Welcome to the ConnEcht Blog where we talk about everything small business related. Today we are talking about the social media software Buffer, and why I think anybody looking for a social media posting tool should absolutely consider trying it out. There is no one solution for everybody but we pride the business on being a resource to those trying to figure it all out. This blog is in now way a sponsorship, paid ad, nor do we have any current affiliation with Buffer but we would be doing you an injustice not to share what is out there!
To start off:
Buffer has a FREE version of the membership. it's for people just started and wanted to test out how this could impact your workflow. It includes up to 3 channels, social tools, landing page builder and even includes access to their AI assistant to make write your captions, descriptions, or other content a breeze!
If you want more than the basic version they give you a 14 day trial to try out any of the other memberships too! I would say that financially speaking Buffer is here for everybody. Whether you're trying to start your small business or mega agency, they have packages and pricing for you.
They can put you everywhere!
Facebook, Google My Business, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and more. They can put your content anywhere you need. As far as variety and spread, Buffer definitely understands that organic reach is important. You want to really be able to adjust and post your content where ever you would like.
DIRECT TIKTOK POSTING!
I had been waiting for this feature for a while to integrate into my business because we are heavily Tiktok focused for clients and allowing the scheduling and ease of Tiktok has been awesome!
My issues with it:
No YouTube Integration - with the arrival of YouTube shorts, we need content creators and small businesses to be able to easily access and upload content to their YouTube Channels without having to open another window.
I believe they are working on this as we write.
