I’m in a situation and looking for ways to grow a Food IG.
It’s currently at 6k real followers and has good organic engagement. I need to get it up to 10k followers ASAP, ideally within the next month to enable SWIPE up.
Followers must ideally be tier 1…UK, Europe, Aus, NZ or USA.
I’m open to any ideas or suggestions. If you have a proposal message me. I will post and create content.
I’m interested in Shout Outs, perhaps ads or low level M/S or consulting with someone.
The account is too important to be burned or blocked.
Time is my main problem.
If you have a real branded content I think paid shoutout is the best
You can also try to make some story IG ads
Shoutouts, ads, viral posting and reposting. If time runs out and you need some more followers, as a last resort you can fill up the followers you need with fake followers.
Fake followers are a no go mate.
Thanks for the ideas though.
Any idea where I can find good paid shoutouts as when I’ve looked in the past most pages offering it seem to have very poor engagement rates/fake comments etc.
Gotta network with influencers and hunt them yourself. The actual ‘good’ shoutouts come from the pages you don’t expect them to come from. You gotta contact a bunch of pages yourself and see if they offer shoutouts.
You say that but typically if I do a shout out and 500 people see the shout, only 5 or 10 click through. Even when it’s all done with a good CTA, relevant to my followers and posted with very good looking content.
I’ve also tried dming about 20 larger influencers myself ( 100-500k) most didn’t respond and the two that did one tried selling me an IG course (affiliate link) and the other wanted a huge fee to manage my account rather than to just do a shout out.
Maybe its worth another try but contact smaller influencers? Like 20-100k
Yeah I see what you mean. When I was looking for shoutouts I had 1 in 20 actually reply back to me. It’s a numbers game, some influencers accept shoutouts and some don’t. It’s also a matter of them seeing their DMs and/or emails of course.
Yeah try the small influencers but don’t rule out the bigger once either. Some have nice fee prices for their range of followers.
Just been sending a few DM’s, maybe I’ll get more responses that way.
Good idea, you can still work on other methods while waiting for replies. I suggest writing to at least 100 accounts
I see a bunch of IG accounts posting stuff on Pinterest. There is a sh#t ton of food stuff on Pinterest. Maybe start a Pin account to drive traffic to IG. Not sure what the engagement rate is, but you can use tailwind to post for you (I think they have a 15 day free trial). Spend a day setting it up and let it run for you. Then you can focus on something else… best of luck!
@N00BBY hi there, what you are asking is near to impossible with a 10k or sometimes even with 50k, it depends on your niche and content but you cant make 100$ per week only with one instagram you need more followers and then you can get more shootouts and probably sell with cpa offers or other platforms.
I think maybe you misunderstood. I’m looking to grow, not charge. Thanks for the info though.
