The differences between RiteTag, RiteForge, Riteboost and

Updated March 22, 2023

For most use cases and customer types, from solopreneurs and nonprofits to startups and also for large companies, the RIteKit Package is best, both economically, and for all you get. See this page for all you get with the RiteKit Package. For those who prefer to use a different social media post scheduling/publishing solution, and do not need to import content from .RSS and 13 other sources, and do not also need a hashtag generator, etc., we do offer RiteKit's four products a la carte or, in a pay-for-just-what-you-need basis:

RiteTag ("Hashtags" in our site's top menu) does real-time analytics-based hashtag engagement color-grading along with hashtag suggestions for Instagram, Twitter and beyond. Search our tutorials for using the RiteTag browser extension with your favorite social media management tools, sites and right inside all social and content networks. Browser extension and mobile app included when you pay for RiteTag.

RiteForge ("Publishing" in our site's top menu) is the post-crafting and social publishing solution.

RiteBoost ("Enhance" in our site's top menu) delivers Enhance in all social publishing products. ("Link ads" in our site's top menu) lets you create and save unlimited self-branded Link Ads (text, image or video calls-to-action) on pages you share as URLs in social posts and elsewhere.

Get them all with the RiteKit Package when you hit Upgrade below "RiteKit Package.. Start with a free trial of that, if you haven't. Everything but Hashtag Reports and Instagram Account Coach Reports (charged per report, as the data costs are high) are included.

See this 6-minute video to understand which solutions are provided by each of the four RiteKit products.

For Enhancing and publishing, you would need RiteForge. If you use and prefer Buffer, Hubspot, Sproutsocial, Sendible or any other social publishing product and just want Enhance (auto-hashtagging, auto-emojify, author-attribution, link shortening with a Link Ad on page URLs in social posts (and much more), you'll want RiteBoost, which also includes the Bulk Creator automation dashboard.

This help page may help, too, as it compares our social media post creation and publishing product, RiteForge with Buffer, and compares with on features you get for the money.

All of our free trials are truly "no obligation," no credit card pre-authorization
You can trial any of the RiteKit products for free, without credit card pre-authorization**. We do not "assume the sale"; if you do not wish to keep RiteTag, RiteForge, RiteBoost or, when your trial expires, we do not automatically bill you.

Let's compare: The closest competitor's tier pricing vs. RiteKit just-what-you-need pricing

Say you just launched a budding social media management agency. Your low and mid-tier clients will use your domain for their URLs. You have no top-tier clients yet. When you do, you will set up and use their domain for their URLs. For now, just the one domain will do. 

Because the closest competitor to,, offers features based on their tiers, the cheapest tier you'll need to get even one custom domain is Business: US$59/month. That would cost you $15/month ( Pro) with us. Even just to replace the logo (linked to their site) with your new agency's logo or your client's logos, again, due to their packages, the number of brand logos are limited by tier, and the cheapest tier that allows this at all is Business, $29/month. With, you get unlimited brand logos and unlimited Link Ads at just $15/month. Beyond that, metering is done by monthly clicks on your links.

RiteKit Package's vs. and six other value-added link shorteners

Pay for the link clicks you need, custom domains you need, and scale up or down on a month to month basis with Start very small and only pay more for more domains or clicks/month as your revenue grows.

Social media publishing: Buffer vs. RiteForge

Social media publishing: Buffer vs. RiteForge

Buffer Essentials is $5/month per social profile ("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, 2,000 scheduled posts across unlimited social profile queues. Further, you get all the social crafting tools built into the RiteForge Composer, included templated and dynamically-font-resizing text images (Image/Gif Templates). With Buffer Pablo, nothing is templated; each use of Pablo opens a new browser tab and forgotten when you close the tab.

Are you on Buffer Agency? Compare what you get for $100 from Buffer with what we give you for $65/month from Ritekit: the full RiteKit package

When you consider that it makes sense to publish more frequently to some social profiles rather than, say, LinkedIn or Facebook, the ability to spread your posts-in-queues limit as you wish - and thus, might do 5 to 15/day per Twitter account, but just 1/day per LinkedIn company page - lets you do more with any tier of RiteForge vs. Buffer. You might also want to compare the package with MeetEdgar.

We think you'll like social post auto-generation with Enhance and generating text images in 2 seconds, not 6 minutes - and soft-selling every time you share a post containing a URL. Only RiteKit offers this, either with RiteForge or the RiteKit Package.

What's more, with Buffer, you would need to pay for to bake your advertisements onto what people see when they click URLs in your social posts. All of the following, for, is included in the RiteKit Package:A huge plus, beyond the far more gradual price jumps in RiteForge tiers is how with RiteForge, your queued posts limit is for all posts combined, spread over all your social profile queues. Thus, while you may have some clients on your lite or "bronze" plan, and you might just create and schedule 1 to 3 posts/day for just Twitter and Facebook, your enterprise or "platinum" clients may get 10 posts/day and to more social profiles. With Buffer, it's a flat 2,000 posts/queue limit and just a matter of how many social profiles; with RiteForge, there's no limit on social profiles, just the posts queued. Thus, if you have several small clients, you would have what you need with RiteForge at $29 or $99/month.

Maybe I need all four tools? They work together for a compound effect, and you save 45% when you take the RiteKit package

Startups, small businesses, clubs, nonprofits and solopreneurs will all want to do what we at RiteKit do by using all four of our products in combination:
Build an audience by sharing the content of others while soft-selling on top of the content. Here's the process.
See one of our social profiles, note how we share the blog posts and other content of others - all stuff that's right for our audience - and if you click on the links in our posts, you'll see how we advertise on top of the content. This is how we make social media our number one source of inbound marketing, selling as we build a targetted audience. See this page for how to do this automatically.

Looks like a lot to learn?

Not really. Once you get your social profiles added and scheduling times set, make a Link Ad and a couple Formulas, you will automate away the social post refinements that you've done (or should be doing). A little time spent for set up is about to save you hours/week for years to come.
