Overall Satisfaction with Buffer

I have used Buffer to publish social media posts for small businesses. The scheduling features, automation, and tools they have available are useful for planning a social media program. It is a very simple program that offers the ability to schedule posts to go out to multiple platforms at once.
  • scheduling
  • free trial
  • posting times
  • more social media networks
  • Increased posting on social media
  • increased interaction with social media posts
Buffer had the best free version, but Zoho Social had the most social media channels available in the price range.
Hootsuite was the tool we first wanted, but the price was considerably more, for tools we are not sure if we need at this time.

Do you think Buffer delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Buffer's feature set?


Did Buffer live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Buffer go as expected?


Would you buy Buffer again?


Very easy to use overall. Sometimes the customizing for specific channels can get confusing. The free version really only lets you schedule 1 post at a time if you are posting on multiple social channels, because each channel will count as a post.
Have not needed to contact support, but their emails are informative and they periodically will have good deals.
Buffer is the perfect solution for someone starting out a business with social media. The tools are straight forward with a usable free version that helps you try out what you are doing before purchasing. They offer the ability to post on main social networks, and the ability to customize each post for each network.
