In the busy world of running your Network Marketing business on Social Media (SM), you may find yourself using all of your time posting shit instead of actually working your business. How does that even make sense? You need to post on Social Media to work your business..
I'm going to try and make this short, but Buffer speaks our language, so the list of what makes Buffer awesome might get a little carried away...
1. Ease of Use
Instead of spending every day taking half of my allotted time during the day to work my business by posting on SM, I take one day - usually Sunday - to plan out my SM strategy, write posts, and schedule them in Buffer. Log in using your Facebook account to easily connect your personal page, groups and business pages.
Pick the day. Pick the time. Add a photo. Write your copy. Schedule Post.
Boom. You've been Buffered.
2. It ain't free, but it's cheap!
$10 US a month for the "Awesome Plan" which lets your schedule for up to 10 social accounts (each Facebook Page or Group counts as an "account"). It's perfect for the amount of work I want to put in to scheduling my posts. Any more than that and it would be operation overload. I hooked my payments up to my Y Card - the pre paid debit card that Younique pays me through - so my business is paying for it's own business expenses. No point in putting money into your business that isn't making money. Let me rephrase that into a questions.. why are you putting money into a business that you aren't working at to make money? Food for thought. Buffer is a tool to work your business, it's not going to work your business for you.
3. Amazing SM Information Resource
Buffer provides an excellent blog full of SM tips, how, what, where, why's and when's when it comes to everything about social media. So not only are the a powerful tool, but they show you how to effectively use it for every SM platform. They also have recently started a podcast chock full of useful info. We suggest you check it out and add it to your playlist.
4. Back-End Features
We can always appreciate a good behind, and Buffer's back-end is no exception. Call me cheeky, but everything is well rounded. All butt jokes aside, Buffer collects analytics on each post and ultimately shows you what posts work for your audience and which ones don't. You can even sort them by "most popular" and "least popular" and choose which of the most popular you want to re-buffer to get even more interaction. It's always a good idea to recycle good content to reach more users. You can also sort the posts by content: image, video, link, text and retweets.
Buffer also has a content inbox. Connecting your favorite blogs and publications to the content inbox and schedule to share it directly from Buffer.
5. There's an App for that
I love to multitask even though it's not the most productive way to do things. Sundays are kind of my "binge every Netflix episode I need to watch all day" kind of days. So I sit on the couch, binge watch my Netflix shows while I use the Buffer App on my Android to schedule posts for the week. They say, "Don't mix business with pleasure." But in this case I will have to disagree.
I recommend Riverdale, The Last Kingdom & The 100.
If you're on your PC, there's also a browser extension you can install to easily share all kinds of content straight from the source through Buffer.
We don't get paid for this. We just really love Buffer. We suggest you give it a try for free. You can connect one social media account (try it with your personal Facebook) to see how you like it. We think it's worth every penny, especially if you're going to be running a lot of Facebook parties for your Network Marketing business. You can concentrate on replying and helping your customers and party goers instead of worrying about what to post in the party that day. It's just better for business and will save you time in the long run, and it pays for itself if you are using it to maximize your business productivity.
We love you, Buffer and your back-end.
