How to Get Members for Telegram Channel or Group?

Telegram channels are getting more and more popular.

The benefits of them are obvious: based on popular messenger,

users can easily combine personal communication and all useful and fun content in one place,

high engagement rate and growing popularity of Telegram.

Today the most popular Telegram channels have more than 3 million subscribers.

But how to grow your channel to this large scale?

There is the list of the Top 5 ways how to get Telegram members.

And by combining some of them you may get to great result

1. Add members – friends and friends of your friends

You can add 200 first Telegram Channel members for free from your own contacts.

Once the limit of 200 is reached, this possibility is automatically off.

But you can still share your channel in private messages with your contacts

and ask your friends to spread your link to their friends.

Some good networking can boost 200-300 members in your channel within a few days.

Pros: absolutely free, easiest way to add first Telegram members, great for a start.

Cons: a limited number of members, not possible to grow a big channel,

not targeted subscribers (your friends are there just to support

your new beginning and with time they will probably leave it).

2. Promotion on Social media 

Use Social media for your Telegram channel promotion: share links on Quora,

Facebook Pages, Instagram, or jump on trending TikTok. Use your own communities,

create new ones or ask small influencers to help you.

Pros: free.

Cons: takes a lot of time and effort to spread your links,

high competition, no guarantees to get any members.

3. Buy real telegram members

There are online services where everyone can buy real Telegram members.

This method keeps advantages of bots (fast growth, reasonable price,

guarantees – you pay for what you get) and paid advertising (real people).

Pros: fast promotion, real users, less expensive than paid advertising,

guarantees (if you pay for 1000 members, you will get 1000 followers).

Cons: more expensive than bots, can be not targeted.

4. Buy bots

Going from 0 to 40,000 members in one day? It’s easy if you add fake Telegram members.

Bots are not real follower or even people, they are users generated by special software.

Basically, there is no use from these members (they won’t view your posts, won’t buy your products),

but they increase the actual number of your followers.

In return, it can attract real users to join (new subscribers better join big channels, not small ones).

But there is one huge problem: Telegram deletes these members.

If you have 40,000 followers today, it doesn’t mean tomorrow you will still have them.

Pros: cheap, fast growth, a great choice if you look just for a big number.

Cons: inactive and useless users, all of them will be deleted at any time

5. Telegram Channel catalogs

Another way to get members for your channel or group is to be posted in catalogs.

There are more than 50 catalog websites you can get into. One of the most famous and biggest is Tgstat.

Pros: free, people can outreach your channel through Google search.

Cons: a small percentage of people use catalogs, not suitable for fast

and big growth, high competition between similar channels.
