    Pros

    The procedure to get enrolled is easy. They also provide some exceptional blogging tips. It lets you schedule your post releases I several social media depending on the order you actually want them to.

    Cons

    The whole deal of understanding the working of this application may take a while. There have been various problems with the cancelation of the subscriptions. The support team does not provide sufficient help with issues regarding the cancelation of subscriptions. The billing options set up are quite ridiculous and this could drive to other similar applications which work with a better performance. Many a time, the refunds due to the removal of subscriptions have taken months. When enquired, the support team often advised using the application in a better way.

    Pros

    The application is easy to set up and work on. It helps you plan and schedule your social media post to maximize its reach and engagements. It helps in recycling and rescheduling old posts and provides tutorials about the using of their blog. It is an affordable option.

    Cons

    The application lacks in some basic features. It gets automatically updated and upgraded to another version which is priced high. It is difficult to cancel your account. Poor customer service and support team. Lacks in integrations. It is not linked to Instagram and Pinterest. The refunds take a lot of time to be processed.

    Pros

    I liked the calendar part that we can set for every post on different social media platforms. It has the decent feature of content curation.

    Cons

    I feel that the analytics part is bit lacking and can be improved in terms of engagement for a particular post or campaign.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    This is a great tool:

    Analytics Tools
    Scheduling Tools

    This user interface is easy to start with!

    Cons

    Almost as good as buffer in value but honestly a little more intuitive and the audience section is totally worth.

    I love how easy it is to schedule content, and I especially love the "recycle" feature that lets me repurpose it

    Cons

    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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    all it is a total nothing burger wasting your money for wasting more of your time. simply terrible!

    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!

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Easily schedule posts to different pages and accounts
    Good concept of having someone else find content for you.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Limited on bang for the buck. Pricing needs urgent review. Shame you cannot pay per user account or SM account connected.

    I made some lackluster social media engagement a little easier, but it's not robust or reliable enough to continue with.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Customer service basically told me after erroneous charge. Scheduler fails a lot of the time also - had posts and accounts just disappear.

    Great product for posting on Facebook and Twitter. It shaved a lot of time off of managing social media profiles.

    Pros

    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.

    I will say the email Customer Service was done in a timely manner, but not extending the refund that I had requested.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    -Create a full schedule once and never enter a time for your posts anymore !!! (instead of planning each post)

    -Integration with snip.ly
    -Content Suggestions
    -Bulk uploads
    -Price
    -Customer Support (had a problem once which was solved within ten minutes after submitting a ticket)

    Cons

    -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.
