    I have a decent sized (40k+) account in the luxury goods niche but have been branching out into other niches as well (including the humor niche and dating space). I have been following one account which I thought was legitimate but now I'm not so sure. They have 106k followers and get between 1k-2k on most photos plus a ton of people tagging each other in the photos and posting relevant comments. A few others have less likes but there is one post from a few days ago that has only 80 likes and no comments (it's advertising their snapchat). This seems like a red flag to me but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Their instagram handle is getheartbeatapp

    You can usually look at the accounts followers accounts to see if the accounts are fake. If all or most of the accounts have around the same number of posts and followers/following then they are probably fake, you can also scrape their followers and send the DMs and see if you get any responses from the accounts. You may have better luck in the humor niche, but I could not make any money in it.

    Thanks for the advice. I am not really looking at the humor niche to make money, I'm looking to build a follower for a service I will eventually be offering. The humor niche makes the most sense. They are a potential competitor so trying to get more information.
