    Hello Guys,
    SEMrush
    I hope this is correct section to post a question.
    I have been reading a lot about instagram advertisement but one thing is nowhere to be found is you can not advertise on Instagram for followers. At first it was bit shock for me because Facebook has this option but Instagram Not.

    Now, I have been thinking about other ways from where I can get followers for my instagram account.
    Before I go ahead I want to hear out your experiences and thoughts.

    I personally think that buying Instagram followers when you're just starting is a good idea. Your profile need to look the part in order for users to trust your business.

    I'd say a minimum of 1000 followers should be a good start.
    I'm seeing how expensive Instagram followers are: https://socialtipster.co/buy-instagram-followers/
    Probably because they claim they're real

    Yeah, I guess you are right.
    In Instagram you can just post something and promote your post, isn`t it?

    By 'promote' you mean through paid ads?
    Well, a better strategy when you're starting off is to figure out how best to find the right hashtags that'll get your content to the explore page.

    Yeah, paid. In order to earn money you have to spend some.
    Hashtags and user name are important in this context, it have to be easy to find for other users

    Paid ads are great, but you're likely to lose a lot of money before getting a hang of it.

    Or, one more way, you can just follow to the followers of your direct competitors. Easy, free and effective

    Instagram changed its limits so that you'll start experiencing action blocks if you tried to follow too many people within a short time.

    A strategy that I find effective to this day is the Mother-Child method.

    Sometimes it gives good results but you have to try to do this manually.

    Have you considered using an Instagram growth service? You'll be spending less yet gaining more followers. You just have to find a good one.

    Hello @smanuva, regarding buying IG followers will depend on two things below:

    1. If you're running an e-commerce store/ affiliate site and plan to run IG shoutout or IG ads to drive sales, I would recommend you to buy IG followers because it can increase the trust of the customer who checks your IG profile. It can impact your sales conversion. You can buy around 3K-5K followers if your IG account is new, also ensure to buy likes on your IG post also to make it looks legitimate IG post with that number of followers. Buying followers will be challenging for you when you want to build your organic engagement on your IG account since most of them are fake (bot) followers. There is a special occasion when IG has an update algorithm, some bot followers may be deleted, hence you will have a chance again to recover the engagement of your IG account. In conclusion, I could say if the purpose of buying IG followers to drive sales at the beginning, it will be fine to do that especially if running IG shoutout to an influencer or running IG ads. It can help to increase your conversion rate.

    2 If you're building an IG meme page to monetize it by offering shoutout, I would not recommend you to buy fake followers or likes. It will be better for you to buy IG shoutout from other IG meme pages to grow your IG followers. If you buy followers, most of them are fake in which no engagement to your IG account when you make a post or story. It will harm your IG engagement score, in this case, the IG algorithm will not boost your post to explore page.

    Regarding the followers for your account, I would like to suggest you buy IG shoutout from other accounts, that's the fastest way you can do to grow your account. If you use Instagram growth service, they just help you to grow your account organically with engagement, it's not an shortcut way to growth your IG followers. I hope it helps :)

    Don't buy followers , because those followers are not organic and they can leave any time. Make your content impressive and attractive ,so that people join you with interest

    I guess, Instagram don`t have this option because this is not effective, it`s better to have 200 real organic followers, than 1000 fakes.
    One of the best ways to get followers is to ask top bloggers to tell about your product or services or whatever

    When you're running an e-com site, you want to give a good first impression on potential customers. Most people will not even check to see if your followers are fake or real, so having, say, 20k fake followers would look so much better than when you have 30 real followers.

    Personally, I've never paid for followers. I usually do bulk following myself. The only problem with adding your own followers is you don't know which accounts are real or fake. I don't follow authority figures. I'll usually find someone whos into the niche I'm in and start following all of the people following them in hopes of them following me back. I have one account with about 8k followers and is semi targeted to my health niche. It takes a little work but I don't have to spend any money and can do it straight from the phone when I'm watching tv or something.

    My strategy for minimizing the chances of following fake users is to never us sources with more than 10k followers.
    I also make sure my sources have great engagement.

    That's a good idea. If you look into their posts you can usually see by how many likes/comments they get if their following is engaging or just fake.
