Does buying followers still work in 2021

There are a number of reasons people might buy followers. Influencers, for instance, can often get paid more for collaborations when they have a higher number of followers. Brands, businesses, and thought leaders might want to seem more reputable by having a bigger following. They also might be trying to hit the 10,000 follower count to access the swipe up feature.

But let us admit something this followers are mostly FAKE.

Fake followers are profiles on social media that are only created to follow other profiles for boosting their number of followers. The fake profiles don’t belong to a real person, but they make it seem that this profile has a lot of influence.

It’s the number of followers you have and gain.

You can buy Instagram followers. There are plenty of cheap services available that allow you to buy 1,000 followers for as little as $10 USD.

But you’re only paying for a number.

Many of those followers are either bots or inactive accounts, which means they’ll never engage with your posts.

Fake followers are created either because they’re managed by users whose only goal is to get followed in return, or because these accounts are sponsored by services that sell followers.

The purpose of having a large following on social media isn’t to have a vanity number to be able to talk about — at least it shouldn’t be.

By growing your Instagram following, you’re finding new people who are interested in your product or service and want to hear more from you. Fake accounts can’t do that, and it’s almost impossible to truly buy organic Instagram followers
