Instagram followers

Have you bought followers to kickstart your Instagram account? Then watch out because the Instagram watch dogs are coming after you!

Instagram has decided to ‘punish’ accounts that have bought followers, and likes, harder. In order to do so,The social media company has already developed tools for this purpose.

Have been working with Ken and Michelle at FML marketing for the best part of a year now - they're a fantastic team. We've launched two new websites, 3 marketing campaigns across all social media platforms and created endless amount of additional marketing collateral like videos and infographics with their help. The communication has been fantastic, and there's hasn't been a single idea that we haven't been able to successfully implement without their help. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a creative, professional service.
