    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently in an Instagram contest, and I'm looking for ideas on how to make sure I win.
    The voting is done through comments, as the users must comment as to which they want to win.
    The prize is a large sum, so I need to make sure I win.
    Personally, I don't have a ton of active followers on instagram, so that avenue seems out of the way...

    That's where I need the glorious minds of this forum to help me out with any ideas ie: shoutouts, etc.

    I've thought of purchasing comments, but thought there could maybe be another way?

    I think they use a program that automatically choose a winner?!

    No, they just tally the votes in the comments

    Make a couple dozen Instagram accounts and run a comment bot with premade messages.

    You could put up a gig on MTurk and have people comment. Alternatively, if you have a blog or know a giveaway blogger, you could host a giveaway for an Amazon Gift Card and ask the entrants to comment on your post. Both would require small investments but if you are winning a large sum it should not put too much of a dent in your pocket.

    How many comments do you need to win?

    Do you need 100s or 1000s? Because if it's in the 1000s, you may have spend quite a bit of money..
