I don’t know about you but managing all my social media accounts can be a pain. If you are like me you have personal accounts, ministry accounts, work accounts, and fun accounts that all need to be kept up to date so your followers can know what’s going on. I’ve tried many ways to keep them all in check, and a few months ago I discovered the easiest and most powerful yet — Buffer.
The first step in getting your Buffer going, is connecting your accounts. In the free version you can connect 1 Twitter, 1 Facebook, and 1 Google + account which is great for personal use. If you want to connect more, you can upgrade to their Awesome plan that allows up to 12 accounts, 2 users and unlimited posts for as little as $8.50 a month. This would be great if you wanted to manage your own accounts, plus those of your ministry.
Once you get your accounts connected, you can setup your schedule for posting. On the free plan they allow up to 4 posting times a day that you can set to be what works best for you. Once your schedule is set you can start loading your posts and can choose to post immediately or put it in your “buffer” to go out at the next scheduled time. They also have a ton of pluggins and app hooks that make it easy to share articles and posts that you might be reading on your laptop, phone or tablet.
If you have been looking for a better way to manage your social media, give Buffer a try.
