Flickr Integration


You need a Zapier account first. If you don't have an account, click here to create a Zapier account.


In this article, we will try integrating both ClickSend and Flickr. So what we want to achieve here is to send an SMS to a contacts list when you create a new album, alerting subscribers to check it out.

So, let's get started.


Step 1:

Login to your Zapier account. And then click Make a Zap! button.

Step 2:

Let's search and select Flickr as our trigger app. Next, check New Album as our trigger action. Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 3:

Let's link your Flickr account.

Select Choose Account.

Click Connect an Account button.

Sign in using your Yahoo account.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 4:

Let finish up our trigger app setup.

Go back to your Zapier setup page.

Then click Fetch & Continue button.

Lastly the Continue button.

Step 5:

Ok, let's set up our Action app. Let's search and choose ClickSend. 

Next select Send SMS to Contact List as our action. 

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 6:

Next, let's add your ClickSend account. Click Connect an Account button.

There should be a popup saying to add or allow your Zapier and ClickSend account to be linked together.

Type in your ClickSend username and API key.

Click the Test button to check if it was successful.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 7:

Let's set up our SMS message.

In the Contact List input box, select the contact list that you want to be informed about the image album.

Enter a custom generic message into the Message input box about the image using the Flickr placeholders (Title, Description) that can capture your audiences attention.

("Hey!, check out my new album on Flickr... etc)

Include an opt out at the end of the message ("Reply STOP to opt out").

Set the From input box as your name or Flickr account name.

Then click Continue button.

Step 8:

Let's finish up everything.

Click Create & Continue button.

Then the Finish button.

Lastly, name your Zap, and turn it ON
