Is it worth buying Followers on Instagram?

I have the impression that for some time Instagram has been leading the popularity of social networking sites. It is not surprising when organic ranges are cut off very much on Facebook. On Instagram, too, but you can still raise profile coverage and Insta Stories without paid campaigns. How to do it? I wrote about it in the article how to raise the reach of Insta Stories. Unfortunately, many Influecners still buy Followers on Instagram, because it's cheap (100 Followers costs a few zlotys), and they count on fejm and quizzes.

Why buy Followers on Instagram?

Still, many companies don't check Followers. Most only look at the number (number of Followers) or hearts and comments under the pictures. Buying Followers is a very common practice among Influencerek. The numbers agree, business is booming. And here honest Influencers lose, because not every company will check whether 60 thous. Followers are not residents of India or Pakistan, and those honest who do a good job will not be considered in campaigns carried out by influence marketing agencies. It's sad, but that's how it works in today's world.

Is buying Followers profitable then? From my point of view, no. Firstly, because buying Followers reduces Instagram profile ranges (the new Instagram algorithm will very easily detect that there are unfair practices on a given account), and secondly because it is very easy to check if someone bought Followers on Allegro, hearts or even comments under photo. Yes, you can also buy comments under the photo! Of course, these will be comments issued by fictitious zosia1234 accounts and in most cases they will be only emotes (usually hearts or smilies).

Instagram has been successfully removing inactive Followers accounts for some time. If the number of Followers on your account drops, you may find that bots were watching you and IG dug in to these accounts, and now they are deleting them or someone just reported these accounts as fake.

How to check if someone bought Followers?

Many Influencekers will probably hate me now, but I prefer to warn those who have ever bought Followers that they just don't do it. Checking Influencer's integrity is very simple. This can be checked, among others through Socialblade. It is not a great tool in 100% because it has a delay of several days in statistics, but it is easy to verify the account before cooperating with someone.

Below you can see examples of two accounts of known Influencerek - one of them probably uses dishonest ways to obtain Followers.

Dishonest Instagram Account

In the above screenshot you can see very large decrease in the number of Followers. This Influencer most likely uses the Followers application that works on the Follow / Unfollow principle. In the screen below you can see the Instagram account, which honestly acquires Followers.

Interestingly, through Socialblade you can also check the accounts of anyone who has no private settings. If you do not buy Followers on Instagram, then how to achieve success and start earning on Instagram? I write about it in the post how to succeed on Instagram.

      You can't buy followers at all, no matter where 😉

      Exactly, thieves and scammers

        I bought a campaign from them at the beginning of March and maybe 5% disappeared, which is normal.
        campaign, not followers. maybe this is the difference - I'm happy overall

          Do they offer campaigns? Interesting ... what does she look like? Give me more details because I'm curious what is this miracle 😉 Does it work on a follow / unfollow basis?

    Hey 🙂

    How exactly can you check this using Socialblade? Is it about downloading the application or somehow via the website?

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 21 January 2019 / 11: 58

      On the Social Blade website, enter the login, e.g. from the Instagram of the person and display detailed statistics about the account. If you have any problems - write to me at IG or e-mail I will guide you 🙂

      At present, yes. But will it continue like that? We'll see. We are strongly developing our profile on Pinterest (we currently have 256 thousand viewers per month). Unfortunately, in Pinterest Pinterest is not appreciated yet, but we had several campaigns on Pinterest with foreign brands 🙂

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 7 August 2018 / 20: 10

      It is true! Unfortunately a lot of influencers have bought influencers and they still pretend they didn't do it hahaha

    The honest account from your example has a decrease in the number of followers - it's sad 🙁

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 12 July 2018 / 13: 25

      Unfortunately. Instagram is going down to the dogs, which is why I'm slowly moving to Vero 🙂

    Finally I found time to read 🙂 I also wrote about Social Blade and I am glad that the topic is discussed more broadly 🙂

      Hello Ania! It's great to see you here 🙂 Fraud in influence marketing is a river theme ... sad, but remember that they are ONLY people 😉

    I have already heard about this procedure, a funny thing 😛

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 29 April 2018 / 22: 10

      I meet this very often. Unfortunately.

    Unfortunately, socialblade is a thing of the past, I regret it!

      Why do you think so I would love to hear your opinion :))

    And how is it with InstaFame companies that you wrote about in your post some time ago? You recommended these services, you used them yourself, and did it also turn out to be practices through which your Instagram account can be deleted? 🙂 Thank you in advance for your reply and best regards!

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 24 April 2018 / 10: 24

      Hello Ania,
      That's right - we tested this application. As a Social Media specialist, I also need to know about such solutions. We have not recommended the application, we have only shown that such a thing exists. And unfortunately you are right - through this type of applications, the Instagram account can be deleted, so it's not worth the risk! Best wishes 🙂

    Finally someone told the truth about pseudo influencers!

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 23 April 2018 / 17: 56

      You have to publicize such things, because business flourishes, and honest Influencers lose.

  11. Avatar AleksandraNS 23 April 2018 / 09: 04

    Wow. I didn't even know there was such a program. I can see that some girls who have accounts with similar themes after me have 3 thousand followers. And for me a little over 400. Similar topics, hashtags are also such and here there are still no observers. A great post. I will read another curiosity :) Regards!

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 23 April 2018 / 09: 08

      There are a lot of unfair practices, but fortunately there are ways to verify them. It is a pity that many Influence Marketing specialists do not verify this ...
