There is an answer to help you grow your Instagram Followers.

There is an app call Crowdfire that allows you to grow your followers and manage them once you have them.

After all you don’t want a bunch of followers who don’t take any actions, never like or comment on your photos.

What can you do with Crowdfire?

You can use Crowdfire to help you manage your Instagram account to do the following:

  • Build your following by finding relevant users to follow using the “Copy Followers” feature.  This feature, is worth it in it’s own right.  If I can find people interested in the niche I want to market too then I have a much greater chance of success.
  • Manage your account by finding inactive users and your unfollowers.
  • Manage and monitor your recent followers and unfollowers.
  • Understand your relationship to another Instagram account using FriendCheck allows you to easily check your connection to any other Instagram user.

In this example I check my relationship with a good friend of mine Nicole Hanchi, not surprising we follow each other.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the useful information. I’m not yet active on Instagram. Just have my toes in it. But I have a crowdfire account. I don’t use it as much, but when I get over all the things I’m doing right now with marketing, Instagram is on my list.


Crowdfire is superb! Thanks for introducing us to it. I added my Instagram and Twitter accounts and started to sort them both out. It’s simpler and quicker to use than similar programs.

Hi Andy, I had heard the name “Crowdfire,” but had no idea what it was. Thanks for clarifying. I’m still kind of new to Instagram, but this look like a great way to become more involved. Thanks for your tutroial. Very helpful.

Hi Andy,

Great tips. I just haven’t found the right niche to work for me on Instagram yet but I do keep trying. I see you have quite a bit of posts in Instagram, so I will come back when I try it again.

Thank you.

Hi Andy

I’m afraid I haven’t got round to Instagram yet, but looking at Sue’s comment it sounds as if you can use it for Twitter too, so I’ll head on over to have a look.

Thanks, and have a good weekend, Joy

Hello Andy!

It has been a while. (I’m using the PAC Rotator at last YAY!) .

I feel stuck in a bit of a quandary… we are told to get ans many followers as possible as quick as we can.

I disagree. We are told to follow everyone back.. I disagree. The thing that get’s me is why have people follow you across social media platforms ?

I mean.. you have 2000 twitter followers… do you want to same friends on IG ? I don’t think so… Or do I have it wrong ?

To me it’s pointless having the same friends on different networks… I think it better to keep them seperate… one channel for 1 thing.. another channel for something else…

Am I making sense ?

P.S Love your videos.


Thanks for the comment, I agree just building the same list in multiple channels is not necessarily useful, but then some people are in multiple channels but spend most of their time only on one channel. So I don’t think it is cut and dry on what is the best strategy.


Andy, so glad I stopped by!

I too had heard about CrowdFire but didn’t know what the purpose was or what the benefits were. You did a great job explaining how you use it so that you stay more productive.

Now I know I need to check this out.

Thanks Andy, great overview!
