Is HeyOrca a better scheduler than Later?

Later is an effective tool for individual creators and solo social media managers who focus on Instagram.

HeyOrca makes it easy to create content, get client approval, engage with your community, and report on your impact – all in one place.

Does HeyOrca charge a fee for additional users?

Nope! With HeyOrca, you can add unlimited users to your account for free, no matter what plan you're on. With Later, you'll need to pay $5.00 USD per month for each additional user. And you can only add extra users to select Later plans.

Are HeyOrca's reporting features more robust than Later's?

Later offers in-depth Instagram performance reports, but if you want to report on accounts across all leading social networks, you'll find HeyOrca's reporting features more comprehensive (and client-friendly!). With HeyOrca, you can compare your performance across social channels, automatically email PDF reports to clients on a recurring schedule, analyze your performance against competitors, leverage AI report summaries, and more.

How does HeyOrca's pricing work?

HeyOrca's pricing is based on calendar count. A calendar is a client-specific space where you'll schedule posts, store media, access reports, and more. You'll want a separate calendar for each client you serve. For example, if you have 5 clients, you'll want 5 calendars. Once you're all set with your calendars, you don't have to worry about hidden fees. Every HeyOrca plan comes with unlimited users, unlimited media storage, unlimited use of AI tools, and unlimited scheduled posts. With Later, you'll need to pay extra for additional users and AI use. Depending on your Later plan, you may also have to pay extra to schedule more posts.
