Instagram Engagement Groups: A Study

Whether you are a new Instagram user, or an established one, one thing is for sure – you need to know how to manage and grow your Instagram account. There are several ways to increase the popularity of your account, but one we are going to focus on in this article is Instagram engagement groups. 

What are Instagram Engagement groups?

Instagram engagement groups (also can be called pods) are small communities created on Instagram and Telegram with the sole purpose of increasing the engagement of the members’ accounts in a natural way. People in these groups like and/or comment on other people’s posts in exchange for their posts getting liked and/or commented. 

Instagram vs Telegram

When it comes to Instagram engagement groups, Instagram and Telegram are considered to be the most popular platforms to create such conversational communities, but which one is better? Groups on Instagram, also known as DM groups, consist of up to 15 people because of Instagram’s limitations. To get the most engagement, you need to be a part of several groups.

Telegram, however, does not have these limitations, groups can contain hundreds or even thousands of users. In a Telegram group everyone posts at a specific time, and not randomly throughout the day, like on Instagram. Most Telegram groups host a couple of scheduled rounds every day and you can choose which rounds you want to participate in.

A round usually starts somewhat about 30 minutes before the engagement time. At this time everyone who wants to participate writes down their username in the conversation. After the time is up, the engagement begins. Some of the groups are managed by bots who moderate groups, warn or ban you if you break the rules, share analytics and what’s most important, check if you have completed your rounds.

So, to put it in comparison, Telegram groups seem to be considerably more effective. Because of Instagram’s algorithm, the more engagement your post receives and the faster it happens, the faster your account will grow and the wider your reach will be. If your post’s level of engagement is high enough, it can make it to the Explore page, where the views and likes can increase even more, thus increasing your followers. 

Types of Instagram Engagement groups

Groups vary depending on how people interact within those groups, so they can be: 

  • Like only 
  • Comment only 
  • Like and comment 

There are different types of groups that have specific requirements that differentiate from the ones mentioned before. These groups are: 

  • Time-limit groups 
  • Dx-groups 
  • Post notification groups

Time-limit groups, usually labeled “24H”, require you to engage with links posted in the last 24 hours before you can share your link. 

A Dx-group is usually marked with a number, for example, dx10 or dx20. This number implies that you have to engage with the number of posts indicated in the name before you can share your post. So, if the name has the number “10” in it, it means that you have to engage with 10 posts before you share your post for 10 people to interact with it.

A post notification group means that all members of the group have to have notifications on for all members. Meaning, when a group member posts something, everyone will be notified of this, so they can like and/or comment on that post.

How can you find these groups and how do you join them?

It is quite difficult to find Instagram engagement groups as they are mostly private or secret. You can only get in these groups if you are invited, so start by simply sending direct messages to accounts that seem to be doing good in terms of engagement, that have a large number of likes and comments, and are in a somewhat similar niche to yours.

Ask if they know anything about these groups and if they can add you to any of them. It is recommended to look for groups where members have similar content to yours, with the number of subscribers being close to yours. You don’t want to engage with random accounts with little followers.

Don’t forget to Google for these groups, you never know what you can find on google. Often, if you get added to one group, there is a possibility you’ll get added to another.

Some of these groups require a payment to enter: usually, you only have to pay once, and the payment is no more than 20 dollars. So, if you wish to increase your account’s engagement rate, be ready for this one-time investment. Just make sure you are not being scammed. 

Once you have joined an Instagram engagement group, there is a set of rules you must follow to remain in this group. The rules are similar within the groups but can change depending on the group’s way of engagement. Typically, you are required to:

  • Follow the admins
  • Engage with other links before sharing your link
  • Close the preview when sharing your link 

Make sure to ask questions if you do not understand something because if you do not follow group rules, you will be banned, and most likely forever. Group members don’t like “leechers”, people who share their posts, receive likes and comments, but who do not like and/or comment on other posts. Groups do not condone such behavior very long. 

Are Instagram engagement groups worth your time?

Finding Instagram engagement groups is not an easy job. You have to put in consideration certain aspects before entering. You have to scour the Internet for these groups, it is highly unlikely someone is going to suggest you become a member. Many have certain requirements. In some groups, you even have to pay before being accepted. You need to follow the rules.

Upon entering such groups, you must remember that you still need to put some work in, you need to spend your own time liking and commenting on posts before you can even share yours. It can take you up to half an hour to share one link. You can be engaging with accounts not even remotely related to your account.

What’s even more interesting, Instagram can recognize this activity as suspicious behavior and delete or ban your account. So is it worth it? The answer is up in the air, and only for you to decide. You can still build quality relationships within these groups which can help you grow. But remember that it still requires a lot of time to make it work.
