Note: if you’re not interested in the details and just want to know which tool is better for getting Likes, click here.
In continuing our series looking at Instagram tools from around the web, today we turn to Stim Social.
According to their website:
We target and follow user profiles on Instagram and like their posts according to specific criteria that you set (the system also targets only the most active people who make comments and like posts – the kind of followers you want). A certain percentage will appreciate your content and follow you back.
Gaining Likes and followers is in our realm of Instagram marketing, so we decided to put Stim Social to the test against our own platform, AiGrow.
- Connecting Instagram account(s)
- Maintenance and Support
Let’s take a look.
In order to start with AiGrow, follow these steps:
2) Enter your name, email and a password. Note that your email does not need to be your IG email.
For Stim Social, you also need an email and password. Go to stimsocial.com and click on “5-Day Free Trial”.
Then, enter your name, email and a password. The phone number is not necessary. After setup, Stim Social asks for your IG username and password.
Connecting Instagram account(s)
Using AiGrow, you can add as many IG accounts as you want. Just go to your AiGrow dashboard and click on the “Add Instagram Account” button. Then enter your IG username and password. For some cases, you might need to enter a code which is sent to your phone by Instagram.
You will see your IG accounts which are connected to your AiGrow account on your dashboard. You can manage each of them by clicking on the “Manage Account” button.
After setup, Stim Social asks for your IG username and password. While connecting your IG account with Stim Social, you should not go to your IG app or Instagram web. This may end up in a banned IG account.
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 Instagram users based on:
- Influencer account
- Lists of usernames
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.
AiGrow also gives you the chance to join over 300 engagement groups FOR FREE which you can use to get more likes and comments on every new post you share on Instagram. Engagement groups are groups of people who commit to interacting through likes and comments with every post shared by a group member.
With AiGrow, there are two easy steps to get engagement (likes and comments) from your engagement groups:
- 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.
- Use AiGrow’s scheduler (post schedule feature) to post on Instagram.
Schedule your posts
To use AiGrow’s scheduler, simply go to your dashboard on AiGrow and click on “Schedule Posts” tab, drag and drop your post onto the pop-up box (or you can simply upload from your pc), write your caption, add your hashtags, set the date and time and click “Schedule”.
When your post is on Instagram, all the group members will automatically like and/or comment on your new post.
Since the process is 100% organic, all groups are guaranteed to be leechers free, so you can be sure that all your efforts are not wasted.
Features available for AiGrow users:
- Automated likes, comments, follows, unfollows, and DMs
