Information: This article is only intended to show the basics of Abyssale's creative automation and describes a straightforward image generation process.

Multiple tactics can be considered for attracting leads. One of them is to giveaway coupon codes to newcomers, allowing them to use your service freely for a specific period of time or benefit from a discounted price.

Automating the process of generating fully-personalized image for each lead containing his/her name as well as the coupon code can help to ensure a good customer experience & remove the burden of manually creating images.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to generate personalized images from incoming Typeform entries with Abyssale via our Zapier integration.

PS: Using an Abyssale chatbot integration instead of Typeform/Zapier is much more adapted to this use case but is more complicated (this will be covered in another article).

Abyssale: Let's configure our sample template

If you don't have any Abyssale account yet, sign up for a free Abyssale account.

  1. Login to your Abyssale account
  2. On the top navigation bar click on "Public Templates"
  3. Search for the "eCommerce - Voucher" template
  4. Click "Use template" to add this template to your own templates list. A modal will open in which you have to enter the template name (and remember it for the Zapier integration step).

You will be redirected to the template edit page.

On the Template editor you can edit/rename/remove/add any existing elements. Feel free to adapt it to your needs. Once all modifications are done, you will be able to save your template.

As you can see, this template is quite basic: a logo, a picture with a grayscale filter & 5 text areas. With the Zapier integration, the text_person_name element will dynamically fill the user name from the Typeform entry.

Typeform

For the sake of simplicity,  the "free-giveaway Typeform template" will be used.

Even though this Typeform template could be modified to fit our use case (by removing the last step), it will be used as it is. The most important step here is the one that ask the user name. This information will be used to populate the Abyssale template.

What you should do:

  • Add this template to your own Typeform list.

Zapier: Connect Typeform + Abyssale

To trigger the Abyssale generation API for each Typeform entry, an integration service (such as Zapier, Integromat, IFTTT...) is required.

Part 1: Create a Zap

  1. Create a Zapier account (If you don't have one yet).
  2. Connect to your Zapier account (this service can be seen as a glue between Typeform & Abyssale).
  3. Create a new Zap.
  4. Choose Typeform in the list of applications & select "New entry" in the Trigger Event list.

Part 2: Connect Typeform to Zapier

Part 3: Connect Abyssale to Zapier

  1. Once the Typeform trigger is fully configured, the next step is to connect the Abyssale banner generation "Action".
  2. Connect your Abyssale account to Zapier
  3. Choose the "Generate banners from template" action, a list containing all of your templates will become available.
  4. Choose the previously created Abyssale template (initially: eCommerce - Voucher - Coupon code example; If you've renamed it, please enter the new template name).

  2. Find the Element Text Title area, and fill the payload with the "First up, what's your name" element coming from Typeform. (if you don't see this option in the list, click on the Show All Options)
