    Absolutely disappointed. I paid $60 to get a shoutout for my niche page on men's fashion on another men's fashion account with 1.5 million followers one hour ago. I was expecting to get flooded with followers. I got like 30. What???

    In the meantime, I have unfollowed a bunch of people and am at high risk of refollowing one of my followers causing me to lose them when they realize I have unfollowed them. Do I really have to manually check if I am following someone and then follow.

    Maybe that account was full of bots and fake follows? you need to know the engagement rate before paying for such service

    Is your IG page really impressive because visitors first check how your page is looking and if you have impressive content.
    1 more thing i can say that maybe he is using groups to get likes and followers.
    If you have same niche as him and your content is good enough this can not be happen.
    In future whenever you ask someone for shoutout ask him that how many followers you can expect from him.

    Haha. This is a joke mate.
    I'm so tired of this bullshit.
    You really paid for a shout out? Are you for real?
    Congratulations on getting scammed. Haha.
    -
    Natural accounts have 10% engagement man.
    Are you that blind?
    1.5 mil should be getting him 150,000 likes MINIMUM. That is FUCKING MINIMUM.
    -
    Don't listen to anyone here they all talking shit and don't know shit on how things work.
    And by the way - good job by stopping follow-unfollow. Its for pathetic losers. Haha.
    -
    NEVER EVER buy shout out or fucking power likes. Its all bullshit.
    ONLY IF - they have well above 10% rate of engagement.
    -
    All genuine accounts of even public figures have 10% engagement on average even with mass following.
    -
    Grow using the explore page and top post page.
    Its just so much easier.
    All the answers are in the algorithm.
    Learn how IG works out its algo and you'd win every day.
    -
    And stop buying shit from people. They all scam.
    So-called experts my ass.
    -
    PS - I have ONLY 21k followers.
    I get 12,000 likes per post.
    I get 300+ comments.
    Plenty of comments come from verified public figures too. Haha.
    50% engagement bitch.
    All these bitches and 'experts' can't help you.
    -
    Learn the real way.
    Its all code.
    Get to the source of it.
    Algorithm.

    btw thx rockstard112. Great tips yo!

    My tip, on how i reached 7000 followers was using bots. Actually gave me alot of genuine follows and made my page almost ALIVE. unfortunately the bots are all shut down by instagram. There is one FOLLOWEADDER or "FOLLOWLIKER haven't tried them but they seem legit.

    HOW EVER. what i now do to gain traffic is being smart, analyzing
    Which photos do i myself see on my own feed and why?
    yes, the photos that you yourself like alot and interact with. Sometimes i put instagram up and a photo from a friend of mine is on the top, 4 days old. ( wtf??)

    solution. i make questions for my fellow genuine followers. my niche is awareness, mindfulness and motivation towards riches (from inside + riches).
    so every third post i do is questions. interact with your crew!! "what do you want to experiece the most?" "what makes you smile?" stuff like that.

    conclusion: it is fun, it is interesting to know what people value and cherish.. and since everyone likes and comments your stuff every 3 days.. your posts will be on top on their feed! KATCHING.

    10% engagement is not the case anymore, it's around 3% for large accounts

    When you buy shoutouts, the # of followers is directly related to the content. If your content sucks people won't follow. That's why I use click bait when your doing the following, also set your account on private so people follow because they want to know.

    people dont like ads and shout outs so its natural that a paid post gets way less engagement then an organic one. Its just the name of the game. You have to find a way to monetize your followers so when you buy an 60$ shout out you end up making more from either a shop or something that makes money.

    Nope. Timing isn't that important as long as you're posting during the day time when people are awake and not at midnight when everyone is asleep.

    That money you spent , you could of invested in a online spy app to see in your niche who best to scrape to add to your ig account for your bot to gain loads of followers.

    You could of got a really grate hashtag app to get loads of followers in your niche ....

    Wasting money nit good at all .

    Like said study the niche your in but also learn about the socail website your dealing with.

    You should of read loads of money making journeys on this forum before throwing cash away ...

    Sorry not having a go just saying , the money you lost was good money ....
