In the interview excerpts below, you will learn more about what we do, how we do it and how we can help you achieve your goals:
Co-founder of Mapiac, Travel Influencer & Marketing Consultant
How has Mapiac helped you grow & develop?
Frederik: “My current Instagram was actually my first Instagram account! In a little over a year I grew it to a little over 90K followers, I didn’t have that many pictures online as I was focusing on building Mapiac. At this point, my followers were from all over the world and that is when we decided to move from Belgium to Bulgaria. After I reached 90K and moved to Bulgaria, I wanted to start growing my account within Bulgaria too, to date I have over 120K followers, with the last 30K mainly in Bulgaria. Additionally, our content management service takes away the stress of taking a flawless picture and spending hours in photoshop perfecting it. The content team take care of all of that for you, allowing you to spend your time on what really matters.”
Elizabeth: “Mapiac has definitely helped in many ways, but I think the most important help was when Mapiac started helping me sort out my grid. You can almost see the difference from when I started working with them. My grid started looking cleaner, more united and portrays my voice more clearly. I think this is the most important work, at the end of the day, this is what will make a follower stay or go. With better and clearer content, I started seeing more loyal followers. I get a lot more engagement and positive feedback on the information I put out there now.”
Nick: “I didn’t want to buy followers because doing that ruins your Instagram account and has zero benefit whatsoever, I wanted to find someone who could bring my Instagram game to the next level. That is when I found a site call Mapiac. I also found an article written about them on Buzzfeed. I decided why not give it a shot, from what I read it seemed pretty decent. My analytics have boosted so much, I have landed several paid jobs as a result of my increased followers and my photos appearing on the explore tab.”
How relevant are the followers you’ve acquired from our services?
Frederik: “Since April I have been adapting my content to focus on hotels, as I would like to be able to travel the world for free. I reached out to hotels in Turkey and managed to get a two week stay, in different hotels around Turkey completely free. Each hotel usually charging on average €300 per night! I used the same tactic travelling Belarus and Hungary, as I am advertising for them I got the best food, customer service and room all free. At the beginning of June, I was able to get two bartenders and all the alcohol for a party we had free because of my Instagram. I also get a few DM’s a week, sometimes from girls but a lot of the time also from people wanting to collaborate with me. This is great because I constantly have new and exciting opportunities!”
Elizabeth: “I think this will depend a bit on what resources you give Mapiac, but if you do a good job there, then the followers they manage to gain for you are very relevant. I get a lot of followers from the fitness world, travel enthusiasts, nutritionists, yogis and surfers so I am very happy with that. There will always be the odd follower that just makes no sense but who knows where that one came from right – could be just random.”
Nick: “When I first started with Mapiac I saw a rise of 6K followers within 2 months, I acquired 3 new clients and opened up my own online store. I sell my prints on SmugMug due to the demand of people asking, “where can I buy your photos”. Since then, my account has only grown, I am very pleased with both the growth and engagement rates”.

What would you say to prospective clients that are debating using our services?
Frederik: “I’m always shocked when someone is not using our service, the only reason I can think of that makes sense is that they don’t have money. But even then, it is an investment, often we make you more money. What would take you five years to do alone, can be done within a year with us – both naturally and organically. Once you grow your account you can collaborate with brands, hotels, influencers, bloggers – just like I’ve done.”
Elizabeth: “I keep telling everyone that asks that I only recommend Mapiac, as they are not just an app or an automated platform. Mapiac consists of real people that are dedicated to work on your profile and you can feel the difference both in service, professionalism, as well as seeing this in the results. I was looking for an agent, a real person, to help me organize my Instagram and found just that in Mapiac. Together with their work, my work and time my account has started to gain a more streamlined outlook and this in turn helped attract both people and collaborations with brands.”
Nick: “From the moment I subscribed until this very day, I have seen massive improvements in my Instagram. As a customer they treat you as a friend, rather than just any other paying customer. They do their utmost to make your experience the best possible. The team is always ready to help you and you have your own account manager. I am honestly pretty happy so far and pretty excited to see what’s in store next.”
Any advice you would give to aspiring influencers?
Frederik: “Don’t be a blogger, think more in terms of business and money. Don’t be concerned about what people will say or how you may be judged – fake it till you make it! If you don’t have any collaborations opportunities make a couple of posts and tag your favorite brands. It will be good for your growth; the brands will like your posts as it’s free advertising for them and you will get the practice you need to get paid collaborations in the future.”
Elizabeth: “I would not waste my time or money on random automated apps that you find all over the web these days. They give you more problems than solutions! Yes, you might be able to buy 5000 followers for $50 and get them all in just one day. But do you think they are real, engaging followers that actually are interested in your content? No, they are not and soon enough they are all gone again – along with your $50! I would also strongly recommend to not only opt for the growth service, because this is of very little worth if you don’t also work on your content. The two services go hand-in-hand and if you have to choose one or the other, I would honestly start with the content service.”
Nick: “Nowadays the more followers you have the more attractive you will be to brands. You have a high market value. Do yourself a favor and invest in Mapiac, it will be the best choice you make!”
