Buffer Aggregated Reviews
I prefer Buffer, it allows you to schedule up to 10 posts on one account and after that you need to upgrade to continue using it. It is quite affordable.
The downside to scheduling posts when you are trying to grow/revive the account is that you sometimes need to share it in the engagment groups and put hashtags in the first comment when you post it, so it is a bit better to try manually posting in the beginning.
I use Buffer for Instagram, which works pretty well for the most part. You need to be mindful of the image ratio, but we are able to schedule up to 100 posts with the Pro version, which is way more than we need.
Other than the occasional hiccup with publishing (which we have to retry), we’ve had no problems.
I use free version of Buffer and if you want to automate several social media networks you can use:
From IFTTT to Pinterest/Twitter
From Instagram to Facebook directly
Between Buffer and Hootsuite , I feel that Buffer has a faster web app, Hootsuite Dashboard is too slow sometimes and I had a lot of problems with its app (iPhone XS).
I loved Buffer for years and still use it on occasion. They are easy to use! And they have a great chrome extension to make it easy to share anything from the web to any of your social network accounts.
I ended up going with buffer after trying both for a bit. I have it for an instagram account i’m running for personal project. I made the switch about a year and a half ago and so far have been really enjoying buffer. It does schedule posts pretty far in advance, posts automatically and gives you some analytics on popular posts but you would need to upgrade to the top level to get more metrics.
I vastly prefer Buffer. They also have support for Instagram video posting coming soon (Instagram just made such posts available through the API the other day).
i used to use Buffer too, but i needed the extra analytics that Sprout Social provided.

GRIN games emerged
As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
GRIN launcher is born.
It is an outreach platform that we use to establish connections with editorial teams.
They say samples of published articles look good but pricing looks even better
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
