'We’ve got the whole team on the platform now - we know what blogs we’re going to write for the year, and now we can work together to schedule posts to go alongside them using Lightful.'


We will always have a free plan for those smaller and one-person teams, which still includes great features like unlimited scheduling and collaboration.
