Set and Forget Social
Does Tweeting, Facebooking, LinkedIn-ing (is that a word?) and Instagramming seem to take up a lot of your time? I bet it does. Each day going onto twitter etc. is a time thief.
Before you know it you are watching a Thomas the Tank engine/Beyonce mash up for the first time, and somehow it is 11am. These platforms are designed to be addictive, the longer you are on them, the more advertising revenue they get. So beat the social giants at their own game by using Buffer.
Buffer is a brilliant little package which is cloud, website and app based. Buffer allows you to schedule social media output ahead of time so that you can batch the tasks and then get on with your day.
Buffer works by allowing you to decide how many posts to do a day, what time to send them and then will enable you to fill up these slots ahead of time. Buffer also gives you real-time analytics on how the posts are doing and save previous posts so they can be shared again in the future if they did well.
Buffer’s usefulness does not end there. You can also install a Buffer plugin or the app on Apple products and automatically put useful articles into your scheduled queue. Buffer also has a host of other features that are worth exploring at http://buffer.com

Do you ever just seem to be posting the same updates on to social media every week? Does it feel like you are just wasting time? Well, the chances are you are. Want to save this time for things more important like online shopping or watching videos of cats. I bet you do.
