I've never done much on Instagram and its all new to me. I've been looking up on how to grow my following and I must say the bots scare me because its obviously against the Instagram rules and you could get banned which I do not want to happen.
So instead I started to do a little test. I done a short 1 min video doing a giveaway and in the giveaway I told people that I would give them one or my products if they done the following...
1. Followed me
2. Tagged a friend
I done some Paid Instagram advertising to this video and yesterday I spent $30 and gained about 30 followers from this.
Some people tagged loads of friends and some only 1 or 2. I didnt get that many comments maybe about 30 to 40 in total over this few days.
I was in 2 minds weather to keep this ad running? I didnt know if all of a sudden it would turn into a snow ball effect and it would get tones of traffic?
Maybe it would have?
But I'm not sure if paying $1 for 1 follower is a good thing or a bad thing? Its very expensive dont you think? Maybe I'm wrong and I should have kept this add rolling? Can someone give me some advice on this.
