    Hi All,

    I was hoping you could help give me some advice in the IG account I am starting.

    I am currently doing a giveaway niche, where I will giveaway items out to people who win if we hit a certain amount of followers (i.e. back to school items, wall art, etc.).

    Currently, to find my niche, I have been doing the follow/unfollow method and going to Freebie/Deal posting IG pages, Coupon pages, and right when they put up a new post I go through the people that like it right away and follow them. I also find people who enter into a lot of giveaways, and follow them and their friends.

    So far it's been working OK, I've been gaining about 10 followers a day. So not super successful, but better than nothing :).

    Does anyone have any ideas of how to improve followers with this type of niche?

    Or maybe this niche is bad to get into?

    Also, has anyone tried the IG ad promotions? Do they help at all? Or will they be similar to FB advertising?

    Thanks again!

    I mean, I think for sure I have an interest there, because once I can engage and get a real follower, they will tag friends, comment, and get involved with the page.

    I think the issue is finding those followers, and maybe I'm doing methods on the wrong types of pages.

    I mean true, I may not turn a profit later on, but I just want to try to at least build it at first to see if I can get off the ground.

    Yes, reading through everything it sounds like the follow/unfollow method is one of the best ways to go, except that IG recently changed it's algorithm which is causing issues.

    But does anyone have any suggestions with giveaway niches to increase the followers? Maybe I am trying too tricky of a niche right out of the gate.

    I wouldn't say it's hard, it's just I got a feeling that people are not eager to join such pages or join temporarily (at least in my case). And I felt that these giveaways look like bribe or even worse, like work..

    That method might hurt your account in the future, I'd suggest instead of following, like and/or comment on other people giveaway and the ones interested on other giveaways

    Maybe getting a bigger account on your niche to promote a giveaway you're doing
