The folks at Buffer – the simple Twitter scheduling tool that gets you 200 percent more clicks on your links – have just released a Buffer Button for websites. Now, whenever you want to share an article on Twitter, you can hit “Buffer” and it will be scheduled to go live at the best time of day.
Bloggers, this is a tool for you. By adding the Buffer Button to your blog, you’ll encourage sharing and engagement. Plus, the 200 percent clickthrough increase means that those who Buffer your articles will often have a big impact on their network, while sharing your content.
Buffer already has over 300 blogs using their Button, including some of the leaders in the social media space. KISSmetrics, Jay Baer’s Convince and Convert, TweetSmarter and Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income are just a few of the blogs that are on board with the Buffer Button.
And if you’re not convinced that the Buffer Button is worth looking into yet, here’s the kicker: the Buffer Button consistently outperforms the Google+1 button on website with both.
Buffered tweets, whether through the new Buffer Button, a browser plugin, smartphone app, or through Bufferapp.com, will be scheduled to go live at various points throughout the day. Buffer takes care of the scheduling when you’ll see the most impact from your tweet, helping you become a more effective tweeter.
In fact, tweets sent through Buffer see double the number of retweets and an increased clickthrough rates of 200 percent.
