5 Reasons You Should Use Buffer from a Social Media Manager

Let’s face it. All of us pretty much use some sort of Social Media on a daily basis. It’s everywhere, on our phones, on the TV, and on our computers. If you’re like me, I eat, sleep, and breathe social media. It’s my job!

It would be nearly impossible to accomplish the volume of posts needed to succeed in today’s digital marketing environment without good digital marketing automation software. That’s why I use Buffer for social media.

Here are a few reasons why you should use Buffer for social media:

Schedule Posts: Any Time, Any Place

Now, when you’re like me and working on multiple social media accounts a day you will want a solid, reliable Social Media posting platform. That’s where Buffer comes into play. Buffer lets you schedule posts, at any desired time and date. This helps you save posts on the fly that you’d like to share later, which keeps you on top of the process of digital marketing in continuous motion.

Research Trends: Keep up with the Latest

Not only is it great for scheduling posts, but it also gives you post recommendations as well! It’s easy to keep up with the latest trends in social media with Buffer’s all-in-one platform since it finds and presents new content suggestions to share for you. There’s no sense in all the extra work of retrieving benchmark articles. This cuts the time it takes to research great content yourself.

Access from Any Device: Stay Connected

So what exactly is Buffer? Buffer is a social media management tool that helps you share content you like on your social networks from anywhere (PC | Laptop | Tablet | Smartphone | Email), and helps you stay on top of your own content. If your role is to manage social media, or if your company uses Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin, then you can upload new content for all your profiles with any device and input method easily using Buffer. It helps you stay connected.

Get Recommendations: Improve Content

Buffer can also act as your go-to source for finding new and exciting content to read. If you’re looking for sources, integrate your regular Feedly list with Buffer for easy content suggestions. Just go to the Content → Suggestions Tab and find 25 new suggestions to read something new and related to what you do every day — then share it!

Track Related Feeds: Keep Tabs on the Competition

Also. You can keep tabs on the competition — literally. Observe blog feeds from competitors or related industry articles to adjust the direction of content. Take a look at what works and creates the best response. If you like to keep tabs on your favorite blogs and share them as soon as they publish any new article, then you can now do that inside Buffer with the ‘Feeds’ Tab. You can add up to 15 Feeds under each account (so ensure you pick your best 15) and share their new posts right within the app.
