    Someone is buying my female friend (a small fitness celebrity with 11k followers) 500 followers from time to time. She has/had excellent engagement with 1k+ likes every post and 30+ comments. What do you recommend doing?

    She is getting a lot of real followers daily too so going private would be a pain in the ass. Using a bot to block the fakes seems like a huge risk seeing what's happening to botted accounts lately and she has never used any bots or apps before. Manually blocking thousands of followers is impossible...

    If you have not created more than 4 - 5 Instagram accounts from your home IP, then it should be ok.
    PM me your account i will check it out.

    This can work too, but would you mess with that, when the account has only 200 - 400 real followers?
    I would rather create story, post & link to new account.
    Yes, by this the person will loose some of the followers, but that's the part of learning...
    On the other hand it can help his / her new account to gain some small snowball effect.

    There are some services like that, but most likely they produce likes from shitty accounts → so in long run it can only hurt your profile.
    You can try the “Power Like” method → Where big accounts come to your latest post and like it.
    There are services of this type, but make sure before you buy it, to check all the profiles and their:
    Followers : Engagement rate (To check their authentic engagement & followers i use HyperAuditor → if you register there you can get for free 1 profile check. not affiliated), latest 9 - 12 posts (if atleast few of them went viral → that's the goal of this method) and last tip, i suggest you to not buy cheap power likes like those for $50 / $100 / $200. My own great experience started with power likes what cost more than $500, but i believe that you can find $250 - $500. (i was in hurry + it was reference from my friend)

    I wouldn't bother with these services → until you mean “Power Likes” more answer above.
    if you want me to answer your question in more depth just hit me up here or DM me.

    Send me your profile i will check it out.

    For the ads:
    I've tryed them like 1 - 2 years ago only for $5 to see if it can help me in some way.
    Well it did not help me, i guess it was only for $5 if i would spend more money, then i would see better results, but i rather pay some influencer other page the same ammount of money and have bigger outcome than from the ads.
    Here is why, when you pay some influencer to share your content, then his audience already trust him. (short answer)
    On the other hand, when you post ad, the people what see it, they don't feel any need to check it out, why should they trust you, you propably will want to sell them something sooner or later...

    Here are 2 results of my $5 ads:
    obrázek č.2.png obrázek č.3.png
    obrázek č.4.png obrázek č.5.png

    You can name the new account same as the old one,
    just on the old one add number and you have your premium name on your new account.

    That should be all,
    Have a great day!

    I would like to help, unfortunetely i don't know any way what could stop these fake followers come to her profile.

    I can give you only these tips what i guess you've already tried.
    If these bots come all at once then, she can screen shot them (to know what are bots) and then go into her followers and start unfollowing them manually.
    If they come throuhg a day, then it is bigger pain, she has to go through A-Z / 1-9 and check all profile, since she has 11k followers it would take a lot of time.
    So i suggest you to either buy a program what scrapes her followers (it should not effect her profile in any way) the program cost around $50 one time fee, it is great for ghost followers too (not affiliated) OR
    find some online service and they will use bot to only scrape her followers → then they send you list of names and she will only type name into search and remove them manually. I've seen this service cost around $50.

    Did she try to think who could send her these fake followers?
    (Stupid question, but still i rather ask)

    Have a great day!

    Contact them and offer to pay them to remove the followers. Who knows. Might work.

    I believe you will need to block the fake followers if you want to recover your account. Never buy fake followers :( ouch.

    Yep... Blocked with the help of an android app "cleaner"

    Lets see now.. I had 1600 followers and now I am down to 450-ish. Haven't posted anything yet after it... I'll update it again once I make a post on IG.

    Yea, you're screwed.

    Literally buying engagement and followers never works.

    It will only do harm and it's a hassle to fix.

    I've seen user accounts I run drop 90% engagement after botting for a few months (conservatively)

    I'm still unsure of the 'go-to' move with botting... but maybe someone will figure it out.

    Actually i disagree, nowadays what matters most is engagement.
    Todays companies knows it. They've been multiple times screwed up by someone who had 100k (or les - more, doesn't matter) followers and got only 30 likes per post.
    So they started focusing more on engagement. They rather invest their money on advertising into someone who has 5k followers but has high engagement.

    Small tip:
    Most of the time - i rather buy shotouts from small inflluencers with high engagement (They most of the time don't know what to charge for promotion yet. So you can use it into your advantage when you negotiate price) ; (Also their followers feel like they are “friends” with the influencer, cuz the influencer responds to all comments, DM's... So followers are happy. And if the influencer recommends some product / service then it has to be really good - and it actually recommend them their “friend”. You are going to rather buy something what recommends you your friend than seeing ad on facebook, ad on big page (even if it's the same product / service).

    PS: i hope it make sense, i haven't slept for 2 days, so i apologize if there will be any missunderstood.


    Have a great day!

    I actually have a different strategy with this. It's ONLY for high value niches, with which you have ties in already. Start a page with ZERO engagement, and buy likes and comments on every post. Sure, it's not cheap unless you have a great follower connect, but I did a little test with it, and with other engagement strategies, I went from 0 likes to 80 likes in 3 hrs. Obviously bad with like 5k followers, but still better than 0. and I get a new organic follower daily, while following 0 accounts and not posting in like 2 months. Eventually if you post enough good content the real followers will overshadow the fakes. This takes tons of effort though. For your situation, why not buy more followers and likes and just go with completely false engagement?

    It's not worth of Time & effort & money.
    There are pages like Hypeauditor (not affiliated) what can see your authentic engagement / followers / interest of your followers etc... (there are tons of pages like this one)
    So if you are planning to sell shoutouts, make a sponsored deals, sell the instagram account etc... then i definitly not recommend this strategy.
    People are no that dumb as used to be about social media, they check nowadays (most of them) your engagement, followers, sponsored deals, what interest have your followers etc...
    I rather invest my time to buy someones account and grow it (if you don't want to start from 0 followers).

    Have a great day!
