Having a huge following may be every Instagrammer’s dream, but there’s a lot that needs to be done for unmatched engagement and to keep your account interesting for people. However, since it isn’t always easy to find people interested in engaging with your content, quite a few influencers have started resorting to engagement pods, which are an excellent way to ensure that they always have an audience that is interested in what they have to offer.
Interested in learning more about engagement pods and how they work? Read on as we tell you all about engagement pods, how they can be used, and how effective they are for increasing your number of followers on Instagram.
What are engagement pods?
Engagement pods are one of newest techniques used by social media influencers to increase traction and visibility. Teaming up with other influencers, Instagram users form “pods” where everyone is updated whenever a new picture or video is uploaded. This allows all of the members of the pod to engage with the newly added post, helping it gain traction in an apparently organic way.
Even though pods are being created on direct messages on Instagram to this day, it is rumored that engagement pods may not be as effective as they once were.
Since the people behind Instagram are constantly working to penalize fake traffic, and red flags were being raised when the same groups of people were constantly commenting and supporting the posts of a very particular set of others, influencers have now started resorting to other platforms such as Whatsapp to gain the traction that they need.
How can engagement pods be used to boost engagement?
As a plausible solution for anyone interested in getting engagement and traction on Instagram, engagement pods ensure that your posts on Instagram get high numbers of comments, increasing the likelihood of them being viewed by other people as well.
One thing, however, that needs to be taken into account when using engagement pods to increase your engagement is that the content that you upload should not only be relevant to the image that you have created through your brand or business, but the quality of content should be exquisite.
When you are known to share well edited images or videos that essentially tell a story on behalf of your brand or business, sharing your posts on engagement pods will get you just the right amount of engagement.
How can engagement pods help your account?
Instagram works on a simple principle based on which interesting or engaging posts are made visible to increasing numbers of people. The first 15 minutes after posting play an extremely important role in how Instagram will value your content, which means that getting likes and comments at this time can affect the popularity of your post and the traction that you will receive considerably. In fact, if you get enough engagement with the help of engagement pods in the first fifteen minutes, there’s a chance that you might even end up on the Explore page of Instagram, giving you even more traction.
How can I find an engagement pod to join?
Since engagement pods have been around for a while and have continued to become popular since their inception years ago, a quick search on Facebook or other platforms often suffices, giving you a list of engagement pods that you could join.
It is, however, crucial to note that your location and requirements may be considerably different from those of other members of a certain engagement pod, which is why it is important to ask questions and get an idea of where the members of your engagement pod of choice are located. This will give you a better understanding of the type of results you can expect.

Are engagement pods actually effective?
Engagement pods have been receiving criticism since their inception because instead of attracting the target audiences, they are known to attract other influencers – that too through methods which can be regarded as fake. What’s important to note, however, is that since the idea behind engagement pods is to increase the visibility of your content, they can provide you with fruitful results if used in the right way, ultimately increasing your chances of creating meaningful partnerships and collaborations.
All you need to do is follow the tips mentioned above when looking to join an engagement pod and you should be well on your way to getting the results that you want.
