Buying an Instagram page with lots of followers is the first option for some people who want to start their own business or want to promote it. In this article, we are going to review the security tips, cost, and methods of buying an Instagram page with many followers.
These days pages, as well as followers, likes, and comments are being sold on Instagram and there may be many tricks you don’t know about. Here, we would also explain the benefits and drawbacks of purchasing an Instagram page to help you decide more easily.
The Advantages of Buying an Instagram Page
Buying good Instagram pages has definitely numerous advantages which encourage many businesses to do so. Here are some of them:
- Having a noticeable amount of followers from the beginning
- The possibility of already having many potential customers on the page
- The simplicity of attracting the audience due to the high number of followers, considering the principle of social proof
- The high engagement rate in comparison to the newly-made pages
- Higher authority because of the page’s age
The Disadvantages of Buying an Instagram Page
The items mentioned above were the advantages of purchasing a page which might be effective at first. But, it has some negative aspects as well which can have destructive effects on the purchased page:
- After changing the name and theme of the Instagram page, its engagement rate will normally decrease up to 70%
- Instagram may disable the page because of deleting all the posts and changing the page name
- Followers will hardly trust the page after changing its name and commercial purpose and niche
- It’s hard to find and buy a good page among pages with lots of fake followers.
What is the Cost of Buying an Instagram page?
Purchasing Instagram pages is basically done on the black market, meaning that there is no particular place for doing so. Moreover, no specific organization monitors these sales, so the page owners would suggest any price they want.
However, the reasonable price for an Instagram page with 10K “Real” followers is about $500 (at the time of publishing this post). By real followers, we mean that the reach of its posts should be at least 60% of the total number of its followers.
Is it Secure to Buy an Instagram Page?
As well as the advantages and disadvantages mentioned above, there are other aspects which are highly important mainly related to the security issues of purchasing Instagram pages.
Legally, buying and selling Instagram pages are illegal. For this reason, Instagram always considers the person who has created an Instagram account as its owner and wants them to assign an email address to their account. Instagram will use this email address to send verification codes to its users whenever they should confirm their identity. As the result, even if you change the email address after buying the account, its previous owner can get it back by contacting Instagram, and as purchasing Instagram pages is illegal, you have no right to claim its ownership.
Considering all the aspects mentioned above, spending your budget to create a page with quality contents and promoting it rather than purchasing an Instagram page would be much more fruitful.
