For a long time now, one of the best ways to grow your Instagram has been through companies like Instanobel.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Many bots and growth services are no longer working correctly. Services like this one may have shutdown or received some negative reviews recently that weren't around when we wrote this article. We can't be held responsible for this service.
You can outsource your engagement and pay a lot less than if you were doing it through Instagram. However, more and more, it appears that these companies aren’t working too well. They also have negative reviews that keep piling up online. Let’s take a look at Instanobel.
Is It a Scam?
When you outsource your Instagram engagement, there’s always the risk that you end up committing to a company that just wants to sell you fake engagement.
It’s more common than you think, and it’s getting worse. There is, of course, a chance that Instanobel sells their customer’s fake engagement, which is not going to do too much for your Instagram profile, especially if you plan on staying in the game for a while.
Fake engagement is when companies sell you Instagram accounts that are either inactive or bots, so not only are they not going to interact with your content, but they’re going to drop off after a while.
What is Instanobel?
So, what is Instanobel? They actually claim to be a bot service that can ‘organically’ grow your Instagram account. They do this through paying software developers who have created bots for Instagram to put their brand on this software, so at the end of the day, you have automation interacting with your audience.
While this isn’t the worst way to go about your engagement (fake followers is), it’s definitely not the best either. You do run the risk of looking spammy. One thing that is considered a positive is that you don’t have to download anything with Instanobel, which means you don’t put your computer at risk of developing a virus.
Getting Started with Instanobel
It appears that Instanobel’s login is encrypted, which means that it’s safe to share your information with them. Once you’ve gone through the sign-up process, you can easily connect them to your Instagram account.
They’ll ask you to confirm your credentials through an email that they send, and Instagram will send you a verification code through text. The dashboard is pretty simple, so you’re not going to have any trouble there. You set all the features yourself so its customized to you and your niche.
Pros and Cons
Top Tools for Instagram Growth & Engagement
So, what exactly is it going to cost you to try out Instanobel? Well, they have quite a few different plans based on their different services.
The lowest price you’ll pay with them is just $14 a month, which we think is pretty cheap. Cheap can also mean low quality, though, so watch out for this. The middle of the range is going to cost you $19 a month, while their most expensive price point is $61 a month. They also have a free three-day trial, so you can check out how their features work with your Instagram before you commit to anything.
Do I Need to Give Them My Password?
You will need to give them your password, yes. This is because they are an automated growth service, and they need to have access to your Instagram account to represent you online.
In fact, this is a good way to determine whether they sell fake engagement or not. If they didn’t require your password, then their services would be fake, so it’s actually a good thing.
Can They Steal My Password?
The risk of them stealing your password is incredibly low. However, if you are feeling uneasy about it, you can always change it.
Can They Steal My Account?
No. This is because it’s totally pointless for an automated bot like Instanobel to steal your account. They are way too focused on growing their own business and services and getting more and more clients to use it.
If they wanted to do well themselves on Instagram, they could just create their own page and use their own bot to grow it. There is no incentive to steal your account, so again the chances are next to nothing.
Can I get Shadowbanned?
You can’t be shadowbanned by using a bot service. This is because being shadowbanned actually has a lot more to do with the way you use your hashtags.
If you are using hashtags in a way that is spammy, or you’re using hashtags that Instagram thinks are inappropriate or have been banned, then they could shadowban you.
This means that they’ll limit the reach of your content so that only existing followers will be able to see it. While it sucks, it has nothing to do with any third party you might be using.
Are Their Results Guaranteed?
At the end of the day, nobody out there can guarantee the results of their services. This is because companies like Instanobel are simply not in control of external factors.
The old saying is you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. The same goes for this company – they can find people who may want to look at your content, but they can’t make them like it or follow you. This means that they may find people who love your stuff and want to stay, or they may find people who want to pass. Either way, there are no guarantees.
From where we’re sitting, it appears that Instanobel is just another generic bot company. Brands like this are becoming less and less effective when it comes to implementing their bot services with Instagram users, which means that you’ve got a pretty low chance of getting your money’s worth if you sign up for them.
Plus, if you go online and look around at some forums, you may find that they have some pretty negative reviews. We don’t think they’re worth it at this point.
