IFTTT is a tool to create recipes to simplify your social media strategy. It’s not just for your blog. It’s for basically every social media network or another supported website around, and it lets you create a simplified life online. It doesn’t matter what blogging platform you use, more than likely, it is supported by IFTTT. However, if for example, you are on another network…you can easily just use your RSS Feed to send information and new blog posts to IFTTT. Am I speaking another language? Visit IFTTT to get familiar with their platform and applets (which are FREE!).
- Instagram to Twitter is my FAVORITE IFTTT recipe. It’s simple to set up and you can “forget” it once you do. This recipe will upload your Instagram photos to your Twitter feed and provide a link too. Instead of just a boring text post, your Twitter feed will be full of vibrant images from your Instagram feed. You can also duplicate this recipe to send Instagram photos to Twitter and your Facebook page.
- Tweet your WordPress posts.
- Grab your RSS Feed to share NEW blog post updates to your Facebook, Twitter, and add to your Buffer account. Share your blog posts multiple times across multiple networks. You can do this by automating your first share to Twitter with IFTTT. Then, create a new “recipe” with your RSS Feed that sends your update to Buffer. This will tweet it out later depending on your Buffer settings. I share each blog post at least three times.
- Share Instagram photos to Pinterest. I share Instagram photos with #BloggersGetSocial to a special board on Pinterest. I do this to promote our daily Instagram challenge.
We can all agree that juggling social media platforms can be exhausting, so simplify the process by using IFTTT!
