How to be an Instagram “Influencer” Overnight

Post by Mark

Want to be an instagram influencer? Nowadays buying fake followers, likes and even comments takes only a few clicks of a button. So when I read an article on fake influencers on mediakix last week, I thought it would be worth sharing since instagram influencers are a pretty big thing in Kuwait. The ability to buy followers and engagement so easily now is making it harder for brands to find authentic influencers to deal with which in return is effecting legit influencers as well.

To make things even more complicated, there are support groups of a sort that make it even harder for brands to figure out if the engagement is real or not. Say you want to be a travel blogger, you could join one of these “support groups” which include other travel bloggers and then whenever you post a picture the other travel bloggers will leave comments on your photos and you would do the same back whenever they post a picture.

What I found interesting about this specific article is how they used around $300 to create and build a fake instagram account, and then got brand sponsorship deals. So if the whole influencer situation facinates you, check out the article [Here]

    Ironically, the fake followers of so called ‘influencers’ are probably more sentient than the real followers. What type of person follows an ‘influencer’ anyways.

    The primary question for me is how much do these ‘influencers’ really influence? I mean people know that they are paid to do what they do, so is there any credibility?
    Seems they are making hay till this fad shines

    I always wondered on how these fashionistas have hundreds of thousands of followers and only like 10 comments per pic
