Buffer has long been on top of many social media agencies and managers' lists with the likes of tools such as Hootsuite as the “it” tool to boost social media presence.
But, is it really a suitable choice for your social media agency? The short answer is NO.
Buffer features are all put behind a paid wall that even the highest plan cannot get you access to, and their many subscriptions are bound to make you want to pull your hair.
With platforms like Buffer and Hootsuite continuing to up their prices, it’s time for social media agencies to stop settling for limited features while paying a premium price. Because believe it or not, there are better offers out there.
Let’s find out how you don’t have to pay big money for average services.
Why a Buffer's investment is not worth your while
- Buffer's costs can pile up, especially for social media agencies requiring multiple subscriptions for each one of their features.
- Buffer falls short as a complete social media tool since it lacks many other important features that you can find elsewhere for a fraction of the price, especially automation.
- It's a well-known fact that Buffer tends to glitch when trying to connect to Instagram.
- It's better suited for promoting one brand, and agencies may face difficulties juggling multiple brands simultaneously.
- Only offers limited plans and users have to pay $60/yr on top of the $1200/yr price tag per every extra channel.
- Buffer has arbitrary character limits for Facebook, and Twitter which can be a big problem.
- It offers limited insights and social listening features that give you feedback on your brand's performance.
Here’s how Nuelink tops Buffer all across the board.
