Stim Social Instagram Growth Service Review

Our Grade – C-

Long-running service with shady and information-sparse website that has almost certainly gone through an ownership change.

At a Glance

Stim Social is a long-running Instagram growth service originally based in the Philippines. We’ll give credit where it’s due, it’s been around almost since the beginning. However, there are a number of red flags and many parts of the website look like they haven’t been updated in five years.

We suspect that this service effectively “shut down” at some point then was fairly recently purchased by someone else in an off-market transaction.

Stim Social hides pricing and forces you to sign up and link your Instagram account before displaying it.

This is quite strange and suggests that the service has something to hide. Or, at the least, they realized that they get more conversions if they force people to go through the signup process first. We think this is dishonest.

Service Details

Stim Social offers both Instagram and TikTok growth plans. They still list their original “how it works” on their webpage. It’s useful as a relic of the golden era of botting:

Aside from this explanation, the website tells you absolutely nothing about how the service works or what you can expect. This is a red flag.

Integrity & Reputation

The terms and conditions of this service leads you to Manila, in the Philippines.

However, the website footer leads you to…

3218 E Atlantic Blvd, ste 2082 Pompano Beach FL 33062

This company was just recently reinstated by a Mr. Branko Panich down in Florida.

I have the same question as you: why is a boat company being used as a front for an Instagram growth service? Your guess is as good as mine, but something tells me the reason isn’t to benefit customers.

The website is not transparent at all and provides very few insights into what the service does or how it works. Here’s one thing we found amusing–they blame customers’ continuing to use their accounts regularly as the main cause of action blocks. That’s hilarious.

Next we have the Trustpilot reviews, which contain the typical distribution for a fake service. We’ll be honest, we held off on reviewing this website for so long because it looks horribly neglected and we figured there was no way people were still using it. Amazingly, we were wrong. People are still having bad experiences with Stim Social in 2021.

Now, do I hate “customers” who up-sell services to “clients”? 100%. They’re usually the worst people to work with.

Going further back in the reviews, there are a lot of positive ones, but they all use the same cliche statements and never provide any useful detail. This is an obvious attempt by the owners to boost their appearance on Trustpilot.


This service has been around for a long time but the website is ancient and it’s not clear whether it’s based in the Philippines or is actually associated with a boating company in Florida.

While we were able to locate a former employee who claimed to have grown the customer base to “10,000+” back in 2017, we’re highly suspicious of the current iteration of this service.
