How to Create a Following For Your Telegram Group

Telegram is the most important social media channel for crypto world. It’s anonymous, encrypted and anti-government, just like Bitcoin.

However, like growing any social media channel, growing Telegram takes time, effort and money. Luckily Telegram offers shortcuts that other social media networks do not, which makes it even more effective.

Telegram Channel or Telegram Group?

If you really want to grow your audience on Telegram you should set up a group. Telegram Group can be grown very fast, but this cannot be done with the Channel.

Create a Bounty Campaign and Airdrop

Most ICOs grow their Telegram Group by arranging a bounty campaign or an Airdrop — aka free digital currency.

Plenty of reputable altcoins offer free coins or tokens in order to promote their product–so much that people like Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, writes on his Twitter “nongiver of Ether.”

Airdrops and bounty campaigns are a great way to create awareness about your project. Likewise, it is a great way to get your digital currency into the crypto economy.

It is common to offer promotional incentives, like getting crypto rewards for promoting an altcoin on social media or joining a Telegram group.

This is a win-win for everyone. The new business gets free marketing and potential strong influencers and the new user gets free digital currency for simply talking about it.

If done correctly, this method brings a lot of new people to the Telegram group.

Sure, it requires a lot of work and dedication. But it is worth it.

Advertising your Telegram group

The first place you should start when creating a new Telegram group or channel is social media. This is your virtual megaphone. Bitcointalk, while technically a forum, is your first target. This is the water cooler of the cryptocurrency scene — where all the crypto enthusiasts hangout to get their fill of all things blockchain.

From there, you will want to write blog posts about your product and even your Telegram group and include your Telegram icon for sharing.

Additionally, make sure that you include the link to your group in e-mails and newsletters to registered subscribers.

You could also advertise your group with 3rd party media, but use this with caution. It is not always effective and will most certainly result in very high cost-per-lead (CPL) bills. As a startup, you don’t want any unnecessary expenses.

And this goes without saying, but make sure that you include a link to your telegram channel on your website. It’s probably one of the most common oversites that we have seen, likely because WordPress Templates and such have not put it in as given that you’re going to use it like LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter.

But if you’re a crypto or blockchain entrepreneur, Telegram is a must.

Adding people to Telegram group

The most effective way to grow your Telegram group is by manually adding people to it. Everyone can try to do it themselves, however you can get banned by adding too many members too quickly. Henceforth, you will have to create several new accounts. And this can be time-consuming.

Moreover, since you need to enter a new phone number for every account, it will become quite expensive.

This is why we offer professional Telegram inviting service. Together, we can create the group and expand it.
