    Your website is one of your first touchpoints with your potential customers and therefore critical to converting them to customers. Gathering their information from your site’s forms and adding them into your funnels can take time that you simply don’t have.

    IFTTT will enable you to stay on top of every opportunity - without spending a second more than you need to - with automations that organize, prioritize, and engage your prospects. Use IFTTT to automatically capture lead data from your Webflow site’s latest form submissions and have it sent to your CRM and business apps like Pipedrive, Monday.com, Salesforce, Google Sheets, Slack, and more. This way, you can save time on data transfers and deal tracking and instead focus on creating a plan to win their business.
