Save time using Buffer


If you run a number of Facebook accounts I personally recommend using Buffer. You get Three Social Accounts for FREE or if you are like me I run ten Facebook Accounts through their business paid service.

This definitely saves previous time if you are posting on a regular basis.

However, in some cases you will want to post different content at different times. This is important as the algorithm will recognise multiple posts and may ask you to reset your password and check your accounts.

The best way to avoid this is to schedule your posts for different times of the day. Yes, it takes a little more time but doing this through Buffer you will still save a lot of work.

One of the big benefits of upgrading to the business account is you can use your own url shortner (I use rather than the buffer link shortner which sometimes gets blocked.

Final Tip of the day

When using Buffer please place your links before the final text.

e.g. after your link add some more text like ‘ thanks for taking the time to read my post - I hope you found it interesting’. Also ensure the Buffer setting is not ‘Link from image’


Thereis a chance the post on a Facebook page will drop the link from the bottom of the post . It will allow people to link from the image but not everyone will understand to do this.

Hope you found this helpful

NB: Remember the rules seem to change each month so watch what is happening. It is still worth while using tools like Buffer to save time and make life a lot easier for you.

Happy Posting.
