I’m a little ashamed to admit that I’m a little late to the IFTTT party. I first heard about the web tool shortly after its debut in 2011, but it wasn’t until the last two weeks that I was reintroduced and blown away.

I guess I’m not the only newbie to IFTTT – an online platform that stands for “If This Then That”. Once you sign up for an account, you choose your apps (eg, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Dropbox) to discover “recipes” that connect one product to Hungary WhatsApp Number List another product or app. Once you connect the two apps, the direct connection runs seamlessly in the background.

For example, if you’re using the #FB Twitter recipe, post one of your Twitter posts to your Facebook page by simply typing #FB in the tweet.

The options are nearly endless as IFTTT natively integrates with a huge number of apps and a host of other apps when using third-party software.

As an automation and productivity lover, I have fully embraced IFTTT and developed my recipes which are proving particularly useful. With these 17, I use or will use them to affect my content marketing projects.

Post Instagram photos as native Twitter images

I use Instagram and Twitter a lot, and often share updates from the former to the latter – but I hate how Instagram doesn’t natively add its image to Twitter.

 

With this IFTTT recipe, you’ll do just fine. Every Instagram image you post (or include a specific hashtag in, for example) is as a native Twitter image.

Fill out a Google sheet with your email notes

I rely on Gmail for a lot of things, one of them being to send me notes of all kinds, including content ideas. To transfer ideas from Gmail to a Google Sheet, I had to log in to my email, find the email, copy the content, open a Google Sheet, and paste the content. With this recipe, this process is automated based on a specific phrase used in the email, for example.

3. Fill out a Google sheet every time you are  on Twitter

This great recipe keeps track of brand mentions (personal or business) similar to the email recipe, but instead this version adds a line to a Google sheet when the first name is mentioned on Twitter.

 

4. Tweet something when a specific tag or phrase is in a content feed

Fantastic for adding a bit of automation to your social media activity, this recipe looks at a specific content feed (maybe Feedly’s) and when a certain tag or phrase is , it tweets your account (or add it to Buffer).

I’m a big fan of live tweeting, but I like a bit of automation and it’s great for doing just that – think of it as a support tool rather than a replacement.

 

5. Send a “Watch Later” YouTube Video to Pocket

I love Pocket. When I discovered the online “filing cabinet” that stores articles, videos, and other content that I want to read later, it truly changed the way I interact with content. When possible, I like to have everything in one place for reference – and with this recipe I can add YouTube videos that I’ve marked as wanting to watch at a later date in my pocket.

 

6. Email Yourself When You’re on Reddit

Want to know when you (or a certain brand) are on Reddit? With this simple recipe, you will receive an email as soon as your name is .

 

7. Create a Google Calendar entry based on a phone call

IFTTT has a range of cool features, but its phone feature has to be one of the coolest. In essence, you can invoke IFTTT to trigger a range of potential processes.

Unfortunately, this option only works for US numbers, so I haven’t been able to try it myself, but I’ve seen a lot of people use it as a log management process.
