Chances are your mom always told you that friends can not be bought. However, current advice says you can and, most importantly, you should attempt some economic persuasion. Many celebrities and politicians understand the practice and have reaped the rewards of buying followers. However, it is not only the elite who have access to millions of people. Anyone with a social media account can take advantage of having impressive statistics. The reasons you may want such impressive stats will vary from person to person, but let’s look specifically at Instagram, and how it could benefit you to increase your social presence by buying some active followers.
Perception and Traffic
A big reason you may consider buying Instagram followers is that your account is often judged by statistics. Potential followers will look at current numbers to decide if an account is worth following. Think about your own decision making of whether or not to follow someone. Accounts with low numbers somehow seem not as interesting or intriguing. The more followers you have, the more attractive your account becomes to others. It is a version of wanting to join the popular crowd, and being afraid of missing out on something that many others obviously think is worth having. Of course, each new follower brings with them their own unique number of followers, who you will also want to entice. If new followers actually like what they see and engage with your material, their followers will be able to see that, and potentially join you as well. So remember, the increase in traffic to your material due to the bought followers is only the beginning. Buy as many followers as you think you need to accomplish your goals, then rely on your engaging content to keep and attract the wide range of possible followers you have just exposed to your material.
Many people may only care about having more followers for purely social reasons of prestige and status. However, many more are using platforms like Instagram to put out a message or a product for economic gain. Some are hoping to begin to make a profit. While improving the perception of your material and increasing traffic benefits users with any of those reasons, there are more specific benefits to those wanting to start or grow a business. If you already have an established brand, obviously more traffic to your account gives you more exposure and more potential sales. Even new followers who may not be interested themselves may pass the word along to others who are. Having a large number of followers makes your brand seem established and trustworthy to all those new evaluators. On the other hand, if you are just launching your own brand, you understand how critical it is to get that product exposed to many people as quickly as possible. Buying some followers may be just the boost you need to start the coin flow. Check out your own Instagram account numbers and imagine the personal benefits of seeing a jump in followers.
