Buffer: Makes Scheduling and Sharing on Social Media a Snap (Pt. 2)

Buffer is a great application for scheduling and sharing social media. If you haven’t tried it. Head on over to get started, it’s free! One of my favorite features is Buffer’s ability to update your status on all your social platforms at once, it’s so powerful you can do that inside the application (which you’d expect) but also from inside Twitter, Facebook, and other social accounts you use the most (which you wouldn’t). What a time saver!

By setting aside 15-20 minutes in the morning or the night before, I can schedule about two days worth of posts on Twitter and even more on my other accounts. Of course, how far out you can schedule depends on how many times a day you post. The free version of Buffer limits you to scheduling 10 items for each platform. Upgrade and you can go crazy. I actually find the 10 limit useful because it requires me to check in to see what’s popular (hint: you can re-Buffer your greatest hits!) and interact with others’ content when it’s fresh.

Buffer: How to Make Scheduling and Sharing on Social Media a Snap (Pt. 1)

Trying to keep up with the social media Jones’ can lead you to throw up your hands in defeat. It’s hard work. Some of you have written to ask how I consistently find quality content and the time to publish on social. Like you, I struggled. Than I found Buffer.

Honestly, I couldn’t do what I do without Buffer. It lets me schedule posts for multiple social media platforms, find and share great curated content my networks are interested in, and measure what’s a hit and what’s not — all inside the application.

If any of this sounds useful, check out my video tutorial on Buffer’s top features. What do you like best about Buffer?
