    So, we're all familiar with the usual follow/unfollow, hashtags etc - but that only gets you so far.

    What's your best tip for building IG pages with money? I've tried sponsored ads with different objectives, but that only ends with 10.000+ likes on the sponsored picture and extremely little followers.

    So - what's the best way? Shoutouts? Ads, with another objective than post engagement/page likes?

    Edit: To be clear. I want to get more followers to the page, and want to do it with money.

    All the best,

    Try to use a bot like Followliker or MassPlaner , and start collecting big names or accounts in your niche , then target their followers , people who comments in and like their posts , this is can help you o get 50 to 80 followers a day !

    Yes, follow/like/comment etc is a way - but I'm asking for ways that cost MONEY. 50-80 followers a day is too low unfortenately. I'm looking for 2000+ followers/day, and the only way to get that is to pay, which I want to do.

    Shoutouts from large accounts + power likes from large accounts (to help get you on the explore page).

    What niche?

    Luxury/Jewlery. So shoutouts is the way to go? I wish there'd be a way with ads, but IGs targeting is so off and only deliver likes..

    Try Facebook ads , use their audience insight tool to get some information about people that you are going to target , 2000 followers a day it's not hard to reach but you must invest a lot of money

    Problem is I did. Super targeted in interest, 18-34 in age (so no 13yr old girls), men, purchased online before etc etc - to get rid off all low quality. It got 18.200 picture likes and 9 followers - and worst of all
    over 40% of them was just 13yr old boys/girls who either didn't set up age/gender or put a fake one when registering. Oh and a lot outside the country I chose to target.

    So yeah.. IG targeting is way off.

    9 only after getting 18k likes?...

    I would say stick to shout outs, promos and trying to get your posts to explore page. That is what works best for me.

    If you don't mind me asking how many followers do you have?

    Hm, yeah. Perhaps Instagram isn't ready for what I'm looking to do right now.
    For someone who never worked with typical shoutouts (just influencers), is there a marketplace that has some standards? I'm not looking to buy shoutouts
    from pages with 2m followers and 300 likes per picture. We're already working with influencers, but that's for brand exposure and not typical shoutout for following.

    Follow/unfollow method you will bring you low quality followers, becouse at last 70% will follow you just becouse you follow them
    For earn quality and targeted followers are 2 methods
    1.shoutouts from accounts with the same niche
    2. instagram mentions in your posts coments with targeted audience

    Buy growth programs and pay per 1k/2k/5k/10k.

    No cure, no pay.

    If I got the money, I would definitely buy shoutouts/power likes.

    I'm in the same situation as OP - willing to spend the money because follow / unfollow / like comment has only gotten me so far. I'm watching this thread with interest.

    OP - things I've tried:

    • IG & FB ads: Had great response to the ads, thousands of impressions / views, but they've translated to very few followers
    • Shoutouts: I've tried buying shoutouts from large pages & I've also traded shoutouts - all in the same niche. Great response to the shoutout, thousands of likes - but few followers (I honestly think shoutouts are a waste of money)
    • Engagement Groups: free, but though they were worth a try. Get a massive influx of likes in a short period of time, which is great. But all of my posts seem to have a ceiling of around 2000 likes. I never seem to go above.
    I have not tried powerlikes, although I believe the theory is sound. I haven't tried because I haven't found a reputable source to provide them.

    I suggest you to make a list of 10-15 pages with a good engagement on niches that you think are relevant for your page. Contact them and try to make a deal with them for regular promotions, you can find pages out there with 200k+ followers and good engagement that will accept $40 for 10 posts. You can check accounts like vicentdiesel_official / jdm_tunedintokyo / lordtimepieces , and try to understand what they are doing to promote their pages.
    I don't think you can grow 2000/day that way but you make a lot of sales with that strategy.

    Then may do your research for your niche and contact the pages with a lot of active followers. That is what i do. Then i test how much I'm paying for every follower i get ($/follower). Could you PM your Skype? I'd like to talk to you

    Yeah, we do work with influencers in our niche, but what we're getting from that is brand exposure/targeted sales. We drive sales from
    many different sources - but right now what I'm interested in is pure Instagram followers that engage with our page. If it result in sales or not
    doesn't matter too much.
