    I call this a loop giveaway/shoutout , i don't know if it has an official name yet. For this to work you need a sizeable instagram account (i think 5k+ should suffice) , plus the method is blackhat :p I'm not a native so bear with my english.

    It is basically a giveaway and the winner is your own alt account. Suppose you have 10 accounts in travel niche all doing follow/unfollow (and have all unique users between them) , the users acquired via follow/unfollow are very much likely to follow your other accounts that are in the same niche if you provide an incentive to them. So a fake giveaway is a very powerful incentive.

    Lets see it step by step -

    1 - In this post i'm giving away a cannon dslr (works good with travel, lux niche) -

    [​IMG]

    I'm just showing this account as a demo but the text and images are something that i would actually use myself.

    Full text for those interested -

    Code:
    EXT head to ----> @ilovebhw
    .
    .
    I've partnered with some of my favorite travel Instagrammers to give one lucky follower:
    * a Canon DSLR
    * a lifetime subscription to Adobe Lightroom
    
    It's the perfect travel photography and editing package!
    .
    All you need to do is follow these simple steps:
    1). FOLLOW me.
    2). LIKE this picture.
    3). GO TO @ilovebhw and REPEAT the steps on every account until you arrive back here. (You should have liked all the photos and followed all the accounts by the time you make it back here!)
    4). For a extra bonus, COMMENT your top bucket list destination + TAG 3 real friends! For an extra bonus, LIKE my last 3 photos as well!
    *Follow ALL of the accounts and make sure your account is public to qualify. Ends on 07/12 at 12 pm EST. Results will be announced in the caption of this photo on all accounts within 24 hours of it finishing! Winner has 24 hours to claim their prize. OPEN INTERNATIONALLY. International accounts may be responsible for shipping charges.
    *This is in no way sponsored, administered, or associated with Instagram, Cannon or Adobe. By participating, you confirm that you are 13+ years of age, release Instagram of responsibility, and agree to Instagram’s terms of use.
    2 - Post the exact same thing as above in all the accounts just change the tagged users i.e on your @User1 profile you tagged @User2 , so in @User2 profile you should tag @user3, and in @user3 profile you should tag @user4 , so on and so forth and in last profile tag @User1.

    3 - Announce a giveaway winner in the caption itself or upload an image of the user and write a caption that - x user won our last giveaway. lets name the winner as - donkey. Don't choose a profile which just have a username (no pic) and has zero followers and never uploaded anything. The winner (donkey) always have a profile pic and bio and he/she every post once in a while.

    Donkey should also comment on the giveaway post as well as the post which declared that donkey is the winner

    FAQ -

    1. How many followers do you gain with this ?

    . Well exact number fluctuates but the max i've gained is a total of 3k followers with one loop giveaway between 7 accounts in 24 hrs (accounts were 30-40k).

    2. How many profiles of mine should do this loop giveaway ?
    . I would say 7-10 profiles have worked well for me. I once did 20 and users got annoyed and stopped midway or something since they do have to go to every profile and follow,like and comment on all of them. So try to find the sweet spot yourself.

    Mod Edit: No

    It's a well known "method" (gimmick, really).

    In some countries this will land you in trouble. If this goes viral, competitors can request an audit and you'll have to buy the camera and give it away for real or face some shit.

    actually they can't , as long as your alternate profile is real-looking and they can't request an audit since you aren't a brand and this isn't administered by instagram -
    Code:
    *This is in no way sponsored, administered, or associated with Instagram, Cannon or Adobe. By participating, you confirm that you are 13+ years of age, release Instagram of responsibility, and agree to Instagram’s terms of use.
    Plus i'm not doing it in a way sunnyco clothing did it, only one user is promised to win an item not all participants.

    i'm still not getting your point, i agree its not new , fake giveaway exist since the beginning its just a new way to buff up all your accounts. plus all those users spamming with 100+ accounts get away with promoting free iphones, even big pages do it more often now, why do you think someone will audit you ?

    The fake giveaway thing has been on the mainstream media. It's not a method by any means.

    Giveaways work for some niches. Fake giveaways work great for getting followers (for a short time) and/or a free product to keep yourself.
    Now a days, everyone knows that you'll keep the product with a fake account, or give it to your friend.

    If you are a blogger, or run a business - giveaways can make your account look spammy or crappy.

    Apart from that, if you really, really need to change it up, this is a great way of doing it.
