I have been outsourcing the operation side of the business to focus on scaling. I am using manual & providers & managing a few accounts myself via JV
A couple of realistic notes to people who are planning to use manual services.
Due diligence- I have dealt with so many of them, you cannot trust anyone upfront, be sceptical. Ask them about growth chart, their process and snoop around.
Be ready for false promises - For some reason, many IG marketers do not deliver on time, over promises /etc. Maybe, they’ve been reading/ doing a lot of sale courses. ( Tho a lot of marketing courses do focus on BS selling, doesnt fly with me well). Oh, and when they say a due date, learn to lower your expectation to the bottom. Start your expectation from the bottom, and you will not get disappointed
Watch for red-flags:
- I will grow your followers 20 + per day ( unless your account/client is famous & popular niche/good scraping do not dream)
- I never had AC/ action block, even in the manual, you will still experience this. Do not blame the marketer, it is normal. But if they promise you 0 chance of this runaway
- Extra tip: A lot of people are connected from one another, similar to white labelling, a lot of people are just using other people’s service and stamping their price. That is normal, as long as it works who cares.
Will I recommend any of them. No, not yet. Are they performing? Sure, hit or miss per account
I have tested over 7+ providers (150+ accounts monthly)
Good luck everyone
