hello everyone.
ive been growing my account for a few months manually and im currently at 41k
(1,000 - 4,000 likes / photo)

i've read some threads on giveaways that are a few years old (hence this thread, wondering if they still work)

so what i want to do is post a fake giveaway.. nevermind the niche, nobody is going to turn down a potentially free iphone or something..

to enter the giveaway they must complete a short survey which id be getting paid for.

im wondering how effective it is and is there a chance my account could get banned?

would love to hear anyone thats tried and succeeded/failed at this.

Thanks, Jordan.

So you want to waste months of hard work for some pennies ? your account will not get banned unless a lot of people report it but you will lose your followers for sure

the thread ive read said he says the surveys give him between $1-$10 per survey.. even if 100 people do the survey thats a minimum of $100.. not pennies.

and why would people report/unfollow? as far as theyre aware its a ligit giveaway?

thanks for your response, Jordan

they wont know its fake.. i will do it as a normal legit one would.. only difference is noone will recieve anything. 90% will forget after theyve filled it out anyway. 5% will just assume they didnt win and the remaining 5% will get annoyed and assume it was fake.. 4% of that will unfollow. (based on 100 surveys completed)
a loss of 16 followers a month (if i post a giveaway once a week) is peanuts.... i am doing a fake giveaway.

Does it have to be a survey? Why not an email submit/verify offer? Those convert much easier. I ran a few giveaways on my website and have a CPA offer tied to it that's an email submit/verify free offer and it gets me a few extra dollars here and there. The only difference is that I'm actually giving a prize away and the money earned from these offers go towards that.

I run these giveaways not to make money solely but to build my list.

I would recommend looking for an offer that isn't one of those survey types where the person has to do a trial offer to complete survey. Those are major turn offs and if I were you II'd focus on finding an offer that's free but pays you to collect valid emails for them. Someone would be much more willing to sign up for a completely free service WITHOUT having to do a survey or provide their credit card info to complete an offer.

thanks for your reply.. i would actually give away something but i dont have anything to give away haha... if i were to get enough money i will start doing proper legit giveaways... and could you link me to one of these email verify websites? basically i want to make money and not get banned.. keeping as many followers as possible. im not even looking to get rich just a little something for now.

really? double dipping lmao sounds great.. is it a fake giveaway youre doing? if so, how has your followers reacted to this? wouldnt mind hearing more as ive made no money from this account and starting to feel like a chore doing it all for free.

also could you link me to the website youre using?

thanks, Jordan

This method is over saturated. I can tell you from experience that even with 41k followers you will make hardly anything.

You can make so much more money using other legit methods.

fair enough, how much is 'hardly anything' though? im not looking to get rich straight away, just a little bit for now for my efforts and invest back into insta

and what would be 'other legit methods'? ive been approved on OGAds this morning if thats a decent way? just dont want a chance of getting banned haha

thanks for your reply, jordan

Giveaways are so MySpace. Even legit giveaways have a ton of new followers only to lose about 90% within days, and the rest after 1 week.
Plus, they'll start DMing and commenting about who won, what happened, was it me and if you don't reply your real followers will look at you funny, like you're a sleaze bag, etc.

You want that and have the time? Go for it.
