Crowdfire can do a lot for you and your social media presence. It will post content to your various accounts based on preset parameters that you provide, which gives you more time to focus on what matters without sacrificing a steady social media presence. By default, Crowdfire is compatible with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Medium, Vimeo, LinkedIn, Etsy, WordPress, 500px, and Shopify. There are many other platforms that you can also use with this app. Perhaps the greatest thing about this software is that it works while you are away to maintain your activity in various social networks. Posts can be set for any specific time you prefer, or you can allow the system to decide when the posts need to be added for optimal visibility. You can automate as much or as little of the process as you like. If you use the mobile version of Chrome, you can use a convenient extension for the app to link your social media accounts to any source page you want with just a few clicks. The convenient RSS feeder also makes it easy to source your content online. You can even use the software to release the same post multiple times over a period of weeks or months. Not only does it allow you to control your various social media accounts, but with Crowdfire, you'll be able to take advantage of control features that don't even exist on the native platforms themselves. For instance, you can use the dedicated Twitter tools to track non followers, inactive followers, recent unfollowers, competitors, followers of competitors, and much more. Small businesses all across the globe use Crowdfire to help expand their visibility in the online spectrum. This is also true of writers, artists, private sellers, and other freelancers. The free version of the app obviously costs nothing, but it comes with some limitations as well. Subscriptions for the full-service app will remove those limits, and you can select plans on either a yearly or monthly payment schedule. Each plan auto-renews until you cancel. The features of the Plus account are quite nice. You can use two linked accounts, and each account can use a maximum of 100 scheduled posts. While the limits on Twitter usage that are imposed by Twitter are still enforced, the Plus account gives you unlimited usage of their Twitter features. You can also use the Plus account to publish content directly to the Pinterest platform. For a monthly subscription, you'll pay $9.99 each month, and for an annual subscription, you'll pay $59.99 every year. Auto-renewal occurs immediately upon completion of the previous subscription, and they can be canceled at any time.
Free version is ok, not worth paying for. There are a lot of better alternatives on the market! Try Coschedule or Hootsuite if you want better results. VERY bad customer service, no replies to emails or tweets when I had issues. Payments renew automatically, so be careful if you go premium and don't like it, you'll keep getting charged.
