    So, in the past few days, I joined some of those engagement groups and honestly, they were all just crap. I dont know if it was me for joining the wrong groups, but I think that none of them are working. Nobody in there ever hit the explore page. One part is inactive all the time ( why the fuck do you join a group like that, when you're inactive straight from the beginning? ) and the other part is leeching, or is engaging one time in 10 days.. Sadly there are mostly kids on this forum, thinking, that they can achieve anything by just caring about themselves and then wondering why they cant achieve anything. You will never hit the explore page by being such a dick. The key is to work together and I dont think that It's a really hard task to like and comment some pictures a day and getting back the engagement.

    After seeing such a behaviour, I'm not wondering about people failing in instagram anymore, when they dont even understand the use of those groups.

    What are your thoughts? What is your experience? And please dont tell me that you hit explore 3729373 times with those groups while not proving it.

    IG is full of dumbass 12-16 year old kids who think to get to be a millionaire overnight. Thats the problem. Forget dedication, it's all me me me.

    It can especially be a problem when those are all small accounts, people give up easily. Face it, majority of the people here are 1k-5k people.

    I joined groups when I had a 20k account, so I could already join the groups with a bit bigger account (15k-40k range). I stayed committed and with their help I grew my superbaby account to my current main.

    The trick is to find the right people. The half of every group is cuntshit, so that's why you join a load of groups, after 2 weeks weed out the cunts and re-create a new group with the people you know who are dedicated. It's an ongoing process, all groups eventually will die out. The longer you do this, the bigger the groups you join will be (including your account), the more dedicated these people are. I might be a dick here sometimes, but nobody can judge me on my loyalty to my teammembers.

    When I had some groups with people in the 1-10k range, it was just utter shit. While time goes on my groups were going to the 100-300k range and those people understand the concept of collaboration.

    So conclusion: Keep doing what you're doing, monitor the shit out of it and keep the dedicated people close to you.

    I've noticed the same things as you two, and I've been thinking about it the past few days as well. Just not worth it most of these DM groups. You spend perhaps more than an hour every single day commenting on all these pics, then when you post, you get maybe one, or two engagements on your pics per 15-person group. Is it worth it? Hardly.

    I like Vape's suggestion, pull people you know reciprocate into your own groups. Forget the entitled/exploitative, they are very rarely successful in the world of business, because being successful requires one to be reciprocal/collaborative.

    I think the key is being in an engagement group with bigger accounts, they'll take it more seriously. the 1k groups will have a few that take it seriously but most are in there just to get likes and comments for themselves.

    If anyone in here has a bigger account and wants to like/comment each others pics. PM me

    @VapeMonkey is right, you can try contacting other big pages in your niche and share with them your idea, about creating an active engagement group. If you start sending a lot of DM/email/kik proposals you will build your engagement group in no time.

    Actually I never contact people to ask them to start a DM group, for several reasons:
    - or they don't reply
    - or they don't understand shit what you're saying
    - or the people that do understand are short term/non-dedicated people
    - and; I don't know them

    If you want to create your own groups, it's better to contact people who are not in your groups, but who are obviously in other groups. You pick them out in a splitsecond, because the comments are pretty standard AND you see them commenting all over the place. When you're 10-15k its still pretty difficult to reach out to the bigger ones (they mostly ignore you), but once you are in the 25-50k range you can start your own groups and the others will just participate.

    I don't even ask anymore, just start a new group, add user X, Y, Z and they know the drill :)

    Pro-tip: While you are returning on a photo, have a quick look to all the comments. Pick out the group-users and just like/comment their pic as well, even you don't know them. 60-80% knows the etiquette and they will return ;)

    Bare minimum is 50k for me now, but I don't care too much about the niche actually. From the beginning till now I'm pretty much settled with a big group of dedicated people in 2 different niches for my main account. Since a few weeks I'm mixing up with different niches, because I have the feeling I'm in an infinite loop with all the same people. Seems it helps! That's the advantage of a general niche though.

    I'm with you man.

    I'm in a group on telegram that has a lot of potential. Good group of people & the mods actively weed out the leechers. But it's still a lot of time and effort.

    The best group I'm part of is the automated bot group. @auuuu is running it. Set it & forget it. Auto likes & comments, usually within 10 minutes of posting. It has a lot of potential if we could get a significant number of users on board.

    But beyond that, the rest of them have been an absolute waste of time.

    I will tell you right now its up to you.. if you join you will be faced with soo many leeches and just try to make your own group as you can kick out the inactive ones it hard work insta takes a lot of work and the kids on it are going think "oh if I join like 15 groups I'll only like when I have time there enabling that leachy behavior. I have hit explore many times but the thing is I did it with no engagement groups hit it using my own strategy so it had nothing to do with explore groups. in conclusion its good to join if you are smaller and want to build up your audince also make sure they are niche specific or you will be fucked and not get as many followers as you would if it was relevant to your niche.

    Why spend time looking for them when they will come to you?

    Set up a dummy account. Make it private. Follow all of the influencers you're interested in.

    At bare minimum, you don't need to do anything else. Aside from the accounts you followed who, out of curiosity, may want to follow you back, 90% of the follow requests you end up receiving are from people who bot & scrape users & who are probably members (or open to being members) of these sorts of groups.

    Check out the people who request to follow you, create a list of the promising ones & begin discussions.

    You might also want to like posts from the account every now & then just to widen the net to people who scrape likes & comments only...

    I've made several strong contacts using this method.

    Try making a shoutout circle with people that you know are dedicated instead. Get 5-7 good members and then shoutout one person in your picture captions every day. This way you instantly see if people are leeching and you also start o appear on each others suggested list etc etc.

    I've got a few pages but the one I'm most interested in growing is my 28k account. I've been working on it consistently for more than 6 months....I'm active and in for the long haul if anyone has an active group looking for an active member feel free to PM me. I'm also not a kid at 30 years old...that might help lol
