We often get this question from our users... "Why should I upgrade to a paid PLANOLY account when I could just use the free version?". It's true that the free version could be enough for all of your organizing and scheduling needs, but in some cases, an upgraded version could help your planning strategies immensely. In this blog post, we'll be explaining everything you need to know about the difference between a free PLANOLY account and a paid one. Read on for our complete breakdown!
Our FREE plan has a limit of 30 uploads (not scheduled posts) per month that resets the 1st of each month. However, there are some details about the uploads that you should know about, so you don't go over your limit. You can choose from either an Instagram or Pinterest account. If you need to swap content a lot before you post, then the free plan might not be for you because of its limitations.
Uploads count as:
The SOLO plan is just $7 per month if billed annually or $9 month to month. You can link one social profile, and you can allow one user access with the SOLO plan. The best part of the SOLO plan compared to the FREE plan is that you have unlimited uploads, which can be a gamechanger for a lot of people. Another perk is that you can upload an unlimited number of images, videos, GIFs, or Pinterest content (depending on which social profile is linked). As far as analytics, you can track your likes, comments, and followers for the previous year. If you choose to link your Pinterest account, you can track your social profile metrics for any specific time frame. You're also able to respond to comments using our Comment Management Tool for the fifteen latest posts. *Planoly Tip: Auto post videos on any of our paid plans! Learn more about how to auto post videos here. An additional perk of the Solo plan is that you can 'Auto Post' your Instagram content from PLANOLY to Facebook with a paid account. Learn more about that feature here.This plan offers an Auto Post 1st comment feature, which allows you to include hashtags as a first comment when auto posting to Instagram. You can also Quick Schedule, where you save frequently used posting times to quickly reuse in the future. In addition to Quick Schedule, we offer 'Best Time to Post', which gives suggested times when your audience is online to maximize reach.
The DUO plan is our most popular option.
The CUSTOM plan is our newest option.
As you can see, we have a plan for everyone! We hope this helps you decide which PLANOLY account works best for you. Besides the plans listed, we also offer custom plans to fit your needs. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need us to create a custom plan for you!
