  1. Hey, harmattanrain!

    Want to be Instagram cool?

    Ever thought about how to be an Instagram Influencer?

    Picture this: You wake up early in the morning, even before your alarm goes off.

    You roll over in bed to check your cellphone.

    Open the Instragram App.

    Youare flabbergastered at what is waiting for you: Over 652 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you can see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures–over 738 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some coffee and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Bam! Another 49 likes.

    Buzz—another message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there’s another message–this time from a young girl–thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and your’e an inspiration.

    As you begin to respond, your phone buzzes again.

    Hmmm, ANOTHER message. You close your cell and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time acquiring what they want in life. People can hardly force themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    Now, this is the point in time where you learn to take control of your Instagram.

    Imagine if you increased your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it’s not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

    Automagically see tons of likes on your images just minutes after posting.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that far away.

    And because we love you, we made testing things out as simple as kitchen-cooled apple crumble:
    1. Check out
    2. Put in your Instagram username.
    3. 10 – 15 likes will be sent to your three most recent pictures. Just like that.

    Being a everyday name on that page will accelerate your growth 10x, easy. But if you want the fame, you’ve got to reach for it. Are you ready?

    Chow until next time
