How to Save Time Posting to Different Social Media Platforms all at Once

I make one post, try to at least once a day, and it goes to 4 platforms instantly.  I have an android mobile phone in case that is an issue.  First off, I downloaded the app IFTTT, I signed up on my PC at first as I like working off my pc instead of my tiny phone screen.  It’s an app that lets you connect various platforms together.  It uses what is called APPLETS and I use the one called “Sync your new Instagrams to a Pinterest board”.  What this does is when I click SHARE on my Instagram, that post automatically shows up on my Pinterest account. VIOLA!  With Pinterest taking over for google searches I want my material to show up there.

I also have my Instagram account set up as a business account.  This means my business Facebook page is linked automatically with my Instagram. so when I hit SHARE on my Instagram post, I click share to Facebook and BINGO it shows up on Facebook.

The last connection I did was connect my facebook page to my Twitter account. That means every time I post to my business Facebook page, it automatically goes to Twitter. I don’t even have to log into my Twitter account.  Head to https://www.facebook.com/twitter to find out how to connect the two accounts.

Can you see the pattern here yet? I have 4 social media platforms that I use, but I only make ONE POST!  I use INSTAGRAM as my main platform and with that one share, that post shows up on 3 other social media sites. Now I know what you are thinking, won’t my followers leave me when they see the same post 4 times? Um NO! Facebook’s algorithm sucks, business posts are not showing up as regularly in newsfeeds as they once were so your organic reach is low, twitter is chronological so unless your follower is on NOW they may not see the post, Instagram is a hashtag search as the newsfeed is owned by Facebook so people will see it when they search that hashtag & Pinterest is a search engine.  So the chances of a follower seeing your post 4 times is very slim, but covering the 4 big social media platforms the chances of more people seeing your content is great!!

This is just what I do, I am sure there are many other ways, maybe some even faster to make your social media post & get on with your day.  Leave a comment with what you do, or if you will try this and let me know how it goes.
