When they work it's good but when something goes wrong - not quick to fix or take responsibility.

Very sketchy company from the beginning. We purchased their Instagram Growth Engine product. Their ads and website claim your page/business will have a dedicated Account Manager that works on your page daily. Direct quote from their site:
Growth Experts: Each day account managers perform many tasks in order to organically grow your audience. All you have to do is continue to provide great content. We will do the rest.
Upon signing on for their 'service' we received an emails stating they had 24/7 service. This is not true.
None of this is remotely true. They did absolutely nothing for our page. We had to reach out to them multiple times due to zero activity on our page since we purchased their service on September 30th. Each time we contacted them via email, we got an email from "Will" stating he was locked out of our page for 24 hours and you will now see activity moving forward. It NEVER happened. Furthermore, why do we have to reach out? Why doesn't our 'account manager' know nothing is happening? Could it be because they aren't doing anything?? After each email, Instagram warned us (each time!) that someone was trying to log into our account from Los Angeles on a Samsung device and other times from Australia! It was clear they were doing nothing and suddenly logged into our account after we had to contact them.
NOTE: there are three cartoon guy faces on their support chat that never answer... but the site says they have offices in the U.S., U.K. and Australia. Our solid guess: this company is three young guys who think they are social media experts trying to create a business living in different countries. But they deliver NOTHING. These types of businesses are being encouraged on Youtube and all over social media and it looks like we ran into one with Social Growth Engine.
Please save yourself the grief, do not fall for their catchy Instagram ads. They did NOTHING for us and then disappeared. They were dishonest with us from the day we signed up. And, as is the case with many dishonest or lost people, they hid from us; disappeared.
We are in contact with our bank now. AVOID this company, there is evidence it is a scam for many people.

I signed up two months ago with very low expectations honestly (I've been scammed more than once by other service providers in the industry). However, the results with this specific company have been great and also the support. I like that I can reach out anytime over live chat and receive notifications later if I need to leave, that's very helpful. I think that the most important thing is to understand what you are buying. I recently had some questions about my Like Exchange which I discussed with Adam. He helped me understand the product and how it works. I am very satisfied by the quality of likes and followers I am receiving.
One of my previous companies SocialSteeze was providing likes from fake accounts and followers unrelated to my industry.
With Social Growth I get targeted results and I am actually building an audience.
I recently signed for the affiliate program as well, I am recommending this to everyone so I want to take the best out of my effort too. Thanks guys for your great products.

Customer service is not part of this business model. Not only did the follower count drop immediately after start, upon request of cancellation, they pass you around for months until they acknowledge the cancellation. They then refund you one month but charge you the rest.
I cancelled in july, got charges through October and was refunded one month.
Stay away from them.

I tried another company before finding Social Growth Engine. They were bringing me a lot of new followers but I soon realized they were fake ones. That killed my account and got me shadowbanned. :(
I am so glad I found the SGE ghost removal service. Thanks to it I am back in the game and increasing my engagement daily. Highly recommended.

So where do I begin, I started with social Growth Engine back in January 2019 and it worked amazing I gained a lot of traction to my business page. Everything was working great, website clicks direct messages etc our business was on the right growing path. UPDATE TO NOW August 2019, since the new Instagram algorithm all hell broke loose. My page was blocked 5 times, they told me the service had to be put on pause and updated but I was still paying my monthly payments, $58 a month they told me they will credit my account for 2 months of which the service was not working that was June and July it is now August with no true update and no credit. I read the other reviews and realize the whole “credit” is nothing but a lie to say. My account was blocked 7 days ago they told me everything will be adjusted so this does not happen again.. this morning I tried to post and the account is blocked, AGAIN. This has been very frustrating to say the least speaking with the agents via the chat box. This is my business page and I really can’t afford to get permanently blocked from Instagram because of social Growth Engine. For the new accounts that’s using this service it seems to work great for old accounts like mine we need to find something new that will work with Instagram updated algorithm because socialgrowthengine.com is no longer it. I’m now loosing followers instead of gaining. My advice find another robot company or hire a virtual assistant which is the route my business is looking into because socialgrowthengine can no longer do anything with the strict rules given out by Instagram. When I started in January I got the best customer service, once the update came and accounts stopped working I couldn’t get anyone to respond to my messages for days. I totally understand them getting overwhelmed with questions but when my turn comes and I explain what’s going on and im being nice and cordial to inquire what’s the new update and the rep says “is there something I can help you with we already know accounts got blocked” is a red flag I no longer need to spend money with you.

My mom is an amazing makeup artist (really!) but like many oldies she sucks at social media lol. This Summer she put me in charge of her FB page but after a couple days I left that and moved to Instagram. I discovered these guys right after and decided to sign up for their growth package. I started with zero followers and zero experience. From then and until today we are growing at a good pace and also getting real customers. It's unreal, love you guys!

Salut! In my opinion there are way more pros than cons, hence the rating. The price is competitive and there are many channels supported. I like that. I am happy with all of my services, but LinkedIn has been especially helpful. It costs $49 and the ROI is insane.
To management: Thanks for your work. I just wish the website had a French version, you would sell more! Same for customer service. Thanks!

After 6 weeks I have increased my followers by more than 1k. With so many changes at instagram I was reluctant to try a growth service but it has done what I expected. I can travel while keeping great part of my SMM in autopilot. Great experience so far... The only thing is I wish they had bundles for Instagram and Twitter.

