This week, I bring you an article from Naveen Singh, Marketing Manager at Social Aider.
I have looked at several social media management tools and never really found my perfect tool at a price I could afford! However I am particularly attracted to Social Aider because, for a very reasonable cost, it's packed full of features that are often only found in much more expensive tools.
The article was written by Naveen, but it has inspired me to start testing Social Aider instead of some of my existing tools. You can try Social Aider here (affiliate link).

Other Social Media Scheduling Tools
We won’t lie to you and say that Social Aider is the only, or even the best, Social media scheduling tool. It isn’t! This app has got its own set of pros and cons.
As a customer, if you are looking for the best social media scheduling tool and if you are a power user, then you might also consider using Hootsuite. Hootsuite is a tool which is favored by many experienced social media marketers. Another excellent tool is AgoraPulse.
However, if you are looking for a budget-friendly and easy to use social media scheduling tool, then do consider investing in Social Aider. Here's just a couple of reasons why:
- Social Aider offers free integration of as many projects/ social media accounts as you wish for no additional costs.
- Social Aider is ideal for small businesses and individuals because of the price.

We have listed the features of Social Aider and how it compares with similar tools in the market. (Prices correct at time of writing – April 2018).
Update August 2019 – the published price of Social Aider was a launch price and is no longer correct, but it's still excellent value when compared to other tools.
While there are exceptionally good tools available in the market, everyone has different requirements and budgets. This is why there is no one perfect tool that fulfills the social media needs for all.
Let’s look at two such tools and compare them with Social Aider to get an idea of the trade-offs for the major features that each of these tools offer.
The unlimited social media profiles’ linking offered by Social Aider really is amazing but you need to weight that against the social monitoring and analytics features in Hootsuite and AgoraPulse.
Which is most important to you, as a user? Budget and time saving, or analytics that you may not have time to get to grips with.

To choose the best value for money, it helps to make a list of your specific requirements and compare the same with the features of other tools available on the market.
