1. It’s super easy to set up, connect your social media accounts and begin using.
Buffer allows you to set the timeframes that you’d like posts to go out for each social media platform and will recommend posting times for you.
Once you set your posting times, you never have to do this step again.
2. The analytics are wonderful and Buffer notifies you right away if a post starts to take off!
Buffer is truly a company that shows how much they enjoy what they do and they make the analytics reporting process super fun if they see that your posts are gaining traction!!
Buffer stores your posts, making it effortless to re-buffer (re-post) older posts at any time.
Re-buffering posts is my favorite Buffer feature.
When I see posts that did well, I allow some time in between and use the re-buffer feature to post it again in 2 weeks or a month or so later.
3. It’s totally free but upgrading to the awesome plan ($10 monthly) is so worth it!
With the free plan you can schedule a good amount of posts at a time get a certain amount of access to the analytics page for your most recent posts.
For example, if you are only using Facebook and Twitter, you can schedule a full week’s worth of Facebook posts in advance (if you are posting to Facebook twice a day) and get approximately 2 to 3 days worth of Twitter posts scheduled in advance (depending on how often you publish tweets).
However, with the Awesome plan, there is no limit to how many posts you can schedule in advance at a time.
If you will be taking vacation for two weeks or away for a month, you can schedule all your posts and Buffer will continue to buffer those posts while you’re away!
Not only is buffer free but they also offer a free image editor called Pablo where you can create beautiful social media images in minutes or less.
Pablo includes a preset stock of inspirational quotes which also makes it super simple to create inspirational and motivational social media posts.
If you’re not currently using a social media scheduler or finding it tough with your current social media scheduler, I highly recommend trying out Buffer.
A bonus reason I love Buffer is their warm email newsletters and email responses.
Buffer has great customer service, and they treat their team members like family!!
To your success,
P. S. – What’s your favorite social media scheduler, and what do you like most about it?
