Example Use Cases

  • Automate Link Shortening for Social Media Posts: Post to platforms like Twitter or Facebook with shortened links. Whenever a new blog post goes live on your CMS, use Pipedream to trigger a workflow that shortens the URL and posts an update with the shortened link to your social media accounts.

  • Dynamic QR Code Generation for Events: Create QR codes for event tickets or promotions. When a user registers for an event on Eventbrite, Pipedream can catch the webhook, shorten the event URL, and generate a QR code using Shorten.REST API, which can then be emailed to the attendee.

  • Link Analytics Integration with Google Sheets: Collect and analyze click data on your short links. Each time a short link is clicked, Pipedream can log the click data to a Google Sheet, allowing you to track performance and engagement over time without manual entry.
