Set up a Hubspot sales gong using Gleebeam and Zapier

Announce closed deals to your team by playing a gong sound and showing a notification on the TV dashboards around the office. In this guide we’ll be using Zapier to trigger a Gleebeam notification whenever a new sales deal is closed on Hubspot.

1. Create a notification template on Gleebeam

In your Gleebeam account, create a template for the notification you want to receive each time a deal is closed.

Navigate to the Sound menu in the sidebar and select the gong sound.

Click Save & Exit once you’re done to return to the templates view. We will return to Gleebeam later in the tutorial. Let’s continue by setting up Zapier.

2. Set up the Zapier trigger event

Create a new zap in your Zapier account. Select Hubspot as the trigger app. Set the trigger event to New Deal in Stage and click Continue.

Select the deal pipeline and deal stage you’d like to track.

Proceed by clicking Continue and you’ll be asked to test the connection between Zapier and Hubspot. Do this to make sure everything is set up properly so far. For this step to succeed, you must have at least one deal in the specified stage on Hubspot.

3. Set up the Zapier action event


⭐️ Gleebeam now has an official Zapier integration, which makes setting up actions in Zapier much simpler. Click this link to learn how to use it and skip this section in the tutorial.


For your action app choose Webhooks by Zapier. Set POST as the action event.

In the next step you will be asked to provide the data to send with the action event. Back in your Gleebeam account click on the template you created to view its automation data.

Viewing the Gleebeam notifications API data

Copy the API URL and the JSON data to the respective form fields in Zapier as shown in the image below. Set Payload Type to “Json”.

Zapier will ask you to test the action. Once you do that you should receive the notification you created on the Gleebeam dashboard. Moreover, you should also hear a gong sound. All you now need to do is to turn on the zap and focus on selling!

You’re all set!

Set up the Gleebeam dashboard on screens in your office for your team to celebrate whenever a sales deal is won! I hope this serves as a good automated alternative to a physical sales gong. Let me know what you think in the comments!
