Keeping with our series comparing Instagram automation tools from around the web, today we’re looking at Fuelgram.
Update September 2020: Fuelgram is shut down.
For customers, it will be shocking news, but you could anticipate such an outcome. How? Because it used automation and fake accounts. If these two are common cold viruses, then Instagram is a cold stop. So if you want to continue reading this article, it’s still useful. Because it’s the best chance to know a manual tool without using automation and fake accounts. And if you don’t want to read it, just click here to use AiGrow for free.
What’s Fuelgram? According to their website,
“Fuelgram is the world’s largest engagement group platform where lead influencers exchange likes and comments to improve their Instagram performance.”
Fuelgram is right in our neighborhood of Instagram marketing, so we decided to put it to the test against our own Instagram marketing tool, AiGrow.
Here are the topics that we are going to look at:
- Connecting Instagram account(s)
- Maintenance and Support

Or, to make things easier, click on the “Start Free” button in the top right corner of the page you’re currently reading.

Connecting Instagram Accounts
When you are done with the setup, you then need to connect your IG account.
To do so, on your dashboard, click on “Add Instagram Account” and simply enter your IG username and password. For some accounts, Instagram may send a 6-digit code that AiGrow will ask for.
When you are finished with the connecting step, you can see your account on the dashboard. With AiGrow, you also the ability to add multiple Instagram accounts.
To start engaging with other accounts, you need to add your Instagram account.
To do so, when you are on the Fuelgroups tab click on “Buy Slots”. Then determine the number of accounts you want to add. You can run as many Instagram accounts as you need under one Fuelgram account. But each Instagram account needs to have a proper slot purchased in order to run. You can purchase up to 99 slots.
This service requires your Instagram account credentials to add your account.
When you are finished with the connecting step, you can see your account on the Account Management dashboard.
AiGrow users have access to multiple features of this platform.
- Scheduling Posts and Stories
- All-in-one Bio Link
- Auto DMs
- Organic or Manual Growth
- Desktop Inbox
Let’s talk about each one by one.
Organic or Manual Growth
Have you ever heard of the Follow Unfollow, Follow for Follow, and Like for Like methods? AiGrow’s dedicated managers will do all of these strategies for you. You are going to Like and Follow other people. In response, they will visit your profile and if they are interested, they may engage with you.
Instead of finding, Liking, Following, and Unfollowing all these people by yourself, which is a tedious activity that can take a lot of time, AiGrow has very skillful Instagram account managers who will do it for you. They will find users and engage with them while you are sitting back on your couch. Also, they will unfollow those accounts that don’t engage with you.
Note: AiGrow will not exceed the Instagram limit for Likes, Follow, and Unfollow. Your account manager uses these strategies regarding the limitation of the IG platform.
You just need to target prospective customers and followers. This targeting could be based on hashtags, locations, influencer accounts, or a list of usernames. The more hints you give AiGrow, the more specific will be the Likes and Comments.
After setting up your targeting options, simply hit “Start Growth”. AiGrow will start to run and continue until you tell it to stop, never overstepping the limits imposed by Instagram.
AiGrow’s Schedules your Posts and Stories
Scheduling your posts and Stories is no more difficult with AiGrow’s scheduler. To do so, on your dashboard click on the “Schedule Posts” tab. Then start uploading your content by dragging your images/videos. Insert a caption and set a time and date.
AiGrow also offers a tool for searching hashtags. Easily enter a hashtag and AiGrow will find the relevant hashtags and their popularity. Moreover, as you can add multiple accounts to your AiGrow’s dashboard scheduling a post on multiple pages seems easy for you.
All-in-one Bio Link
If you do your business using Instagram, you will face this limit that you cannot add more than one URL to your bio. And of course, if you are thinking about Instagram potentials for marketing, this isn’t good news. So, AiGrow helps you indirectly add an unlimited number of URLs to your bio. With this feature, you still have your one and only bio link, but it’s a magical bio link. So, it’s not against the rules and is just about bending it.
With AiGrow, you can also send automated DMs to targeted groups of people on Instagram.
You can send DMs to people based on:
- username lists
- connection to competitors
- current followers
- new followers
You can also manage your DM inbox from your desktop.
This means you can filter DMs based on reading, unread, sent, and all. It also means you can search for DMs from specific people and reply to DMs on a one-to-one basis from your desktop.
Fuelgram provides engagement groups you can use to get more Likes and comments on your posts.
The platform offers 3 different services depending on your goals:
Fuelgram Likes and Comments
Fuelgroups are automated engagement groups for top Instagram accounts to exchange likes and comments with each other as soon as they post. They help pages better expose their content and possibly gain more followers as a result.
With Fuelgroups, you can get Likes, views, and comments on all your posts. There are different engagement groups for different account sizes and niches.
Once you post, the platform detects it automatically and provides your account with Likes.
Powerservices are a set of premium services that Fuelgram offers to help users improve their reach and exposure on Instagram. This is done by providing engagement such as likes, comments, views, and impressions from high-quality Instagram accounts as soon as you post.
There are 3 different engagement types that you can order for Power services:
In Fuelgroups you require an account to give likes/comments, but with Power services, you are getting engagement without providing it back. So, there is no need to give them your login credentials, just the username.
Auto rounds is one of Fuelgram’s services where people Like each other’s most recent posts at certain times each day. Fuelgram calls this action rounds.
You can choose up to 3 daily rounds during which you will get Likes from 400 users on Telegram engagement groups at the chosen times. Once you set up your account, you just need to post at those times and Likes will be distributed over the course of three hours.
Maintenance and Support
If for whatever reason something forces your growth to stop, AiGrow’s team will automatically let you know through email and provide possible solutions, as shown in the example below:
If you experience an issue, you can also likely find an answer in AiGrow’s FAQ page. AiGrow also offers free one-on-one appointments to help get your account set up, and they also have a dedicated support email. AiGrow also offers a live chatbot for anyone with questions.
Once you are finished with setting up your account on Fuelgram services you don’t need to return to the platform as the service will be running 24/7.
But if there are difficulties with registration or the engaging process, you can likely find the answer on Fuelgram’s FAQ page. If you didn’t find what you are looking for, you can always write to the support team through email and live chatbox. Fuelgram’s professionals will be glad to solve all your problems.
AiGrow provides you with a seven-day trial offering absolutely full functionality with no limit for the number of followers, likes, or views you can receive. This service costs you only 1$ for each package.
Below you can see AiGrow’s starter price package when your seven-day trial ends:
Fuelgram’s pricing is different depending on the service you choose.
The Power service pricing changes according to the number of posts, Likes, Comments, Impressions/Views. Below you can see the prices for this service:
The Auto round service can be purchased at the prices below:
While Fuelgram offers 3 different services to grow your engagement on Instagram, they all have their issues. For example, on Fuelgroups you have a limited number of posts daily since you can only get a maximum of 1000 likes daily per provider. The accounts liking on Fuelgroups will also deliver views and impressions on your posts, whereas auto rounds will give only likes. Another issue is the high cost associated with more comprehensive services like Power services.
AiGrow, on the other hand, is a complete platform offering many ways to grow your Instagram at a more affordable price. While automated engagement groups are one of the features (AiGrow currently offers 300+ active, niche-based engagement groups), AiGrow also offers an automated growth engine, a free desktop post scheduler, automated DMs, and a desktop DM inbox.
AiGrow even allows you to create your own engagement groups and invite your friends, all from one dashboard.
