Bufferapp is one such twitter app for bloggers and social media users, that will help them to keep their profile engage and also maintain the noise. Here I’m going to share Bufferapp review and then you can decide if you need to invest this app or not.
How many of you tweet all the interesting post you go through? I believe those who are power tweeters, must be tweeting 30/40 links in a day. Though if we tweet in the regular interval it’s good but if we tweet all the links back to back, it might be considered as spam or probably your followers will tend to ignore it.
Why Bufferapp is useful for you:
Let me start with my own habit, when I start reading news, I use a feed reader and in that short span of time, I read like 20+ posts and many of them I find interesting and want to share with my followers on Twitter or Facebook.
But, this is not a wise idea to send out lots of tweets or social media updates in a short span. Too much of social media updates will irritate your genuine followers, and they will not be able to catch up with all the updates.
Social media tools like AgoraPulse, SocialPilot, Buffer, comes as a rescue for social savvy people like you and me. In past 4 years, I have used all these tgree popular social media scheduling tool and today I’m sharing a review of Buffer app.
Using Buffer, you keep adding tweets to your stack and it will keep sending it out at the scheduled time. You can define time-slot for Tweets, and tweets will be sent in particular time slot from your buffer.
Specially when you are going through your feed reader, you tend to tweet all the interesting post, at least that’s what I do. With the tool like Buffer, you don’t need to worry about tweeting too much and you can tweet everything you want after a certain time gap. This will help your social media profile to be seen on a regular basis which is an important aspect of social media marketing.
How to add Tweets to your Buffer?
Bufferapp offers a couple of ways by which you can add tweet into your buffer. You can use their online website (Bufferapp) and add tweets into the buffer, or most easy way is by installing their browser extensions or by using Android or iOS app.
In my case I use Chrome browser and I have their chrome extension installed. So whenever I’m reading any interesting tutorial, I just click on Bufferapp icon and it will bring a pop-up, where I can edit the tweet. Here is a screenshot which will clear all your doubts:
By default post meta title and permalink will be added and you can always edit and customize it according to your need. If you have added multiple-Twitter-profile, you can always select from which twitter profile, you would like to send this tweet.
Here I’m sharing some of the notable features of Bufferapp:
- Supports multiple Twitter profile
- Support multiple Facebook Pages
- Support Google plus pages
- Supports Instagram (Direct publishing coming soon)
- Supports LinkedIn
- Offer browser extensions (Chrome, Safari)
- Integrated with SocialBro, Pocket and many other popular apps.
- Bufferapp Blog buttons are available.
They offer a lot of integration options and you can check out all these on the Buffer Goodies page.
Setting the Interval for Tweets:
This is the most important part of Bufferapp. The idea of Buffer is to tweet without creating much noise and irritating your followers. So you need to set up time interval carefully. If you tweet a lot, you can always select a time interval of 1-2 hours. Don’t forget to refer to our previous article on Find the best time to tweet to make it more effective.
Note: Use different time gap for the different social media platform. For example, its ok to tweet in every 1-2 hour on Twitter but it’s not the best thing to do on Facebook. So, when you add a new social media profile, configure the time gap accordingly.
Here are some more exciting features which will interest you to try this app:
Multiple profile option:
You can use Bufferapp to add multiple Twitter profile. Buffer also supports other social media network such as Facebook, Google plus, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest to name a few.
You can assign account to another member, who can add, remove tweets from buffer. This feature is good for those bloggers who are running blog network or particularly for blogs with multiple members.
Though I would like to see some more features in future like adding tweets from a feed, this will be really helpful for bloggers who post lots of posts in a day. This way they can tweet within the limit in particular time set. Over I liked the idea of Bufferapp and I have been using it for last one month.
