10 Mass Planner Alternatives to Get More Instagram Followers 

Mass Planner was a social media automation tool for Instagram and other social media platforms. Though it was one of the best in the industry at the time, it shut down in May 2017, leading its users to find alternatives for post scheduling and follower growth.

Post scheduling isn’t that difficult, and now many of the social networks have options built-in to their platforms – but it is still time-consuming.

If you are still struggling to find something to replace Mass Planner with, here are 10 alternatives that will help you get more Instagram followers. And as an added bonus, many of these platforms can be used with more than just Instagram, allowing you to get even more bang for your social media buck.

1. YoViral

YoViral allows you to buy high-quality likes
and views from real Instagram users. You can choose to have them all delivered
immediately or at a rate of your choice.

If you opt to purchase one of their monthly
plans, the platform will automatically detect new uploads within 30 seconds and
starts sending real likes to you automatically. This speed and convenience is
why many influencers and brands are using this platform already.

It has a two-click process and takes seconds
to order. All you have to do is enter your username, then select the plan you
want, then your order is delivered at your chosen preference.

2. ViralRace

With ViralRace, you can buy 100% real and engaged followers, likes, and high-quality views. The platform pushes content to real, active Instagrammers who already like content similar to yours. The process allows ViralRace users to rapidly gain real followers and likes.

You can choose between instant or gradual delivery, depending on your preference. It offers real engagement whenever you post, so it’s an ideal option for businesses and influencers who want to use social proof to reach the Discover page faster and to attract brand deals.

3. Krootez

Unlike Massplanner, which catered to various social media platforms, Krootez is only available for Instagram. As rather inclusive Instagram marketing service than a bot, it covers everything you may want to improve and automate, such as likes, followers, and views. Their monthly plans are available on-demand as a custom service.

With it, you can reach a comprehensive growth of following with authentic users. The service also provides targeting age, sex, and country of origin so you can make sure you build an audience of followers that are part of your target demographic. This keeps everything relevant to what you’re promoting while ensuring the authenticity of the followers and engagement you earn.

You can also use Krootez equally for individual or business needs. This service can help promote your blog on Instagram and increase product sales.

4. CheapIGFollowers

If you’re a Windows user, or willing to run a Windows virtual machine if you use Linux or Mac, then you can take advantage of the CheapIGFollowers social media automation service. Right now they are devoted to Instagram only, but formerly they provided automation of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and Tumblr.

Instagram specific tools allow you to follow, follow-back, and unfollow real, targeted users. You’ll also be able to auto-repost, auto-like, comment, and delete posts. The platform also makes it easy to conduct hashtag and user research to build a targeted audience and manage your direct messages.

CheapIGFollowers mostly focus on selling real Instagram followers, likes, and views, and their website’s design simplicity makes the process easy and does not require some special skills. They are known for fast delivery and friendly support line.

5. Growthoid

Growthoid is one of those companies that you can rely on to be completely manual – so there’s no messing with anything that’s artificial or detrimental to your Instagram growth. They’ an Instagram growth company that’s totally safe for your profile, and completely genuine. Their followers are 100% real, and will interact with your content.

6. BuyIGLikesFast

BuyIGLikesFast is among the most popular social media automation platforms because it works with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, TikTok, but their main focus is Instagram. BuyIGLikesFast allows you to manage all of that in a few taps.

The platform builds personas and profiles for your followers so that when someone sends you an email, direct message, or comments through one of the profiles you’ve attached to the system, it’s added to the persona in your system.

It’s worth noting that they do not actually make the posts to Instagram, and instead allows you to create and schedule the posts, and then sends you a notification when it’s time to post since there is no posting API.

As such, you’ll need to be available to actually push the post live at the scheduled time, and if you do not do so, no post will go onto Instagram. You’ll also have to copy and paste the caption you create for the post.

Compared to other social media automation tools and Massplanner alternatives, BuyIGLikesFast is not so expensive. Their prices on IG-related products start at $3.99 for 100 Followers, and at $2,99 for 100 likes and views.

7. Combin

Combin, originally known as Syneract, is
another Instagram-only tool, but it offers scheduling, automation, and
analytics. Though it’s only geared toward managing a single Instagram account
at a time, it’s a good Massplanner alternative for people who were using it mostly
for a scheduling tool rather than an Instagram bot, but both options are

The starter account is free but only allows for a single Instagram account with 50 results for posts, 25 search results for users, and 100 daily actions. From there, you’ll need to pay $10/month for the growth plan. If you want more, you can increase the plan.

