Date(s) - 07/20/2016
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



IFTTT, pronounced like the word GIFT without the G, will automate tasks based around the If This Then That statement. In other words, IFTTT puts the Internet to work for you by generating simple connections with online products that you use every day. Going further, Amazon Echo and other digital assistants are technologies that you didn’t know you needed until now and they work very well with IFTTT.

In this webinar:

  • Understand what the Internet of Things is and how it will change the world.
  • Learn how to use IFTTT to connect with a variety of products and services.
  • Explore other automating tools like Zapier, Hootsuite, Buffer and others.
  • Gain access to resources to help you become more efficient online.
