Here are 10 less popular platforms to manage your social media if you’re sick of the expensive top five options.

If you’re a small business or marketing agency, social media better be part of your marketing strategy. It’s one of the best ways to engage with your audience and start building meaningful relationships.

While utilizing social media is a necessity, it does take time and effort to use effectively. That’s why there are a variety of social media management software available — to help make the process easier for everyone. Now, the only difficult part is deciding which software you want to purchase.

There are the industry leaders like Sprout Social or Hootsuite that you could find by doing a simple “social media management software” Google search. However, you might not like their price points, format, or features. If that’s the case, it can be a struggle to find less popular options because the top five dominate all search results. That was the case when I was looking for an alternative. Instead of giving up, I decided to keep digging.

I’ve compiled a list of alternative social media management software and their prices. If you’re like me and want options, read on to see some of the best of the rest (in alphabetical order).
