Social media marketing is a good tool when well used. The problem? It can get time consuming and none of us has more than 24 hours a day. Buffer offers help by giving you a tool that can schedule your social posts and keep you content out on the platforms that you choose. It allows you a “one stop shop” for your organic social media needs. This provides efficiency in not having to log into each platform when you want post, allows you to schedule posts when you’re busy or on vacation. And it allows you to monitor activity and handle interactions when you’re not on the native app.
Most of us have used the 3 horsemen of business tools: Microsoft Word, Main (Outlook), Excel, PowerPoint. Now maybe you don’t love them, but these are the tools for business and allow you to communicate in the fashions people expect. Having an Office 365 package/account allows you to have all of these tools on any device you want accessible anywhere in the world where you have Internet access. Much improved and play nicer with the apps you also might use like Slack, Zoom, Dropbox and more. Get more information on how it can work for you here.
