    Hey guys, I have few questions, but first I would like to ask you. How's that possible, it is about page with name @quotes.1love. The guy said, the page is for around an year, he has almost 2 million followers. He's not celebrity or anything, dont get me wrong, I do not have hard feelings, i'm inspired and wondering how he did it. He charges minimum 60euro for shoutout and yesterday, there were minimum 10 shoutouts, that's 600euro for one day. He has other big pages as well.

    My questions is, my page is with 20k followers, all grown naturally and follow/unfollow. No bots, what are the next steps now? Should I buy a bot, shoutouts, what's the fastest way to get it up to 100k. Thank you and have a good day.

    Shoutouts from big pages are really expensive.

    Some people spend big money to get big results.

    And he might already have several other instagram accounts or relationships with those other big accounts to get reasonable exchanges/rates with.

    Dude IMO people love to follow quote related accounts so that they can change their daily status :p so its natural that these type of accounts will have number of followers.

    What are you basing the age of his account on?...there are only 2 possible answers to this.
    #1 he told you - he could be lying
    #2 that's his 'the age of his first photo' - he could have had 1000 previous photos spanning over 7 years ago. The first photo is really the first photo left after he deleted everything else.

    What's my point? Age of account is irrelevant so don't base any thoughts on this.

    Bought shoutout for 60euro from 1.8 million page and gained around 500 followers, I do not think this is a good result..

    Build it more, SFS with other pages until you're like 50k+, it will become a more authority account.
    Then you can start buying shoutouts from bigger pages.
    It ain't cheap, but if you're not willing to invest money into a business, then business isn't for you.
    I know some people who grew 500k in less than 1 year without buying shoutouts, basically did SFS everyday.
    It's not hard to gain 1k+/day after you reach 100k+ it's actually pretty easy.

    Paid shoutouts are a waste of time and money

    I guess for you it was but others it wasn't. I laugh inside when people say that paid shout-outs are "A WASTE OF TIME & TIME". Of course it's a waste of time if you don't know what you are doing overall. Honestly nothing is a waste if you gain valuable knowledge on how the whole process works. Most of the people who start Instagram related journey's are not business savvy and swear shout-outs are expensive. Try telling that to the email marketing guys that built their email list from straight e-mail marketing. Buying clicks per 100 (or more) to their landing pages so they can capture fresh subscribers to their list. This is business people! Instagram isn't that much different (actually it is way better) in my opinion!

    Hopefully I shared something useful and maybe opened your mind to something you didn't notice or see before.....

    Thanks for your input man, yeah I've had a tough time figuring out if they are worth it but like you said if you know what you're doing then it is worth it. Problem is that I don't know what I'm doing yet haha

    any advice for somebody just starting out? Without knowing much, I already tried one for my page from someone in my niche with a big following, still need to learn more so I can make them more effective.

    Instagram has mostly teens. They like quotes and stuff. Make great quality content and you'll be there!

    If he has other big accounts he probably used them to help build it to 1 mill fast. Once you have 5 or 6 big blogs it's pretty much gg

    If he has connections it's very easy to gain.
    I had a friend who gained to 100k in a few months because she had friends with big accounts.

    I guess your account is totally non-related to quotes. I use 1love as well and gain about 2.5k per hour. Always about 700-800 in the first 4 mins! Why? Because I'm niche related :)
