    Hey guys! So right now, I'm trying to promote my cousin's instagram account. Why? I'm trying to get her to be somewhat "instagram" famous. I'm a guy, not famous-material so I went with promoting someone else. She's moving to Cali soon, so that'll do some good in the process I believe.

    My ideal tactic plan is to get her somewhat known, get her a fan base, and then get sponsors/drive her to youtube/vine/twitter/etc. Of course, I'm planning to invest in this.

    Do you guys think it's possible? Any ideas/tips? Starting off - I have her close to 800 instagram followers and 700 twitter followers. Most of the followers were bought/inactive, so It's not really doing any good. 0 posts on twitter and instagram right now.

    Any help at all is much appreciated. I'm not looking into bots, just yet. But feel free to suggest some stuff. Thanks :D
    Or if anyone would like to work together on this, let me know what you can contribute.

    Haha, she has a bunch of good photos (or at least, the types to be popular on tumblr), good editing to appeal to teens I suppose. We just haven't uploaded them, trying to find the best way to go about this. I'm avoiding spamming hashtags so at most I'd put in one hashtag, but I don't want to make it seem cliche at all.

    Well you need to start posting content for both of your instagram and twitter accounts. You can find imacros scripts here on BHW for favoriting tweets and following people. As for instagram you need to invest in a bot to start following/liking. I guess you can do all that manually

    To start post daily quality content on both accounts. You'll need to consider buying a bot to boost your followers.

    Thanks for the responses all :) I'll start adding content 1-3 times per week. I want to spread everything out. Not sure what the main content theme should be just yet.

    Find larger niche related accts and buy promo from them (shoutouts, RTs, mentions). This will be your best bang for your buck and gain you real followers and engagement.

    You should not waste your time hashtagging pictures on Instagram, i honestly dont know why people say "Tag your picture(s) with #hot #girl #selfies "love" and so on, that is just a waste of your time.
    Now to help you i'd suggest that for Instagram you should buy a bot, two bots that works like a charm is Instagram Mega bot & FollowLiker but since you only are going to promote ONE account i'd tell you to purchase Mega bot instead of Followliker.
    And a + is if your "cousin" is good looking, i mean... both guys and girls would rather follow a hot person then a ugly person ((That's the truth.))
    You SHOULD aswell buy shoutouts, but DO NOT buy one from shoutout pages, they are just a waste of money, instead lets say your cousin is fit and likes to workout then you should buy a shoutout from a fitness account, an account with 200k+ followers would easily give your cousin a couple of XXXX followers.
    And make sure that she post(s) several pictures a day, BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOOD DO NOT SPAM OR UPLOAD SEVERAL PICTURES AT ONCE!
    A good advice is to upload every 3-4 hours because then the last photo is gone from her followers timeline.
    And do NOT give up,you wont make her Instafamous in a week, it can take a looooong time, ofcourse you can reduce the time if you got some cash to spend.

    Yes, it is possible.

    Just ensure that you keep posting high quality interesting pictures with lots of popular hashtag and frequently follow other popular people.

    You could also have a look at some of the creative and innovative services in the BHW Marketplace which provide you real looking Instagram followers which like and comment on all your pictures as that will help you in looking popular and eventually bring more and more people to follow you and like your pictures.

    You will defiantly need quality content before you will get any real traffic/followers. Try to edit some really pretty photos and use a ton of hashtags. Gain a genuine following. Also, many people will follow back if you follow them.

    I agree. I would only use one hashtag maximum, which wouldn't do much good. I would never spam hashtags. I would never say my cousin is attractive, but she does get a lot of great attention from both genders at her school.

    I don't really believe in shoutout pages, I think it's a good idea to buy a shoutout from a good account though. I'm just not sure where to purchase/any reliable places, I'll certainly look though BHW.

    Thanks for your response! Very helpful, and I promise I won't spam photos haha. I think I'll average my posts to be active but too bothersome. I won't be giving up, I've actually been thinking about this for a while. I will be having cash to spend, just not sure how I'll be spending it. But I do plan to spend money to invest.

    I never planned to post daily, but I just want to take everyone's opinions on account. All feedback that seems reasonable is actually very helpful! :)

    I've got original high quality pictures covered, well at least those that appeal to teens. I'm interested in that, I'll look into that. Feel free to send some links my way. Thanks!

    For the most part, I have a few genuine followers. I've done some F4F. I know about posting already, I just want to figure out my plan before I start.
