The user-friendly (and wallet-friendly) Hootsuite alternative

Hootsuite is a powerhouse for enterprise social management. But if you’re looking for something that’s effortless to use, you’re in the right place.

And our plans start at $0/month.


So, what’s the difference between Later and Hootsuite?

With Hootsuite, you’re paying for a bunch of hefty integrations you probably won’t use.
But your social media management platform shouldn’t be more complicated than the channels you’re managing. Later is built to save you a ton of time and help you grow.

Here’s why over 3 million businesses choose Later

Our platform is
really easy to use

We’ll put it this way: Hootsuite isn’t exactly modern... or user-friendly. Later is super intuitive—no clunky interfaces, just seamless scheduling for social channels you actually use.
  • Smarter scheduling
    Later learns when your Instagram followers are most engaged, and suggests the best times to post. Drag-and-drop onto the calendar for quick scheduling—it’s that easy.
  • Visual Instagram planner
    See your feed the way your followers will see it. The visual planner helps you nail your aesthetic, and lets you rearrange content with drag-and-drop.
  • Scheduling for Stories, too
    Posts are just one part of a great Instagram strategy. With Later, you can plan and schedule your Stories—right from your desktop.

We’re built for business growth

Hootsuite is ideal if you’re an established team with a huge budget that spends all day responding to tweets. But for businesses that are still growing? We’ve got the best features—at the best price.
  • Drive website traffic by Later turns your Instagram feed into a clickable, shoppable page for your followers. Even better? is included on every plan (yep, even our free plan).
