Later’s limits cost you as your business grows. Expensive per user pricing, lack of collaboration and approval workflows, and the inability to actually auto-post across all channels holds growing teams back.
Cross-post everything, everywhere. Repurpose Instagram posts in a couple of clicks, or create original content for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok and more.
”Sked makes it easier to post to multiple social platforms and tailor the media and copy for each accordingly. The visual planner is a great tool for strategy and overall look/feel.”
”I can now schedule weeks of posts in advance, my clients can view the schedule and approve/make changes as required. I'm no longer chained to the screen posting like crazy.”
Individuals or small teams with no plans of growing get by on Later. Users constantly run into Later's limits — on the number of posts, number of users, basic analytics, limited supported social platforms, and a lack of adequate support for a business tool.
”It can get expensive really quickly if you’re a social media manager with a lot of clients.”
”The number of scheduled posts per month was too low for us to continue using Later for large scale organizations.”
”Gets quite pricey when you start utilizing it for a lot of accounts. Definitely focused on smaller teams.”
”Extremely expensive if you manage multiple brands and accounts. Cheaper plans don’t provide much value.”
”Almost no analytics in the lower tiers. And too expensive just to upgrade for that aspect.”
”Later only allows a certain number of posts per social account per month unless you have the top tier paid account.”
With Sked, you get unlimited posts on all plans, unlimited users from $63/month, and features built for teams that need to manage multiple accounts together.
Rather than pay $5 each time you add a user, collaborate with as many team members, clients, and contractors as you want — no extra cost.
Manage multiple accounts, cross-post unlimited posts across more social platforms, and do it all inside Sked as a team.
Invite teams and clients to provide feedback on your strategy and content, and approve or reject content before it goes live.
Individuals or small teams with no plans of growing get by on Later. But growing teams constantly run into Later’s limits — paying per user, limited social accounts and posts, and a lack of features on all but the most expensive plan.
Grab or create content, drop it on to a perfect copy of your Instagram feed, and you’re done. Each post will auto-publish (for real) at the time you’ve assigned to each slot. And captions, first comments with hashtags, link stickers, and tags post automatically, too.
”The visual planner is my favourite feature, allowing me to create a beautiful looking Instagram feed.”
Later will send you a notification telling you to login and manually post your Story. Forget notifications. With Sked, you can actually auto-post Stories, Reels, videos, carousels, and images.
”This platform has made it possible for me to truly sign off of work when the weekend hits, while content is still being published. It’s allowed me to have great work-life balance, and that’s worth a lot to me!”
Create fresh content or repurpose and cross-post to 9 platforms. Later stops at Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and TikTok. With Sked, you add YouTube, Snapchat, and Google Business Profile, too.
”It is so easy to schedule posts across multiple platforms in bulk format. That saves our team hours upon hours a month.”
Feedback and approvals get lost in email, Slack, and wherever else your team works. With Sked, your team’s feedback is never far from the content it’s related to. The result? Fewer missed messages, and more content getting the green light.
”Sked Social has changed the way we collaborate. We have tried other products, but collaboration and multi-account management has not been as easy as it has been with Sked.”
Sked replaces your one Instagram link with a custom link to an on-brand landing page with links to products, services, a newsletter, articles, and any other URL.
”I love the link in bio feature, as well. It helps me ensure I never forget to add a link while posting.”
See up to 2 years of historical analytics for posts, Reels, and Stories — 1 year more than you’ll get with Later. This, along with tracking competitors and accounts you look up to will help you dial in your social media strategy.
”The analytics Sked Social offers are fantastic [ ... ] There’s so much scope for growth when you’re able to truly see what’s working and what isn’t.”
Our Fundamental plan starts at $25/mo and provides unlimited posts to a single user. Later’s Starter plan costs $18/mo and allows a single user to a max of 30 posts per month.
We really shine for teams with more than one user. Sked Social’s Essential ($75/mo)and Professional ($135/mo) plans allow you to schedule and post with no limitations and invite unlimited free users to your account. On equivalent Later plans (Growth, at $40/mo and Advanced, at $80/mo), the number of users and posts per month are very limited, forcing many to pay for additional users.
On our Fundamentals plan, you get 1 user. But if you choose our Essentials orProfessional plans, you get unlimited free users. This gives you freedom to add as many team members and clients as you want — without paying extra fees.
Absolutely yes! We know that getting approvals from clients is one of the hardest parts of the social media process — especially for visual content. With Sked Social, you can send your clients to a branded portal (no login needed) where they can see a preview of your content and approve your work following a custom process set up by you.
Clients do not count as users on our platform because they are invited through a link and don’t need to login. Also, when we say you can add unlimited users to Sked Social, we mean team members, clients, and contractors.
Yes, you can auto-post images, carousels, Reels, and Instagram Stories. No push notifications or alarms. Just set it and forget it.
