Before you get started, please take a second to read through the rules for an explanation of how the rounds group works. I just want to make sure everyone is on the same page and everyone knows how this works and what is expected of you.

Once you’re done reading, feel free to participate in the next scheduled round (and any round following)!


What are engagement “rounds” and how do they work?

Typical engagement groups

If you’ve ever been in an Instagram engagement group or pod, you’ll have a basic understanding of how the rounds group works.

The basic idea is the same, but with a few key differences. Let me explain.

In a typical Instagram engagement group, each member lets the group know when they’ve published a new post to Instagram. This is usually done through a group Instagram DM. Then, each member of the group must like and/or comment on that person’s post as soon as they can.

Different engagement groups have different rules for when this has to be done by, but in general, each member must catch up on giving likes/comments before they are allowed to post their own to the group.

The likes + comments received from group members helps you boost the engagement and visibility of your post on Instagram, which in turn helps you attract new followers.

Rounds Groups

In a rounds group like this one, everyone posts at specific scheduled times and not sporadically throughout the day.

For example, if you’re in a group of 100 people with a round at 1 PM, you’ll get 100 new likes on your most recent post on Instagram, starting at 1 PM.

You must reciprocate as well, so you must also give 100 likes back — one to each participating group member. This must all be completed within an hour to so everyone gets the best results.


How the Rounds Group Works

In the ‘ROUNDS – RISE SHINE ENGAGE’ Telegram group there are several scheduled rounds that occur every day. See the pinned message (at the top of the chat) within the group for current round times.

How to participate

Watch this video tutorial for instructions on how to participate:

  1. For a round you want to participate in: 30 minutes before round start, post your Instagram handle in the ROUNDS group on Telegram, after Ginger tells you to “LIKE RECENT ROUND – DROP”. Ex. I would type ‘@gorattlethestars’ if I were participating. You have until the round start time to drop your name.
  2. 5 minutes before round start, go to Instagram and publish your post that you want engagement on. (optional)
  3. At round start (on the hour), Ginger will post buttons for the compiled list of participants. For large rounds, there will be multiple numbered lists.
  4. If you’ve participated before, click the button for whichever format you want, and Ginger will send you the list in a private message.
    1. If this is your FIRST TIME participating, do the following:
      1. Click on Ginger’s picture.
      2. Hit ‘Send Message’ to start a private conversation with her.
      3. Click /Start
      4. Return to the ROUNDS group and click the button for whichever list format you would prefer. Ginger will send the list to you via private message.
  5. Copy ALL lists (not just the one your name is in) and paste them into an Instagram DM to yourself.
  6. You now have a clickable list of all the participants you need to give likes to on Instagram.
  7. Go down the list and LIKE the MOST RECENT post of each account in the list. You have 90 MINUTES to complete this.
  8. That’s it, you’re done!

Group Rules

  • DO NOT drop your name in the round if you do not have time to complete all likes within the given time frame.
  • “Leechers” or those who do not reciprocate all likes, will be removed from the group. We are all in this together to help each other grow, and we expect you to do your part.
  • If you notice a group member who is NOT giving likes, please report them to an admin (admin listed in the pinned post within the Telegram group).
  • Please DO NOT CHAT in the rounds group. If you have problems or questions please ask them in the CHAT group or the Rise Shine Create Facebook Group. This helps us keep everything running smoothly + efficiently.


Why Rounds are more effective than typical engagement groups

Rounds are much more effective than engagement groups for a couple of reasons:

The more engagement you get on a post and the faster you get it, the higher Instagram ranks it in the algorithm. The more engagement you get, the wider your reach, and the faster you will grow.

So the bigger the group the better your results, and by organizing that group to get likes/comments fast you make it even more powerful.

If you manage to reach a high enough engagement level fast enough, your post can make it onto the Explore Page.

What happens when you get onto the Explore Page? Results like this:

A HUGE spike in views, likes, and comments! These engagement boosts result in follower growth spikes like these:



Why does this happen?

Once your post lands on the Explore Page, your post will be seen by a much wider audience than before. It also has huge potential to go viral if you are posting great content, which can result in the numbers shown above.

This generally doesn’t happen when you use typical engagement groups for two reasons:

  1. You get your likes/comments sporadically and not all at once. This won’t help boost your content as effectively.
  2. Instagram DM groups are limited to 15 people per group. So at best, you’re limiting yourself to a boost of an extra 15 likes/comments. Rounds groups can be much bigger, and give you much better results in the end.
