AiGrow can help you with hashtags
When you want to search for a hashtag on AiGrow, the platform offers some other relevant hashtags. You can see the number of the use of those hashtags on Instagram. This number can be used as a factor to whether use or not use the hashtag. If the hashtag has been used too much, it is not logical to use it. On the other hand, if the hashtag hasn’t been used very much, the hashtag may not be that popular and it’s better not to use it.
You can publish a post into several IG accounts
Firstly, you should know that you can add multiple accounts to your AiGrow. In the time of scheduling posts, you can add other accounts to publish your posts. You just need to put a checkmark on other accounts.
Schedule your Instagram Stories with AiGrow
This is an amazing capability of the platform which little platforms have. You can Schedule Stories too. You just need to upload your Image or video and add a URL if you want. Then, set a time and date and AiGrow will publish that Story.
You can repost using AiGrow
AiGrow has another option for reposting posts from other accounts. Click on the “Repost” button on your AiGrow. You will be asked to choose a source for reposting: Hashtags, Location, URL, and Username. You can choose any of these options, search for the post and then schedule your repost.
What are the Engagement Pods and Growth Engine?
Besides scheduling, Aigrow offers multiple choices for helping you grow your IG account. Engagement Pods and Growth Engine are two of these options. Automated Engagement Pods can help you grow your engagement rate. You just need to join in any pod you want and as soon as you post, other members of the pod will automatically like your posts.
Growth Engine is also a great option for those who want to grow organically. You have probably heard of the Like for Like strategy. You like and follow some accounts and they will like and follow you back. This will lead to a better engagement rate and better connection with other accounts. Growth Engine does all these things automatically.
