Automation is a great way to save time within your business. You can grow your business and it’s effectiveness by automating as many processes as possible. The free website If This Then That allows for automation between many different websites and services.
When you sign up for IFTTT, you can activate different Channels, such as Facebook or Twitter, based on the services and sites you use (currently 116 Channels are available). Once you have different Channels chosen, you create Recipes that instruct IFTTT to create an action when a trigger is set off. For example, if you post a new Facebook status, you can have it also post to your Twitter account.
IFTTT does a great job of showcasing new and popular recipes, but you can also get creative and create recipes that work for your business needs. Recipe creation is an easy process and IFTTT walks you through each step. I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite business related IFTTT recipes in the upcoming weeks.
Give IFTTT a try to see how automation can help your business grow!
