    Hey, so I've never properly used instagram and I'm completely new to IM. A friend of mine is working on setting up a company and is planning on selling physical products (fashion) in an e-commerce store and various other third party sites (Amazon, eBay etc.) but he'd of course have to get his brand name out there. He's asking me to partner up and manage the company's social media (non-existent at this point) and create a real online presence.

    I've considered setting him an account up and buying followers strictly for image. However, buying an account with real followers and trying to grow it while driving sales through IG seems infinitely better. It's going to be a while before he's ready to launch so I'm not exactly pressed for time and wouldn't mind browsing around until something good comes up.

    Quick newbie questions:
    Can I change the IG username?
    Is there some sort of way to guarantee that the account will be ours and someone won't claim it back via customer support/email/recovery or something along those lines. I don't want to put many months/years effort in into just for it to end up locked/banned.
    Should I expect followers to plummet after buying it due to change in content?
    I know it's highly variable but what would you say a fashion account with 50k followers with low/average engagement would cost?

    Thanks in advance for any attempts to answer my questions or any advice.

    Yes you can change the username and everything else. Only buy from trusted sellers in the marketplace, thats also where you can find prices.
    If you have plenty of time of course you can just grow your own from nothing.
    Theres loads (prolly too much) of info about IG on here so keep reading and use the search.
