    Hi guys!

    I have recently started to grow 2-3 accounts on Instagram, using all the helpful tips from you guys on BHW, thank you for that!

    2 years ago me and a colleague from work started a IT-consultancy company. We are most of the time recruiting 18-25 year olds, both men and women. To make the recruitment cheaper I want to try out to find people for my business through Instagram.

    My plan is following:

    1. Create an account with a nische thats popular for young people. Target only people in my hometown (2 million inhabitants) with the help of followliker.

    2. When I have 15-20k followers I will start to make competitions where the goal is to get people to email my business if they (or anyone they know) are interested in a job i'm offering.

    Example of a competition: I will upload a picture just with text saying "Do you know anyone that needs a job in XX and has the skill of Y? Do you want to make some quick money? If you do know anyone, get them to email us with their CV and we will arrange an interview, email adress in bio. Every tip that lead to an employment will be awarded with 500 USD."

    The text is just an example but I hope you get the idea!

    My questions:

    Do you guys think it's possible? Have you seen any instagram account that have done this before?

    Super thankful for help.

    Cheers guys :)

    i thought people use IG for entertainment purposes. i have a hard time seeing people using IG as classified.

    You're probably right. But if people get presented with the opportunity to earn a quick buck, wouldn't some of them take it :) ?

    use IG to build your list. use a CRM to manage your contacts. you'd probably need to be a network-marketing-ish niche to make this work. otherwise, you might be wasting your time.

    stuff like petcare products or personal fitness might do well.

    good luck.:D
