    Hi

    Im building up an insta account, and atm i have 25k real followers, engagement - 500-900likes /pic 15+ comments /pic

    Im getting +300 follwers /day


    Now, Is it worth buying 25k fake followers to lure people and get more followers /day? or not? will it help in any way?


    What do you guys think?

    Yes you're at a perfect position to buy followers in my opinion. You can make money from shoutouts at 50k. You will also gain more organic followers because you're bigger. Doing SFS with other 50k accounts will make a big difference in your daily gain as well.

    Not worth it at all, there'r many ways to improve your FB ratio without hurting your engagement.

    I'm going to say no. Your engagement will ALWAYS be off

    As you get bigger it will be hard to get accounts to trust you
    Harder to sell shoutouts
    Harder to S4S
    Harder to sell your account for a big payday

    TLDR you'll lose credibility. I'd rather pay a small blog with big engagement then the reciprocal any day

    I wouldn't. For 25k, that engagement already isn't great, and doubling your followers will halve it.

    A lot of people disagree with buying fake followers but if your goal is to sell shoutouts, do it. It has worked for me in the past and is continuing to work. Read through my journey of buying fake engagement. I am buying 50k followers as we speak.

    I would say no, Your engagement is already on the low side. Build it up a bit and then maybe go for it

    Sure, go for it. When you get 50K followers, contact other people with 50K followers for S4S and just sit back and see the followers coming. ;)

    I also worked with building accounts but i did not have the success that you have here 25k + it is really amazing. What i would do is monitor the traffic and keep it consistent. If it drops then buy it. Sounds like this is consistent growth. Good job mate. :)

    I can find a million pages on instagram who bought their followers/likes and they're making insane amounts of money from shoutouts. I feel like everyone here is just feeding this guy bs information. Do your research zwyxeeel.

    I'd say that the best reason to buy followers is that you're not skilled enough to grow up by yourself. You're doing GREAT with your own growth ratio of +300 daily, why adding 25k followers that will lower your like/comment ratio by 50% ?
    If you really want to grow fast, spend one hour more everyday doing your stuff (like-comment-follow...or whatever you do).

    Maybe it's just my opinion...but I'd NEVER buy a shoutout or do s4s with a faker. I always analyze the accounts I deal with on socialblade & co., and it's easy to understand that if you grow up by 300 a day and suddenly a +25.000 appears, they're fake as hell.

    nope nope nope nope nope.

    if you are going to buy followers, I would add something around 10/15% of your actual followers.

    if you have 50% fakes (maybe 65% due bot following you) then your engagement will be lower -> lower engagement = less quality -> lower S4S, lower earnings from S4S.

    if you want to buy fakes assure to buy also likes for each photo you publish and comments so that you can balance, but at the end of game I won't think is a good idea.

    Instead try to do some giveaway, find cheap stuff or something and ask your followers to tag 2-3 friends, at least you are gaining real people.

    This is what I'm talking about. That's why I said he needs to do some research because if it's done right, $$$$$.
