There are companies that approach instagrammers and promise increased exposure of posts within that account's followers - and it seems to work. Anyone know how they do it?


I saw some model with 1.1m followers. Went to her website page + looked it up in alexa.siteinfo

1.1M followers, top 11m website, most traffic coming from India.

So basically a fake instagram. I think this is extremely true and there are a few real users that make it all worth it.

In this case the instagrammer didn't get any new followers, somehow he just got more exposure among his own, real followers. The instagrammer did not know now how they did it, he said he just posted a normal photo.

Thanks for mentioning alexa siteinfo, didn't know they track individual ig profiles.
