You most probably found this article because you were looking to buy “real followers” on Instagram. People that are not bots that will like your pictures, interact with your post and buy your products and services.


I have great news for you, you can actually buy real followers.

The only thing is that you can’t buy them with money, the currency applicable in this kind of trade is VALUE.  Before I show you how to buy real followers that will bring you good money, I will tell you what will happen if you buy followers with money.


First, it’s important to note the distinction between the explicit act of buying followers and the more loosely defined practice of Instagram automation.


Instagram automation can refer to the act of allowing a bot to like and comment on your behalf. Instagram automation is also pointless and sends signals to the Instagram algorithm that you are doing something wrong which result in your page being blacklisted. Don’t do it!


Buying followers on Instagram, on the other hand, is exactly that. You link your account to a service, make payment, and watch your audience grow.

It can be quite cheap, the price range is within $2USD for every 100 followers. But you get what you pay for. In most cases, that’s bots and inactive accounts that have been taken over by the bot


You can find more expensive and “real” options that charge upwards of $1,000 for 10,000 followers. Those services maintain active accounts that will interact with your own. This also does nothing for you, because these active accounts are most likely not interested in your content and when Instagram algorithm hacks this, you will get no engagement or interaction.


Some tools will follow users on your behalf in the hopes that they return the favor. You’ll be asked what kind of accounts you want to follow based on things such as location, hashtag usage, similar accounts, and gender. Then after a predetermined time, the bot unfollows anyone that didn’t follow you back. The same thing happens here, no engagement or interaction plus you get blacklisted.

Why you shouldn’t buy Instagram followers


When you buy followers, you get a numbers not followers. These numbers won’t like any of your posts and they won’t leave any comments. When people see your page, they immediately notice that your followers are fake or how else can you explain a page with over 100k followers with an average of 100 likes?


You put your brand at risk when you buy followers. If you buy Instagram followers and your real customers find out, can you expect them to trust you?


There are more important things to track than the number of followers you have. Click-throughs and engagement (Likes and comments) are two big ones.


Here’s a formula to do a health check on your Instagram page:


number of Likes + number of comments / number of followers x 100 = engagement rate


That metric will serve as a legitimate check on your Instagram strategy, letting you know if your target audience is connecting with your content.


I know you are thinking, so how can I get real followers?




  • Create a plan: You may be tired of reading this but it’s the truth but you need to create a clear Instagram strategy. Decide on your business goals, target audience, brand aesthetic and your unique story. These elements will make people fall in love with your page.
  • Content: You have probably heard the phrase “ content is king” whoever said this told no lie! Share quality content, inform and educate your audience, entertain them( Dance, crack jokes, share comics and memes).
  • Promote everywhere: Mention your Instagram account on other social networks and forums that you belong to. Preach it like the gospel.
  • Hashtags: This is very tricky because most people do it wrong. Using wrong hashtags on your page just because you want likes can be counterproductive. Always appropriate hashtags to target your relevant communities to your business. Create your own brand hashtag too.
  • Get your business on the Explore page: The simple hack to getting your business on the explore page is to get lots of likes in the first 5 minutes of your post, especially from other relevant and popular accounts. It sends a signal to Instagram’s algorithm that your page is relevant hence a lot more people would be interested in seeing your post.
  • Follow relevant Pages: Follow similar page, especially your competitors and influencers that are relevant to your target audience. Some of them will follow back when they see your page and this will help you reach more people.
  • Be consistent: People say to be consistent you should post at least once a day, I say post at least 3 times a day. Instagram is a jungle that rewards hard workers.
  • Write great captions:  Good captions cannot be overestimated. Speak to your customers, put the most interesting words in front of your sentence, include emojis, ask questions to drive engagement.
  • Contests and giveaways: This is the simple hack to user-generated content and nothing beats it.
  • Instagram stories: This feature is the best thing Instagram has done after business accounts. You can beat the Instagram feed algorithm by reposting all content to your Instagram stories. It’s a simple but very effective hack.
  • Instagram Ads: I advise people to mix organic and paid marketing to achieve great results, this applies to Instagram. Advertising will help you reach more people especially if you already curate great content on your page. Start slowly by promoting posts with the most engagement on your page.


Finally, Check Instagram analytics regularly to see whats working and double up to achieve growth. If you do these things in three months you will get quality followers that will engage with your posts, buy from you and refer.
