Who are they for?
Both services are available in Portuguese and in the form of websites for those interested in automating patterns on Instagram, thus increasing the number of followers and profile visibility. On the Gestãogram page, the platform is specific and claims to be useful for stores, celebrities, opinion makers, bands, marketing agencies and restaurants. Bume (www.bume.io) has a broader target audience and covers both the needs of agencies and administrators in the media area as well as personal profiles and self-employed professionals.
Interactions are the lifeblood of automation tools. Although the two options focus on reference profiles and competitors to start following and enjoying posts (in addition to hashtags and locations), there are slight differences between the platforms. One is the gender filter (male or female), available from Bume, which can be interesting depending on the purpose of the account and the target audience of the store, influencer or restaurant, for example.

In the configurations of both, it is possible to define the maximum number of pages for the tools to follow, based on the interaction speeds to be applied. This is important for the user because, if adjusted incorrectly, the profile is at risk of being blocked. That’s because Instagram can consider high levels of activity as spam – here are five things you shouldn’t do on Instagram.
To avoid the situation, services indicate not to interact manually while resources are in use. At Gerenciagram, the speeds available for configuration are Beginner, Normal, Fast and Turbo. Each, when selected, displays a tip on setting with recommended mode for a specific account.

In the Bume version, the Normal, Fast and Super Fast speeds are established, respectively, for profiles with up to 400 followers, between 400 and 600, and above 600. There is also an alternative of automatic speed, in which the site is responsible for regulate actions according to the profile. This can be a safer way to avoid blockages.
With the number of interactions within the limit approved by the social network, Gerenciagram promises to get 45 to 230 followers per day for customers. At Bume, according to the service, the promise is 50 to 200 «depending on the quality of the posts».
An extra feature available in both tools is the «Safe List». The function allows you to define who the device should never fail to follow or profiles to which no form of interaction should be performed. Gerenciagram also offers an option to follow or not private profiles and stop following the pages followed by the tool automatically.

To facilitate the routine of account administrators, platforms also have functions for scheduling posts. In this case, Bume is restricted to scheduling the publication of photos and videos, while Gerenciagram extends the feature to Stories, ideal for accounts that have adopted strategies in the Instagram stories feature.
It is also possible to configure direct personalized messages to be sent as soon as new profiles start to follow the accounts registered in the two tools. In Gerenciagram, there is the possibility to respond to comments on images automatically.

To monitor the performance of the interactions and the general growth of the registered profile, the services offer a special tab to check the account reports. Gerenciagram gathers a history with all the activities triggered by the service, with graphs and conversion rates. On the other hand, Bume, in addition to the diagrams, also points the results from each reference profile, location or hashtag configured.
With few differences between features, the price of automation can help you choose between Gerenciagram and Bume. Before subscribing, users can test the features for up to five days for free. During this period, it is possible to configure the target audience and monitor interactions.
Gerenciagram works with basic, quarterly and annual plans. The simplest one costs R $ 37.90 in the first month and R $ 89.90 in the following months. For use in three months, the value is R $ 185, in one year, the subscription costs R $ 718.76.

It is worth mentioning that the conversion report on the Managementgram is only available for the quarterly or annual subscription, as well as support by chat or WhatsApp, and the addition of extra accounts, with the cost of R $ 50 per month per profile added.
In the case of rival Bume, the monthly package is R $ 79, the quarterly is R $ 177 and the semester is R $ 294. According to the company, all plans have the same features, with the only differences in price and contract time. If the user prefers to add another profile to automate, the service charges a new package subscription.
Before deciding which automation service to use to get new followers on Instagram, it is ideal to check complaints about the tools on Reclame Aqui, a site with customer reviews about various companies. Most popular with users, Gerenciagram has 90 messages about the service, with an average score of 6.51 for the service received to resolve issues on the platform.

Most complaints point to payment and refund problems, in case of profiles with errors while the tool was activated. A large proportion of comments also report problems with disabling automatic activities. After using the software during the trial period or canceling the plan, users claim that the site has not stopped following profiles, and thus has caused accounts to be blocked.
In the case of Bume, Reclame Aqui registered few complaints in recent months. However, as with the competitor, the messages indicate difficulties in deactivating the tool after the testing period, with profiles blocked because they are identified as spam and the company’s precarious service.
When deciding which system to apply to improve your Instagram account, it is important to know the purpose of the subscription and what actions are desired with the tool. While one allows you to automatically respond to comments and schedule the publication of Stories, the other can limit the audience by gender and select a speed with less restriction hazards.
With regard to package prices, there is little difference in value. The distinction is in the modality of plans: semiannual and annual. Even so, it is recommended that the user take advantage of the free trial to use the platform and check all the features offered.
