The different in capabilities is significant. The Standard and Professional plans from Sprout Social are more expensive than POSTOPLAN’s Start and Business subscriptions. Additionally, Sprout Social limits the number of accounts. This is a shortcoming, since SMM professionals quite often maintain more than 10 accounts in various social networks. In POSTOPLAN in the Business subscription, you can work with dozens and even hundreds of additional accounts, making an unlimited number of posts in each of them.
Only POSTOPLAN lets its users post in Telegram, expanding your opportunities for SMM promotion.
