Keeping with our series comparing Instagram automation tools from around the web, today we’re looking at Instaswift.
What is Instaswift? According to their website,
“Even though you upload great content you have a hard time getting other people’s attention and as a business, you lose money.
Our service helps you to become popular with a few clicks!”
We wanted to see what all the hype was about, so we put Instaswift to the test against our own Instagram growth solution, AiGrow .
Our comparison consisted of four categories:
- Connecting Instagram account
- Maintenance and Support
(For those short on time, skip to the end for a summary)
Instaswift vs AiGrow – a comparison of the two Instagram growth services.
Head to www.instaswift.com.
Currently, the “Bulk Follower” option is not available. To get started, choose either “Automated Likes”, “Manual Likes, “Automated Views” or “Manual Views”.
Choose the option that best fits your needs.
After providing this information along with your payment information, your part is done. According to Instaswift, you can expect your order to be “instantly delivered after payment”.
Get started within AiGrow three simple steps:
1) Go to https://app.aigrow.me , or search “AiGrow” in Google and choose the first result
2) When on the homepage, click “Free Trial” in the down right corner.
3) Provide your name, email, desired password, and click “Register Now”.
Congrats! You’ve just set up AiGrow.
As described above, connecting your Instagram account is as simple as providing your username when you make your purchase.
After logging into your AiGrow account, you will be brought to your dashboard.
Here you can see all of your connected Instagram accounts (you can add and grow multiple Instagram accounts at the same time). To add a new account, click “Add Instagram Account”.
From here, simply login to your Instagram account as you normally would on your phone.
AiGrow will ask you to provide a 6-digit verification code sent to your phone or email by Instagram.
AiGrow encrypts your password and will not share it with anyone or use it for anything not related to growing your followers.
Instaswift offers the following services:
- Automated Likes/Manual Likes
- Bulk Followers (unavailable at the time of writing this)
- Automated Views/Manual Views
Manual options require you to go and manually choose the posts that you would like to receive the Likes or Views. Automated options will automatically distribute your Likes and/or Views whenever you upload a new post.
Notification on Instaswift’s website.
Instead of simply providing your posts with Likes and/or Views, AiGrow uses your account And by providing a dedicated admin for your page automatically like, follow, unfollow, DM and comment on real channels with the intention of driving relevant and organic traffic back to your own channel (and ultimately converting that traffic to followers).
Some of the responsibilities of the admin page of Instagram:
- sharing Posts: An Instagram admin should regularly share posts related to the topic of the page he has. The number of posts shared and the frequency of posting depends on the topic of the page.
- Attempting to Raise follower: One of the major tasks of a Page Administrator is to collect followers in a variety of ways. These can include sharing attractive posts, advertising, or linking tio other page views.
- post Story: To better connect with audiences, an Instagram admin sometimes post story related to Page activity.
- Responding appropriately to audiences: It is one of the tasks of the admin page to keep in touch with the audience. He or she is obliged to constantly respond to the audience through comments or directives and to answer their questions, criticisms, and conversations.
- Producing Proper Content: The most important task of an Instagram admin is to be able to produce and publish content that is relevant to PaGE activity. Content should be professionally and user-friendly in terms of subjectivity, quality and fit between images and copyright.
- Page Performance Checking: The Instagram Admin should have a plan and a goal to improve the page and act on the plan and regularly review the page’s performance for the purpose it pursues and resolve any defects or obstacles.
This way, instead of buying new followers in bulk who don’t necessarily fit your target audience (which is especially important if you are a small business or brand), you’re gaining exactly the kind of new follower you want for your channel and you’re doing it almost as quickly as you would if you purchased them.
With AiGrow, you can target Instagram users based on:
- hashtags they use
- competitors they follow
- where they’re located
- custom lists of usernames
- whether or not they’re public or private
- whether or not you have already followed (and then unfollowed) in the past
In addition to the above features (which are all available in any AiGrow package), you can also select a category that you think best fits your channel. We’ll use this information to further refine your targeting.
You also don’t have to worry about engaging with irrelevant or risky channels as you have complete control over the types of users you interact with, and at no point will AiGrow perform any action from your Instagram account without your permission.
AiGrow also automatically unfollows any person you follow but who don’t follow you back within a certain amount of time. This helps keep your follower/following ratio proportional and natural-looking; something you don’t get when you immediately generate a large number of new followers or Likes with a tool like Instaswift.
To gain a better sense of the number of targeting options available for each of these features, have a peek at the short video below:
If you are buying automatic packages, the maintenance is super simple. Once you make the purchase, your part is done. All you have to do is wait for your Likes and Views to show up whenever you upload a new post.
If you are buying manual packages, you will have to go in every time you upload a new post and manually distribute your Likes and Views.
If you do experience any issues, Instaswift offers an extensive FAQ as well as a contact form that you can use to voice any issues, questions, or concerns you may have.
After adjusting your targeting options with your dedicated admin, don’t be worry about the restrictions imposed by Instagram because your page will be managed according to the standards on Instagram and no longer worry about losing your page.
If for any reason something stops you from growing, we will automatically notify you by email and offer possible solutions, as shown in the following example:
If you experience an issue, you can also find answers on our + 25+ FAQs page. We also offer free one-on-one appointments to help set up your account and are always available via email or chat.
Instaswift’s prices can be found below:
Instaswift doesn’t offer any free trial.
AiGrow offers a five-day free trial offering absolutely full functionality with no limit for the number of followers you can receive.
Below is AiGrow’s starter price package for consideration after your five-day free trial:
While Instaswift may give you an instant boost in the number of Likes or Views your posts receive, this does little to help grow your followers. Even if you choose their bulk followers option (which isn’t currently available), according to Instaswift you are buying inactive followers who will not engage with your content whatsoever.
Having a large number of unengaged followers is arguably worse than having a smaller number of engaged followers. A large number of followers with little to no engagement on any of your posts is an obvious indicator to observers (sponsors, for example) that your followers are fake.
This is why using an automation tool like AiGrow makes more sense for longer-term growth. While you don’t get the immediate surge in followers, you do grow your followers (real, engaged followers) at a much faster, longer-lasting rate than if you were to grow your Instagram natural. You also get access to far more features and targeting options; all for a more affordable price.
