Pricing Options and Packages

Juicer Social and EmbedSocial both offer tier-based pricing packages. They both offer free plans. The plans initially appear similar, but when you dig a bit deeper, you will find some differentiating factors that may influence your decision.

Small/Free Plans

Juicer offers a free social media aggregator plan that you can quickly sign up for without a credit card. Juicer’s free or “Small” plan allows you to add two social media sources and updates every 24 hours. Juicer’s free social media management plan is perfect for smaller businesses or marketers who only have a few social channels.

EmbedSocial’s free plan offers some of the same features as Juicer’s — including EmbedSocial’s branding at the bottom of the Feed. EmbedSocial’s free plan distinctly displays “Powered by Curator” on their free embedded feeds.

The biggest difference is that Juicer’s Small plan offers you two source feeds completely free. That means you can embed your Facebook feed and Instagram feed completely free. On the other hand, EmbedSocial requires you to choose one or the other.

Another major difference is Juicer allows users to embed their Twitter feeds as one of their two feeds. EmbedSocial requires users to sign-up for a paid plan if they want to embed tweets on their site.

Below is a comparison of Juicer.io and EmbedSocial’s free plans:

Medium Plan

Juicer’s Medium plan adds another 3 social source feeds giving you 5 in total. With this plan you are also provided hourly updates, moderation and filter tools. The small Juicer logo that appears in Small plan feeds is removed as well. Users can automatically prevent or allow posts that contain certain keywords in the medium plan as well.

The Juicer Social Medium plan costs only $19 per month which works out to $3.80 per source feed per month.

EmbedSocial’s “Pro” plan updates every 15 minutes, but it only includes two social source feeds. EmbedSocial’s Pro plan does include Twitter, but by only allowing two social source feeds, you can’t embed Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The 15-minute updates are a nice perk, but at the expense of including all the source feeds that you want, that perk doesn’t seem so great.

EmbedSocial’s Pro plan also costs $19, but when you break it down by source feeds, it’s considerably more expensive. Each source feed costs $9.50 per month — or 2.5 times the rate Juicer charges.

Over the course of a year, you’ll save $68 on a per-feed basis by using Juicer’s Medium plan versus EmbedSocial’s Pro plan.

Large Plan

Juicer’s Large plan and EmbedSocial’s Premium plan offer some similar features.

Both plans cost $99 per month. Juicer’s Large plan is designed for both companies and larger agencies that have a wide variety of social media integrations and need frequent updates. The Large plan pulls in posts every 10 minutes, 24 hours per day.

Juicer’s Large plan also offers advanced analytics features that enable users to track page views and clicks on your feed. This makes it easy to measure the increased engagement on your site in just a couple of clicks. Similar to Juicer, EmbedSocial offers full moderation and filtering options.

EmbedSocial’s Premium plan offers up to a total of 15 sources (same as Juicer), but they don’t specify how many different feeds can be built. Comparatively, Juicer emphasizes transparency — clearly stating that their Large plan offers 15 source feeds that can be embedded in 3 separate social feeds.

EmbedSocial’s Premium plan updates every 15 minutes — meaning four times per hour. Comparatively, Juicer updates every 10 minutes — meaning six times per hour. This isn’t a huge differentiator, but if you share content frequently, a few minutes can reduce lag and improve consistency.

Enterprise Packages

If you want even more options, Juicer Social and EmbedSocial also offer Enterprise packages that allow you to create unlimited social media feeds.

Juicer’s Enterprise package includes an initial account setup cost and then you are billed monthly based solely on the total number of social sources you use and how often the content is updated on your feeds.

The Enterprise package is designed for organizations that require more feeds and sources than the Large plans allow. Enterprise packages are recommended for agencies and businesses with constantly changing social feed needs.

If flexibility, adaptability and speed are important for your social media campaigns, an Enterprise package may be the best option for you. Enterprise packages update as fast as every minute and are highly customizable. Use the feeds you need. Never pay extra for overhead that isn’t bringing value to your social campaigns.

Juicer’s Enterprise package is also great for large events where you can display a live social wall on a big screen that updates instantly as your guests tweet. With live in-person events picking up again, contactless social wall activities are a great way to make use of technology and engage your audience in a safe, socially distant way.

Both Juicer and EmbedSocial’s Enterprise packages have full API access that allows your dev teams to completely customize your feed designs.

EmbedSocial offers custom enterprise packages but does not list any pricing tiers or other key details.

According to the WordPress EmbedSocial plugin page, the EmbedSocial plugin hasn’t been updated since early 2020. A disclaimer across the top page states, “This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.”

Customization Features

Both Juicer and EmbedSocial let you customize your feed to match your brand’s visual identity. 

Juicer offers 7 different gorgeous template options that can be fully previewed, adjusted, and tested within your dashboard.

You can also modify color schemes, interval speeds, columns, widths and heights so integration with your web pages fits with your brand and is unique to your site. The Small, free plan shows Juicer branding in the feed but all of the upgraded options eliminate that feature. The Medium plan ($19/month) enables full customization with no Juicer branding appearing anywhere.

EmbedSocial provides some nice feed themes. Some features include a variety of unique templates, font and color customization options, and the ability to highlight certain posts. Here’s an example from an EmbedSocial Instagram feed.
