    This only works for people that post their original/own content (not sure if people on this forum do that, but thought I'd share anyway). For myself, I take photographs of landscapes and share them on IG. I had about 900 followers, just from people I knew etc. and then I received an email and DM from Instagram about two months ago saying that they will put me on their 'suggested user list' for two weeks. After the two weeks I ended up with 37,000 followers, the amount of followers people gain varies, most people will get more than 30k in two weeks.

    Also in the email, they gave me the option to recommend other users to be put on the list. So if anyone on here posts their original stuff I would happily use this option to recommend you to Instagram as well as share some other tips which I think helped me get put on the list in the first place, for maybe a bit of help in return about making money online in general?

    So they asked you if you knew anyone that wanted to be on this suggested list? Bit hard to believe

    Not for people that simply want to be on the list, but people that I think 'deserve' to be.

    Still hard to believe since their instagram and probably have thousands of accounts lined up that deserve to be on the list but whatever.

    I don't really understand what your finding hard to believe? In the email they attach a link which sends me to a page which lets me enter usernames.

    Why not create a bunch of Instagrams yourself then and put all your accounts on their list and build an IG network and dominate?

    Not trying to be rude. What niches do they accept?

    Well they only put accounts on the list that share original content.. To get an idea of the people they choose if you go to the Instagram user itself on the app and see the people they are following, these are the users on the list. It should change weekly and I think every Friday.

    No it doesn't. Go to the Instagram feed on the app, look a the people they are following (There are 191 users atm). These are the users that are on the list. It changes weekly.

    I'd love to try that. I post only my own content and it's city/landscape/nature. Close to yours I'd say. Shall I send you a PM?

    I post original content, too. I'll send you a PM.

    EDIT: Actually I wont, because I dont know how, this forum is so confusing and because you just signed up here so I doubt its legit.

    It's very easy to send private messages, I'm not trying to 'scam' anyone, just offer assistance and hope to receive some back. I would happily send you a screenshot of the email Instagram sent me as well.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by recent? There's basically a list that Instagram have which is updated weekly with hundreds of users on it. When you get put on the list they give you an option to recommend other users for the list, this is what I'm offering.

    Yes they are. There are two places you can see the list that I know of. 1. the people that instagram follow. and 2. When new people sign up they are shown a list of people to follow, therefore you get a lot of followers from newcomers to the app. Also why its called the 'suggested user list' because its suggesting users to the newcomers.
