In this video tutorial
I'm going to show you how to connect a Pinterest RSS feed
to autopost to a Facebook business page.
Login to IFTTT.com.
Click "Create."...Click "This."
Click "RSS Feed."...Click "New feed item."
Copy and paste in your Pinterest RSS feed.
Clck "Create Trigger."
Click "That."...Choose "Facebook pages."
Click "Create a link post."
Delete out "Entry URL." Add a new ingredient..."EntryImageURL."
In the message box... you could put a smiley face — if you like.
Type "New... hash tag "Pinterest pin."
I add a tilda sign, type the word, "Click,"
add our first ingredient: "Entry URL."
Type "to see" colon...
add another ingredient, "Entry content."
Space...I type a tilda sign again. Type, "visit."
I use a hash tag with a Keyword.
It can be your business name, or it could be a keyword related to one of your Pinterest boards.
Type the word "boards at."
Add another ingredient... "Feed URL."
Click, "Create action."
Type a description.
"Pinterest to Facebook Page." Click, "Create Recipe."
And, that's it for your Recipe.
Here's an example on Facebook. You can see our smiley face... "New Pinterest pin"...
If you click the first link, it's going to take you to the pin...over on Pinterest.
We have the description, that pulled in.
We have our business name used, with the hash tag.
If you click the link after that, it takes us over to our Pinterest boards, our home page.
In this case the image came in, which is what we want.
And... every now and then, these links come in a little bit funny with the image.
I click on this link for the image...
This is a good example. It just comes back to our Facebook page.
But... if you look at the example below this,
where we did a pin to our College Board, if I click on that one...
It actually comes to the Pinterest Pin.
So the image links come in a little bit funny right now,
but at least you're creating a link to your Pinterest pin,
a link to a board over on Pinterest, whether it be a single board or your home page, of all your boards.
And you've got your image... and it's all automated.
So, go ahead and try it out, and see how you like it.
