$20k is a lot, but spending around $10k is worth it especially for a business, you will notice exponential growth in followers. people will follow you just coz you have a sexy blue tick and expect follow back from you so they can brag that a dude with a blue tick is following them.
I've noticed this on twitter.

Verified offers that sense of security / authority more than an unverified account.
But I would never spend 20k to get it to be honest.

No, just how to build trust.
Oh ok.

It depends on the kind of account or page you're running. The Instagram page of an ecommerce website doesn't need your face bragging or anything.

There are types of pages you would need to make personal posts, show your face, do some videos. Over time you gain trust from your followers, I know some pages run this way.

It is 100% worth even $20k, but there is services here that do it for $5k.
Your account has to meet certain requirements too of course.

I always think that this verification in social media serves as the submittion of that this person is not a fake, because he/she provides all the documents which confirm that he/she is really he/she. In my opinion, it's not overhyped but just was created for the safety of fans. All of them try to find their idol on social media and always face various fakes. I believe that of course there are some celebrities or people who just do it for nothing, just because they wantto show their advantage over ordinary users, nevertheless the vast majority does it because of the reason which I pointed above. Just a safety measure actually.

Spend that money to grow naturally so that you can get verified. That way, the $20k goes to growing your channel.

There are situations where people prefer to get verified quickly, though. I can see that.

No one spends even a cent for verification. People spend 2k or 20k or may be 20 million only for stealth based verifications.

a blue checkmark strengthens trust, and there everyone decides for himself whether it is worth the cost or not

What are your thoughts on social media verification? People pay upwards of $20k to get that blue check but is it overhyped? Or really worth it.
Total waste of money because if you already an public figure and an recognisable person your account will auto got verify by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram..

i personally say i know why spend so much money for just an Blue tick instead i prefer an Blue Jr.vip batch which i already have and i am Pretty satisfied :D

Lol doesn't everyone know the trick to get verified? Get press release done and source your Instagram. Maybe they patched it.
