Are you creating your Instagram Community? Whether you are starting out with Comment Pods™ or building your account, community is the cornerstone to long-term success. Effort in = results out!
Are you creating your Instagram Community?
When we started Comment Pods™, we quickly found that we were solving several issues that newbies face when starting Social Media and specifically Instagram:
? Providing a structure and practice to ENGAGE on Instagram with people.
? Provide networking to discuss niche opportunities and collaborations
? Forming a community – what Instagram is ALL about!
? And… jump start the engagement on your Instagram posts.
Most Comment Pods™ have taken the ball and run with it, creating flourishing networks and micro-communities. Where else can you find chat buddies who are both invested in Instagram and your niche to “geek out” with over your Instagram passion.
However, we have some in the Comment Pods™ who struggle with similar complaints.
✖️People only leave one word comments.
✖️People are not very active
✖️People drop out of the pod.
Our answer… it’s up to EACH of you to create your Comment Pod™ Community. In successful pods, everyone pitches in to keep the dialogue and ideas growing creating a community that people WANT to check in on regularly and be an active part of.
How to your create your Comment Pod™ Instagram Community?
✔️ Actually READ each others posts
✔️ Leave meaningful comments. Even better … ask questions and create a public dialogue which further propels conversation on each other’s posts
Within the DM conversation,
✔️ …talk to each other like friends.
✔️ Brainstorm Instagram strategies in your niche. Each niche works a little differently – Teri do things in travel that Liz does not do in Mom/Baby and vice versa.
✔️ Brainstorm ideas in your niche. Our recipe and book pods are amazing at this sharing book clubs, recipes, ingredients etc. Traveler’s share location tips. Photographers – gear, setting, photo specific contract items on how to handle copyright.
And then guess what happens… this conversation & activity develops your skillset in engaging your Instagram follower community in a natural way. The engagement in your Comment Pod™ Instagram Community quickly becomes and engaged community of followers on YOUR account. This is the goal… REAL FOLLOWERS with REAL ENGAGEMENT.
You are basically in pods with people who share (a) a passion for growing their Instagram and (b) niche… there is a lot of commonalities that you can build upon and it’s amazing what synergies come out of them.
This is why we recommend 1 (tops 2) pods. Invest in these 14 people and you will reap the rewards of more meaningful results as opposed to 10 comment pods with 150 one word comments that will not create a flourishing community.
Think about your long term goals of why you are in comment pods or engaging on social media.
