If you are a small business owner, you probably have a lot of responsibilities that fall in your lap. You could be in charge of your staff, as well as bookkeeping and marketing your business.

There are many great ways to market your small business on the internet these days, but each marketing platform takes time!

To help you manage your social media accounts, there are different social media management tools out there to take advantage of including Hootsuite, SocialOomph and Sprout Social.

What’s my favorite social media management tool? Buffer.

Buffer is one of the most popular so media management systems available with its ability to schedule social media messages with ease!

With Buffer you can schedule posts from multiple social media accounts including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.  With one click your social media posts can either be posted at certain times of the day in your Buffer queue that you have preselected or scheduled at specific dates and times.

Buffer also has extensions and extras that you can install onto your computer, phone or as a plugin to your website.

The extensions that feel significantly help my social media management are the extensions for web browsers including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

Adding these extensions gives you an easy button to click on your browser on your toolbar that allows you to immediately put a social media message into your Buffer queue from the website that you find the content on.

Another great extension of Buffer is DiggDigg. DiggDigg is a great plugin for WordPress that makes it easy for the readers on your website to share the articles on your website on Buffer, Twitter, Pinterest and more.
