Think of the way you may judge a friend’s profile that doesn’t have a lot of followers, or a post that doesn’t have a lot of engagement. It may be hard to admit, but ultimately, we all think the same thing when we see these posts; this person is unpopular. This thought comes from a human behavioral trait called “social proof.” According to social proof, we tend to judge how to behave and what to like based on how others are behaving, and what they like. You can see this in action on every social media platform.
The reality is that influencers with hundreds of thousands of followers often lead lives that aren’t exactly “normal.” And if you compare them with someone who has 5000 to 15,000 highly-engaged Instagram followers, who likely isn’t paying their rent from cashing in on Instagram sponsorships... Well, it’s just way more relatable to the everyday consumer!
It’s actually pretty simple. All it takes is 60 seconds of your time to answer a quick survey (if you qualify) or give Mr. Insta some love on social media yourself. Just like or follow them on three of their social media profiles like Facebook or Google+. Within 24 hours they’ll deliver free Instagram followers to your account, no questions asked.
