Managing Your Social Media Accounts With Buffer App

by John Oszajca on January 17, 2012

As musicians, most of us are pretty active when it comes to social media. While I think there are a lot of misunderstandings about social media and it’s proper place in the grand scheme of a sales funnel, I do think that it is a great tool for reinforcing your relationship with your fans.

With that said, it’s sometimes hard to find time to stay on top of all of those different accounts. Worse still is the fact that many of us find ourselves wondering just what the heck we should be tweeting about in the first place.

Well, I’ve found a new tool that promises to help with that. It’s called Buffer, (or Buffer App), and I’ve put together a video to show you what it is, how it works, and most importantly how it can help YOU save time and ultimately connect with your fans in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Check it out and see what you think…

Love always what you do. Going to download buffer! I am a bit braindead and watched the beginning twice, so I am sorry if I missed this, but will it send the same tweet out 4 times and the same FB post twice? Thanks John!

Thanks Kat,

No, it only sends one tweet and one Facebook post out for each item you add. You can also de-select one of your profiles if for any reason you only wanted to send something out via Facebook, for example. The 4 to Twitter and 2 to Facebook post ration is just the default for how many items you would have post each day. You can change that as well and make it more, or less.

The idea is that you cruise the net like you normally do with the buffer app browser add on installed. When you find something you like you press the buffer button and the item is added to your queue to go out at the next scheduled interview. You can also add custom tweets and posts of course. You can even email in your buffer messages. It’s really simple. You’ll get it after 2 minutes of laying with it. Enjoy :-)

Hi John, I recently heard about Buffer as well – but they didn’t go into as much detail as you did. I also thought the ten post ‘buffer’ was a bit of a limitation – but after seeing that you’re getting by fine with the free version I’m rethinking my opinion.

I don’t do a heck of a lot of Tweets and Facebook updates at the moment but now I’m ready when I do.

Yeah. when I thought it was 10 per month I thought the free account was too limited. But it’s actually 10 in the system at any given time. Which is enough for me. I might upgrade at some point anyway though, just so I can add more than 2 profiles. But for now, I’m just using the free account.

Wow, thank you so much for sharing! This is awesome. I tried using Tweetdeck, Twhirl, and tons of others, but Buffer is exactly what I was looking for; no more, and no less. Kickass!

My pleasure Kim, glad I was able to help. I use a number of the other solutions that are out there as well and I feel that buffer is much simpler to use ad the content sharing tools make it really valuable.
