Join an Instagram Pod
Instagram what? This was my first reaction before being educated about Instagram pods, which are pretty fantastic. An Instagram pod is a group of like-minded Instagrammers who share strategy tips and tricks and help promote each other’s content.
Typically pods are composed of roughly 10-15 Instagrammers, who communicate through Instagram direct messages, and every time a group member publishes a new post they share it so that the other group members will like it and comment, encouraging others to engage.
How do you join one of these so-called pods? It is by invitation only, so networking is vital, but some other ways to discover seeds include joining Instagram-themed groups on Facebook, like Instagram Marketing Mastermind or The Gram Gang.
