Keeping with our series comparing Instagram automation tools from around the web, today we’re looking at Instagrowth.
What’s Instagrowth? According to their website,
“Instagrowth easily automates everything such as your liking, commenting and following activities based on specific hashtags, as well as unfollow users from different sources.”
Instagrowth is right in our neighbourhood 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
Set up – Instagrowth vs. AiGrow
Start by going to Instagrowth’s website and clicking on “START 7 DAYS FREE”.
Then, you will be brought to the Instagrowth’s App-Guide page. Now, depending on your operating system, Windows or iOS, click on the Windows or Apple icon to install the app.
If you see the icon like below, it means that you’ve installed the extension successfully.
Once on aigrow.me, click on “FREE TRIAL” in the top right corner of our homepage.
Or, to make things easier, click on the “FREE TRIAL” button in the top right corner of the page you’re currently reading.
Then just provide your name, email, and desired password.
That’s all. No download required.
With AiGrow, you don’t need verification via email or download. Moreover, AiGrow’s platform is available in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Persian.
Connecting Instagram Accounts
To connect your Instagram account on Instagrowth, simply provide your login information like you would if you were logging into your Instagram on your phone.
Keep in mind that Instagram and Instagrowth app tabs must remain opened and connected to the internet at the same time.
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 have the ability to add multiple Instagram accounts.
Basically, Instagragrowth works based on Follow/Unfollow, Follow for Follow, and Like for Like strategies by automating your Follows, Likes, and Unfollows.
Also, you have the ability to target your Follows based on Hashtags simply by going to Instagram and searching for a hashtag. Then, click the buttons “Like Posts with this tag” and “Collect from this tag” and click save.
You can also automatically follow users based on if they are followers of a specific Instagram user. Once on the user’s page, click the button “Collect Followers” and then click “Save”. Make sure the “Activate” button on the Follows box is set to ON.
Here are the configurations of Follows:
- You may set the Pool option, which is basically the Queue of users.
Users stay in Queue so the are followed later.
- You may check or remove Users, Tags, Locations on this screen.
Here are the Filters of Follows:
- You may select the minimum and the maximum of Followers, Following and Posts for better targeting.
- You may select to target Private or Public accounts.
- Also, you may exclude accounts with specific keywords in their bio.
Here are the configurations of Unfollows:
- Check ‘Enable auto unfollows’ to unfollow new followed users. It’s recommended that you always have this option checked.
- Uncheck ‘Do not UnFollow followers’ if you want to unfollow users that are following you.
Here you may see the configurations for Likes:
- By default, the “Collect Posts from Home Feed to like” is enabled. It likes any post on your feed.
- If you activate “Collect Posts from Tags to Like”, visit a hashtag page on Insta and then click the button “Like Posts with this tag”.
- Set “Time interval between Likes (seconds)” to at least 60 seconds or check the Recommended Settings.
AiGrow users have access to multiple features of this platform.
- Auto DMs and Growth Engine (auto Likes, follows, unfollows, and comments)
- Scheduling Posts and Stories
- Engagement Groups
- Desktop Inbox
Let’s talk about each one by one.
AiGrow’s Growth Engine
AiGrow automates your Likes, comments, follows, unfollows and DMs.
You can also targeted your automated actions based on:
- follower of username
- list of usernames
For example, if you provide AiGrow with the hashtag #fitness, you will automatically engage with only users on Instagram using #fitness.
You can target up to 30 hashtags, 20 locations and 10 accounts.
You can even customize how quickly your account performs the actions and how many Likes, Follows, Unfollows, Comments, and DMs you want to perform on a daily basis.
As you begin engaging with your target audience, people will visit your profile in response, engage with your posts, and ultimately follow your page.
This way, you generate real followers who are actually interested in your page, unlike a bulk purchase service like Socialproof. When you use services like Socialproof, you get Likes and Views from random people and untargeted followers.
Note: AiGrow has safeguards put in place so that you never exceed Instagram’s daily limitations.
After setting up your targeting options, simply hit “Start Growth”. AiGrow will then run until you tell it to stop.
Even after you close your browser and turn your computer off, AiGrow will continue to run.
AiGrow’s Schedules your Posts and Stories
Instagram still doesn’t have an official way to upload and/or schedule your posts from your desktop.
Fortunately, AiGrow provides a completetly free desktop Instagram scheduler.
To access it, go to your AiGrow dashboard and click the tab called “Schedule Posts”.
From here, just write your caption, search and add the right hashtags, choose a date and time, select the accounts you want to upload to (you can upload the same post to multiple accounts), and finish by clicking “Schedule”.
As mentioned above, AiGrow even offers a hashtag research tool right inside the tool.
If you want to find the most popular hashtags related to your post, just search a keyword related to your post and AiGrow will display the most popular hashtags related to your keyword in descending order.
You can then easily add these hashtags to your post with one click.
AiGrow’s Engagement Groups
Engagement groups are groups of people on Instagram that agree to Like and comment on every post uploaded by another group member.
So if you are part of a Likes-only engagement group with 100 members, then when you upload a new post you will get 100 guaranteed Likes. This is on top of all of the Likes you get from Instagram users not in your engagement groups.
Whereas engagement groups outside of AiGrow are usually manual and require a fair amount work on your part, AiGrow’s engagement groups are completetly automated.
This means that all you need to do to get the Likes and comments from your engagement groups is upload your posts with AiGrow’s scheduler. That’s it!
Once your post goes live, all members in your engagement groups (you can be part of multiple groups at the same time) will automatically Like and comment on your post.
And because engagement groups are specific to the kind of Instagram page you have (photography, business, fitness, fashion, pets, etc.), all the engagement you get from your engagement groups come from real people in your Instagram community.
Joining engagement groups is as easy as finding the right group (you can search or scroll through the pages) and clicking “Join Group”.
AiGrow currently offers over 300 active, niche-based engagement groups catering to virtually any kind of Instagram account.
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 read, 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.
Maintenance and Support
Instagrowth has a “Troubleshoot – Errors – Help” which tries to describe all the issues that may come up.
But If you stumble upon any other problem, you can just send them a message via an Email because their chat is not available right now. They will reply as soon as possible.
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.
