    Hi guys,

    Just a quick tip.

    Don't buy shoutouts. Why?
    Think like this: You're going to buy a shoutout for $50+, it will get you 150 followers extra. If you follow people from that same account you wouldve bought the shoutout from for 2/3 hours you get that 150 followers EASILY.

    If you're too lazy to do that and want to spend $XXX on shoutouts go for it, this is a mistake I made early on.

    Have patience, don't waste your hard earned money.

    Have a good one,

    Messiah

    I find Shoutouts are usually used best for eCommerce websites that use Instagram rather than trying to gain followers like you have said.

    This is what works for me:

    Get more followers - Use Mass Planner or Follow Liker

    Get more sales - Buy Shoutouts

    Is there anything else, really? Seems to be the only thing that reliably works.

    Shoutouts are cool only if you know how to buy them..
    You need check a profile deeply to see if everything in that account is legit.
    Check engagement and all and then buy from them.
    Shoutouts are always cool to get some quick traffic and sales if you know how to do it correctly.

    I laugh about every thread from you, please keep them coming they are so entertaining.

    You think you are the Messiah of Instagram and so wellknown to the biz. Sadly you don't know anything. You make it even worse with every thread you start. :D Do you start such threads, because you're jealous that you can't do shit and see other people doing well with shoutouts? Huh, this is sad :(

    150 followers from a 50$ shoutout? Where do you live? :D Maybe from one of your accs, or from an acc that does follow/unfollow. LOL. I did a shoutout some days ago, from an account with just 100k followers. The account I did the shoutout for, was losing followers constantly. The photo from the shoutout was nicherelated, tho the buyer is a model, that doesn't had to do anything with my niche. The account gained more than 1000 followers, just because of this 24 hour shoutout and without any organically growth. And THIS, without even being in the same niche.

    By the way, you even proved that you don't know shit about shoutouts. Why? Do you think, people that follow after a shoutout, have the same value as people that follow after you followed them? LOLOL. People that followed after a shoutout 1. Saw your post 2. Liked the post 3. Went to the account of the promoted acc. 4. Followed this acc. Now guess what? THOSE followers are hundered times worth more than your stupid followers you gain via follow/unfollow, BECAUSE, they will interact with the account in the future, as the shoutout has shown.

    The fact is, that you just suck on IG and all your posts are completely BS! I don't even want to know why, maybe you bought shoutouts from fake acc's or stuff like that, but that's your fault. I just proved to everbody, that shououts are worth every penny. What is your proof that shououts are useless? I guess all you have are your empty words. Shoutouts are the only thing, that are worth spending money on regarding IG. Especially when you use the shoutout as an AD, its the best possible way. But I guess you should better rely on your own thinking and keep posting such threads. :D

    It all depends on targetting and where your shoutout happens.

    If Lewis Hamilton promotes your car sales on his feed brand you'll drown in sales.

    If Lady Gaga promotes a SEO ebook it won't sell a copy.

    What's the 5 S's of marketing again? Segmentation, Sex, .....

    Nope you are wrong you cant always follow users from a brand account it does not looks good. And if you really receive only 150 followers from a $50 shoutout then you are dealing with a dead or inactive account change that asap.