This is not a service! It's a joke!
I signed up and within a day my Instagram account was compromised, I sent emails to customer support asking what has happened and why?
Then I got this from Social Growth Engine...
This message has been sent to accounts performing more than the average amount of activity, however no accounts have been disabled, or shadow banned and this message has only been displayed to about 1% of our client accounts (1 in 100 received this message). Just as a precaution update your password incase any other platform is connected to your account, then submit the new one vie our secure link.
5 minutes later I was ACTION BLOCKED BY INSTAGRAM!
I ended up sending social growth my new password as this is what they requested and 4 days later after Instagram removed the block.
I WAS BLOCKED AGAIN within 10 minutes of having access because of SOCIAL GROWTH ENGINES SPAM!
This is what I received from Social Growth Engine the 2nd time I was blocked..
Apologies for the delay, this has just been due to so many changes within Instagram's guidelines, we're getting better now and have found the perfect fit, we have applied this to accounts now with great effect, if you'd like to continue we will apply an extension on your account.
This is on their website which is a bunch of rubbish!
Safe to Use: Our experts use local elite proxies, giving us safe access to your account, we also use Instagram's API to login, removing the risk of account bans or shadow bans.
In total I was out of action on my Instagram account for 8 days, I've lost potential followers, was unable to like or post!
I have requested a full refund and they still wont answer me!
DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE! DISGUSTING!

Excellent, I normally don't do reviews but these guys have been great especially Mike who went above and beyond to guide me through setting up my account on LInkedIn and Instagram, we are seeing real results (Finally) my only complaint was the lack of reporting but then they told me to use igblade.com which gives me a clear indication of activity.

I run a digital marketing agency in Argentina, serving customers from several countries. We mainly do ads, SEO, landing pages, etc. I recently started offering Instagram/LinkedIn Growth to my clients. Social Growth Engine has been our service provider with great results. I appreciate these guys, Ryan has taken care of my clients as if they were his. Greetings, Jared :)

Social growth engine just another spamming company
Missing engagement and keep charging after canceling service had to dispute with bank login in and out to ur account following unfollowing accounts for a few days then stop doing anything and giving excuses bout ig changes. If u give an honest criticism review they dispute and saying that wasn’t their company

Steady Growth & Engagement. I signed up for real growth from accounts that actually engage my business page, and so far thats what I have received. I have carefully monitored the new followers and majority are my required audience.

This company is the real deal. As a UK customer I am happy they have support during my work time and even on weekends. The guys are polite and knowledgeable, and of course the product is great. Looking forward to more growth engines guys.(if you release YouTube or Quora I will be the first buyer!) 🙏

I am a fan !! Started with Social Growth Engine around 4 months ago and although the dip in results on Instagram during their outages everything else has been fantastic. My LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram have all been improving and in their right ways, LinkedIn is producing leads, Instagram engagement resulting in clicks to website, and well twitter my fan base is building well.

Awesome, great team and really helped my profile gain from 2.8k to 14.5k in 3 months with lots of engagement (seriously takes me a few hours to get through the DM's from wholesalers looking at our company)

If you are a serious marketer, Social Growth is a tool to consider. I've tried many apps, online services, agencies, but I felt more comfortable with them and results were better too. I like their customer service, they are responsive and nice, even when I have questions related to other stuff like strategy or content. They are very safe, on my experience...Zero issues so far (unlike other services where I needed to change my password daily). Honestly the price is also a BIG plus. Low-price follower growth services are in average $30 per week, and SGE charges something close to this by the month. Having been in the industry for many years I am happy to see a service that actually works and that has a good history.

LinkedIn is our main lead generator, but managing it is very time-consuming. As the CEO, I have decided to make use of Social Growth Engine's account managers and they have worked perfectly for us.
We are getting several targeted connections (prospects) everyday and following up on potential customers with the conversations our manager starts for us. If you are considering it, please do yourself a favour and give it a try. 100% recommended.

With all the new changes on Instagram this service does not work. I reached out to the company several times because I received messages that my account was going to be disabled. Due to the possibility of Instagram shutting down my page I canceled the service. I would not recommend this service to anyone.

I started using the LinkedIn Growth Engine Connect + Direct Message package on June 27th, 2019. At that point, I only had 165 connections. As of 8/17/2019, I'm up to 567 connections and able to extrapolate 300 solid leads from the 402 I gained from Social Growth Engine, so I am more than satisfied with the results.

My brother has a brick-and-click surfboard shop and I help him with social media. At the end of last year I was posting a lot and trying to build an audience but with so many algorithm changes the growth results were disappointing. My goal was to get our Insta to 10k to unlock the swipe-up features and with the help of Social Growth I took it there basically from scratch (500 followers) in seven months. All I needed to do was post and some DM marketing. I am not subscribed at the moment (I want to try other tactics) but I will come back soon.

I started with Social Growth Engine in July 2019 and I use it for LinkedIn only (for now). The results are absolutely above my expectations - 1,183 new followers in 5 weeks. it took a lot work off my shoulders as before I was doing it myself and it was very slow. Thanks guys! I will check the other offers and upgrade
Review by Lilsal Derrow3 months ago
Forget it! Promises and excuses. I've been with Social Growth Engine for about ten months. It started off good with steady growth then when the IG algorithm changes occurred my numbers dropped steadily. I hung in there trusting they would resolve this as promised. For the last three months they have promised that I should start to see growth again. AND they would credit the three months with negative growth to my account. Well it's three months, no growth in my account and the only thing growing is their bank account because they keep billing me. I had hoped they would turn it around but after months it doesn't seem that way.

Promoting my non-for-profit was never this fun. I used to hate the marketing part of the job, but seeing the Growth Engine work to get us interactions is GREAT. I have more time for other duties and I also look more professional on social media without having to hire freelancers or full-time employees. Looking forward to your new platform guys!
