Essential Instagram growth tools
Want to increase your engagement on Instagram? Other than great content, there are a handful of tools we love that either support your account growth, or just help to increase engagement on existing posts and stories.
Hashtags for Likes
Hashtags are one of the best tools to get views from accounts that don’t follow you. This service finds custom hashtag lists that are worth the investment, and helps personalise them to ensure you get maximum reach (and follows) on each post. You can find out which hashtags are bringing you followers. They have a 14 day moneyback guarantee, which you can try here.
There are lots of scheduling tools and apps out there but we like Tailwind since you can also connect a Pinterest account, and it’s the best one on the market. Tailwind’s Instagram tool lets you schedule photos and videos, gives you 1 click hashtag suggestions and has a SmartSchedule to post when your audience is most engaged. You can get one month free (no credit card required!) here.
If you don’t want to go full automation, this tool is a great choice. With auto like functionalities, it grows your account slowly and can avoid blocks on your account. Kicksta is a cheaper (albeit not as well-rounded) alternative to Ingramer and competitors in that niche. Try it out here.
