A cheap, easy tool for scheduling your social media posts

I’m now managing a couple of client social media accounts, and just wanted to let you know about one of my favorite tools for scheduling posts.

The nice thing about Buffer is that it gives you tremendous flexibility. If you have messages that are appropriate for all your platforms, you only have to post them once and it’s done. Yet it allows you to post to individual social media accounts, too. And it’s easy to reschedule posts if need be.

You can schedule up to ten posts at a time with the free version, but I recommend upgrading. For 10 bucks a month you can schedule unlimited posts. This lets you work much more efficiently because you can consolidate your social media time by scheduling ahead weeks or even months.

Is it flawless? No. But the company does have an awesome customer support team. I give them a solid A-. If you have been struggling to keep up with your social media, give it a try. (Or call me. Or both!) 🙂
