Pricing, maybe one more cheaper option?
I'd personally love to see something like $3-$5 for 20 in buffer without any of the other 'special' items.
Hi lisa, thanks for the suggestion. We are certainly pondering a few things on our pricing right now, I am not sure we are going to change anything soon, I will keep you posted here for sure though!

Like others, I don't need the extra features that come with the "Awesome" plan -- I'm not a professional social media manager -- and consequently can't see paying $10/month for them. I just need to be able to add a few more accounts, and $5/month seems much more palatable for something along those lines.
Erlend Heggen commented
A $3/month plan (make it an even $30/year) combined with automatic retweets would make me a paying customer, I guarantee it.

If you really want to disrupt things, add bitcoin payment addresses to buffer to allow a user to do an on-demand purchase for an "extra" buffered item over the free number allowed.
Keeping it to 1 monthly plan and 1 on-demand charge keeps the cost structure super-simple without drastically cannibalizing the other option like multiple tiers might.
Feel free to contact me for more information on bitcoin and I'll point you at some more resources, http://weusecoins.com is a good start.
Honestly, Hootsuite is offering more value for small businesses than buffer, for instance the ability to add 5 profiles, no matter if you add two Twitter accounts. Many small business owners and freelancers like me - especially in the startup community - manage their private and business accounts, so for them it makes much more sense to go to Hootsuite (which also has the cheaper upgrade plan with more functionality.
THEN AGAIN you guys are so neatly lean, and that's why we hang out over here. I will HAVE to connect a second Twitter account now. Ten bucks are too much to a rational being after looking at the competition (and, doing consulting for pricing strategies myself, I know they ARE too much). The market - the outside conditions - pressure me to use my (of course already registered) Hootsuite account now, and stray away from you guys, as will many users. Your chances of recollecting these lost customers are close to zero.
People wish for a $5 plan REALLY dearly: http://dailytekk.com/2012/03/05/100-professional-social-media-business-tools-for-brands-and-marketers/
Your product offers excellent scalability, and your market niche is HUMONGOUS. Plus, your business model & product are super easy to copy. Finding the perfect pricing is basically an existential question for you.
I suggest you try to A/B test a $5 plan.
(Because $5 seems the sweet spot for your service, and that means that at some point, one of the entrepreneurs from this discussion thread or elsewhere WILL set up a lean service for less than ten bucks.)
Other than that: keep up the good work!
(Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.)
Im currently paying the $10 per month.. but as soon as Facebook release the ability to schedule posts with images within their iPhone Pages app, I'm going to cancel the buffer subscription. Unless ofcourse, the price is reduced to $5< or a once off cost.
Guess they axed that idea.
Ulises Bastien commented
Please consider One-Time payment for suscription.
Eric Loyd commented
Ideally, I'd like to pay a one-time fee to add additional feeds ($100 per feed?) or to add additional slots ($100 for 100 slots?).
I know the whole "sell them razor blades" recurring monthly revenue model, but you'll never get $120 per year out of me for something I can code in Perl tailored to my personal needs.
The only real reason I want a plan is to stop the annoying email!!!
I could do with more than 10 in my buffer at a time but can live with it. A slightly better pricing structure is a must. Not sure what happened to the premium and pro plans, as if naming something going awesome will entice people in! Go back to at least what it was before with pricing but developing it more would increase revenue. I am a single twitter user who doesn't want to pay through the nose for something that is just for fun. If I made money from it then maybe but as it is you get no money from me until there is a better structure (or an alternate service that provides the same or similar)
As mentioned by the many commentors: Multiple Plans and multipe payment options would be great. $12 per year or $2 per month is right in my sweet spot. Individual user, just enjoying Twitter. Will stay on the free plan with 10 in buffer til then.
Angela Alexander commented
I too would like a cheaper option for just a subset of the "Awesome plan". For me, it would be the multiple schedules, and maybe a few more tweets. And also being able to skip time(s).
Florencio de Andrade commented
Yes 10$/mo is too much I think, Buffer is the same price as Spotify Premium... common they have much more things to pay (streaming bandwith, music licences...) !!
maybe the best option would be something like 3 to 4,99$/month per account connected with unlimited posting, pricing would be fair.
thanks a lot for listening,
Neil Roberts commented
The only thing I want lifted is the 10 post limit
I'd be interested in this, $10 is too much for this kind of service and the only feature I would want it to add more than one Twitter account, nothing else. So, $2-$3 per month would be OK.
Fran Cotton commented
I thought it was free!
Chris Marsden commented
$3-5 is exactly where I was thinking. $10 seems too much for just me.
Maybe $3-5 for unlimited buffer, multiple schedules, etc...
$5-7 for additional twitter accounts, and $10 for additional team members.
To jump from free to $10 for multiple twitter accounts and an extra team member when all I really want is a more flexible schedule and a larger buffer seems silly.
Jerry Davis commented
If it were just me, as a personal user, I'd kick down $4.99 a month, no problem. But my employer is paying for it and I'm using it professionally, so in that scenario $10 is actually a bargain. I'm not sure if anyone else has suggested this, but maybe you could split the cost structure for personal users and business users. $4.99 for personal use, $14.99 for business use? I would be able to justify the expense in both directions.
Not everyone is working, some are retired, at 82 on minimum Social Security, with costs increasing almost daily, it does not go very far.
