By the same principle as the social proof factor that we’ve mentioned above – when people see that your content has lots of real interaction, they’re way more likely to follow your profile. In short, given that your profile looks popular, many people will follow you to stay up to date if they like the general breadth of content you put out.
Them seeing that others are already all over your posts is akin to a validation mechanic that ascertains in their mind the fact that your content is worth their time and attention.
On the more technical side of things, when you get free Instagram views, it helps you bump your content up in Instagram’s priority queue. Ultimately this allows you to get into the famed explore feed and reach a broad new audience with your posts.
All of this, in turn, leads to lots of new followers – which then leads to more views and likes that boost your content’s visibility – and the cycle goes on.
However, the days of buying thousands of followers, likes, and views and then raking in big dollars through influencer outreach are long gone. In today’s world, there are lots of tools available to brands that can help them figure out what percentage of someone’s following and activity is fake or botted.
That’s why you need free views and interaction from real people! We’re talking about real users who frequently use Instagram and actually have something to do with your niche of content.
