I recently wrote an article about how much I loved the social media scheduling tool, Buffer.
Someone read my article and left a comment describing a very similar tool called Timely.is.
After doing a little bit of research, I determined that this tool was also awesome.
In case you are unfamiliar, the idea of tools such as Buffer and Timely.is is to make tweeting easier.
On the surface, these two tools seemed to serve the same purpose. However, once you begin using the tools you will realize that there are differences that really matter. Consider some of the ways these tools differ before deciding which is right for you:
Whether you’re starting a business or looking to simply improve your company’s social media efforts, there is no right answer. It is up to you to decide if you want to put more value on price, scheduling options, or a mobile application.
I actually use both Buffer and Timely.is to schedule my tweets because I have so many. I work with my company accounts, personal account, try to promote my co-workers content, and try and tweet out things that I find valuable. I generally use Buffer for my personal account and personal tweets, and Timely.is to promote content that I or my co-workers have written.
Do you use Timely.is or Buffer? Which do you prefer?
