What is Instagram Engagement
Likes, views, and comments are how Instagram grades the quality of your posts.
Together, Likes, views and comments make up what is called your engagement rate. The higher your engagement rate, the more likely Instagram will rank your posts as Top Posts for their hashtags, the more likely sponsors will see your content and offer you money to advertise their business, and so on.
With that mind, the more Likes and comments you can get every time you post, the more opportunities will be presented to you and the more likely you will succeed on Instagram.

Use Instagram comment pods to boost your engagement
Instagram pods are groups of people on Instagram with similarly-sized and similarly-themed pages who agree to engage with each other’s posts every time a pod member posts.
Instagram comment pods specifically are groups of people who agree to comment on every new post posted by a pod member.
For example, if you and I were in the comment Instagram comment pod, whenever you uploaded a new post to Instagram, I would leave a comment. You would do the same thing for me whenever I uploaded a new post.
Why Use an Instagram Comment Pod?
With the help of engagement pods, you get the added benefit of the engagement from your engagement pods on top of the regular engagement.
Because you can join multiple groups, and groups can range from 15 to thousands of people, using Instagram pods can generate upwards of 1,000+ more real Likes and/or comments every time you post!
At the same time that you are generating more engagement for your posts with engagement pods, you also are supporting other members of your Instagram community by Liking and commenting on their posts.
How do Instagram comment pods work?
Usually, as explained in our more-detailed guide on Instagram engagement pods, pods work like this:
- drop your post into the pod (usually a message group on Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, or Telegram) at a specific time (usually called “rounds”)
- everyone in the group will begin Liking and viewing and commenting on your post, usually around 30 minutes to an hour after you share your post
- you do your part and like and comment and view everyone else’s posts
The problem with Instagram comment pods
Finding, joining, and managing your Instagram pod day-after-day, however, can get extremely tiring.
To just join an engagement pod in the first place requires you to research what groups are available, see if and pods exist for your specific niche, and see if they’re taking on new members.
Once you’re in, you have to maintain the daily scheduling of dropping in your new posts at the right time, crafting comments for every upload posted by other pod members, and making sure you don’t miss or forget to engage with any of your pod members in fear of being marked a “lurker”. A lurker is someone who receives engagement from other members but doesn’t engage back. Missing just one round of engagement is often enough to be kicked out of larger engagement pods.
Being marked as a “lurker” yourself is bad enough. But imagine being part of a pod full of lurkers and investing the effort to engage with everyone else’s posts and not receiving equal engagement back. This is also a risk involved in using regular Instagram comment pods.
The final problem is one that may not apply to everyone. But using an Instagram comment pod, especially if you are using more than one, can make it difficult to track your organic engagement rate outside of the engagement you’re receiving from your pods.
All of this is especially tiring if you are participating in multiple pods.
The solution – automated Instagram comment pods
With auto pods, you don’t have to worry about any of this. See the video below to learn why (or read below):
Firstly, the setup is much easier. You can find and join the perfect pods for your niche, create custom pods and invite new members, and upload your posts, all from one easy-to-use dashboard.
Secondly, you don’t have to worry about joining a pod full of lurkers. Because the actions of your fellow pod members are automated (remember, they’re still real people – it’s only their actions that are automated), you can simply upload a post through AiGrow’s scheduler at any time of the day or night and watch as everyone in your pod automatically Likes and comments on your post.
Along the same line, you never have to worry about missing around time or forgetting to engage with another pod member’s post. You can write custom comments that will be automatically posted on other pod member’s new posts. Similarly, you will automatically Like each new post uploaded by a pod member.
And if you do want to measure the growth of your organic engagement outside of your pod, you can use AiGrow’s Instagram pod dashboard to clearly see who is part of your Instagram pods and exclude their engagement on your posts from your calculations.
Whether you’re looking to boost your engagement to attract the attention of your favorite brands or just try to get more eyes on your amazing content, Instagram comment pods will help you get there. In general, more engagement (in any kind of it) is a sign of high-quality content in the eyes of the Instagram algorithm. The more engagement you get on your posts, the more your chances to get your post on the explore page and the more people will visit and likely follow your account.
A great source of engagement pods (like pods, comment pods, save pods, share pods) is AiGrow. You can create your desired pod and add your connections, or you can simply join their +300 engagement groups and double-up the numbers on your posts. If interested, you can sign-up for free here
