourages them to continue progressing through the course material.
But how are you going to achieve this integration? Look no further: Zapier is an automation tool that connects two different apps together without requiring the user’s coding knowledge or technical skills. And you can use this platform to connect Thinkific and BombBomb effortlessly – no hard work needed!
Step 1: Setting up the Integration
Signing up for Zapier
The first step to setting up the integration between Thinkific and BombBomb is signing up for Zapier. This platform allows you to create automated workflows (called Zaps) that connect two different apps without requiring coding knowledge or technical skills.
Creating a Zap
Once you are signed up, you will need to create a Zap. A Zap is an automated workflow that connects two different apps and enables them to communicate. You can create multiple Zaps depending on your specific needs and what kind of data you want to pass between the two platforms.
Connecting Thinkific and BombBomb to Zapier
Next, you will need to connect Thinkific and BombBomb with Zapier so they can communicate.
To do this, log into both accounts in separate browser windows, then go back to the Zapier dashboard where you created the Zap and click “Connect” for each app. This action will prompt a pop-up window where you can enter your credentials for each platform – once done, click “Sign In,” and now both platforms are connected!
Step 2: Trigger and Action Setup
Selecting Thinkific as the Trigger App
The first step is to select Thinkific as your trigger app in Zapier. Log into your account and click “Make a Zap” in the top right corner. This practice will bring you to the Zap Editor page, where you can create your automated workflow.
From here, search for “Thinkific” under the “Choose a Trigger App” section and click it when it appears in the results list.
Choosing the Trigger Event
Next, choose what action you want to trigger within Thinkific to cause an action in BombBomb. In this case, we will select “New Completion” – this event triggers when a student completes one of their course assignments or tasks. Once selected, click ‘Continue’ and enter your Thinkific credentials if prompted.
Configuring the Trigger
After logging into your Thinkific account, configure which course’s completions should be monitored by selecting it from the list of available courses (or typing in its name). You can also filter further by choosing specific classes or topics if needed – this way, you can have different workflows for different types of completions within each course!
Click ‘Continue’ once finished with this step and move on to configuring our Action app – BombBomb!
Selecting BombBomb as the Action App
On the next screen, search for “BombBomb” under ‘Choose an Action App,” then click it when it appears in the results list. We will now set up which action we want BombBomb to take whenever a student completes a task on their course within Thinkific.
Choosing The Action Event
For this example, we will select ‘Send Video Email’ – this will send out an automated video email whenever someone completes an assignment or task within their course on Thinkific. Once selected, click ‘Continue’ and enter your BombBomb credentials if prompted before continuing to configure our Action event!
Configuring The Action
Now comes the time to customize our video email template with whatever content you want: title, message text, recipient address(es), attachment(s), etc. Use all these options and any other customization settings (like subject line formatting) to ensure that every email sent out looks professional. It reflects well upon you/your organization’s brand identity!
Once everything is configured properly, just hit ‘Test & Continue’ at the bottom of the page. The test run should be successful after running through all steps correctly – if not, try tweaking some settings until you’re satisfied, then hit ‘Done Editing’ at the top left corner before finally hitting the ‘Turn On Zap!’ button.
Congratulations – now every completion made within any class/topic of yours on Thinkific will automatically trigger sending out personalized video emails via BombBomb without needing any additional manual effort from yourself!
Testing the Integration
Once you have set up the integration between Thinkific and BombBomb via Zapier, you must test it to ensure everything works correctly. To do this, you’ll want to create a “test Zap” that will send a test email from your course platform directly to an email address of yours. This way, you can ensure the integration is functioning properly before sending automated emails to students.
Before running the test Zap, it’s important to check all of the settings in both apps – Thinkific and BombBomb – and make sure they are configured correctly. Once you’ve double-checked everything, go ahead and run the test Zap.
If it works successfully, then great! You now know that your integration is working properly and that emails sent through this automation tool will be received by students as intended.
But what if something goes wrong? Don’t worry – troubleshooting common issues with integrations like this one isn’t too difficult.
Check for errors in both apps (Thinkific and BombBomb) and within Zapier itself (including any third-party services connected through Zapier). If all else fails, contact their support team for help or consult a professional developer specializing in integrating different software platforms.
