Social media publishing: Buffer vs. RiteKit Package

Buffer Essentials is $5/month per channel, while RiteForge is $15/month for unlimited channels.

As you add the social profiles of just one or two clients, you will need their Agency Plan: $100/month for 10 social profiles to publish to. With RiteKit Package, unlimited social profiles.

With Buffer Pablo, nothing is templated; each use of Pablo opens a new browser tab and forgotten when you close the tab.
