“I bought the 500 followers. Shut my phone off for a bit and when I came back online, I seen I had 100 followers on my notifications. Wasn't too impressed at first, then I clicked on my profile and they jumped a whole 1300, I was convinced it was $5 but then when converting to Canadian it was close to $10. The 1000 followers made up for the conversion to Canadian currency. Would recommend this to anyone”
For this reason, it’s common for businesses to update their featured URL to align with their most recent post. If you decide to add a link, be sure use a link shortener like HubSpot's Tracking URL builder or a tool like Bitly or Goo.gl to keep your profile from looking cluttered. Tracked URLs also help you better understand the amount of traffic Instagram is driving to your website.
To get around this restriction, some businesses will frequently update their website link to send followers to their latest products or promotions — and then refer to that link in their Instagram captions. The problem is that Instagram’s photo feed is no longer chronological, so when a business’ post says “link in bio,” that link might not correspond to the actual link in their bio.
It’s the sad truth that most new Instagram profiles have a hard time getting noticed before they are able to gain a significant following. In some professions, like the fashion industry, models won’t even be considered for hire if they don’t have a certain number of followers. The reason being, most brands want to hire people who are well-known in their field for that kind of work. This can put up-and-coming models at an extreme disadvantage when trying to get discovered.
