In today’s face paced digital business world, time is money and automation is key. There is a new development floating around out there in the form of a mobile application that just might top your iPhone's personal assistant Siri.
This app that you probably have not heard about will help you completely automate your digital life while saving you a ton of time in the process. 'If this, then that' shortens to IFTTT, and that's all you need to remember because this amazingly simple yet powerful service can automate just about anything else, from backing up your photos on Facebook to sending you text message reminders of upcoming appointments.
For example, we manage a ton of Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts for various clients through our social media management services. Part of that service includes maximizing our clients Instagram engagement activity on a daily basis (liking 1000 photos, commenting on 500 photos, following 250 new users).
Keeping track of the activity for the client is vital to the success of the program. We use an IFTTT recipe to track the activity being performed in real-time which automatically saves to our Google Drive Account in a spreadsheet.
The best part about IFTTT is it is 100% FREE. No advertisements, no funny business, just total automation at your fingertips! Here’s a few of our favorite recipes that we use for one of our clients DynaPro Direct. You can implement these right now for free:
