    Absolutely. Twitter is just a channel, ut’s the message that matters. By placing it in front of the right people, at the right time, well, you take things to new levels.

    Interesting thoughts for the pizza company, too. I can imagine different days would require different times, too. Saturday night for example might be a little later as people settle in for a night in front of the TV

    Whereas on a Tuesday it might need to be earlier as you have dinner with the family

    Hi Roy, if you are new to Social Media I would recommend Buffer. It basically allows you to schedule your Tweets (and Facebook Posts, too).

    so, lets say you wake up at 8am, read 5 great Blog Posts and want to share them all on Twitter. Buffer allows you to schedule them so you send one Tweet every 40 minutes (or whatever time you decide), thus spreading things out.

    Much better than sending 5 Tweets in the space of 30 seconds :)

    take a look for yourself. It’s a real time saver and a great marketing tool for new or old Twitter users alike

    Hope this helps and all the best

    I love Buffer. One of my big problems is that I keep very different hours than most of my followers. I use SocialBro to track when I am most likely to reach people, and then use that info to give me a good ‘sharing window’ And you can even export the lovely SocialBro info into Buffer!

    I also like that you can email in you shares to Buffer. I often spend time in the evening catching up on interesting reading via Zite (sweet teachable agrigator app or the iPad) and buffer recognizes the email format it sends. So I can easily share great stuff I find.

      Absolutely, the global world makes certain things hard. I tried Social Bro a while back, but think I may give it another go. didn’t know it could link in with Buffer. Plus it has a dashboard version now, which is good. Will this pip Tweetdeck??

      Can you schedule tweets in Social Bro? For a specific time?

    I am using Buffer and I am thinking to upgrade so I am able to buffer more than 10 messages.

    • http://www.turndogmillionaire.com/ Turndog Millionaire

      I think I will dig into the pockets one day, too. I don’t come across the limit too often, but it’s happened a few times in the last few weeks.

      Plus they’re a savvy brand, which I’m always happy to put some dollars to one side for :)

    i use Hootsuite. Is it not the same or is Buffer better?

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Buffer is more for just ensuring Tweets go out at the best times. Hootsuite is more a deck for monitoring and managing your Twitter streams from friends and interests.

    • http://www.turndogmillionaire.com/ Turndog Millionaire

      As Jeff says. I use Tweet deck personally. Sometimes to schedule a particular post for a particular time slot, and other times to monitor certain discussions. It’s always on in the background though

        I have tested both Hootsuite’s auto-schedule (released 8/12) and Buffer. I can’t say definitively whether one service is better at scheduling than the other, but I can say that through the iOS app, Reeder integration, web snippet and add to buffer email address, Buffer is “in more places that you want to be.” I’m curious if anyone has other thoughts about Hootsuite’s auto-schedule.

    I enjoy Buffer too, but find that it makes it too easy to post the same content to all my social profiles, which I know isn’t the best approach. So I mostly use it for Twitter, and then do FB and Linked in real time. Also, the iPad app is not great and doesn’t allow for photos, the most recent feature added.

    Hi Matthew – nice review. Summarises the beauty of Buffer. It is simple, and the basic analytics a re great way to monitor who is engaging with your tweets. I just have the free version, and just spend 10 minutes each morning putting the tweets that I want to post in my buffer. I also interact dynamically aswell, so these Biuffer’s tweets are just extra tweets, pointing to my blog articles I am promoting at that time.

    In addition – you can promote Buffer as an affiliate, and anyone else who signs up for Buffer, gains you an extra tweet in your buffer!

    Jeff,
    Buffer is really an innovative app, especially for those who like to schedule their tweets strategically. I am a big believer of real-time engagement/posts. I sometimes want to automate my Twitter, especially sometimes I want to schedule my tweets but personally I don’t like it. Maybe it can increase my market exposure, follower base. But, can you take the time to write something really potential and innovative about “Virtual Assistant” step by step guide?

    Ha! I actually started using Buffer a few weeks ago. Comes in REALLY handy because I like to post things at very specific hours but I lose track of time if left to my own devices. Excellent article!
