We often get this question from our users... "What are the benefits of having a paid plan on Planoly?". While we do offer a free plan, to unlock the full potential of your social strategy and streamline your workflow with Planoly, we recommend a paid plan. In this blog post, we'll explain everything you need to know about the difference between all of our plan options, so you can be better equipped to choose the plan that’s right for you.
Before we jump in, I think it’s worth mentioning a few key features that all Planoly users have access to. With any Planoly plan, you can auto-post content to every channel linked in your social set including Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Linkedin, Pinterest, and YouTube. You can visually plan your content, utilize our integrated social calendar for key holidays, events, and content inspiration, import content directly from Canva & more. One other big benefit of using Planoly is that you have access to our free link in bio tool, Linkit. You can create a visual gallery of all your posts and drive traffic to your website, blog, or another landing page online.
Now that you know some of the key features in, let’s dive into the different plan options.
The Personal Plan is our FREE plan and is a great option if you’re on a really tight budget but you still want to visually plan, schedule and auto-post your content. On this plan, you get one social set and one of each kind of workspace: a multi-channel planning workspace, a dedicated Instagram only workspace, and a dedicated Pinterest only workspace. That said - there are some limitations worth noting that could impact your experience. The Personal Plan has a limit of 10 uploads (not scheduled posts) per workspace per month that resets the 1st of each month. Uploads include anything added to your planning grid from any source. Personal Plans also don’t have access to some of our most time-saving features like our AI Caption Writer, Ideas Manager, and Hashtag Manager.
That’s why instead we recommend starting a free trial to understand if Planoly is a fit for your brand or business. Every new user is eligible for a 7-day free trial of any paid plan which comes with full access to all the features of that plan so you can get the entire Planoly experience.
So we’re a little biased, but with all the ways to get inspired, save time, and streamline your workflow that are available with a Planoly subscription, we can’t recommend our paid plans enough. Paid plans get you access to all our most creator-friendly features in a multi-channel workspace to help you brainstorm, organize, and manage your content, then plan and schedule to all your most important channels. You can get inspired by our weekly trend recommendations with ways to repurpose for your niche, save and organize all your ideas in folders, and create and manage hashtag groups in Planoly. Once you’re ready to post, you can upload from your Ideas and easily insert hashtags to your post at the click of a button from within the multi-channel workspace. Plus if you’re having trouble writing a caption or just want to save time planning posts, you can auto-magically write a caption that sounds like your brand voice with the power of AI.
Some additional perks of any paid plan in the dedicated Instagram workspace include our Quick Schedule feature, where you save frequently used posting times to quickly reuse in the future. In addition to Quick Schedule, we offer 'Best Time to Post', which gives suggested times when your audience is online to maximize reach. You're also able to respond to Instagram post comments instantaneously from your laptop using our Comment Management Tool for the fifteen latest posts. For Instagram, you will have access to Basic and Advanced Analytics, so you can track post-performance and learn more about your audience - where they’re located and other demographics.
If you’re just getting started as a content creator, the Starter Plan could be a great fit. The Starter Plan is just $14 per month if billed annually or $16 month to month. One social set is included in this plan, which means you can link one of each channel in a multi-channel workspace including Instagram, TikTok, X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Pinterest. It also includes one dedicated Instagram planning workspace and one dedicated Pinterest planning workspace. This plan includes 1 user, meaning 1 login on Planoly to manage your content planning. With the Starter Plan, you will be able to upload up to 60 pieces of content per workspace per month - including images and videos.
If you are starting to gain some momentum with your brand or business, the Growth Plan is a great option. This is our most popular plan and is a great way to collaborate with others on your content. The primary difference between the Starter and Growth plan is that you will get 3 user logins, meaning 3 team members can access, plan and schedule content for your social channels. Another key differentiation is that with the Growth Plan you will have unlimited uploads - meaning there’s no need to worry about maxing out each month on uploads. The Growth Plan is $24 per month if billed annually or $28 month to month.
The Professional Plan is our most robust plan and is great for agencies or individuals managing multiple brands or businesses. The primary difference between the Growth and Professional plan is that you will get 2 social sets, meaning 2 of all your social channels and 2 of each type of workspace. The other main difference is that you will have 6 user logins, meaning 6 team members can collaborate to plan and schedule content for your social channels. The Professional Plan starts at $36.50 per month if billed annually or $43 month to month.
You now know the ins and outs of the various plans. It’s worth noting that you can customize each plan to fit your needs. You can easily add additional social sets or users to any plan to make the most out of.
If you’re still unsure if it makes sense to invest in a paid account, you can always sign up for a free 7-day trial and try out all of our features. For additional questions about our plans and which one is the best fit for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
