In this post we will explain how to use Buffer with Commun.it to schedule your posts. This is a very easy way to boost your engagement, and makes growing your community hassle-free. We all know that overwhelming our followers with a constant stream of generic updates is bad practice when building meaningful relationships. We want to share our thoughts and interact, but we’re not always online. And let’s face it social media never sleeps.
So what you do? For us the solution is obvious – Buffer. It’s a must-have tool in your community management toolkit, and when combined with Commun.it will transform the way you build relationships online.
Buffer is a powerful service that allows you to schedule all your posts across a variety of social networks. Once you’ve logged into your Commun.it account, you will see an ‘Add to Buffer’ button every time you click to tweet, retweet or reply to your community. All you do is click. Your tweets will then be added to the queue, and will be sent according to your Buffer schedule.

In order to use Buffer with Commu.it, you’ll need to upgrade to a premium account. Once you’ve done that you’ll be able to add all your tweets from Commun.it to Buffer. Schedule your queue to your specifications on Buffer so each time you click ‘Add to Buffer’ on Commun.it, it streamlines it into your created schedule on Buffer. As you can see above, I’ve setup a schedule for four times a day in addition to whatever else I tweet manually. See the magic of scheduling your posts!
Set Up Your Buffer
Clicking on reply/retweet/mention anywhere in Commun.it opens an engagement dialogue that has an ‘Add to Buffer’ button. If you have already a Buffer account, then clicking ‘Add to Buffer’ for the first time will allow you to connect your account to Commun.it. If you don’t yet have a Buffer account, click ‘Add to Buffer’ to create it with just 2 clicks.
So what can you buffer from Commun.it? Well here are some ideas:
- Buffer your thanks to your top influencers / supporters / engaged members / new followers
- Buffer the retweets of your members’ statuses
- Compose a new tweet and buffer it.
The best way to start using Commun.it with Buffer is to jump right in! Do you have more creative ideas about how to combine these two tools? Would love to hear you in the comments 🙂
