Growth Launchpad vs. AiGrow – what’s better for growing your Instagram?

Keeping with our series comparing Instagram automation tools from around the web, today we’re looking at Growth Launchpad.

What is Growth Launchpad? According to their website, 

Growth Launchpad offers an organic Instagram marketing service for individuals, influencers, and brands. We work to connect you with real people, so you can get more friends, partnerships, and sales.

Growth Launchpad is right in our neighborhood of Instagram marketing, so we decided to put it to the test against our own Instagram marketing tool, AiGrow.

Our comparison consisted of four categories:

  • Setup
  • Connecting Instagram account(s)
  • Features
  • Maintenance and Support
  • Price

Growth Launchpad vs. AiGrow – a comparison of two Instagram growth services

Set up

Growth Launchpad

  2. When on the homepage, click “Free Trial” in the upper right corner. You can also click on the “ START 5 DAY FREE TRIAL” button.
  1. Provide your name, email, desired password, and click “Register Now”. 

Congrats! You’ve just set up AiGrow.

Connecting Instagram account(s)

Growth Launchpad

After you sign up, you will be prompted with a demographic questionnaire. While you are completing the demographic form, Growth Launchpad will be working to set up your account and getting it ready to grow (ya that was a pun) within 48 hours. 

Growth Launchpad’s team will be in touch during the whole onboarding process, including sending you access to your analytics and scheduler dashboard. 

AiGrow

When you are finished with the setup, you want to connect your IG account. To do so, on the dashboard, click on “Add Instagram Account” and enter your username and password. For some accounts, Instagram may send a 6-digit code that AiGrow will ask for. 

After connecting, your account will be shown on the dashboard. You can add multiple IG accounts to your AiGrow’s dashboard.

Features

Growth Launchpad

Growth Launchpad comes with multiple features you can use to grow your Instagram account. Also, the platform gives you access to two free tools to help you up to your Instagram game. Here we are exploring them:

24/7 Growth Engine

Growth Launchpad enables you to put your Instagram growth on autopilot. Then you have more time to focus on the most important things. Growth Launchpad engages with posts and accounts from your audience on your behalf including Liking posts and comments, Following, Unfollowing, Viewing Stories, Auto-Comments, and DMs. 

Targeting Audience

Provide Growth Launchpad with information about your audience (Locations, Hashtags, Accounts they follow, Bio keywords, Engager of accounts/ Posts ) and the platform will build an engagement strategy. As Growth Launchpad engage, your audience will receive notifications; acting as a call to action to check out your page. 

Smart Filters

Engaging with the right audience is key to success. Growth Launchpad’s filters help remove the unwanted accounts and only focus on your audience. The platform can filter by gender, location, language, post topics, business accounts, bio length, how active they are, blacklisted captions, private accounts and more. 

The Scheduler

If you want to save time managing your Instagram account Growth Launchpad’s scheduler tool allows you to auto-post or schedule future posts from your desktop or mobile. Post photos, videos, albums, and even stories.

Analytics Dashboard

With the Analytics dashboard you are able to track your growth daily, weekly, monthly, or however, you please. Growth Launchpad’s dashboard shows your account statistics, including daily growth, engagement rates, most popular posts, follower to following, and more. 

AiGrow

AiGrow uses your account to automatically like, follow, unfollow, comment, and DM on real channels in order to drive organic traffic back to your own account.

This way, instead of purchasing lots of followers who don’t necessarily fit your target (which is really important if you run a small business or brand), you’re gaining exactly the kinds of new followers you need for your account.

With AiGrow, you can target your activity based on:

You can also target other activitiy, such as DMs, based on:

  • Hashtags

  • Lists of usernames
  • new followers
  • current followers

Furthermore, you can select a category that you think best fits your business. We’ll use this information to improve your targeting.

Also, you don’t need to worry about engaging with inappropriate or risky accounts as you have complete control over the types of users you interact with. And be sure that AiGrow will never operate any extra actions to your Instagram account without your permission.

AiGrow also automatically unfollows users who you follow but doesn’t follow you back within a certain amount of time to keep your follower/following ratio normal.

Engagement groups

AiGrow allows you to join over 300 engagement groups FOR FREE which you can use to get more Likes, comments, saves and shares on every new post you share on Instagram. 

Engagement groups are groups of people who agree to engage with every new post upload to Instagram by a group member.

With AiGrow, there are two easy steps to getting engagement from your engagement groups:

  1. Join any groups which are similar to your Instagram page by navigating to the “Engagement Groups” tab on your AiGrow dashboard and clicking “Join” under any groups you wish to join.
