    Hey Guys/Girls,

    I am looking to do purchase some shoutouts in the near future but before I do I'd like to learn how I can maximise my chances of getting followers from these shoutouts.

    So my questions are:
    What kind of things do you put in the picture that you give to the person giving the shoutout? Is it just a niche related pic usually or do your put words/inviting phrases into it?
    What sorts of things do you write in the caption?

    Cheers.

    You need to provide a picture that relates to both the shoutout accounts profile and your profile (which is why you need to have similar niches). You should provide a high quality picture that will make people look at it and read the caption. Caption basically needs to be something like "Follow this person for more awesome pictures".

    Good question. Surprised more people haven't answered. Are you an actual brand with products to promote or are you a reposting type page?

    Yeah, I'd like to know more about it. I'm in the market to buy shoutouts too. Just sent 4 emails to different accounts in my niche asking for quota. Have gotten 2 replies and the price isn't too bad. Now I need to figure out what kind of caption I want, because "Go check out this page" sounds too corny.

    Hey what niche are you ? Let me give you an example their are some niches that no matter what page you post on you will get good followers.

    For example if your in the Luxury niche, get a really good luxury home picture which everyone loves, make a caption like ,

    You plug your name in as much as you can but not in a way which is spam the example i showed works pretty well. If you need to get shotuouts let me know

    Use Hashtags and use HD images.

    This is one of the many ways I do it as well.

    I usually always start off with a question.

    If you read a lot of psychology books, it'll help you word your caption in a way that will make users want to visit your page.
