    I am a bit different than everyone here as I am building my real, personal account. What exactly are "shoutouts" and where do I find a legitimate source for purchasing? I looked in the marketplace and I didn't see anyone offering it.

    A shoutout is when an IG user promotes another IG page, Facebook page or website through posting an image provided by the person who asked for the shoutout. You can get one by contacting IG users directly. You can send them an e-mail if they've mentioned their e-mail address on their bio or you can send them a direct message via IG.

    If you're looking for "quality" shoutouts, you should browse Instagram and if you see an account that you would like to see your post on, send them a private message and ask them if they are selling shoutouts.

    You can build a personal account as easily as a niche account. My personal account has 185K. Just pick a hobby you enjoy and theme the account with your own personal photos.

    Anyway, one gets MUCH more satisfaction having a personal account with a huge following because simply, ITS YOU.

    It's basically them saying your link when they are posting something. You get a promotion from that person which ends up with people from their blog to go and check yours, and luckily you get traffic out of it.
