How I Keep My Buffer Account 100% Filled With Great Content

Chris Makara, March 20, 2019

Like you, I’m always looking for ways to save time posting quality content to my social media channels.

So when I discovered Buffer, I thought all my problems were solved.

Just fill up the queues with all the content I wanted to run for the next week, set the schedule and watch it go – leaving me more time for social engagement.

But there was one thing I just couldn’t get away from.

And the message came at the end of every week, loud and clear:


“The Buffer for your Twitter profile, @ChrisMakara, is empty. Here’s how you’re doing!”


Those weekly emails haunted my sleep.

I knew they meant me sitting for a good part of my Saturday, searching out the right content, composing posts and scheduling out my queues to run for the week ahead.

It was belabored, tedious and frustrating.

Not to mention I had a million better things to do.

So I set out to build a tool that would allow me to easily have as much content as I needed without having to drudge away several hours of my weekend each week.

And Bulky was created.

The best part?

You can be up and running in less than 5 minutes.

In fact, Bulkly can import your previous 100 published status updates for you.

Content Upload

Create hundreds of social media updates in Microsoft Excel & upload the file to Bulkly.

Content Curation

Browse the latest content from your favorite
RSS feeds and select the content you want to share.

RSS Automation

Automatically create social media updates from
your favorite website’s RSS feed.

Use a CSV File to Create Hundreds of Updates

Have you ever wanted to simply upload a single file and have all of your social media updates created and sent to Buffer for you?

Yeah, me too.

That’s one of the reasons I created Bulkly. To do just that.

Fill an Excel file with your updates. Save it as a CSV file. (Or, just download and complete my ready-made CSV template.) Then, use Bulkly’s Content Upload to bulk add your updates to Buffer.

Done. Easy as one, two, three.

Curate Content From Your Favorite Websites

You don’t share just your own content on social media, do you?

Nope. You’re curating content.

But wouldn’t it be nice if you could see all the latest content from your favorite sites in one place?

Of course it would!

That’s why Bulkly allows you to add dozens of RSS feeds and instantly see the latest content from each of them. All on one screen. Boom.

Leverage RSS Feeds To Create Social Posts

Unlike every other RSS automation tool, Bulky doesn’t just send the most recent item from a feed.

Instead, it utilizes the whole feed.

New posts, old posts and everything in between.

Other tools only post when new content is available. Bulkly posts continuously from the feed whether or not it contains new content. That’s some seriously smart automation.

How Does It Work?

Connect to Buffer

A one-time connection between Bulkly &
Buffer will allow Bulkly to send updates to your
Buffer queue. Never have an empty queue again!

Add Content

Create your posts & build a schedule
for Bulkly to send to Buffer.

Watch More Cat Videos

You’ll free up enough time to watch all the cat videos you ever wanted. Or spend hours engaging on social media. Either way, we won’t judge.

So how exactly does Bulkly
save you time each month?

You can recycle your social media posts

Because Bulkly lets you recycle every update you have saved, you can forget about adding the same content to your Buffer queue again and again.

Time saved: 90 minutes per month

You’ll see all the latest content from your favorite sites, all on one screen

Curating content doesn’t mean jumping across dozens of your favorite sites to copy & paste headlines and links into social updates. Instead, view all the latest content from your favorite sites in one place and we’ll send them to Buffer.

Time saved: 90 minutes per month

You’ll have social updates created automatically

With RSS Automation, you don’t have to manually add content from your favorite websites to share. Simply add the RSS feeds to Bulkly and we’ll create updates for you. Plus, all updates will be dripped into your Buffer queue automatically.

Time saved: 60 minutes per month

Never manually schedule the same social media updates again

Join other smart social media marketers and use Bulkly alongside
your existing Buffer account to automatically create engaging social media updates.

Recycle Updates

Don’t let an update go to waste. Use
it again and again, automatically.

Shuffle Posts

Automatically mix up the order that
your posts get sent to Buffer.

Hashtag Assignment

Assign unique hashtags to each
social channel. Enter multiple
tags to randomize it.

Drip Scheduling

Bulkly will “drip” updates to
your Buffer account hourly,
daily or monthly.

Can I try Bulkly before I pay for it?

Of course! All Bulkly accounts come with a free 7-day trial. If for some odd reason Bulkly isn’t for you, simply cancel before the trial is complete.

What forms of payment are accepted?

Currently we accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

Is Bulkly a secure website?

Yup! Bulkly uses SSL encryption across the whole site and is Level 1 PCI compliant.

Do I need a Buffer account to use Bulkly?

Yes. Bulkly does not publish social media updates. Instead, Bulkly automatically drips status updates to your Buffer account where Buffer will post it on your behalf.

Can I review content before it is published on my social media accounts?

Absolutely. All content can be reviewed in your Buffer queue before Buffer posts it at your next scheduled time.

Why would someone want to automate social media?

It might sound counterintuitive, but by automating the re-use of status updates not only can you expose new followers to your updates, but you save time manually doing the same tasks over and over. Ultimately you can free up more time to spend engaging with your audience.

I have a new feature to suggest, how can I do that?

We’ve got a pretty strong list of new features to consider and are always interested to know what would help you out. If you have an idea to make Bulkly better, please contact us.
