June 11, 2021


Are you still stuck on the fence about buying Instagram Followers? Let us map out the pros and cons before you decide. 

What started out as a way to share a cache of poorly timed, or perfectly curated, vacation photos has become one of the best ways to market your business. Instagram has over one billion active monthly users. That’s nearly an ⅛ of the entire world population.

The Instagram users are global, coming from anywhere and everywhere, and because the platform deals more with visual content than it does anything else, posts aren’t limited by language or culture. 

So it can be pretty easy to see how a social media platform dedicated to disseminating pictures of your chunky cat, grandmother’s 80th birthday, or a brand new baby has become the go-to hub for internet breakout of small to medium online business.

Through advertising campaigns and cross-functionality with other platforms (like Facebook), Instagram has become a multi-billion dollar revenue stream for your business.  

Pros and Cons of Buying Instagram Followers in Canada, in Australia, or Anywhere Else, Really.

But how exactly do you get your business to stand out above the thousands of Canadian businesses that are already utilizing the power of Instagram marketing? Well, you produce excellent content, interact with your customer base, and get a lot of people to follow you. 
Which can definitely sound much easier than it is. As a new business, just starting up, snagging a good follower base is hard. It takes time, dedication, and near-constant engagement.

Or… you could simply buy Instagram followers to get things started quickly. Buying Instagram followers can be a really useful way to give your business a boost on the social radar, helping to build authority quickly, and continue to amass real followers. But there are some things you’ll need to know before you start handing out cash for accounts.

Pro: It’s a Quick Way to Grow Your Following and Improve Your Brand Image

Only having a handful of followers can be just as detrimental to your business reputation as having thousands of fake ones. So purchasing Instagram followers that already exist can be a quick way to get your new platform off to the right start.

 But don’t forget, if you’re going to have a large number of followers, you’ll need a hefty dose of content to go along with it. Purchasing followers immediately after opening your account is one way to tell the world that you’ve bought and paid for those accounts. So make sure that you’ve got a good amount of content to go along with those genuine followers. 

Con: Authority Can’t Actually Be Bought

Having a decent stack of organic followers when you first launch your Instagram profile or Instagram account can help to instantly bump up your brand credibility. This can be a huge help if your business doesn’t have the time necessary to organically build an initial base- which can take months, if not years. But it doesn’t stop there, you’ll need to ensure you snag some organic followers, as well as fake accounts and bots, won’t be able to engage with your posts, and content that only has a scant few likes, but is backed by 6k followers is usually a bad sign. 

Pro: It’s Basically Social Media Marketing 101

When it comes to marketing, herd mentality has always been considered a foundational principle. As humans, we tend to enjoy patterns and like to follow the pack, especially when it comes to products and services. This is because of the mindset of “If everyone else is enjoying it, we probably will too.” This is called social proof, and it’s very important if you want to reach your target audience and grow your engagement and brand image.

 This is why we spend hours stalking Amazon reviews, searching for the products that seem to be the best value and well-loved by all. Instagram also works off of this principle, as the more real followers you have, the more that you will be likely set to gain. A solid follower base suggests brand and customer loyalty. Ensuring that more potential clients will be interested to know what all the fuss is about.

It’s so rare in these times to find one man with so much wow factor and more rare to find men with similar interest and passion in their life journey as myself . Dan Elliott has been introduced to many in what is now considered as the Terror Dome , a place where many dreams are not deferred they are detoured to routes that lead to dead ends , he comes in full of optimism so infectious that he, maybe with out knowing is energizing those who have ventured where others would fear going with just the right jolt to forge on in the way of helping fallen humanity … His various fields of expertise has helped many in my region and I can only imagine the number he has effected beyond those I know … from day one I knew “ this was a man of kindred spirit “ Dan Elliott is a Gem and adds glimmer to things he touches … I’m a Witness ….and eternally grateful….L.Rashaan RichMay 21, 2022

We'd used some other agencies before, but man, they simply knocked us all over. After being in business for 30 years, I wonder how much more business we'd be doing if we'd hired them earlier.Rebecca HoneaMay 17, 2019
