And Yet Another Free Tool!

I have a big project in the works for the website for my day job (more on that later), and I wanted to schedule a bunch of posts, more than Buffer can handle. And that's when I discovered IFTTT!

IFTTT is a simple, free website that does very complex things. You have two channels, and a trigger on one channel performs an action on another channel. I've already written an article about the possibilities for article and website promotion, but you can also use it to promote your ebooks, art, POD stores, and anything else that you might think of!

So instead of spending all that time promoting yourself, you can literally set it and forget it. Head over to IFTTT and start exploring all the possibilities, and see what you can come up with! As for me, I took a recipe that was on page about 15,000 in popularity. It's now in the top 200 pages, simply because of all the time I added it to promote things on my own web site.
