Thus it is important that if you do buy an account you do not let that information out in the open. Another problem with buying an Instagram account is that quiet a fair amount of followers in such accounts can be inactive followers, or ‘insta bots’. Such accounts are useless to a company as they are not real people who can buy their product. Hence a thorough research needs to be done before buying an account. Moreover buying an account can give your company an initial boost but you need to follow-up with creative marketing strategies to keep your followers engaged and not have them lose interest. One negative side of buying an account is that mostly the followers you have aren’t even potential customers, they may just be randomly following an account and never be consumers. These people will not be interacting and commenting on what you advertise and will just be followers.
