growth hack Aug 29, 2021

If you're looking for a way to grow your following on Instagram, there are a ton of different things you can do. From buying followers to paying for ads, there are many ways to get more followers. Today we are going to chat about one of the most effective ways to steal your competitors followers and why you should do this.

It's important to have a large following on Instagram if you're looking to grow your business. But how can you get more followers when your competitor has such a large following already?

You might not be able to get all of them, but you should be able to get some of them.

The strategy involves mentioning your competitors followers in your post's comments.

How? By mentioning them in your comments under your post and tagging their username in it. This will increase the likelihood that they will see the post, and if they see it then they will most likely check you out and follow you.

It's a great way to grow your account organically by targeting people who already follow someone that's popular on Instagram that has similar content to you're own. They're already interested in what that person has to say, so why wouldn't they be interested in hearing what you have to say?

Mentioning someone else without tagging them is called a shoutout and it can also help you gain more followers as well as engagement on your posts. But tagging them (mention) is even better because it increases the chances of them seeing the post as well as giving them an incentive to follow you back because they'll want their username mentioned in one of their posts at some point too!

You can do this manually, or you can do it in bulk in seconds and a few dollars with a mentioning service:



If you are doing it manually, you simply go to your competitors recent followers or related posts' commenters, copy the username and go tag them in a comment on the specific post you want them to see. 

Automatically in Bulk

We recommend and use an Instagram mention service such as . Simply create an account, add funds, then you can order mentions in bulk (5k+ minimum) and enter in your competitors account. They will grab the recent 5k people and mention them in comments on your post. We like the Instagram mention service best because it's fast, easy and cheap. It's also a complete smm panel which is fun to toy around with.


This strategy works best when you're talking about a specific product or service, not just something generic like "check out my Instagram". If you want more followers on Instagram then this is a great way to do it!
