Over the last week or so i've been experimenting with paying IG to promote posts on one of my accounts for the sole reason of growing said account and so far (and not really surprisingly so) it's been disappointing with only a small handful of new followers gained. now this hasn't been a high budget thing and it more to test the waters and see if it could be worth investing some more funds in, so not a big deal. Now i've been experimenting with a car photography based account and i've noticed targeting english speaking 3rd world countries results in a lot larger audience for the same money spent focussing on 1st world countries. for example 4 euros on a 3rd world targeted ad resulted in a post reach of 6500 accounts and 8 euros spend on a 1st world (near identical) targeted ad resulted in a post reach of just 1500 accounts Now obviously 3rd world countries are worth less than 1st world, presumably because they are less likely to buy shit. But this I think is still a good market to continue experimenting with purely to pump up follower plus engagement with real accounts (i've noticed that for some reason poorer countries are more active on my accounts) provided of course I can find a way too get enough followers per ad for it too make sense. So have you found success in promoting your account via IG ads? and if so would you mind sharing you results/experiance? NOTE: Now I dont need to hear stuff like "you should just do shoutouts/botting/EG groups/whatever" I know all that lets keep it on topic on IG ads.
