Review – Using SocialCaptain to Grow Your Instagram Following

By Jack Stan

June 2019 SocialCaptain Review Update: It seems that this app has been in trouble for some time now. We have received several complaints from the users - until all the problems are clear and the existing users have been compensated accordingly, I'm afraid I can no longer recommend SocialCaptain to you.

SocialCaptain No Response Complaints

Therefore please ignore my review written back in November 2018 below for now ---

I am here today to give you a review of SocialCaptain, an Instagram growth service that uses artificial intelligence technology to work 24/7 and duplicate human interactions in order to attract new followers and engagement to your account.

I’ve tried everything. I’ve had some accounts disabled, some experienced no growth whatsoever, and I’ve ruined some accounts because of the spam actions the software created. So, when I saw another option hit the market I was a bit skeptical.

SocialCaptain Review

The one thing that really stood out to me as a unique feature when looking into SocialCaptain was that it uses AI and something it calls SmartGrowth to improve its overall performance and results with each action it performs. Imagine an Instagram growth service that uses machine learning to continue to improve your results over time?

Well I took advantage of SocialCaptain’s free trial offer and dove into the settings and after the trail was over I continued to use it, and still do, to this day. Let’s jump right into this review.

My results: 3-day trial period

So, just to let you know why I kept this service after the trail: I saw results. It’s one thing just to see an increase in followers, but when you see them starting to like your posts and leave comments you know that you are attracting the right kind of followers.

I would suggest that during your trial you post a bit more often so you can really see whether or not your new followers are enjoying your content. Don’t go just based on the numbers, because remember, this software gets smarter over time. Instead, look for comments that are genuine and directly related to the content you are posting.

Why I went with the $99/month plan

There are three plans you can pick from once your free trial is over. There is a very affordable $39 a month option (or $15 a week if you don’t want to do a full month) and then the most aggressive option, which is $99 a month. Both will help you grow your Instagram account, but the larger plan delivers engagement and AI at a much faster speed than the rate of the smaller plan. I saw great results so I wanted them to not only continue but continue at a much faster rate.

SocialCaptain Pricing

You can actually watch the results pour in thanks to the dashboard of SocialCaptain, which allows you to see everything happen in real-time. The data you can access in the analytics section is valuable and lets you know, without a doubt, that this tool is delivering great results.

The engagement really does appear to be manually done.

If you are going to allow a piece of software interact with Instagram accounts, you want to be certain that it’s not going to come off as spammy. I see comments sometimes and they are all emojis or they are something totally generic like, “Wow! Great post!” These have spam written all over them. Nobody wants to engage with an account dropping comments like that. Thanks to the AI, SocialCaptain only engages in ways that appear to be human. Nobody will ever know you are using a tool. They will think you are doing everything manually.

AI is hard to beat and SocialCaptain is the technology leader.

If you read any tech blog or business website you will see AI news headlines dominating. The technology is leading the wave of new innovations and everyday uses. I didn’t think we would see it implemented in social media marketing this soon, but the team at SocialCaptain wanted to be the leaders, and what they have been able to create using AI is impressive to say the least.

Why targeted followers are so important.

I would rather have 2,000 followers that were interested in my content and will like and comment on my posts than 250,000 followers that will never interact. Your engagement rates play a huge role in getting posts on the explore page and showing in the feeds of your followers, so it’s nice that SocialCaptain focuses on attracting targeted followers.

Final Thoughts

If you can’t tell by now, I really like this tool. SocialCaptain has been part of my personal Instagram growth for a few months now. I spend $99/month like everyone else simply because it works.

Social Captain

Instagram is the number one social media network now, and brands and influencers alike are putting a heavy weight on having a large and responsive audience on the platform. Long gone are the days of buying fake Instagram followers and fake Instagram likes. Your audience can spot that so quickly and it’s the fastest way to totally de-value your business or personal brand.

Take my advice and give SocialCaptain’s free trial offer a try. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, you should head over there now and register an account. Within a few minutes you can have a campaign running and your account will start to grow in no time.

  1. Thank you for this blog.
    SocialCaptain is a great software for automizing Instagram, especially for marketers like me.

    1. Okay, what makes you think that? It’ll be useful if you can tell us more about it, as everyone’s complaining about this app.

  2. Thank you so much for your honest advice and review of this company. Do you have anything else you could suggest?

    1. Hi Andrea, thanks for your comment. I’ve been advised by several Instagram users that Follower Monkey is pretty good. It can “unfollow” users who are not following you back for free. But all other services such as finding new users and get them to follow you will cost $9.95 per month per account. If you haven’t used it, perhaps you can give it a try.

  3. Hi, I cannot see how old is the dialogue, but it seems that SocialCaptain is running into simulation mode, no real actions and no help desk response. Scam at the moment. Can you recommend anything else?

