Creating an Instagram group can be beneficial to your business in more ways than one. It’s a great way to connect with others and share what you know, it’s a great way to gain followers, and it’s also an easy way to find new customers and connect with them right off the bat. But how do you go about setting up your own Instagram group? What are some tricks you can use to make sure that it goes smoothly? Let’s take a look at the ins and outs of creating an Instagram group, including advice on how to make it successful!
How to Create a Group on Instagram
The first step to creating a group on Instagram is to open your app. Once you’re in, tap on … at the top right of your screen. This will take you to your profile page. From here, find New Post in your options bar, then choose either Photo or Video. Next, add a caption for your post—you can include anything you want in here!
After logging into your account, you can create a group by tapping on create group button on top right corner of your page. Once you have done that, you will have to enter relevant information like name of group and bio. These are required fields so don’t forget to fill them in before creating.
Click direct message:
If you want to start a group, direct message several people who might be interested in being in it. Make sure that each member’s content is different enough so that your group doesn’t just become one big competition for followers and likes.
Click on create group icon:
As a group administrator, you can create up to 1,000 groups. To begin creating a group, click on your username in your profile page and select create a group from your list of options. You will be prompted to enter a name for your group. Once you have entered it, click create group. If you already know who you want to add as members to your group, jump straight ahead to inviting members below. Otherwise…
Select your friends:
The first step to creating your group is to make sure that you’re friends with all of your members. You don’t have to follow each other, but it’s easier if you do. To add someone as a friend on Instagram, tap their profile picture. From there, select add as friend. Repeat until everyone in your group is a friend with one another.

Adding New Members to Instagram Group
If you want to add someone new to your group, simply enter their username into one of your existing posts. Doing so will prompt them to accept or decline membership. If they accept, they’ll be added to your group within a few minutes! Similarly, if you want to leave a group, just post a photo asking members to remove you from their collection.
Tap chat option and type a message:
Tap to start a chat. Type a message and tap to send. Or reply to a specific person’s comment. In Messages, you can also add more people by tapping Add People below your text field, then tapping their names from your contact list. To send a photo or video, just tap Camera in Messages too. It’s that easy!
