    I have heard good and bad things with buying instagram shoutouts on big pages, to me it looks like it has a good return of followers but it can be quite expensive on some pages. I was just wondering if anybody had a general idea of how many followers you should gain per $10 spent on a shoutout, or something like that. Also does anyone have any tips regarding what to look for in accounts you want your shoutout in. (Im a general newbie with shoutouts) Thanks

    Look at the engagement rate i.e. like to follower ratio and comments to follower ratio.
    A normal ratio, like to follower would be somewhere from 3-5% and above, comments to follower ratio should be 0.1% to 0.2% and above.

    Look at ratio between likes and followers. It's pointless to buy shoutouts from pages with low engagement.

    Works best if you account is atleast 10k+ followers.
    Pointless to buy shoutouts for anything less than 5k, will barely get any followers.
    Average I get is about 5 followers for every 50 likes the post gets.
    5000 likes -> 500 followers.

    Very rare case if you got 500 followers with just 5000 likes.
    Bcoz I bought shoutout from 1.4m page 18k+ likes got only 300 followers.
    I'm 200% sure his engagement is real...

    Well obviously depends on niche, and second of all, read the tips above ^
    Don't buy from a shit engagement account, 18k likes for 1.4m isn't so good...

    Exactly. The post about your account will remain on the provider's account for limit that you two have agreed upon. For example if it's a one hour shout out then he will give you a shout and later one delete that post after 60mins.

    Yep that is how it happens. Sort of pointless in my eyes but there are some that go for that sort of thing.

    It's not that pointless when 90%+ of a post's engagement happens in the first six hours.

    There is a lot of resources available on this forum, just search around. 2hr shoutouts are best because after 2hrs engagement drops and people's feeds are full of other posts. Any account that has over 2-3% engagement (followers to likes ratio) is considered good by me.

    Just google "Instagram Shoutouts", you will see the best websites to buy shoutouts up top.

    See this question arise a lot but honestly it's very hit or miss. You can never tell how many fake followers/likes an account gets.
