Timely tweets, posts, and updates; analytics, integrations, teamwork; from a web page, from your phone, from an app, from an email – they like to call it awesome.
Buffer is a smarter way to share what you want to share on Social Media.
Why use Buffer instead of regular Social Media posting?
Ah, yes. Great question.
Why exactly should I use Buffer?
If you’re working with individuals or companies and organizations on a website, they may likely be interested in social media. If that’s the case, consider telling them about Buffer.
What it does is simple. You add updates to your Buffer queue and it will be posted for you well spaced out over the day – and at the best times.
It’s like your magic box you can use anytime to fill with great Tweets, Facebook stories or LinkedIn updates. Just drop them in and you don’t have to ever worry about when it will be posted, it’s all taken care of by Buffer for you.
Three main ways to Buffer
You can learn all this from their site (which I recommend), but Buffer-ing is easy to do from from just about anywhere:
- In your browser via extensions or the web app (bufferapp.com),
- On your phone via a native app for either iOS or Android devices, and
- In major news reader apps like Pocket, Instapaper, Google Reader, Reeder, IFTTT, etc.
As an extension for your browser, you can buffer any page by clicking a button or even using keyboard shortcuts (Alt+b for instance). The option to “buffer” shows up in other neat places, too, like Twitter’s tweet box.
Start Buffering normal Tweets, so you can get all the additional analytics that Buffer has available for you. This includes the number of retweets, clicks on links, mentions and favorites all saved for you.
