It’s official: I still love Buffer.
I first introduced you to the scheduling app in a New Tool Tuesday feature, but those were just some of the basics. Take a look at the power of scheduled tweets — amazing impressions and analytics!
These are some of the tweets that I scheduled through Buffer last week:
The left icon shows number of retweets, the center icon is number of clicks, and the far right shows number of impressions.
Take, for example, the tweet I made on Tuesday at 8:09pm. I shared the link to a post I’d done months ago, about auditing your blog. The information was still relevant, and someone that I was talking to reminded me that it’s a pretty good resource.
I got 85 clicks through to that post — 85 page views for something that took me no added effort.
And since I typically try and tweet other people’s posts more than my own, the power of sharing gets amplified.
Another example — see the post that I shared on Wednesday morning, from Roni? She got 50 clicks from my share, which is great, because it was a post that deserved a lot of attention (here it is, in case you missed it: “Hi, I’m Dr. Darlene and I Lost 40lbs on the HCG Diet System.“)
Here’s this week’s dashboard:
Lots of people got love from me, because it’s so easy to share from my Google Reader and/or the bookmarklet in Chrome. I just one-click send the post to Buffer and keep my queue loaded up.
I’m not alone in my Buffer love:
- Increase Clicks on Your Tweets by 200% (guest post by Buffer’s @LeoWid via For Bloggers By Bloggers)
- With the Buffer App You Can Now Be Awesome on Facebook and Twitter (via New Mediator)
- Buffer App Increases Engagement on Twitter (via Edelman Digital)
- Buffer App Makes Scheduling Tweets Easy (via Michele Neylon)
- Buffer App Saves Time With a Single Click (via ConverStations)
- Buffer App Will Make Twitter More Fun (via Emiley Tay)
Again — nothing that I put in Buffer is automated except for the actual time that it goes out. I still go in and tweak the message, add the Twitter handle and more. But it just allows me to load up a queue with stuff that I think is interesting (and give some love to older posts that I think have relevance today).
