The first step in automating marketing images is to create a template. There are many ready-made templates to choose from, both static and animated, which can be used for various use cases. However, you can also create your own image designs using the online editor.
Within your template, you can mark certain elements, such as text and images, as dynamic placeholders. You can then set up a Zap to automatically insert dynamic content into these placeholders.
Every Zap starts with a trigger, followed by one or more actions. You can then use data from one of these apps, like titles and photos, to populate the dynamic elements of your template for automatic creation of unique visuals.
To create images using Zapier, add the Creatomate app with the Create Single Render event to your Zap. Then, select your template from step one and map any data you wish to use in your visuals.
It's as simple as that! With support for over 5000+ apps, you can use the tools that best suit your needs. For example, you can set up a Zap that automatically generates images when a new product is added to your Shopify store, when a new row is added to Google Sheets or Airtable, or when a new subscriber is added to Mailchimp, just to name a few. And as soon as the images have been generated, you can share them on social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, email them, and save them in Google Drive, among other options.
Take a look at our step-by-step Zapier tutorials, which cover use cases such as real estate listings, e-commerce products, customer reviews, quotes, and much more, to help you set up your own image automation workflow in minutes.
