Sharing your Tribes Posts via Twitter

If I had to list my least favourite social media networks then Twitter would be pretty high up in the list. I am a visual person and with the rate that twitter works plus the amount of text even when broken up with Twitter Card images it’s just not something that I can get my head around. However, we know we are all not alike and some people love it, others hate it. But, it can be a traffic driver and there are systems that you can use to send out tweets; schedulers, automatic feeds from your site etc… Today though I’m focusing on sharing your tribe’s posts via Twitter.

Step by Step Guide on how to automate your blogging tribe's posts to be shared on your Twitter feed each time they publish.

Why automation is going to be your friend!

As I said I don’t like Twitter but from experience, I’m trying to reach my audience and they could be on Twitter. As it’s something I don’t like if I spend time there I find it a chore and start to dislike it even more so I’m one of those people that will automate.

I already automate my own posts there – every time a new post is published on my site it gets sent to Twitter for me. I think there maybe a second tweet as well later in the day, but I’m not entirely sure.

However, just my content would make for a very boring and useless feed for others so I set up some automations with my tribe so that I can send quality content out to my followers over there. And it’s really easy to do and FREE.

Setting up your IFTTT statements to share your tribe’s posts

If you have never used IFTTT before then it’s so easy to use and helps no end. I’m gradually using it more and more and the latest is to share my tribe’s posts via Twitter.

It would be nice if I could hand you over the applet that works but this is one of the automations that is going to take you a little time to set up if you are doing the FREE route but once in place, it will just run.
