Honest Social is an Instagram and social media marketing agency based in New York City. Our clients are small businesses and brands of various kinds.
You may be wondering…What’s so honest about us?
It’s simple: we don’t believe in buying likes, followers, comments or views for Instagram accounts.
It’s no secret that one of the easiest and most common ways to get lots of likes, comments, and followers on Instagram is to buy them. $2.99 for 100 likes. $10 for 1,000 followers. $20 for 50 comments. All you have to do is enter your payment details into some shady website and sit back as your content starts getting hundreds of likes, comments, and follows.
That was easy. You’re basically famous.
As a matter of fact, a lot agencies and social media gurus also apply this same method to “grow” their clients’ accounts. And, in many cases, it’s a relatively harmless tactic to jumpstart an account.
However, at Honest Social we believe buying artificial engagement is not only dishonest, it’s a waste of resources. For small businesses with limited budgets, it’s just not sustainable.
Sure, it’s faster and easier to make a post and throw some likes at it. But simply having an active Instagram account isn’t going to help you get customers. If you really wish to make Instagram or any other social media channel a productive part of your marketing strategy, you have to put real work into it.
Or you can hire us to do that work for you.
At Honest Social, we specialize—and pride ourselves—in growing small businesses through authentic social media engagement.
There are many ways to be “authentic” on social media, but all of them involve one thing: socializing! This means liking other people’s posts, leaving thoughtful comments, responding to all messages, and so on. Doing so lets others know that you’re not just some soulless company, but a business that truly cares about its customers.
In other words, our growth strategy is genuine communication.
Remember this: your Instagram account is more than just a digital representation of your business—it’s the most direct way to connect with your customers. It’s the best way to show your customers who you are and what you believe in.
At Honest Social, we believe in thoughtful conversations, not copy-pasted replies. We also believe in treating customers as friends and playing a genuine part in their everyday lives.
But most of all, we believe in being social.
