Description

I saved over $50,000 per year in my business by using Zapier, and maybe you can too. When Zapier came along, it introduced a revolutionary way of connecting apps that was accessible, affordable, and simple for anyone to do. I started using Zapier, and I was hooked.

In this brand new course, I cover a huge amount of content and recently released features that may not be touched on in other courses.

If you're after a way to connect your business apps in a simple, powerful way, this is for you. 

If you are a startup, an entrepreneur, a small business, or even part of a big company, you can save money and time by using this product. 

You'll learn the fundamentals of setting up Zapier, as well as extending yourself into some more advanced functionality. Even if you know how to use Zapier, there is bound to be some new material that you may not have been exposed to before.

At the end of the course, the Capstone Project will bring everything together in an assignment that relates to your business. As a special bonus, I'll offer you free feedback and guidance on your assignment Zap to help you on your journey.
