However, with a price tag of $49 per month, Meet Edgar is not a realistic solution for most small business owners, bloggers, podcasters, or YouTubers.
So what options are there for those that would like to add content, create a posting schedule for specific times and dates, import RSS feeds, and schedule evergreen posts to be shared multiple times — all at an affordable price?
OneUp is a cheap alternative to Meet Edgar that works with the following social media platforms: Facebook Pages, Twitter accounts, LinkedIn profiles, LinkedIn Pages, Pinterest, and Google My Business. Similar to Meet Edgar, OneUp helps you get more social media traffic by automatically recycling your evergreen blogs, videos, or podcasts.
Let’s take a look at Meet Edgar vs. OneUp:
OneUp — $9/month
Meet Edgar — $49/month
Meet Edgar provides only one pricing tier: $49/month. This price works if you bring in a ton of revenue, but that is not the case for most businesses. If you are like most people, $49 per month is a steep price to pay.
OneUp starts at $9/month, making it a cheap alternative to Meet
OneUp — Works with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google My Business.
Meet Edgar — Works only with Facebook, LinkedIn
Meet Edgar does not work with Pinterest or Google My Business. In addition, Meet Edgar does not allow you to automatically reshare your evergreen content on Twitter. This is Meet Edgar’s core feature, yet you can only reshare your posts on two social networks: Facebook and LinkedIn.
OneUp allows you to schedule both one-time and evergreen posts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google My Business, making it a more robust alternative to Meet Edgar.
OneUp — If you want a simple way to schedule social media posts, OneUp is for you. You can select how many times you would like your evergreen posts to be recycled, and at what intervals, all with just a couple clicks.
For example, if you want to share your latest blog post once every 3 months and 5 times total, you can do that in about 10 seconds.
Meet Edgar — Like OneUp, Meet Edgar allows you to recycle your evergreen content, but it requires that you upload posts to a queue. The more content you add to your queue, the less frequently your posts will resurface. Depending on what you’re looking for, Meet Edgar could be a great solution.
However, many people just want their evergreen posts to be recycled at a set interval, like “once a month for the next 3 months”, without having to do the mental calendar math:
If I have 56 posts in my queue and I add my blog post, how often will it be republished if I am sharing 3 posts a day, but adding 2–5 more each week?
OneUp — With OneUp, you can view your individual posts, sort by social account or category, drag and drop posts to change the date, or click on the post to edit the content and time.
Meet Edgar — Meet Edgar provides a weekly recurring calendar, with time slots showing category only, not individual scheduled posts. You cannot drag and drop to adjust your schedule.
OneUp — Allows you to schedule GIFs on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+.
Meet Edgar — Only allows you to post GIFs to Twitter.
OneUp — Offers a free trial, no credit card necessary.
Meet Edgar — Requires a credit card for their free trial.
Nobody likes when they have to give their credit card information just to try something out. If a customer is getting value after a free trial, ONLY THEN should they be asked for payment information.
Meet Edgar requires a credit card just to test it out. If you forget to cancel in time, there goes $49.
OneUp offers a free trial (without a credit card) so you can see if it’s a good fit with your social media accounts.
For businesses with a higher budget, managing between 20–25 social media accounts, MeetEdgar might be the right social media management tool. They offer a useful product and great customer support for larger businesses that want to recycle their evergreen content.
For small business owners, podcasters, bloggers, YouTubers, and social media marketers that need a cheaper alternative to Meet Edgar, OneUp provides an affordable solution for scheduling and automatically resharing your evergreen content — as well as
