    Hi,

    As mentioned above I new to the forum.

    I have been lurking and reading posts for some time now. I am looking to gather some advice on instagram shoutouts. I am an automotive photographer and post solely my own original content and am looking to grow the account. I think the shoutout method is the route I wish take. I am not a fan of the hashtag shopping lists that some people I follow use as feel this looks a little desperate for likes, I do have a bot but prefer not to use this as don't want my followers to see in the activity page that I am liking loads of posts as there appears to be no quality control filter with this method.

    So in short who can help, what can you offer, and how much will it cost please?

    ooops just read th sticky, not sure if this needs to go into the "want to buy section so will post there also' please delete this post if breaching the forum rules - apologies.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Steve

    My only advice would be: keep shopping around by DM and Kik. Target the 150k-300k accounts and lowball it. It kinda surprised me how many 1day/perm shoutouts I got for 5-10 dollar which gave me 400-800 followers.

    Lets take an avg account of 200k....thats 5 times smaller than a 1M account, but the 1M accounts have like a 10 times higher shoutout rate....for 1hr!

    Regarding the hashtags I totally agree with you.

    But its totally worth putting at least a few. You just need to do some tests to work out which are the best for your niche.

    Once you have that worked out you can have say 3 or 4 super targeted hashtags which probably will give you a similar return than if you put 30 general hashtags. (and not look desperate!)

    Once you account is getting a decent number of followers and engament you'll start to feature in the 'Top Posts' when people search for a hashtag.

    This will also help to grow your account...

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for taking the time to assist buddy, I'll get in touch with some pages within my niche and contact them directly. Was also hoping someone on here maybe running a car page who could also provide the shoutout at a reasonable rate. Thanks again.
