    This was a big question that was on my mind since I've joined the community.

    I wanted to hear from most of you who have used shoutouts to grow and spread your accounts exposure:

    How effective are they?

    How much did you pay?

    How many followers (engagement) did that user have?

    How did exchange work? (ex. did you give the money first, then your service was recieved, via paypal/kik/somehwere else?? etc.)

    hopefully maybe we can have enough information to average it all into some kind of basic statistic for instagram to help future users who may be planning on buying shoutouts. Or used to help users who are debating on spending their money via other methods to grow their accounts. Thanks guyssss :)

    Mmm you have to be careful because there are loads of people out there with instagram accounts whose followers arent real. If you are looking to create a presence on instagram, there are loads of useful articles here that you can search. If you do everything correctly you will have great success.

    Not sure about a percentage. Think it depends on how good your blog is

    That being said, Niche targeted shout outs definitely increase engagement. If you're a fitness blog getting a shout out from a big fitness blog you're going to get more views than if you're getting your shout out from a taco blog
