In 2018, one of the best ways to build a following organically, besides using Facebook ads, is paying for Instagram Shoutouts. Influencer marketing is only getting bigger and bigger as more influencers realize they can make money with Instagram. Paying influencers $20-$30 to post to their Instagram for 24 hours is one of the quickest ways to build a following. Influencers with big followings are already aware of this and are most likely charging way more than $20-$30 per post.
Find influencers that have somewhere in between 50k and 200k followers, and ask them how much are they charging for Instagram shoutouts. Besides Facebook ads, Instagram shoutouts are the best thing going for up and coming entrepreneurs. Take advantage of this now before influencers start catching on and raise prices.