If you want to add the scheduler, the free option allows you to schedule 3 Instagram posts per week, up to 15 Instagram Stories per week, with location tagging and bulk image uploading. Paid plans start at $7/month for the scheduler.

You’ll have to sign up for both products individually if you want to use them both. The Growth tool allows you to grow your Instagram audience, target certain people for you to follow, machine learning user analysis, advanced Instagram search, repetitive action automation, and more.

The Scheduler tool allows you to plan and schedule both Instagram Post and Instagram Stories. You can create dozens of stories with a single click, and style your Instagram grid layout.

Combin is a software available for Mac,
Windows, and Linux devices that run the Ubuntu operating system.

8. SocialPilot

SocialPilot is an automation tool for easier social media management. It allows you to connect and manage 50 or more social profiles on each social network from a single dashboard.

Not only can you upload up to 500 posts with bulk scheduling, but you can get important analytics information to see how your growth is going. You can also share the account with team members so other people can complete social media tasks. Plus, you can review their posts and updates before approving them for scheduling.

The tool also allows you to respond to
comments, messages, and posts across Facebook Pages from a single Social Inbox,
so you can have conversations in real-time.

Short on things to post? SocialPilot includes
content curation, discovery, and custom feeds so you can get relevant and
evergreen content from across the web, delivered directly to your account. You can
schedule it on your list and allow it to reach your targeted audience. Add RSS
feeds to put your favorite blogs in auto-sharing mode.

If you’re more a visual learner, you can
visualize your social media strategy on a calendar – with the calendar tool comes
in handy when you want to keep track of your posts on various accounts.

It’s also possible to reach a wider audience
by boosting your Facebook posts directly from the SocialPilot dashboard if you
have your Facebook Ads account connected. This makes for a seamless ad
management experience.

With the browser extension, you can schedule
and share content from anywhere on the internet, and with native mobile apps,
you can schedule and manage your content from your mobile device using either
the SocialPilot Android or iOS app.

9. OneUp

OneUp is a web-based tool so you do not have to download a program to your computer and do you do not need to have OneUp running for it to post. With this platform, you can easily schedule and automatically recycle your social media posts.

One thing that sets this platform apart from the other alternatives on this list is that allows you to schedule Google My Business posts to help you boost your appearance in Google’s local business results. None of the other scheduling and automation tools on this list offer Google My Business as an option, though many still advertise offering Google+, which is now a defunct platform.

OneUp allows you to categorize your content so
you can manage it without needing a content calendar template or spreadsheet.
You can schedule your posts in seconds with a drag-and-drop visual calendar and
the categorized queues.

You can schedule your posts to automatically
repeat at your chosen interval, or you can auto-post them via RSS feeds.
There’s a bulk uploader so you can upload and schedule multiple posts at once –
allowing you to plan for the week or month in a matter of minutes. With the
video and GIF uploader, you can natively add videos and GIFs to your posts.

Not only does the platform work for Instagram
and Google My Business, but it also works with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and
Pinterest. Pricing starts at $9/month after a 7-day free trial.

10. FriendlyLikes

FriendlyLikes is a service for Instagram that allows for total Instagram automation. You can automatically gain followers, likes, and views on your videos and IGTV.

To make the most of the service, all you have to do is find the right product that meets your requirements. You can easily use their website for personal or business accounts.

There are various packages to choose from, almost tailor-made to suit your needs. Depending on your available budget, you can choose the packages that work best for your business. Plans range from $29.95/month to $99.95/month and can be canceled at any time with no fee.

Instagram automation plans help make it easier to grow and manage your audience and content, so you can spend more time creating the content to support your marketing campaigns. None of these products and plans are meant to completely replace creating content and engaging with your audience, however.

It’s essential to keep tools in your arsenal that can aid you in producing high-quality Instagram content. 

Instasize is one such app available for both iOS and Android, which lets you edit photos and videos on mobile to great effect. It contains a catalogue of photography-inspired color filters that users can apply and adjust to their liking, as well as more granular editing tools to modify saturation, hue, highlights, and shadows. Text can also be overlaid onto both photos and videos in varying font styles, and users can choose from premade borders or create their own to add some background flair.

Make sure you still have time every day to take at least a few minutes to check and make sure everything is running smoothly.

This way, if you notice something is out of whack or doesn’t post according to your original plan, you can address it quickly, rather than potentially alerting your audience to the fact that you’re using automated bots, and not really paying attention to the account.
