Here’s how a shoutout can work

Two Instagram users will often agree to give each other a shoutout post on their accounts by posting a photo or a video and instructing their own followers to follow the respective account. Shoutout posts are often photos or videos from the account they’re shouting out but they can of course be anything.

If you are the one asking for “s4s”, you should always look for accounts that has a similar amount of followers as you and it´s pretty obvious why. You of course want to make shoutouts with accounts that has the most amount of followers possible (compared to your amount) but you should also be realistic.

Let’s say you have 5K followers. People with 100K followers will probably not want to do shoutouts with you because they won’t earn as much followers as you.

You should therefore look for accounts that has a bit higher amount of followers but not too high because they will not want to do s4s´s with you.

Contact users via email or Instagram Direct.


You might have seen comments on people´s accounts saying “shouts?” “or s4s?” and while this may work,  this is something we don’t recommend you doing.

Most accounts will consider this as spam and only ignore your comments.

If you want a higher chance of response, your should either contact the account through email or Instagram Direct Message (DM). By doing this, the account will see you as more serious and hopefully consider doing a shoutout with you. Thank you very much for readingHow to get a shoutout on Instagram.
