Do you use social media within your marketing?
Do you use IFTTT?
Social media is a great way to connect with your customers and let you grow your business, however it can sometimes be very taxing on your resources.
This is especially true if you don’t have a big budget for people to work on your social media platforms, which is why it’s essential to make it easy for yourself.
This is where IFTTT comes in.
IFTTT allows you to create recipes to make your life easier, and to save you time essentially.
From Twitter to Facebook, Linkedin to Evernote, WordPress to Google Plus, IFTTT automatically updates your profiles if you do a particular action.
Within this blog post, you’ll discover 3 brilliant IFTTT recipes that you need to take advantage off, and why IFTTT should be used within your social media marketing.
As you spend more and more time on social media, making your life easier is a must.
You need to be personal on social media, but you also need to save time by scheduling your posts, so you don’t waste time.
This is where it gets a bit tricky, that IFTTT can help with.
IFTTT allows you to set up recipes, so when you do a particular action, it performs another action.
For example, if you set up a Facebook to Twitter recipe, every time you post on Facebook, it’ll also post the same content on Twitter.
These recipes are hand picked to save you time, but also make you seem personal and engaging to your audience too.
Instagram To Twitter
This one is a real classic and a true gem.
Whenever you post a Instagram photo, this IFTTT recipe automatically posts a Twitter update to your profile.
As Tweets with photos gain a lot mote traction than those without, this recipe Tweets with an image, and adds a caption too, so its fantastic!
The great thing about Instagram is that its time relevant to your business, so it’s perfect for your Twitter audience too!

The great element about the WordPress to Twitter recipe in particular, is that it pulls the image from your blog post through to Twitter.
This will look great on your Twitter feed, and it’s automatic!
IFTTT works best when it doesn’t look too automatic, so use this recipe to highlight your most current updates.
Facebook Update To Linkedin
If you have a fantastic Facebook page, linking this with your Linkedin profile is highly recommended.
Your Linkedin connections can discover a real insight into you and your business, and as Facebook is similar to Linkedin in many ways (that relates to how often posts are generally published on each platform), this recipe is golden.
A warning though, this update can become messy if you regularly publish more than one photo within one Facebook update, as this will appear as lots of different Linkedin updates on your feed, so watch out.
Use this recipe if you consistently post one Facebook image within an update, and it’ll work wonders for your marketing!
