Which Social Media Management Tools for a One-Off Cost?

... rather than paying fee every month or year?

There's dozens of tools out there to manage lots of accounts on different social media platforms at once. We all know about Hootsuite, Buffer, Dlvr etc. etc. These all charge a monthly fee for the premium versions that handle more than just, say, three social media account.

I've recently come across BuzzBundle, which charges a one-off fee (importantly including lifetime updates) of about US $200.00. This would be much cheaper for many folks in the medium to long term than the dozens of tools charging a fee every month.

Which other social media management tools are there that one can buy for a one-off cost please?

Thanks for the input and wishing everyone at WebmasterWorld forums a successful 2017!

which charges a one-off fee (importantly including lifetime updates)

I'm not sure that "a lifetime of updates" is correct. As I read the order page description of what you get with the $200 Professional plan (my emphasis added to the following)...
...you get free 6 months of BuzzBundle Maintenance plan
That's not the same as a lifetime.

I have no idea how good BuzzBundle is, but I would compare features, needs, and price... as well as what they cost when you scale up the features that you want. They can all start getting expensive, depending on the features.

Also, if you're buying into a company that promises a "lifetime" of updates (which, again, seems not to be correct), you should check into how long they've been in business. On a quick look, I couldn't find that information.

Thank you for the feedback guys.

Robert, your information has been very useful. I didn't notice the 6 month term for Buzzbundle. Much appreciated.

I'd be interested to hear how that package works out for anyone who tries it. I've been playing with Friends+Me (on the low end for personal) and Agora Pulse (not cheap, for managing teams). A one-time payment would appeal to the budget conscious.
