Things You Should Know Before Buying Fake Instagram Followers

By on May 2, 2019

Instagram is a fun online world that has grown from leaps and bounds amassing gazillions of active users from across the world. It is one of the fastest growing social media platforms that has the potential to make a person famous overnight and reap monetary benefits as well.

This is why many renowned bloggers, vloggers, and even big brands have resorted to buying followers on Instagram and ultimately attract traffic on their pages and become a public image.

Buying followers on Instagram is a great idea but it comes with a few checkpoints. Before actually doing so, one needs to know how ethical it is and how one should actually be doing it.

Read on the space to know the things you should know before buying Instagram followers.

  1. Buying the ‘Insta followers’ is very easy

Trust us when we say this! The rule of thumb for getting the required fame and profits on Instagram is- higher the traffic, the better the benefit. There are many services that work for helping you out with more followers on your Instagram profile. Some of these provide around 1000 followers for $10 only. A lot of retail brands follow this method to increase engagements on their page and increase their popularity. This also helps them in attracting more buyers at a global level.

  1. Genuine followers build credibility

Real is always better. The kind of growth one witnesses when the appreciation comes from the real-time followers is inexplicable. When it comes to big brands, legitimate followers enhance their credibility in the eyes of the world. Most of the followers bought online are bots with a username that add no value to your profile. We are sure you wouldn’t want to let go of or ignore such credibility!

  1. Brands of every cadre buy followers

Do you get amazed by the millions of followers on the Insta handles of your favourite brands like Nike, Puma etc.? Most of them buy followers as it is a part of their marketing and engagement strategy. The same is with the budding bloggers and influential people of Instagram. But the problem with buying the followers is that the engagement factor slowly recedes. Since most of the followers are bots that can’t really type, falling in the trap of getting more followers is not always a great idea. Social tradia says recently new brands prefer to buy an Instagram account from other influencers in their industry instead of buying fake followers.

  1. Number of followers do not decide the engagement factor

The marketing strategies of big brands have taken a turn nowadays. Big brands no longer want followers for the sake of it. They rather look for more comments and likes on their posts and videos that hint towards an increasing engagement factor of their brand. Due to this, the trust of onlookers also increases for the brand per se thus adding to the brand’s overall reputation.

  1. Buying followers is a different type of plagiarism

If the main agenda behind your purchase of followers is increasing engagement factor, it wouldn’t work! People can very easily spot it out when somebody has bought followers for the sake of looking famous. It rather leads to lost credibility and ultimately decreased user interest in your profile.

Buying followers for your profile might not work in the same way you want it to. There are a lot of pros and cons associated with it and you need to weigh all of these before actually stepping into doing the same. Nevertheless, it is a marketing gimmick nowadays but can never beat the credibility of organic followers on your page.