    1. Hi Elyssa, it seems like it and it’s a shame… I hear some people say FollowerMonkey is good/ok, but not sure of the sustainability. Thanks for your comment.

  4. This is a HUGE FRAUD !!!!! They promess your account will not be block by instagram but this is not true… During the free trail your account will grow at an impresive rate to push you to buy the service, then after 2 more weeks, your account won’t grow any more and instagram will start to block your account, first for 24 hours and then for a week… When I try to contact the help center, no one ever answer… this is just a big scam, dont’ buy it.

    1. Hi Jean-Damien, sorry to hear about your experience. Instagram blocks your account easily whenever it detects access by a third-party app at an aggressive pace, so they should never have promised anything like that! Not responding to your message is really bad. I hope you got your money back by disputing against your card account. Thanks for your comment!

  5. just letting you know their customer service very sucks.
    if you are going to talk about refund or troubleshooting with them
    I guarantee you you will never be satisfied.
    honestly don’t spend any penny on them. you will be 99% disappointed.

    1. Hi, thanks for letting us know. It’s a shame because they did give us a great service in the beginning. I see definitely no longer the case.

  6. I paid for a subscription, within the first day, Instagram gave me a warning that my account would be deactivated if I didn’t stop the service.

    Contacted support for a refund, but even after a few reminders they are not available for a simple response.

    Do not use this service if you want to keep your account, Instagram apparently can detect it and it’s against their TOS.


    1. Hi Michael, thanks for the info. Instagram regularly cracks down on fake followers and it can detect third-party apps (i.e. unusual activities operated from different IP addresses). Many apps change their terms of service accordingly. But it doesn’t sound good that the Social Captain hasn’t responded to you – perhaps the only option for you is to dispute against your card company or PayPal?


  7. Hi, it seems like a good app but it is quite pricey. I am not so sure if I should try because I gained 44k followers in the last 12 months maybe I don’t need to rely on apps like this one. Because it might be banned by Instagram in the future.

  8. Hi this is the best social follower app that I’ve ever used.
    Some people have 10k-100k followers but each post only has 100 likes. Most of their followers are likely to be fake.
    If you want real human followers who are responsive on Instagram I recommend it.

  9. Hi Jack, I find Social Captain extremely useful. I used to use Follower-Monkey and it was great until I realized most of the followers were bots. I had 20k+ followers and only had less than 100 likes on each post. With Social Captain, I’m gaining real followers constantly, now I receive at least a few hundreds, close to 1000 sometimes. I’m very happy.

    1. Hey Premia, that is awesome! Great to know that SocialCaptain is working for you. Thanks for letting me know!

  10. I used to be a Combin user, but got tired of having to set up proxies and having my computer open 24/7. SocialCaptain is easy to use and gets great results.

    1. Hey Joseph, thanks for your info! Never heard of Combin myself but it doesn’t sound like the world’s best Instagram tool. Glad to hear you are happy with Social Captain. I wish you all the best!

  11. I use Follower Monkey and I think it’s pretty good. I gain about 100 followers every few days. It costs about $48 per 6 months so it’s much more economical. SocialCaptain I just had a look at it, and it may be quicker to gain followers but paying over $1000 a year is a little too much. I guess the question is if you can make money from it. I’ll think about it. Thanks!

    1. Hi Ivan, I’ve used Follower Monkey in the past too, and found it useful. I received a good number of followers and comments, and it has a great control too. Thanks for your comment!

    2. Hey, good info. I’ve had a trouble with Follower Monkey a few times before. It basically wasn’t doing a great job, but the support was abrupt. I had to solve the problem myself in the end (uninstaling/reinstaling/testing). SocialCaptain may be costly but the support is great and you’ll get better results. Try it for free.

  12. I’ve used SocialCaptain for a week, and have been super pleased with the results. It’s the best Instagram growth tool I’ve come across so far.

    1. Hi Simone, thank you for your comment, I’m glad to hear that you’ve seen great results with SocialCaptain. Good luck with continued success!

  13. Hello Stan it looks like a good tool and I was just thinking I needed something like this. I used numerous Instagram followers tools and paid so much money but soon I realized they were collecting bot followers or inactive accounts and I never received reactions. Plus I can only follow up to 7500 people so it’s impossible to manually make my Instagram account known. I know I need to improve my photo quality as well but I need to have thousands of followers not hundreds who give me comments constantly. Thank you I will try this tool when I have more money next time and I will like to let you know the results.

    1. Hi Kia! Yeah that happens with other auto-follow/unfollow tools. They randomly pick users and many of them happen to be spammy ones ie robots. Good to hear that you’re going to try Social Captain. Wishing you good luck!
