Growing your Instagram followers is not a joke. You need to be cautious about everything that you do or post.
People with millions of followers didn’t just happen. They make sure that they are maintaining healthy habits and avoiding the stupid mistakes that every ordinary Instagrammer makes.

This has been a controversial topic over the Internet. We have seen celebrities buying followers and growing their reach but the truth is to avoid buying followers from any random sites.
However, there are certain sites that provide followers that are real human so you can use them but again, you should very cautious and think twice or thrice before going for it.
Here’s why you should avoid buying followers:
- You have to pay money which doesn’t sound right.
- Most of the followers are ghost followers (But not all of the sites do that).
- Too many bot followers may get your account terminated.
- Your engagement rate will reduce drastically if you have too many ghost followers.
- Instagram doesn’t appreciate buying followers.
So, avoid buying followers and take your precious time to actually connect with people and try to grow your followers organically.
Using low-quality images will make the viewers lose interest in your posts. So try to upload the highest quality of the image.
Moreover, Instagram automatically compresses the image quality to the lower version of its original quality. So Instagram will compress and reduce the image quality of the low resolution to its lowest version.
