Post Planner is a cloud-based social engagement solution for small, midsize and large businesses.

Users can then organize their social feeds based on the engagement rating. It allows them to store content at a central location and re-post performing content via automated tools.
It is accessible on desktop computers, laptops and smartphones and is offered in a subscription pricing. It is available globally and supports 12 international languages. Support is provided via online case submission and emails. Other help options include user guides and media kits.

If you're trying to start up a new social network profile, it may be a good way to quickly get content flowing. However, original content is often best -- even if you have to recycle some of your own work to keep content flowing.
The concept is good: you select a few topics and it magically plans posts to help drive social media engagement. Unfortunately, Facebook and Twitter are pretty savvy, and seem to be able to tell when these "viral" posts show up on your account and drop the number of people receiving your information. Some people have success, but mostly it defeats the purpose of original content.
You should really expect to get what you pay for. Savvy followers will realize that they're getting recycled images that they've seen before . . . probably.

Get this tool if your ready to pay instead of using a free service.
This is a great tool:
This user interface is easy to start with!
Almost as good as buffer in value but honestly a little more intuitive and the audience section is totally worth.
Courtney from Courtney Elmer Coaching
I love how easy it is to schedule content, and I especially love the "recycle" feature that lets me repurpose it
Sometimes I find the library of content isn't as extensive as I'd like it to be for my niche, otherwise I enjoy using the software
Timm from Lichtung Media Ltd
none just losing money and time. 100% useless
that the sellers manage to sell this service you pay for losing massive time.
All the soft does you can do without it better and faster
They have a fraud system going you can not test their services before, but offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Once you paid they never give you back the money.
100% terrible I filled a criminal fraud case against the company.
all it is a total nothing burger wasting your money for wasting more of your time. simply terrible!
Jon from Loyalty Systems, LLC
It offers trending topics and posts for you to place on social media. You don't have to go surfing for it. It's readily available for you in one place. Time is money, how true!
I don't like that some of the trending material is not rated G. I think there should be a filter somehow within the program, to better please users from every perspective. In fairness, Post Planner is just reporting what's trending but not everyone wants to see all of it. It's not over the top material but not wanted by all either. For example, there could just be a rated G section within the program.
I did not see ANY benefits from this.
Easily schedule posts to different pages and accounts
Good concept of having someone else find content for you.
Finding content was NOT easy. I really had to search to find quality content.
Most important - Horrible service and overpriced for what you get. My subscription was up in March and they auto-charged me in Feb. with NO notice and won't refund me. There is no phone number to reach them.
If you can get past the terrible-looking and unintuitive UI, I could see how this would be helpful for a B2C business looking for a steady stream of content for their social accounts. For B2B, it's not useful at all.
Post Planner charged my card for renewal several months before my annual plan expired. Given my underwhelming experience with the tool, I asked for a refund and a cancelation of my plan (as I had no intention of renewing). Instead of promoting goodwill, they pointed me to the ToS that has language saying they can charge customers well in advance of plan expiration. Really, really shady business practice. Customer Service (which was clearly a personal assistant following a script--no decision-making power, and wouldn't forward me to a manager) refused to give me a refund and was generally not helpful.
Daniel from John Kufleitner Auto Group
The search for content is fantastic and it makes it super easy to schedule posts, pictures and now videos to be posted to your facebook and twitter accounts.
Would like to be able to get more content and some times when I save or add a search I still have to look hard to find it. Looking forward to using the beta version more.
Tammy from Top Trends Marketing
News is days late so you never want to schedule posts based on yesterday's news. Also, they conveniently did not send me an email letting me know that my subscription was about to be renewed giving me a chance to either renew or cancel. No, instead they took out and will not refund me even after I canceled. I am so disgusted in their customer service, and it took me three phone calls and two tickets to get an answer about my non-refund . I DO NOT RECOMMEND THEM
Great for automating client Social media posts months in advance.
Straightforward to link social media accounts including Facebook and Twitter. Setting up a posting schedule is super easy. Finding new content is a breeze with a powerful search engine and great suggested content categories.
Limited on bang for the buck. Pricing needs urgent review. Shame you cannot pay per user account or SM account connected.
Karen from Professional Services
I made some lackluster social media engagement a little easier, but it's not robust or reliable enough to continue with.
Relatively easy to use, but light on functionality. Allows for easy scheduling of some assorted external resources but the selection is a little iffy. Interface is simple, but perhaps too simple.
Customer service basically told me after erroneous charge. Scheduler fails a lot of the time also - had posts and accounts just disappear.
Shannon from Plus One Virtual Solutions
Great product for posting on Facebook and Twitter. It shaved a lot of time off of managing social media profiles.
Post Planner was one of the first schedulers I used for posting to Facebook. It was so simple to use. It was easy to find relevant posts based on categories and then schedule them based on Post Planners recommended times or your own Facebook insights. I used it for my personal/business pages and my client's business pages. Set up was quick and their tutorials and blog are excellent resources for growing your pages.
Sheila from Not A Soft Target, LLC
I will say the email Customer Service was done in a timely manner, but not extending the refund that I had requested.
The fact that there is no live Customer Support is not acceptable to me. There isn't even Chat, which is also annoying. I will say the email Customer Service was done in a timely manner, but they only wanted to offer me extended plans at no extra charge and not give me a refund.
Buyer Be Aware: when you sign up, you are signing up for auto-renew. I did not realize this and they charged me, which they would not refund, even though I told them I had no intention of using their app.

