    So on a whim, I ran an ad on IG & this happened -

    upload_2016-10-19_12-43-11.png

    Keep in mind that I normally get ~2K likes per photo. I captioned the ad with something like - "Like this photo? Follow @me for more"

    BUT that seems to be the problem. I haven't found a good way to convert those likes on ads to followers. If you wanted visits to your web site, calls, etc then it's no problem. Select the right button & place it on the ad.

    Why don't they have a "follow" button?

    Anyway - tips on how I could have converted these 10K likes to more than a few hundred new followers?

    I spent very little on the ad - I'm sure I just got lucky - but I plan on doing it again. I've been following / unfollowing anyone who liked the ad, but I'd rather just get the follow when they like the picture.

    How much you spent on ads? pretty curious about that. Never tried that before, but it looks good. Yeah, too bad that there is no follow button ;/

    I think I know way.....well the people see your post on section where the people see the posts from accounts that he already follow......is logic that almoust all users don't even think to follow you becouse he think already follow you
    In another words, ig ads is not a good ideea to gain followers guys..maybe just to promote things, products etc

    Yeah converting these are a bitch from just likes to follows. If they had a follow action other than a like action, IG accounts would cost a shit ton less.
