U-Gro Review – A big scam?

U-Gro Review

So, you want to use Instagram to market your business, brand, or cause. First, you need interested followers who will interact with you. Real, genuine engagement is essential to growing your Instagram presence.

While this is manually time-consuming, it may be possible to save some time using third-party Instagram growth services. It’s imperative to know which ones are and are not reputable.

Let’s look into U-Gro in this review to see where they stand.


What is U-Gro?

U-Gro claims to offer Instagram Growth Management, but I suspect this is merely an Instagram bot.

At first glance, their website has a familiar background with different colors, which tells me that this website could be cloned or some variation of such.

While the appeal of a website isn’t usually indicative of its reputation, it shouldn’t look like an elementary child built it.


What features does U-Gro offer?

U-Gro’s “How It Works” page on the website carries the motto, “You Post – We Do The Rest!” They claim that this is how it works.

Step 1) Find Your Audience based on the information you submit to them

Step 2) Post As You Usually Do then they like or following depending on the plan you choose

Step 3) They Generate Traffic & Exposure though interactions for organic reach and growth

Step 4) You Get Followers & New Business with the increased engagement

I think you can guess why I think this could be an Instagram bot, but I digress. Let’s look at their packages and prices.

What prices for services does U-Gro provide?

U-Gro offers a 10-day Free Trial. After that you can pay for one of the first two plans if you choose. The two higher priced plans offer no free trial option.

  • Cancel Anytime
  • Urgo Social Targeting
  • Real Followers

  • Comment Engagement
  • Comment Management
  • Everything from the Budding Plan

Sprout, Budding, and Blossom include what they call AI Targeting, which is likely code for botting technology.


Is U-Gro safe?

Before I categorize a service like this as safe or risky, I put it through several tests. The positives and negatives are the results of said tests.


  • Secure Website – The website is https secure
  • Transparency in Pricing – Their plans and prices are transparent, leaving no room for hidden fees
  • FAQ & Help Page – Surprisingly, they did take the time to add a separate FAQ and Help page


  • Lacking 24/7 Support – While this is all too common, they have no 24/7 support option. This is a sign that they don’t plan on anything more than being a temporary service, which is evidence of risk.
  • No Real Reviews – While they have some “reviews/testimonials” on the homepage, they cannot be confirmed and appear to be fake or made up.
  • Lack of Secure Payment System – Any company selling something online that intends to stick around and is credible will have a verified payment system, but Ugro does not. Red flag.
  • No Contact Form – Companies that intend to be in it for the long haul make the effort to have a contact form, which is how they maintain a database of former and existing clients.

I cannot categorize this website/service as safe. In my opinion, this is a risky service.


Final Thoughts

U-Gro has some good features, but overall, I cannot honestly state they are here for the long haul. I also cannot verify that they are dedicated to their customers.

I blog about a range of tech topics.

For the last 7 years I have been a social media marketing specialist and business growth consultant, so I write about those the most.

Full transparency: I do review a lot of services and I try to do it as objectively as possible; I give honest feedback and only promote services I believe truly work (for which I may or may not receive a commission) – if you are a service owner and you think I have made a mistake then please let me know in the comments section.
