[Publish] How to choose the right Buffer Publish plan

IN THIS ARTICLE

Summary

Buffer Publish has a number of plans available. The Free and Pro Plans are ideal for individual users looking to schedule content for their personal social accounts. The Business Plans are ideal for teams and agencies looking to schedule content for their business or client social accounts, with the ability to invite team members to collaborate, and have access to advanced analytics.

The deciding factors tend to be:

  • The number of social accounts you're looking to schedule content to
  • The number of team members who will need access to Buffer Publish
  • The number of posts you're looking to schedule in advance
  • Whether or not you require in-depth analytics

Notes:

  • All prices are USD. Unfortunately we're not able to bill for Buffer Plans in any other currencies right now. We apologise for the lack of flexibility there.
  • Pinterest is not currently supported on the Free Plan. If you are looking to schedule content to one or more Pinterest accounts, we would recommend the Pro Plan.
  • All plans can be paid on either a monthly or yearly basis. We offer a 20% annual discount for the Pro Plan, and a 15% annual discount for the Business Plans.

What are the benefits of the Pro Plan, compared to the Free Plan?

On the Free Plan, you're able to connect 3 social accounts (excluding Pinterest) and schedule up to 10 posts in advance per social account. For example, if you're sharing 2 posts per day, you would be able to schedule 5 days in advance.

If you're looking for a bit more flexibility, the Pro Plan might be perfect. On this plan you're able to connect up to 8 social accounts, including Pinterest, and schedule up to 100 posts in advance. Here's a run down of the benefits of the Pro Plan, compared to the Free Plan:

What are the benefits of the Business Plans, compared to the Pro Plan?

On the Pro Plan, you're able to manage up to 8 social accounts and schedule up to 100 posts in advance per social account. For example, if you're sharing 5 posts per day, you would be able to schedule 20 days in advance.
