Follow and recieve
On Instagram, if you follow people and brands you will get followers in return. I have tested this on three different Instagram account, and sometimes I will get the same person to follow them. Be careful because on the Beyond Today Media Group’s Instagram I got spammed with gift card accounts from following brands like Apple, Microsoft, and many more verified accounts. It may look good that I got 27 followers in one day but if 2 of them are actually real then it does not help. Some of these accounts will like your posts so some are real and some are not.
