    Yo all,

    Ok so I have a fashion / lifestyle based account that has high quality original content that has around 32k followers and around 700-800 on average likes per pic.

    I essentially have a strong budget to help boost and grow the account (as I make money using branded content not shoutouts etc) but want to know and appreciate any thoughts on the best way to go about this.

    Current set up:

    Using a bot just for likes on relevant hashtags in my niche, which is generating around 50-100 followers per day and really helps with interaction.
    Posting around 3 times per day all fashion and travel based etc.

    Goals:

    With regards to timelines, I'm realistic and 6-9 months would be the target.
    250k followers with around 3-4k likes per pic and decent comments.

    Already tried:

    I have already tried quite a few shoutouts for my niche and honestly it's super hit and miss. The decent ones are a good $300 a pop and even then maybe I'll get around 500-800 new followers with a bit of a drop off after a few days. Doesn't seem worth it at all.

    I'm a bit skeptical about follow/unfollow as I don't want it to look super obvious to brands I work with about any methods I'm using but open to suggestions about whether it's worth it or not.

    One thing that can't happen is getting banned as it will affect my business overall.

    Appreciate any feedback and direction and if anyone even thinks the budget and timeframe is feasible.

    Just saying though, using a bot it would either take ages to hit your goal, or it would take way more than £2500 to hit your goal.

    I doubt you can achieve this with that budget. There's a guy who has an Instagram journey who once mentioned (very recently) that he managed to get to 300kish followers from 0, with a budget of 20k$. I think this should give you the idea how much it would take :)

    That's not too unfeasible, we have investment it's just making sure the investment is going in the right places. Plus we work in pounds so that helps lol. Do you know the name of the thread on here?

    You'll need a much bigger budget OP - have a look at buying 'likes' from big accounts! They're much cheaper and provide similar results to shoutouts.

    Budget is there to be increased if results are proven as we can capitalise from large following through branded content and yeah I think I'm going to test that out too man and put that on my list.

    You would need much more than £2500 to grow to 250k, I reckon about maybe 15k pounds and after that you can do sfs, You don't need to just spend money alone to reach your target.After you buy the shoutouts and are at a certain level, you can exchange promotions between or accounts in your niche which after a while will give rise to the 'snowball' effect. And in the end reach your goal even faster than planned.

    you can with this budget.
    You need find some partner.
    The better way to grow is found good accounts like 500k followers, and propose to make a raffle together.
    A friend of mine got 30k follower just from 1 raffle together with a 500k account.

    OP, do add my Skype and we can talk about this.

    Also, you're right, every niche is different so the prices vary, but fashion is probably the most expensive niche on IG as it's the most profitable, and I'm talking from past and current experience.

    If you were to get penny clicks, then sure. It would have to be super targeted though.
