    Here's the game plan...

    I'm going to open up a new Instagram account. Immediantly, I am going to inflate the follower count. Nothing too crazy, but I'm going to start off by purchasing about 10k. IMO, that would be the minimum to make a project like this work.

    Once the fake followers come in, I will begin the tedious process of following/unfollowing. My goal is to gain 1000 legitimate followers using this method within the course of a week. These will be my primary targets.

    I'm going to upload niche-related quotes/pictures regularly, and build the profile up to appear as a completely natural page. I'll probably also buy some comments and likes to help with this, but hopefully by this point I will be gaining some legitimate engagement to help the profile seem real. I will also mention related profiles to help build up the engagement.

    At this point, I should have 11k+ followers.This is where it becomes make or break. I will personally reach out to similar profiles in my niche asking them if they are interested in paid shoutouts to help increase their social media visibility.

    I'm hoping I can spark some decent discussion with this post. I'm anxious to hear if anybody else has tried similar methods, and what results you had. I certainly know there's money to be made on Instagram, but since this is a completely manual approach, I feel like there is some major potential here.

    If this works, I don't see any reason why I can't rinse and repeat the same process with Twitter, and open several of these accounts all bringing in $$$.

    Acutally im doing something like this. 1500+ followers atm. Some of them are fake and some are real(most of them are real but i can't say real number). +100-250 daily followers with following/unfollowing and some fake from addmefast etc. As I said, most of them are real. I will start to promote(don't know what atm) when I reach 5k+. I wish You good luck with your method :). Be optimist and use brain, then it will work.

    What are you going to do with the engagement rate lol? People will see the low amount of likes(compared with the amount of followers) and realize your followers are fake.
    They won't buy a shoutout, if they do, they won't buy one again.

    I like to use bots to boost egagement metrics. It is more costly to make your own engagement boosters, but it is worth it in the end if people are gaining benefits from subscribing to your account, like engagement back, etc.

    I mentioned in the post that I would artificially boost everything to increase the "engagement". The ratios will appear as legitimate.

    Just wondering... Have you personally tried this method? I value your criticism, but at the same time, I would like to validate the authenticity of this claim.

    Honestly, I'd suggest to skip the fake followers.
    It just sounds as too much of an investment with not so great ROI.

    I don't mean to be discouraging or something, do it if you think you will bank at it.

    Best of luck to ya!

    I haven't tried it personally but it's just simple logic. You can boost everything in your account but once you sell a shoutout those fake followers will not follow the buyer nor will like their post.
    Just don't buy fake stuff, be patient growing your account and you'll see the benefits.
