    Hi guys,
    i'm going to buy one IG account. I'm going to invest some money for a big page, but it's the first time for me and i'd like to understand better..
    I checked some account on socialblade, but my questions are:

    1 - Why some account has a daily growth like 600 followers and the next day 3k ?
    2 - How to understand if followers are real? ok, i checked by mobile some profiles and looks real, but how to understand the quality of each profile and the interest in that niche? maybe some thousands are following by mobile app like instafollow or something similar?
    3 - the conversion in like/pic.. at the moment a profile could be fake in all points i think.. how understand if the quantity of like are real and not boosted with some bot profiles ?
    4 - how much is the value of followers? $/1k ? i understand it changes by the quality of the profile and i mean quality real followers
    5 - i searched in the forum but i didnt find a section, where can i see some accounts on sale?

    i'm sorry for my bad english and i hope someone will help me, thank you in advance.

    1. For some that is completely natural to have big spikes, for others that can be a red flag. If you see a spike in a day on socialblade that can mean one of two things, they got a shout out from a huge account and it sent a ton of followers their way as well or they bought fake followers. You can try and check their engagement on that specific day and day after, a big spike like that would very well mean a big spike in engagement/comments as well their page should definitely reflect that. You don't get x,xxx over night and not see a ton of likes/comments and such.

    2. This is a lot harder, but you can ask them for a real time post and watch it constantly over the first few hours and look at the profiles, pictures they post, how long ago that follower posted etc. If it is nothing but empty bios, no pics to post, only a few from weeks or months ago that is a good indicator the followers/likes aren't real. But it is very hard to know for sure.

    3. don't quite understand what you are askin.

    4. it isn't about the followers, it is about the engagement. You can have millions of followers and have low engagement, no company/brand is going to look to your account for endorsement if nobody likes/comments on your posts

    5. good luck on finding accounts everybody wants good accounts, it is rare you find em for sale on the forums. Sometimes they pop up, but you are going to have to DM people directly through IG or join skype/kik groups.

    hopefully that helps bud.

    either the company may have fast growth or they buy followers. (there are tons of apps).
    well the value of the followers depends on how active the followers are.
