Published on Feb 28th, 2024

In today's fast-paced business environment, efficiency is key, and integrating your sales tools can significantly streamline processes. Zapier, a prominent automation tool, can be the bridge that connects various apps with your HubSpot CRM, ensuring a seamless flow of data and a more efficient sales pipeline.

Let's dive into how to use Zapier to add leads or deals into a pipeline in HubSpot.

Step 1: Set up Your Zapier and HubSpot Accounts
Before you start, make sure you have active accounts on both Zapier and HubSpot. If you haven’t already, sign up and get acquainted with their interfaces.

Step 2: Choose Your Trigger App
Once logged in to Zapier, click on ‘Make a Zap’. Select the application that you want to trigger the addition of a new lead or deal to your HubSpot pipeline. This could be a form submission on your website, a scheduled event, or any activity from numerous apps that can be connected via Zapier.

Step 3: Choose a Trigger Event
After selecting your trigger app, pick the event that will prompt the action in HubSpot. For example, it could be a new form entry or a new appointment on your scheduling platform.

Step 4: Connect and Set up Your Trigger
Follow the prompts to connect your trigger app to Zapier and set up the details of the trigger event. This may include logging into the app through Zapier and granting permissions for data access.

Step 5: Choose HubSpot as Your Action App
Once your trigger is set, search for HubSpot in the action app section. Select it to define the action that will be taken in your HubSpot account.

Step 6: Choose the Action Event in HubSpot
In this case, you'll likely choose an event that corresponds to adding a new lead or deal to a pipeline. HubSpot’s options will vary depending on available actions, but look for options like ‘Create Deal’ or ‘Create Contact’.

Step 7: Connect Your HubSpot Account
Connect your HubSpot account to Zapier by logging in and authorizing Zapier to access your data, if you haven't already done so.

Step 8: Set Up Action Details
Specify which pipeline and stage your new leads or deals should be added to. You will also need to map out the data from your trigger app to the corresponding fields in HubSpot.

Step 9: Test Your Zap
Before making it live, test your Zap to ensure that the data flows correctly from the trigger app to your HubSpot pipeline as desired.

Step 10: Activate Your Zap
Once you are satisfied with the setup and test outcomes, activate your Zap. From this point, the specified trigger will automatically add new leads or deals to your HubSpot pipeline.

With the ability to integrate numerous applications and automate tasks between them, leveraging Zapier in conjunction with HubSpot can lead to remarkable efficiency gains in your sales process. As leads come in from different channels, they can be instantly entered into the correct stage of your sales pipeline, providing real-time data and the ability to rapidly respond to potential customers.
