How to Automate Facebook Page Posts to Pinterest in 5 Easy Steps [Free]

There are many social media platforms out there & it is difficult to keep up with them if you are a solo person.

Content Distribution is a game-changer concept, if used & leveraged properly it will give you some great results.

Enter Pinterest.

Pinterest is a Content Sharing Platform where you can create your own pins in the form of Images or Videos & share it on your board. With over 250 Million users on Pinterest, you should not ignore at any cost.

According to this Hootsuite study, over 90% of users look at the content to make purchase decisions. How cool is that!

Now I am not going to go deep into How you can market on Pinterest. I am no expert in that.

But I know the potential. So I thought what if I automate my Facebook Page Posts to Pinterest Automatically as soon as I share them on my timeline ( also with a link back to my website)

Wouldn’t that be awesome?

I did automate it using Integromat. Without wasting any time, let’s get on with it.

Follow these 5 Steps to Automate Facebook Page Posts to Pinterest:-

Step #1:- Create a New Scenario in Integromat

If you haven’t signed up for Integromat, do that first. Sign up here.

In the top right of your dashboard, create a new scenario.

Now Click on Facebook Page & Watch Posts. Integromat will trigger as soon as you share any Facebook Post on your Page.

That means it will be instant.

Now Select your Account, Page & Limit as 1 ( If you want Integromat to fetch 1 post at a time).

Now Choose where to start. Click on Manually & Select your latest post or for that matter any post from where you want to start automating.

If you choose 3rd recent post, it will start automating from your 3rd recent post & then after automatically posting on Pinterest whenever you share any post on Facebook Page.

Think of it as a queue.

Step #2:- Connect HTTP Module

Follow the below GIF & Connect the HTTP Module. Click on Get File & Under URL, Click on “Full Picture”.

That’s it. Hit OK & you are done. Save the Scenario from the bottom left menu.

Step #5:- Run your Scenario & Check

Finally, after saving the scenario, it is time to check if we have connected everything successfully.
