    Dear Community,

    since IG updated its algorithms and policies it got much harder to generate followers and engagement.

    Suppose I am ready to invest 1000$.

    What would be the MOST SUSTAINABLE paid Instagram growth strategy?

    Is it building a digital product that fits my niche and marketing it via IG, attracting followers as a by-product?
    Is it putting up Instagram ads?
    Is it paying for multiple shoutouts from big accounts?

    You tell me!

    Cheers

    im using the imacro follower which installed a few days ago once i got it working ive got 800 followers and 1600 followings, jworks well have it on in the back ground, if i want to like etc and comment i do that manually etc and its free.

    my account will be for a sustainable business and working ok

    can start small and offer a $20 amazon voucher as a competition.

    there are social media experts who can do a paid job too

    Thank you. You are obviously not on top of the most recent Instagram algorithm changes. All follow/unfollow activity is punished. Definitely not a sustainable way to grow your acc.

    As everything in life: "The more sugar you add the sweeter it is" (is a popular saying in my country)

    That means you shouldn't just focus on one strategy, because all of them together work best.

    Main things you can do:

    1. Mother/slave: I'm still trying it, but it works as you build X number of accounts and all of them link to your main account, so in that accounts you repost the content of the main account and do the F/UF thing.

    2. Buy shoutouts, you need good content to that. Good content in your page and good content for the material of the shoutouts as well.

    3. Do giveaways: Giveaway frequently things around 100$, the more you earn the more you give. I don't know if people giving away iPhone X do it legally (because some of them are "celebrities") but they earn thousands of followers when they do such thing.

    This 3 I think are the more profitable and for ALL of them you need GOOD content, so expend money on content.

    Follow/unfollow works perfectly fine.. not sure what you're on about. It's all a matter of setting your timeouts properly and doing other actions in between your f/uf.

    FUF, IG pods, etc. is getting heavily penalized by IG, worst thing that can happen is they shadow ban you: Meaning your engagement goes down and you try to figure out why.

    Don't be foolish people, IG is going to realize that you follow 1000+ people per week on IG.

    What those algos are looking for is strong connections with "healthy" accounts (good engagement ratios) as well as zero indication that you might be automating shit.


    MY ACCOUNT CONTENT IS 100% self produced. Striving to be an influencer you could say haha.

    1 is difficult, I do not think that this goes unseen by IG long-term - what do you think? And will it help to engage real long term followers?

    I love 2 and 3.

    2 is great, obviously, you have to pick the right accounts.

    3 is interesting, however I am not sure whether these followers are going to be loyal. I mean, at some point you might want to stop the giveaway shit, right? And you do not want these followers to leave you - just like a gold digger leaves a millionaire that went broke..

    Well the safest way to do 1 is to create relevant IG accounts, if you sell a pet product, make 10 accounts about pets and promote your main. That's the best way, but the one which requires more work.

    3: You are going to lose a lot of followers after the giveaway is over, that's why you need GOOD content, so you have enough time to catch them and they will keep following you.
