Is your current social media management tool pricing higher than what people are paying for a new car payment or rent in the city?
It may sound like a Geico commercial, but brands and agencies that switch to Vista Social can save an average of 70% on their SMM tool budget. 🦎
The tech economy is booming in 2023, so why is social media management tool pricing at an all-time high when there are more options to choose from?
By analyzing dozens of SMM tools, we calculated pricing based on team size—so you can accurately evaluate if you’re overspending and find ways to get more of that money back in your pockets.

Platforms like Later may be priced well, but there is a catch—their pricing is not based on the number of profiles.
Later pricing provides their customers with a “social set,” which means you can connect only one profile to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, TikTok, and LinkedIn.
So, if you have 7 Instagram profiles to manage, that’s not 7 profiles—it’s 7 social sets which makes the price significantly higher.
Your social media management tool pricing may look affordable, but you often can’t access all of the features you need without spending a lump sum amount.
Social media networks are always evolving by launching new features and algorithms to provide a better user experience for all.
The problem is that since social media technology is such a fast-moving target, not many SMM tools can keep up!
We’ve noticed that many platforms do not offer fairly basic social media management features that should be available.
