In today's internet world, you can purchase just about anything, including social media accounts. While many people may think this idea is downright absurd, many content creators and musicians take this route. For some people, it may take years to reach 10,000 organic followers. Purchasing already established Instagram profiles to bypass the slow climb of amassing a social media following can quickly place you at the influencer level. But is it worth it? Let's explore the pros and cons.
There are people out there who are great at growing a social media account for the sole purpose of selling it. They post engaging content often, use the proper hashtags and engage with followers. These individuals are usually great at attracting real followers then selling the account to people looking for an already established audience. That is why the option can be highly beneficial for anyone looking to become an influencer. It can also be fitting for artists interested in making themselves more attractive to brands and music labels.
Another pro is that you can quickly transform the new page into anything you'd like. As an artist, you can flood the page with your music content and change the name, giving it an entirely new identity and feel. However, this can potentially come with its share of issues, which we will explore below.
The biggest con of purchasing an already established Instagram is that you have no way of knowing if the followers are real or fake. Many people buy bots to boost their follower count. This creates a problem for a purchaser because the followers are not authentic. Therefore the engagement will not be. You may notice various accounts posting the same comment on your posts, which often signifies fake accounts.
In other instances, the seller has built a following entirely unrelated to the type of content you will be using the page for. For example, if you are an R&B artist but the page was formerly a flower enthusiast account that only posted content related to gardens, those followers are unlikely to engage with your new content because they are not interested in R&B. So when you appear on their timelines, they may even be inclined to unfollow you.
