Overall Satisfaction with Buffer

I manage a team of students that post on social media. They have analyzed the best times to post and how to carefully curate content. Buffer makes it so easy to post when you want by scheduling the times you want specific content posted. We mainly use Buffer with Twitter, but it works with Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest (paid-version only). Our click and like rates have improved since we began using Buffer. I receive a weekly email with the breakdown of how each tweet performed.
  • Allows you to right-click and choose to post with Buffer. Puts the image in there for you too!
  • Sends a weekly feedback report.
  • Allows easy scheduling of posts. You can set up a predetermined posting schedule which is great when you know the times you plan to post.
  • I wish Instagram was a connected social network.
  • They used to provide suggestions of what to tweet if you did not have anything in the queue. It was great and I'd love for them to bring it back!
  • We have increased our Twitter followers.
  • The dashboard lets me know what tweets did well. I can take this information along with the post time to curate targeted posts.
  • The emails Buffer sends are invaluable! Free classes, studies, templates, etc. These are not just fluff emails - I read and use something in almost each one!
Buffer was just the most simple to use. There was not a learning curve for any of us. The added perks (dashboards, informative emails) were obvious and easy to take advantage of and put to work for us.
Our main Twitter contributor called it life-changing! That did not happen with the competition!
I think Buffer works great for a social media account(s) where you post on a regular basis, several times a day. However, Buffer is so easy to use, I would recommend it for a personal account as well. There is now an incorporated image creator (Pablo) so you can create or an improve upon an existing image. No excuses for posts without images!
