One of the biggest problems I have always had on Twitter was being consistent. Either I would go and post lots of tweets at once, overwhelming my followers with too many tweets. Or I wouldn’t tweet enough for a few days, not keeping my followers posted about the great stuff I am reading.
Not anymore I decided and jumped on the Buffer wagon. So maybe that has happened to you too?
If you feel you are in the same boat here, let me walk you through Buffer, a new Twitter App, that will help you to keep up with Twitter. Yet, without spending hours and hours on it (even though we would all love to do that.)
Buffer in 10 seconds (estimated reading time)
All you do with Buffer is you throw a few tweets in your Buffer and they will in return be scheduled for you during the day. That’s it.
What makes Buffer “Killer”?
Throwing a few tweets in your Buffer is super simple. After creating your account you can start putting tweets into your Buffer right there.
Or make it even simpler still and install the right browser extension for you (Firefox, Chrome, Safari). Now, if you are reading a page you like, click the Buffer icon and you will get the shortened link and the title of the page. Like with this post from Ileane:
Track the full impact of your Tweets
As of today you are also able to track your full impact of buffered tweets. You will be able to see Clicks on your links, Retweets, Avatars of who retweeted you and Reach. Simply click “analytics” on your Buffer dashboard. Here is how this looks like:
Clicks on your Links
How many followers did you reach?
How many Retweets did you get?
Who retweeted you?
When will I tweet?
The frequency of your daily tweets in Buffer is totally up to you. As is the timing. By default Buffer gives you tweeting times at twitter peak times, however you can adjust them to your needs. Maybe you rather want to reach people from different timezones? Try out different patterns and frequencies? Here are mine:
Is Buffer right for you?
In case you have similar habits like me, wanting to share the great content you read on the web, give Buffer a try. It will make it super simple to create a consistency on Twitter and you will send out tweets without overwhelming your followers.
