Try Jarvee for your social media scheduling needs

Automation was the thing that would grow your account fast, and the tool at the time for every Instagram user from novice to pro was Instagress. Since then we’ve seen Instagress alternatives come and go.

However, there have been one or two that have remained and some other new ones that have also come to the party.

But before we go any further, you may be asking, “Do I really need to automate my Instagram anymore since all the new Instagram updates, especially IG TV?” The big question is this: does automation even work as it used to?

Here’s the thing. As we all experience with our smartphones, software always needs to be updated and Instagram is no different. Their platform is regularly updated and for any marketing tool to remain in the game it will have to be updated too.

With automation and Instagram in 2018, the question isn’t which tool to use but which tools actually works. To give you the winning edge in automating your Instagram activities — from increasing your followers to maximizing your outreach with direct messaging.

So here are some Instagress alternatives that keep on top of their Instagram updates. Like I said before, automation is entirely up to you at the end of day, but my favourite tools of the bunch for effectiveness and ease of use would be Jarvee,, Social Captain, and Instazood.

You can grow accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin and more.

This is a excellent time saver as you can managed all your social channels in one place. Jarvee does claim “you can reach over 100,000 new Instagram users each month”. This is a big claim, however if you ever heard of Massplanner or Followliker, I would consider you take a look at Jarvee as it can go neck to neck with these Instagram tools.

Combin is an Instagram growth tool with powerful search functionality. The user may perform searches by locations, hashtags, and by a combination of the activities. Combin states this is the best way of finding the most relevant posts and accounts for users. Combin also saves time by automating actions, such as refreshing search results, as well organizing followers, likes and comments for your convenience with its filtering and sorting abilities.

The great feature of Combin is that it has got a limit function that runs in line with Instagram likes and following limits. This take the strain away of worrying about being like blocked or receiving a temporary ban.

It has a great clean UI (User Interface), making it easy to use for virtually anyone. At the moment, it doesn’t support a lot of the features that some of the other automated solutions do, however.

If you’re looking for an easy to use tool for Instagram, Combin could be the answer. Combin is available for Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems.
