    So, I planned to do an absolutely fake giveaway when I'll hit 30k on my personal IG account (currently 27.4k), probably next week, where I'm going to gift iPhone6/GalaxyS5/BeatsByDre or something like that to one lucky follower who share the pic (more times would mean more chances to win) and comment my Giveaway pic tagging 3 friends. The Fate will decide that the user who will win is one of my alter-ego, gg well played...
    This can be considered one of the most effective popularity-magnet post, as already stated here on BHW in many posts.

    Any advice about:
    - What products to promise (nothing more expensive than 600-700$, no laptop or pc);
    - Where to find pics of a random person holding the prize (I know, I can do this by my self, but if you have any sources...meh, easier for me);
    - I don't want to be "rude" with followers, so I won't do CPA/landing pages/tricky stuff to monetize; any other way to earn something with this post?

    Thanks,
    Zangar

    People sure do love iPhones so I suggest you give away an iPhone 5S or 6 maybe?

    Are you in a specific niche or is it just generic followers you're after?

    IF you're working on a niche, iPhone is a dumb, dumb thing to give away -- you'll just get people from all over the place. Make it something niche-specific. $500 gift card to an online store that's all about whatever your account is about?

    Restrict the giveaway to people in 1st world countries to avoid useless followers.

    where to find pics of stuff for your fake giveaway? on the very same place where you run the giveaway, instagram :), search with the right hashtag and you'll have a neverending flow of pics to choose from, select a good pic preferably where the box is present too, edit it a bit, flip horizontally, if you're skilled with PS, you can add a real looking timestamp to it, like if it really happened not too long ago etc., but maybe short vids even work better, you can hire ppl on fiverr to do a fake review for you for $5, an unboxing type video perhaps, you can also make real looking accs and post proofs of your giveaway with those and tag these fake accs with your main acc which runs the giveaway, in short: try to make it as real as possible

    you don't want to be rude to your followers and refuse to use CPA, yet you're running a fake giveaway, that's already pretty rude, if you ask me :)

    Nothing wrong enough to get banned for.

    Now that's definitely what I was looking for. Thanks Honeybird!!
    About the "rudeness" part: at the moment, I'll use this GA just for growing my acc. Making people to stumble on a landing page with surveys/cell number/email is a little more aggressive than just "who cares leave a comment, maybe you'll win". In the future it won't be a problem, now I wanna try how it works in the polite(how funny considering it's fake) way :)

    Are you using and viral plugin for this? I've tested Kingsumo Giveaways in the past, it's an amazing plugin for viral giveaways.

    I would send them to a LP that collects the user's email.

    "Enter to your email for a chance to win xxxxxx"

    You'll be able to monetize your list multiple times if you do it this way.

    My advice..dont make it a fake giveaway. Actually give something niche related away. Otherwise you're just cheating your fans and it wont last.

    I'm about to use only a fake picture for a fake giveaway, man. I'm (unfortunately) totally useless in IT, computer science, and generic languages (I don't even know what's a plugin, nice catch for me).

    This is what I plan to do in the future, atm I just want to try the giveaway traffic-magnetism. Thank you very much for the wanna-be useful advice Paperboy :)

    It's pretty hard considering I'm a model. I can't giveaway clothes, otherwise I'll cut-off half of my followers by genre, another big part for size, another part for personal fashion tastes...etc.etc...
    I also can't giveaway a fake gift card for a brand, I'd risk to be sued.

    Motivational poster on my desk, thanks for understanding me mladz :)
