Buffer Alternatives: The Complete List (2020 Update)


Buffer is a great social media management tool. However, it can become pretty expensive on Buffer’s paid plans.

I decided to review 90 different social media scheduling tools, comparing the best free and paid Buffer alternatives.

This is a comprehensive list of all the social media scheduling tools that work with multiple social networks. Software that only works with one social network, such as TweetDeck, have not been included.

Click here to see this list in a sortable Google Sheet.

1. OneUp

Social networks supported by this social media scheduling tool: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google My Business, and Stocktwits.

Starting price: $12/month, 3 social profiles

Free-forever plan: No.

Features

Posting to multiple social media accounts – For people who are posting to more than one social network at a time, OneUp makes it easy to post to Instagram, Facebook Pages and Groups, LinkedIn profiles and pages, Twitter, Google My Business, Pinterest, and all at once.

Canva integration – OneUp directly integrates with Canva. Just click the “Design on Canva” button in the scheduler, and Canva will open directly inside of OneUp.

Click the “Publish” button in the Canva editor, and your image will be uploaded to OneUp directly. No need to download images from Canva, then upload to OneUp.

Repeating post – Choose to have your post publish once, or you can choose to set posts to automatically repeat.

Scheduling posts to Google My Business — Stand out in Google searches by scheduling posts to Google My Business and adding your Call-To-Action buttons. Different kinds of GMB posts are supported as well, such as What’s New and Event posts.

Auto-post from RSS feeds — Have posts automatically shared to social media from any RSS feed.

Chrome Extension – With the OneUp Chrome extension, you can easily schedule many images at once from any website.

You can choose which images from the website you want to post to social media, bulk update or individually update the descriptions and links for each post, then schedule them to be posted with a set interval (such as every 60 minutes), or choose custom dates and times for all of them.

Customizable UTM parameters – OneUp lets you customize UTM parameters so you can keep track of how your links are performing in Google Analytics.

Link Shortening – Connect your Bitly account and OneUp will automatically shorten any links and allow you to track clicks through Bitly.

Schedule Twitter Threads – Not many scheduling tools allow you to schedule Twitter threads (AKA tweetstorms), however you can do so with OneUp.