Content curation made easier for various industries. Consistently great articles and links that I choose to read on a regular basis.
I'm a big fan of Post Planner not only for curating content but also for finding informative content that I want to read/learn from related to my industry and my clients' industries.
There's no "Cancel Subscription" option. You have to email Post Planner directly to cancel or change your subscription which I find frustrating as this is the only tool I've come across where you can't do things like this yourself. Also when I've posted to Twitter, assuming the link would be shown, only a photo and the caption I wrote have shown up.
Used postplanner for a couple of years. It was ok for scheduling. No noticeable increase in traffic.
Charged a yearly subscription months after cancelled Will not refund. Sort out your customer service
easy to use (when it works) different pages you can post to instantly, but lately the software is not working so not many pros
My posts are not posting at the correct time, posts are double, to the wrong pages and support only tells me to uninstall ALL other extensions I have, in a short word useless!

-Create a full schedule once and never enter a time for your posts anymore !!! (instead of planning each post)
-Recycle + reschedule feature
-Integration with snip.ly
-Customer Support (had a problem once which was solved within ten minutes after submitting a ticket)
-Some of the feature of more complex (and significantly more expensive and often more cumbersome) solutions are missing. You can't monitor all your feeds, mentions, and social media accounts from a dashboard. But again, Postplanner is a really way faster than other solutions. You can always integrate another prouct on top just for the purpose of streaming feeds and monitor performance.
Using this app only for a month and it's fantastic! Great content for social media. I already see increase in engagement. Recommended to all my colleagues and friends.
- everything is clear and simple to use
- it works!!!
Post Planner creates effective social media content for multiple platforms. It is easy and intuitive to use. A great product.
No immediate feedback here. Others have commented on the benefit of including Instagram, and I would agree with that.
This simple app has helped our business grow. The search provides us with interesting, relevant new content each day so that we post more, and more widely, with more likes and retweets. The ease of the app has increased both the range and size of our share audience, bringing attention and new people to our company. If, like us, you have a media product that you need to keep in front of people, this clean, easy-to-use app will help you a lot.
Presently, the app is limited to Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Instagram access would be nice addition.
Really great app. Made my life much easier to find ideal content for my Facebook and Twitter profiles.

Simple, easy to use, extremely user-friendly social media tool for posting and finding content. It's clearly designed with the user in mind, making life for anyone managing social media 100x better.
Video has been a bit of a challenge. I'd love to see this improved down the road since it's a huge part of what I share on social.
