:rocket: What can users do with Paperform and Make?

:email: Create personalized email marketing campaigns generated from Paperform lead magnets:

Once your fully customisable Paperform submits the form, Make will add them to a relevant email list in MailChimp, ActiveCampaign or any number of email marketing software. This list can be automatically built in the background ready for when you need it.

:speech_balloon: Effortlessly gather customer feedback:

Establish a streamlined feedback loop that keeps your business connected to its customers. Seamlessly syncing customer feedback submissions with your CRM, where you can set up a trigger in Make that tags users based on their answers to specific questions.

:shopping_cart: Connect your order forms to your e-commerce store or order management system:

Leverage the power of Paperform’s registration or order forms and simplify your sales processes. When a new order is placed by a customer Paperform, instantly create an account in your WooCommerce or Shopify store and add it to your project or order management system such as Airtable. All without lifting a finger.

:make: Do you Make?

Yes! One thing that we find particularly useful is setting up scenarios for job applications.

  • First, we collect the applicant data with Paperform and use Calculations to filter out text errors (like incorrect email addresses, multiple submissions, etc.).

  • Then we trigger a few automations in Make: first, the data is sent to Google Sheets and neatly organized, then it’s sent to one of our project management tools (Airtable, Asana, JIRA) which differs based on the team.

  • Finally, a message is sent in Slack with a summary of the details and links to the resumes/LinkedIn profile etc.

  • We can then trigger automated emails to update the applicant on the status of their application.

With Make and Paperform, the entire process is automated from resume submission to booking in the first interview call.

:thought_balloon:To the Makers…

At Paperform, we believe that automation and creativity can work hand in hand. By empowering individuals and teams to automate repetitive tasks and processes, we enable them to focus on the creative and strategic work that drives innovation and growth. With our platform, we aim to help businesses of all sizes unleash their full potential and achieve their goals, one form at a time.
