    Hello everyone

    I have a personal Instagram acc with 33k Followers. I know it sounds a bit stupid but for my job it's really important to have a lot of followers. My question now is how can I get more famous?
    I tried already a few things, like FL and Instagress. In the beginning I did the thing with follow/unfollow, comment, likes. Now I do just likes and start to build other accounts who mention my main account, but that goes too slow. I get like 2.2k followers in 1 month and 1k average likes.
    I know that shoutouts are not so effective, some pages with more then 1 million followers did already some shoutouts for me and it was not so good.

    I saw that a lot of famous people buy followers, likes and comments. Do you think that is good? Or what is the best method that work from your side? My budget is 500? a month.

    Would be great if someone could help me.
    Thanks

    Either post amazing HD photos with original captions, or you need to be attractive, or you need to be rich and post photos of your Lamborghini and Ferrari.

    Anyway...with 500€ a month you can hire someone to help you create high quality pictures. At the end of the day, buying followers wont help since they are all fake.

    Best way is to have great unique content that people will like and that will help build your account.

    Try more shoutouts from similar accounts that get high engagement.

    Then you should be able to get followers easily, there's thousands of accounts that offer free shoutouts to beautiful people.
    Just tag them or DM them.

    I said you need to be attractive, not a model, not all models are attractive lol.

    You did something wrong. Shoutouts can actually be very effective if done right.

    What kind of image did you use for the shoutout? And what text?
    Are you sure you didn't buy a shoutout on an account with fake followers/engagement?
    Did you reach out to an account yourself and asked for a shoutout or did you order the it on a website?

    Don't buy followers, don't buy likes, don't buy comments.
    Buying mentions might work, though.

    Anyway... above mentioned options aside, have you tried paid Instagram advertising? Not sure if it will work for a personal account though...

    Buying followers, likes, comments can be good or bad depending on what your goal is.

    Im guessing that you're into this for the long run, so I wouldn't advise buying followers, likes, or comments
    Thats because your page is going to look really fake, 100k followers with only 15 likes & 9 comments...the engagement is going to be really horrible.

    I also suppose that it wouldn't hurt "if" you were consistent with buying likes & comments for EVERY picture you post.
    Then nobody would probably be able to tell the difference, it would "look" natural...long as your budget doesn't run out.

    No matter what you decide to do, I'd willing to help (although I strongly disagree with buying fake likes/comments/followers)
    If you have 33k followers already, it will be much easier for you to grow and hit 50k, 75k, 100k and have everything you want organically.

    Find large accounts that are similar to your feed. If your feed is a lot of makeup, find makeup accounts that do shoutouts. If you do a lot of outfit of the days, find an inspo account. I have a 60k+ inspo account myself and have done shoutouts for many successful accounts that grew a lot.

    time flies haha

    ok, thank you very much for these hints. So, I did a typing mistake in my first post, I have 23k followers.
    Most of you guys here think the best way is to buy shoutouts on the right instagram accounts, but where can I find these people who would do shoutouts for me? Just search big instagram accounts and DM them?

    Do you really think that buying followers and likes is stupid? Because if you have a lot of fake followers, likes and comments, people think you are famous, follow you and like your posts. I have a couple of friends they do it like this. If I buy 100k followers on igerslike I would pay 120€ once and 4€ for 4k likes every post, that's not so expensive and I would have 123k followers with 5k likes per post. People would follow me and like my pics more, you don't think so?

    And what do you think about mass mentions, and which service is the best? I found a mention tool on igerslike but it's in beta, it says it's better to use it just with a fake account.

    If someone wanna help me with that or have a great solution you can pm me your skype.

    I would advise against continually buying likes and followers.

    The top "real" accounts on Instagram all have one thing in common: they all post great content. Focus on posting the best content and people will follow you naturally.

    Put your budget towards good shout outs to get recognized, and reinvest the rest of your money back into your photos.

    you can also try interlinking your social media accounts if you haven't done it yet, make a small army of twitter accs and funnel your followers to ig, if that's your end game, but you'll also have your followers on twitter, maybe twitter followers are of lower value, but twitter is easier to game, plus you can spam the living shit outta it without living in constant fear of getting your instagram account banned :), you can put the whole thing on autopilot, buy a good bot, PVAs, private proxies and you're good to go

    bot's one time fee is around $100, 100 twitter PVAs (from Russia with love) are around $20, 35-50 shared private proxies are around $15-25/month (allowing 2-3 accs/proxy)

    scrape the followers of model accs, with 100 accs, you can follow upto 100k users per day, that's a lot of eyes on your profile with your ig link in it and even if you average only around 5% followback rate (highly possible), that will be 5k followers on your twitter accs daily as a "side effect"

    That's a very interesting method, do you do this personally? Are links in Twitter bios hyperlinked?

    the only thing you should be doing with a 500 euro budget is buying shoutouts ;)

    I think having 33k followers showing that you are on the way to getting famous,use your own hashtags and use HD pics,you will get more famous.
