Overall rating: (4.7 / 5) (My personal #1 Recommended FREE Instagram Tool)
Intro – Own personal quick review:
You have to be aware that this is NOT a program that you will find a 20-30min “promo” (sales) video on and maybe the good old saying in business have never before been so correct, (“if it is a good product you do not need good marketing”). Am ready to agree as I am a user of Crowdfire myself, it is actually my first choice to be able to use all of my Instagrams (yes I got many) and if I had to choose just one “tool” to keep I would definitely take Crowdfire before any other “helper” out there.
What is Crowdfire about?
Crowdfire is an app that you can use both on your phone or computer. It currently got over 16 million users (!) and it is easy to see why. It is made to save you a ton of time and to help you grow your audience and presence on the fastest growing social media platform there is Instagram. The good old saying “A great product does not need good marketing” seems to have never been as appropriate as in this case. Below you have a great video explanation on what the “app” is all about.
However, it works just as great for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, WordPress, Etsy, Shopify, Vimeo, etc, etc.
How does it work?
To get started is very simple, you simply go to their website and sign up for a free account that allows you to connect one account and start using its services. You will get a “guided tour” as soon as you sign up so you know how to get started using the different functions.
You can also see a great explanation video that I have embedded below:
The above video demo explains it all very detailed and if you are eager to start right away I absolutely understand you 🙂

The services offered
Crowdfire does not have the automatic follow/unfollow function that many other “auto Instagram programs got” and that is actually a good thing as they are being shut down one by one. Even worse is that your account can be banned and shut down too if you use them, same goes for prewritten auto comments and DMs.
The services offered to you are so many but below I have listed some of the ones I like the most with Crowdfire. (See below):
- Find articles and images that your particular audience like (so you can repost them on your social media)
- Schedule posts so you never have to worry about stress to find content to publish
- Alarm function that goes of when it is the best time to post (this one is great!)
- The engage function automatically (and more important strategically) find the ones you should engage with (like, comment, etc)
- Customize your posts for ALL your social profiles, avoiding a time-consuming headache to create separate posts for each one
- Monitor your account to find out exactly what you should do to grow, get more clicks, etc
- Finds “content posts” you can publish right away so you do not need to write it yourself (it finds the kind of content your audience love!)
- And much more!
How is the support?
The support you are getting is through e-mail for the moment, have only used it 2 times and both times I have got an answer the same day so I would call that very good, especially considering that there hasn´t been so much need for support as the platform is super simple to both use and understand.
Something I would like to see in the future on Crowdfire is a live-chat support and I am pretty sure that it is just a matter of time before they make that reality also, I mean with 16 million+ users it feels like that is one of the next steps of the company, right?
The different memberships offered
As mentioned above, Crowdfire is FREE to use for you if you only want to connect one account (linked to your different social media pages) and want to use the functions on that one only. However, if you got more than one account you want to connect (I know, also got more than one) then you might want to consider to upgrade as it is actually a very low cost to do so right now.
Below you can see the 3 different paid options you got, their functions and price:
Important to mention: I would recommend that you try it out for free first just to see if it is something for you or not. However, there is no “danger” in paying for it directly as you got a 30-day money back guarantee. They also use PayPal as a payment option and that is always a guarantee also if you for some reason shouldn´t be satisfied and want your money back.
Is Crowdfire a scam?
So, is Crowdfire a scam? No, of course not, the question is understandable though as we have seen a lot of (especially) Instagram automation software that I guess you can call scams as they are being shut down one by one. You know the ones that follow people on automation and also unfollows them. Automatic prewritten messages that just look stupid and fake, same goes for the auto DMs…
What´s worse than you might lose money that you spent buying this “tools” when they are being shut down is that you also (highly) risk getting your account banned and shut down to as it is strictly forbidden (according to Instagrams rules) to use this kind of services.
Crowdfire is playing by the rules though and there is no coincidence that it is used by some of the biggest Insta celebrities out there.
Is it for you?
Well, if you are using social media only “for fun” then this is not for you, at least I don´t think so. However, if you are in it for the business aspect of things then this is definitely for you. It will save you HUGE amounts of time, help you grow a lot faster and easier than if you didn´t use it and am absolutely sure that you will love it overall.
It won´t help you with some of the things the paid services out there do, like for example auto-like, auto DM, and so on,
so if you want to know about my #1 recommended paid alternative that is actually a great combination to use together with Crowdfire then you can read all about the #1 Instagram Super Tool that I use myself on this page.
However, I can tell you that Crowdfire is something you might want to try as well as they actually got some advantages that the other one don´t have.
Below you got some clear pros and cons of Crowdfire.
- HUGE TIME SAVER
- No risk to get banned on Instagram
- FREE for as long as you want
- Uses PayPal as a form of payment if you like (that is always a + in my book)
- It is easy to use
- Got no live-chat support (only e-mail)
- Don´t Auto Like, Follow/Unfollow, and auto-DM, etc.
There are many similar services and tools out there, some bad and some good, some paid and some are even free, and I know about a couple of free ones you absolutely want to try and use before you start with paid services, as you might get just as good (or better) results than with a paid tool.
Do NOT buy a service like this before you know how to REALLY Max Monetize your Instagram audience
The absolute #1 recommendation I can give you is that you, first of all, learn how to run an online business and create a recurring income from using Instagram, or any other social media online.

Final words and verdict
Overall rating: (4.7 / 5)
Ok, I think I have made my point pretty clear on this one. I have use Crowdfire myself, for over 1 year now and I have even upgraded to the paid version of it. However, you can use it for free for as long as you want and you can benefit hugely only by having the free version.
So Crowdfire is actually my best recommended free tool for Instagram.
Crowdfire is without a doubt the absolute #1 recommended tool if you want to go big on social media. It is like haveíng a social media agency working for you without having to pay the high costs that they would charge.
The rating 4,7 out of 5 stars is a very good one and the only thing that kept me from giving a 5 out of 5 is the fact that they do not have a live chat function. Got a feeling that they will soon though and when they do I will be quick to update this rating to a full score.
However, I love the time-saving aspects of it as well as the simplicity of using it. Am completely in love with some of the functions it got and it has made my Instagram (and other social media profiles) work A LOT easier. I now have a lot more time over to work on other things in my business.
I strongly recommend it!

There are many similar tools out there for you to choose from, some are better than others without a doubt, and more importantly safer than others to use, because the last thing you want is to get banned from Insta or having your account shut down, right?
The absolute best thing I can recommend is, first of all, to learn how you sell on Instagram because when you know that you won´t need as many followers as you might think, in fact, you can make money only with a few followers if you know what to do. Once you have an online business setup, Instagram will work A LOT better for you.
