I have grown my Instagram account from 2,000 followers in January to almost 8,000 in September! Some people choose to use something like an Instagram agency in order to grow their following, which probably would have been quicker, but I wanted to see what I could achieve on my own as I figured I could always go down that route later on. Had I opted to use a service like Nitreo in helping me gain real instagram followers, who knows how much larger that could have been? It’s certainly something I’m looking into for the future, as are some of my friends looking to make a name for themselves on the platform. Although some people do not care whether their followers are real or not and would rather not work on their content to pander to audiences in order to get more followers. It is for this reason that some people opt to use companies like Influencive to buy Instagram followers and then gain real followers by means of the popularity of the page. Both methods can be effective in creating a larger following on social media.
