    I need to grow my own iG account in terms of followers/engagement.

    I've tried out IG ads, the whole liking/following via igerliker or even using apps like crowdfire are becoming slow - I've hit the following limit of 7.5k and I have to wait a little while to unfollow etc.

    liking doesn't do much, people will follow but because so many have the unfollowing app these days its not long till you get unfollowed because you didn't follow when they did.

    Question is if you had $1,000 to spend on your IG account to grow its following, how would you do it?

    Honestly, it's ALL about viral material these days.

    Dip a pair of Yeezy's in a bucket full of melted dog poop - post it to IG.

    It's close to ~$1,000 and people may actually watch it/repost it to their IG's and such.. then again, I'm just spitballing lol.

    (Also, I don't mean actually use Yeezy's and dog poop, just think outside of the box).

    I agree, everyone is playing the lik4like, follow4follow game and also reposting viral videos that have already been rinsed out. I've tried them all, yes they will always work but the impact isn't there anymore.

    Brb purchasing a pair of fake yeezys ^_^

    Honestly, with Ye's latest interview, that would probably go viral. He made himself look foolish.

    You don't need to bot to be successful, make your own identity.

    a part from the obvious advice of being different and unique, that is already the reason why I'm on 40k I want to throw in some money to speed up the process as I need to see 3 digits and not 2.

    You could try to advertise at Facebook and linking your Instgram account. Most people who have Facebook also have Instagram. I am not sure if Instagram Ads are a good solution at the moment.

    That would make conversion less with the 2 step process from facebook to instagram then to follow.

    as I said above I've tested IG ads solo - trying to portray a rich life style, I got 25 followers from $3.
