Bulk Scheduling RecurPost knows how crucial Bulk Scheduling is for businesses to undertake digital marketing activities. Buffer, on the other hand, doesn't offer this feature.

RSS Feeds RecurPost is yet again a better alternative as it supports RSS Feeds which you can use to curate some of your favorite content, while Buffer fails to provide the same feature.

Content Categorization RecurPost knows that you're pretty OCD about your content and you like things organized and clean, and that's exactly what our Content Libraries allow you to do.

Copy Updates Buffer does not allow you to copy your content multiple times from within the interface which leaves you less room to repurpose awesome content that you created earlier.

Twitter Variations RecurPost helps you generate variations for your Tweets which can come in really handy since multiple posting of the same Tweet is forbidden by Twitter. Buffer does not offer the same feature.

Import Updates from other tools If you're switching from some other tool to RecurPost, you don't have to worry about losing all your content. RecurPost allows you to seemlessly import all your previously-posted updates directly into your RecurPost Content Library.

Google Alerts RecurPost also supports Google Alerts. You can use Google's power to find and curate interesting content and subscribe to trending topics for more social engagement. Buffer does not offer this service.

AI-based share time optimization RecurPost's smart AI knows what time you are most likely to receive the highest engagement for your content on social media. Buffer offers no such scheduling.

Pause and Resume Social Accounts With RecurPost, you can even pause your social accounts at any time in case you don't want any content to go out live temporarily.

Chrome plugin A handy browser extension helps add content from the web directly to your RecurPost library. Buffer offers the same feature as well.

Mobile app Carry your schedules in your pocket with RecurPost's user-friendly and easy-to-use mobile app. Buffer offers the same service too.

Advanced Analytics Both RecurPost and Buffer allow you to analyse your performance and track engagement. However, Buffer requires you to buy their product 'Analyze' for $35 to execute this feature. RecurPost offers this feature even in our FREE plan.

Team Members Working with your team is crucial especially for small businesses, something which both RecurPost and Buffer allow you to do.

White Label Reports Both RecurPost and Buffer allow you to download pdf reports with your brand logo attached to appear more professional which can land you more gigs.

Hashtag Recommendation Both RecurPost and Buffer recommend you potential hashtags that you might like to use when creating or posting content for additional social engagement.

URL Shortener Both RecurPost and Buffer allow you to shorten the URL links when creating new content. However, RecurPost uses Bitly and Google to shorten links which are generally more popular among marketers than Buffer's integrated URL shortener.

CSV Support Both RecurPost and Buffer allow you to upload CSV files so to upload and schedule content in bulk.

Repeated Posting RecurPost allows you to repeatedly post your social updates in regular intervals which gives them new life, helps you reach more people, gains you more leads, and increases your overall sales.
