How to Use IFTTT to Automate Your Life and Business 2



How to Use IFTTT to Automate Your Life and Business.

In this video tutorial I will be talking about how to set up your IFTTT applets. What is IFTTT? It stands for IF THIS THEN THAT. In essence it connects applications and devices together to automate things and make your life just a bit easier. These “applets” as they are called are “recipes” that trigger certain actions between apps and/or devices. Some of the many apps and devices that I set both for my business and personal life are Facebook to my iPhone, Twitter to my Instagram.

There are literally hundreds if not thousands of combinations of these applets you can set up which will definitely benefit you and your business.

  1. Hi, Thanks Jen, thanks for the video… I have tried several times but failed to connect my Instagram account to my blog. I wanted by blog to showcase any photo I post on my Instagram Account. How can that be done?

  2. Hi Jen, I just recently discovered IFTTT and found your video here. Very informative, thank you!

    I'm curious though. With that last recipe, would there be any way to have it post a random photo each time?
