Not interested in the details and just want to know which platform is better? Click here.
Socialproof is a service you can use to buy Likes, Views, and Followers on a bulk or rolling basis.
That means you can buy your Likes, Views and Followers all at once, or you can choose to have them automatically added over a period of time.
Socialproof is right in our neighborhood of Instagram marketing, so we dedided to put it to the test it against our own Instagram growth engine.
Here are the 5 categories we will be looking at:
- Connecting Instagram account(s)
- Maintenance and Support
Let’s jump into it!
Setup – Socialproof vs. AiGrow
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. Congrats, You’re done!
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.
Signing up for Socialproof is a little confusing.
To sign up, you need to either click on the specific service you want at the top of the homepage, or click on the “Admin Panel” at the upper right corner.
After that, you’re brought to a screen asking you for your email, username and desired password.
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.
Due to the fact that your account doesn’t need to do anything to receive the Likes, Views and Followers, you don’t need to provide your IG password. You just need to provide your username.
AiGrow offers users the following features:
- Auto DMs and Growth Engine (auto Likes, follows, unfollows, and comments)
- Desktop Inbox
- Scheduling Posts and Stories
- Engagement Groups
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.
Socialproof can delivers Likes, Followers, and Views on an instant or rolling basis.
It also offers some free services as described below.
Socialproof can show you your Instagram statistics for free.
Enter your IG username and the platform will analyze your account and report back with your engagement rate and follower growth rate (shown as a table).
You can also get free Likes with Socialproof.
After creating an account, you can then join an exchange network where you earn coins by Liking other people’s posts.
You can then exchange your coins for Likes on your posts.
Socialproof’s paid services are very straightforward.
You just have to select the package you want (Likes, Views, and/or Followers), and whether or not you want your Likes, Views and/or Followers immediately or over a period of time (called “Automatic Services”).
There is also a separate paid service called “Influencer Marketing Service”.
According to Socialproof,
“We outreach and use niche related fan pages where placement of your brand link and content is used to attract engaged users.
We engage with users targeted by hashtags relevant to your page to funnel users to your Instagram page.”
Specifically, here’s what you get with Socialproof’s Influencer Marketing Service:
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.
Socialproof has a FAQ section, as well as a Socialproof Blog.
You can also get in touch with them via a chatbot in the bottom right corner of their site.
AiGrow provides you with a five-day free trial offering absolutely full functionality with no limit for the number of followers, likes, or views you can receive.
Below you can see AiGrow’s starter price package when your five-day free trial ends:
Socialproof has multiple options for pricing.
Instagram Auto Likes
Page wouldn’t load at time of publishing (to be updated).
Instagram Auto Views
Page with pricing information wouldn’t load at time of publishing (to be updated).
While you can separately buy bulk Likes, Views and Followers, you can also choose to buy all of them together.
If you choose this second option, here are the packages you can choose from:
Socialproof is a great platform for delivering bulk Likes, Views and Followers either instantaneously or over a period of time. If you are willing to put the work in, you can also use Socialproof’s Like exchange platform to get free Likes on your posts.
Socialproof also has the advantage of being able to generate YouTube views.
They also offer an outreach service to generate real followers for your Instagram page, but it’s overly pricy.
However, AiGrow’s growth engine is a longer-term, more-affordable growth solution you can use to organically get more followers for Instagram page and more engagement for your Instagram posts.
AiGrow also has the benefit of generating real followers who are actually interested in you. When you purchase bulk followers from a service like Socialproof, you are getting random, lower-quality, and in some cases fake followers who don’t care about you at all.
Plus, in addition to AiGrow’s growth engine, you also get access to 300+ Automated Engagement Pods, a desktop post and Story scheduler, and a desktop DM inbox.
