Luckily, the world of online marketing management is very competitive, and that means there are always alternatives available if one of the services you use gets shut down. If you’ve been in the game for a while and are familiar with how this world operates, then you’re probably comfortable with jumping around from service to service and finding alternatives if your first choice is no longer an option.
In this review we will go over some of the alternatives to Boostfy so that you can choose one to get your social media management back on track.
Follow Adder has been around for a long time and has a good reputation in the community. You should be aware, however, that Follow Adder uses a similar automated follower platform that was responsible for Boostfy getting shut down, so use it at your own risk.
With that being said, Follow Adder also has some additional features which you may find useful, such as the ability to manage multiple Instagram accounts from one place, scheduling posts and comments automatically, and even automated direct messaging to help you manage your engagement with your community in a hands-off way.

Risesocial is an Instagram growth service which provides you with software to help you manage and grow your online presence. They offer the opportunity to connect with a personal account manager who will work with you to achieve your marketing goals. Read my review of RiseSocial here.
RiseSocial is definitely growing to be a big player on the scene, and one of the advantages they offer is that their prices are better than some of the other competitors on the market. They’re upfront about what the different subscription packages will cost. They also seem to be open to feedback and they’re transparent when it comes to their customer experience, with reviews from real customers with links to Instagram profiles, which should confirm the legitimacy of the reviews. They also offer a telephone support line which is definitely not the case for most of their competitors.
Likesocial is one of the more straightforward offerings on the market. One of its advantages compared to the typical automated Instagram management service is that its not typically in violation of Instagram’s Terms of Service. This is because LikeSocial offers a service in which you pay directly for likes and followers, so even though you are not getting engagement organically, you are not dealing with bots and other techniques that might trigger an investigation from Instagram.
Unlike other similar services, LikeSocial offers a lifetime guarantee, which goes a long way in assuring the quality of the service. Their service detects new posts such as photos and videos automatically, and then immediately gives you likes on those posts as well as Instagram followers.
LikeSocial is a good choice if you are hoping to get a quick boost to your Instagram popularity, and you want to get it in a way that has no chance of compromising the integrity of your account. Their pricing models are also straightforward, and depending on your requirements, may be more affordable than some of the alternatives such as Stellation Media.
Jarvee is another automated social media management tool similar to Boostfy, although it has many features and advantages which Boostfy did not have. It is definitely more than just a botting service; it actually does a lot of the work of running a social media account for you, something which by all accounts it does pretty well.
One of the perks of Jarvee is that it’s not exclusively designed for Instagram only. If you have Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr, or Youtube accounts, Jarvee will be even more useful to you.
The software itself runs on Windows machines, and can be set up to constantly run in the background and manage your accounts in a completely hands-off fashion. Furthermore, if you want to give it a try, they offer a free five-day trial which will let you see some of the benefits and features in action before committing to a purchase.
The pricing can be a little steep, largely due to the fact that you’re paying for the potential to manage all of your social media accounts in one place. So you should decide whether or not this extra value will be worthwhile to you and if your other social media accounts besides Instagram are valuable enough to invest in.
Another aspect of Jarvee that may appeal to some users, but not to others, is the amount of settings that can be toyed with. While this is great for savvy users with clear goals for growth and engagement who want to fine tune their social media presence, these settings can also be intimidating if you’re looking for a more straightforward service that doesn’t require much planning up front.
