-this is his principal account, there’s no big account from the same niche in his list of following
-He doesn’t seem like using F/U for his growth
-I didn’t want to show his username because he may be a member here and he wants to keep his accounts for himslef
My question is :
Is this something achievable !
Without F/U or shoutouts ?
There are countless ways to grow Instagram pages, and from the amount of posts it wouldn’t be impossible for them to have grown the account through a combination of getting lucky/knowing the algorithm and hitting the explore page consistently.
At the same time, unless he’s faked his engagement, it could have been grown through giveaways. Especially when big enough influencers team up with agencies, some giveaways can yield up to 100,000 followers in a week (the regular ones the Kardashians do are testimony to this).
Otherwise, it could be by any method of drawing in external and targeted traffic. Bio mentions, Instagram ads, shoutouts, email campaigns, cross pollination of audiences from other social medias etc. As long as you can reach a specific audience (inside or outside of IG), there are ways to drive them to instagram profiles.
I seen accounts grow the first hour 6k(not me), The fastest 20k I did was under a week.
Real followers. Called shouts – paid or own network. Also some accounts via timing, goodluck and one hell of viral content can get 20-30 k first months without shouts and done organically. These often have help with ER groups. F/u would never-- NEVER – produce these anymore. two/three years ago one could grow 10k-20k first month via follow recent followers but ER would be crap.
