Growing your account is a simple concept. The more people that see your account and naturally like it, the more followers you’ll have. Getting users to see your account is the tricky part and is where we come in.
Using your account, we go out and follow your target audience. They see that you followed them, they check out your page, and if they like it, they’ll follow back. It’s basically that simply, but there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work to make this growth scalable into the thousands of followers.
Out of all the methods we’ve ever used, the ‘follow/unfollow’ method is still the only cost-effective, scalable method that guarantees results. Here’s how we do it:
Our team will work with you to define your ideal target audience.
From your account, we will engage with your target audience by following their accounts and get their attention via Instagram notifications.
Once your target audience gets a notification that you followed them a certain percentage will come to your account, check out your content, and make an ‘organic’ decision to follow your account based on what they see.
Our team will then unfollow all of the accounts we have engaged with and repeat the cycle 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This keeps your following count low, but your follower count high.
You might have heard of other methods out there, but this is the simplest, most consistent way that we’ve gotten results for all of our clients.
Yes! Our agency is fully operational even after Instagram’s latest updates. We’ve adjusted our processes so that we still operate within Instagram’s limits while still providing results. Instagram growth is a moving target and we are constantly adjusting our process to stay ahead of the curve. If you would like to learn more about the updates, get in touch with us and we’d love to discuss further.
Below we’ll dive deeper into other questions we get asked by potential clients to help set your expectations and clear any misconceptions.
- What If I Used Another Growth Service?
- What Is An Instagram Action Block and How Can It Affect My Growth?
- How Many Followers Should I Expect?
- How Fast Will I See Results?
- What If I Have Less Than 1,000 Followers?
Under our guidance, your account will be 100% compliant with Instagram’s policies, so the chances of being banned using our service isn’t going to happen. Action blocks can happen, but we’ve never seen a client’s account get banned while using our services.
The only times Instagram accounts are at risk is if you do one or more actions:
Running outside restricted tools on top of our service or have multiple agencies logged into your account
Following and unfollowing mass users on your own while signed up with our agency.
We stay within the boundaries Instagram provides, so you don’t have to worry. However, we aren’t responsible for what you do with your account while using our services. It’s up to you to follow the rules just as much as we do.
Unfortunately, we can’t provide an exact number or guarantee for new followers. There are just too many factors at play both in and outside our control and we can’t predict human nature. After all, we aren’t forcing users to follow you, just tapping them on the shoulder and hoping your content speaks for itself.
Our agency strives to see 200 to 1,500 new, highly-targeted followers per month on average.
These are just averages. We have some accounts growing 1000+ a month, but others only growing 200 a month. There are a few factors that contribute to this:
First, it’s important to note that account growth depends on a number of things out of our control, including:
- Who your target audience is on Instagram
- How good your content is
- How often you post
Secondly, if we do not need to fix your trust score, you can expect more unique profile visits and natural engagement to increase over time. Having a trusted account is a huge bonus when you start working with us.
Lastly, we’re an organic growth agency and as such, your results are directly tied to the quality of your account and the niche. Think about it: A supermodel will grow at a different pace than a local car dealership for various reasons. It is very important that you are constantly producing and testing quality content.
We understand that a lot of users would like to see pure, organic growth on their accounts but it’s important to keep your expectations realistic and understand that some growth issues are completely out of our control. With that in mind, we’ll always do our best to achieve results no matter the client’s trust score, niche, or content.
To help us with our job, we ask that you have a clear, targeted content strategy that will resonate with your followers. While we can bring the followers to you, it’s your content that keeps them engaged and active.
Again, it’s hard for us to put a specific number on this. We’d love to tell you that you’ll see X number of followers in only X number of days, but that would be dishonest. And if you’re looking at other agencies that are promising specific results, you should steer clear because they’re either lying or buying your followers and it’s unclear which is worse.
Typically, it takes anywhere from a couple of weeks to a month for our clients to start seeing results. The longer you stick with us, however, the more results you’ll see. Slow and steady wins the race, and it can often take a month just to warm up and prime your account for explosive growth.
During this initial month, we’ll be tracking and finding your target audience on Instagram. We’ll also be testing out your account to determine if it has any current action blocks or at-risk for any. This safe and slow approach helps us build a strong foundation for future success.
We are 100% compliant with Instagram’s policies. This keeps us and our clients safe from the wrath of Instagram’s moderators and algorithms. That being said, you’ll still see results when you use our services, you just won’t have to put your account at risk like the other guys.
Absolutely not! Your new followers will be real people. Every single person who follows you actively chooses to, because we only target people who would actually like your brand and the content you post—we’re simply getting your profile in front of them. A real person has to make a human decision to follow you back once they see the follow notification on their phone. Fake followers do not follow accounts back and are likely removed by Instagram over time. We’re going for long-term, real growth, and that requires we follow real humans that will organically engage with your content.
