We all love to instantly boost our Instagram posts engagement overnight. As such, you have probably heard a lot about Instagram engagement pods recently. People these days are either chanting that engagement pods are one of the gifts of heaven, or they are writing pods off as a useless fad.
So I went ahead, I looked into several Instagram pod groups to check them out.
What is an Instagram engagement pod?
An engagement pod is a group of Instagram users who band together to help increase engagement and exposure on each other’s posts. For example, through likes, comments, or even follows.
Whether you are looking for something more general or even something exclusive such as fitness, travel, photography, painting, fashion, medical, you name it, chances are there’s an engagement group to gather people around it. The number of Instagram accounts online in each pod can vary. There are often pods with over 1,000 active users and ones that have 100 or less active members.
Each pod has its own rules, but most include these general guidelines:
- 1. Respect the time when the pods “drop”
“Drop” is pod lingo for a predetermined time when users are allowed to share their content for likes or comments.
- Don’t use the chat to chat (this is purely business)
- Most important of all, do not leach (where you reap the benefits of using a pod but don’t like or comment back)
Instagram Engagement Groups
To join an Instagram pod, you can start by checking out a few Facebook groups, such as Instagram Marketing Pods. However, since Facebook owns Instagram, there is a chance your group could get deleted. Additionally, you might try Telegram, a messaging app that hosts pods inside the app.
There are a few ways to join an Instagram engagement pod. Some of the niche and follower specific groups require invitations from people in the group. But luckily there is another way to get access to best Instagram Engagement Pods on Telegram, WhatsApp, messenger, DM groups etc.
Another way, which is much more tedious than using our guide, is to spend a day on Instagram sending DMs to similar pages, or accounts that follow similar Instagram themes. Some of the best ways to find accounts apart of engagement pods are to check their recent 6 posts. If you notice repeat pages of similar status liking and comment consistently on the page, there is a high likelihood they are apart of a pod. Send them a DM expressing your interest and start to like/comment on the pages you believe are apart of the pod.
I have found that pods can generally be broken down into two distinct groups: A fully automated POD which no one in it can cheat or leech and the manual ones with restrict rules.
Also, they are categorized into the mass pods that have over a 1,000 members and are easy to join, and the small, niche pods that generally have 20 people in the max, and are hard to find.
Instagram: And finally, of course, there are pods that start within Instagram itself. I have come to see these as the ‘White Whale’ of engagement pods, as they are very difficult to find and very difficult to get invited to.
More often than not, users don’t want to admit that they are using pods, so it’s a bit of a game of hide-and-seek, and gentle prodding to see if you can get an invite.
How to Get More Instagram Followers with Engagement Pods
Instagram engagement pods can be tiring and mechanical over time, especially if the engagement pod you’re apart of is unreasonably large. There can be a lot of leechers in it and you may not gain the results you were expecting by looking at the number of members in the engagement group.
For best results, join the one that is suited, automated and intelligently makes it look organic and takes care of all the rules for you. The one that also gives you the engagement in the earliest time since you post content.
Moreover, want to really take your Instagram growth to the next level? Combine Instagram engagement pods with an intelligent growth engine like AIGrow.
