Few days back, I was wondering if there is a better way to be notified when we make an Ad Sale on BuySellAds Platform. If there was a mobile app from BuySellAds, that would have been awesome! Though, what a timely solution did I got when I logged into BloggingeHow's BSA account and was notified of the new integration they have made with Zapier.
BuySellAds is here with a bang! Finally we can get Ad Sales notifications on our mobile/Desktop devices seamlessly!
Zapier is a 3rd party web services integration tool just like IFTTT (If This Then That) or Tasker. What it does is that it lets you connect popular services we use online to make our life easier. For example, you could make an integration that your parents are notified via SMS every time you reach your school/office.
So BuySellAds have finally joined hands with Zapier where we can use pre-made integration. In this post, I'll show you how we can be notified on Slack's mobile app (Slack is a team chat tool that is by far one of the best ones out there to manage teams and communications with in them) or via your desktop notifications.
Lets get started!
- Step #1 Create an account with Zapier.
- Go this very Zapier link which will take you to the popular BSA zaps. Choose the one that says "Send BuySellAds orders to Slack". Click it and it would ask you to signup/signin. Make the account quickly.
Once the account is made, you will see the page as shown below.
Hit 'Make This Zap' orange button and would say "Activating your Internet Power..." and will ask you to connect your BSA account. Follow Step 2 from here on.
- Step #2 BuySellAds Integration
- Now into your BSA account's Profile and scroll down where it says "Zapier Integration". Click that button and it will make a Zapier unique key for you.
Add this key to your Zapier page in the last step and it will connect your BSA account with Zapier.
Next up it will ask you to create a Slack account if you don't have one before. I've already made that so that account shows up as below. We are using slack in between as they have a great mobile app for android and most probably iPhone too.
Once that's done, you have to customize your message that you'll get on your slack's mobile app. Follow the next step for this.
- Step #3 Customize Notification For Slack App
- Now simply add fields that you wish to be part of the notification that you'll get on your slack's mobile app. You can insert your advertiser's name, your ad creative, advertisers company name, ad price and lot more. Take a look at the image below.
These were the easy steps that would now integrate your Buysellads account with slack via zapier. Once this integration is made, it will be shown in your zapier account as shown in the image below.
Hope this was helpful. If there is anything that you could'nt get in this post, kindly leave out a comment below and I'll get back to it InshaAllah.
Best of luck with getting Buysellads AdSold notificaitons on your mobile phone :)
