Instagram engagement groups are all the rage these days — the hard part is finding a good one and gaining an invite. If you want to learn what it takes to find and join the best engagement groups you’ve come to the right place.

I’ll also be going over the ins-and-outs of how an Instagram engagement group functions, and you’ll be able to take your new found understanding to create an Instagram engagement group of your own.

Engagement groups can help you boost your engagement, get featured on the Instagram Explore Page, go viral, and gain hundreds to thousands of new followers as a result. But it does take time, patience, and a whole lot of dedication on order to see the best results.

The Two Main Types of Instagram Engagement Groups

1. Typical Instagram Engagement Groups or DM Groups

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.

*Where to find Instagram DM Groups in your niche: Either ask around other large accounts in your niche, or try a Facebook group. You’ll need to look for Social Media or Instagram-related Facebooks groups — many of them have a weekly thread for people forming Instagram engagement groups or pods. You can find someone in your niche and ask to join theirs, or post a listing in one of these groups to find members for your own group.

2. Instagram Rounds Groups on Telegram

In a “Rounds” engagement group on Telegram, the basic idea is the same as a normal Instagram engagement group but with a few key differences. Let me explain.

The Telegram rounds groups are hosted inside groups on the Telegram chat app (it’s similar to WhatsApp and Kik if you haven’t heard of it before). Depending on the group, there may be hundreds or even thousands of members.

In a Telegram rounds group, 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 scheduled 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 (usually) within an hour so everyone gets the best results possible.

Most Telegram engagement groups host several scheduled rounds each day that occur every day. You can pick and choose which rounds you participate in, and aren’t obligated to “catch up” on rounds that you missed or did not participate in.

*Where to find Telegram Engagement Groups: Try this Telegram Engagment Groups directory — This links to a Telegram groups which means you’ll need create a Telegram username and account to view it. Inside there is an up-to-date list of current Telegram engagement groups for Instagram with instructions on requirements for each and who to contact in order to get in.

Tutorial: How to Participate in a Telegram Engagement Group

Watch this video tutorial for instructions on how to participate in a typical rounds group:

Make sure to respect the rules of the group and ask questions if you’re having trouble. Group members do not appreciate “leechers” who drop their names and receive likes/comments but who do not reciprocate to the rest of the group.

You’ll be kicked out of the group in the drop of a hat if you become a repeat offender.

Why Telegram Engagement Groups are (Usually) More Effective Than Instagram DM Groups

Rounds are usually much more effective than Instagram DM 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 Instagram Explore Page.

What happens when you get featured on the Instagram Explore Page? Crazy explosive results like this…

…plus a HUGE spike in views, likes, and comments! These big boosts in engagement can result in spikes in follower growth like these:

But first, it’s important to get the basics of Instagram growth down pat. Without having a good foundation to build upon, going vial is not likely to happen for you.

How does viral growth like this happen?

Once one of your posts lands on the Instagram 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 Instagram DM 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.

An alternative route you could take in order to make Instagam DM groups effective is to join a whole bunch. If you’re in 8-10 DM groups you’ll be getting up to 150 likes or comments on your newly posted content. The only problem is you won’t get all of this engagement all at once when it has the largest effect.

But if you manage to get into a few DM groups with large accounts in your niche, these can be incredibly effective in boosting your content to the Instagram Explore Page all on its own.

In addition to trying your luck with Instagram engagement groups, you should still have a reliable Instagram growth strategy in place to consistently grow your following.
