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.

  1. We have used Stim Social successfully for 3 years, on their Pro-Account. It was brilliant, the service great and I used to recommend to others a lot. In the last 3 months, this has all changed. The customer service, although responsive, take no responsibility for the issues that are inherent now that Instagram have updated their software. If you have a problem with their service, they mostly try and up-sell you to their Managed Plan, which I don’t appreciate as a solution for our Pro-Account not working.

    For the last 3 months, our account has been continually blocked by APIs, and just this week Instagram have sent us a FINAL WARNING alert to stop using their service. I took this to Stim, and they said that Instagram are wrong and what Stim are doing is fine. Whatever Stim’s assessment, it is Instagram that are making the judgement call. Stim said “just re-log in in a couple of days and it will be fine” [sic]. I don’t have that confidence, and Stim have taken no responsibility for offering alternative solutions, or an apology. We have asked for a refund for our account not working for 3 months, which they have refused, instead offering us a free trial of their Managed Plan (what a surprise).

    Stay away from this service. For 3 years they were fantastic, but they pose too high a risk now and accept zero responsibility for their issues.
