What is a Instagram feature/shoutout account?

You might heard of these shoutouts and feature accounts on Instagram, these are account that usually have a large following that features other peoples work, either for free or if you pay them to feature your work. Getting your work on these kinds of accounts can be a great way to promote your work on Instagram.

Buying Instagram shoutouts vs Free Features

There will be some of these accounts that are free to get featured on, and you usually just have to tag your image with their hashtag for a chance to get featured or contact them over Instagram. The downside to free shoutouts is that they’re usually really hard to get featured on, there’s a lot of people that want to be shown on these accounts, making the competition quite hard.

The ones you have to pay for are easier to get on (but you have to pay them) but the quality of account that has a paid feature service varies a lot, the problem is like I mentioned above, there’s plenty of accounts with fake followers out there. Both paid & free comes with their good and bad sides.

Instagram Feature Pages

Things to consider

There’s a couple of things to consider before trying to get your work featured on any of the sites on the list.

Is it a good fit?

For example there’s no point in submitting a art post to a Instagram account that only post photography content, if it doesn’t fit, don’t bother. Some pages even have guidelines how to submit your work, make sure you read them so you don’t waste everyone’s time.

Be aware of fake pages

Some accounts that offer (paid) features have thousands and sometimes millions of fake followers, they have bought fake followers so their account should seem popular and artists should be more inclined to order a feature from them.

Be cautious if a page has low quality content & posts, low number of likes on each post (if a account has thousands of followers their posts should have plenty of likes), fake and odd comments on posts. (can be hard to spot) or if the the cost for a feature is really low (I seen a account with 1 million followers just ask for $10 to be featured on their account, getting a feature on a (real) account with 1 millions of followers will cost you 1000s of dollars.)

I only list reputable & establishes pages in this list. But always be cautious if you decide to buy a feature on any Instagram page.
