Introduction to Instagram Engagement Pods
So, lets just assume this is a perfect world, and everyone reading this already knows what an engagement pod is…Right?
Ok Good. (if you don’t…you will find out)
Engagement Pods are the one true way to get likes and comments on your Instagram posts, and still stay within the bounds of Instagram’s user guidelines.
There are thousands of groups out there, literally thousands. Heck, you can start your own if you want. The only problem is, these groups usually range from 10-200 members and hit max capacity quickly.
The 3 main reasons for this are:
- No Leadership: The person who made the group was irresponsible, did not delegate any leadership roles or select any moderators to manage the group. There are general rules established, but they aren’t specific and aren’t enforced. Everyone eventually ends up yelling at each other, blaming people for leeching etc. and the group fizzles out after a few months.
- Not Enough Members: The group isn’t big enough for people to invest time into. This is usually the case with groups from 25-50 members. There may be what seems like a lot of people, but only 10-15 are taking it seriously. Maybe 3-5 of that subsets follow the rules. Once again, it slides further and further down your DM list as time goes on.
- Limited Mobility: Most engagement groups are inside of the Instagram app. This requires members to post a link and say something like, “new post” or “new video”. Then, whoever see’s the link clicks it and it could end up taking 2 days to collect likes, comments etc. Most people have notifications turned off, so if they don’t actively check their DM’s, they may not see it for a week. There are no link previews (if the user posts the wrong type of hyperlink).
There are plenty of other reasons why Instagram is a poor environment to host an engagement pod, but they are mostly petty and annoying. That’s why they don’t work out.
Introduction to Telegram Messenger
Most savvy Instagrammers have. If you aren’t using Telegram as your medium for Instagram engagement, you are wasting your time.
Telegram provides the perfect app-to-app workflow environment, especially in the circumstance of a group chat-like setting, where you are constantly clicking links, opening a new window, returning to telegram and repeating the process over and over.
It is literally that easy. The app is super secure, yet simple. Most importantly, its free. They also allow useful things like bots and group butlers. The group butler in Telegram, in my opinion, is the gold standard for organizing and assisting users in public group messaging applications. It provides a simple, nuts and bolts version of a chat admin – which is all it should be anyways.
Bots can be automated to work in the group, providing answers to members queries, updates and scheduled events, and work in and out of the application securely to retrieve data from outside sources. Telegram, combined with Instagram is a perfect balance of workflow, communication and it provides a platform for communities, such as an engagement group, to thrive.
Finding a Balance Across the Platforms
Users can easily like 50-100 different users posts in a matter of 10 minutes, and in return get an EQUAL amount of engagement… If not more.
The key determining factor in what a user gets out of the telegram app, is the groups they choose to be in. Some are good… Most are decent, and there are a few bad actors that want to spoil the fun for everyone.
Envi Engagement is Changing the Instagram Pod Landscape
Obviously, Envi was founded with the sole intention of being an open platform, unregulated by the people who are just out there looking to bank off selling likes. Not created for people looking to chase the clout themselves, or people who wanted to control much of anything.
Did we need to do all of this, just for an engagement group? No.
But that’s exactly why we did. We want our group members to feel comfortable and trust the community. We don’t let people break our rules, we don’t automate anything, we monitor the legitimacy of the users who post, we are straightforward, easy and honest.
That’s it. Were growing at a fast pace now, and hopefully we can continue to deliver a good and honest space for people to participate in. Nothing more, nothing less.
Outside of our community, there are a few other groups that have maintained a solid reputation over time – these can be trusted (for the most part) and some are now even ran by bots that developers spent countless hours building so that you don’t have to rely on a moderator or admin to check everything.
Those groups can be found on our website, on our engagement pod list.
There aren’t many resources out there that explain any of this, most of it is what we have learned and compiled over time.
Joining our engagement groups and contributing to the community, is 100% the only legitimate way to get instant likes, comments, followers faster than you would normally.
Watching Out for the Bad Actors Among Us
Let me make this as clear as I possibly can, ANYONE THAT CLAIMS TO BE SELLING LIKES, COMMENTS, or ANY TYPE OF ENGAGEMENT is selling a lie.
They aren’t real, most of the time. As in, they are accounts that were created using stone age resources, that are not actively managed by real people. There are millions of them. When these accounts like your stuff, follow you or comment on anything you post…
They are not doing you any sort of favor. In fact, this type of engagement devalues your account with Instagram. If the activity on one account, and the activity on another are polar opposites, red flags go up and you are entering no man’s land of Instagram’s algorithms.
Your account eventually become an obsolete User ID in their servers and every connection you’ve made to use the account is also, now and forever, void of any legitimacy.
Outside of the fake likes and followers, there are also people that sell “real” ones too. Once again, if you buy this type of engagement… You are buying a lie. Plain and simple.
The platforms that market these are either never going to deliver anything, at all… Or they are going to take your money and post your link in a massive engagement group (that’s unregulated or managed) over, and over, and over – using hundreds of aliases they automated, driving illegitimate traffic to fill the order. You will be lucky if you get 75% of what you paid for and in the long run it will be detrimental to your Instagram account.
Social Media engagement is hard to quantify unless you are the user who is participating. Likes and Comments are impossible to be bought and sold with any sort of accuracy, or legitimacy without the help of nefarious tactics, social engineering and dishonest people marketing it to the suckers who are willing to bite.
Engagement Groups are Here to Stay
So, to wrap things up, lets go over a few last things.
- Instagram engagement groups are beneficial to everyone that’s willing to contribute to the community
- Stay out of the Instagram DM groups, they are self-limiting and restrictive
- Telegram is the best platform for Engagement Communities
- Buying and Selling Likes, Comments or Followers will ruin your Account
- There are Both Good and Bad Engagement Groups in Telegram
The deciding factor in your growth on Instagram will be measured on the legitimacy of you as a user, and the content you post. Don’t post dumb stuff, don’t post things that aren’t aesthetically appealing, don’t post just to post, either.
There are a billion camera phones in the world. Literally, anyone can take a picture of anything. Put some thought into it. If nobody likes it, take a better picture. Consistency.
