    Ok,

    So we know some stats from instagram like the engagement rate that vary from 4% - 2%

    But based on experience, How many followers I can get if some account with 1 Millions followers make a shoutout for me?

    Consider these things:

    1. Consider the 1Million account in the same niche.
    2. I'm not looking for an exact number just a range of x% to y% or x,xxx to yy,yyy
    3. I'm talking about a typical shoutout of a nice picture with "follow follow follow this account"


    Thanks.

    I once got a shoutout from an account having around 5% engagement rate. The shoutout got me around 1% follow back. I know its not great, but thats how it turned out for me and yes it was in same niche.

    1% of 1M is 10k. That sounds good for me.

    Lol good luck. You will be lucky to get 1K.

    My old account was in nature/animals niche and I already had 50K followers.. I got a shoutout from 3 million animal page and got 800 followers in 24hrs.

    1st and last time I ever paid for a shoutout.

    My current account had 270K and when idiots pay me for a shoutout they gain 50-150 followers lol. Same niche.

    I used to buy 1hr shouts from 2M, but now I buy from 4M for 15 mins. They deliver me about 1200-1500 in 15 mins, it even makes the app crash sometimes. Buying longer than 15 mins makes no sense for me personally, as the momentum is really in the first 10 mins.

    Same niche ofcourse and killercontent.

    You never get your moneys worth from shoutouts on big pages. Usually better to promote products rather than trying to get followers.

    In my opinion:
    It depends on the likes per pictures(and if they are real) and if its the same niche.
    So from 10k likes per picture, you can expect 10-500(or a little bit more) new followers.
    It really changes from type to type, so without detailed info we can't tell much, since some Instagram users, who like that niche are most likely to follow another account, then some users who like some other niches. Really depends.

    Hmmm.. that sounds pretty interesting, and you pay the same price for the 15mins. than a full shoutout?

    Have you tried to buy shoutouts to sell affiliate products?

    If I convert the price of both accounts to a per-minute-rate, they are exactly the same (60 vs 120 per/hr, 2M vs 4M). So I don't spend any money on the 1hr shout anymore. When I take 1hr from the 2M (15 mins is not provided with this one), it gives me about 800-1000 in the first 15 mins and ends up at 1800-2200 after an full hour.

    The 4M gives me 1200-1500 EVERY new posting for 15 mins....so effectively it gives me 5-6k per hour.

    But I have to say that the effectiveness of SO's are really niche-related. I just bought a SO's from a niche-related account with 260k....even our carbrands are the same and the content is comparable.....first 15 mins gave me........7 users. WTF? Lol? Worst buy ever, ktxbye.

    Usually worth your money, people who get like 10 followers from a shoutout from a 1m+ page is just doing something wrong lol
    Most times you see xxx-xxxx followers gained, and if you monetize it smart, you actually profit from buying shoutouts.

    Ok Answering my own question and just for learning purposes:

    I couldn't test it with a 1M account, but with a fair big account.

    My results are:

    Following ratio: 0.2% to 0.5%

    That means a 1 Million account will get you:

    1,000,000 x 0.2% = 2k <<New Followers


    Again, maybe this vary a lot since depends on the type of shoutout, the time, how kickass your account is, how good is the image of the shoutout is received, how log it takes the 1M account to have its followers,

    Etc.

    I'll post more of my little research later

    I have a few accounts on Instagram. Most on Babes and adult niche. I dont recommend you buying shoutouts in big accounts. You never get what you pay. Its better to pay someone to build you an account with real followers rather than paying for expensive shoutouts.

    There is a really good app called SOCIAL AUDIT PRO which audits accounts and tells you how many real followers they have. Now you see there are lots of accounts that are over 500K but dont even get 5K likes and who knows if the likes they get are real.

    I manage accounts for people and own a few. For example now I am building an account for a client that I created it a month ago and I already passed the 30K followers, all real. Engagement 1.5k likes to 2K likes. I charge whats fair but as I say its better than payig for shoutouts.

    There are accounts that charge up to $600 per post and they dont care if you win or dont win followers, they charge and thats it. There are just a few accounts that really commit and put good effort. People dont understand that if they make their customers win, they win too.


    Hope this helps you.


    Best luck

    I sent you a PM.
