Now, we know that Instagram has a strong fan base and that users are willing to pay for the privilege of gaining access to high-quality images and content, so it makes sense that large companies and businesses would want to use them to boost their presence on the site. The way that they do this is by buying large numbers of likes - so that they have a wide network of people who will automatically promote their offers to their followers. So, whether you're a small business trying to make a name for yourself on an exciting new social network, or a large corporation wanting to extend its influence, paying for followers on Instagram is a smart and cost effective way to not only get the most from the platform itself, but to also improve your social proof across the board.
